After seeing these specifications along with SD and CFExpress cards I am on the fence if I should buy R3 or not. I am still waiting for the official announcements to learn more, but at this stage I would like some insights into the following:
1) What exactly does Canon mean that the DPAF has enhance tracking for people and animals? Is the tracking significantly better than the R5. Is the enhancement quad-pixel AF?
2) Can the electronic shutter be used at speeds other than 30 fps like 10 fps or 20 fps? Many times I have a need for 10 fps and silent shutter and just do not need 30 fps.
3) Lastly, what is the resolution of the sensor? I a still hoping for 30 MP, but my gut is saying it may not be more than 24 MP.
Very good questions John,
I have been frustrated by the forced 20 frames on electronic shutter also. As an example, while shooting in the courthouse, I only need single frame, but want the silent!
With the R5 I have NEVER hit buffer shooting RAW to CFExpress, but when shooting backup jpegs to the SD I have hit buffer many times.
This body should have the option for dual CFexpress cards.
While shooting NHL playoff action, using mechanical shutter, not electronic, I have turned the resolution down for the backup jpegs to the SD card to reduce buffer issues!
