Furthermore, according to MirrorlessRumors, they have received a leak from a source claiming that they have successfully recorded around 20 minutes of 8K raw continuously without any overheating issues.
Canon EOS R5 8K Video Recording Options
In a nutshell, the latest rumor says the following:
- a 512GB CFExpress card can hold about 21 minutes of 8K RAW
- the leaker has verified there is NO CROP in 4K/120fps and 8K/30p
- apparently the EOS R5 does not support recording video to both cards
- no overheating issues so far when recording 8K raw for 20 minutes continuously.

And here are a few key takeaways from the video menu screen above.
- 8K-D stands for 17:9 8K DCI resolution (8192 x 4320)
- 8K-U is for the broadcast 16:9 spec 8K (7680 x 4320)
- The camera, whose screen is displayed in the leaked photo above appears to be set to PAL mode as we see both 24p and 25p frame rates options in 8K-D.
- In addition to RAW, we can identify an 8K All-I and IPB (Long-GOP) options. The latter will provide a smaller file size.
Will the Canon EOS R5 live up to the hype? Or will the Canon Cripple Hammer rear its ugly head? I guess, we’ll find out on July 9th.
