Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 Get Enhanced Recognition of Subjects with Firmware v1.50

With the latest Firmware v1.50, the EOS R5 and EOS R6 get enhanced recognition of “vehicles” as the main subject. Additionally, both counterparts will provide enhanced AF tracking when it comes to people with improved eye and face detection even when the subject is wearing a mask.

Furthermore, EOS R5 and EOS R6 users will be able to set a custom white balance in Live View and change the settings for “simultaneous recording” and “current drive” during remote operation. Other noteworthy enhancements include full manual focus support for RF 70-200 mm F4L IS USM lens, added EVF Smooth to suppress lower frame rates in low light, the ability to disable the multi-controller for FTP transfer, and more.
