Latest news

2019 February

21st We’re hoping to have an RP here before long (from Park Cameras, above), so I’m keen to see how it is to use for ‘real photography’ – I may even try and decide just what that means to me, as apart my my day to day paying work

I’d note that most of the ‘reviews’ you’ve seen so far have been quick ‘here try this camera’, so don’t read (yet) too much into all the dynamic range or features whinging you may have seen ;-)

Some more ‘hands on reviews’ for your amusement.

14th The EOS RP is launched. Yes I will be getting one, partly as a backup camera to my 5Ds and partly to review and experiment with.

There’s a useful quick overview at DPR, looking at many aspects of the camera such as the ‘Feature assistant’ that my own style of photography means I’m unlikely to trouble.  Having spent a while with the excellent Hasselblad X1D-50C before Christmas, I’m keen to see how I make use of the DPAF, even if a lot of my photography is manual focus. I’d also note that whilst the EVF has been criticised as ‘less’ than the EOS R, it’s the same as in the (albeit older) X1D and that the rear screen on the RP is the same as the X1D and my current 5Ds

As an aside, I’m keen to see how it performs with my old Zuiko 50mm f/1.2 and an adapter – well, actually with a lot of the old lenses I’ve tested over the years

13th Some of the EOS RP info has appeared in advance of the official announcement.

Step into the creative world of EOS R: Canon launches the compact, full frame EOS RP

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 14 February 2019 ? Canon today launches 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[i]. As Canon?s smallest, lightest [ii] 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 also allows photographers and videographers to explore and utilise Canon’s full portfolio of EF and EF-S lenses.

Today, Canon also announces the development of the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM – the perfect travel companion – practical in both size and performance. It is a versatile all-purpose lens for the advanced amateur photographer or videographer offering a range of focal lengths for capturing extraordinary shots.

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 up to a range of ISO 102,400 – works alongside the powerful Dual Pixel CMOS AF system to enable photographers to shoot in even the darkest environments with confidence, with a shooting capability down to -5 EV[iii].

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 whilst 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 485g[iv], 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 system that reduces camera shake for handheld photography, and a silent shooting scene mode for discreet shooting. A continuous shooting rate of up to 5 fps, or 4 fps with Servo AF, combined with a UHS-II card slot, gives an unlimited[v] buffer when shooting JPEG or RAW files – enough for capturing 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 inspires next generation handling with full creative framing and tactile controls at one’s fingertips – from menu options to the point of focus. The EOS RP is compatible with a range of EOS accessories including the Extension Grip EG-E1 – which also launches today ? for added comfort, and the Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI with AI bounce (launched February 2018).

Focus on every detail
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[vi] 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. 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-amongst sporting action. Once downloaded, the Canon Connect App gives 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 AF[vii] 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.

Full frame today, the RF lens capability of tomorrow
Canon today reaffirms its ongoing commitment to its recently launched EOS R System and RF Mount, announcing the development of six full frame lenses for release in 2019 in celebration of reaching a production milestone of 140 million EF and RF lenses[viii]. Included in the lens development roadmap is the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM, the perfect travel companion ? practical in both size and performance. This versatile all-purpose lens for the advanced amateur photographer or videographer, offers a range of focal lengths for capturing extraordinary shots. The five other full frame RF lenses currently in development suit the needs of every user from advanced amateurs to professional photographers and videographers, all in pursuit of the perfect shot. Building on Canon?s optical lens heritage, this range of lenses will push forward the frontiers of creative capture thanks to the new cutting-edge optics and advanced image processing for both stills and video.

FULL FRAME FOR THE MASSES! CANON INTRODUCES ITS SECOND FULL-FRAME MIRRORLESS CAMERA – THE EOS RP

New Super-Compact and Ultra-Lightweight EOS RP is Ideal for Users Looking to Graduate to Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera at an Affordable Price

MELVILLE, N.Y., February 13, 2019 – Responding to the demand from amateur and advanced amateur photographers for an entry-level, full-frame mirrorless camera, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the second camera in the EOS R lineup, the EOS RP. The EOS RP is designed for photographers looking to step up from Canon’s APS-C cameras: the EOS Rebel, EOS M and the EOS 80D, into the world of full-frame mirrorless photography.

RP size

Weighing in at just 17.29 ounces, the EOS RP camera is lighter than a 500ml bottle of water and smaller than Canon’s popular APS-C DSLR camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T7i, coming in at approximately 5.0in (w) x 3.77in (h) x 2.36in (d). With optics at its core, the EOS RP takes full advantage of the complete line up of RF lenses and is compatible with the existing collection of Canon’s EF and EF-S lenses with the use of one of three optional RF EOS-R Mount Adapters .

“As Canon continues to evolve its full-frame mirrorless cameras, our goal is that one day the EOS R line becomes as widely popular as our celebrated lineup of EOS DSLR cameras,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As a company, we believe that in order for us to accomplish that goal, Canon needs to develop full-frame mirrorless cameras for every skill level of photographers and that starts with amateurs and advanced amateurs. This makes the EOS RP the perfect addition to the existing lineup.”

The new Canon EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera features a 26.2 megapixel CMOS sensor that is powered by the company’s DIGIC 8 image processor, providing users with high-image quality, outstanding operation and functionality. The new Canon EOS RP features Dual Pixel CMOS Auto Focus (AF) with 4,779 manually selectable AF points and a wide AF coverage area of 88 percent horizontal and 100 percent vertical. With f/1.2 lenses, the camera astonishingly boasts AF sensitivity in low light in as little as Exposure Value (EV) -5. When using the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM lens with the EOS RP, the camera can focus in as little as 0.05 seconds with Dual Pixel CMOS AF . When using eye detection AF, the camera can automatically detect faces and focus on the eye of the subject. This feature is supported when the camera is set in either servo AF mode during continuous shooting and movie servo AF, as well as one-shot AF.

Like the EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera that was announced in September 2018, the EOS RP is built around the same 54mm mount diameter and short-back focus. This allows for the use of one of three optional mount adapters for full compatibility with all existing EF, EF-S, TS-E and MP-E lenses. Through the use of the optional Drop-In Filter Mount Adapter or Control Ring Mount Adapter, these lenses, in fact, gain functionality.

For photographers looking to further expand their abilities and capture a wide variety of both still and video images, the EOS RP features Visual Guide mode. First introduced with the EOS Rebel T7i and EOS 77D, this mode allows users to see on screen how switching modes on the mode dial or tweaking settings can alter the image they are about to capture. This mode helps to guide photographers to capture more compelling images, such as ones with a shallow depth-of-field or being able to give moving subjects a frozen or flowing look. For those looking to expand their imaginative options, the camera also features Creative Assist mode that allows photographers to use new and unique visual effects and adjustments when shooting, such as brightness, contrast, saturation, color tone, monochrome and background blur. In addition, the design, ergonomics, layout and ease-of-use of the camera are very similar to that of other Canon cameras consumers might already be familiar with.

Additional noteworthy features of the EOS RP camera include:

  • Built-in 0.39 inch, 2.36 million dot Electronic Viewfinder with Touch-and-Drag AF
  • Vari-Angle LCD touchscreen
  • 4K UHD 24P/Full HD 60p video recording with 4K time-lapse shooting and the ability to extract still images from 4K video recordings
  • ISO range of 100-25,600 that is expandable up to ISO of 102,400
  • Built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® technology
  • Mobile RAW workflow supported paired with Digital Photo Professional Express App
Availability and Pricing

The Canon EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera is scheduled to be available in March 2019 for an estimated retail price of $1299.00 for the body only. It will also be sold as a body-and-lens kit with the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM lens for $2399.00*
