Canon updates EOS R5, R6, EOS-1D X Mark III firmware with new video features, customisation

News

Canon has released new firmware for the EOS R5, EOS R6 and EOS-1D X Mark III which adds new video functionality, customisation options and other performance enhancements.

Among the updates to the Canon EOS R5 are support for Full HD at 120p and the option to save personalised camera settings to your memory card, which can be copied across to a different camera.

Users will also now have the option to turn off the LCD while shooting and use it solely for playback. The LCD will also now display FTP Transfer status on both the EOS R5 and EOS-1D X Mark III.

The R5 will also add Canon’s new Protect Image Transfer functionality, which allows users to lock protected images and prevent them from being accidentally deleted. It also lets these images be transferred via FTP.

For both the EOS R5 and EOS R6, the firmware updates provide full time manual support for RF lenses, allowing photographers to override the focus of RF lenses manually when in Servo AF mode.

For both the EOS R5 and EOS-1D X Mark III the firmware update enables low bit rate Raw movies, reducing the size of the cameras’ Raw video files for faster transfer speeds.

The EOS R5 also adds Canon Log 3, which is the same log gamma curve used in all Canon Cinema EOS cameras.

Canon has also released several software updates today to complement the above firmware upgrades and bring support for Apple M1 processors via Rosetta for Digital Photo Professional (DPP) with v4.14 and EOS Utility with v3.13.1.

Canon EOS R5 firmware version 1.3, EOS R6 firmware version 1.3 and EOS-1D X Mark III firmware version 1.4 are available to download from the Canon website. What’s more, the firmware unlocks a lower bit rate IPB movie option for creating smaller, easily shareable video files.
