Comments: 24, on the topic: Announcement: Canon EOS R3

  • Alexander

    It's something like: wait six months or a year and we might, if we can, can the Sony A1 finish the year?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      I guess this is not the answer to the Sony a1, but to the Nikon Z9.

      • Alexander

        By the way, when I wrote my comment about Canon and Sony I completely forgot that Nikon also had an “announcement announcement”. I agree - in terms of ideology and positioning, Canon R3 is a competitor to Nikon Z9.

    • Artem

      Canon doesn't need to catch up with Sony A1. Oscillations of A1 ledge to move before the release of R5. R1 will not be interesting. R3 is a solution for mirrorless cameras for tasks such as the 1Dx series and other similar ones, not suitable in the general world. I want a lot of perevagi.
      PS I know about Pentax. I didn’t look at it and didn’t talk about pre-emption.

      • Victor

        Who told you that a1 is inferior to p5?

        The indicators for a1 are either identical or superior to those in the canon.

      • Alexander

        Can you tell us more about where the Canon r5 is superior to the Sony A1? Maybe a sensor without backlighting and its own memory is superior? Burst speed? Flash sync speed 1/200 vs 1/400? The number of shots per charge - 320 versus 530? What specs to look at to see the superiority of the Canon R5 over the Sony A1?

        • Maksim

          At the price.

          • Alexander

            Then Canon RP smashes the Canon R5 on its head. The price is cheaper.

  • Rodion

    In the world of bzk, kenon and nikon have changed places: Now kenon has the longest, do not understand why the focal length.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Most importantly, Canon this year celebrated 18 years of dominance in the interchangeable lens photography market.

  • koba

    It can be seen that there will be a serious camera, and the price will be set in the region of $ 6500, in order to then set $ 1 on the R9999. These cameras are sold in tiny editions, so those who want or have to buy it will buy it anyway. Further, these devices will break down immediately after the expiration of the warranty period (a self-destructive counter will be built in it), so there will be even fewer offers on the top-end cameras on the market, that is, ordinary users will never be able to get them, as I have done so far and others like me. Other pleasant surprises can be foreseen thanks to the efforts of marketers in Japanese companies.

    • Egor

      One might think in other spheres it is somehow arranged differently.

    • Novel

      Hopefully the camera will explode in your hands when the counter counts down to 0?

    • Not a bot

      Oooh ... evil marketers !!!! conspirators !!! y !!! cunning engineers and owners of ship factories, not like the Zenith Soviet /, this is an eternal thing that does not become obsolete and does not break, of course, most likely a marriage from the factory, but if you are lucky, it does not break, not like now….

    • Dmitry Kostin

      Koba, I'll give you a price tag for the D3X.
      Almost 900 thousand yen.
      A mythical chamber in its day.
      But now you can buy it and the resource from it is about the same as that of the D3s or higher (due to the peculiarities of shooting with this camera).

    • Zheka

      I can't understand why a simple lover who takes pictures of cats needs such a cool camera his family trees forest streets and streets

  • Ivan Shikhalev

    But it is interesting: where did the number 3 come from, why not 1? Because of Sony, you decided not to release a unit and still refine it?

    • Anton

      Apparently because the gaze autofocus control was on the eos 3 / 30v

    • Arkady Shapoval

      due to the fact that they position p3 below 1dx mark 3, there will also be one. Previously, there were also two lines of units 1ds, 1d. Now p3 and p1 will probably be.

      • Ivan Shikhalev

        Well, I'm wondering why they are positioning it lower.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          they are afraid that not everything has been tested in it, the same electronic shutter, etc.

    • Dmitry Kostin

      Because there was a film 3.
      It presented a new 45-point AF module, which with improvements migrated to the expensive EOS-1V and further to digital Units.
      The EOS-1N (HS / RS) had a 5-point AF module that came with the EOS 5.
      Canon only had 3 films - there was no CZK.
      And now Canon has decided to revive this model again, apparently there is a reason.

  • Mr. Boggy

    They are trying to transplant everyone to the BZK, it has become a bummer for them to make a mirror, people walk with smartphones, there are not so many pros, and those wedding favors themselves will switch to p5 and p. I'm generally purple, the secondary is full of units and dimes of all mirror generations, and the optics of the native and third-party ef ocean is simple. Thanks to the progress, the amateur will not be lost!

  • Joe

    The text contains incorrect information about the price “about 7000 dollars”, in addition, from the number “7000” for some reason an irrelevant hyperlink to the Nikon D7000 review was made.
    The R3 is currently available for pre-order for $ 5,999.
