Canon issues new firmware for EOS R5, R6, R, RP, 1D X Mark III

News

Canon has released new firmware for five cameras, including the EOS R5, R6, EOS R, EOS RP and EOS-1D X Mark III, as well as the RF 50mm F1.2L USM.

Most of the new Canon firmware updates are fairly minor, introducing new performance enhancements and bug fixes.

New updates to the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 in firmware version 1.2.0 include:

  • When using high-speed or low-speed continuous shooting modes, in Drive Mode with [High Speed Display: OFF], the visibility of the subject within the frame has been improved when shooting moving objects.*
  • *During continuous shooting black frames will be inserted between frames in the viewfinder and live view. This will improve the visibility of moving subjects in live view and in the viewfinder.
  • Adds the [Auto] setting to the [Viewfinder brightness] menu that will brighten and dim based on ambient light conditions.
  • Enables 2nd curtain shooting sync during radio transmission wireless flash shooting when the Speedlite EL-1 flash is attached to the camera.
  • Enables manual flash output (excluding high-speed sync and optical transmission wireless flash shooting) to be selected and set up to 1/8192 from the camera menu screen when the Speedlite EL-1 flash is attached to the camera.
  • Improves compatibility of HEIF images recorded in the camera with MIAF (Multi-Image Application Format) standards.
  • Adds support for AF and release during zoom operations for some RF and EF lenses.

Meanwhile, the EOS R and EOS RP have been updated to support Canon’s new RF 70–200mm F2.8 L IS USM and RF 100–500mm F4.5–7.1 L IS USM lenses, and to improve colour balance with the RF 50mm F1.8 STM.

Updates to Canon’s flagship DSLR, the EOS-1D X Mark III, include:

  • Enables 2nd curtain shooting sync during radio transmission wireless flash shooting when the Speedlite EL-1 flash is attached to the camera.
  • Enables manual flash output (excluding high-speed sync and optical transmission wireless flash shooting) to be selected and set up to 1/8192 from the camera menu screen when the Speedlite EL-1 flash is attached to the camera.
  • Improves compatibility of HEIF images recorded in the camera with MIAF (Multi-Image Application Format) standards.
  • Fixes the phenomenon that may result in the occurrence of time-out under certain conditions during FTP transfer.

Canon has also updated the RF 50mm F1.2L USM to reduce noise at higher sensitivities.
