Shadow in EOS R5

Screenshot 2023-11-05 at 12.18.41 PM.pngThis is the shadow that I am getting in the R%5. Any idea why this is happening. I have 2 5D MarkIII and I wish I had never upgrade to R5. I just dont like the colors, contrast and these terrible shadows.

This is very hard to assess with a very limited amount of information - you are not proving the information we are requesting and will not let us see an original photo. We need to know any specific settings you have made to the camera, and ALL of the EXIF data.  We don't even know for sure what PP has been applied!
It's like going to a hospital, refusing to be examined and not giving all the symptoms.  We cannot provide a decent diagnosis under those conditions.

The R5 is an awesome camera, and way ahead of any of the other cameras you own, but is has a focus and exposure system that may take some getting used to. 

I suggest you go out without a client and take a couple of photos that exhibit these symptoms and post a link to the RAW, unprocessed images. Then we can help you.

Hi Julian and welcome to the forum:

Sorry to learn you are having a bad experience. The R5 is an excellent camera, and a major step up from the 5DIII - and I have owned that model myself and currently shoot with the R5.  These mirrorless cameras take a bit of getting used to, so let's see what we can do to sort this out for you.  In the meantime, if you have not done so, I recommend really downloading the manual and checking out the areas you have issues with.  Also you might want to check out some of the material in this video on the R5:

Do you mean noise in the shadows?  If not, please clarify.

Can you please provide an unprocessed and uncropped image (pref RAW) image, via a shared link, so we can get an idea of how much this is magnified and the original exposure  Also, it would be helpful to have the full EXIF data for the image.


cheers, TREVOR

Have you raised the shadows a lot in post?

Do you see the shadow in the original picture?  The weird shadow that you are seeing looks like auto-masking vs something that the R5 would do.

Yep, looks software induced.

Hi julianesaccon,

Please tell us what lens or lenses you are shooting with.  Are you adapting EF lenses?  If so, are you using a Canon branded adapter?

Your entire image appears to be out of focus and poorly exposed.  

I'm confident we can help you identify what the issue is.

Please post the original file (hopefully you shot in RAW) to a One Drive or Dropbox folder so we can examine the file.

What software did you edit with?

Yes, the exposure is not perfect. End of day, middle of the forest, but this kind of shadow never happened with the Mark IV. It is a client photo, I don't feel comfortable about posting the raw file here. I am using an adapter, Canon brand original and 50MM LENS. ISO was 1000.

Definitely strange.  What were other details about the photo and where you took it.  e.g. shutter speed.  Could there have been anything that temporarily obscured that area along the right-hand side of the face and hair?

In Photoshop, I traced an outline of what my eyes could see was an edge of a darkened area.  Though I couldn't find its right-side edge; even after applying some "help" layers).
