Canon EOS R5 and R6 1.1.1 Firmware Released + New EOS Cinema Camera Coming on Sep 24th

Shortly after the release of Firmware Update 1.1.0 which aimed to improve the cooling time on both the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras, Canon has just released the next camera update. This time around, Firmware Version 1.1.1 focuses more on the EOS R6.

The just-released firmware allows EOS R6 users to switch on the overheat control of the device when choosing to display an image via the HDMI output while also displaying an image on the camera’s screen. It’s stated that temperature detection and shooting time limits when shooting video have also been improved. You can find the fool details below.

  • 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.
