You are currently viewing New firmware 1.6.0 for Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6
Note: there is already a new firmware version 1.7.0, which only contains bugfixes.

Again, Canon has released a new firmware ver­sion for the Canon EOS R5 and R6. The imple­ment­ed inno­va­tions focus this time on the video area. Accord­ing to Canon, the fol­low­ing fea­tures have been implemented:

  1. (EOS R5 only) In Video mode, the “Auto pwr off temp.” item has been added to the SHOOT8 menu. When [High] is select­ed, the cam­era will not turn off auto­mat­i­cal­ly if the tem­per­a­ture of the cam­era body and card becomes too high, allow­ing longer movie record­ing than before depend­ing on the shoot­ing con­di­tions. How­ev­er, this may cause the tem­per­a­ture at the bot­tom of the cam­era to sig­nif­i­cant­ly increase.

  2. Mul­ti­ple HEIF images can now be con­vert­ed to JPEG images simultaneously.

  3. The per­for­mance of “Movie Dig­i­tal IS” has been enhanced. It sta­bi­lizes the image when tak­ing self­ies or when shoot­ing while walk­ing with a wide-angle lens.

  4. Oth­er minor issues (not spec­i­fied in detail) have been fixed.
