Do CFexpress Cards Cause Canon EOS R5 Overheating?

John Gress has completed an excellent test: Do CFexpress cards cause Canon EOS R5 overheating? Tested with atomos shogun + BG-R10 battery grip and batteries. Check out!

In conclusion, having the screen on does seem to be a contributing factor to overheating, but it doesn’t appear having the CFexpress in the camera causes the over heating, even though I got about 90 seconds more internal recording time with the SD card. So I think the moral of the story is keep the screen off as much as you can and the cards out of the camera.
