Canon Europe 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 auto-focus. As Canon’s smallest, lightest 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 utilize 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. Optimized 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.
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 (including memory card and battery), 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.
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 synchronize images to a smart device, as well as transfer RAW data to the Canon DPP Express app for mobile editing.
