If you're looking for the best and cheapest Canon R3 deals, you've come to the right place. Since its release in September 2021, the Canon EOS R3 has been one of the hottest mirrorless cameras around.

After extensively shooting with the Canon EOS R3 we can confidently say that it should be the tool of choice for working professionals. Whether you shoot sports, weddings, portraiture, pets or news, the blackout-free 30fps stills and 6K RAW video mean that you never miss a moment of action or detail – and the improved AF performance, coupled with ghostly good Eye Control AF, ensure that every shot is focused exactly where you want it. This is the professional camera of the future – and it's here now.

With the pandemic and resulting electronic chip shortages causing havoc in the global camera industry, retailers are struggling to stock enough of some of the most popular camera models. But don't despair! We've scoured the web to find retailers near you who'll either have the Canon R3 in stock right now, or else available for pre-order. Scroll down to see today's best prices...

The Canon EOS R3 stakes a bold claim as the best professional camera thanks to its 6K RAW video, blistering (and blackout-free) 30fps shooting, and its peerless AF system that now enables you to move focus points by moving your eyeball. 

There's no doubt that this is Canon's fastest and most advanced camera ever, even outdoing the mighty Canon EOS R5 when it comes to technology – not to mention record times and overheating, when it comes to video.
