Super Stable Shooting

The EOS R3 has up to 8-stops of protection against camera shake with Image Stabilizer (IS)technology, which works together with the Optical IS built into many RF lenses, allowing photographers to shoot handheld in dim light or while using longer shutter speeds.


5.76MP EVF

The responsive electronic viewfinder (EVF) is ideal for blackout free burst shooting and easy subject tracking with fast refresh rate.


4.15 million dot 3.2” Vari-angle LCD

Enjoy the option to shoot from high and low angles, or shoot in portrait orientation with the variable-angle LCD monitor.


DIGIC X Image Processor

The EOS R3 reaches maximum shooting speeds with the DIGIC X’s high-speed processing.


Optical Smart Controller

Achieve faster and more intuitive selection of autofocus points using the smart controller optical device, which is built into the AF on button.


Multi Controller (AKA AF Joystick)

Canon’s EOS R3 features a multi controller that enables familiar, quick and intuitive selection and adjustment of the AF frame.


Vertical shooting controls

Shooting in portrait orientation with EOS R3 is ergonomic and instinctive with an integrated vertical grip with complete 2nd set of controls


Magnesium Alloy Body

The EOS R3’s tough body is sealed to the same level as Canon’s EOS 1D series, ensuring that it can withstand the rigours of professional use.


LP-E19 Battery

Powered by the same high-capacity LP-E19 battery as you’ll find in the EOS-1D X Mark III for the ability to share between models.
