Canon is planning to add some new functionality to the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera via firmware update. The new firmware is expected to be released in October after the release of Canon EOS R.
The EOS R is Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera. It features a 30.3MP CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel AF and an ISO range of 100-40000(expandable to 50-102400). The EOS R can record both 14-bit (CRW) and compressed (C-RAW) formats. It can shoot continuously at 8 fps in single AF and 5 fps with continuous AF. The Dual Pixel AF system has a whopping 5655 selectable AF points and it can function at light levels as low as -6EV.
What’s coming in the firmware?
- Eye detect AF in continuous shooting. The EOS R launches with the ability to do this in one shot.
- Additional touch bar functionality added.
- Continuous shooting in silent shutter mode. The EOS R only allows this feature in single shot at launch.
- A “few tweaks” to video functionality. The 4K crop will not be changed, nor will the maximum frame rate in 4K.
- Bug fixes
And we expect to see more functionality added to the Canon EOS R mirrorless camera in the next several years.
