So we finally have an 8K mirrorless camera with a headphone socket I may add.
Before you rush out and spend your £4000 there are some serious flaws this camera is going to give you from day one.
For UK customers 8K 25P creates a lot of heat (There is no fan in this camera) and as the heat builds up in the camera you will get short recording times even as low as 15 minutes or less.
No one understands why Canon decided to go down this route as a filmmakers we need equipment we can rely on.
It seems to me Canon wanted to have the first interchangeable mirrorless camera filming in 8K to jump ahead of the competition but with no fan to cool things down have they jumped in too soon.

You have to question why Canon did not look at the Panasonic S1H recording at 4K and ask themselves why Panasonic needed a fan in their camera.
CANON UPDADE ON OVERHEATING
Canon just issued an official statement regarding the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 overheating during video recording. The company says they used a magnesium alloy body and “overheat control” for better heat management. Canon didn’t want to include a fan to keep the body compact and weather-sealed. The EOS R5 can only record up to 20 minutes in 8K and up to 15 minutes in 4K 120fps. After that, the camera needs up to 20 minutes to recover before starting to record again.
HDW…We can safely say the R5 won’t be finding itself on any blockbuster studio set anytime soon with that crippling 20 minute wait between takes.
