The Odyssey of the Canon EOS R5 – Is this really the best hybrid camera?

This is my long term “review” of the Canon R5 and I’ve taken a different approach than normal in that I decided to split it into two much parts of a more manageable length.This isn’t about specs, it’s about really living with and using the camera over 4 months.

Part 1 goes through the journey Canon took to get to the R5, the truly disastrous launch, why I still bought one, the initial issues and how the 8K truly is something special. Part 2 takes us away from the grey skies of London to the Greek sun of Skiathos where I attempt to film the island in 8K and also put the animal autofocus to the test with the island’s cats. It will also show why, over the past 3 and a half months, I came to realise that this truly is the best all in one photo and video camera you can buy right now.

Don’t worry I haven’t fallen out of love with my Sony A7S III, it will all become clear in this two part study of the Canon R5. Easily the best stills camera they have ever made.
