Canon EOS R3 Shows Up At Certification Authority (again)

Canon Eos R3 Specifications

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.

Die-hard Rumor About Canon EOS R With APS-C Sensor Gets New Push

Eos R With Aps-c

It’s years now hat this rumor comes up at regular intervals. Canon making an EOS R with APS-C sensor.

It seems the rumor about Canon allegedly working on a camera with RF mount and an APS-C sensor has now been downgraded to Canon “actively been doing market research” to learn if such a camera makes any sense. We stated since this rumor came up: it does not. Neither is the future of the EOS M system uncertain or unknown. It’s a best selling APS-C mirrorless camera line-up.

The rumor about a camera with RF mount and APS-C has always had a home in the interweb of rumor mills. It’s years old, it started a few weeks after the release of the first Canon EOS R, and has always been utterly unrealistic. At least to us. The rumor got a climax in June 2021 when the suggestion of not less than three EOS R cameras with APS-C sensor came up. It appears now it is like we are “going to see one someday” in the best of cases.

There is the question of the successor of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Canon’s pro-oriented APS-C DSLR. A rumor we got suggests Canon does not think there are enough 7D2 shooters to justify a replacement. The EOS R system appears to be the cure for everything.

Next episode to follow soon….

Canon Eos R3 Price

We know plenty about the upcoming Canon EOS R3, with the notable exception of price, announcement date, and imaging sensor resolution. A mainstream media article backs our rumor about a 45MP sensor.

Discussing the rumored specifications of the Nikon Z9, Techradar reports an allegedly solid rumor suggesting the Nikon Z9 might have a 45MP imaging sensor doing up to 30fps. Techradar writes:

Canon hasn’t yet officially confirmed the resolution of the Canon EOS R3, its equivalent mirrorless camera for pro sports photographers, but rumors have strongly suggested that it’ll also be a 45MP camera. We do already officially know that R3 will be able to shoot 30fps bursts and oversampled 4K video.

Other sources have suggested a 30MP sensor is going to be featured on the EOS R3. Time will tell.

Latest intel suggests an EOS R3 announcement in Fall is likely. Expect the EOS R3 to get eventually announced in September 2021.
