Canon EOS R3 Review

Take a look at the Canon EOS R3 if you want a glimpse into the future of Canon’s mirrorless cameras. Although it may appear like a DSLR from a decade ago, the camera is really one of the most technologically sophisticated sports and wildlife cameras that have ever been made on the inside.

According to Canon, the EOS R3 is intended to fill the gap between the Canon EOS R5, which is the company’s more compact mirrorless all-arounder, and the Canon 1D X Mark III (its chunky flagship DSLR). In actual use, it is a hybrid of the two, and it is the mirrorless successor to the former.

However, Canon has not merely repackaged its previous technology in order to create the EOS R3. It is the prototype for a plethora of new technologies, the most notable of which is a revolutionary backside-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor with 24.1 megapixels.

A view from the front of the mirrorless Canon EOS R3 camera

The stacking construction of this sensor is an imitation of that seen in Sony cameras like as the Sony A1. This gives the R3 a humming photographic engine that is capable of delivering 30 frames per second of raw burst shooting and low rolling shutter in the video.

The EOS R3 is a professional sports camera, but it also has several features that are more typical of video cameras, such as an articulating touchscreen and the ability to capture 6K raw video internally. There is even a contemporary version of the “Eye Control AF” system that was included on Canon SLR cameras in the 1990s. This feature allowed users to select focus points just by gazing at them in the viewfinder of their camera.

But does this exceptionally unusual collection of skills add up to a fantastic camera or one that is a little bit confused? There is no question that this is the case for professional photographers. Not only is it without a doubt one of the greatest cameras in the world for photography, but it is also without a doubt one of the best Canon cameras that money can purchase right now.

If you are a professional photographer and you know that Canon has released the EOS R3, it is going to have a negative impact on your earnings. After all, it is tough to find a justification for shooting anything else while using a camera that makes it incredibly impossible to miss a photo, whether it be as a result of its focusing, its continuous rate of shooting, or its skills in low-light situations.

The pricing of the Canon EOS R3 is definitely less tempting than other options. This is cutting-edge technology, and Canon is well aware of it; thus, the cost of purchasing one will set you back a hefty $6,000, £6,000, or AU$9,000, depending on which currency you choose. After making the decision to use its high-end RF-mount lenses, that number jumps up by a significant amount.

And yet. Take one of these. Make a complete rotation with it in your hands. At least for those who shoot with Canon cameras, this is the most advanced kind of mirrorless technology now available. And while the EOS R3 is unquestionably overkilled for most amateurs, and it is hardly a discreet camera for the street, it is – like the EOS 1D X Mark III before it – the new default choice for professionals who either can’t or won’t compromise and are prepared to put their equipment at risk to get the shot they need.

Although Canon would never refer to the Canon EOS R3 as a mirrorless replacement for the Canon EOS 1D X Mark III sports DSLR, it is abundantly evident that this is exactly what it is. This indicates that it is larger than the Sony A1, which does not have a grip built into it, but it is smaller than its DSLR relatives.

The EOS R3 weighs 822 grams, which is substantially less than the 1D X Mark III, therefore it is easier to hold in one’s palm (or just over 1kg with a card and battery). A weight reduction of nearly 400 grams, which is a significant amount, will make the spines of sports snappers happy.

The EOS R3 is approximately 2.5 centimeters shorter, nearly a centimeter thinner, and approximately 4 millimeters deeper than the Canon 1D X Mark III, but it does not lose any of its grab-ability in comparison to Canon’s other professional-grade cameras. The size difference is less visible.

The grip, which is now covered in an attractive rubber imitation of carbon fiber, is substantial and simple to maintain a firm grasp on. The handling is top-notch and considering that it’s a full-size professional camera, it’s quite light. Canon has accumulated a significant amount of expertise in the field of manufacturing cameras that are as easy to operate as they are to take pictures with, and all of that knowledge is put to use here.

Because the buttons are wide and have rather deep journeys, it is easy to see whether you have successfully pressed one of them, and they may even be used when wearing gloves. Any user who has experience with one of Canon’s more current models will have no trouble getting used to the menu system because it is large, clear, and responsive.

Two hands are used to hold the mirrorless Canon EOS R3 camera.

When compared to smaller models like the Canon EOS R5, the build quality of the EOS R3 and the built-in battery handle is what really set it apart as a professional sports camera. Because its body is constructed of magnesium alloy, it is the most durable mirrorless camera that Canon has produced to this point.

The EOS R3 has the same level of weather-proofing as the Canon 1D X Mark III, but it is not built to withstand the same extremes of temperature as Canon’s bulletproof DSLR. This is primarily a sports camera, as evidenced by the built-in portrait grip, so it was not designed to withstand those kinds of conditions. Additionally, it employs the same LP-E19 battery that is found in the EOS-1D X Mark III. The capacity of this battery is approximately a third larger than that of the LP-E6NH battery used in the Canon EOS R5.

It is very evident that Canon made an effort to make the EOS R3 as comfortably familiar as possible for anyone transitioning from one of their professional DSLR cameras. However, the bulk of its rear buttons are in the same area as on that camera, and it also features the Smart Controller that was first introduced on the 1D X Mark III in the year 2020. On the back of the camera, there is not enough space for the 1D X Mark III’s tiny display.

This touch-sensitive AF-On button functions similarly to an inverted computer mouse in that it enables you to swiftly shift the point of focusing anywhere inside the frame.

In spite of the fact that opinions on it are divided among photographers, Canon evidently received sufficient positive feedback from its professional photographers to decide to include it on the EOS R3; in addition, there is an additional Smart Controller button for when you are shooting in portrait mode. The original, knurled AF joysticks are also available for usage for those individuals who choose not to utilize the updated AF-On button.

In other contexts, the word “festooned” is an apt descriptor for the manner in which the R3 is adorned with buttons. You can set up the camera exactly how you want it with the help of the customizable Fn buttons on the front plate, while the back – and top plate – allow you near rapid access to drive mode, autofocus settings, metering mode, and a lot of other options.

The screen on the back of the device has a touchscreen, so users who would rather navigate the menus by tapping on the screen can do so. The thumbwheel on the rear of the device is also a useful way to navigate the menu selections.

The ports are located on the left-hand side of the camera. The typical ports are there, including HDMI and USB-C, which may be used to transport data as well as charge the device’s battery. Additionally, there are jacks for microphone input and headphones, as well as a flash sync connector.

You will also receive wired Gigabit Ethernet, which is of almost little relevance to the majority of people but is an absolute must for photographers who shoot at crowded sporting events. This is joined internally by 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless, much to the probable displeasure of existing owners of 1D X Mark III cameras, for whom 5GHz wireless is an expensive add-on in the form of the WFT-E9 Wireless File Transmitter.

The Canon EOS R3 is a mirrorless camera, so naturally, there are some variations between it and the company’s sports DSLRs. These changes aren’t huge, but they are noticeable. Its viewfinder and back screen are the two that stand out the most immediately.

The EOS R3 will ship with the same electronic viewfinder (EVF) as the Canon EOS R5, which means it will have 5.67 million dots and a refresh rate of 120 frames per second. This information was provided by Canon.

Canon asserts that this “competes with an optical viewfinder.” In addition, when we put it to use, we discovered that it was, in fact, indistinguishable from genuine optical viewfinders. In addition to that, it has a new option called “OVF simulated View Assist,” which enables you to view what is happening outside the confines of the frame.

This absolutely destroys the competition, notably the Sony A1 with its 1.44 million-dot back screen that can only tilt, and the complete mobility of this screen will be very helpful for videographers. You won’t even realize that the screen on the 1D X Mark III or the EOS R5 is 0.05 inches larger than the screen on the EOS R5, but the fact that it has nearly twice as many pixels is something that you will certainly notice.

It is actually the first vari-angle screen that we’ve seen on a camera that meets Canon’s pro standards for water and dust ingress, and as a result, it feels tough and well made. In addition to this, it gives you the option to flip it over so that it’s tucked safely against the R3’s body when you throw it in a bag, which is a welcome addition. It is also a significant departure from the entirely fixed back screen of the Canon EOS 1D X Mark III, which was created specifically for photographers who shoot sports.

The pinnacle of the mirrorless Canon EOS R3 camera system

The new Multi-Function Shoe in the middle of the camera is an innovative new feature that we have not seen on any other Canon camera to this point. This is a fascinating development since, similar to Sony’s Multi-Interface Shoe, it enables high-speed data communication in both directions between the camera and any suitable accessories that are mounted on top of it. This makes it a potentially useful feature.

Both the new Directional Stereo Microphone (model number DM-E1D) and the Speedlite Transmitter (model number ST-E10) that Canon has released are completely compatible with the new shoe. This implies that they are able to draw power from the camera.

The hot shoe is the same size as Canon’s normal hot shoe, which means that you may use all of your previous accessories with it. On the other hand, it does not produce a weather-proof seal, so if you want full weather-proofing, you will need to purchase an alternative attachment.


  • New Eye Control AF is more than simply a gimmick or a novelty feature.
  • Tracking of vehicles, in addition to individuals and animals, is now a capability of the AF.
  • acquisition of subjects accomplished in record time

One of the primary battlegrounds in the epic conflict between Canon and Sony over mirrorless cameras is autofocus, and the EOS R3 opens new ground for Canon cameras with its innovative focusing capabilities.

Let’s begin by discussing the focusing claims made by the EOS R3 before moving on to our hands-on experience with the camera. It utilizes a Dual Pixel CMOS AF II technology, similar to that of the Canon EOS R5, although there are a few key modifications this time around. In terms of focusing, Canon claims that the EOS R3 is “the quickest EOS R series camera ever.” It is faster than the R5, having the capacity to focus in 0.03 seconds, as opposed to 0.05 seconds for the R5.

Additionally, the EOS R3 is the first Canon camera to use an autofocus setting referred to described as “vehicle tracking.” This is a feature that has previously been seen on the Olympus OM-D E-M1X, and the mode on the R3 works in a manner that is comparable to the Intelligent Subject Detection AF system found on that camera. It does this by locking focus on moving subjects, such as rally cars, motorbikes, and open-cockpit F1 cars, allowing the photographer to concentrate more on composition.

How useful are all of these AF talents if you get them out in the real world? We did not have any disappointments; in point of fact, it is quite difficult to accidentally throw off the focus. This is something that we have been able to say for some time about professional-grade cameras, but whether the lighting was dim or intense, there was little contrast, or the subject was moving quickly, the EOS R3 performed really well.

The Canon RF-mount 24-105mm f/4L and the 70-200mm f/2.8L were the lenses that we used to test it, and both of these pieces of modern-generation glass produced sharp shot after sharp shot when we used them. If you shoot sports or wildlife, the EOS R3 might let you take home sharper images than you’ve ever taken before.

The EOS R3 has a few tricks up its sleeve, much like the other cameras in the RF-mount line. People-tracking is an obvious addition, as is animal and vehicle tracking; however, the most innovative feature is Canon’s Eye Control AF.

In spite of the fact that it may seem like something from the future, this is in fact an updated version of the “eye-controlled autofocus” technology that was first introduced on the Canon EOS 3 SLR in the late 1990s. It enables the camera to determine where you are looking via the viewfinder and then move the autofocus to that location inside the picture when you do so.

The idea is that this will be quicker than using manual controls in situations with a lot of movement, and it will allow you to focus on altering your exposure or composition rather than the controls themselves. According to Canon, the system was taken from technology that was employed in the company’s medical business. The viewfinder has eight low-powered LEDs that track your eye and overlay that information on the sensor.

We are happy to announce that the Eye Control AF option is not merely a marketing gimmick in any way. You can configure it in a number of different ways, but the ultimate result, in which the R3 monitors precisely where you’re looking in the picture and drops the AF point directly on top of it, is incredible. It seems almost as if magic is taking place.

Due to the fact that we do not wear glasses, we are unable to confirm whether or not Canon’s claim that it is compatible with standard eyeglasses is accurate. However, in the event that you try Eye Control AF and find that you do not like it, the touch-sensitive AF point selection button has been taken wholesale from the 1D X Mark III, and it functions just as well here.

The smart controller button found on the mirrorless Canon EOS R3 camera

If you want to pick the AF points manually, you have the option of selecting from either 100% of the frame’s width or 90% of the frame’s verticality. When the camera chooses its own AF points, it can select from any place inside the frame. In total, there are 4,779 unique AF points that may be utilized (in stills mode; this drops a little to 3,969 in movie mode).

The last upgrade to the autofocus capability of the Canon EOS R7 is a marginal enhancement to the camera’s ability to operate in low light. Canon claims that the EOS R3 can focus in lighting situations as dim as -7.5 EV (imagine a nighttime scene with only a little amount of moonlight), which is an improvement above the EOS R5, which was stated as being able to focus in lighting circumstances as dim as -6EV.

It is important to keep in mind, however, that both of these statistics are derived from shooting with an f/1.2 lens at ISO100. This means that the numbers represent more of a theoretical ceiling than an actual ceiling that can be reached in practice.

In conclusion, the EOS R3 is the only camera that we have seen that provides you with a greater variety of settings for adjusting your focus. There is now very little room for error when it comes to focusing, what with the Smart Controller, touchscreen, AF joysticks, and Eye Control AF all being available.

Specs and performance

New backside-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor with 24.1 megapixels
electronic shutter and burst shooting at 30 frames per second, either in raw or JPEG format

Only continuous shooting at 12 frames per second with a mechanical shutter.

The performance of the Canon EOS R3 has been described as “blimey” in our brief assessment. However, the longer one takes a little bit of background information. The new 24.1-megapixel sensor included in the Canon EOS R3 is the most notable improvement.

In spite of initial speculation that Sony would be the company to produce it, Canon is responsible for both the design and production of this item. It is also important to note that this is Canon’s first stacked sensor.

Sony was the first company to develop’stacked’ full-frame sensors. These sensors have a layered construction that makes it possible to build more complicated electronics beneath the photosites. What is the result? Higher data read-out rates, which provide benefits such as quicker burst-shooting speeds and less “rolling shutter” in video recordings. This is most definitely the case with the Canon EOS R3 camera.

In a world where the Sony A1 is capable of capturing images at a resolution of 50 megapixels at 30 frames per second, the 24.1 megapixel resolution of the EOS R3 may seem underwhelming. But unless you cut into your images a lot on a daily basis, it should be more than adequate for the majority of photographers. The pros who have been staking their careers on the 20.1MP Canon EOS 1 DX Mark III certainly haven’t grumbled about the camera.

Top of Camera

This indicates that the Canon EOS R3 is more of a competitor to the Sony A9 II than it is to the A1, which only has 24.2 megapixels layered across its full-frame sensor. And when it comes to a few other comparisons of specifications, the EOS R3 comes out on top.

When employing the electronic shutter, it is capable of reaching continuous shooting speeds of up to 30 frames per second (fps) with autofocus and exposure control tracking, and it can sustain that speed for up to 540 JPEGs or 150 raw images (in other words, 18 seconds or five seconds of shooting respectively).

In this setting for shooting stills at 30 frames per second, it is physically impossible to take just one picture since you can’t remove your finger from the shutter button quickly enough. This means that you won’t want to use the EOS R3 at full chat in more than a handful of situations. However, when push comes to shove and you simply can’t afford to miss the shot – we’re thinking the flower chuck at a wedding, the moment the leopard springs from its cover, or the instant the sprinter crosses the finish line – the R3’s continuous mode leaves you perilously short of excuses to miss the shot.

There are some restrictions, such as the fact that you can only achieve 30 frames per second with the R3 if its shutter is set to electronic, and that rolling shutter, despite being extremely well-controlled, is not an impossibility if you really move the camera around a lot while you’re taking pictures.

If you really must have the tactile sensation and true “crack” that only a mechanical shutter can provide, you’ll have to settle with the R3’s somewhat average frame rate of 12 frames per second. There are other cameras on the market that have quicker mechanical shutters, such as the EOS-1D X Mark II and the 1D X Mark III, which both have a frame rate of 16 fps (14fps).

In addition to reaching incredible shutter speeds of 1/64000th of a second, the electronic shutter can also be synchronized with external flashes (up to 1/250th of a second), which was previously something that could only be done with mechanical shutters. Flicker detection and High-Frequency anti-flicker shooting modes have been added to Canon cameras in the same way Sony cameras have done so. These modes help identify and fix flickering interior light sources.

The incorporation of in-body image stabilization is another significant advantage as compared to the Canon 1D X Mark III, particularly when shooting handheld. You can achieve a shaking reduction of up to eight stops when you use the EOS R3 in conjunction with RF lenses that are compatible with it. This enables you to maintain the quality of the still images as well as, assuming it functions as well as it does with the Canon EOS R5, obtain pretty smooth video without the need for a gimbal.

We need to have a discussion about the battery life since all of this performance is not cheap. This includes the two beautiful screens as well as the processing horsepower that is required to keep everything moving. You can pretty much dismiss the statistics that were provided by CIPA. According to the specifications sheet, the R3 will only be able to take 620 pictures when using the EVF. This is equivalent to exactly 20.6 seconds of shooting the R3 at its fastest 30 frames per second speed.

This is not accurate; on a single charge, we were able to see a great deal more than that number of photographs. However, it is safe to say that if you are going to be shooting for an extended period of time, you should be prepared to observe the battery indicator gradually decrease in power. Because of this, it is a good idea to keep a spare LP-E19 battery on hand as a preventative measure in case the camera suddenly stops working just as the best photo of the day is about to be captured.

The rechargeable battery included within the mirrorless Canon EOS R3 camera

To our relief, and similarly to the EOS R6 and R5, Canon has not introduced a new battery system with this model. This means that if you currently possess an EOS-1D X Mark II or Mark III, you already have a battery that is compatible with this model. In point of fact, you may use those batteries with any full-height Canon body dating back as far as the EOS-1 Mark III (2007) even if you have an earlier model.

This indicates that there is a significant amount of options available in terms of new batteries, second-hand units, and third-party units. As a result, purchasing a backup battery for emergencies does not have to be the expensive shopping excursion that Canon wants you to go through for a new LP-E19.

Because the Canon EOS R3 is primarily intended for professional sports photographers, it places a significant emphasis on connection features. You get a Gigabit Ethernet connector in addition to Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi operating at 5Ghz. This allows you to fire photos off to FTP sites. Additionally, professional photographers will have the ability to use Canon’s Mobile File Transfer (MFT) software on their smartphone or tablet in order to upload photographs to distant servers.

This will work very well in conjunction with a new accessory called the Smartphone Link AD-P1, which gives you the ability to place your iPhone or Android device on a Multi-Function Shoe Adapter that is sold separately. Although most of this will be unnecessary for the typical photographer, full-time agency photographers will most certainly take pleasure in the abundant connection provided by the EOS R3.

Image Quality

  • Unbelievable quality even with very high ISOs.
  • Outstanding dynamic range, with colors that are delightfully in balance.
  • Internally captures video in resolutions of 4K/60p and 6K/60p in oversampled form.

If you already possess an EOS R5 or R6 and are looking to increase the image quality of your camera, it is safe to assume that the EOS R3 will not provide a good return on your investment. It has a full-frame stacked CMOS sensor with 24 megapixels, which is an excellent sensor by any standard. But if a revolution in low light performance and dynamic range is even somewhat imaginable (and we haven’t seen any indication of that happening yet), then this isn’t it at all.

That in no way implies that the photographs are of poor quality; on the contrary, they are outstanding. The Canon EOS R3 produces a collection of photographs that are pleasing to the eye, thanks in large part to the company’s renowned expertise in the field of color processing. It is also fantastic for taking pictures in dim light since, in comparison to the EOS R5, it has an additional stop of ISO at the high end, reaching up to 102,400.

The results of our field tests were confirmed by a set of test images (above), which demonstrated that ISOs up to 1600 are indistinguishable from one another. If you increase the sensitivity by one stop to ISO 3200, however, you will notice the tiniest amount of noise creeping into detail-free areas. If you keep going, ISO 12,800 will generate some fine grain that has the appearance of film, but the first sign of cloudier noise in your photographs won’t appear until you reach an ISO of 51,200.

However, we would argue that photographs taken at this level are definitely usable, which makes the R3 a potential world-beater when it comes to press photography, astrophotography, sports photography during terrible weather, sports photography during excellent weather, or wedding photography. It is a camera that you can use to its full potential, and you can be confident that the photographs it produces are reliable and acceptable, even at ISO settings that five years ago would have been unimaginable, if not impossible to achieve.

In the lead-up to the formal announcement of the EOS R3, Canon kept relatively quiet about the video capabilities of the camera, but these capabilities are in no way a footnote. It’s a powerful hybrid camera that can shoot raw video internally (at 6K/60p, making use of the entire width of the sensor), in addition to oversampled 4K/60p footage. This is a rare capability for a camera of this type.

The advantage of using oversampled video is that it typically has greater detail and less noise, as can be seen in the example video that we have provided here; in fact, this is absolutely the case. It is possible to observe the effect if you move the camera very fast, but owing to the new stacked sensor, the rolling shutter in the EOS R3’s video mode is very effectively controlled. This may be seen if the camera is moved very quickly.

When filming in 6K raw, you have the option of shooting in the CRM (Cinema Raw Light) format. This helps create file sizes that are more manageable while maintaining the same level of dynamic range as shooting in other formats. Color graders will also be thrilled to find support for the C-Log 3 format for flexible 10-bit files. Additionally, the overheating difficulties that plagued the Canon EOS R5 prior to the firmware upgrades are less of an issue with the EOS R3, which is a significant improvement.

This is due in part to the fact that the body of the R3 is larger, allowing for a greater spread of its components, and in part to the lower resolution of the R3’s sensor. Canon promises that you will be able to shoot for up to six hours continuously while shooting at regular frame rates and for up to one and a half hours when shooting in the high 120p mode. This is providing that you have adequate power in your camera.

The EOS R3’s video credentials are further strengthened by that new Multi-Function Shoe, which can charge attachments like the new Directional Stereo Microphone DM-E1D. Conveniently, you can record video to both the CFexpress and UHS-II slots concurrently to generate a backup.

Take a look at the Canon EOS R3 if you want a glimpse into the future of Canon’s mirrorless cameras. Although it may appear like a DSLR from a decade ago, the camera is really one of the most technologically sophisticated sports and wildlife cameras that has ever been made on the inside.

According to Canon, the EOS R3 is intended to fill the gap between the Canon EOS R5, which is the company’s more compact mirrorless all-arounder, and the Canon 1D X Mark III (its chunky flagship DSLR). In actual use, it is a hybrid of the two, and it is the mirrorless successor to the former.

However, Canon has not just repackaged its previous technology in order to create the EOS R3. It is the prototype for a plethora of cutting-edge technology, the most notable of which is a brand-new 24.1-megapixel backside-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor.

One of the most impressive sports and wildlife cameras ever created is Canon’s EOS R3, which has a potent combination of old and modern technologies. Inside of its retro-looking shell lies cutting-edge technology such as a brand-new stacked sensor, very remarkable focusing abilities, and support for recording in 6K resolution.

As a result of having a sensor with a lesser resolution, the EOS R3 has a more restricted appeal than the Sony A1 and the Nikon Z9, although the A1 does have certain advantages over it, such as its electronic viewfinder (EVF). But the EOS R3 is the only camera that successfully blends the charms of classic DSLRs with the next-generation technology of mirrorless cameras.
