Have you ever wonder what’s the best full frame camera when it comes to events and concerts?
Canon EOS R3 is an exceptional flagship mirrorless camera that the company committed to provide professional photographers and videographers with cutting-edge technology.
If you’re into recording videos and want to capture moments, EOS R3 is one of the best product by Canon which has superb autofocus performance, high-speed continuous shooting, outstanding image quality, and robust video capabilities.
EOS R3’s overall performance, build quality, and innovative features such as 24.1MP full-frame stacked CMOS sensor and offers a standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-102,400 which was expandable to ISO 50-204,800.
I was stunned when it has top shutter speed of 1/64,000sec, and the ability to combine flash with the silent electronic shutter at a sync speed of 1/180sec.
If you’re using EOS R3 for events and sports, it also perform high-speed continuous shooting at up to 30 fps with the electronic shutter. For mechanical shutter, it can be reach up to 12 fps.
Video taken using EOS R3
What I like about EOS R3: it has Eye Control AF which allow you to switch quickly to autofocus by using eye movement when looking through the viewfinder. It also has dual card slot that supports one SD card and one CFexpress card which expands the storage capacity.
