R5 dual slot recording?

Recommended Posts

I've been digging and can't find anything on this aspect of the R5... Does anyone know if it'll dual-slot record in 8K RAW on the CFExpress and 4K HQ (not the line-skipping version of 4K) on the SD card at the same time? I know the 4K HQ can record up to 30fps on the SD card but I don't know if it can do both at once, or how that might affect the overheating issues. That for me would be pretty significant... even though it's probably not going to be an ideal long-interview camera, if it had a high quality 4K backup in case of card failure I'd consider looking at the Delkin 2TB CFExpress card coming out, for only a third more than the Sony/Sandisk 512GB options that I'd otherwise go with for reliability reasons.

No dual slot recording at all in any mode if I remember correctly (don‘t remember where exactly I read that but pretty sure here on Newsshooter too...).

A user on another forum that I'm on that has the R5 reported that there is dual card recording in 8K RAW modes.

8K/30P RAW + 4K DCI IPB

8K/24P RAW + 4K DCI IPB

8K/24.00P RAW + 4K DCI IPB

 

I interpret this to mean 8K RAW is recorded onto the CFexpress card and 4K onto the SD card.

@Run&Gun You‘re right.
From the R5 manual:
 

Set the recording method for movies.
 

 • Standard
Records movies to the card selected in [ Record/play].

• Auto switch card
Same as [Standard], but recording ends when the card becomes full. When you resume recording, the camera switches to the other card for recording. A new folder is created after switching cards.


• Card 1 RAW, Card 2 mp4
For each recording, a RAW movie is recorded to card 1 and an MP4 movie to card 2, both with the same file number. When one card becomes full, recording is no longer possible.

    • Actually, I need to make a correction regarding the battery capacity. The Canon LP-E6N has a 14Wh rating; whereas, the Canon BP-A30 battery has a 45Wh rating. That's 3.2x the BMPCC4K/6K battery capacity. My IDX NP-F970 equivalent batteries (at 48Wh) give me 188min of 4KDCI recording time (which I gather is far more battery intensive than what the C70 can record), so that's as good, if not better than what the C70 gets out of a BP-A30. The BP-A30 is also physically not much smaller than the NP-F970 battery. Just thought I'd add that info.
    • So Canon has introduced a camera that has a similar design to that of the BMPCC4K/6K, only bulkier. I'll be curious as to whether all the criticism levelled at the design of the latter will be levelled at the former. Perhaps Blackmagic's design wasn't all that bad after all. The C70 also seems to be a bit crippled in what formats are available, but then that's fairly typical with Canon. Edit I: I notice from the comments that there are still those who can't seem to live without a built-in EVF. Edit II: I also notice that there are still people about that complain about the lack of a 5" flip-out screen on the BMPCC4K/6K, the supposedly poor battery life, and now a lack of top handle. The so-called poor battery life of the BMPCC4K (especially) is a real bugbear to me when I hear it. The LP-E6N battery is only 1865MAh; whereas, the BP-A30 is 3200MAh, almost double the capacity of the BMPCC battery. With two LP-E6N batteries, I can get close to 150min of recording time, which is not too bad. With my current setup using an NP-F970 and LP-E6N, I can get four hours of 4KDCI recording. And those NP-F970 batteries (IDX) are far cheaper than the Canon BP-A batteries. Just thought I'd get that off my chest.  
    • @Günther Göberl. I'm not sure what it is, but anything especially to do with landscapes always appeals to me more when it's in a wide format. That project, for me, would not have had the same impact in say a 16:9 format, it would have had a made for TV impression. My view is do what you want, not what someone else dictates. And if some festival dictates a format that kills your creativity, and all that you're then doing is making a film to suit the festival, why even bother?
    • I also opted for 1:2.35 for this project  
    • If you need or reply on peaking alot ,I would recommend changing to "normal" ,set a level and leave it on all the time .. I used to use color (red) but was given the same advise and its really alot better ..
