Someone mentioned something about the SD card and that made me rewatch the vid I posted and check comments.
A while back I had placed this card from the camera into a PC running Linux (to just copy the files) and tried to eject the card and for some reason after the copy, the system wouldn't eject the card. It was really odd. I finally just yanked the card from the system.
Maybe the Linux box (was using Manjaro at the time) was doing something? Maybe the card is kinda borked? Maybe I borked the card by pulling it? I was doing a read only function from Linux with the SD card.
Windows didn't have any issues reading it afterwards, not have I seen corrupt files in camera or after copying to a win 10 box.
I think I have another SD card new that I got with my 80d, I can give it a whirl if I keep having problems.
I wonder if checkdisk would work to check for card errors on Windows.
Probably fair to call my experience a 'lockup':

I experienced an "Error 2" a few days ago. "Can't access card. Re insert or format"
However the R contradicted itself as when I switched the camera off, I got a window with a rotating progress Icon stating "2 images remaining" which changed to "1 image remaining" and then the camera switched off. (It took about 30 seconds to do this)
It's a Sandisk 128GB / 95MB/S Extreme Pro bought new with the Camera, 5 weeks old.
I did reinsert after the power down and have had no further problems. There were no corrupted or missing images when I got home and checked.
I have had 3 or 4 issues where the R stopped behaving and needed a restart in about 12 months. Symptons varied, I have not bothered trying to isolate the cause.
I have owned 11 Canon DSLRs and the R.
My (bought used) 1DS2 had a problem when it was about 10 years old, was still taking photos but I could not adjust any shooting parameter (eg ISO, shutter speed, aperture). Battery and clock battery removal sorted that. So that was the only issue ever experienced with the 11 DSLRs. The R has had a few, but on average 1 every 3 months and only required removing the battery once.
