The Canon EOS R3 can focus on a subject just by you looking at it

After teasing the camera back in April, the Canon EOS R3 has now been officially revealed – and this mirrorless camera designed for sports shooters has some next-level technology up its sleeve.

One of the most impressive of which is Eye Control AF, an autofocus system which enables you to focus on a subject by simply looking at it through the viewfinder.

Autofocus is a key focus for the R3 – which Canon says sits in-between the EOS 1D X MkIII and EOS R5 DSLR cameras – as it also includes eye-tracking, face-tracking, the ability to track bodies of both people and animals, plus – for the first time in an EOS camera – there’s vehicle tracking.
