    Firmware Updates for EOS R5, EOS R6, EOS-1D X Mark III, RF70-200 f/2.8L IS USM and RF100-500 f/4.5-7.1L IS USM

    Thank you for using Canon products.

    We are pleased to share that the following products would be receiving firmware updates that further improves the functionality of your Canon product through enhancements and fixes.

    EOS R5 – Firmware Version 1.3.0

    1. Added Canon Log 3 to Canon Log settings, a log gamma curve that possesses largely the same characteristics with Canon Log 1 but with a wider dynamic range. It is also found in our professional line of cameras, the Cinema EOS Series, allowing easier post-production camera matching work between the EOS R5 with Cinema EOS cameras.
    2. Added Low Bitrate recording option, allowing users to shoot smaller file size footage with lower image details. This is very useful for longer recordings that do not require the best possible image quality or when storage space is a concern.
    3. Added 120p Full HD video recording, allowing users to have the flexibility to select desired resolution for slow-motion content thus allowing more convenience during post-processing.
    4. Electronic Full-time Manual Focus
    5. LCD Backlight OFF option
    6. FTP Transfer Status Display
    7. Protect Image Transfer
    8. Save/Load Settings on Card
    9. Fixes a phenomenon, in rare cases where the camera does not function normally when using certain CFexpress cards.
    10. Fixes a phenomenon, in rare cases where the camera does not function normally when the drive mode is set to “High-speed continuous shooting” to shoot still images continuously.


    EOS R6 – Firmware Version 1.3.1

    1. Adds [IPB (Light)] to 4K to enable lower bit rate shooting. 
    2. Adds [Electronic full-time MF] to the AF tab of the menu. When a lens is attached, manual focus adjustment is always possible with both One-shot AF and Servo AF.
    3. The transfer time (estimated value) now displays on the camera monitor during FTP transfer.
    4. Fixes a phenomenon, in which in rare instances, the camera cannot function normally when the drive mode is set to "High-speed continuous shooting" to shoot still images continuously.
    5. Fixes a phenomenon that may corrupt the image displayed in the viewfinder.
    6. Fixes a phenomenon in which the power may become suspended when the camera is powered via USB for an extended period of time.
