Canon releases a new firmware for the EOS R5. With the version number 1.1.0 the behaviour of the camera at overheating changes significantly. With the first firmware version 1.0 it was hardly possible to record longer clips in high quality video modes without very long cool down times. We could already take a look at the new firmware and have dedicated an own review in our article section.
Furthermore, Canon has improved the stabilization in video mode and optimized the interaction of the stabilization with the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM.
Also interesting sounds the outlook on upcoming functions in the next firmware updates: The EOS R5 shall get a Canon Log3 option as well as a "Lower bit rate option for 8K RAW video recording", which should mean Canon RAW Light. The future updates should be available for free, but no specific dates were mentioned.
The now introduced Firmware Update 1.1.0 for the EOS R5 should be available for download on the Canon servers.
In addition Canon has indicated in its press release that they want to offer the current improvements also for the EOS R6 with a firmware update, which will probably primarily relate to heat management and video stabilization. But this does not mean that Log3 will be available for the R6, too.
