Canon has announced some super exciting news! The development of the new Canon EOS R3! This high-performance, powerful, professional, full-frame camera is getting ready to join the current lineup of EOS R full-frame mirrorless series cameras. Representing a new category in the EOS R System, next to the EOS R5 and EOS-1D X Mark III. The camera will put great emphasis on superb AF performance and speed, with fast-moving subjects, and is being designed to meet the reliability and durability demands of professionals, even when working in challenging conditions!
First and foremost, the R3 will be an EOS camera! The R3 will have a full-frame stacked CMOS sensor and a back-illuminated design, providing substantially faster read-out speeds during still-imaging recording. This completely new sensor is designed to produce less “rolling shutter” distortion during Electronic Shutter operation and offers continuous Electronic Shutter still-image shooting at speeds up to 30 fps, with full Dual Pixel CMOS AF and auto exposure.
The AF system will leverage technology and performance from the well-received EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras, using Deep Learning technology to further enhance eye and body detection for even better performance during portrait and action-type shooting. In addition, the EOS R3’s subject detection AF will offer new recognizable subjects for its AF system, bolstering its focusing capabilities during challenging shooting conditions.
The Electronic Viewfinder of the R3 will offer photographers the ability to select the initial area for AF tracking by simply looking directly at the viewfinder location where they want to begin AF. With Eye Control AF and Servo AF activated, the camera will focus on and track moving subjects at that location in the frame. When Face Detect + Tracking is active, the camera will continue to follow moving subjects around the entire active AF area.
The camera body will be entirely new and accentuates the camera’s high-performance design. It’s a one-piece design, integrating the body with a vertical grip section. The weather and dust resistance will be equivalent to that of EOS-1D class cameras. This is an essential consideration for nature, wildlife, sports and photojournalism content creators working in extreme conditions.
