Canon Released Another Firmware Update For EOS R5 and EOS R6

Canon EOS R5 Firmware Update Sony A7s Iii

A few weeks after the firmware update for the EOS R5, Canon released new firmware updates for the EOS R5 and EOS R6.

This time the firmware update appears to be more for the Canon EOS R6 than for the EOS R5, since it tackles with heat production on the R6. The R5 already had a firmware update coping with this.

Canon EOS R6 firmware 1.1.1 (download) incorporates the following fixes and enhancements:

  1. A messaging is displayed when [HDMI display: Camera+External monitor] and [Overheat control: on] settings are both enabled.
  2. When the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM is attached, an image stabilization effect of approximately six stops* is achieved through collaborative control with the in-lens image stabilization.
    *Focal length 500mm, Based on CIPA(Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards.
  3. Fixes a phenomenon in which the IS capabilities may be degraded when performing continuous shooting in cases where the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is attached to the EOS R6 running firmware version 1.1.0.
  4. When using certain RF lenses for movie shooting, the in-lens image stabilization mechanism has been improved.
  5. Fixes a phenomenon in which the “Slow Synchro” setting screen is not accurately displayed, when the language is set to English.
  6. Fixes a typo displayed on the communication setting screen, when the language is set to Korean.
  7. Connectivity during FTP transmission has been improved.
  8. 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.
  9. The phenomenon in which the movie recording time available is not correctly displayed when the Date/Time/Zone is not set has been corrected.

Canon EOS R5 firmware 1.1.1 (download) incorporates the following fix and enhancement:

  1. When the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is attached, an image stabilization effect of approximately six stops* is achieved through collaborative control with the in-lens image stabilization.
    *Focal length 500mm, Based on CIPA(Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards.
  2. Fixes a phenomenon in which the IS capabilities may be degraded when performing continuous shooting in cases where the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is attached to the EOS R5 running firmware version 1.1.0.

Is The Canon EOS R5 Firmware Update A Game Changer?

Canon Eos R5 Firmware

Canon released a Canon EOS R5 firmware update. While it will likely not calm down the most exalted anti Canonites, it seems to excite others.

No Life makes the bold claim that the Canon EOS R5 firmware update is a game changer. While we do not think it is a game changer (the R5 is), it’s true that it enhances video recording times. See for yourself in the video below.

Want to learn the latest about the Canon EOS R5 overheating soap opera? Have a look here. Strangely enough, the almost exploding and finger-burning EOS R5 is the best selling camera in Japan. It’s hot! Yeah.

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. More Canon EOS R5 review stuff is listed here, for the EOS R6 see here. User manual are available for download for the EOS R5 and the EOS R6. My opinion about the EOS R5 overheating hysteria is listed here.
