After pulling the firmware update v1.3.0 for the Canon EOS R6 due to a major bug, Canon has quickly made available a firmware update with a fix.

  1. Firmware Version 1.3.1 incorporates the following fixes and enhancements:

  1. Good news!

    My suspicion is that this was meant to be the 1.3.0 version anyway, but something got missed in the communications. Glad that they jumped right on it.
  2. Yes, there are Mac and Windows versions to those who are asking. But the download isn't working properly. It opens a blank, white browser window and nothing happens. No download begins. Just another April Fool's joke from Canon?
  3. They should have thrown in some zebra highlight warnings as an apology gift :p
    Yes absolutely, come on Canon, surely this is simple as! It’s so much more efficient to know where your highlight is clipping rather than in playback.
