EOS R5 How to Configure Dual Memory Slots

I've just received my Canon R5 and cannot figure out how to configure the CFexpress card to store Raw and the SD card for JPG's? It keeps storing them together and I can't understand the printed manual or the expanded PDF manual?


I have a 128Gb CFexpress B card and a 64Gb SD card. I would like the RAWs on the CFexpress card and the JPG's on the SD card. A step by step would be nice!

If you cannot understand the printed User Manual, then you should contact Canon Support at 1-800-OK-CANON so that they can walk you through it.

Re: EOS R5 How to Configure Dual Memory Slots

  1. With cards in both slots.
  2. SETUP Menu 1 (yellow tab1)
  3. "Record func+card/folder sel." (top row)
  4. STILL PHOTO "Rec options" (second row down); TOP ROW STILL/VIDEO separate must be DISABLED
  5. "Rec separately"
  6. SHOOT Menu 1 (red tab1)
  7. Specify RAW for card 1 and JPEG for card 2.
