'Canon’s R3 is a total game-changer for both sports and willdlife, stills and video. The fact-sheet is eye watering, but highlights include a stacked full-frame sensor, 30fps burst shooting, 4K 120 frames 10 bit uncropped video and a 5.7 million dot electronic viewfinder. If that wasn’t enough, this camera not only features subject tracking for people, animals and vehicles, but you can control the focus point just by looking at it with your eye, thanks to Canon’s incredible Eye Control AF. The R3 expands Canon’s EOS R line spectacularly and shows Canon’s continued commitment to sports shooters following on from the ever-popular EOS-1D X series.'

A camera that lets you photograph sport, wildlife and news like never before. Identify subjects just by looking at them – a truly intuitive experience – and stay ahead of the competition with 30fps continuous shooting and advanced connectivity that lets you smash your deadline.
Introducing the next chapter in EOS
The EOS R3 will change the way you think about mirrorless cameras. A new back-illuminated stacked sensor can freeze action at 1/64,000 and powers continuous shooting at up to 30fps. Eye-controlled AF intelligently recognises and tracks subjects as you shoot – superb for sports, news and wildlife photography.
The camera’s back-illuminated stacked sensor is so fast it lets photographers use an electronic shutter to freeze fast movement without worrying about ‘rolling shutter’ distortion. Enjoy a top shutter speed of 1/64,000sec and 30fps burst shooting, with simultaneous AF/AE tracking.
Advanced eye-control AF
Ever used a camera that feels like it’s reading your mind? With our next-generation Eye Control autofocus technology, the EOS R3 focuses wherever you are looking. This unparalleled control over AF allows the camera to react as quickly as you do – allowing you to respond fast to ever-changing scenes.
Canon’s best subject tracking yet
Using deep-learning artificial intelligence and thousands of real-world images, Canon has taught the EOS R3 to recognise people, animals and vehicles accurately and confidently – wherever they move in the frame. People can be tracked even if they are wearing a mask, helmet or sunglasses. When photographing motorsports, the EOS R3 can recognise motorbikes and racing cars, even distinguishing between closed and open cockpits, pinpointing a driver’s helmet when this is visible.
A fusion of video and still-photo performance
The EOS R3 is a professional hybrid, able to capture cinematic, broadcast-quality video and sensational still photography. Bristling with features that empower filmmakers to new levels of creativity, the camera can capture oversampled 4K as well as 6K RAW footage internally to a CFexpress card. Canon Log 3 provides greater dynamic range and colour-grading possibilities. Crucially, the same object recognition available to stills photographers is also available to videographers, so you can track moving objects around the frame, keeping them in sharp focus even when working.
Connected to the world
Connectivity is vital for sports and news photographers. The EOS R3 uses its wired LAN socket and 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi to talk to computer networks, laptops and mobile devices for fast, easy image sharing and remote camera control. The EOS R3 is also compatible with the Mobile File Transfer app, which lets pro photographers add metadata and transmit images from a smartphone, using either Wi-Fi or mobile phone data.
The EOS R3 also features a new multifunction accessory shoe that provides data communication and power for new accessories, as well as acting as a hotshoe for existing Speedlites and triggers.
Designed and built for the pros
The EOS R3 is built to withstand the demands of day-to-day professional use, and whatever life throws at you. From dust storm to downpour, a tough, magnesium-alloy body is dust-and-water sealed to the same level as the legendary EOS-1D series cameras. Have the confidence to keep shooting whatever the conditions throw at you.
Fits right into your existing system
The EOS R3 fits right into your existing system, working alongside your other mirrorless or DSLR cameras. It’s powered by a high-capacity LP-E19 battery – the same as you’ll find in our EOS-1DX series bodies. Your EF lenses will work exactly as they should too, thanks to a range of high-quality mount adaptors, which can also add extra functionality, like a Control Ring or drop-in filters
With its intuitive controls and ergonomic excellence, the EOS R3 is result of the three decades of evolution, constantly informed by the requirements of professional photographers. Enjoy unparalleled ergonomics, with a familiar intuitive interface.
The EOS R3 is also equipped with a four-million-dot high-resolution Vari-Angle screen, that is clear and brilliant, even in bright conditions – allowing you to compose easily from creative perspectives. Dual card slots allow image files and video footage to be written to widely available SD cards (with support for UHS-II) or super-fast, next-generation CFexpress media.
