Behiri begins the video by saying that he had hoped to report again on the in-body picture stabilization (IBIS) and autofocus capabilities of the EOS R6, however that these options ended up taking a backseat to the constraints created by overheating whereas taking pictures.

‘If you see [the time limitations] on paper and expertise it within the discipline, it’s fully completely different,’ says Behiri.
