Superior Image Quality
Capture your world with all the crisp details. The EOS R3 is equipped with a new approximately 24.1-megapixel back-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor combined with DIGIC X image processor for the first time, allowing for high-speed readout and high image quality with low noise.
Powerful In-Body Image Stabilisation
Equipped with 5-axis in-body image stabilisation (IS), the EOS R3 suppresses blurriness caused by camera shake, increasing the possibilities for handheld shooting, low-light shooting, and long exposure shooting.
When combined with the optical image stabilizer of compatible RF lenses, up to 8 stops of image stabilisation can be achieved via Coordinated Control IS.
High ISO Sensitivity
With a wide normal ISO speed range of 100 to 102,400 (expandable to L: 50 and H: 204,800), the EOS R3 is capable of clean low-noise images even in low-light situations.
Capture realistic still images close to the visual perception of a human eye. Images rendered in 10-bit HDR PQ have a higher dynamic range with beautiful precise gradations especially in highlights areas.
Achieve greater gradation control in your photos by using HDR PQ in combination with Auto Lighting Optimizer and Highlight Tone Priority.
HDR Composite Shooting
When dealing with high-contrast scenes, HDR Mode allows you to capture a 3-shot HDR composite in as fast as 0.02 seconds with exposure compensation in JPEG or HEIF format.
Besides offering richer gradations than conventional 1-shot HDR shooting, this high-speed capture helps to reduce movement between frames, making HDR handheld shooting possible.
High Speed, High Precision
Capture explosive action in a blink of an eye.
The EOS R3 is supercharged with new and upgraded autofocusing technology engineered to take high-speed action photography to new heights. With smarter subject detection and more precise autofocusing, photographers can leave focusing and tracking to the camera, and concentrate on composition and clicking the shutter at the opportune moment.
Up to 30 FPS High-Speed Continuous Shooting
Perform high-speed continuous shooting at up to 30 fps with the electronic shutter (or up to 12 fps with mechanical shutter).
With up to 60 fps calculation and tracking during continuous shooting with the electronic shutter, tracking accuracy is significantly enhanced. This is especially useful for fast-moving subjects that change direction and speed suddenly.
High-speed readout of the sensor allows for uninterrupted blackout-free continuous shooting using the electronic shutter, so you do not lose sight of your subject during fast-paced action sequences. Rolling shutter distortion is also significantly reduced.
Flash Photography for Continuous Shooting Supported
For the first time ever in the EOS line-up, the EOS R3 supports flash photography with metering and tracking in all shutter modes including electronic shutter. This means that flash photography is also possible with blackout-free continuous shooting.
Corner-to-Corner AF coverage
Powered by Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, the EOS R3 offers extensive autofocus coverage at up to 100% x 100% * of the entire image area and high-density AF with up to 1,053 frame zones, making precise focusing and tracking of subjects possible even when they move to the edge of the frame.
*AF area coverage is dependent on the lens used
Eye Control AF
Change your point of focus easily and quickly by moving your eye!
The EOS R3 is the first EOS Digital camera to feature Eye Control AF, which allows for quick switching of autofocus by using eye movement when looking through the viewfinder.
Accurate Low-Light AF
Don’t lose sight of your subject even in the dark.
With a low luminance AF limit of up to EV-7.5, the EOS R3 is able to perform stable Servo AF under challenging lighting conditions, such as a dark moonless night.
Intelligent Tracking and Recognition
A camera that sees and understands your world. With a new, evolved EOS iTR (Intelligent Tracking & Recognition) AF X using deep learning technology, subject detection of the EOS R3 is faster and smarter than ever.
New Vehicle Priority AF
This revolutionary new breakthrough in AF technology now allows for detection and recognition of fast-moving automobiles and motorcycles in motorsports. The EOS R3 is capable of overall detection of the vehicle and also more specific focus of the driver’s helmet using spot detection.
Enhanced Eye Detection AF Performance
Subject detection precision has also been enhanced for humans.
Eye Detection AF is possible even when the subject’s face is obscured by shadow, hair, make-up or a face mask. Head detection is also possible for athletes wearing goggles or face masks during winter sports.
Animal Detection AF
First introduced in the EOS R5, Animal Detection AF is also available on the EOS R3, allowing for detection and tracking of the body, face or eye of dogs, cats and birds.
Seamless Moviemaking Magic

The EOS R3 offers high video image quality up to 6K and excellent focus control within one camera -- perfect for independent filmmakers and small production crew. Plus, you get convenient integration with Canon’s professional Cinema EOS system for a seamless post-production workflow.
6K 60p RAW
Record in-camera 6K 60p RAW video footage for greater versatility in post-production. The rich 12-bit image data produces richer colours while the high pixel count (6000 x 3164) offers flexibility in cropping and angle correction.
Development is possible with Digital Photo Professional or Cinema RAW Development. A lower bitrate RAW (Light) file format is also available for a smaller file size to reduce file transfer time.
4K High Frame Rate Video
Capture action in slow motion in uncropped 4K UHD/DCI or Full HD using high frame rate (120 fps/100 fps).
Movie Servo AF and subject tracking is available for 4K high frame rate videos and all other video modes.
4K 60p with 6K Oversampling
The EOS R3 records uncropped 4K UHD/DCI movies processed from rich 6K RGB data for higher image quality with less moiré and minimal colour distortion and noise.
HDR PQ Movies
Record 4:2:2 10-bit HDR PQ movies with higher brightness, wider tonal range and wider colour gamut for playback on HDR-compatible screens.
As minimal colour grading is necessary, time is saved on post-processing, making this especially useful for demanding environments such as news reporting.
Coordinated Control IS and Movie Digital IS
In-Body IS in the EOS R3 helps to minimise camera movement shake by up to 5.5 stops during video recording. When paired with a compatible lens equipped with optical IS, the image stabilisation effect is increased to up to 8 stops.
Movie Digital IS also works in conjunction with Coordinated Control IS to give you added stability in your video footages.
