Canon EOS RP is the second full–frame mirrorless camera that joins the EOS R launched last year. The Canon EOS RP puts the power of full–frame mirrorless into a small, lightweight EOS R series body, opening up exciting creative possibilities.
This is simply a mirrorless equivalent of theDSLR, boasting an aggressively competitive price and, for its class, an impressively lightweight body.
The body goes for only $1,300 (£1,400, AU$2,100), and comes in a kit with the RF 24-105mm f4 L lens for $2,400 (£2,330, no kit in Australia). At those prices, it’s competing with older models that have experienced price drops over the years, most notably the .
Canon EOS RP Key Specs
Canon EOS RP features a 26MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC 8 processor, along with a Dual Pixel AF system. It has 4779 selectable AF points spread across an 88% horizontal / 100% vertical area of the frame. Canon is emphasizing the RP’s compact size – its 12.7 x 9.7 x 6.1 cm (5.0 x 3.8 x 2.4″) dimensions make it even smaller than a EOS Rebel T7i / 800D.
The EOS RP shoots 4K/24p and 1080/60p video and offers up to 5 fps burst shooting (4 fps with Servo AF in shooting speed priority mode). Like the EOS R it lacks in-body stabilization and will rely on on lens IS. The Canon EOS RP will start shipping from March for $1300 body-only, $1999 with the EF lens adapter and EF 24-105mm IS STM lens, or $2400 with the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM.
