Is the Canon R5 Worth It? with John Gress
When production models of the Canon EOS R5 hit the streets, the internet was littered with videos about the camera overheating. I even contributed to the fury. But in this article, like in the video I posted, I will focus on what the camera can do rather than what it can’t do.
If you primarily press a shutter, you’re going to love this camera; if you’re more inclined to yell “rolling,” this camera may not be for you. But if you do both and lean toward the former, this camera will be a great choice, as there is no other camera with a high megapixel sensor that offers this camera’s limited high-quality video modes.
I work primarily as a commercial studio photographer and video is something that I do 5% to 25% of the time, depending on my client’s needs. So, this camera will work for me! In fact, I plan on replacing both of my 5D Mark IVs with R5s.
If you’re coming from a DSLR like me, the following four features will be revolutionary; if you’re coming from another Canon mirrorless camera, you can expect big improvements over previous models.
