Impressively small despite having a large full-frame sensor, the Canon EOS RP offers flexible imaging capabilities along with a portable form factor. Featuring a high-resolution 26.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor along with a DIGIC 8 image processor, both stills and UHD 4K video can be recorded using a broad sensitivity range, from ISO 100-40000, to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions. Continuous shooting is also supported at up to 5 fps for photographing moving subjects. The sensor also facilitates an advanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF system, with 4779 selectable on-sensor phase-detection points for quickly and accurately acquiring focus during stills and video operation.

Complementing the sensor and processor, the RP also sports a 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder along with a rear 3.0" 1.04m-dot vari-angle touchscreen LCD monitor for easier viewing from high and low angles. Additionally, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth allow for wireless remote camera control along with direct image sharing to linked mobile devices.

Canon RF Lens Mount

The EOS RP features the RF lens mount, which support Canon's line of RF-mount lenses. This mount is characterized by its wide 54mm diameter and short 20mm flange-back distance, which promotes the ability to design lenses that are both faster and smaller than their SLR equivalents. The mount also incorporates a 12-pin electronic contact system for more sophisticated autofocus and image stabilization capabilities. This mount design also lends full compatibility to existing EF and EF-S-mount lenses via an optional EF-EOS R Mount Adapter.

26.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 8 Image Processor

A large 26.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor is featured and serves as an ideal balance between high-resolution output, low-light performance, and high-speed capabilities. When paired with the DIGIC 8 image processor, the EOS RP has a wide native sensitivity range from ISO 100-40000 for working in a variety of lighting conditions. Additionally, continuous shooting up to 5 fps is possible for working with moving subjects.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF

Dual Pixel CMOS AF offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. This system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot. When shooting video, a Movie Servo AF mode offers smooth and natural focusing when changing from different subjects or different distances within the scene, as well as the ability to specify tracking sensitivity, AF speed, and Face or Eye Tracking priority. Benefited by the Touch AF system, rack focus is possible simply by touching elements within the scene on the touchscreen in order to change focus in an intuitive manner. Subject tracking in movies is also heightened due to the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system's ability to recognize subjects and maintain focus when working within changing or cluttered scenery. Additionally, the focus system is sensitive down to EV -5 for working in truly low-light conditions with accurate AF capabilities.

UHD 4K Video Recording

Designed for multimedia image-maker, the EOS RP supports UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution recording at up to 23.98 fps at 120 Mb/s, along with Full HD 1080p and HD 720p at 60 fps for slow motion playback. When recording in-camera, 4K video has 4:2:0 sampling and 8-bit color depth, and 4:2:2 8-bit output is possible when using an external recorder.

Audio can be recorded using the on-board stereo microphone or an optional external mic can also be used via the 3.5mm mic jack.

Also, 5-axis Dual Sensing IS can be used when recording video to electronically reduce the appearance of camera shake for sharper, smoother recording.

Body Design

  • Integrated 2.36m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder affords a bright and clear means for eye-level viewing.
  • Rear 3.0" 1.04m-dot LCD features a vari-angle design for easier use when working from high, low, and front-facing angles. It is also a touchscreen for intuitive control over shooting, playback, and menu navigation controls.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity enable wireless sharing, control, and image transfer with a compatible smart device via the Canon Camera Connect app, which also supports geotagging your files using your mobile device's location data.
  • In-camera charging over USB is supported for easier on-the-go charging.

EOS Webcam Utility

Extending the capabilities of the camera, Canon's EOS Webcam Utility software lets you turn your camera into a versatile webcam by just connecting it to a computer via USB. Compatible with a variety of streaming apps, including ZOOM, YouTube Live, Microsoft Teams, and more, this software also maintains the ability to record internally while livestreaming.

Canon RP Reviews

I love it!

By E
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-27

Loving it so far. Nothings perfect. The small form factor suits me just fine. I don't need all the bells and whistles. I just wanted to upgrade to full frame and stay with the Canon EOS product line. I bought a Canon 16mm F2.8 RF lens and a ProMediaGear L-bracket to use for real estate photography. Quiet and small too. Still learning about the camera. Some tweaking is required with white balance settings. Could be just my inexperience with the camera and lens. I'll figure it out.

Excelet!

For Aspiring Beginning Photographers

By Marcia

There are thousands of reviews to view and read on the gamut of competitive DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras. I compared and studied for over a year but didn't read/see them all. Many could be eliminated by price, audience/market, and bells and whistles. What I was looking for as a hobby iPhone photographer and Photoshop enthusiast was a simple full frame camera for photographs that could keep me interested during the learning curve while providing the right environment to advance. The iPhone 13 pro max camera I'm using now has severe limitations, I run into them daily, but its also always with me and easy to get good shots in a range of situations without much thought (I know). I needed more and better -for a growing hobby- but not overkill and not overwhelming for this recovering, point and shoot, camera user. First off: I love the feel of the camera itself. It was love at first sight. It's comfortable for my hand (female, 5'4'') and feels sturdy not cheap or plasticky and it's easy weight-wise (with a 35 mm RF lens) but not at all cumbersome. It is well-balanced with this lens and I imagine would be with larger lenses too. The manual covers a nice range of shooting scenarios to explain the options and the instructions are easy to read. Turning it on, installing battery and card are easy and intuitive. My first photos didn't need instructions at all. The lens, btw, expresses itself beautifully). I read about the Canon Connect app and downloaded it and was transferring those photos to my phone and sharing them within minutes. One of the features I didn't care about at all and in fact want to get away from is the video. I won't be using it regularly, if at all and I didn't want the cost of the camera influenced by a feature I didn't need or want. So there is video and all I can say is, it is easy to ignore. I wish the screen was larger. It's 3 inches which is comparable to many other cameras but feels a bit small coming after an iphone max screen. That's really my only complaint. As I said, I'm a beginner to these cameras and there may be annoyances down the road but it certainly fulfills my goal of a simple to learn mirrorless that my hobby will be able to grow with and benefit from for several years. The camera was a body only purchase with separate rf lenses purchased individually.

Excellent value!

I bought this little gem just over a year ago along with the RF 35mm f/1.8 lens and I have been beyond pleased with it. I purchased it as a second body, my primary being a 7d Mark ii. I have been beyond pleased. It fits nicely in my camera bag with the 35mm. I've also used it frequently with the EF adapter and my EF 100mm f/2.8L macro and my Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lens with great results. I now only use my 7d Mark ii for birding/wildlife. For pretty much anything else, especially macro, the RP has become my go to. It's not fast, but for macro, landscape and some portraiture it's exactly what I needed.

I had high expectations. unfortunately the camera speed for frames is not what do I really wanted. You will miss special moments during graduation ceremonies or weddings. I am returning it. OH forgot to mention was not compatible with previous Canon Lenses

It’s been almost 2 years that I work with this camera. My EF lenses worked well with the adapter. I get very sharp images. I do Family photography, and it is fast enough to capture kids in movement. I love it!

Absolutely love this camera

I was using a Nikon DX camera before and wanted to move up to Full Frame. I debated and researched the differences between this Canon RP and the Nikon Z5 and I'm so happy with this camera. I'm now a Canon convert. The weight and fit in my hands is perfect, the colors I get from Raw with minimal processing are absolutely amazing.
