Thanks for the explanation.

- Segue side note, on a mirrorless camera like this, is there such a thing as a "single precision AF point" ? I thought those AF sensors cross type etc. were all a thing of the SLR past.

There are no cross type AF points, as those were part of the separate AF sensor found in DSLRs. Current mirrorless uses DPAF, which is line type only, not cross type, though much smarter than the old line type DLSR sensors on account of the processing horsepower behind them.

You can, however, tell the mirrorless camera to use a single, small area of the sensor to look for focus. Similar to a traditional DSLR. You can also do a larger point, expanded point, or area of points - again all similar to a DSLR. In these modes, it wont track the subject, but you can manually track it in servo mode like you would have on a DSLR.

In face/eye tracking mode, you can tell it to find an eye in the frame - in this mode, you won't see any focus point in the viewfinder, it will just find a face or eye and lock on and track. Or you can set it to only look for an eye under a single focus point - in this mode you'll see a box where it will look for focus, and once it finds a face or eye it will track it anywhere in the frame.

Its amazing to see it work.

The R3 tracking option will allow you to pick any of the focus spots/zones and start focusing. If the camera then recognizes what itís tracking as a human or an animal it will then find the head/face/eye and start tracking as appropriate. Itís a fairly significant change over the R5/R6 AF tracking options.

Perfect scenario for Eye AF, I could instantly select where I wanted the focus point to be at The Blues walked down their Flightline, never had to press a button, move a focal point, I just "looked" at the point that I wanted.


Did you try this Eye AF with longer focal lengths and larger apertures? For the intended use and price, I would hope the R3 would be nailing your test above f/2.8 and larger apertures. And if there was some separation at f/2.8 between a subject near and far, how quickly would it switch back and forth between close and more distant subjects?

Anyone have a 135L they could test this technique with at f/2?

You could also just use the AF joystick instead of turning off the ECAF.

Set the focus point where you want to focus, when ready focus using AF joystick press and HOLD it. when you hit the shutter halfway for an exposure lock it will not try to relock the focus at all. I can easily use both auto-focusing systems without changing default behavior in either direction.

From Jared P's comparison video, it appears he was really impressed with the R3 AF and cleaner image through the EVF. Congrats, Canon friends .. looks like Canon knocked it out of the park with the R3. Hopefully this stops the unnecessary trolling by fans of a certain brand in all forums. 🥶

When you put your battery in, is it completely flush with the body?

I shot about 6,000 photos of chummed gulls this morning with the R3 and RF600/4. Good light. Havenít downloaded pictures yet. The camera seems to be a bit like the R5 but on steroidsÖ except for the 24 megapixels.

The ďno blackoutĒ shooting doesnít seem to be the same as I recall from having the A9 (which I sold 1.5 years ago). Where the R5 becomes a 20Hz monitor, the R3 becomes a 30Hz monitor. This wasnít really noticeable when I was taking pictures of my 2 year old son running at me, but it was noticeable with the frame filling gulls flapping quickly. Still a significant improvement over the R5 and I donít think that thereís really a whole lot of difference Iíd see in tracking ability if the feed were 60Hz or 120Hz the whole time. Iíve not throttled the fps down from 30 yet.

Hit rate for sharp on the eye focus of the flying gulls seemed a lot better when chomping and a lot less photos with the wingtips sharp.

The 600 definitely seems to more rapidly with the R3 than it does with the R5, but Iím not 100% sure this isnít confirmation bias. I still had several instances where the camera picked up the background and wouldnít focus on the blurry bird right in the middle of the frame. However, the lens seemed to jump from near to far focus faster than with the R5.

Going to download some pictures now. I expect that this camera will be just about everything Iíd hoped for in improvements with the R5Ö except itís 24 megapixels, which isnít necessarily all bad, especially when Iíve filled the frame with the birds.

Here's an R3 shot from a football game last night. ISO 10K, NO noise reduction. This file is down res'd for FM.

The tracking ability of the R3 and RF600 with 2X teleconverter is significantly improved. No IQ issues with the RF1.4X at this point, although Iíve only shot it in good light and I felt the RF was an improvement over the 600III and 1.4iii. Presumably this is as a result of lower pixel density. The quality seems to be right where it was with the 600II and 1.4iii, which is essentially imperceptible. Very happy so far.
