Canon EOS R5 & R6 Firmware Update Version 1.1.1 Released

By on

Canon has released a new firmware update version 1.1.1 for the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 mirrorless camera. This new firmware addresses the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM lens for image stabilization and fixes several phenomenons for both cameras.

On the other hand the new firmware for EOS R6 allows you to set the [Overheat control: On] when choosing to display an image via the HDMI output while also displaying an image on the camera screen. Temperature detection and shooting time limits when video shooting has been improved. In addition, the total shooting time when the short-time recording and power-on/off are performed repeatedly at room temperature has also been improved.

Check out the Canon EOS R5 & R6 Firmware Update Version 1.1.1 details and download links.
