Firmware Notice: EOS Ra: Firmware Version 1.8.0

Firmware Version 1.8.0 incorporates the following enhancements:

1. Improves color balance when the RF 50mm F1.8 STM lens is attached to the EOS Ra camera.
2. Support has been added for the following lenses*:

- RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM
* With Firmware Version 1.7.0 and later.

Firmware Version 1.8.0 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.7.0. If the camera's firmware is already Version 1.8.0, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Once the EOS Ra is updated to Firmware Version 1.8.0 (or later), it cannot be restored to a previous firmware version (Version 1.0.0 to 1.7.0).

Please refer to the latest version of the camera’s Instruction Manual that is released with the firmware update.


Download Firmware Version 1.8.0 for the EOS Ra.

This firmware update is for cameras equipped with older firmware versions. If the camera firmware is already the latest version (Version 1.4.0), the firmware update is unnecessary.

If you have not already done so, please register the EOS Ra. By registering, we will be able to notify you via email about future announcements.
