Released in 2019, the Canon EOS RP is the second full-frame mirrorless camera from the Japanese corporation. It is an entry level model with an attractive price in the full frame market, making it in fact the most affordable product in this category (based on new cameras and official retail prices). It joins the original EOS R in the growing RF system.
The EOS RP has a 26.2MP sensor which is the same found in the EOS 6D mark II, but with optimised micro lenses for the mirrorless flange. Performance is not great when it comes to dynamic range, but it has an ISO range of 100 to 102400 ISO and uses Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF with 4,779 points. It can record 4K video at 24 or 25p, but sadly a heavy 1.75x sensor crop is applied and Dual Pixel CMOS AF only works in 1080p. The burst speed doesn’t go past 5fps. At least there is an excellent multi-angle LCD screen, a mic input and headphone output.
