Cannot neglect that Canon themselves had been the primary to essentially disrupt that market, with the R5 being 20 FPS at 45 megapixels, which was double what the “high-speed high-res D850” did on the time. That they had loads of time to contemplate how they’d proceed catering to the decrease decision sports activities market whereas making a flagship digital camera, and I can think about they most likely determined to spin the decrease decision section off into the R3.
If you happen to take away the A1, R5, and Z9 from the discussions, the R3 matching the A9II’s decision and including 10 FPS is a fairly large deal for the individuals who use these.
I feel there’s most likely a lot extra for Canon to shock us with out of the R3. Canon is absolutely going to have to indicate how the R3 tops the R6 which is at the least $2000 much less and probably solely ~4 megapixels much less. I feel it is an uphill battle for that to easily be “BSI means no rolling shutter” as a result of I actually do not know what number of photographers on the market know what meaning or seems like.
Truthfully utilizing my R5 in 20 FPS mode, I barely see the rolling shutter results in day-to-day use, and have not been significantly bothered by it whereas photographing sports activities and wildlife. It could be extra of a bonus to me if the picture high quality/dynamic vary in digital shutter matches the mechanical shutter, and 0 distortion would even be good, however I simply can’t think about that being 2000-to-3000-dollars-more-nice.
One factor that may significantly make the R3 extra worthwhile in digital shutter can be making us in a position to fine-tune shutter velocity like on the Sony cameras to anti-flicker shoot at any shutter velocity and in 30 fps, which is a function I’ve at all times wished on the R5 and even the 1DX2. It could even be nice to see digital shutter having variable burst charges.
