I'm glad that they fixed the bug that make rotate the ibis on the frst pictures! also, even if i'm not a videographer, redundant video with new cLog is a good add!

I can understand the desire for proxies to different cards, I can’t understand the desire for ‘backup’ simultaneous card writing. Surely anybody shooting anything that demands immediate backup either isn’t using an R6 as a primary or at least has it attached to an Atomos or other external recorder.

To me it sounds like a case of made up demand by influencers doing their thing to users who won’t end up using the feature anyway. But maybe I became cynical

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 very much hope Canon lets us decouple IBIS and lens stabilization.
We need to keep the heat on Canon.
As for ALL-I, if it does come then it will make file sizes bigger and the overheating worse.
I am not saying that you should not ask for it but just understand what comes with it.

Well now you have 2 backups and not everyone always uses an external recorder

I understand that, my point was if somebody is shooting something important enough to require on site backup surely they aren’t relying on a single R6 with no external recorder?

I want ALL-I in 1080p. This camera is significantly sharper in 1080p than pervious versions (EOS R). If I would be able to shoot 1080p C-Log in ALL-I, I would be a happy camper. Robust video to push and pull without crazy file sizes, that upscales 4K perfectly for YT delivery (not to mention other projects where YT doesn't get involved and ruin the footage), and no overheating concerns ever again. Oh man, that would be sweet!!

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.
Canon said they would add it, so I'm holding them to their word. Besides I don't want ALL-I 4K, I want ALL-I 1080p. Lots of good can be done with ALL-I 1080p CLog. Just saying.

I am an R5 shooter, but I am happy for all the R6 shooters that can benefit from these new updates. If they introduce ALL-I 4K to this camera as well, I'm definitely buying it as a second body for video.

Has animal eye-recognition been added to the 1Dx3 in live-view mode, here in this firmware, or at some earlier point....?

Ability to record to both cards is a pleasant surprice. I wasn't expecting Canon to provide that capability. While I do not use CLog, I am sure this will make a lot of people happy especially youtubers. Hope Canon will also remove the recording limits at least for the modes the R6 camera does not overheat.

Wait what? Redundant video recording? Does that mean this will come to the R5, too?

With two different media types I would bet Canon will not offer this in the R5 but let's wait and see. I wasn't expecting Canon to provide dual card video recording in R6 as well.

When did they say that?
Canon is usually pretty open-ended about promises unless they say X is coming at a later date.
Sorry. Got slammed at work.

I guess I'm living in a dream world. I can't help but think I've heard it referenced that Canon was going to add CLog 3 and ALL-I but of course now all I find is "its rumored" stuff. Nothing better than getting old and going senile.

:whistle:

Would new camera R6 if I one in the upcoming months would the camera already have this firmware or would I have do it myself?
