Canon EOS RP review in progress

Canon EOS RP review in progress

The Canon EOS RP is among the smallest and lightest full-frame cameras on the market, and is the least expensive full-frame camera at launch, ever. And though its specifications aren't going to set the world on fire, the RP is a likable little camera with solid JPEG image quality that will be a fine photographic companion for casual users and those already within the Canon ecosystem looking for a compact second body.

Key specifications:

  • 26.2MP Dual Pixel CMOS sensor
  • 4K/24p (from 1.7x crop region)
  • 4 fps continuous shooting with continuous AF (5 without)
  • Pupil detection AF in continous/Servo AF mode
  • AF rated to -5EV (with an F1.2 lens)
  • Digic 8 processor
  • 2.36M dot OLED viewfinder
  • Fully-articulated 1.04M dot touchscreen
  • Twin command dials
  • CIPA rated to 250 shots per charge

Accounting for inflation, the EOS RP (body-only) is priced within $75 of the original 6MP Canon Digital Rebel / EOS 300D that was released back in 2003 - a camera that really helped bring large-sensor digital photography to the masses. And like the Digital Rebel, the EOS RP promises to offer a bit of a stripped-down shooting experience in exchange for its large full-frame image sensor at a reasonable cost. It's worth noting, however, that the earlier Rebel debuted with a range of relatively low-cost lenses designed for it - not so much the case today.

While other manufacturers are moving ever further up-market with more expensive and capable devices, the EOS RP stands alone in providing more novice or budget-constrained users with access to the shallower depth-of-field that full frame cameras offer over those with APS-C or smaller sensors. There are caveats, though, in that the RP is a poor choice for those looking to shoot video, and the native lens selection is lacking at this time.

The EOS RP is available now at a price of $1299 body-only, $1999 with the EF adapter and a 24-105mm F3.5-5.6 lens, and $2399 with the native RF 24-105mm F4L lens.
