Very disappointed in this release.  I lived  with bad battery for over  a year.    

Digital-Teleconverter is nice and  unexpected.  Should be on photo side as well but not in this release unfortunately.

 No mention of any photo updates in release notes.  They really need to bring both development sides together.  Seems like canon forgets the R5C is the ultimate machine.

 Super disappointed el5 not supported.  Guess my newly arrived el5 will gather dust as the community suggested it would be supported.

I really wanted updates in SF mode 4k120 with magnification, tracking head and eye.  

Wireless options without the added grip were also something I really wanted for gimbals and streaming. 

I hope this is not the last update.

I'm disappointed as well.

Greetings ,

I also am surprised why support for the EL-5 and ST-E10 was not added in this release. The EL5's release was delayed, and once the new firmware was announced, I believed the two would coincide with one another.  It seemed to make sense, as we were seeing every other camera with a multi-function shoe receiving support.  It's also a canon accessory which performs one of the most basic functions on a camera.

I am still grateful for the update.  Any enhancements or features added after the camera was purchased is a bonus.  However, I'm not going to purchase an EL-5 until it's supported.  I'm sure this won't be the last update.  If not already done, leave product feedback, and make a feature request using the [+]Feedback option at the top of the Canon USA website.  I did this again last night.

Greetings,

Early report:

I have seen reports of a potential bug in the new v1.0.4.1 firmware.  Its on the photo side.  I have not tested this yet.  I've asked one of the users for clarification. His comments were:

Shooting photos in one of the C1 C2 C3 custom modes it can get confused and think it has the R5 pixel shift feature resulting in huge file sizes. Have tried it and can confirm. Doesn’t really effect me as I never use the C1 ect modes but could be annoying to some.

“Just switch it into one of custom modes. Turn off camera, then turn it back on. The pixel shift should be on at this point. I tried resetting settings, but it didn't help.”

One of the questions that was asked is how a camera without ibis can go into PS mode.  The user claims he got 2 JPEGS.  One small and one giant. 🤔  Not sure if this means we'll get another firmware release, but maybe?

What functions are restricted when power save mode is enabled?  Source: Canon Asia

An updated version of the user guide (video edition) was released the same day as the firmware.

shadowsports_0-1687013268939.png

Network Functions are mentioned.  For a moment I thought > Basic Start/Stop for video via Canon Connect (but no 🙁).  It pertains to wired ethernet.

The power saving mode added more than 20 min of recording time in 4k.  This means you can easily run for over an hour on a single battery.  I didn't run for the full time, but the battery indicator held up during stationary shooting.

I tested the digital teleconverter.  This is a huge feature and allows you to bump from 1.5x ~ 3.0x.  I didn't notice any degradation in IQ.  I only played back on the LCD though.  The 3x perspective was massive.  These modes could be useful for product reviews and macro videos.  If Canon could do this on the photo side (and I'm pretty sure they will) think how great it would be not to have a TC built into a lens.  Everyone wins.  👍   

Time to boot and switch between photo/video and vice versa.  This was about 8-9 sec.  It never bothered me.  After the update, the camera now boots and switches between modes in about 3 sec. 

Tried the new AF features.  What's new > Face and Head Detection (Video Menu, Tab 5)  With this on and Eye Detection on, your subject can rotate from Face and Eye to side of face/head to back of head, and the AF tracks extremely well.  If you turn off Eye Detection, the AF grabs your head and tracks regardless of rotation or orientation.  Face, facing forward, or back of head moving closer or farther away from the camera, and all without you having to tell it what to look for. It just works.  😎 

The one last thing I haven't done is test the AF subject selection via Control Ring or dial.  Many asked for the ability to use the rear dial for aperture adjustment in video mode.  Now you can do subject selection.  I have programmed Button 9 for Tracking and can toggle between subjects that way.  The dial may be quicker.  Not sure yet, but its great the dial now has a purpose in video mode.

All things considered, this is a fantastic update.

Greetings,

This is worth watching.  I can reproduce this behavior.  There does appear to be an issue with the new v1.0.4.1 FW on the photo side. 

My test:

RAW+JPEG. I changed the shooting mode to "M". I then enter the menu and saved the settings to Custom Settings 1. This changes "C1p" to "C1m". At this point captured images are over 100mb. Had I been in JPEG only capture mode, I might have seen the PS logo. More testing is needed, but it looks like the camera is trying to use pixel shift which is not possible since the R5 C doesn't have ibis.

 I could not get the PS icon to appear after taking a photo, but I did take 3 consecutive photos and each was over 100mb. This is not typical except when you are using pixel shift.  The R5 C does not have ibis, so this should not be happening.  The update is fantastic, but users should be aware of this issue.

Team Canon plz add EL-5 and ST-E-10 support to the stills side of the camera while you're at it.
