The Canon EOS R3 [1] [2] is a 24 megapixel full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera launched by Canon officially announced by Canon on 14 September 2021 alongside two RF mount lenses. The camera is available as body only with a MSRP of US$5,999.00.

The camera marks the return of eye-controlled autofocus, a feature not seen in a Canon camera since the Canon EOS-3 in 1998.

Even though the camera was not officially released to the public, it was already used at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan. [3]

The EOS R3 won Camera Grand Prix 2022 Editors Choice Technology Award. [4]

In July 2022, EOS R3 firmware update 1.2.0, enabled this camera to shoot up to 50 frames at a custom high-speed continuous mode rate of 195 frames per second with full resolution in JPEG, HEIF or RAW format. [5] [6]
