If I am not mistaken the R video is 8-bit.I really don’t get the discussion about the R6 not being able to handle All-I. My Canon R has All-I in all modes with higher bitrates. I have both cameras and the R6 is quicker in everything when compared to the R so I don’t understand why people would think it couldn’t handle All-i if even the R can do it. What am I missing here?
That seems like a reasonable request.I also wanted to clarify that I dont care about ALL-I in 4K, I want ALL-I in 1080p (w/CLOG 3). The added sharpness from the R6 will allow upscaleing to 4K for YT delivery with a great looking crisp video. That also means manageable file sizes, with no overheating. AND those projects that require a 1080p non YT deliverable will look spectacular.
After 37 years in the software industry, I now teach software engineering and other computer science classes at a university. In the past, Canon seldom exhibited the ability to add major new features after the release of a camera. The hardware and software was fixed at release and you usually had to wait until the next camera body to get new features. You were fortunate to receive a few bug fixes.Or it just took that extra engineering time to implement them.
Just rec'd my new R6 body two days ago, from B&H.....it came with firmware version 1.2.0, so the answer is probably not. Very easy to update from Canon's site, however.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?
Canon usually takes two separate tracks.Canon seldom exhibited the ability to add major new features after the release of a camera.
No, it's not write speed. It was intentionally removed. There's absolutely no technical reason why the R6 can't have ALL-I at least in 1080p when the older 6D had it. As a matter of fact, Canon removed ALL-I from the 6D Mark II, so it wasn't the first time Canon removed ALL-IGreat. But thats the R5. The R5 is a more expensive camera and has faster write speeds then the R6. Whether it’s a bandwidth limitation in the type of SD card slot used on the R6 (not the spec, the real world write speed) or even internally in the software or speed of memory. The R6 just can’t handle data rates that high. It’s not like they’re made up of the same components and they slapped a higher price tag on the R5. It’s a very different camera with different tech inside.
Sony fanbois get down click happy.why should it get more? For what they do, they might not need sony. The biggest benefits is long recording and less overheating for the average person.
That's odd. It works for me. I turn the camera on and rotate the "mode dial", as you describe. It happily goes from Auto to L, to 100 and back from there down to L and Auto. Just as you wish for.1) When dialling through ISO using the top back wheel (the one with the MODE button in the centre), whilst looking through the viewfinder I cannot dial in AUTO ISO. It's just missing. Prev models (eg 5d, 1d etc) you would reach AUTO ISO by dialling it in below 50. But it isn't there on the r5. Instead I have to stop my workflow, take my eye from the viewfinder, hit ISO on the touch screen and then find and select AUTO ISO, just below ISO50.
