    I've just bought a R5 but the menus are in Japanese/Chinese ? Is there any way to fix this ?

    Have you tried reading the manual? I assume that it is in English.

    You must have bought the International version. Go to "wrench", then go to "2", scroll all the way to the bottom and click on the last "thing". Pardon me but I do not speak that language. Then you can scroll to your language of choice. Good luck.
