Own a Canon EOS R camera? Then it's likely you have a new firmware update waiting for you. Canon has just released a bonanza of firmware for cameras including the EOS R6 Mark II, R8, R7, R10 and R50, as well as the EL-5 Speedlite.

Firmware is crucial to ensure that older cameras keep working smoothly with newer lenses and equipment as they are released, quashing pesky bugs that can crop up in the software, as well as just implementing improvements to camera and lens performance that Canon has been developing behind the scenes.
