Gerald Undone completes his R5 and R6 overheating test results
GeraldUndone has completed his overheating test results of the R5 and also the R6 cameras, and summarizes on a nice chart. The tests were taken indoors at room temperature (22-23C).
Two things to note from this table is that it seems USB-C powering the cameras made no difference to the times, however, I'm not sure if that was USB-C powering with or without the battery in place.
Testing was done with and without an external recorder - as it shows in the table, that made a considerable difference - but not a complete difference. I think this is important to note, there's a finite amount of heat generated from the sensor since it's performing quite a bit of analog to digital conversions and that over time, this heat will build up inside of the camera case.
The takeaway? Until Canon resolves some of the issues, to get the higher quality video options from the R5 (and R6) you may want to invest in an external recorder.
