I removed all the modes I don't use on the R5, so cycling is quite quick for me.[..]I would have preferred if the R5 had the same mode dial as the R6, which can be instantly cycled through the modes, rather than the more awkward "press centre and turn dial" method of the R5, but Canon presumably thought the posh LCD panel added a bit of class to the design.
This. I currently have it mapped under 'My Menu' as 2nd best option. And I would also very much like to have the C1, C2 and C3 modes also being available for video shooting... Otherwise pretty happy with FW 1.5.0 so far :-DGood morninh to ALL.
What I need in next firmware is to be able to change from Q MENU people to animals or car.It's a very significant lack.
I'll be in Kenya for the next couple of weeks using the 180mm macro to photograph butterflies and dragonflies, so that should provide an answer about whether the IBIS is more efficient with the non-stabilised 180mm after the firmware upgrade.Please test this and share here.
Unlikely to be an error, more like a deliberate choice. After all, the update features for the R5 and R6 are identical, so it would be pointless having a separate thread devoted to each. Perhaps the best idea would have been to just combine the R5 and R6 articles so they had a common thread.(Not sure why there's error in the R5 firmware thread where I can't comment)
What CF-E cards were you using when you had the lockups, and under what circumstances did the lockups occur? (were you shooting long bursts?)That’s interesting to know.
For me it has been the exact opposite - I had 3-4 lockups using really fast CF-express cards (happened when data was writing to the card). I now use 170MB/s SD cards and have not had 1 lockup in over 20,000 frames. These days I just keep the CF express for taking 8k clips.. but have learnt not to trust them for stills (specifically for my camera).
@TheSalvatore hiSingapore Canon website has officially released the R6's v1.5.0 firmware. Can be found here https://sg.canon/en/support/0400709802?model=4082C
Canon R5 Firmware is also released on the web - https://sg.canon/en/support/0400709602?model=4147C

Ditto! My most used lens on my R6 these days."Optimizes controls of In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS) when using specific EF lenses not equipped with the image stabilization function."
Ah, good. I hope this applies to the EF 180mm F3.5L macro, one of my favourite lenses.
Ok, convinced and updated to FM vs. 1.3.1.Not true, that version still has the IBIS bug. On the first shot after waking up the camera from power saving mode, the sensor always tilts and may blur the corners of the picture, if the shutter speed is low enough. If you're in burst mode, it may affect several shots.
Plus, you're missing new features.
Anyway, I'm keeping a backup of all previous firmwares since I bought my R6, just in case I ever need to downgrade (which hasn't been the case so far).
