Canon EOS R3 Electronic Viefinder Without Lag And Blackout?

Canon Eos R3 Specifications
The upcoming Canon EOS R3

The announcement, or better: the release, of the Canon EOS R3 is getting closer (September 2021). A new bit of information seems to have made it from the Olympics to ours and others inboxes.

The electronic viewfinder (EVF) on the Canon EOS R3 is said to be free of lag and not to have the short “blackout”. A minor annoyance, to be honest. Still something that can make the difference for a professional sport photographer. We think this small bit of information has to come from one of the many photographers that had the chance to use the EOS R3 at the Tokyo Olympics.

The resolution of the upcoming Canon EOS R3 is no longer a mystery. It’s 24MP, and it got more than one confirmation. Oh, and have a look how impressing the 30fps of the R3 are. We expect the announcement in Fall 2021, likely in September. Here is what we know about the EOS R3 so far:

  • 24MP backside illuminated image sensor
  • Multi-Controller & Smart Controller
  • Vari-Angle Touch Screen
  • NEW accessory shoe
  • Wifi 5GHz
  • High speed 30fps electronic shutter with AF/AE tracking + RAW shooting at this speed
