At long last, it’s here. Canon has been teasing us for months now about the upcoming launch of its latest flagship camera — the EOS R3 — and now we finally get to see the sharpshooter in all of its glory. The best part is: it’s even better than we could have expected.
Billed as the “most technologically advanced full-frame mirrorless” Canon to date, it slots in above last year’s R5 and just below the veritable EOS-1D X. As such, the R3 comes with a host of high-end hardware, including a 24.1MP back-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor, a DIGIC X processor, and a lightning-fast electronic/mechanical shutter. In practice, this makes it an ideal camera for sports and wildlife photographers, as it allows for up to 30fps continuous shooting, 150-still 14-bit RAW bursts, as well as completely silent operation. What’s more, the R3 boasts impressive ISO and autofocus capabilities, ranging from ISO 100 to 102,400 and providing for some 1,050 AF points across the entire sensor. Housed in a lightweight magnesium body, it even comes with automatic eye control input and 5-axis image stabilization. You’ll be able to buy it this November for $6,000.
