Reviewer Gordon Laing has done a video showcasing the 8K quality from the Canon EOS R5. The video was recorded, edited, and posted to YouTube in all of its 8K glory.
The quality of the 8K video from the EOS R5 looks great to me, and if you can work around some of the perceived weaknesses, you’re going to get great results from the camera.
So get some coffee while the 8K buffers and enjoy the samples.

It is funny to note that on older computers like the one I am currently using at work, the 8K playback does not play smoothly. Obviously this is an issue with the processing and rendering power of my work computer, but it has no problem playing back 4K, so the quality of the 8K is damn impressive. Super detailed.

Darn... I was hoping this was going to be an R5 w/beta firmware used with a Ninja V+ preview.

Using the Ninja V+ you can get Prores 8k and work around the overheating issues

I heard the firmware update was going to be released earlier than the promised August 18th RUMORED date. Counting down the days till August 17th!!! It will probably coincide with my delivery of the RF 100 2.8 that I preorder what seems like a year ago, not to mention my Ninja V+ is gathering dust waiting for the update, thought about putting the + with my V on my DJI RS2, making side view mirrors hahahahahahahah

It looks good. And to note the playback on 8k was smooth as butter on my M1 Mac mini with a 1 Gbps connection (ethernet not WiFI).

I have posted 1080p to YouTube that didn’t survive their mangling and compression that well.

The comparisons of blown up sections are probably the most telling parts of the video.
