Canon revealed additional details of their EOS R3 full-frame pro mirrorless camera




Canon revealed additional details of their upcoming EOS R3 full-frame pro mirrorless camera:

“Diving deeper into this sensor we see some huge improvements to low-light operation. This new sensor can apparently autofocus in as low as -7 EV. Autofocus is expected to be among Canon’s best, and the use of deep learning technology will improve the tracking performance. Specifically, the R3 now supports tracking motorsports like cars and bikes in addition to people and animals.

We now know that the R3 will definitely have in-body sensor-shift stabilization. When Coordinated IS with both sensor and lens stabilization this can achieve stabilization of up to 8 stops.

That up to 30 fps continuous shooting figure is confirmed to work with raw formats. An interesting tidbit has to do with flash. This upgraded stacked sensor will now permit shooting with flash while using an electronic shutter. Canon specifies this function will work with their Speedlites.

Video is an increasingly important spec and we finally have some information on this aspect of the R3. It will record oversampled 4K, offer Canon Log 3, and record in raw. Also, that AF system will track people, animals, and motorsports while shooting video. Not a ton of information still, so a lot more to learn.

Body design is what you would expect from a camera of this caliber. It has a magnesium alloy construction, has wired LAN, 5GHz Wi-Fi, and takes the large LP-E19 Battery Pack. Completely new is the hot shoe, which is now being referred to as an accessory shoe thanks to a new data and power transmission capability. This will support some all new accessories.

Some nice to know features include 1 Series operation blended with modern R5 design. You can see a multi controller, the smart controller with touch support, and a large vari-angle screen. Plus, you have three dials for intuitive control over your essential settings. Finally, the R3 will have a dual media setup with both CFexpress and SD slots.” (source: Explora)
