Canon 1DX Mark III and EOS R6 Now Offer C-Log 3 and Video Recording to Two Cards

Canon continues to improve its existing camera models by adding new functionalities and fixing existing bugs. The company has recently released two new firmware updates regarding the Canon 1DX Mark III and EOS R6. Both models get C-Log 3 picture profile as well as the ability to record video to two cards simultaneously.

It’s also worth mentioning that the flagship 1DX III will get support for RAW movies shot with Canon Log 3 and RAW (Light) in a future version of Cinema RAW Development and in Digital Photo Professional software. Unfortunately, the camera won’t be able to record RAW and RAW(Light) movies simultaneously on both cards.
