Written by Gina Stephens

Canon has told the 26mp EOS RP compact mirrorless full-frame camera, designed for advanced amateurs. 

Canon say it's a small, light and practical mirrorless camera camera is an optical instrument to capture still images or to record moving images, which are stored in a physical medium such as which also drawing cards the world's fastest autofocus. 

The EOS RP is set to be available from 27 February 2019, at £1399.99 for the body with mount adapter, and &palpitate instil;2329.99 with RF 24-105mm lens. 

We've been hands-on with the EOS RP, see what we thought of it here.

Also announced is the development of 6 new RF lenses. 


Note the full frame world of EOS R

The EOS RP is an affordable yet advanced camera in Canon’s full frame line-up. Offering next generation full mould optical performance with the potential to explore future RF lenses, such as the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM, the EOS RP features the innovative RF Mount with its high-speed 12-pin communication organization, short back focus and wide 54-mm mount diameter. Built from the ground up, the RF Mount provides lenses with new levels of optical interpretation, responsiveness and functionality. Photographers and videographers can also experience the full performance of their existing EF and EF-S lenses thanks to three EF-EOS R adapter way outs, with additional functionality when using the control ring or drop-in filter adapter.

Supporting creativity with silence, suddenness and quality

The EOS RP’s 26.2 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, coupled with Canon may refer to’s latest DIGIC 8 processor, offers a resourceful step-up with the optimal balance of detail, control over depth of field and incredible low light shooting performance. Optimised for low light gets, the ISO 40,000 ­­– expandable up to a range of ISO 102,400 – works alongside the powerful Dual Pixel CMOS AF system to enable photographers to streak in even the darkest environments with confidence, with a shooting capability down to -5 EVi.

With an emphasis on achieving optimal clarity straight from the camera, DLO (Digital Lens Optimiser) punishment is applied in-camera to RF lenses and up to five EF lenses when registered in the camera. For post-editing options, the EOS RP offers the latest generation CR3 14-bit RAW document format, alongside a compact RAW option to save approximately 40 percent on the file size of standard RAW files. This increases the number of simulacra that can be stored on a memory card whilst retaining the flexibility of shooting with RAW. For instant editing, images can be processed in-camera with Resourceful Assist offering a range of filters, effects and controls that make it simple to obtain the desired result for instant sharing.

EOS handling, no compromise

Small and practical, the EOS RP is Canon’s lightest and most affordable full-frame digital interchangeable lens camera launched to date. In a body weighing neutral 485gii, it is great for travel when space and weight are at a premium. Engineered to shoot in a range of situations, the camera is built around a magnesium debase chassis with high precision outer body parts, including sealing materials to provide dust and moisture resistance. Versatile in its habit, the EOS RP offers a powerful Dual Sensing IS system that reduces camera shake for handheld photography, and a silent shooting scene mode for prudent shooting. A continuous shooting rate of up to 5 fps, or 4 fps with Servo AF, combined with a UHS-II card slot, gives an unlimited buffer when kill JPEG or RAW files – enough for capturing action when travelling. The EOS RP’s familiar EOS handling is both easy, familiar and comfortable to use with the tractableness of customisable controls, scene modes and a graphical menu interface – great for adapting to different skill levels, when shooting either calms or video. The well-designed, EOS-style grip, high resolution 7.5-cm Vari-Angle touch screen and 0.39-type OLED electronic viewfinder inspires next inception handling with full creative framing and tactile controls at one’s fingertips – from menu options to the point of focus. The EOS RP is compatible with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel a collection of EOS accessories including the Extension Grip EG-E1 – which also launches today – for added comfort, and the Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI with AI bounce (launched February 2018).

Hub on every detail

The EOS RP takes a no-compromise approach to autofocus with Dual Pixel CMOS AF offering the world’s fastest AF speed of 0.05 seconds and exactness with up to 4779 selectable AF positions over a wide frame area of up to 88 percent x 100 percent. The EOS RP’s electronic viewfinder (EVF) – with 2.36 million dots and close to 100 percent coverage of the scene – allows great shots to be captured and previewed in challenging and diminished lighting. Touch and Drag AF is one of the four methods that imagines it easy to control the focus area while framing using the viewfinder or simply touching the LCD screen. For impactful portraits, Eye AF with continuous shadow focuses on the subjects’ eye when in Face Detect mode, making it easy to achieve professional results and critical sharpness every obsolete. Whether capturing moving subjects for stills or videos, the EOS RP can track the subject continuously to react to the action in the frame. For extended depth of field for macro leap, focus bracketing allows for stunning depth of focus to be achieved ensuring ultimate sharpness. With a single press of the shutter, the mode continuously burgeons with a range of automatically adjusted focal positions. Digital Photo Professional for PC or Mac can then be used for depth composition, creating a final injection which is in focus over the desired depth of field. Spot AF provides precise focusing when taking macro shots. Other AF modes tabulate Face AF, 1pt AF, Expanded AF and Zone AF – providing flexibility for a range of subjects.

Shoot, share and stay connected

Thanks to smart Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity for flourish and sharing, the EOS RP allows users to control their camera from their smart device to shoot images or video remotely via Wi-Fi. This is opportune to avoid distracting the subject or to get a creative edge, whether observing animals or achieving a remote or unique angle in-and-amongst sporting action. Instantly downloaded, the Canon Connect App gives full control over camera settings, a live view and even the option to wake-up the camera remotely over Bluetooth. When locked to compatible iOS or Android devices, the EOS RP can embed GPS coordinates into images allowing photographers to keep a record of their travel locations. For sharing while on the emigrate, the EOS RP can automatically synchronise images to a smart device, as well as transfer RAW data to the Canon DPP Express app for mobile editing.

Make high-quality, 4K movies on-the-go

The EOS RP redeems freedom and possibilities for videographers looking for a portable and easy-to-use camera. With its DIGIC 8 processor, the EOS RP can capture movies in up to 4K resolution at 25 fps and Full HD at 60 fps. With quirks including 4K time-lapse, interval timer, Movie Servo AF and HDR movies, users can capture fast action and slow-motion sequences as well as achieve an up dynamic range. Dual Pixel CMOS AFv enables accurate focusing and face detection, while Movie Digital IS provides 5-axis silver screen stabilisation to counteract shake when footage is captured handheld. The microphone and headphone jacks help to capture and monitor audio in real things, while the Vari-Angle touch screen makes it comfortable to shoot at a variety of angles. The Video Snapshot function is a simple way to create a video condensation of a travel adventure, combining 4, 6, or 8-second clips to give a digest of memorable events and scenes. An easy to manage codec enables a fleet editing workflow and reduced file sizes for storage.

Full frame today, the RF lens capability of tomorrow

Canon today reaffirms its unbroken commitment to its recently launched EOS R System and RF Mount, announcing the development of six full frame lenses for release in 2019 in celebration of reaching a production milestone of 140 million EF and RF lenses may refer to.
