From Canon USA:

Supercharge Your Stop Motion Animation

Whether pre-installed on a new EOS R or manually installed on an existing EOS R the new Stop Motion Animation upgrade for EOS R cameras increases your Live View resolution to 1920x1280 from Canon's normal of 960x640 when connected to Dragonframe stop motion animation software. This makes it easier for animators to confirm focus and movement within every frame.

Larger Live View

Live view is critical to animators creating stop motion animation films. Animators use the remote live view of the camera to review critical details and make decisions within the Dragonframe software. Canon's Stop Motion Animation firmware increases the Live View to 1920x1280 - helping animators see subtle movement for refined animation.

Canon EOS R Firmware Update for Pro Stop Motion Animation - Resolution

This is a comparison of the new Live View resolution of 1920x1280 (full screen) versus the original size of 960x640 (small inset). The large preview image makes it easier for the animators to have confidence in the shot and can improve the overall quality of the scene.

USB Manual Focus Peaking

Canon has added Manual Focus Peaking over USB to interface with Dragonframe software.

Canon EOS R Firmware Update for Pro Stop Motion Animation - USB Manual Focus Peaking

Seeing Focus Peaking on the full screen allows the animator to precisely capture fine detail and adjust for desired depth of field.

Canon EOS R Firmware Update for Pro Stop Motion Animation - Critical Focus

Critical focus on a subject's eyes (red edge) gives the animator the confidence that the scene flows as directed.

Standard Firmware vs Stop Motion Animation Firmware Comparison Chart

Canon EOS R Firmware Update for Pro Stop Motion Animation - Comparison Chart

Important information about EOS R Stop Motion Animation Firmware

  • HDMI output is not available on the EOS R with this firmware installed
  • [Disp. performance] cannot be set
  • MF peaking will not show up even if [MF peaking settings] is set to [On] under the following conditions:
    • When an EF-S lens is used
    • When [Multiple exposure] is set
    • When [Cropping/aspect ratio] is set to an option other than [FULL]
    • When the shooting screen is magnified
    • When you keep holding down the shutter button after shooting

How to obtain the Stop Motion Animation Firmware

Anyone interested in utilizing these features with the Canon EOS R can do so in one of the following ways:

A new version of the EOS R camera with the Stop Motion Animation Firmware already installed is now available for purchase. Purchase EOS R with Firmware at the Canon USA Store.

Current EOS R camera owners can receive the Stop Motion Animation Firmware upgrade for a fee by sending the camera to a Canon Factory Service Center.†

Not responsible for typographical errors. Certain images and effects are simulated. Products not shown to scale.

† Canon U.S.A. will perform the feature upgrade for a $100 fee and will require the camera to be sent to a Canon Factory Service Center. Shipping and handling charges may also apply. Specifications and availability subject to change without notice.

Other updates include pull-down 60p signal to 24p/30p recording, browser remote use for both Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections, and HDR high-frame shooting support.
  • The EOS C300 Mark III Digital Cinema Camera update will now show the chosen resolution and color sampling settings on the onscreen display by default.
  • The EOS C500 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera update will allow for support of XF-AVC Long GOP and XF-AVC Proxy format, 3 or 5 seconds pre-recording ability, pull-down 60p signal to 24p/30p recording, “magnify” assignable button change, and user ability to give two files an identical name when recording from both card slots.
  • The EOS C700, C700 FF, and C700 GS Digital Cinema Cameras will update the Slow & Fast Motion display, including changing “REC” and “STBY” notification colors from white to red and green respectively.
  • The EOS C200 and C200B update will allow for support of pull-down 60p signal to 24p/30p recording and the simultaneous use of both HDMI and SDI ports.

Other updated support includes HDR monitoring assist functions such as the ability to check XY chromaticity value of pixels, area markers will be simultaneously displayed in two locations, expansion of the safety zone/grid markers, and the ability to highlight the areas above the desired luminance range. Also, the update will support enhanced ease-of-use and workflow with third party cameras.
  • The DP-V2411, DP-V1711 and DPV-1710 4K Reference Displays update will improve full-screen black level all the way down to .001 nits. This is a major upgrade over the previous specification of .005 nits.
Paid Firmware Updates Details Are as Follows:
 
  • The DP-V1711 and DP-V1710 4K Reference Displays paid firmware updates will offer an upgrade license and will raise full-screen peak luminance from 600 to 1000 nits. Also, full-screen peak luminance is now supported by a local dimming algorithm from 300 to 600 nits. The combined updates/upgrades listed here (both paid and free) for these reference displays would completely overhaul the image quality, which would be an impressive 1,000,000:1 full-screen contrast ratio.

Did you notice the Canon EOS R and Canon EOS RP firmware announcement at the bottom of the Canon RF 15-35mm and 24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM Lens lens announcement press release?
 
Free Firmware Update

In addition, a new, free downloadable firmware update will be released in late September for the EOS R system. Those interested can download the update for their respective system via the EOS R and EOS RP support pages. The update will improve three main functions:

  • Eye detection AF
  • AF frame display delay
  • Subject identification

The firmware update aims to add detection of the subject’s eye when the subject is at a distance, improve overall AF frame tracking for moving subjects, as well as improve initial subject recognition and start tracking when subjects are at a distance.
 
While I already find the R and RP's AF systems to be high performing, this update will take them to an even higher level of performance.

  • Firmware version 1.1.2.1.00 is for updating Cinema EOS C300 Mark II cameras running firmware version 1.0.0.1.00 - 1.1.1.1.00. If your camera's firmware is already version 1.1.2.1.00, it is not necessary to update the firmware. Once the camera is updated to the latest version, it cannot be restored to a previous version.
  • Please note that after updating the camera to Firmware Version 1.0.6.1.00 or later, if you wish to continue using CFast (VPG130) cards that were used before the firmware update, you will need to format the CFast cards with the camera. After the firmware update, and before formatting the CFast cards with the camera, make sure to back up the clips saved to the CFast cards.
Preparations for a firmware update:
 
  • You cannot perform the firmware update using CFast 2.0 cards. Please use a commercially available SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card that is 64MB or more for the firmware update.
  • After the firmware update has been performed, the camera's menu and custom picture settings will be reset. It is recommended that users save their menu and custom picture settings as settings data to an SD card, separate from the one that will be used to carry out the update, before starting update operations. This saved data can be loaded into the camera and the settings can be changed after the update has been completed. For further information on this, please refer to the section in the unit's Instruction Manual titled "Saving and Loading Camera Settings".
  • The downloaded folder contains the firmware (file name: VLB3.FIM / file size: 43,843,616bytes), and instructions on the firmware update procedures (a PDF file in five languages: Japanese, English, French, Spanish and Simplified Chinese). Before starting the firmware update operations, please be sure to carefully confirm your understanding of these instructions.
The following items are required to perform this firmware update:
 
  1. An EOS C300 Mark II or EOS C300 Mark II PL Digital Cinema Camera
  2. A computer (OS requirements: Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7 SP1, Mac OS X 10.7 - 10.14)
  3. SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card with a capacity of 64 MB or more (commercially available)
  4. An SD card reader/writer (commercially available) or an SD card slot built into the computer
  5. A fully charged battery pack for the camera
  6. Compact power adapter bundled with the camera
  7. The firmware (the downloaded file)
