Well, that didn’t take long. After yesterday’s leaked photo of the upcoming Canon EOS R3 mirrorless camera, Canon has today officially announced its development. The EOS R3 isn’t the EOS 1DX Mark III replacement, though. According to Canon, it sits somewhere between the EOS R5 and the EOS 1DX Mark III, which means there’s still going to be an EOS R1 on the way at some point.
The new camera is no slouch, though, offering an all-new Canon-developed full-frame stacked BSI CMOS sensor. Canon says this provides “substantially faster read-out speeds during still-image recording” allowing for an impressive 30fps continuous shooting. Oh, and it’s also getting Eye AF back. No, not that one, the one that focuses wherever your eyeball is looking.
