Maybe this will be a more photo oriented R flagship - high res 30mp+, AF improved from R5 with QPAF and higher shutter speeds, but less focus on video. Saving the R1 to be a flagship sports, action and video beast. I personally never shoot video and would love an R from canon focused on photography. The body looks awesome with the built-in grip.  Throw in some eye-controlled AF from the EOS Elan 7 days

I think hat the R6 is a 6D equivalence. The 6D in mirrorless is more the RP. So Canon has already messed up the naming - or Canon re-invented it.

The R3 indicates:

It's above the R5, at least regarding a certain criterium.

There is still an R1 position open.

I hope it's not the high MP camera I'm waiting for. I have no use for this kind of body, for me smaller is better.

I think it's a beefed up R5. Same sensor, no overheating, even higher frame rates, better EVF, better LCD, better sealing, more robust body (you don't need a hammer anymore to get a nail into a wall, take your R3), better connectivity, improved AF (faster calculations).

A R5s is already rumored for the end of 2021, with more video capabilities than the original R5, and no overheating (fan).

An highres camera with a built-in grip, I don't think it's likely, why would they do that ?

Built-in grip cameras are for heavy duty photography, and it's not the case for studio and landscape photography, where a classical shaped camera is OK.

If Canon has to launch their rumored global shutter and QuadPixelAF in a super fast camera, it's time to do it with a sport camera like an R3 ! The counterparty is that a global shutter and QuadPixelAF could only be 20 or 21Mpix...

A couple of friends who do lots of studio work with models seem to really like the built in grip and definitely like the 100+ MP sort of resolution.  I could totally see the R3 being a modern 1ds and it totally fits the timeline Canon has hinted at.  My guess is that it won’t have the sort of frame rate that the action shooters want and we will see a ~50MP R1 not too long after the R3.

Fascinating to think of what this could be.  Canon surprised everyone by going to the R3 designation and not the R1, leaving room of course for an R1 in the future.

One point to keep in mind that may or may not be a factor: we will have 3 of the most important sporting events in the world in a span of about 18 months: the Summer Olympics this year, and then the Winter Olympics and World Cup in 2022.

It would not be unusual for Canon to want to make a big impression at those events.

I think that there will eventually be both a R3 and R1.  I don't necessarily think these correlate to older SLR cameras.

Here's my guess (we're all guessing - right?).  2 bodies.  Virtually identical except the sensor.  One is a new high res sensor and the other uses something similar to the 20MP sensor in the 1Dx/R6.  One is for high res (will be farily quick too) and the other for ultimate speed.  Both will be 'Pro' level bodies, but aimed at different uses.

R3 maybe = R7?

I'm not buying this rumor. Upon close inspection of the high res render, its a little sloppy in the details and that leads me to believe its not a Canon render or photo. Straight line aliasing gives that away along with what appears to be manipulated edges along the badge. The grip surface is also a big departure from Canon's lines for no apparent reason.

IDK, its possible Canon has a real R3 up its sleeves, but I doubt it would be a full sized portrait grip integrated body as Canon has been stingy offering that to any camera not among the top tier.

They only way I can make sense of the rumor in my head is if the body is the rumored R7. A flagship crop body. That would fit the nomenclature of the R3 moniker and possibly explain the odd switch to a full integrated grip. It also allows them to price it up stream and protects the sales of the R1 all while giving a pricing option that is an little more palatable.

IDK... I just don't have a lot of faith in it being real.

Perhaps the R3 will be Canon's $6,000 sports camera, and the R1 will be Canon's $10,000 sports camera.

Additionally

Additionally, I don't see a battery release or a forward facing mic. Again... I'm really hesitant to believe this one.

Don't forget Euro 2020 (held in 2021), and the Ashes 2021/2.

As the length of a thread approaches 150, the probability that someone will make the obvious "it's not the camera, it's the photographer" remark approaches 1.

I now we know why they never made a 3D (obviously), they were waiting for the R series to be born...LOL. Will there be a R2 (D2)?

you’re going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view. The truth is often what we make of it; you heard what you wanted to hear, believed what you wanted to believe...Be mindful of your thoughts,  they betray you.

Or maybe that will be the R1 and this is just an extra tough do it all R5 or R6 in battle tank body and more processing power for

extra speed.

-

There could be prototypes of these in use at this year’s Summer games. Canon could even ship the first copies in July and still have some in the hands of pro agencies

And there will be limited attendance anyway.

But there are enough high profile sporting events coming up to merit a new pro sports body. And these events will garner even more attention as the world come out of the pandemic.

LOL, I think he got April Fooled on this one. It just doesn't square for me. Same with any of the new rumors, minus the RF 100 macro. We'll see. I KNOW a R1-type body is in the wild being tested from some NDA talk (or better yet NDA squashed conversations), but this render just doesn't fit, so we'll have to see what real and what's not.

EVF lag can't be skipped, right now

But with a mirrorless setup you can skip shutter lag, funnily enough. Perhaps Canon will also bring pre-buffer shooting to the big table finally after all these years.

Surprising! I thought it would be R1

Yes, very. Hmmm will there be an even higher level R1 someday?

I’m thinking this is the R5s, high MP camera that has been rumored.

It looks like maybe the 1ds reborn.

I hope your right, if this is 100mp sign me up for at least 1 probably 2

im sick of small camera bodies with mirrorless, I want the mirrorless tech not a small system.

low res 20mpixel 1 series camera don’t interest me anymore, great for sports not great for wildlife. Put at least an r5 spec in a 1 series body and I’m in.
