There were complaints of a “fatal Bug” less than 24 hours following the introduction of the newest firmware for the Canon EOS R6, version 1.3.0, and as a result, the firmware is no longer accessible.
After only twenty-four hours of its first release, the most recent version of the firmware for the Canon EOS R6, version 1.3.0, was taken down from Canon’s website and is no longer accessible. It has been noted that the firmware creates problems while shooting 1080p video at 100 or 120 frames per second in cropped mode or when using EF-S lenses.
Additionally, yesterday saw the release of updated firmware for the EOS R5 and the EOS 1D Mark III, both of which appear to be untouched by any problems that have been discovered thus far.
According to a report by Canon Rumors, several camera websites from across the world have removed the newly released EOS R6 software as well as advertising materials relating to the firmware since yesterday.
The following statement can be found on the official Canon support page for the EOS R6: “Unfortunately, the current firmware version 1.3.0 for the EOS R6 is temporarily unavailable. We anticipate the firmware becoming available in the near future so please check back soon for your download.”
Although many users will not yet have downloaded and installed the most recent firmware, many early adopters will now be stranded until a fix is available and will be unable to roll back to prior versions of the software. Do you shoot with a Canon EOS R6? Have you updated the firmware on your device to the most recent version?
