Firmware updates for EOS R5, R6, R, Ra and RP cameras


Canon has released various firmware updates for its EOS R system, which primarily make the R-series cameras compatible with recently released products, such as the Speedlite EL-1 and selected new RF lenses announced this year.

EOS R5 and R6
Firmware Version 1.2.0 incorporates the following enhancements and fixes:

EOS Webcam Utility software

Canon has developed EOS Webcam Utility software to bring easy-to-use, plug and play, webcam-like functionality to selected Canon cameras (see below for full list of compatible EOS models). This allows you to use your camera as a high-quality webcam for personal or business video calls. The free software is currently Beta, which means that Canon welcomes feedback about bugs and suggestions for additional features. Also, it can only be used with Windows 10 64-bit at present, though compatibility with other computer operating systems is likely in the future. UPDATE 28 May 2020 EOS Webcam Utility Beta is now also available for Mac OS – 10.13 (High Sierra), 10.14 (Mojave) and 10.15 (Catalina).
