Come on Canon acted like the R5 was some type of videocentric camera but cant give us redundant recording before the R6..... This is one of the main reason I hate doing video videos with the camera. I had 2 Sony Tough CF express cards act goofy and corrupt on me. I have a wedding tomorrow SMGDFH

Who knows. The only issue is that one slot is different so maybe thats the hold up because all modes wont work probably. Canon told me the new firmware is August 18th hopefully it was delayed for this.
Dual recording in the 1DX Mark III only supports 4K or RAW in one and proxy in the other.
The R5 and R3 should be the same way.

Very nice to have CLOG 3 and dual card recording. Legit happy about that.

Now with that said (and I'm not trying to sound like a malcontent even though it will sound like that) but still waiting on ALL-I and the ability to decouple IBIS from lens stabilization at least in video.

I'd buy the R6 if they offered 10bit 4.2.2 in standard modes instead of only just c-log. Also, I don't like that there is no aperture priority mode for video. All need All-i 4k video. If they update the camera with those upgrades, then I'll sell my Sony in a heartbeat. The redudant video recording is a great addition.

Aperture priority mode for video? How would that work? You typically need to set your shutter speed according to your framerate. Manual mode lets you change everything you need already anyway, including Auto ISO. Is there some special needs purpose here you're doing? My shutter speed is locked in at 1/50 for 24fps. I set my aperture to get the look I want. Try to use ISO 400 for max DR but I'll dial it around as needed to get proper exposure for a shot. If the lighting is gonna change (like indoor to outdoor run and gun shooting) then I'd use Auto ISO.

The EOS R has Aperture priority mode for video, as well as a few others that the R6 lacks. Since replacing it with the R6, I use manual mode with the aperture set where I want it and Auto ISO. Most of my video work is done under stable lighting conditions, so it works well enough for my current needs, but I do find that the R6 is a bit less stable than the R was when using EOS Webcam to stream video to my Windows 10 laptop using Microsoft Teams. Of course, that could very easily be due to the ever-changing spec of Teams...

At minimum, give R5 users 4K60 and below for dual recording.

Not sure if 4K120 would be an issue for an SD card or not? Using Sony Tough V90 SD card.
They will obviously only enable it with modes that do record to an SD card. So no RAW and no 4k120p.

Everyone asking for All-I on the R6. Don’t you understand the SD Card slot doesn’t support the write speeds it would need to for the much bigger video files? The R5 does it because it has CFast cards.
