Canon Firmware Update First Look | Canon EOS R & EOS RP


Wow! Sony has some serious competition in the autofocus
game. I got an early preview of the new Canon firmware
update that doesn’t release until September 30th for the EOS R and EOS RP and honestly,
I am shocked at the improvements! And the best part is that it’s FREE. Some people have said they prefer Sony’s
AF over Canon, but this update may change the game. Before I get into it, we publish new content

but what can you expect with this update? The main nuggets are that it has: Better eye
detection auto focus at greater distances, Better Autofocus tracking on smaller subjects,
and Better initial subject recognition. Now when testing it out on the “R” and the
“RP”, I did notice that the difference in the performance of the EOS R was more substantial
than on the RP. The main upgrade is obviously the eye-detect
auto focus and tracking, but is it that much better than before the update? Well, see for yourself: Now here’s a side-by-side comparison between
the two as you see the eye detect cut off on the previous firmware about a couple of
steps back. Whereas, I was able to get about twelve to
fifteen feet back with the updated firmware. Both were shot using the same lens, set at
the same aperture. The autofocus is now so good that I was thinking
it performed just as good as a Sony. So that got me thinking if that was actually
the case and I couldn’t resist. I set up a Canon with the new firmware update
and pitted it against a Sony to see how good the Canon autofocus really was. And as you can see, both cameras maintained
eye detect AF to about the same point, where both switched to face detect AF. Now as I get closer to the display case way
behind me in the back…the Sony switches to the wide AF area, wheras Canon stays on
face detect tracking. So, what do you think? Who is winning the AF game? What team are you on? Now I’m very impressed with how much Canon’s
autofocus improved with the update. If you’re thinking this firmware update
was going to be another minor one, quite the opposite. This one is a game-changer and really improves
how this camera performs. I highly recommend that you do it, especially
since it’s FREE. So how do you update your firmware? Well, once the firmware update is released find your
specific camera on Canon’s website. Make sure you choose the exact model, whether
it’s the EOS “R” or the “RP”. Also make sure to download the correct version
for your operating system, whether you’re using Windows or Mac OS. Then click “Agree” and download the firmware,
save it onto an SD card. Now make sure that you format you SD card
before putting the firmware on there. Don’t put the file in a folder either, just
copy the file straight to the card. Then, with a fully charged battery insert
the SD into your camera. With your camera on a “manual” setting
go to the menu and select the firmware option. A dialog box will appear asking if you would
like to update and press “ok”. Keep your camera on as it does the update. Once it finishes, you’re good to go! If you have any issues or questions let me
know in the comment section below. Are you excited about this update? I know I was shocked at the difference it
made. If you liked this video remember hit the thumbs
