Canon officially announced the new Canon EOS R3 full frame mirrorless camera. The US price is $5,999 and it will be released on November 30, 2021.
The Canon EOS R3 is the company’s first high-end mirrorless camera designed for sports, wildlife and photojournalism. The EOS R3 is built around a 24MP Stacked CMOS sensor, which delivers fast readout for rapid shooting, responsive autofocus and low rolling-shutter video, but it also includes a host of innovative features, including the return of Canon’s Eye Control autofocus system, last seen in film SLRs of the late 90s and early 2000s.
This Canon EOS R3 camera bridges the gap between the immensely popular EOS R5 and the world-renowned Canon flagship EOS-1D X line.
