The EOS R3 features a dual-grip design, and water and dust resistance equivalent to that of the EOS-1D class cameras.
Canon has announced the details of EOS R3 – its latest high-speed mirrorless camera, designed for professional sports and news photographers to meet challenging demands.
The EOS R3 features a new Canon-developed BSI stacked CMOS sensor, a DIGIC X imaging processor, shooting capabilities of 30fps with AF/AE tracking, eye, head and body detection and a new autofocus Eye Control Function. It is suitable for action photographers looking for quality images, both still and moving, of objects travelling at intense speeds.
Built on the EOS R System, with its RF Mount and paired with one of Canon’s RF lenses, the camera offers a lot. With lenses like the RF 400mm F2.8L IS USM and RF 600mm F4L IS USM, professionals can achieve optical excellence and performance.
The EOS R3 will feature the Eye Control Function, which enables users to simply select and move the AF point using their eye via the viewfinder. This feature offers natural and speedy control over AF.
Professionals can expect the same durability and dust and water resistance as provided in Canon’s EOS-1 series bodies.
The EOS R3 will be compatible with Canon’s Mobile File Transfer smartphone app. This provides a new way to transfer images and speed up workflow whilst on the move, using mobile network services and without the need for wired LAN equipment.
Canon is launching version 1.2 of its Mobile File Transfer for iOS in June, which is compatible with Canon’s EOS-1D X Mark III, EOS R5 and EOS R6.
Canon also announces the RF 100mm F2.8L MACRO IS USM – a macro and portraiture lens with 1.4x close-up magnification. In addition to this Canon also revealed details of a new RF 400mm F2.8L IS USM and RF 600mm F4L IS USM, two telephoto prime lenses designed to meet the demands for sports and wildlife professionals, with incredible focal lengths and capabilities, especially when paired with EOS R3.
