Outpace. Outperform

The EOS R3 is built to withstand the demands of day-to-day professional use, and whatever life throws at you.
From dust storm to downpour, a tough, magnesium-alloy body is dust-and-water sealed to the same level as our legendary EOS-1D series cameras. Have the confidence to keep shooting whatever the conditions throw at you.

The EOS R3 is a professional thoroughbred. It’s shape and form are informed by our EOS-1DX series cameras, but is smaller and lighter, incorporating the design principles of the mirrorless EOS R system for superb handling.

The camera offers a choice of controls, with both a multi-controller and smart controller falling instinctively within reach of your thumb. Three customisable dials on the camera body, plus a Lens Control ring on each RF mount lens, allow shutter speed, aperture, ISO and exposure compensation to be adjusted with the camera at your eye.

The EOS R3 is also equipped with a four-million-dot high-resolution Vari-Angle screen, that is clear and brilliant, even in bright conditions. It lets you compose easily from creative perspectives. Dual card slots allow image files and video footage to be written to widely available SD cards (with support for UHS-II) or super-fast, next-generation CFexpress media.
