Preview models as well as the first round of pre-orders for the Canon R5 have shipped, and reviews are coming in droves. The rumors of possible overheating for the R5 proved true, but, as some have pointed out, it seems this camera is a victim of its own marketing. Many are canceling their Canon R5 pre-orders and swaying towards the Sony a7S III. The R5 is not a videographer's camera. The R5 is a photography camera that just so happens to also do incredible video. So for all of the photographers out there who have been waiting to get there hands on the new Canon mirrorless camera, watch this incredibly detailed review by Gordon Laing before canceling anything.
Filmmakers can rejoice: the a7S III is here. Five years in the making, this monster of a camera seems to have been worth the wait. While some may have been hoping for 8K video, it is clear the new a7S model still exceeds expectations with its 4K 10-bit video at 120 fps. We also have bitrates of up to 600 mbps (for those counting, that is six times the previous capability). The new model also provides vast improvements in low-light shooting and autofocus. The a7S III can also record 16-bit raw when connected to an external recorder through its full-size HDMI port.
There's been quite a transition over the past few years. The mirrorless camera used to be seen a fun alternative to the more formidable DSLR. For still photographers, they were these small cameras that videographers seemed to love, but they had no place in our professional kits. Now, all the major brands, including Nikon and Canon, are perfecting the mirrorless camera.
