Canon's next EOS R model with an APS-C imaging sensor might not be far away,…
There is no doubt the Canon EOS R3 is going to be announced soon. We just don’t know when. In the meantime the R3 showed up at a certification authority.
The Canon EOS R3 has been registered with wireless certification authority Taiwan NCC. According to Nokishita there are more than one moniker for the EOS R3 since Canon cameras with a 5GHz WiFi module can have up to five different operating frequencies. So, besides the moniker DS126858, also DS126835 and DS126856 (registered with other certification authorities) are likely all pointing to the EOS R3.
The resolution of the upcoming EOS R3 seems to be sure now: it’s 24MP. 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
