Canon has released the latest firmware updates for the EOS R and EOS RP. According to Canon, version 1.4.0 for the EOS R and version 1.3.0 for the EOS RP improve the autofocus capabilities of the full-frame mirrorless cameras.

The firmware updates incorporate the following enhancements:

  • Enhances eye detection Auto Focus (AF) for improved face and eye recognition at greater distances.

  • Improved Auto Focus (AF) performance helps the camera to 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 PTP communication vulnerability.

In addition, the EOS R update fixes a phenomenon in which the AF frame size cannot be changed in the Servo AF setting, while the EOS RP update fixes a phenomenon in which main dial icon may not appear when magnify/reduce button is pressed during the image playback.

The firmware updates for the EOS R and the EOS RP can be downloaded from Canon USA.
