Outpace. Outperform: The New Canon R3 Professional Mirrorless Camera

Table of Contents

Canon today introduced the Canon R3, a professional-grade full-frame mirrorless camera that builds on the success of the EOS R camera series. The new camera makes use of Canon’s technological improvements since the debut of the first EOS R in 2018 and fills the gap between the wildly popular EOS R5 and the world-renowned Canon flagship EOS-1D X series. The Canon R3 is the first ‘3′ series camera since the widely used EOS-3 film camera debuted in 1998.

The Canon R3 features place a strong emphasis on excellent autofocus performance and quickness when shooting fast-moving subjects. It was created to fulfil the needs of experts for dependability and endurance, especially when operating in harsh circumstances.

The Canon R3 Megapixels, Lowlight Capabilities & FPS.

A Canon-designed and manufactured 24.1-megapixel back-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor is at the heart of the Canon R3. The sensor is Canon’s first of its kind, and when combined with the DIGIC X processor, it provides a high-speed readout that enables continuous blackout-free shooting at up to 30 frames per second in electronic (silent) shutter mode and up to 12 frames per second in mechanical shutter mode, with minimal rolling electronic shutter distortion.

The combination also improves the native ISO range of 100-102400, which can be expanded to 204,800 for still photos, as well as the high sensitivity and light-capturing efficiency of the camera.

The Canon R3 Autofocus & Tracking

The camera, like the EOS R5 and R6, has an enhanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF II with 1,053 AF Points and developed EOS iTR tracking for objects including the eye, face, head, animals2, and select vehicles and motorbikes down to EV -7.5. In addition, the camera has an in-body image stabilised (IBIS) vibration correction of up to 8 stops3.

The Canon R3 employs Deep-Learning technology to improve eye and body identification for even greater performance during portrait and action-type shooting, drawing on technology and performance feedback from the popular EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras.

The Canon R3 camera will provide photographers with the opportunity to pick the beginning region for AF tracking by just gazing straight at the viewfinder position where they wish to begin AF by using a new 5.76-million-dot and 120fps blackout-free Electronic Viewfinder.

The camera will focus on and track moving subjects at that position in the frame if Eye input AF2 and Servo AF are enabled. When Face Detect + Tracking is enabled, the camera will track moving subjects across the active AF region.

The Canon R3 Video Specs

The Canon R3 camera not only captures stunning still photos but also has excellent video capabilities. In addition to oversampled 4K and RAW movie internal recording, the camera can shoot 6K 60p RAW and 4K 120p 10-bit uncropped video with Canon Log 3 compatibility. The Canon Log 3 profile, which is commonly used in filmmaking, helps to prevent highlight blowouts.

Furthermore, features such as the industry-standard BT.709 and BT.2020 colour gamuts, as well as the cinema gamut, aid with colour and tone consistency. Even when utilising a lens without built-in Optical IS, coordinated 5-axis IBIS helps to compensate operator motion or shaking, allowing for dependent video capture.

The Canon R3 is available to order Here. We are expecting strong demand for this camera and the earlier pre-orders will get stock first so please contact us directly or purchase here to confirm your order. If you require any expert advice please contact us here or use the live chat feature in the corner of your screen. Today’s release also saw the Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM Lens & the Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM Lens.

Outpace. Outperform

A camera that allows you to capture sport, wildlife and breaking news like you’ve never seen before. Stay ahead of the race with 30fps continuous photography and sophisticated connection that allows you to meet your deadline, and identify subjects just by glancing at them – a genuinely intuitive experience.

Introducing the next chapter in EOS

The Canon R3 will alter your perception of mirrorless cameras. A novel back-illuminated stacking sensor can freeze motion at 1/64,000 frames per second while still allowing for continuous filming at up to 30 frames per second. Eye-controlled AF detects and follows subjects while you shoot, making it ideal for sports, news, and wildlife photography.

Advanced connectivity

The Canon R3 uses Its wired LAN socket and 2.4/5GHz to talk to computer networks, laptops and mobile devices for fast, easy image sharing and remote camera control.

Mastering movement

At 30 frames per second, the Canon R3 catches ephemeral moments, exposing subtleties that the naked eye misses.

The back-illuminated stacking sensor on the camera is so quick that it allows photographers to utilise an electronic shutter to catch fast movement without fear of “rolling shutter” distortion. Enjoy a maximum shutter speed of 1/64,000sec and burst shooting at 30 frames per second with simultaneous AF/AE tracking.

Advanced eye-control AF

Have you ever used a camera that seems to read your mind? The Canon R3 focuses wherever you are looking thanks to our next-generation Eye Control autofocus technology. This unrivalled AF control enables the camera to react as rapidly as you do, allowing you to react swiftly to constantly changing scenarios.

The best subject tracking yet

We taught the Canon R3 to recognise people, animals, and cars precisely and confidently – wherever they move in the frame – using deep-learning artificial intelligence and thousands of real-world photos.

Even if they are wearing a mask, helmet, or sunglasses, they can be tracked. When capturing motorsports, the Canon R3 can distinguish between motorcycles and race cars, as well as closed and open cockpits, and can even locate a driver’s helmet when it is visible.

A fusion of video and still-photo performance

The Canon R3 is a professional hybrid camera that can shoot cinematic, broadcast-quality video as well as stunning still images. The camera can capture oversampled 4K and 6K RAW footage internally to a CFexpress card, among other features that empower filmmakers to new levels of creativity. Canon Log 3 offers a wider dynamic range and more colour grading options.

Importantly, the same object recognition technology used by still photographers is also used by videographers, allowing you to track moving objects around the frame while working.

Connected to the world

For sports and news photographers, connectivity is essential. The Canon R3 communicates with computer networks, laptops, and mobile devices through its wired LAN connector and 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi for quick, easy image sharing and remote camera operation. The EOS R3 is also compatible with our Mobile File Transfer software, which allows professional photographers to add information to photos and transfer them through Wi-Fi or mobile phone data from a smartphone.

The Canon R3 also has a new multipurpose accessory shoe that serves as a hot shoe for current Speedlites and triggers, as well as providing data transmission and power for new accessories.

The Canon R3 is a thoroughbred racehorse. Its shape and form are inspired by our EOS-1DX series cameras, but it is smaller and lighter, and it incorporates design concepts from the mirrorless EOS R system for excellent handling.

The camera comes with a multi-controller and a smart controller, both of which are intuitively within reach of your thumb. Shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and exposure compensation can all be changed with the camera at your eye thanks to three customizable knobs on the camera body and a Lens Control ring on each RF mount lens.

The Canon R3 also has a four-million-dot high-resolution Vari-Angle screen, which is bright and clear even in strong light. It allows you to effortlessly create from a variety of creative viewpoints. Image data and video footage may be written to widely accessible SD cards (with UHS-II compatibility) or super-fast, next-generation CFexpress media using dual card ports.
