We know Canon will soon release a new firmware update for the Canon EOS R5…
Canon EOS R5 firmware update 1.1.0 has been released. Will it stop the overheating soap opera? Likely not.
Canon EOS R5 firmware 1.1.0 (download) delivers the following improvements and fixes (emphasis added):
- Useful messaging is now displayed when [HDMI display: Camera+External monitor] and [Overheat control: on] settings are enabled.
- When using certain RF lenses for movie shooting, the in-lens image stabilization mechanism has been improved.
- Fixes a phenomenon in which the “Slow Synchro” setting screen is not accurately displayed, when the language is set to English.
- Fixes a typo displayed on the communication setting screen, when the language is set to Korean.
- Connectivity during FTP transmission has been improved.
- Fixes a phenomenon, in which the card access time may take longer, when using certain CFexpress cards.
- Temperature detection and shooting time control in video shooting have been improved. In addition, the total shooting time when the short-time recording and power-on/off are performed repeatedly at room temperature is improved.
- The phenomenon in which the movie recording time available is not correctly displayed when the Date/Time/Zone is not set has been corrected.
At the beginning of September Canon will also release a firmware update for the R F100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS:
The firmware scheduled for release in early September will incorporate the following improvements for the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM.
- Supports 6-stop image stabilization. (CIPA-compliant)

Without any doubt the change in temperatire detection and management is the biggest change with this firmware. The video below, by Gordon Laing, explains very well what comes with Canon EOS R5 firmware 1.1.0.
Whatever, the EOS R5 seems to be highly regarded as a stills camera. In particular, the EOS R5 autofocus system seems to be huge leap forwards.
