    Some caveats with Canon EOS RP

    Working fine now, but I see there's some challenges depending your camera model. For those new to this world (like me), here's the caveats for the EOS RP: 1) The docs say to use at least a 2A USB power supply, preferably 3A. Given the ambiguity of preferably and there's no standard for 3A USB, this is not confidence inspiring. To eliminate some doubt, I went with a non-standard, dedicated 5.1A power supply, which are not common but are available. It works, but I'll never know if it was necessary. 2) When I purchased the advice I received was to remove the battery door to fit the battery. Don't do this. The camera will refuse to turn on, and convince you you've broken your brand new camera. Instead, open the undocumented, little rubber flap at the base on the **side** of the camera body near the battery door. The dummy battery slides in like normal and the cable exits through the flap so the door can close. 3) During power-on, the camera will notice a non-genuine battery is in use and require you to acknowledge this is not recommended. Easy to do, if confidence sapping, but not very convenient if you bought the dummy battery so you could use the camera hands-free!

    I use it at night for astrophotography here in Cedar City, Utah. Changing batteries can cause the point of aim to be different, using this with my big battery supplies continued power for several hours.

    Good Quality

    does not plug into laptops; requires a 2-3 amp USB charger

    This requires more power to run than most computer USB ports provide, so requires a 2 amp (3 amp recommended) USB charger. Also, this did not work with my Canon SL3 even after I bought a 3 amp charger. I'm not sure if it was defective or incompatible. After I returned it, I discovered that many Canon cameras require that the battery door be closed before they will power on and that there's a small cut out for the power cable. I did not get a chance to test that.

    so far not impressed

    I have yet to get my camera to power up using this item. I have tried several supplies all with 2 amps or more. having just read some of the other reviews, it might have more to do with the camera than the adapter. i will try some experiments when i get back to my studio. I am surprized the item does not include any sort of trouble shooting FAQ. if i can't get it to work i will need to try another option, but if it is the camera not being able to close the door... I would love some suggestions. I have an EOS 250D which is an unlisted model on cannons site, i think it was made only for Amazon and similar outlets. I had some delivery issues which B&H quickly resolved, so i will not be returning it. a small thank you to the customer service dept.

    Extremely Helpful!!!

    Asked by: Darrin
    Note as well as the amperage consideration, two gotchas with the EOS RP: 1. The EOS RP will not turn on with the battery door removed! Don't let well meaning advice relevant to other cameras cause you fear your new camera is broken! Instead, leave the door closed and open the undocumented little rubber flap on the bottom *side* of the camera to allow the cable to exit. 2. The camera will notice the "battery" is not genuine and require a few button presses when switched on to acknowledge you're bypassing Canon's ecosystem protections. Easy, except if you got the dummy battery so you could operate hands free...
