Just a couple of weeks ago, Canon officially took the wrapping of its full-frame budget camera, the EOS RP, and Canon has not taken long to launch it in India. With sales starting on February 27, the Canon EOS RP can now be purchased in India for Rs. 1,10,495 for the body only or can be obtained with the lens RF24-105mm f / 4 IS USM for Rs. 1,99,490. This camera competes for a spot with some of the premium APS-C cameras, such as the Sony A6500, the Fujifilm X-T3 and even some of the older Sony Alpha full-frame cameras such as the A7 II, which can still be found in the market.
The Canon EOS R is based on the company’s new RF support, which debuted last year with the Canon EOS R. The new EOS RP model is aimed at advanced amateurs, who want to move from cameras with cut-off sensors but necessarily have the budget to spend everything for something like the EOS R. Taking this into account, the EOS RP has increased slightly. The specifications below, such as a 26.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, are powered by the same DIGIC 8 image processor as its older brother. It is also thinner and lighter, weighing approximately 485 grams.
Canon EOS RP Other Specifications
It includes 4,779 selectable autofocus points (AF), a native ISO range of 100-40,000, 5 fps burst shooting with One-Shot AF mode (about 4 fps with Servo AF), dual-pixel AF, recording 4K video at 24 fps, a fully articulated touch screen Display, and built-in wifi and Bluetooth. The camera also has EyeAF, which is said to work even in Servo AF mode and there is also a silent shooting mode. The Canon EOS RP also boasts an electronic viewfinder (EVF) with a resolution of 2.36 million points and the screen can be used as a touch panel for AF with just touch and drag. Like the EOS R, the EOS RP can also be charged through the USB type C port, but you will need the optional PD-E1 adapter.
It is possible that Canon has entered late to the segment without a full-frame mirror, but is the first to carry a camera of this type at such a low price. However, the only problem is the cost of the new RF lenses, which are not cheap, at least for now. If you are already a Canon user, you can adapt your existing EF and EF-S lenses to the new RF support, using the optional adapter. If you just look at the prices of body-body-one, Canon has tough competition from the segment without a premium mirror. Sure, those cameras offer clipped sensors, but almost all have a more extensive set of features when it comes to video or burst. It’s interesting to see how the new Canon EOS RP compares to them when we test it.
