About the Canon EOS RP Body

A small, light and practical full-frame mirrorless camera for advanced amateurs. Ideal for travel, landscape and portrait photography and videography, the EOS RP opens up all the benefits of the innovative new EOS R System.

 As Canon’s smallest, lightest full-frame digital interchangeable lens camera to date, the EOS RP provides the ultimate blend of practicality and ease of use with impressive image quality. The EOS RP also allows photographers and videographers to explore and utilise Canon’s full portfolio of EF and EF-S lenses.

EOS RP Key Features:
26.2 Megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor
Lightweight body with magnesium alloy chassis
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
4K Movie
DIGIC 8 processor
Three EF-EOS R adapter options enabling compatibility with EF and EF-S lenses
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Enter 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-frame 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 system, short back focus and wide 54-mm mount diameter.

 Built from the ground up, the RF Mount provides lenses with new levels of optical performance, 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 options, with additional functionality when using the control ring or drop-in filter adapter.

Supporting creativity with silence, speed and quality

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. Optimised for low-light conditions, the ISO 40,000 ­­– expandable to ISO 102,400 – works alongside the powerful Dual Pixel CMOS AF system to enable photographers to shoot in dark environments as low as -5 EVi with confidence.

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. This increases the number of images that can be stored on a memory card while retaining the flexibility of shooting with RAW. For instant editing, images can be processed in-camera with Creative 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

Portable 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 just 485gi, 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 alloy chassis with high precision outer body parts, including sealing materials to provide dust and moisture resistance. Versatile in its usage, the EOS RP offers a powerful Dual Sensing IS a system that reduces camera shake for handheld photography, and a silent shooting scene mode for unobtrusive performance.

A continuous shooting rate of up to 5 frames per second (fps), or 4 fps with Servo AF, combined with a UHS-II card slot, give an unlimited buffer when shooting JPEG or RAW files – enough for capturing the action when travelling. The EOS RP’s familiar EOS handling is both easy, familiar and comfortable to use with the flexibility of customisable controls, scene modes and a graphical menu interface – great for adapting to different skill levels, when shooting either stills or video. The well-designed, EOS-style grip, high resolution 7.5-cm Vari-Angle touch screen and 0.39-type OLED electronic viewfinder inspire next-generation handling with full creative framing and tactile controls at your fingertips – from menu options to the point of focus.

Focus on every detail

The EOS RP takes a no-compromise approach to autofocus with Dual Pixel CMOS AF offering an AF speed as fast as 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 make 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 subject’s 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. With a single press of the shutter, the mode continuously shoots 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 shot which is in focus over the desired depth of field. Spot AF provides precise focusing when taking macro shots. Other AF modes include 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 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. This is advantageous to avoid distracting the subject or to get a creative edge, whether observing animals or achieving a remote or unique angle in-and-among sporting action. Once downloaded, the Canon Connect App gives the full control over camera settings, a live view and even the option to wake-up the camera remotely over Bluetooth. When connected 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 move, 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 delivers 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 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. Dual Pixel CMOS AFi enables accurate focusing and face detection, while Movie Digital IS provides 5-axis movie stabilisation to counteract shake when footage is captured handheld. The microphone and headphone jacks help to capture and monitor audio in real-time, 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 summary 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 swift editing workflow and reduced file sizes for storage.
