Canon’s new v1.1 firmware for the EOS R5 fixes many bugs, enables longer video recording

Canon has released firmware version 1.1 for its new EOS R5. The first major update for the mirrorless camera that only went on sale last month, v1.1 brings several fixes and enhancements, including improved temperature detection and shooting time control during video shooting.

Here’s the full list of changes, according to Canon:

  1. Useful messaging is now displayed when [HDMI display: Camera+External monitor] and [Overheat control: on] settings are enabled.
  2. When using certain RF lenses for movie shooting, the in-lens image stabilisation mechanism has been improved.
  3. Fixes a phenomenon in which the “Slow Synchro” setting screen is not accurately displayed, when the language is set to English.
  4. Fixes a typo displayed on the communication setting screen, when the language is set to Korean.
  5. Connectivity during FTP transmission has been improved.
  6. Fixes a phenomenon, in which the card access time may take longer, when using certain CFexpress cards.
  7. Temperature detection and shooting time control in video shooting have been improved. In addition, the total shooting time when the short-time recording and power-on/off are performed repeatedly at room temperature is improved.
  8. The phenomenon in which the movie recording time available is not correctly displayed when the Date/Time/Zone is not set has been corrected.

According to the release notes, there will be another firmware update in early Sep that adds 6-stop image stabilisation and better IS performance during continuous shooting to the RF100-500mm F4.5–7.1 L IS USM lens.
