With Canon r5 and profoto b10 with the profoto ttl-c air controller the only limitation I have come across is that the TTL does not really work when the camera is focused on a subject within 1 meter of the camera. This might account for the wildly different exposures you are getting.

This is mentioned as a known issue on the profoto website on the tech specs page of the air TTL controller https://profoto.com/int/products/air-remotes/remotes/air-remote-ttl-c/techspecs. Other than that it works great.

There is a new firmware that might correct this. I haven’t updated yet though to test. **

** New firmware updates that improve Canon camera compatibility are now available.

We have
- Released an update for A1, A1X, A10, Connect, and Air Remote TTL-C, that is fixing flash auto exposure function (TTL) at short focus distances (<1 meter) for all supported mirrorless Canon.
EOS cameras (EOS R, R5, R6, and 1DX Mk III (in mirrorless mode),
- Added Canon EOS R6 to the list of supported Canon camera models.
