Are you a professional photographer looking for a camera to help you take your images to the next level? Here is some exciting news for you! Canon has a new mirrorless camera in the works that could make you abandon all of your other cameras. Here is a rundown of the limited details Canon has released on this new camera that is still in the developing stages.
What’s in a Name?
Though it’s only speculation at this time, the name of this new camera may say a lot. The Canon EOS R3 that will be available from Buydig.com could possibly follow the pattern started by previous Canon models. Since the EOS R3 is a step above the R5, Canon may have a plan to develop a camera to sit in a position above the R3, named R1. Again, this is only speculation based on Canon’s previous camera models. As for now, the Canon EOS R3 will serve as the top-of-the-line R-series camera once released.
The Canon EOS R3 will lead the way with the fastest burst shooting of any previous Canon camera, 30 fps, when using the electronic shutter. This incredible speed is due to Canon EOS R3’s new back-illuminated stacked CMOS image sensor. Developed by Canon, this new back-illuminated sensor allows for high-speed read-out and low distortion. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF will be able to track eyes, heads and bodies traveling at high speeds. The stacked CMOS sensor will undoubtedly open the door to unlimited performance improvements as well.
The Eyes Have It
Canon has brought back a feature from its EOS-3 and EOS-5. This new, technologically more advanced feature will allow you to use your eyes to set the focus on an object. Using this Eye Input AF, you’ll be able to simply look at the viewfinder and set the focus points on still objects. This offers incredibly fast focus changes because the R3 will instantly focus on the person or object when you look at it.
As if the 30 fps shooting capability wasn’t enough to draw you in, the R3 will also have eye and body detection for improved AF performance. This will be the answer for those sports photographers looking to upgrade. The integrated grip design and weather and dust resistant body will give you the confidence to shoot poolside, on the beach or in the snow.
There are still many unknowns about the Canon EOS R3. But what we do know is this camera is going to be unlike anything else you have seen from Canon! Because the R3 is still under development, there is not a release date set as of yet. It will be available from Buydig.com once the R3 is released for sale.
