More Information on Canon's new hotshoe on the XF605 and R3
Tascam has announced the development of an XLR expansion adapter for both the XF605 and also the EOS R3, nailing down that the hot-shoe in the R3 is the same as the XF605.
This new hotshoe looks to be taking a page from the EOS-M and making it better, as it also now supplies power to the accessories, removing the need for bulk and also complicated battery management.
From their press release;
Thanks to co-design and evaluation of a digital hot shoe connection with Canon, compliant with their multi-function shoe, digital audio transmission directly into the camera and bus power supply from the camera is available for a cable-free system with high mobility. In addition, the CA-XLR2d is also planned to be compatible with the multi-function shoe of the Canon XF605 Professional Camcorder. This combination will provide a maximum of four XLR input channels in addition to the built-in two XLR channels on the camcorder.

If you haven't been paying attention, I would strongly suggest you pre-order the EOS R3 as quickly as you can. You can use this link to get on B&H's preorder list. Your card will not be charged until the camera ships. This is going to be a hot seller.
Also the XF605 professional camcorder is available for preorder as well. You can get on the list for that, here.
