An Affordable Mirrorless Shooter Canon EOS RP
PC.com|July - August 2019

With mirrorless cameras being all the rage in this day and age, (well to a big chunk of the market at least), Nikon, Sony alongside the big boys have released their own versions of the mirrorless camera.

In February, Canon released its latest (slightly more refined) version of its full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS RP. Unlike its older sibling, this model lost some of its bulk, being much lighter and more compact, making it easier for casual conventional users to have the luxury of not having to lug a huge DSLR around their neck without looking pretentious. The camera’s width itself without its RF mount (I’ll come to that in a bit) and any lens attached to it is already a sight to behold, but wait, it’s also the least expensive full-frame mirrorless camera in the market, for now at least.

Variants

With Canon offering two options where its RM 5999 for just the body and about RM 10,999 with its 105mm f.4L IS USM lens as part of its kit, this current model is approximately about RM 4000 cheaper than most full-frame mirrorless cameras out there in the market today. With its JPEG quality being a solid 8, its flexibility in a picture’s composition is a breath of fresh air. I think the keyword here is precision. A lot of the features in this model screams boundlessness. With the RF mount playing a pivotal role in Canon’s hand at full-frame mirrorless cameras, you can now enjoy lens interchanging with decent image quality without burning a hole in your pocket.

Canon Selphy Square QX10: Prints Vivid Smartphone Pics

The Canon Selphy Square QX10 is a departure from the company’s CP1300 Wireless Compact Photo Printer and earlier Selphy models. This photo printer is smaller and lighter than those other Canons, and it’s closer in functionality to the Editors’ Choice HP Sprocket Select or Canon’s own IVY Mini Photo Printer, though it’s still too big to be pocketable.
