Canon Asia has shared a notice on its website informing EOS R owners that firmware version 1.2.0 for the full-frame mirrorless camera will be available sometime in the middle of April 2019.
According to the notice the update will include improved Eye-Detection AF that supports Servo AF when shooting still images and it will now be an available option when shooting video, regardless of the Movie Servo AF mode.
Canon has also addressed various fixes for the following issues:
1. Under certain conditions the electronic level displayed in the electronic viewfinder did not display properly.
2. Under certain conditions information displayed in the electronic viewfinder was not properly rotated.
3. Under certain conditions updating the firmware for the wireless file transmitter WFT-E7 was not possible.
DPReview will keep an eye out for an announcement on the release and cover it when it’s live, but you can also keep tabs on the EOS R firmware page throughout April.
