Some potential Canon EOS R3 buyers may have to wait for almost six months before getting a hold of their devices, according to casinoscout.
According to an update on Canon’s Japanese website titled “Apology and guidance regarding product supply status” this is as a result of the large volume of orders and “due to the influence of global parts supply, delivery delays are occurring.”
Canon, however, assured that it is working on stabilizing its supply chain to deliver products as soon as possible (via CanonRumors). Supply chain shortages have become common since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, causing product delays across many industries, with tech giants unable to meet consumer demand.
However, in EOS R3’s case, persistent delays have become a regular issue. In December last year, Canon apologized for not meeting demands.
“Currently, we have received orders for each of the following products in excess of expectations, and due to the impact of global parts supply, delivery delays are occurring. We apologize for the inconvenience caused to our customers and business partners,” it said.
Canon also stipulated that orders for the RF 14-35mm f/4 L IS USM are also going to be delayed.
“The products are scheduled to be shipped one by one, but it is expected that it will take a lot of time for the new camera body EOS R3 and RF lens RF14-35mm F4 L IS USM.
“We sincerely apologize for the long wait for our long-awaited customers. We will continue to take measures to ensure a stable supply of products so that we can deliver our products as soon as possible. Thank you kindly look forward for your understanding”.
But why the craze over Canon’s EOS R3?
Released in November 2021, EOS R3 is hailed as a powerful blend of the old and new. It is seen asone of the best sports and wildlife cameras ever made. Inside its old-school body is cutting-edge tech including a new stacked sensor, hugely impressive autofocus skills and 6K video. It is being used by many including users of Canada online casino sites.
The EOS R3’s lower-resolution sensor means it has more limited appeal than the Sony A1 and Nikon Z9, and the A1 does trump it in some areas like the EVF. But no other camera combines traditional DSLR charms with next-gen mirrorless tech like the EOS R3.
Canon says the EOS R3 sits in between the Canon EOS R5 (its smaller mirrorless all-rounder) and the Canon 1D X Mark III (its chunky flagship DSLR). In practice, it’s a combination of the two, and the mirrorless successor to the latter.
But Canon hasn’t just repackaged its existing tech with the EOS R3. It’s the flag-bearer for a host of new technologies, most notably a new 24.1MP backside-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor.
