A revolution in autofocus: Eye Controlled AF
The EOS R3 oﬀers a completely new and natural way to focus: select an AF point, or a subject to track, simply by looking at it. A half-press of the camera’s shutter button then either focuses at the selected AF point or initiates continuous tracking of the chosen subject. There is, quite simply, nothing else like it.
The combination of Eye Controlled AF and Focus Tracking makes the EOS R3 a formidable action camera. Shooting athletics on the track? Just select the runner you want to follow simply by looking at them. Press the button and the EOS R3 will track that athlete, picking them out from the crowd. The same magic can be performed on anything from politicians in press conferences, motorbikes on racetracks and even birds in the sky.
The Eye Controlled AF system is easy to calibrate, and calibration settings can be saved for instant recall, and even swapped between bodies via memory card. A single camera can be programmed for diﬀerent photographers or for the same photographer wearing either spectacles or contact lenses. Of course, selection of AF points is also possible using either the camera’s Multi Controller or our unique Smart Controller.
