90% of my time with my R5 + RF100-500 combo is spent doing high-resolution wildlife videos (4KHQ and 4K120p). I do mostly birds including Hummingbirds, Snowy Owls, Ospreys, Terns, Shorebirds, Warblers, Herons and Egrets, Geese and Ducks, Woodland and Grassland birds and others. I do stationary shots and lots of flight shots of all these species in there various habitats.

The two big R5 problems I have to deal with are, 1) rolling shutter during panning shots and, 2) IBIS wobble during handheld shots. I have had to discard many otherwise good clips because of one or the other of these two issues making the footage unusable.

I really hope that the R5II radically reduces, or better yet, eliminates these two issues. Fingers crossed.


I've shot a bunch of 4K HQ and 4K120 but I'm thinking of dabbling into some 8K RAW which will give the ability to crop and stabilize in post. Is there a reason why you don't shoot in 8K RAW or RAW light? Is it because of card space or heating issues?

My PC, which is only 1 year old was tailored to do only 4K video not 8K. It breezes through 4K files really struggles with 8K files so I don't shoot in 8K.
