Canon Europe recently launched the EOS RP – a small, light and practical full frame mirrorless camera, for advanced amateurs looking to take a step-up into Canon’s revolutionary EOS R System. Ideal for travel, landscape and portrait photography and videography, the EOS RP promises greater potential opening up all the benefits of the EOS R System – including the world’s fastest autofocus . As Canon’s smallest, lightest full frame digital interchangeable lens camera to date, it provides the ultimate blend of practicality and ease of use, with impressive image quality.
The EOS RP is an affordable yet advanced camera in Canon’s full frame line-up. Offering next generation full frame optical performance with the potential to explore future RF lenses, the EOS RP features the innovative RF Mount with its high-speed 12-pin communication system, short back focus and wide 54-mm mount diameter.
The EOS RP’s 26.2 Megapixel full frame CMOS sensor, coupled with Canon’s latest DIGIC 8 processor, offers a creative step-up with the optimal balance of detail, control over depth of field and incredible low light shooting performance.
With an emphasis on achieving optimal clarity straight from the camera, DLO (Digital Lens Optimiser) correction 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 file format, alongside a compact RAW option to save approximately 40 per cent on the file size of standard RAW files.
Weighing just 485g, the EOS RP is ideal for travel when space and weight are at a premium. Versatile in its usage, the EOS RP offers a powerful Dual Sensing IS system that reduces camera shake for handheld photography, and a silent shooting scene mode for discreet shooting and a continuous shooting rate of up to 5 fps, or 4 fps with Servo AF.
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 accuracy with up to 4779 selectable AF positions over a wide frame area of up to 88 per cent x 100 per cent. The EOS RP’s electronic viewfinder (EVF) – with 2.36 million dots and approximately 100 per cent 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 makes 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 tracking focuses on the subjects’ eye when in Face Detect mode, making it easy to achieve professional results and critical sharpness every time. 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 shooting, focus bracketing allows for stunning depth of focus to be achieved ensuring ultimate sharpness.
Thanks to smart Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity for shooting and sharing, the EOS RP allows users to control their camera from their smart device to shoot images or video remotely via Wi-Fi.
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 features 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 expanded dynamic range.
