In April of this year, Canon announced plans to release its flagship Canon EOS R3 mirrorless camera. And now the company is finally ready to share the full specifications and price of this device.
The Canon EOS R3 mirrorless camera features a full-frame 24MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor. The number of megapixels is almost half that of the R5 model (45 megapixels), but the novelty provides faster focusing and shooting speed, as well as better quality when shooting in low light conditions. According to the manufacturer, the new model allows continuous shooting at 12 frames per second when using a mechanical shutter and up to 30 frames per second when switching to an electronic shutter. The camera is capable of recording video in 6K resolution at 60 frames per second and 10-bit video in 4K resolution without crop at 120 frames per second in the Canon Log 3 profile. ).
The Canon EOS R3 has significantly improved its autofocus system. A total of 1,053 AF points are available in the camera. It is noted that the device uses deep learning technology to improve eye and body tracking and focusing. In this case, the photographer can select the focus points or objects to track simply by looking at them. It uses low-power infrared LEDs inside the viewfinder to scan the direction of the gaze. The camera is capable of automatically tracking people, animals and vehicles in both photo and video modes.
Among other characteristics of the new item are an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 5.76 million dots, a 3.2-inch swivel touchscreen display with a resolution of 4.2 million dots, an integrated image stabilization system that can work in conjunction with a lens stabilization system and provide stabilization equivalent to 8 stops of exposure. For storing footage, CFexpress and SD UHS-II memory cards can be used. Also available are Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless modules, wired LAN and USB-C interfaces. The case is made of magnesium alloy, it provides protection from dust and negative weather conditions, and also has a vertical holder from the beginning.
Canon’s new EOS R3 mirrorless camera will go on sale in November for $ 5,999.

Compact ultra-wide angle 16mm f / 2.8 lens priced at $ 299.99; 100-400mm f / 5.6-8 telephoto lens priced at $ 649.99.
