Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

One thought on “Canon R5 pre production model is an exceptional photographic tool.

  1. You say “…..its not just a video tool”?

    Surely it’s primarily intended as a stills camera – the video mode is just extra? So why any surprise to find it takes good still photographs!?

    HDW : David I think you will find Canon hoped this would be the successor to the 5D as this camera alone gave Canon one of the most successful sales years of all time due to its video features. Sadly due to promoting the 8K as a “feature” and the inherent overheating problems most of us have been very negative about the R5 forgetting its primary role as a photographic tool.
