Why has Canon deliberately put these software limitations on the R6?
The only reason I can think of is to differentiate their line-up
These features are available both on the R and the R5
R and R5 both have M, Av, Tv,... C1, C2, C3 modes IN THE video mode itself
Whereas the R6 only has Auto Expo and M modes for video
So it's definitely not a hardware limitation
There's a lot of headroom for making improvements on the R6
Like adding ALL-I Codec instead of IPB Codec which is a nightmare to edit even with all the i9s and RTXs of the world
Someone might say ALL-I can be only done on CF-Express Cards and to them I say the EOS R doesn't use one
And also adding this very basic necessity of having Custom Video Shooting Profiles (C1, C2, C3) IN THE video mode itself like it is in the R5 and R
