Canon EOS R3 review | Space

    We’ve been using the Canon EOS R3 on a daily basis since late December 2021. It’s a high-quality hybrid mirrorless camera, which means it produces professional-quality photos and videos. We mainly used this camera for stills shooting however the R3’s video capabilities are first-class and the autofocus system far exceeds our initial expectations. Eye-controlled autofocus is a game-changer, especially for action shots of people, sports, and wildlife photography.

    The Canon R3 comes with a hefty price tag, so unless you have the cash to splurge, you might want to consider an alternative from our best mirrorless camera guide. Not sure if you want a mirrorless camera or a DSLR? We’ve put you through a guide to the best cameras for photos and video, and to help you choose between the two, there’s even the age-old debate between DSLR vs Mirrorless cameras for Astrophotography. In the meantime, though, read on to find out what we think about the Canon EOS R3.

    R3 feels very good in the hand. Its built-in horizontal and vertical grips with mirrored controls mean that switching between portrait and landscape shots is a breeze. The design allows for the use of a high-capacity rechargeable Li-ion battery (LP-E19) and the buttons and dials on the back, top, and front of the camera are easily accessible – most of them are customizable. The main buttons can be backlit for use at night.
