Canon R5 and R6 - Blurry pictures
I'm interested in the Canon R5 or R6, however I recently read a review on the B and H site, where the reviewer indicated that images taken with the mechanical shutter at 35mm or less and a shutter speed of 1/200 sec. or less resulted in blurry images. I had a chance to visit B & H last week and the Cannon sales staff confirmed that all pictures taken on their demo cameras at those settings resulted in blurry images. Since I enjoy shooting water scenes, cascades and streams, this obviously gave me cause for concern. The only workaround they mentioned was to use the electronic shutter for those situations. The reviewer indicated that Canon was aware of the problem but there was no plans for a fix at this time. I did call Canon support, they were unaware of the problem.
I appreciate comments from folks who have shooting experience with either the Canon 5 or 6 regarding this issue.
More and more, I am having my doubts about Canon.. anyone know anything ??? Guess I will stick w/ Oly.
I own the R5 and have not and\or have not noticed this problem but I'd be happy to test it out for you and give you my opinion.
I did however just shoot some night home landscapes for a client using bracketed exposure and I was shooting more like 24mm and much slower and had no issues at all.
Thank you, that would be great, I appreciate your help.
Do you really believe that Canon would release two camera models with the problem you have described? I've personally not read or heard about such a problem with either camera, nor have my friends at the local camera store, and they specialize in Canon. Plus, if this problem really does exist and is pervasive, I believe Canon would be doing all they can to correct the issue.
Do Canon use a Copal shutter on these models? The same problem existed on Panasonic M4/3 cameras (and some Oly cameras) when using particular lenses at certain shutter speeds. It was down to the Copal shutters. Panasonic first of all introduced a firmware work-around, which, when selected on the menu, would automatically change to electronic shutter at certain speeds with particular lenses. On their latest cameras they have introduced an electro-magnetic shutter, which does not have that problem. In other words, they sacked Copal shutters.

The only problem that folks around here are experiencing is that both the R's eat batteries faster than a flee bits a junk yard dog.
My R6 did the same thing but at shutter speeds below 1/60 of a second. I tried using a tripod and the blurryness went away. Perhaps Canon sould supply a tripod with their cameras

Exactly. I read all the reviews and have never seen this. I shoot with an RP a lot with Canon 20/2.8 EF lens, so wider than 35 mm, and often at less than 200, and just get great pictures. I am planning on upgrading to the R6 or maybe the R5.
Thanks so much, especially for the reference article, I understand the issue much better after reading it.
So.... I saw this thread and thought that I would check it out.... It is a rainy day here, wet and low light so I did not go outside to take an image but rather just shot my back porch because after all it is just a sharpness test.
Canon R5 Sigma 14-24 f/2.8 Art ISO 640 17mm f/16 - 0.6 second exposure. To be fair because of the low light and shooting RAW where the camera does not adjust the image as it does when shooting Jpeg I did apply a highpass filter and reduced resolution for posting here.
I'm thinking that the blurriness problem is "fake news".
I agree. I have never seen this in all the reviews that I have read. I have the RP which I use with the new R lenses and with EF lenses with their adapter and all is good. I will be getting either the R5 or R6 later this year.
