Canon has released firmware updates for its EOS R5, EOS R6, and EOS 1D X Mark III camera systems, bringing new features and improvements, especially for its EOS R5 mirrorless camera.
Firmware version 1.3.0 for the Canon EOS R5 brings Canon Log 3 shooting to Canon’s current flagship mirrorless camera. Canon Log 3, commonly shortened to C-Log 3, is available in Canon’s Cinema EOS Series cameras and is a ‘logarithmic gamma curve designed to achieve very wide dynamic ranges and be compatible with cinema production workflows.’ This addition not only adds more flexibility to footage captured with the EOS R5 as a standalone camera, but should also make it easier to color match EOS R5 footage when used in conjunction with Canon’s Cinema EOS Series cameras.
Canon has also added Full HD recording at up to 120 frames per second (fps) as well as a new Low Bitrate recording option, which Canon says allows ‘users to shoot smaller file size footage with lower image details.’
Other updates in the updated include electronic full-time manual focus, a new LCD backlight off option, an FTP transfer status display, protected image transfer, save/load settings on card and a few bug fixes.

Firmware version 1.3.0 for the Canon EOS R6 isn’t quite as dramatic as it is for Canon’s EOS R5, but it still adds the low bitrate recording option, electronic full-time manual focus, the FTP transfer status display and bug fixes.
