Anyone jumping in on the New Canon R5 Bandwagon? I am very tempted to Blow that Dough. I will be starting again from scratch after selling all my Canon equipment 5 years ago so as not to have heavy equipment when traveling. So legacy lens' will not be an issue.

I have looked at all the new info. It seems to be a fine camera, spec. wize. Unless you are seriously into photography, seems like overkill. But as a way to blow that dough, a fine place to go. R6 might be better for you.

Not joining the R5 bandwagon. It's more hype than anything else. The camera comes with a disclaimer of 10-15 minute operation at 73 degrees F before it overheats. I wonder how well it would work in Southern California at 100+ degrees or South Florida at 85+ degrees. Right now we have two Canon DSLRs and two Panasonic mirrorless cameras and a large collection of premium lenses that work on both our Canon and Panasonic cameras. We primarily shoot videos now and use our Panasonic cameras most of the time. My next investment will be a AMD 3990X Threadripper based desktop with a Radeon pro 7 graphics card to speed up my 4K video workflow.

That seems to be just for Hi Res continuous video. It is a little disappointing though. That is common in Mirrorless Cameras, I think. I will debate how much video I will be using it for.

It's also for 4K60p video. I shoot 4K60P with my Panasonic Lumix G9 and never had an overheating problem. The other issue is rolling shutter with Canon cameras. It's not clear how bad it is on the R5 or R6.

But Canon is selling these new accessories to help with that!

I bought the Nikon Z7 a couple of years ago so not in the market.

But you'd expect incremental improvements, though Canon sensors haven't fared as well as counterpart Sony sensors used by Nikon and Sony.

I'm intrigued by the video capabilities, the high frame rates, though I don't use video that much. Also generally high burst capabilities, though I don't shoot sports that much or birds at all.

But also, one of the Youtubers said the level of stabilization may allow you to do up to a 2-second handheld shot. That would be pretty impressive.

However, currently, you can get the Z7 for $1100 less and the Sony A7RIV with a 61 Megapixel sensor for $400 less.

I shot this video on Sunday. We needed to get out of the house and decided to star gazing. It is one of the best locations for astronomy in Southern California.

^Very nice! And I see you caught the comet. It's always a treat when I see one of your videos pop up.

Thanks... We were getting cabin fever and needed to get out. We left our telescopes at home and took three cameras instead. The comet was mostly a dud and barely visible to the naked eye. We needed 4 seconds exposures on that day to capture it from a dark sky. At home we need 10 second exposures now. The views of the Milky Way were amazing and as always the vast majority were attempting to shoot pictures hand held with their smart phones with their flashes on.

We've been in Colorado enjoying the nice weather. Yesterday late afternoon had a visitor. Watched him destroy a log to eat some grubs then sat down for a rest.

If I may ask, what equipment are you using?
