A Practical Upgrade

Canon EOS RP 199,490

Sujith Gopinath

Canon and Nikon between them shared over 85 percent of the D-SLR market in 2018. Sony’s success in the full-frame mirrorless market spurred up development efforts by competitors. This included Panasonic, a Micro Four Thirds player so far. Both Canon and Nikon launched their full-frame mirrorless cameras last year at Photokina 2018. Nikon’s approach was more aggressive and both, the Z6 and Z7, met with near universal acclaim from the world press. Canon’s approach appeared to be more defensive and indicative of its desire to protect its D-SLR market share. The EOS R was a good camera but not as good as Canon’s own EOS 5D Mark IV. It also lacked proper 4K video and in-body image stabilization. Canon was quick to react and has now launched the EOS RP which is aimed at the enthusiast market. SP has the EOS RP on its test table.

Design and Build Quality

The Canon EOS RP is a compact and lightweight version of the EOS R. The body is made of magnesium alloy and offers dust and moisture resistance. This is the smallest and lightest of all EOS cameras with a 35 mm full-frame sensor, and we believe Canon has done a great job here. The camera has two command dials. The camera has a metal lens mount, and the overall construction feels good. The body and the lens are made in Japan.

Key Features

The EOS RP is a 26.2-megapixel mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, which uses a 35.9 x 24.0 mm (Full Frame) CMOS sensor. The sensor uses a self-cleaning feature to keep away dust along with dust delete data acquisition and appending. The camera uses a Canon RF mount, compatible with Canon RF lens group (excluding EF, EF-S and EF-M lenses). EF lenses can be used along with the EF-EOS R adapter. The EOS RP uses a DIGIC 8 processor.
