Canon has confirmed the upcoming EOS R3 mirrorless camera, and they are not messing around.
In a short teaser video and press release, the company confirmed the camera and some of its specs, and they are quite impressive. The EOS R3 will indeed include an integrated grip similar to a 1 Series body, with Canon saying its weather- and dust-resistance will be on par with the flagship bodies as well. In addition, the body will utilize a newly developed stacked CMOS sensor with a back-illuminated design for much faster readouts and thus, less rolling shutter. The camera will have a continuous burst rate of 30 fps to match that fast readout.
On the autofocus front, the camera will bring the EOS R5 and R6's capabilities along with eye autofocus capabilities for animals and birds in addition to people. What is even neater is that the R3 will bring back a feature not seen since the film days: eye-controlled autofocus. Users will be able to select an initial point for AF tracking simply by looking at the spot, making it easier than ever to follow quick action. It looks like things are getting quite exciting for Canon fans!
