Canon has just added Canon Log 3 to the EOS R6 full-frame camera with the latest firmware update v1.4.0, now available to download.
Other new features in the latest firmware include simultaneous video recording onto both memory cards and improved stability with the new Canon RF 400mm f2.8 IS USM and RF 600mm telephoto primes.
Some of you may recall the previous firmware v1.3.1, which a few months ago added a lower bit-rate IPB recording option in 4K video to the Canon EOS R6. You can explore in more detail the new features and improvements in the previous firmware update here.
And also, it was around that same time Canon added C-Log 3 and RAW light recording to the more expensive EOS R5 full-frame camera.
Canon EOS R6 Firmware Update v1.4.0 Details:
- Added Canon Log 3 option to Canon Log settings
- Simultaneous movie recording on Card 1 and Card 2
- Improved stability when using the RF 400mm F2.8 L IS USM and RF 600mm F4 L IS USM
- The following bugs have been fixed:
- a bug in which, during HDMI connection, if the camera’s screen turns off, a zebra pattern is displayed via the HDMI output.
- fixed an issue in which sufficient image stabilization effects may not be attained immediately after the start of shooting.
Please note that this latest firmware v1.4.0 is for cameras with the previous firmware version 1.3.1 or older. If you just bought the R6, you can check your firmware version as it is possible this v1.4.0 may have already been installed in the factory.
