Canon EOS R To Get New Functionality Trough Firmware Update a Few Months After Release?

Canon EOS R To Get New Functionality Trough Firmware Update A Few Months After Release?
The Canon EOS R. High resolution model coming in 2020?

We are not sure what to think about this rumor. A massive firmware update that brings new functionality a few months after the Canon EOS R has been releases isn’t very much Canon like. It’s something we are used to see from Fuji.

Canon Rumors suggests that a Canon EOS R firmware update might bring the following functionality:

  • Eye detect AF in continuous shooting. The EOS R launches with the ability to do this in one shot.
  • Additional touch bar functionality added.
  • Continuous shooting in silent shutter mode. The EOS R only allows this feature in single shot at launch.
  • A “few tweaks” to video functionality. The 4K crop will not be changed, nor will the maximum frame rate in 4K.

Some bug fixes will also be addressed.

More Canon EOS R information, hands-on reviews, first impressions, videos etc we collected so far are listed here.

Pre-orders for the Canon EOS R will start September 12, 2018, you can get notified by B&H Photo or Adorama when they are available. For pre-order notification at B&H for all new Canon gear announced today see here.

If you’re based in UK you can already pre-order the EOS R:
