Canon has released firmware version 1.1.0 for its Canon EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera, bringing along a new silent shooting mode and a few bug fixes.

The first firmware update for its first full-frame Mirrorless Camera, firmware version 1.1.0 is a rather insignificant one with only a few bug fixes and minor tweaks and changes.

The only addition in firmware version 1.1.0 is the inclusion of silent shutter mode when using continuous shooting. Aside from that, the firmware simply corrects the following issues seen in version 1.0.0:

  • Corrects a phenomenon in which an error may occur if there is a large number of files in a specific format on the memory card.
  • Corrects a phenomenon in which an error may occur when silent shutter has been enabled.
  • Corrects a phenomenon in which horizontal linear noise may occur when using specific lenses together with certain recording image quality settings.
  • Corrects a phenomenon in which the information displayed in the viewfinder may become abnormal.

The firmware is available to download here. Once downloaded, the ZIP file includes the firmware file, as well as a folder with installation instructions in English, French, Japanese, Spanish and Chinese.
