Last month, Canon released new firmware for the Canon EOS R6, version 1.1.1. Jordan and the folks at DPReview have now done an extensive review of the latest firmware version for the Canon EOS R6 and came away quite impressed with what Canon improved with the new software.

Check out the video above for the full review.

  1. Improvements to video record limits with the firmware update and now it looks as if the November update will also add improvements towards that feature. I feel like I bought the R5 at a very reasonable price for what it is shaping up to be even before it rolls out fully to the public.
  2. I bought the R6 + Ninja V thinking that I could get around the overheating like some people did with the R5 but I still encounter overheating at the same rate.

    Yeah I watched this before I bought mine. I shoot real estate videos for a living and I've had my R6 overheat at every single shoot multiple times sometimes after 15 minutes while recording externally. I am in florida though so I'm sure the warm weather doesn't help.

    Once you set overheat control off in order to get clean HDMI output the overheating countdown will start even when you are not recording.

    Can't you get a clean HDMI output with overheat control on using the new firmware?
  7. Did I understand this right, its not possible to record in any 4k mode with the R6 without running into an overheat?
    Not unless you use an external recorder or record for less than an hour at a time.

    I must say I can work around the limitations of the R5. But not beeing able to record 4k reliable for over an hour AT ALL is pretty disturbing.
    I guess this emphasizes even more the photography party of the camera than the 6D was at its time.
