Firmware Friday: New lens support and bug fixes for Canon EOS R and RP


posted Friday, August 23, 2019 at 9:19 PM EDT


For the second week running, our Firmware Friday roundup is a pretty short one, this time bringing with it news of just two updates from one company. (And both of them are pretty minor ones, too.)

The Canon EOS RP has received its version 1.2.0 update (download here), and the EOS R is now on version 1.3.0 (download here). In both cases, there's new support for the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM zoom lens.

For the EOS R, that's all, but for the RP there's also one further bug fix. Previously, images shot with an external flash strobe using high-speed sync could be underexposed towards the top of the image, but in the new firmware this has now been fixed.

And that's all for this week. Be sure to check back next time for more firmware news!
