Back on March 19, I reported that Canon would release new firmware within the “next couple of weeks”, which seemed to line up with the end of March. The number of times this source has been incorrect I can count on one finger.
So do I have an update on the highly anticipated new firmware arriving for your EOS R5, EOS R6 or EOS-1D X Mark III? Sadly, no.
I only post this because of the number of people that have written in across all platforms who are eagerly awaiting the feature updates, and responding to each person individually takes a lot of time.
The second I hear anything, I will let everyone know.
Update: The new firmware should be available to download on March 30, 2021 (or a day later depending on where you live). The final EOS R5 firmware is version 1.3.0 or 1.3.2 and a reader sent the below image of the new firmware installed on his EOS R5. Canon has been installing it on cameras that went in for service.
Final Firmware Versions:
- Canon EOS R5 v1.3.0
- Canon EOS R6 v1.3.0
- Canon EOS-1D X Mark III 1.4.0
You can get the download links for the new firmware here.
