The sensor on the Canon EOS R3 is key to the image quality the camera can achieve, and it’s Canon’s first “stacked” CMOS sensor to date. Let’s take a quick look at how it compares to other cameras with similar pixel count.
Our test scene is designed to simulate a variety of textures, colors, and types of detail that you’ll encounter in the real world. It also has two lighting modes to see the effect of different lighting conditions.
We’ll do a full analysis in our full review, but we can bat off the R3 with competitive detail in its class. The differences between it and other cameras of similar resolution will mostly come down to aliasing filters (or, in more consumer-oriented models,).
Let’s take a quick look at the dynamic range as well.
We were curious to know how much – if any – the EOS R3’s ultra-fast electronic shutter might add noise, and the answer seemed to be “not much”. You have to get into the ultra-deep shadows, and drive between 5 and 6 stops, to really see the difference. This is a promising result and indicates that you can use the electronic shutter in most cases without having to worry about significant impact on image quality.
