Update the Canon R5 to Firmware 1.6.0 [VIDEO]

It wasn't too long ago that you were stuck with the firmware that originally came with your camera. Fortunately, time's have changed and its easier than ever to update your camera to the latest firmware. This video is a simple walkthrough of updating the Canon R5 to the 1.6.0 firmware.

Please note that these steps are the same for any future firmware, so whether you're here for 1.6.0 or another firmware, the steps will be the same.



Simple but Important Changes

  1. Adds [Auto Power Off Temp.: Standard/High] to the menu for movie recording. When [High] is selected, the camera will not automatically turn off when the temperature of the camera body and card become high, which may allow for longer movie recording than before, depending on the shooting conditions. Note that the temperature of the bottom surface of the camera may increase at this time.

  2. Adds the ability to convert multiple HEIF images into multiple JPEG images.

  3. Enhances the performance of "Movie Digital IS". It stabilizes the image when taking selfies or walking shots using a wide-angle lens.

  4. Fixes minor issues.
