    Best of the best

    This camera is a beast! As an upgrade from my old Canon 70d, this camera blows it away in everything it does and can do. I have primarily been using it as a video camera, shooting clips for church services, but have shot some photos as well and am impressed on so many levels. Design/Sturdiness This camera feels like a Canon. It feels sturdy, it fits in my hands well just like other Canon models. The body is slightly less deep than other mirrored cameras, but this is not really noticeable when lenses are attached. One thing to note is that when the R5 is off and you move the body around and lightly shake it there is a slight movement of the sensor. This is part of the IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) system and is normal. When the camera is on, this is not an issue. This was a little surprising to me though after purchasing a $3000+ camera! Compatibility I shoot the R5 with the following equipment: Canon RF 35mm f1.8 Macro STM Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8 L II USM with EF-EOS R mount adapter Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II with EF-EOS R mount adapter Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 IS II USM with EF-EOS R mount adapter The minor inconvenience of having to use a mount adapter for the EF lenses is overshadowed by the fact that the camera treats both the RF and EF lenses the same regarding AF speed, clarity and compatibility. I have had no issues at all even in low light with the 70-200mm finding faces and eyes for quick AF. Honestly, the eye detection AF is one of the most amazing things about this camera. And YES, the animal eye AF works well too and there is a noticeable difference in capturing pets or animal's eyes. Battery/Other Features The new LP-E6NH is a great battery for this camera. I can go a full day of recording 1080p video clips without having to recharge (adds up to a 2+ hours of clips). This battery also has the ability to be charged through the USB-C cable that is provided. That same USB-C cable can also transfer photos and videos from the camera to your computer (note that the cable will not power the camera and transfer images/videos at the same time). Using the USB-C as a data transfer comes in handy if you don't have a dedicated CF-Express card reader. The R5 uses a micro HDMI clean output which is nice for a field monitor, but the micro part is a little frustrating. I am always worried I'm going to break the cord or port since it is so small. Yes, I recommend this camera, yes it is expensive, but is the best you can get at this time. The EVF is great, but I have grown accustom to using just the screen as well. Both work great and are surprisingly accurate. Shooting 4k video is awesome - no, I have not had any issues with overheating. Shooting 8k videos is ridiculous and unnecessary but fun to tell your friends that you can. Yes, the Canon R5 is worth the investment.

    Stunningly beautiful after brief learning curve

    An amazing upgrade from my Canon 90D!! Absolutely top quality typical Canon. My photos are noticeably sharper shooting with the RF 24-105 lens. Honestly the menu options for those of you familiar with Canon’s DSLR menu is roughly the same but way way more intense. There are so many setting and sub settings in this thing that I’ll be honest for the first couple hours setting it up and using it I felt like I had never touched a camera before. With all the added features that my 90D doesn’t have left me wondering if I was even setting up the AF, Settings, menus correctly. First few photos ended up soft, flat, and some even out of focus. Strangely this was using the exact same basic ISO, Shutter speed, and aperture as my 90D that took rock solid, tack sharp images. Thing with the R5 is the settings while perfect for the 90D are not perfect for the R5. Most importantly where ISO is concerned. I have found that for instance 1/500 at F4 (the RF lens I used lowest aperture) at ISO 800 indoors for photos of my kiddo running around ended up dark and completely underexposed. I allowed the camera to choose Setting the ISO to auto meant it was setting it to 25600. This was showing perfect exposure. Now on my 90D 25600 equals ungodly noise in the photos. On the R5 it equaled slight noise akin to ISO 1600 on the 90D. So I have found that strangely the camera tends to want to shoot at much higher ISO values than the 90D. I’m not sure if this is purely environmental (lighting, ambience, etc) or if the ISO levels are somehow programmed to need to run high to expose the same as a non mirrorless DSLR would. I tried this same thought out by using my Tamron 35mm 1.4F prime EF lens on the R5 with the EF/RF adapter. I took a couple shots with the R5/Tamron and 90D/Tamron. Same lighting conditions, same Manual settings. The 90D consistently allowed a much lower ISO setting than the R5 before being severely under exposed. So I found that strange and interesting. Outside in cloudy/overcast conditions the R5 shoots sharp, perfectly focused, and clean with any EF or RF lens I have tried. Even at 1/30, F8, ISO 100. The photos are sharp without any blur from hand holding at that shutter speed. On the 90D with same settings the photos suffer from hand shake blur at that Shutter speed. But just changing the shutter to a hand operated friendly speed on the 90D churned out under exposed images unless I dropped the F down to F4 or lower and upped the shutter speed to 1/250 or higher leaving the ISO below 800. So in short I have no idea what the R5 is programmed to do differently that would cause the ISO to need to be higher than a non mirrorless camera but regardless it’s one of thos
