The mirrorless Canon EOS RP comes from the same stable as the highly-acclaimed EOS R. Will it prove to be as much of a thoroughbred as the original?
The EOS RP’s body weighs just 440g, so it's more than 20% lighter than the original EOS R. It's also noticeably smaller in size, making it a compact and highly portable model that feels great in your hand.
The Canon-developed full frame CMOS sensor gives you full on image quality, certainly more impressive than APS-C or Micro Four Thirds sensors. Full frame sensors eliminate the crop factor caused by smaller sensors, so your wide-angle lenses can reach their full potential.
One of the biggest selling points of the EOS RP is the wide range of creative shooting modes, including extra automatic modes and built-in feature guides. Fully automatic, semi-automatic and manual shooting modes let you choose your level of control.
In amongst all that is new in the EOS RP is a traditional EOS mode dial, which makes it easier for many of us who are moving from a DSLR to a mirrorless camera system.
The EOS RP mirrorless camera, because of its compact and lightweight design, uses a smaller LPE17 battery. Don't be fooled into thinking this equals a lack of power; you still get 250 shots per charge when using the EVF.
