The latest rumors suggest that Canon is going to attempt to position itself back atop the video podium, with powerful framerates planned for the Canon EOS R5 Mark II.

The Canon EOS R5 is an exceptionally powerful camera for stills but, when it came to video, what should have been a knockout was overshadowed by its poor handling of heat. You can't fault the video quality from the EOS R5, though, and it remains one of the best hybrid cameras out there – but if Canon hopes to make it the first choice of videographers again, it needs to put a lid on its overheating issues.
