What to expect from the Canon EOS R3
As the top dog in Canon's mirrorless range, the EOS R3 will be a best-of-best camera in every regard.
Although the brand says it's not designed to replace the EOS 1D X Mark III DSLR camera, if you're backing mirrorless then it's an obvious alternative. In terms of specification there are already some headliners announced: 30 frames per second continuous shooting; next-level subject tracking; in-camera stabilisation; 4K movie capture; LAN & Wi-Fi connectivity. Canon hasn't revealed everything just yet, though, with no confirmation of the sensor resolution - all we know is that it will be a full-frame sensor.
So there's plenty of details to come yet and make the reveal all the more exciting.
