If you've been looking for a camera that can capture moving subjects in action at the speed of life, look no further: the Canon EOS R3 is a professional full-frame mirrorless camera designed for speed, sensitivity, and reliability. The Canon EOS R3 could be the camera you've been looking for to capture the action on the sidelines or trackside at a sporting event, as well as wildlife and nature, music, and reportage.

The Canon EOS R3 bridges the gap between professionals wanting a high speed, high sensitivity, and high-reliability mirrorless solution and amateur photographers looking for professional capabilities not found in Canon 5-Series cameras. The EOS R3 is intended for professional sports, news, and action photographers that need high-quality still and moving photos of fast-moving subjects.

Live at Speed

The Canon EOS R3 is designed to capture fast-moving objects and is built to meet the exacting demands of professional photographers, with ultra-responsiveness, reliability, high sensitivity, and durability.

Shoot at explosive 30fps speed

At the heart of the Canon EOS R3 lies a brand-new 24.1MP back-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor, working in concert with the Canon world-class DIGIC X image processor. Together, they deliver the fast readout and processing required for RAW files to be captured at 30fps, with full AF/AE tracking¹.

Mastering movement

Taking object-tracking capabilities to new heights, the Canon EOS R3 includes the people and animal AF tracking modes (including birds) found in the EOS R5, as well as car and motorcycle tracking – ideal for motorsports shooters.

See. React. Respond

The EOS R3 uses Canon's exclusive Eye Control AF technology which focuses on what you're looking at. This unrivalled AF control enables the camera to react as quickly as you do – responding quickly to ever-changing scenes.

Super stable shooting

Image Stabilizer (IS) technology provides up to 8-stops of camera shake reduction. The camera's In-Body IS works in conjunction with the Optical IS built into many RF lenses, allowing you to shoot handheld in low light or at slower shutter speeds.

Made for movies

The EOS R3 internally records oversampled 4K or RAW video footage to a CFexpress card with Canon Log for increased dynamic range and colour grading options. Importantly, videographers have access to the same object recognition that still photographers have.
