The Canon EOS R3 Sensor Resolution Gets Another Confirmation

Canon Eos R3

We already knew with a reasonable certainty that the Canon EOS R3 imaging sensor would have a resolution of 24MP. It was learned from EXIF data of photos taken at the Tokyo Olympics.

Photos posted to a forum, and the embedded EXIF data, aren’t really a proof for anything. DPReview must have thought. So they spoke “with a photo editor who manages images captured by photographers at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games“. This photo editor confirmed the Canon EOS R3 has a 24MP imaging sensor. This should remove any suspicion the originally leaked EXIF data could have been faked.

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
  • AF down to -7.0 EV
  • 8 Stops Coordinated Control IS with Optical IS and In-Body IS
  • 4K Canon Log3​
  • Oversampling 4K
  • Internal RAW video
  • Inclusion of cars and motorbikes in AF tracking technology
  • RAW internal movie recording
  • Speedlite shooting with electronic shutter
  • The same weather sealing as the EOS-1D series
  • LP-E19 Battery
  • Dual card slot SD & CFExpress

Skateboarder and photographer Atiba Jefferson, also a Canon Explorer of Light, is one of those who are lucky enough to have the chance to play around with the Canon EOS R3. He shared a sequence show with 30fps on his Instagram. And no, it’s not a video. It’s a 30fps burst. Amazing.

 

Not bad, eh? This is going to be a killer camera that will annihilate all the competitors.

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.
