Minor firmware update for the EOS R5

The EOS R5 has received a minor update to version 1.1.1 - however, this may be important to some that are experiencing issues with blurred photos and continuous shooting.

Below is the patch notes from Canon USA and you can download the patch here.

Firmware Version 1.1.1 incorporates the following fix and enhancement:

1. When the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is attached, an image stabilization effect of approximately six stops* is achieved through collaborative control with the in-lens image stabilization.
*Focal length 500mm, Based on CIPA(Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards.
2. Fixes a phenomenon in which the IS capabilities may be degraded when performing continuous shooting in cases where the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is attached to the EOS R5 running firmware version 1.1.0.

This firmware update is for cameras equipped with firmware up to Version 1.1.0. If the camera's firmware is already Version 1.1.1, this update is unnecessary.When updating the firmware of your camera, please first review the instructions thoroughly.
