Review: Canon EOS R5
First with 8K video
Here is the review of the Canon EOS R5, the first camera with 8K video. A double-edged sword, it turns out.
Canon EOS R5
Almost the complete camera with 8K video, extreme resolution, insane firing rate and near perfect ergonomics.
8K is demanding for both the camera, the computer - and the photographer. Short battery life without vertical grip, and high price.
