I really hope the next firmware update address stills centric additions such as a simulated shutter release noise for electronic shutter. I won't go into why I think this is needed here, but it think it would be a great addition. Also, I still do not think there is a way to keep the EVF on all the time while shooting. There are instances where I do not want the EVF to turn off until I turn it off, but as much as I have tried I cannot get the R5 to do this. Either give me a way to do that, or make the time it takes for the EVF to go from black to on much shorter. Yes, I can half-press the shutter button on the way up to get the EVF to come on, but I don't particularly like that solution. And, I don't like the idea of putting tape over the sensor to simulate my eye being at the EVF to keep it on. Anyway, there are stills centric improvements that can be made and I hope they come soon. Cheers everyone.As a Photographer, these firmware updates have been useless and done little to address issues with the camera for Photographers.
– Fixes a phenomenon, in which when shooting with Canon Log 3, if the [View Assist.] setting is set to [On], the image in the viewfinder and on the LCD screen is displayed brighter than it should be.
I prefer Cinema Gamut because it matches better with Canon cinema cameras such as the C70 and C300 in CLOG3 mode.When shooing in C-Log 3, what's the best color space option? BT.709 or Cinema Gamut?
No, not natively but you can shoot RAW and then change it to CLOG2 if you want.Is there support for C-Log 2 in this firmware update?
Yes, finally fast turn arounds from Canon. I actually appreciate the video features and development focus from Canon with the new R cameras. Lets hope they keep it up with the R3 and beyond!Yesss! Canon log 3 isn't overblown on the display anymore! I don't know how that was overlooked during QA. But it was a pretty quick turnaround which is all that matters.
other than Adobe.. what do you guys use to process CLOG3 files? I'm not having the best results (tried Shotcut)
The TWO main ones?your 2 main choices are Premiere and Davinci Resolve. I'm firmly in the Premiere Pro camp. editing the 4k CLOG3 files are a breeze on my system (AMD Ryzen 3900X with Nvidia GTX 1080). that 8k footage. man, that is a beast...
Same. My M1 MBP Pro breezes through everything except the 8K RAW recording modes.The TWO main ones?
As long as you are on Mac I use FCPX with Canon Log files and it works beautifully. The difficult 10bit Canon files work a dream on the relatively inexpensive new M1 Macs.
I use Final Cut on my M1 MacBook Pro. It cuts through even the 8k Clog 3 422 files like butter. It’s uncanny how fast it is. Resolve will work well with it as well.

I would even go as far as saying if you are thinking of upgrading a PC just to work with Canon’s recent mirrorless video codecs and have a decent monitor, purchasing an M1 Mac Mini and FCPX would probably be cheaper.I use Final Cut on my M1 MacBook Pro.

#4-New FeatureHow about the issues numbered 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12?
What issues?#4-New Feature
#6-New feature (and let's be honest, Who uses FTP to transfer images off a camera?)
#7-New Feature (same FTP comment as above)
#8-New feature (and admittedly a good one for I suspect a lot of people)
#9-Finally fixing a problem that afflicts people who take photos.
#10-Same as above
#11-Same as above
#12-Same as above
I do appreciate new features, I truly do, but compared to the Canon 5D IV the Canon R5 has usability issues that should be fixed. I for the life of me cannot understand why they were allowed to ship the bodies with the issues.
