EOS R6 Firmware page not responding


I'm having trouble downloading the firmware update 1.6.0 [MacOS] for my EOS R6. I've tried multiple computers and browsers and each time, it times out and says that "the server where this page is located isn't responding." I reached out to support via email and they told me to try the Canon Canada support page. I received the same result. Any advice?

I'm using MacOS Monterey version 12.6 trying to download Firmware version 1.6.0 [MacOS]




There are tools online to check SHA256 File Checksum to make sure that the file you downloaded is the real thing, or that nothing was corrupted during download. I have written the hashes below from the different files.

  • sha256 checksum is 9a37c5dcb418351e102fb18ec174e408a68da3a3c7dd4798adf716f3ac5559e2 eosr6-v160-mac.dmg
