Autofocus Is In The Eye Of The Beholder: Canon EOS R3 Eye Control AF Magic

Eye Control Af

You likely know that the Canon EOS R3 has eye control AF. Ever wondered how it looks and feels? Here you are.

The short 20 seconds video by CanonUSA gives a rather good idea about how eye control AF works. The Canon EOS R3 eye control AF is controlled by the user simply looking through the electronic viewfinder at the subject they want to focus on. You can see how the focus points follow the eye of the photographer. One could say: the autofocus is in the eye oft the beholder.
