I use 5DIV and have a lot of L lenses.
its ok for photo. But for stock video it is really nice to have 4k 60fps or more. Slow motion give a nice look to footage.

so i thinking about to buy Blackmagic pocket 6k an use it for video, (keeping my 5dIV for photo).
or
to sell 5dIV, and invest in new R5.
it has 4k 120fps it can make possible a lot of interesting stock footage and its great for photography.
(i know problem with overheating, but for stock maybe its not that big problem - i make a short clips).

or what i think also is to sell all my canon gear and buy compact fuji XT4. its smaller, lens are smaller, have IBIS,  it can do 4k 60fps.

so what you suggest to me? its primary for stock footage and photo.

tnx

In our times I would think very carefully before investing a certain amount of money in equipment just for stock footage.
It could be very complicate to reach the breakeven.
I would rather think first to my needs for other assignments, then I would invest, eventually, my time which means money, to upload and tag stock footage.
You probably have red the situation of the market nowadays.

i'd buy a mirrorless for footage...i own a gh5 and it's great for footage...btw as the post above mention,i wouldn't invest on a new camera system for stock nowdays...if you already have the 5d iv it's quite good for footage apart from not having 4k 60p...

I use 5D MKIV for stills and BMPCC 4K and Gh5 for videos. Blackmagic is an amazing camera for the price. 60 fps BRAW or ProRes, beautiful color science and 12 reals stops in DR. Gh5 is nice specially because of IBIS. Photo quality ok but "only" 20mp but DR is quite poor.
But if I would buy now a new camera I would go for the R5 with and external Atomos and have everything in one package. Yes it overheats if you shoot internal but with the Atomos you can extend that with no more issues and having great still quality makes duplication no more necessary, so more portability which always is of great benefit for stock shooters.

yea more portability what i really want :D
and because od that i thinking about Fuji xt4.

video quality is good, 4k 60fps, ibis, af thats everything i need.

but what i affraid is photo quality on fuji in comparassion to canon 5dIV. when processing files from 5dIV i have a lot of room for back highlights, shadows, to punch white, contrast...fullframe give to photo better rendering, texture. I use full frame camera for more than 7 years. I am not sure how aps size senzor from fuji xt4 can handle it. ???

photo quality is only what stop me to make a change of system, to sell all my canon gear and bay compct fuji xt4 and tree lenses :)

My apologies. I know this is a bit of a stretch. But on the subject of "getting new equipment" is anyone selling HD anymore and how much longer do you think 4K will run before it joins the HD archives museum?

I am the proud owner of the R5 now (just 1 week) and I LOVE it, but I use it for photography only.  As for video, I'm sure it can produce mouthwatering quality, but have you read all the news about the overheating of the R5 while shooting video?  If you only shoot a few short video clips per day, by all means buy it, but if you want to shoot longer than 15 minutes, you really should read this :

With more than 50k clips in portpholio I'd suggest not to invest in ANY new stock shooting equipment especially worth more than $ several hundreds now.
