After using the R5 for a full month as a professional commercial studio and portrait photographer, who shoots some video, I have decided to fully switch from the 5D Mark IV. It took me a while to test everything from auto focus, to tethering to video (including overheating) and how to get the best color out of the new RAW files. This video also covers post production in DPP (Digital Photo Professional), Lightroom and Capture One 20. Please see a full summary of the time line below.

I wanted to share with you how I setup my Canon EOS R5 for videography. This video will take a deep-dive into the settings and features of the first Canon professional mirrorless camera and include detailed info for people who are new to video.
Thanks to your amazing support, the video “I will” by Marshall Titus, has reached over 10,000 views on Youtube. This is a rather exciting milestone for the filming/video endeavors of John Gress and hopefully there will be many more to come…
The video I directed for Marshall Titus’ “I will” is continuing to gain traction and its continuing to move people. This week it was featured on Black Gay Men’s Blog. I was reminded why I made this video: to make the world a more tolerant and accepting place for everyone.
