Cannon announced that its parent company, Canon Inc., is developing a new, high-performance professional camera – the Canon EOS R3, When it arrives, the EOS R3 will be an outstanding complement to the three new RF lenses the company also introduced – The Canon RF 100mm F2.8 L Macro IS USM, RF 400mm F2.8 L IS USM, and RF600mm F4 L IS USM.
Under Development – The Canon EOS R3
The Canon EOS R3 will join the current lineup of EOS R full-frame mirrorless series cameras. This camera will usher in a new category to the EOS R system, positioned squarely between the EOS R5 and EOS-1D X Mark III cameras. The camera will put great emphasis on superb AF performance and speed, with fast-moving subjects. It is being designed to meet the reliability and durability demands of professionals, even when working in challenging conditions.
At the heart of the EOS R3 camera’s performance will be an EOS camera first, a Canon-developed, full-framed staked CMOS sensor with a back-illuminated design, providing substantially faster read-out speeds during still-imagining recording. This completely new sensor is designed to produce less “rolling shutter” distortion during Electronic Shutter operation and offer 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 EOS 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, AF2 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.
