High Image Quality with a Back-illuminated Stacked 24.1 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor

Canon’s first full-frame, back-illuminated stacked CMOS image sensor in the EOS R3 delivers substantially faster read-out speeds and produces much lower "rolling shutter" distortion than previous EOS models. The new sensor architecture also increases light capturing efficiency which leads to cleaner low light photos while possessing the ability to capture them as true 14-bit RAW files in electronic shutter mode.

DIGIC X Image Processor with an ISO range of 100-102400; Expandable to 2048001


The EOS R3 camera features a powerful DIGIC X Image Processor, enabling high-performance operation and coordination or processes such as Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, Image Stabilization, image processing, and video functionality. Featuring an ISO range of 100-102400 (expandable to 204800), the EOS R3 camera delivers a large range of standard and expanded ISOs (for still images), and a flexible set of auto options to help enhance shooting in varied and fast-changing lighting situations.

High-speed continuous shooting of up to approx. 30 fps with electronic (silent) shutter and up to 12 fps with Mechanical Shutter

Delivering incredible performance at speeds of up to 12 fps with the mechanical shutter and up to 30 fps with the electronic (silent) shutter, the EOS R3 camera can capture the split-second details between a subject’s movements. This is ideal for dynamic action photos such as athletes, animals, cars and motorcycles in motion.

Suppressed rolling shutter distortion

Thanks to the high-speed readout of the new sensor, the EOS R3 delivers less rolling shutter distortion in fast moving images.

Improved Dual Pixel CMOS AF with 1,053 AF Points featuring Vehicle Detection as well as Eye, Face, Head, and Animal Detection.2

The EOS R3 camera’s highly responsive Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system has been improved with features such as the incredible 1,053 Automatic AF zones as well as improved servo AF cases utilizing eye, body, face, head (now including helmets), animal and now vehicle subject detection. Fast action can be captured and focus can be maintained throughout each burst capture with speed, accuracy and ease.

Low-luminance limit for AF: EV -7.5.

The EOS R3 can now focus down to an astounding -7.5 EV allowing for amazing nighttime photography with exceptional focus accuracy. This ultra-sensitive AF works in concert with the EOS R3's EVF to clearly capture subjects even when there's limited light.

The First EOS Digital camera to feature Eye Control AF

Improving on a feature that was popular on the EOS 3 film camera, the EOS R3 takes it into the digital mirrorless range of EOS cameras making subject focus fast and more precise. Eye control AF is controlled by the user simply looking through the Electronic Viewfinder at the subject they want to focus on, selecting that point, and shooting. This is just one more way the EOS R3 gives the photographer another option of easily and intuitively controlling focus.

5.76-million-dot & 120 fps blackout free EVF with quick response3, as well as a Vari-Angle Touchscreen

The EOS R3 camera features a high-precision EVF with approx. 5.76 million dots reducing lag time during continuous shooting. Displaying a bright image and extensive shooting information that rotates with the camera, the EVF adds an OVF simulation view assist feature which recreates the natural field of a traditional optical viewfinder. The EOS R3's blackout free EVF when in electronic shutter mode supports a 120 fps refresh rate and has been created to provide a bright, sharp and colorful 100% continuous view of the tracked subject at hand, displaying a crisp and vivid image with minimal aberration or distortion. The EOS R3 also features a 3.2-inch Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD that can be ideal for composing and reviewing your photos as well as making menu changes. Tap the screen during Live View while taking photos or videos and the camera will quickly lock focus to that specific location in the image.

Capable of recording 6K 60P RAW or 4K 120p 10-bit (uncropped) with Canon Log 3

Designed and developed with Cinema EOS pairing, the EOS R3 leverages its capabilities of 6K RAW at 60 fps or 4K 120 fps uncropped. What’s more, the camera can also leverage 6K and 5.6K oversampling in 4K DCI and UHD respectively, resulting in a higher image quality with less moiré, color distortion and noise. Flexible recording modes ranging from 8 to 12-bit recording using HDR PQ, Canon Log 3, RAW and of course EOS Standard enable the user to choose the post-production workflow needed for the project.

In-body Image Stabilizer can provide up to 8 stops of Shake Correction.4

Incorporating 5-axis IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilization) found on the EOS R5 and R6 cameras, the EOS R3 will not only enhance the ability to shoot still images at slower shutter speeds but it will also help reduce camera shake when shooting movies. Additionally, the EOS R3’s IBIS will work in combination with the Optical Image Stabilization found in many Canon RF lenses producing a total of up to 8-stops of shake correction.

Dual Card Slots for CFexpress and UHS-II SD Memory Cards

Whether you are shooting photos every day, or are recording 6K RAW videos, the EOS R3 camera can write an incredible amount of images and videos quickly to its super high-speed CFexpress** dual card slots. Plus, a UHS-II SD*** card slot is also provided as a convenient alternative for main memory card duties or as a backup.


**Type B compatible.
***Some types of data cannot be saved on the SD memory card.

Next Generation Multi-Function Shoe plus Speedlite EL-1 synchronization.

The next-generation Multi-Function Shoe adds functionality including wireless radio flash control for still photography, and also is capable of inputting digital sound data during movie shooting along with network communication when connected with a smartphone. In combination with compatible accessories, it expands the realm of shooting stills and movies alike and the potential of communication.

Wired LAN, USB, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth Technology

The EOS R3 includes both wired and wireless connections for multiple methods of image and video transfer. The camera is equipped with a standard Ethernet interface (IEEE 802.3u, 1000BASE-T) and connector (RJ-45) for a fast and secure hardwired connection. The built in 5GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connections in the camera enables the photographer or videographer to easily upload image or video files to a smartphone, computer or to a cloud service using image.canon. For iOS smartphone users, high-speed file transfer over 5G is possible through a compatible smartphone and USB cable.


The built in GPS (compatible with GLONASS and QZSS) streamlines the photography and videography workflow by tagging files with GPS location coordinates and accurate camera timestamp metadata making file and chronological organization easier.

Enhanced Operating Controls and Accessories.

The EOS R3 has a multitude of ways to naturally and ergonomically interface with the camera. First is the built-in vertical grip which gives the user more control in both landscape and portrait modes as the major imaging interface buttons are duplicated on the portrait side of the grip. Those familiar with the button and LCD layout on the EOS-1D X Mark III and EOS R5 will feel right at home as the EOS R3 layout is similar to both models. The EOS R3 has both the smart controller from the EOS-1D X Mark III and the multi-controller found on many EOS cameras for additional control over camera features.

Dust and drip resistance equal to the EOS-1D X Series

The EOS R3 camera is designed for use in a variety of weather conditions. Sealing materials are used in critical areas like the buttons, dials, levers, terminal covers, battery compartment and the card slot cover. Precise design and construction help to minimize accidental penetration of dust and moisture in the rest of the camera body. Combined with an RF lens, or any other weather-sealed EF/EF-S lens via the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R, the EOS R3 camera proves to be a reliable partner in virtually any climate.
