Some More Bits About The Canon EOS R3 Specifications (45MP, Quad-Pixel AF)

Canon Eos R3 Specifications
The upcoming Canon EOS R3

We already got a few hints about the Canon EOS R3 specifications. Now another source confirmed some of the information we got.

Just to remind you that Canon announced the development of the Canon EOS R3 but said very little about its specifications. Last time we got this list:

  • 45MP image sensor
  • 60 fps full pixel quad-core auto-focus
  • 20 fps mechanical shutter
  • 30 fps electronic shutter
  • New white balance system
  • 8K / 30p RAW shooting

The new suggestion we got confirms the 45MP sensor. The source also added that the EOS R3 will have a pixel-shift feature on board (it was already rumored, and there is also a patent). Pixel-shift would allow to have a higher resolution than the native sensor resolution.

The second feature we got confirmed is Quad-Pixel Autofocus. If you look at the list we got last week, you see “60 fps full pixel quad-core auto-focus”. We think it got somewhat lost in translation: it refers to Quad-Pixel Autofocus, a feature already rumored to come to future EOS R cameras. Several patents have been spotted so far.

So, the new updated Canon EOS R3 specification list:

  • 45MP image sensor with pixel-shift
  • Quad-Pixel Autofocus
  • 60 fps with full Quad-Pixel Auto-focus
  • 20 fps mechanical shutter
  • 30 fps electronic shutter
  • New white balance system
  • 8K / 30p RAW shooting

I am still not entirely sold on the 45MP. Seems a bit high of a resolution for a sports camera. Some ideas?

Stay tuned, stay safe.

P:S:: you can get notified when the Canon EOS R3 will be available for preorder.
