More R5 info

Hopefully this won't get deleted, but Tech Radar interviewed David Parry of Canon (a product marketing specialist) and asked several questions about the R5. Some interesting stuff. I look forward to the camera's release. The last time I posted some info about the R5, in which a Canon source confirmed specs, our crackerjack mods deleted it almost immediately.

Did the beans being spilled include why they're calling it the R5 instead of the R2? Canon's numbering system has always been more than a little confusing, and this strikes me as a missed opportunity to rationalize it a bit.

Yes, he explained it. 

 

"So is that why this camera is called the EOS R5?

"It's aimed at that level of the market. This isn't a replacement for the 5D Mark IV or anything like that. But this is a mirrorless 5-series, it's aimed at that segment of the market," he said.

"Which makes sense because in film days we had the EOS 5, then with digital DSLRs we had the 5D, and now we've got the R5 now. So it's all the same sort of level." he added.

Re: More R5 info

This article showed up on my recommended reading list yesterday. 

 

Body looks ok, but I am weary of my need for 45MP and 8K.  But hey, if Canon can squeeze all that in on its new Digic, and it has decent battery life and doesn't overheat it might be a good body.  I'd be fine with 34MP and 4K

 

I am still hoping for a 5D5 as most know.  I have a bad feeling about our trip to Alaska this year but we'll see.

I'm OK with 45 MP, but couldn't care less about 8K, but everything is hybrid now.

 

I am assuming that one or both slots will be CFexpress?

And they delete arbitrarily and with out reason. Could at least tell us why?

I think "hoping" isn't enough.  The day of the shutter is done.

I asked the same question weeks ago, and in fact posted a topic that was explicitly addressed to the mods in the Subject line. 

 

It never received a reply and appears to have been deleted itself. 

 

EDIT: Actually, it did receive replies from scammers. But no mod replied to my query.

Censorship is a sore subject, at least in the U.S. Those who do the censoring are seldom willing to engage in debates about their decisions or to explain the process that led to those decisions.

The day of the mirror is (almost) done. I think the shutter still has some time left.
