2 x 5D IV
- Feb 26, 2017
Let me get this straight, Canon introduces the R5 and R6 that offer a time limited 8K video capture. if you are a freelancer that regularly shoots 8K (I would love to understand what camera shoots 8K and is in the R5 Price range at the same time) for an extended period of time, then R5 is not for you.Let me get this straight, Canon introduces the R5 and R6 that offer 8K video capture but it overheats and shuts down so it can cool back down. The recent firmware does very little to remedy the situation and Canon continues to take heat over it. Some users are having success extending the record times by recording to an external drive. As a freelancer, I own two of the same bodies for continuity and serves as a backup. How difficult is it to swap an identical body out in the event that one overheats? If you’re going to capture at 8K, there are certain risks for shooting at technologies razor edge, yes?
some users (as you put it) are having success extending the record times by recording to an external drive.
your statement is factually incorrect: ALL users that are recording to an external drive are having success extending the record times.
