Gene Nagata a.k.a. Potato Jet was pretty excited when the Canon EOS R5 was announced but the dramas surrounding recording limits caused by overheating have become a significant factor. Nagata, along with fellow YouTuber Armando Ferreira, has spent some time testing it alongside the new a7S III from Sony and put the two cameras through their paces before coming to a decision as to which one he wants to add to his arsenal.
Nagata goes into some good detail here, discussing lens choice, log files, megapixels, and more. From this video, you wonder if one of the next big battles between the two systems will be IBIS. Nagata is hugely impressed with the stabilization offered by the R5 in concert with Canon’s IS lenses, and perhaps due to its smaller throat, Sony may have hit some limitations. Right now, Sony has a far bigger array of glass, but the stabilized lenses to be found among the RF system might make Canon the better option for many videographers in the future.
