As well as the firmware update for the EOS R5, Canon has also announced v1.4.0 firmware for the Canon EOS R3 (buy here). Unfortunately, the new pixel shift feature of the EOS R5 doesn’t appear to have translated over. What it does have, however, is improved facial recognition. You’re now able to have it remember specific people in an attempt to focus on them.
This newfound ability will be very handy for several photographers, including wedding and sports shooters. Being able to focus on specific people throughout the course of events such as these can prove to be extremely useful and ensure more keepers. After all, you don’t want to be shooting a wedding party and have it randomly focus on drunk aunts and uncles behind the wedding couple all the time.
