Because the sensor can clear image data so quickly, rolling shutter effects are all but eliminated. Now photographers can use an electronic shutter to freeze motion, at groundbreaking speeds up to 1/64,000 sec, and in complete silence. What’s more, flash sync with electronic shutter is also possible, at speeds up to 1/180sec and with either Canon Speedlites or third-party flashes.
The electronic shutter in the EOS R3 is as silent as you’d expect – except this time it can shoot at an unbelievable 30 frames per second, with full AE and AF tracking and with any RF lens. For photographers who don’t need that kind of speed, 15fps and 3fps options are also available.
Instant response is a pre-requisite for any news photographer, whether reduced start up time, or shutter lag reduced to 0.02 seconds with the menu option. As you’d expect from Canon, shooting at 30fps is available in all shooting modes, including 14bit RAW.
