Canon unveils $ 6,000 full-frame mirrorless camera EOS R3
Canon pushed the boundaries of full-frame mirrorless cameras last year with EOS R5… Now the company releases another pA ro-class camera designed specifically for professional sports and wildlife photographers.: new EOS R3.
Canon requires 6, LLC (body only) The ROS R3 is “the most technologically advanced full frame mirrorless camera.” And while it doesn’t support 8K video like it does on the EOS R5, the R3 has a number of updated features, especially for shooters who require fast reaction times in dynamic conditions.
The improvements start with a new 24.1MP BSI multilayer CMOS sensor in the EOS R3, which Canon says is so good that it delivers better resolution than the 30.4MP sensor on the EOS 5D Mark IV. When paired with the Digic X processor, the R3 can shoot a burst of 150 14-bit RAW photos at up to 30fps with an electronic shutter (or 12fps with a mechanical shutter), with the option to enable fully silent shooting (no autofocus assisted) … light, flash or shutter sound) at the touch of a button.
The EOS R3 also boasts an impressive ISO range from ISO 100 to 102,400 (expandable to ISO 20,400 for stills), as well as autofocus support and tracking settings when shooting at up to 60fps. Canon says the R3 even comes with improved auto white balance, including a new recording and recording white balance mode that makes it easier and faster to set a custom white balance depending on your environment.

The autofocus performance of the EOS R3 has also improved significantly with 1,050 AF points scattered across the sensor and support for improved tracking. including a new vehicle tracking mode (along with improved eye, face and body recognition) to better capture professional motorsport such as F1, rally and motocross.
But perhaps the most enticing change is that Canon is introducing a recently updated version of its Eye Control (Eye AF) system, which allows you to select your subject to focus on just by looking at it with the R3’s electronic viewfinder. While Canon included eye-control AF in previous cameras back in 1992, Canon included this feature for the first time in the EOS R line, suggesting that this feature may finally be ready for even the most demanding professional photographers.
There is a dedicated sensor inside the R3 EVF that tracks where you are the eye is looking, and while Canon admits its Eye AF may not work for all eyes and contact lens types, the company does provide a fairly detailed calibration system that supports operation with or without glasses.
V The R3’s 5.76 million-dot electronic viewfinder now features an OLED panel with 60Hz or 120Hz refresh rates and the ability to switch between classic real-time exposure viewing and an advanced OVF simulation mode that supports a wider dynamic range. And as another great bonus, Canon has included an updated anti-flicker feature that lets you tune the camera to avoid streaks from nearby light sources, with the ability to adjust flicker rejection from 50Hz to 8192Hz.
In terms of video, while the EOS R5 will still be the camera of choice for people if they want 8K recording, the R3 still offers a wide range of capture modes, including 6K RAW 60fps, no crop 4K 10bit 120fps setup. second and much more. And like other high-end EOS R cameras, the R3 offers 5-axis image stabilization that supports up to eight stops of shake reduction (depending on the lens), similar to what you get on the EOS R5 / R6.
Finally, as you would expect from a professional-grade camera, the EOS R3 has a waterproof magnesium alloy body with an integrated vertical grip. And while the EOS R3 is similar in size to the Canon 1DX Mark III, it is around 70% in size. lighter, weighs only 1.81 pounds (body only).
So thenWhile the EOS R3 is definitely not cheap, it looks like a full-frame mirrorless replacement for the aging 1DX Mark III that many high-end photographers have been waiting for. R3 will go on sale sometime in November.
