The Canon EOS R3 is likely in use at the Olympics as we speak, and we can expect it to be fully announced at some point later this year. While Canon has dropped a few impressive specs about the camera (like a 30 fps continuous burst rate and eye-controlled autofocus), one important specification has been noticeably absent: sensor resolution.
Canon Rumors is reporting that multiple sources have put the resolution of the EOS R3 somewhere around 24 megapixels. While previous rumors have put the resolution around 30 megapixels or as high as the EOS R5's 45 megapixels, it is unsurprising to hear that the resolution may be lower. At 30 fps, the camera is pushing a ton of data, and given its design that is clearly intended for work like sports and photojournalism, professionals using it will likely prefer a more manageable resolution, especially when images need to be disseminated quickly. So far, Canon has confirmed other features like an integrated grip similar to a 1 series body, a newly developed stacked CMOS sensor with a back-illuminated design for reduced rolling shutter, rugged weather-sealing, internal raw video, eight stops of image stabilization when in-lens and in-body stabilization work together, and more. It looks like there is a lot to look forward to in the EOS R3!
