R6 (fw 1.2.0) frenquently freezes

Hello, my R6 (bought in Jan 2021) starts to freeze after taking a photo, EVF turned to black and nothing is helping except taking the battery out and in again.

Till now it was working without any problems. Do you think new fw woulf help?

I´m using my R6 with Canon adapter with 16-35/4 IS, 24-70/2.8 II, 70-200/4 IS and problem occurs with all my lenses.

Thanks

Re: R6 (fw 1.2.0) frenquently freezes

I assume you upgraded to 1.2.0 a while ago but the issue only started recently?  Could the issue be the adapter- I m assuming you are using the same one for all 3 lenses.  Wonder if you can borrow another adapter and see if it solves the issue?  Or perhaps try an RF lens such as a 50 1.8 and see if it persists?

You can also try resetting settings and custom functions- this may help

I have not experienced this.  I’m actually running older firmware but was considering upgrading to latest.

Good luck and let us know.

Phil

Re: R6 (fw 1.2.0) frenquently freezes

Regarding your question about firmware, latest version is 1.4.0, which includes this fix from 1.3.1 - so you may consider upgrading to latest firmware.  Are you experiencing the issue in High Speed continuous?

"Fixes a phenomenon, in which in rare instances, the camera cannot function normally when the drive mode is set to "High-speed continuous shooting" to shoot still images continuously."
