Canon Announces EOS R3 Pro

Canon recently announced the development of their newest flagship EOS R3 Pro mirrorless camera. The EOS R3 Pro is part of their increasing commitment to meeting the needs of professional image and content creators around the world. Canon states that the EOS R3 Pro will be an addition to their current EOS R-series lineup and will be positioned right in between the EOS R5 and the EOS 1D-X Mark III.

Canon claims that the EOS R3 Pro will be the first camera to utilize a 35mm full-frame back-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor, which is their own proprietary technology and will allow for high-speed readout and minimize the negative effects of “rolling-shutter” during operation. The EOS R3 Pro also will be able to shoot a speedy 30 frames per second with AF/AE tracking. Canon’s “award-winning” autofocus will utilize their Deep Learning Technology and feature their Eye Control autofocus, both of which will allow for faster and more accurate subject tracking. In terms of the design, it will resemble the robust body of the EOS-1D X Mark III with an integrated vertical grip and feature dust and water resistance to protect against the elements.

Along with the EOS R3 Pro, Canon announced more RF lenses to be released. Specifically two new super-telephoto lenses the RF 400mm F2.8 L IS USM and the RF 600mm F4 L IS USM, as well as the new RF 100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM.

Although Canon hasn’t released too many details about the camera’s specifications and release date, we’re sure it will be a great addition to Canon’s mirrorless lineup and will directly compete with similar offerings from their rivals such as Nikon’s Z9 and Sony’s A1.
