Canon EOS R Firmware 1.6 Available For Download (RF 85mm DS support, minor fixes)

Canon Eos R Firmware

Canon released Canon EOS R firmware 1.6.

The firmware update can be downloaded from Canon Germany.

EOS R Firmware Version 1.6.0 incorporates the following enhancements and fixes:

  1. Support for the RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS lens has been added.
  2. Corrects a phenomenon in which the function or setting value assigned to the control ring may change when the control ring is operated in Eco mode.
  3. Corrects a phenomenon in which the camera may stop operating properly during “auto transfer” when using Camera Connect with a Wi-Fi connection.
  4. Corrects a phenomenon in which high-speed synchronization with use of an external flash may not operate properly depending on the camera’s setting for C.Fn2 “Set shutter speed range”.

This update for the Canon EOS R is for cameras equipped with firmware up to Version 1.4.0. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.6.0, this update is unnecessary.

This firmware will not deliver significant improvements as the previous one did.

Canon product advisory:

Thank you very much for using Canon products.

An international team of security researchers has drawn our attention to a vulnerability related to communications via the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP), which is used by Canon digital cameras, as well as a vulnerability related to firmware updates.
(CVE-ID:CVE-2019-5994, CVE-2019-5995, CVE-2019-5998, CVE-2019-5999, CVE-2019-6000, CVE-2019-6001)

Due to these vulnerabilities, the potential exists for third-party attack on the camera if the camera is connected to a PC or mobile device that has been hijacked through an unsecured network.

At this point, there have been no confirmed cases of these vulnerabilities being exploited to cause harm, but in order to ensure that our customers can use our products securely, we would like to inform you of the following workarounds for this issue.

* Ensure the suitability of security-related settings of the devices connected to the camera, such as the PC, mobile device, and router being used.

* Do not connect the camera to a PC or mobile device that is being used in an unsecure network, such as in a free Wi-Fi environment.

* Do not connect the camera to a PC or mobile device that is potentially exposed to virus infections.

* Disable the camera’s network functions when they are not being used.

* Download the official firmware from Canon’s website when performing a camera firmware update.

Models Affected

These vulnerabilities affect the EOS-series digital SLR and mirrorless cameras PowerShot SX740 HS, PowerShot SX70 HS, PowerShot G5X Mark II.

Firmware Update

There is an increased use of PCs and mobile devices in an unsecure (free Wi-Fi) network environment where customers are not aware of the network security. As it has become prevalent to transfer images from a camera to a mobile device via Wi-Fi connection, we will implement firmware updates for the following models that are equipped with the Wi-Fi function.

Canon Firmware Updates For EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III and EF 600mm f/4L IS III Lenses

Canon Firmware Update Canon EF 600mm F/4L IS III

Here are Canon firmware updates for two big white telephoto lenses.

Canon released firmware 1.1.2 for the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III lens (download) and firmware 1.1.2 for the Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III lens (download). Both Canon firmware updates deal with the following issues:

Firmware Version 1.1.2 incorporates the following enhancements:

  1. Increases the manual focus speed when the manual focus speed switch is set to 1 or 2.

*The speed when the switch is set to 3 (slowest speed) will be unchanged.

  1. Improves the image stabilization effect during handheld shooting with a slow shutter speed when used with EOS 5D Mark IV, EOS 6D, or EOS R.

*Enables a full-time manual focus function during Servo AF when used with the EOS-1D X Mark II. The lens must be sent to the Factory Service Center in order for this funcion to be enabled.

If the lens’ firmware is already Version 1.1.2, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

The lens’ firmware version can be checked from the camera’s menu.

These are big and heavy professional lenses with a equally big and heavy price:
