Canon releases updated firmware for the R5 and R6

Canon has released updated firmware 1.6 for the R5 and R6 cameras.

The R5 finally gets a setting in which I've been wanting to see on the R5 camera since they first came out a "heat-gate" became a thing.  Canon needed to add the ability to have the cameras run at any temperature as long as it didn't damage the sensor or camera, just becuase that's what others do (looking at you Sony), and to have a level playing field, this was certainly needed.

It should be noted that you should wear gloves or be really careful with the camera with this setting turned on because you can get low-temperature burning if you are hand holding the camera with bare hands.

Both the R5 and the R6 have also some minor fixes and enhancements.

The full release notes of the R5 are as follows and you can download the firmware here.

Firmware Version 1.6.0 incorporates the following enhancements and fixes:
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.
