Firmware Version 1.3.0 incorporates the following fixes and enhancements:

  1. Adds [Canon Log 3] to [Canon Log settings]. You can select [Canon Log] or [Canon Log 3] from [Canon Log settings] in the Shooting tab of the menu.
  • Support for RAW movies shot with Canon Log3 and RAW (Light) will be available in Cinema RAW Development and in Digital Photo Professional version in a future update.
  • Digital Photo Professional will also support the processing of RAW movies shot in Canon Log3 settings and the application of Viewing LUT in future update.
  1. Adds [RAW (Light)] to the movie recording size and [IPB (Light)] to 8K/4K to enable lower bit rate shooting. These settings can also be selected when RAW+MP4 is set.
  2. Adds a high frame rate of 119.9 fps/100.0 fps to the Full HD movie recording size.
  3. Adds [Electronic full-time MF] to the AF tab of the menu. When a lens is attached, manual focus adjustment is always possible with both One-shot AF and Servo AF.
  4. Adds [6: Monitor Off] to [Shooting info. disp.: Screen info. settings] in the Shooting tab of the menu. This update makes it possible for the camera’s monitor to be turned off at all times during shooting.
  5. The transfer time (estimated value) now displays on the camera monitor during FTP transfer.
  6. Adds the ability, when transferring images via FTP, to select protected images that failed to be transferred and protected images that have not yet been transferred and transfer them all at once.
  7. Adds [Save/load cam settings on card] to the Function settings tab of the menu.
    This allows you to save the camera settings to a card, or load a saved file and restore the camera to the settings you saved to a card.
  8. Fixes a phenomenon, in which, in rare instances, the camera does not function normally when using certain CFexpress cards.
  9. Fixes a phenomenon, in which in rare instances, the camera cannot function normally when the drive mode is set to “High-speed continuous shooting” to shoot still images continuously.
  10. Fixes a phenomenon in which the power may become suspended when the camera is powered via USB for an extended period of time.

Firmware Version 1.3.0 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.2.1. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.3.0, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

The following Applications have been updated accordingly:

  • Camera Connect 2.7.30
  • EOS Utility 3.13.20
  • Digital Photo Professional 4.14.0
  • Canon RAW Plugin 2.2 for Final Cut Pro X
  • Canon RAW Plugin 2.7 for Avid Media Access
    Please download the Applications as well as the latest firmware.

The EOS R5 receives a number of upgrades including Full HD 120p and support for greater customization of the camera. Another new addition is the ability to capture lower bit rate RAW movies to reduce the size of the RAW video files which makes file transfer faster. The update also adds Canon Log 3 which is goodo see. Canon have also now given you the ability to record lower bit rate IPB movies.

Users will now be able to save personalized and preferred camera settings to a memory card, which can be copied across to a different camera or used when settings are adjusted. There is also the option to turn the LCD monitor off during shooting and use it for playback only. The EOS R5 also gets full-time manual support for RF lenses, allowing photographers to override the focus of RF lenses manually when in Servo AF mode.

You can also now share photos with the new Protect Image Transfer function that allows protected images to be locked – preventing them from accidentally being deleted – and transferred via FTP.

EOS-1D X Mark III

1DXMIII 4

Firmware Version 1.4.0 incorporates the following fixes and enhancements:

  1. Adds [RAW (Light)] to the movie recording size and [IPB (Light)] to 4K to enable lower bit rate shooting. These settings can also be selected when RAW+MP4 is set.
  2. The transfer time (estimated value) now displays on the camera monitor during FTP transfer.
  3. Improves communication reliability when using FTP and USB simultaneously.

Firmware Version 1.4.0 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.3.0. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.4.0, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Just like with the EOS R5, the EOS-1D X Mark III gets the ability to record lower bit rate RAW video files. The EOS-1D X Mark III also gets Canon Log 3, the log gamma curve used by all Canon Cinema EOS cameras. The camera also receives the ability to capture lower bit rate IPB movies so you can create small, easily shareable video files.

Firmware Version 1.3.0 incorporates the following fixes and enhancements:

  1. Adds [IPB (Light)] to 4K to enable lower bit rate shooting.

  6. Fixes a phenomenon in which the power may become suspended when the camera is powered via USB for an extended period of time.

The R6 only receives IPB (Light) 4K, the option to turn the LCD monitor off during shooting and use for playback only, and the ability to now achieve full-time manual support for RF lenses, which allows users to override the focus of RF lenses manually when in Servo AF mode.

Apple M1 Support

Canon has also released several software updates today to complement the above firmware upgrades and bring support for Apple M1 processors via Rosetta for Digital Photo Professional (DPP) with v4.14 and EOS Utility with v3.13.20.
