People have included their guesses for the R3 pricing in the thread below. It covers quite a big range...Any guesstimates as to price? Has to be closer to the R5 than to the 1DX if there is still a "R1DX" coming....
It's not meant to be a competitor to the A1. If it outperforms the Sony flagship product and it's not even considered to be Canon's flagship model, then that says everything you need to knowYes, I think that I've seen enough details. Now I need to see how it performs. How well does it track? Does it keep up with the A1 in AF? How strong is the AA filter? How good is high-ISO/low-light performance?
Hopefully It will be officially announced and pre-release reviews get out in the wild.
I love the people who are complaining about the price already before we know it.People have included their guesses for the R3 pricing in the thread below. It covers quite a big range...
Greetings! We have the information from Canon that the R3 pricing will undercut the competition. From what we know, though, the specs of the R3 don't quite line up with any competition we know about anyway. It is rumored to have more megapixels and FPS than the 1DXiii and the Sony A9. But it is...www.canonrumors.com
How do you know what Canon intends for the R3? Rarely do companies specifically identify their competition. However, the evidence of competition is clear. The cameras absolutely are in the same class. Given the similar specs--sports/action cameras with stacked sensors, 30fps burst rates, and blazing fast AF tracking differing significantly only in body style and resolution--the cameras are undoubtedly competitors. Moreover, until Canon releases a model superior to the R3--my money is on late 2022 at the earliest and more likely late 2023 or 2024--the R3 will be Canon's flagship.It's not meant to be a competitor to the A1.

Iris scanning for eye control is the interesting part, didnt know about that. If Canon really is going to deploy Iris scanning for Eye tracking then it might really be more accurate.The video is just a summary of the known specs and commentary on what McKinnon thinks about them. No new information, he doesn't even have the camera, so 'interesting' only if you care about McKinnon.
I didn't mean it in any critical way, I just dislike it when people post a video without going into detail on why it is or isn't a waste of time to watch it. So having watched it myself, I just wanted to save those not interested in McKinnon the time.You have just described most of his videos.
To be fair, a lot of people do seem to care about him.
That how it has been described in the patents on the technology at least. According to the patents, Canon actually keeps a record of the different users of a camera and saves their settings and tracking preferences on a per person basis. Using the iris scan to identify who uses the camera. But if that is just patent talk or actually implemented in the R3 is unknown as far as I'm aware.Iris scanning for eye control is the interesting part, didnt know about that.

Not necessarily. They could have filed a subsequent patent application on it that hasn't published yet (so we don't yet know about it), but gives them a priority date to protect their IP.They kind of have to do what is in their patent or someone else could patent what they are actually doing.
