If filmmaking is your forte, then I'm sure you have considered or even bought the Canon EOS R5 C – the pure cinematic brother to the Canon EOS R5. The EOS R5 C gives outstanding performance with 8K 60fps or even 4K 120fps with audio, no limitations of record time (depending on your card capacity), as well as 45MP stills resolution. 

We'd hope to call it one of the best Canon cameras – except for (until the most recent firmware update) one pretty annoying issue. What if I said that for your well-earned $4,799 / £4,499, you press the record button and capture an amazing sunset, take it to your video editor of choice, hit playback and all you hear over your wonderful footage is wind noise from the built-in microphone.
