Canon, one of Japan-based technology manufacturers, has officially announced the EOS R3, a mirrorless camera model for professionals. The release date of the device is not yet clear.
Canon today announced that it plans to launch a new interchangeable lens mirrorless camera, the EOS R3, aimed at professionals and demanding users.
The device has a 35mm back-illuminated CMOS sensor. The high performance DIGIC X processor will also be responsible for processing the data in this matrix. It is stated that the EOS R3 camera is designed to provide professional quality for both photography and video recording. The camera will come with the auto focus system Dual Pixel CMOS AF. The photo below presents an image from the RF24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM lens.
Release date and price not disclosed
Canon states that when combined with the DIGIC X image processor, the R3 will help it deliver 30 fps shutter speeds in electronic shutter mode with autofocus and auto exposure enabled, in line with Sony’s A1. Canon also announced that the R3 could do this with “minimal distortion”. This is important because sports and action photographers often avoid electronic shutter mode for fast moving subjects due to the distortion caused by the Rolling Shutter effect.
Overall, as mentioned, the camera will provide high speed, excellent sensitivity and reliability. Unfortunately, Canon has yet to reveal the EOS R3’s launch date and estimated cost.
