Does the 6k raw still have noise issues in image?

Does the 6k raw still have noise issues in image?
Asked by: Adrian
The Canon EOS C500 Mark II 5.9K Full-Frame Camera Body (EF Mount, No CFexpress Card) (B&H# CAC500IIQ), when shooting in raw, will not add the same noise reduction to the image that you will find in other recording formats. As such, there will always be more noise in raw video footage than you will find in noise-reduced or compressed CODECs. It has not changed but is not typically considered to represent a problem because when shooting in raw it is with the assumption that one will be grading, denoising, and otherwise adjusting the footage in post production.
