Canon EOS R3 features in development

Canon promise speed, reliability and sensitivity from this new digital camera which will be compatible with all RF lenses including the telephoto lenses launched today.

Stacked, back illuminated (BSI), CMOS sensor

The EOS R3 will be the first camera to contain a newly developed full-frame sensor with faster output speeds, combined with a Canon DIGIC X imaging processor, enable 30fps continuous shooting while retaining full AF/AE tracking. Back illumination in the sensor offers greater sensitivity. Canon have not announced the resolution of the sensor in the EOS R3.

Built-in vertical grip

Canon have positioned the EOS R3 between the flagship EOS 1DX mark III released in February 2020 and the EOS R5 which launched in July 2020. The EOS R3 will be the first Canon EOS R camera to feature built in vertical and horizontal grips seen in the EOS 1D series. The body will be dust and weather sealed using methods developed with each iteration of the EOS 1D series.

Eye control function

Canon are developing an AF mode which sets the AF point in the frame based on detected eye movement. Change focus area by simply looking to another part of the frame!
