Canon EOS R3 Coming with a 45MP Sensor?

According to the report from Techradar, the Canon EOS R3 is rumored to feature a 45MP sensor, just like the Canon EOS R5.

From Techradar:

Canon hasn’t yet officially confirmed the resolution of the Canon EOS R3, its equivalent mirrorless camera for pro sports photographers, but rumors have strongly suggested that it’ll also be a 45MP camera. We do already officially know that R3 will be able to shoot 30fps bursts and oversampled 4K video.

But, I have to say this is the first time I’ve heard of such a rumor. Canon Rumors previously stated that the Canon EOS R3 will be equipped with a 30.1MP sensor. Since Canon does not mention 8K video on the official page of EOS R3, it seems that there is a higher possibility that EOS R3 does not support 8K (such as 30MP as Canon Rumors says).

We know Canon is currently working their own image sensors for different sensor resolutions: 24MP, 30MP and 45MP. Maybe Canon hasn’t decided which image sensor will use on the Canon EOS R3 and they are waiting for the professional feedback to decide on the sensor resolution.

The Canon EOS R3 full frame mirrorless camera will be officially announced in September 2021. The exact announcement date is still unknown at the time of writing, more information will come out in the next few days. Stay tuned with us for more Canon Rumors.
