Does anyone know whether the R5 has a digital zoom in 1080p, and 4K, similar to the Sony Clear Zoom?
This would turn a 70-200 f/2.8 into a 70-600 in 1080p, which would be incredibly useful

Puke. In body or no sale.
So, it's no sale for me and I'll have to stick to my 5D4s - bank account will be happy.
If I hadn't already sold my Mark 4, lack of GPS might have given me pause. I use it in most of my photography, so not having it built-in is a bit of an inconvenience. But realistically, I only need it in very specific circumstances. I would definitely still prefer it built-in, but if the Bluetooth way works okay, it's not a dealbreaker. The R5 so much more than the R5- GPS or no.

Why would you need GPS? That just makes forensics work too easy.
It's a requirement in much scientific photography; in biology, archaeology, geography, geology, oceanography (not many landmarks out there), and many other fields, a photo may be useless without location data. Not having it in my R5 will be an annoyance, but not a deal killer for me.

And not everyone is paranoid about having people know where they are. My home address is in the telephone book, in state records freely available on-line, and in the Chinese Ministry of State Security database, thanks to their hacking the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. Am I worried? Do I give a rat's knobby kneecaps? Not in the least! As for the forensic aspect, I would recommend that, if you commit a crime while carrying a GPS-enabled camera, including a smartphone, don't take a selfie at the crime scene.

8K means 16x 1080p , basicly you could crop later, but this is really interesting. Can we get inbody 16x crop zoom out R5 :)

Recording 8K is too much data, and would be really really hard to work with in post. I would reserve that for truly special cases, of which I don't have one right now. But recording in 1080p and having a functional digital zoom would be really useful all of the time. Even having a digital zoom while recoding in 4K would be awesome. Every prime lense becomes a zoom, and you wouldn't have to deal with the cumbersome 8K files.

Just saw this screen in a video. GPS device settings... I wish I could see what its options are.
The R, RP and M6II have the same menu entry. On the R and RP it's for both the GP-E2 and the bluetooth connections to the phone app, on the M6II it's just about the bluetooth connection to the phone app.

Can't have built-in ND that can turn on or off without making the camera twice the size and remove the shutter like those cinema cameras. Those are a lot bigger and also very expensive, so the economics and functions make them feasible to do.

It makes no sense for stills cameras, unless they are practically made into video cameras and cost 6000$+ as well.
Canon actually has a patent for a sensor that can do built-in ND. It doesn't sound appreciably bigger than standard sensors. It can also do nearly double dynamic range and get rid of rolling shutter.

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.
Hi,
Just curious, did you call and ask for these extra items? I am not seeing them on the website as included with purchase.
Is this the benefit of speaking to a human instead of ordering online?

I’m looking for a little clarity about the 4K recording...

I’ve seen multiple places that the 4K is recorded full frame (no crop). I’ve also seen that there is a 4K HQ which uses all the pixels and then downsamples the footage to 4K. And I’ve also seen that there is a crop mode.

Will the footage be that much better using 4K HQ as opposed to just “regular” 4K?

I’m mostly getting this camera to use 4K at 24 and 120fps. I feel like I’ve been overwhelmed with info the last two days, ha!

4K HQ is better than regular ( pixel binning ) 4K ... Regular 4K has no over heating issues. 4K HQ and 4K120FPS have over heating issues.

May be R6 is better. Nobody talks about R6 4K overheating issues. R6 has 4K HQ donwsampled from 5.5K. If there is no overheating issues, then maybe R6 is better option.
