Review of the new EOS R and EOS RP firmware
When Canon did their august announcements, they also announced that they were releasing a new firmware.
The initial video of the firmware was quite impressive, showing detailed object tracking and eyeAF far better than what we've seen from Canon EOS R and EOS RP cameras.
Here's the sample video from Canon about the firmware update
Thephoblographer had a chance to review the new firmware, and by the sounds of it, everyone is going to have to go back and update their reviews after this is released. It's that impressive.
During my session with a version of the Canon EOS R with a beta firmware installed, we found the tracking to be pretty much flawless. We used the Canon RF 50mm f1.2 L USM, Canon RF 85mm f1.2 L USM, and the Profoto B10. The entire system was able to perform on par with what I feel most Sony cameras can do.
In comparison to every other camera system, so far we are finding that the Canon EOS R’s new firmware update is:
- Pretty much comparable to Sony’s, but I’d still put my money on the Sony a9 or the Sony a7r VI for consistency.
- Far better than Nikon’s
- Much better than Fujifilm’s X and GF series
- Significantly better than Panasonic’s S1 and S1R series of cameras
Keep in mind that this was only the Beta version of the 1.2 firmware, it could be even better during production release.
