Loving the supply of firmware updates. They could always have something more, and hey, having bought an R6 for what it is and understanding the limited supply of firmware on previous cameras leaves me feeling an uneasy FOMO feeling like never before - very clever Canon marketing!

This is amazing, I can now set the shutter burst rate between not quite fast enough to way too fast.

Hang on, no I can't.
Canon doesn't want you to do fast burst too often, that's why they give you no other choice. You'll have to buy the R3 for choices.

Atomos also released their update for external 5k raw (Ninja V) and 8k raw (Ninja V+).

Did anyone got that to work allready? I cant get a signal on my Ninja V...

Although I am rather happy with my R5 I can think of some issues regarding stills photography:

They have to fix the loss of manual focus setting when shooting timelapses. (there has been an issue reported by a member doing astrophotography). That's a bug!

They could give us the setting where we chose between release and focus priority in servo mode. R5 is maybe the only camera that does not have it!!!
