EOS RP and R firmware updates

Canon recently released two new firmware updates for their full-frame mirrorless digital cameras: the EOS RP and the EOS R.

The updates will focus on the cameras’ Auto Focus (AF). There are improvements in their face and eye recognition system. Additionally, the AF’s focus and tracking system are improved as well. There are a few other updates that include some bug fixing. Let’s look at what the updates will bring to the cameras.

EOS RP Firmware Version 1.3.0

  • Eye detection Auto Focus improvements. Better face and eye recognition at greater distance
  • Improves Auto Focus. Helps camera focus on and track smaller subjects
  • Reduces lag time between the actual Auto Focus (AF) and the AF frame display for images in the viewfinder or on the LCD
  • Fixes a phenomenon where the Main dial icon may not appear when magnify/reduce button is pressed during the image playback
  • Fixes PTP communication vulnerability

EOS R Firmware Version 1.4.0

  • Eye detection Auto Focus improvements. Better face and eye recognition at greater distance
  • Improves Auto Focus. Helps camera focus on and track smaller subjects
  • Reduces lag time between the actual Auto Focus (AF) and the AF frame display for images in the viewfinder or on the LCD
  • Fixes a phenomenon where the AF frame size cannot be changed in the Servo AF setting
  • Fixes PTP communication vulnerability

If you have the latest firmware version, these updates are unnecessary

These firmware updates are for EOS RP and EOS R camera with older firmware versions. If your camera came with the latest firmware (EOS RP 1.3.0 or EOS R 1.4.0) already installed, you don’t need to perform additional updates.

If you need to get the firmware, you can get them for EOS RP and EOS R by visiting Canon’s support portal.
