Canon Releases Firmware Updates for EOS R5, EOS R6, EOS-1D X Mark III, RF 70-200mm F2.8 L IS, and RF 100-500mm L IS

From Canon USA:

Building on user feedback, Canon’s firmware unleashes new photographic and video possibilities for the EOS R5, EOS R6, and EOS-1D X Mark III cameras

Canon is introducing a firmware update for three of its EOS cameras in response to customer feedback. Users of the EOS R5 (firmware v1.3), EOS R6 (firmware v1.3), and EOS-1D X Mark III (firmware v1.4) cameras have access to several feature updates helping to streamline workflows and provide users with greater creative freedom.

Increased Image Quality and Usability

The EOS R5 camera will benefit from several upgrades offered with the firmware update, including Full HD 120p and support for greater customization of the camera. Users will now be able to save personalized and preferred camera settings to a memory card, which can be copied to a different camera or used when the settings are adjusted. There is also the option to turn the LCD monitor off during shooting and use it for playback only, providing a familiar DSLR-style operation. For both the EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras, the firmware achieves full-time manual support update for select* RF lenses, allowing photographers to override the focus of RF lenses manually when in One Shot and Servo AF mode.

Streamlined Professional Workflows

For the EOS R5 camera, professional photographers can safeguard and quickly share photos with the new Protect Image Transfer function allowing protected images to be locked - preventing them from accidentally being deleted - and transferred via FTP. Users of the EOS-1D X Mark III and EOS R5 cameras can now see FTP Transfer status on the LCD screen, clearly displaying how long it will take to transfer pictures.

Enhanced Video Functionality

The firmware enables low-bit rate RAW movies, which reduces the size of RAW video files allowing for faster file transfer rates for users of the EOS R5 and EOS-1D X Mark III cameras. The update also provides enhanced video capabilities for the EOS R5 camera with the addition of Canon Log 3 – a log gamma curve enabling greater dynamic range, superb color editing capabilities, and easier file management. For even greater flexibility of video formats across all cameras, the firmware unlocks a lower bit rate IPB movie option creating small, easily shareable video files.

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

Canon’s commitment to photographers and videographers will continue through further plans to bring new functionality to these three models based on user feedback, including bringing Canon Log 3 to the EOS-1D X Mark III camera in a future update.

The firmware and software updates are now available to download on each product page:
