As the details of Canon’s next mirrorless DSLR become clearer, the camera was spotted in the field test at the G7 summit.
Details on Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera EOS R3 are slowly coming in. Recently, a Canon rep tweeted a picture of the R3 issued in G7 summit. Have more and more physical copies of this camera turned up in the wild for field tests and review, which suggests release is getting closer and closer. Since the camera is being used at such a top-class event, I can imagine that more official press releases and information will follow soon.
The camera, dubbed the autofocus powerhouse, has in-lens and IBIS stabilization functions that can add up to 8 additional stops of light capture in low-light conditions. Rumor has it that there will now be a 30MP sensor.
This would be a significant improvement over their current flagship full frame DSLR, the EOS-1DX Mark IIIwho touts a 20 megapixel sensor. Likewise, compared to the EOS-R5 shooting at a staggering 45 MP, this camera seems in many ways to be a middle step between the two. It has an almost identical form factor as the 1DX MKIII and has more video and resolution options like the EOSR5 (although I’m most excited about the supposed internal RAW 4K recording).
I will be very curious to see what details they get, and especially where the camera ends up in terms of price (last rumored at about $ 6,000). I’m not sure how exactly that is, but based on that it seems to be correct R5/ 1DX midpoint speculation.
Canon has one official page about the camera now with some details.
