The one feature I really wish was published somewhere, but I have a feeling I'm going to have to just wait for the instruction manual to be published to find it... Does the R5 let you register an AF point??

Well that was one deep breath and the pre order button pressed. The price of CF express cards made me wince though. :cry:

Low pass filter on a 45 Mpx sensor. Maybe good for some but I so much prefer to ditch the filter as I rarely have problems with Moire and the filter does give image degradation.
Canon deserves some criticism for AA filters that have been too strong in the past. But they seem to be going with weaker AA filters now (aka the 1DX3).

If they have gone with a weaker AA in the 45mp R5 then we have a point of reference with the 50mp 5Ds and 5DsR. The "image degradation" between these two amounts to a slight difference in sharpening parameters in post and is basically invisible except when pixel peeping.

I'm glad to see that Canon is bucking the industry trend of no AA filter, and instead appears to be going with weaker AA filters.

Canon claims that the R5 outresolves the 5DSR. If so, both of us will be delighted.

I hit reply and typed my response before realizing 'it's Alan, we've had this debate before.' :LOL: I guess I haven't had enough caffeine yet this morning.

Any way, I hope Canon is being truthful and we are both delighted. Having a sensor stack that resolves more than the 5DsR (despite the 5mp sampling advantage of the 5DsR) yet still blocks moire and aliasing...at least somewhat...would be quite impressive.

I have a feeling you'll have one before I do. If so, I look forward to your comments and comparisons to your 5DsR.

Pack it up boys, we're done here. This thing is dead on arrival, literally unusable. Essential features it appears to lack:

  • Flash sync faster than 1/250s
  • Internal/software ND filter
  • Shutter speeds faster than 1/8000s
  • Dual gain sensor
  • Pixel shift hi-res mode
  • Global shutter
  • XLR ports
  • Waveforms (probably)
  • Quad Pixel CMOS AF
  • Integrated collapsible EF adapter
  • Air cooling
  • IP68 rated weatherproofing
  • Optical viewfinder
  • Holographic LCD
  • Radioisotope power source
  • Cup holder
  • Weather control
  • Ability to see into the future
  • Anything else?
DPR seems to be of a similar opinion. They admitted that the thing is OK. but just .... I mean, nothing special, right..:

"... Given the EOS R5's higher price of entry, it's encouraging to see it's at least competitive in almost every way (the lack of a high-res shot mode is the most obvious omission). But most significantly, it offers more speed, higher-resolution video and future-proof HDR video and stills capture over the other cameras here..." Boom!!! :D


What a bunch of....

so no gps huh :rolleyes:
Looks like GPS will be through Bluetooth, and the Canon Connect app on your phone. Not an ideal solution, but definitely better than no GPS at all. Hopefully it will be better than I"m expecting, seeing as how terrible the Connect app is (as an example, if you have more than 10,000 images on your camera, it won't allow you to connect it to your phone).

I hope the GP-E2 is still supported. It would be a shame if that gets relegated to the backpack as logger :(

Pre-order done. Adorama was nice enough to toss in a 128 GB CF Express card, case, extra battery, and UV filter to sweeten the deal. Got the kit with the 24-105 to try out the RF glass, plus the EF converter to use the old glass. Can't wait! My 5D Mk III was getting soooo long in the tooth at nearly 8 years of diligent service.
Thats a great deal, the CF express card is £279 and the battery £114 so pretty generous. I presume it was the R5?

The EOS R allowed 10bit 4k with an external recording. has anyone seen any info on whether the R5 will have a bump when using an external recorder?

I suspect that when we get to 60MP, the filters might be eliminated. I could occasionally see some small bits of moire here and there.

How'd you manage to swing that?
It's through Bluetooth and the connect app:

Bluetooth Capability.

Bluetooth connectivity offers continuous connection, and allows the EOS R5 camera to automatically connect to a smart device that is paired with the Canon Camera Connect app. This allows a number of functions from easy image transfer to remote shooting, to adding GPS information to your photos and videos and more.
