I have a R6 and want to power it over the usbc port. can it be powered by 12V? If yes, i could use the birddog ndi converter to power it over PoE while use.

I  would think NOT.  There is a protocol between the Camera and the power unit.  My R6 can be very fussy about it,  some of my USB C power bricks will not work with the R6.

I would NEVER connect a 12volt source to my R6 without knowing for absolute certain that it will work and after testing on some of my old USB C devices first.
