A new Canon firmware update is rumored to arrive soon. on the horizon. According to recent reports, some users experience a weird phenomenon, a sensor twist, on their EOS R5 when IBIS is set to “always on”.
Canon will release a new firmware update to address the IBIS shift/tilt on the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 cameras.
Dpreview user juanmaasecas documented the phenomenon in the video below.
Some weeks ago I found what I think is an annoying bug with the IBIS in the Canon R5 (some users also experience it with the R6).
When the ibis is set to “always ON”, the sensor twists after the first picture is taken, producing a blurred picture. If you keep pressing the shutter half (while in continuous autofocus or just In single) and then take more pictures, the rest are just fine.
I went to Canon repair center/showcase here in Hong Kong, and the cameras there show the issue as well (that is why I didn’t leave my camera for repair), and yet canon has not yet repaired the issue (I discovered it first in firmware 1.2.0 that I bought the camera with, but still happens in 1.3.0 and 1.3.1).
Both the Canon EOS R5 and the EOS R6 are super hot selling mirrorless cameras on the market. Canon EOS R5 in stock. Canon EOS R5 with 24-105mm f/4L Lens: $4,999 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
