How to Improve Canon EOS R5 Light Scattering and Record 8K Video

This 2020 we have seen important launches in photography, very efficient cameras for both stills and especially video. One of the most attractive was Canon EOS R5 , a real monster in photography, with a 45-megapixel sensor that delivers outstanding results and the ability to video recording in 8K resolution

The problem with this Canon offering is that it suffers from temperature problems … What the brand itself has already confirmed during the presentation. Well, they didn’t say there was a problem, just the recording time was limited due to the temperature of the camera. Therefore, after a certain number of minutes, depending on the resolution and the number of photographers per second, the camera had to stop to cool down.

  

The problem is that after that time it was not, and even after a certain break it became unusable if you wanted to record something more intense. And of course, having a camera with features that you really can’t use … it’s just plain unattractive.

For this reason, everyone who received it began to try possible alternative and informal solutions to increase the recording time. So they learned that took out the battery the timer was reset and they could continue to use the camera as is. Or by resorting to an external recorder to make the processor work less and lower the internal temperature.

However, the most striking decision was that of this user, who opened the camera (at his own risk) to add a couple of extra heating pads … So the Canon EOS R5 has an added advantage when it comes to heat dissipation, and it now lets you record 8K videos internally without limits.

After placing the heating pads in the area of ​​the Canon Digic processor and a couple more on the DRAM chips, the camera stayed cool for longer. Anything you see in an unedited video can be recorded without a time limit.

Why Canon doesn’t do the same

Seeing all these do-it-yourself solutions popping up, it begs the question why Canon doesn’t do this? Why not improve dispersion by adding something simple a priori, like a second heating pad?

Something must elude us. Because they may still be interested in maintaining a certain range of their film cameras, especially after the release of the EOS Cinema C70, but they could sell many more EOS R5 if this heating issue turned into a simple startup joke.
