With its professional-level EOS R3 full-frame mirrorless camera, Canon is bridging the gap between the EOS R5 and the flagship EOS-1D X line. Advances center around autofocus performance and speed with fast-moving subjects.
The EOS R3 features the same Dual Pixel CMOS AF II with 1,053 AF Points and evolved EOS Intelligent Tracking and Recognition as the EOS R5 and R6. It uses deep learning technology to improve eye and body detection for portrait and action photography. The EOS R3 adds vehicle subject recognition and tracking for cars and motorcycles.
The camera’s 24.1-megapixel back-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor is paired with a Digic X processor for high-speed readout and continuous blackout-free capture at up to 30 fps in silent electronic shutter mode or up to 12 fps using the mechanical shutter. Native ISO covers the range from 100 to 102,400.
Video capabilities include 6K 60p raw and 4K 120p 10-bit uncropped video capture at with Canon Log 3 support. It’s priced at $5,999.
