New Canon EOS R5 Firmware Coming in Q1 2021

By on

The next firmware update for Canon EOS R5 is scheduled to be released in Q1 of 2021. This new EOS R5 firmware is said to be already installed on select cameras and getting tested in beta version.

Canon EOS R5 firmware update primarily bring the C-Log3 and Full HD 120fps, in addition to lower bit rate options in RAW as well as IPB in all frame rates and codecs. So expect Canon to add 120fps in 1080p and lower bit rate options in 8K to the EOS R5.

The Canon EOS R5  (AmazonB&HAdorama) supports high-resolution DCI 8K 30 fps raw video recording internally along with 4K recording up to 120 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit with Canon Log, as well as up to 20 fps burst shooting with an electronic shutter and up to 12 fps with a mechanical shutter.

Latest Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 firmware update was not the one we were expecting. It was a minor upgrade and 1080p video at 120fps is on the horizon for the next firmware update. New firmware update for Canon EOS R5 will feature addition of 1080p @ 120fps, Clog 2 and 3 with bug fixes.

Features we can expect for the new firmware of Canon EOS R5:

  • Canon Cinema RAW light addition
  • C-Log 2 and 3
  • 1080p @ 120fps
  • Further tweaking of temperature control
  • Bug fixes
  • Other codecs are being worked on, but may not arrive in time for the November release.

Canon recently announced an EOS R6 firmware update to address overheating issues. Does firmware 1.1.1 for EOS R6 improve the camera’s video performance?
