EOS R5 known bugs

Just looking for a place where known bugs are listed. Is there such a thing? I've noticed some peculiar things and don't want to add to the forum noise for something thats already been addresed or even posibly working as intended.

 

Thanks!

Same. Very hopeful they have a solution. This is a real issue. Try to get it on video!

I have shot over 3000 images over 4 days last week, and my R5 is ok despite having the same freeze issue intermittently over the past few weeks. The only thing I have done different is not use the CFexpress card just my Sandisk SD 64GB 300mb/s card. It's frustrating when you can't replicate the problem on demand. I am hopeful Canon will have a firmware fix soon

So you don't see the issue if you don't use the CFExpress card?  I have tried 2 different brands of CFExpress cards and seen the issue.

Tony and Chelsea recently reported that they were going to stop using one of the popular brands of CFExpress cards.  It was a couple of months ago, actually.  I think they said ProGrade was too unreliable.

Same. It happens in so many different scenarios. I tried to show my dealer but it won't do it on demand

Try the SD card only and see how things go

I have seen it happen with just an SD. It even bricked a v60 Lexar card and it corrupted all the files.

Might be a camera problem, after all.  Where are you buying your memory cards?
