Canon EOS R3 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body Summary

Everything about the Canon EOS R3 mirrorless digital camera body is designed for speed, from the new Canon developed stacked back-illuminated full frame sensor with 24 megapixels, right through to USB-C and 5G connectivity. Professional sports, action, wildlife and news photographers gain a groundbreaking option with the R3, simply brimming with the latest Canon technology focused on high speed shooting and getting the competitive advantage. The camera has been designed with a built-in pro sized grip, robust magnesium alloy body as well as familiar ergonomics for those shooting with an EOS-1D X Mark III.

Headline features include superb ISO capabilities, a blackout-free high res EVF and unreal AF capabilities with industry leading subject tracking from the Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system. You can even simply look at your subject and half press the shutter to start tracking it. That is called Eye control AF and works with Humans, Animals and Vehicles for motorsports.

Canon EOS R3 Camera Body in More Detail

High quality, at high speed

The EOS R3 is the first EOS series camera to feature an entirely new 35mm full frame back illuminated stacked CMOS sensor developed by Canon. Combined with the power of its DIGIC X imaging processor, professionals using the EOS R3 achieve next-level, high-speed photography and filmmaking. Using the camera you can enjoy 30fps with AF/AE tracking with minimal image distortion (rolling shutter) when using the electronic shutter. This is perfect for the likes of professional sports photographers challenged with capturing action within a fraction of a second.

Impressive tracking of fast-moving action

Professionals can push creative boundaries with pin-sharp accurate tracking and focus on fast-moving action. The EOS R3’s next generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF can track subjects’ eyes, heads and bodies travelling at speed, for unparalleled performance capturing even the finest of details in a split second. What’s more, Canon reveals motorsports tracking with this body, including cars, bikes and driver helmet.

AF control with your eye

The EOS R3 features new and improved technology first seen in Canon’s EOS 5 (see our blog post of the Canon EOS R3 vs EOS 1D X Mark III for more details).

It is the first EOS digital camera to provide a new generation of photographers with ground-breaking Eye Control Function, which enables users to simply select and move the AF point using their eye via the viewfinder. This instinctive feature offers professionals natural and ultra fast control over AF. Reducing the time to focus, which is usually done with a multi-controller/button, this feature is again perfect for photographers looking to capture the most important subject for their frame at speed, whether that’s during a news conference or photographing a team sport. 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

Professional build quality

Inspired by the EOS-1D series the EOS R3 body allows for ultra-intuitive control in the most demanding professional situations. Professionals can expect the same durability with dust and water resistance as found in legendary EOS-1 series Canon DSLR bodies. The camera also has an integrated grip that EOS-1D series users love and trust, with very similar dimensions of 150 x 142.6 x 87.2mm Vs 1DX III : 158 x 167.6 x 82.6mm. With EOS R3, professionals have the confidence to keep on shooting whatever the conditions, whether they are pitch side or poolside, inside or outside, in snow or sunshine.

Fast connection with Canon’s new Mobile File Transfer

The EOS R3 will be fully 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.

RF lens mount with converters for existing DSLR lenses

Use the native RF lens mount or a choice of EF to RF mount adapters: EF TO EOS R Adapter (standard), EF TO EOS R Adapter with control ring, EF TO EOS R Drop in CPL filter Adapter and EF TO EOS R Drop in VND filter Adapter.

The range of native RF lenses is growing with every focal width now covered including three professional super telephoto options: RF 600mm f/4L IS USM, RF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF 100-500mm L IS USM.

What’s in the box

  • Canon EOS R3 Camera Body
  • Rechargeable Li-ion Battery LP-E19
  • Battery charger LC-E19E

Optional Accessories

It’s worth mentioning the new multi-function hot shoe accessories in particular below, as these cable-free and battery-free designs are a minor revelation. More compact, lighter and no forgotten batteries to charge or cables to dislodge.

Our Verdict

When Canon releases new mirrorless cameras these days you simply have to sit up and take note, as is the case with the EOS R3, which enters new territory for any type of camera. Canon has combined every possible technology into a professional high speed capable body, which is aimed at enticing their existing DSRL users across to mirrorless, while offering a phenomenal upgrade to anyone considering a sports and wildlife body. It’s all about speed across the board and it simply blows you away. From start-up times to high speed shutter and frame rates, a high speed blackout-free EVF, high speed Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, even high speed 4K/120p video through to high speed USB-C and 5G connectivity. There is simply no confusion on any single element that Canon is pulling out all the stops with this pro camera.

Anyone new to the EOS R system will be astonished by the highly effective body IS, particularly when combined with key RF lenses. Up to 8-stop stabilisation has proven to be accurate with other cameras in the line-up and the gains are extremely welcome for any subject. When you simply have to get the shot, other tools are also available, including industry leading AF tracking which now includes motorsports as well as Human and Animal Face and Eye detection. Canon’s reinvention of Eye control AF is also groundbreaking, offering a completely new way of subject acquisition, which will only get better with refinement.

A pro sized grip, LP-E19 battery compatibility, weather sealing and a new multi-functional hot shoe are little touches to ensure everyone is more than happy switching to the R3. If you need speed, this is the ultimate choice whatever camera you currently use.
