Canon Firmware Updates for Cinema EOS Cameras and Pro Camcorders Now Available

On June 5th, Canon promised firmware updates delivering enhanced features for Cinema EOS cameras and pro camcorders. Those updates are now available.

EOS C500 Mark II/ EOS C300 Mark III Cameras

  • “Sensor Mode” will be saved to an assignable button on the camera body to quickly change between Full-frame, Super 35mm and Super 16mm crop modes.
  • The Focus Guide box will have two size options: Standard and Large (approximately two times larger than standard).
  • Camera LCD screen will display a playback marker in Media Mode.
  • For the EOS C300 Mark III camera:
    • Cinema RAW Light HQ/ST/LT recording modes will be added.
    • Auto ISO/Gain functions that can be operated from the camera menu, an assignable button, or with a compatible remote-control unit will be added.

EOS C70/EOS R5 C Cameras

  • Same Focus Guide and playback marker enhancements as the C500 Mark II and C300 Mark III cameras will be added.
  • Option of assigning functions to the select dial on the back of the camera, including AF subject selection, shutter, iris, ISO/gain, and white balance mode will be added.
  • For the EOS R5 C camera, the following will be added:
    • Ability to adjust the thickness of the AF frame, making it easier to see in certain lighting conditions
    • Ability to reset the AF position by pushing the joystick or set buttons
    • When shooting RAW VR content with Canon’s dual fisheye lens, you will be able to record both the peripheral illumination and chromatic aberration data. This will help with processing footage into smoother and even more amazing VR content than before the firmware update.
    • New features from the March 2024 R5 firmware update.

XA75/70, XA65/60 and VIXIA HF G70 Camcorders

  • Option to view the date and time in the on-screen display (OSD) while recording will be added. White balance will be able to be changed while recording.
