Canon EOS RP Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera Review 2019, Canon’s first attempt at a full-frame mirrorless camera was EOS. It was a striving effort that provided good image quality and a premium experience, though the features it offered didn’t exactly match its pricing in India, especially considering competition Like the A7 III Sony and the Z6 Nikon.
To appeal to a wider audience, the company has now launched its most affordable full-frame mirrorless camera – EOS RP. The camera was announced in early February and was already available in India by the end of the month.

EOS RP is a trimmed-down version of EOS R, not only in terms of features but also its physical size. The cost of the body alone is 1 Taka. 1,10,495, which is not too bad for a full-frame camera on a compact body. It’s time to find out if it’s any good.
Canon EOS RP Design
The body of EOS RP gives you a DSLR feel instantly. However, unlike most full-frame DSLRs, it is very light at only 485g. The body is well-made and the plastics look solid, but this camera doesn’t feel as premium as the EOS R – the top dials are a bit basic as well.
You won’t get a secondary display or a new ‘mode’ button. Alternatively, the EOS RP has a traditional mode mode dial and two additional dials for changing settings.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, since there is no learning curve with this camera You get a dedicated button for video recording like EOS R, a switch to lock controls, and a multi-function button for quick access to drive modes, white balance, etc. just
The camera has a decent selection of ports. You get standalone microphone and headphone socket, a micro-HDMI port, USB Type-C and a flash sync terminal.
The rear button layout is very similar to the EOS R, but one thing that’s missing is the programmable multi-function bar, but we didn’t miss it too much. Although we found it useful in EOS arrays, its presence in EOS RP doesn’t really hinder our workflow when shooting.
The OELD viewfinder is smaller than the EOS R and has a slightly lower resolution, 2.5ots million dot.
However, we found it quite capable in most lighting situations. EOS RP will not get the very comfortable i-Piece, which we missed. There is an IR sensor, the camera automatically switches between the viewfinder and the LCD when you bring it to your face or remove it using it.
The EOS RP has a single card slot, which is placed alongside the battery bogie underneath the body. It supports fast UHS-2 SD card, which is good. The handgrip is fairly authentic and we felt confident enough to operate this camera while shooting.
Lots of rubber cladding spread throughout the body to assist with ergonomics. The 3-inch LCD on the back has a 1.04 million dot resolution. The touch response is good, and works in the touch input menu as well as in live view mode.
Sadly, once you hit an RF lens, the body’s lightness is not too high. Canon shipped a 24-105mm RF lens with our camera,
which reduced the device’s total weight by 1kg. The combination is very front-heavy, which makes shooting pretty exhausting in the long run. As good as the new RF lenses are, we can use a few lighter (and more affordable) zoom options in the RF family.
Canon EOS RP Specification and Features
The Canon EOS RP has a 26.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and is powered by the same Digit8 image processor using the EOS R.
It has dual-pixel autofocus (AF) with 4,779 selectable AF points, an ISO range of 100-40,000 (expanding to 1,02,400), 4fps with 5fps one-shot AF with form shooting or Surface AF, and a maximum shutter of 1 / 4,000 seconds.
Speed Just like the EOS R, the EOS RP does not have internal stability, so for stability, you have to rely on the stability of the lens. For video, there is electronic stability.
This camera can also shoot 4K video but there are a few small catches. Just like the EOS R, your frame is heavily cropped (about 1.6x). Also, in EOS RP, dual Pixel AF does not work at this resolution. Instead, the camera goes back to contrast detection AF, which is deadly slow.
Full-HD videos can shoot up to 60fps and HDR video support is also high, but at a low frame rate.
The camera can also output 8-bit 4: 2: 2 video via HDMI, but it does not support Canon’s C-Log recording format like EOS R. Another feature missing is a dust-resistant screen for the sensor.
This was very useful on EOS R as it allows you to confidently change the lens while out in the field without having to worry about the dust entering thecamera.
Wireless Connection There is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth built-in to connect the camera to a smartphone, similar to what we’ve seen on EOS R. It allows you to wirelessly transfer images and use your phone as a viewfinder for remote shooting.
Canon EOS RP Performance and Battery Life
In our ISO tests, EOS RP has been a good start. The image was sharp at around ISO 1,600, with barely any noticeable patterns. Upon arriving at ISO,।, the sharpness level was slightly reduced and the details were also slightly hit, as evidenced by the shaded areas of the pencil.
Further push to the ISO shows a steady deterioration in details and image quality.
At ISO 25,600 there was visible noise in the shadow zones, and the edges of the pencils were not as defined as they should be. At ISO 1.3, the image was soft and detailed. There was a lot of noise in the film.
The performance of ISO with Canon EOS R is very similar to what we have experienced
In daylight landscapes, EOS RP takes great detail and the exposure is beautifully handled.
Even when shooting in bright sunlight, there is a good balance of shadow detail and the highlights are not too catchy. Small objects in the distance display good detail, which is visible when you zoom in all the way. The colors also look vivid and the skin tones are handled well.
Canon EOS RP can also shoot HDR steels that capture multiple exposures and combine them for dramatic effect. You can choose how much of the exposure level you want to vary between different shots and add effects to get an artistic look.
The sharp edges around the object in focus, great color reproduction, and good bokeh, even the macros look great, even with the F / 4 lens we are using for this review.
You get a good selection of focus options, including face and object tracking modes. It works very well, and the camera does a good job of locking in your subject.
There is also I AF, which works softly when you are relatively close to yourself. With EOS RP, IF also now works in servo AF mode, which is not the case for EOS R which
Burst shooting is not a strong suit for this camera, as 5fps is simply passable. Also, it’s only with single shot AF, which means the focus is locked only in the first frame.
The switching speed at Servo AF drops down to about 3-4fps, which is not very effective when shooting moving objects. The camera has a very good frame buffer for burst shooting, as it saved 161 frames with more space in our experiment.
However, it took some time to capture quite a bit of it, since the explosion rate is not so high. After a while, it got tired of pressing the shutter button. If you spend enough time on your shots, you’ll be able to get some good shots using Explosion mode. Thanks to the sensor’s decent high resolution, you may be able to crop some very heavy and still get a usable image.
In low light, the EOS RP captures decent details, unless you stress the ISO too much. The dual-pixel autofocus is going to be fast but we’ve noticed some prey when shooting in extremely dark conditions.
Low-light landscapes can be somewhat grainy. At ISO 1.3, the photos may still be usable, but since the details are too soft, we would not recommend cropping them.
Video performance is good at 1080p. The Dual Pixel AF provides smooth transfer between subjects, the clips are crisp and detailed, and the colors are well presented with good dynamic range.
Depending on whether you want fast or slow focus-shift effects, you can adjust the level of tracking and autofocus sensitivity.
The touchscreen works well to frame your shots, and you can use it as a touchpad when using EVF.
The EOS RP can also shoot 4K video, but there are some big compromises. For starters, it can only do 25fps, so the footage looks a bit slippery if you’re moving around.
There is no stability and your frame has been cut quite heavily. The worst part though, is that you can only use contrast detection autofocus, which is slow with pain, even under enough light. In low light, videos have visual noise and images lack good sharpness.
ISPO is limited to 25,600 when shooting at 1080p and 12,800 when shooting at 4K.
Canon released a pretty conservative battery life rating of just 250 shots per charge when using the LCD. However, we’ve been able to easily shoot about 480 stills and a dozen short video clips at a charge, which we didn’t expect.
The camera ships with an external battery charger, but you can also use a Type-C power source to charge the battery inside the camera. Canon recommends using its PD-E1 USB power adapter for in-body charging.
Canon EOS RP The verdict
The Canon EOS RP is the company’s most affordable full-frame mirrorless camera and has made this type of sensor much more accessible to a wide range of users. Its power such as light body, easy master control, a
functional touchscreen and very good image quality under good light works great for Canon’s dual-pixel autofocus steel and 1080p video, and you can use your existing Canon lens with a new RF mount with an alphabet adapter. Can use
But we think the price of this camera is still a bit higher in India only for the body price, you can get a lot of good APS-C cameras (including lenses) like the Sony A6500 and Fujifilm X-T3.
If you factor a 24-105mm lens, the price is around Rs. 200,000. That’s a lot of money, especially considering you get the Sony A7 III with a 28-70mm lens for just Rs. 1,52,999 online. In the interest of distinguishing this camera from the EOS R, Canon has retained several features from the EOS RP, the largest dual-pixel autofocus when
Canon EOS RP shooting 4K video.
EOS RP is an entertaining camera to use and we love its simplicity. If you have an existing Canon lens, all you need is an EF mount adapter and you can use it with this camera, saving you the cost of a new RF lens.
However, it’s really hard to ignore other options – both APS-C and full-frame that are available around this price, most of which offer better features than EOS RP.
