R5 still locking up /frozen screen/EVF with 1.1.1 firmware.
Happened again with 500 mm f4 mkii
If you are having issues with the camera, then I suggest that you contact Canon Support.
This is only a user forum. It is not Canon Support.
Friends, I did report the problems I've been having to Canon support (via email). I got a prompt reply from a tech who read my report of problems (as in my earlier post). He was responsive and polite. He had no solutions but said he would forward my account of the problems "to engineering".
Quite obviously the R5, wonderful camera that it is, is not *quite* ready for prime time. I'd advise against relying it as your sole camera on assignment until the problems have been addressed with appropriate firmware updates. I haven't had a chance to retest with firmware 1.1.1. But, based on the reponses above, it's probably not bug-free just yet.
Can't wait for that happy moment. It really is a wonderful camera.
Hey Charly, keep posting your issues, please. Some users have forgotten that this is a community free to post any issue, inquiry, teach, document something, anything related to Canon cameras and lenses. I hate when those guys write (and waste a post comment) to say "this site is not for this or for that". Please, read the Thread title: "EOS R5 known bugs", so, please keep posting your issues. Maybe it's not a general R5, maybe it's only your camera, or it's general... That's why we are here, to know and share more info about this camera.
