Wish the R5C would get some love, especially CLOG 2.
While I agree with the overall argument of this article, I still can't get behind Sweeney saying she doesn't feel financialy secure while simultaneously living in a 3 million dollar house. If she wants to take a 6 month break, or not feel like she has to constantly be freelancing, she's already made enough money to do just that, if she'd invest it properly and live off the income of those investments. And maybe live in a $1.5 million dollar house, lol? She's clearly spending too much, which is a common problem when people start earning a lot. The term is called "lifestyle inflation" and it is something most people succumb to as their income goes up.

Sure. Okay. Must be nice being the daughter of one of the most famous directors of all time. Honestly, given the head start she's had, the seemingly bottomless financial backing, the support from industry peers and all the benefits that come with being Hollywood royalty, I think Sophia has severely underperformed. Lost in Translation is about the only good thing she's made.
I cant wait to see "Avatar vs Cats".
This is an informative review. While I appreciate the test you did shooting in 8K mode until the camera overheated, I'd love to hear about how long you can shoot when using the 4K mode with 8.2K oversampling. You mentioned you could shoot indefinitely when shooting 4K to the SD card. I'm guessing that was in the lower quality, unlimited 4K mode and not the higher quality, oversampled 4k mode? The link below is to a chart from Canon that illustrates the limitations. I'm guessing the unlimited 4K mode is a setting where instead of oversampling and scaling the 8k sensor, Canon implements line skipping to bring the 8K resolution down to 4k. Footage captured with line skipping may result in a slightly less sharp image with possible aliasing. I'd love to see if there are noticeable quality differences between the lower quality, unlimited 4k mode and the higher quality, limited 4k mode. That is what will make or break this camera in my eyes. If the differences are subtle and minor, I'll be sold on the R5.
The Luxli Taiko has this one beat in size, weight, output, power, diffusion options and it's about the same price. I love Aputure, but they were late to the game with this one. Check out the Luxli... https://www.newsshooter.com/2020/05/15/luxli-taiko-review/
