R6 Remote Not an Option on Canon

Hi! I’ve had my 6D Mark II for over 2 years. The 2 second/remote or 10 second/remote has always been an option for me on the menu screen up until recently. Now it’s gone. I can’t figure out how something like this disappears. Currently my only options are 10 second or 2 second with NO REMOTE option. I bought a new R6 thinking that was the issue. I’ve replaced the battery. Nothing. Suggestions??!

I assume you are referring to the Canon RC-6 remote which is an Infrared wireless remote. Infrared remote is disabled when Smart phone or Bluetooth remote is enabled. You probably inadvertently enabled it.

Check out the owner's manual on page 273 and 274 for more info.
