Interesting points and it sounds like you do a lot of comparing manufacturers and liking things they do. Not that there is anything wrong with that.1) Look at what Sony and Panasonic gave us in video in a smaller body, with no weird self imposed limits, Slog 2&3, without over heating and 4k60, Yes I know it’s not near the same photography wise.
2)Have you tried being inconspicuous or mobile with a cinema camera? They are huge and cumbersome to carry around, even worse rigged out.
The problem isn’t that this isn’t an amazing photography tool, it’s that it’s probably just as capable tool for video if Canon would unlock it .Canon shooters would like to have something to rival the other smaller video cameras of other brands( A7s, Gh5, BMPCC). Hopefully in the same body.
The interesting thing about your points is that both the Sony and Panasonic don't do 8K and as you acknowledge are not nearly the same photography wise, so are not a genuine comparison. The second thing is, no I haven't tried being inconspicuous or mobile with a cinema camera and never will. My point was that most of the vlogs, you tube videos and proposed solutions like removing the card and battery, using an external power source and an external recorder etc are relevant for studio or inside use whereas the R5 is clearly designed for mobile photography and with the best will in the world was never intended as a professional / commercial video camera to replace dedicated cinema line cameras.
Anyone with a computer knows how they generate heat when processing images and as they are generally stationary items, have big fans built in to cool them. The R5 isn't a stationary computer and unless Canon wanted to make it larger, adding a fan and then destroy the cinema line product range, it was never going to be as capable. As I said, the marketing was terrible and should never have focused on the 8K video aspects but it is what it is and we cant change that but we can deal with it without continuously harping on about what could or should have been and how other manufacturers are doing things.
There are loads of fantastic cameras out there like the new Sony which is clearly a video centric camera but we shouldn't compare it to the R5 as it isn't the same thing. Sony have their way of moving forward, as do Canon, Panasonic and Nikon etc and all have their benefits and drawbacks. We are lucky that we live in a time where we can choose whatever we like, it's your decision at such an amazing time but we shouldn't moan about something that has already happened and we cant change.
I spend far too much time on this site and need to get out more lol. Have a great day everyone and keep safe!
