Firstly, just to confirm what you have probably read - the r06 display is not an error code. It's just telling you how many shots the buffer has room for at your current settings. It always appears when you half-press the shutter release (whether the camera's button or a remote).

The reason you're noticing the code is that it appears for longer because the shutter won't release - but it's not the reason.

The most likely explanation is simply that the camera cannot achieve focus, which would not be surprising since your subject is difficult for it to lock on to. Try using manual focus and your problem might very well disappear
