Firmware update for three Canon cameras

Upgrading based on user feedback, Canon’s firmware unleashes new photo and video capabilities on the EOS R5, EOS R6 and EOS-1D X Mark III

Canon Europe announces a firmware update for three cameras from the group of mirrorless models and professional DSLR cameras from the EOS R system, in response to user feedback. Appliance users EOS-R5 (FIRMVS v1.3), EOS-R6 (FIRMVS v1.3.1) I EOS-1D Mark 3 10 (FIRMVS v1.4) they have at their disposal numerous upgrades that help them optimize work processes and achieve even greater creative freedom.

Increased image quality and usability

The EOS R5 will benefit from a number of upgrades, including Full HD 120p and support for greater customization of the camera. Users will now be able to save personalized and favorite camera settings to a memory card, which can then be copied to another camera or used when adjusting settings. There is also the option to turn off the LCD monitor during recording and use it for playback only, which provides the familiar DSLR-style operation. For both the EOS R5 and the EOS R6, the firmware achieves constant manual support for RF lenses, allowing photographers to manually bypass the focus of RF lenses when in Servo AF mode.

Optimized professional work processes

With the EOS R5, professional photographers can protect and quickly share photos with the new Protect Image Transfer feature, which allows protected images to be locked – preventing them from being accidentally deleted – and transferred via FTP. On the EOS-1D X Mark III and EOS R5, professionals can now see the FTP transfer status on the screen, which clearly shows how long it will take to transfer images.

Enhanced video functionality

This firmware enables low-throughput RAW movies by reducing the size of RAW video files, making data transfer faster on the EOS R5 and EOS-1D X Mark III models. This upgrade also provides enhanced video capabilities for the EOS R5 by adding the Canon Log 3 – log gamma curve used by all Canon Cinema EOS cameras, allowing for greater dynamic range, superior color editing capabilities and easier file management. For even more flexibility in the video recording format on all cameras, this firmware unlocks a lower-stream IPB film option that makes small video files that can be easily shared.

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

Canon will continue its commitment to photographers and videographers through further plans to bring new functionality to these three models based on customer feedback, including the introduction of the Canon Log 3 on the EOS R6 and the EOS-1D X Mark III in a future upgrade.
