Wedding filmmaking requires a camera that will film B-Roll in a wide variety of frame rates, as well as continuously record a long wedding ceremony. Is the Canon R5 up to the challenge, or will it overheat and be unreliable? I bought one and put it to the test for wedding videography.

In case you don’t have time to watch, here is the main takeaway:

This camera is guaranteed to overheat filming a wedding, most likely within the first hour. Professionals should not rely on this camera.

Sony A7sii 5 Year Review: Long Live The Lowlight King

It’s looking like Sony will be finally releasing the successor to the A7Sii later this month. It’s been nearly 5 years since the original A7Sii came out, and I for one am ready for it!

I’ve owned the A7Sii since October 2015, and I still film with it nearly every day. Now, here on the eve of the release of the A7Siii and Canon R5, I feel like this is a great time to look back at the Sony A7Sii, the strengths and weaknesses this camera, and talk about what Sony got right and what they got wrong.

I also want to tell you why I still film with it, and why this camera still brings me so much joy five years after its release.
