Stepping up to a full-frame camera has never been easier. The mirrorless EOS RP – the lightest and most compact full-frame EOS camera to date** - includes a 26.2 MP CMOS sensor, the World’s fastest autofocus*, 4K video, and our powerful DIGIC 8 processor for exceptional results, even in low light.
Explore vast creative possibilities with RF lenses as well as all EF/EF-S lenses***. Get impressive results using the camera’s helpful Feature Assistant and Creative Assist functions. Be imaginative with a number of special scene modes. And quickly adjust settings with the convenient Mode Dial. With its compact size, comfortable grip, vari-angle touchscreen LCD and electronic viewfinder, operation is familiar and easy. Whether you travel near or far, the EOS RP helps you capture your world with the quality, control and ease you crave.
*World's fastest AF 0.05sec. Among interchangeable lens digital mirrorless cameras incorporating 35mm full frame equivalent image sensors with phase-difference detection AF on the image plane and contrast detection AF. EOS RP AF speed is the same as that of the EOS R. (Based on Canon's Research). Calculated based on the resulting AF speed measured according to the CIPA guidelines. Results may vary depending on shooting conditions and lens in use. Relies on internal measurement method.
RF Mount Compatible with RF Lenses and EF/EF-S Lenses**
Engineered to work seamlessly with RF lenses, the EOS RP also maintains complete compatibility with EF and EF-S lenses by using one of three optional Mount Adapters. When using EF-S lenses, the EOS RP even crops automatically to reflect the APS-C sized sensor the lenses are designed for. ** Optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS R is required when using EF/EF-S lenses with an EOS R camera.
54mm Large Diameter and Short Back Focus
The RF mount on the EOS RP camera has a large, 54mm internal diameter – the same as the EOS R – enabling impressive handling and providing increased flexibility for lens design. Thanks to the camera’s mirrorless design, the lens’s rear element can be much closer to the image plane. This reduced back focus distance, combined with the RF mount’s 54mm diameter, helps facilitate lenses of stellar optical quality and stunning performance while enabling innovative compact camera and lens designs.
20mm Flange Focal Distance for Increased Durability
All RF lenses feature a 20mm flange focal distance, which is the distance from the lens mount to the surface of the image sensor. This flange focal distance balances the benefits of short back focus with the engineering requirements necessary for mount stability. Accordingly, the RF mount’s flange focal distance ensures excellent optical performance while maintaining the mount rigidity and camera durability necessary for real-world operation
12 Pins for Quickly Communicating Large Amounts of Information
With a robust 12 pin connection between the camera and the lens, the EOS RP camera and RF lenses are able to communicate at a high speed, transferring a large amount of data and information for incredibly fast AF, plus enhanced image stabilization and optimization.
Variety of Mount Adapter Options for Expanded Compatibility with EF/EF-S Lenses
Mount adapters, such as the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R, deliver seamless connections between the EOS RP camera and EF and EF-S lenses with all functions intact. Offering L series level weather and dust sealing, the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R is even compatible with EF extenders like the Extender EF 1.4x III to extend your camera’s optical reach. Beyond enabling use of EF and EF-S lenses on the EOS RP camera, the Control Ring Mount Adapter EF-EOS R and the Drop-in Filter Mount Adapter EF-EOS R add functions that open up a number of new possibilities for creative image capture.
26.2 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor
The EOS RP camera features a Canon-developed and produced 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approx. 26.2 effective megapixels. It employs the DIGIC 8 Image Processor to enhance the speed of operations across the board. This means fast, efficient performance and phenomenal image quality for big prints.
The EOS RP camera has a standard ISO sensitivity range of 100–40000 for stills and 100–25600 for video (100–12800 for 4K video shooting). Combined with the EOS RP camera’s remarkable low-light AF performance, still and video shooting is possible even in dark situations.
Digital Lens Optimizer
The EOS RP camera has an in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer that works with RF lenses (and EF/EF-S lenses with a Mount Adapter) to provide a substantial improvement in image quality. The Digital Lens Optimizer limits deterioration in image quality caused by low-pass filters or wide-aperture lens designs. It’s usable both during shooting and when developing RAW data, and does not affect continuous shooting speeds. Data from compatible EF and EF-S lenses is built into the camera, and data information from RF lenses is transferred near instantly through the EOS RP’s 12 pin communication system.
High-speed Focusing in Approx. 0.05 sec.***
The EOS RP camera’s highly responsive Dual Pixel CMOS AF system features 4,779 manually selectable AF points*** and can deliver sharp focus within approximately 0.05 seconds****. This means fast action can be captured and focus can be maintained with speed, accuracy and ease. *** Available AF points may decrease when shooting with AF cropping or in movie mode, or depending on camera settings or lens attached. **** Based on the results of AF speed tests in accordance with CIPA guidelines. Results may vary depending on shooting conditions and lens in use. Relies on internal measurement method. Test conditions: • Brightness at time of distance measurement: EV12 (regular temperature, ISO 100) • Shooting mode: M • Lens in use: RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM, with a focal distance of 24mm • Live-view mode: On (with manual shutter button operation) • AF mode: Live single-point AF (central) • AF operation: One-shot AF
Excellent Low-light Performance
Amazing for nighttime photography or in very low light, the EOS RP camera’s brilliant AF can operate in light as dim as a light rating of EV -5^ where other AF systems may fail or search. Phenomenal AF is achieved even when using lenses with high F numbers. This ultra-sensitive AF works in concert with the EOS RP’s EVF to clearly capture subjects even when there’s limited light. ^ When using RF 50mm F1.2 L USM, with central AF point.
Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD
The EOS RP camera features a 3.0-inch, 1.04 Megapixel Clear View LCD II Vari-angle Touchscreen LCD. Brightness is adjustable in seven levels. Its extensive flexibility makes it easy to compose and shoot from virtually any angle, making selfies simple and enabling the LCD to fold away when not in use. The brightness of the EVF and the LCD monitor can even be adjusted individually – a first for an EOS camera. Touchscreen features include settings, review and even AF point selection.
Special Scene Modes
The EOS RP features a variety of Special Scene modes –such as Food, Kids, Sports, Group Photos, Landscape, and more. Handheld Night Scene and HDR Backlight Control are two other Special Scene Modes featured. The Handheld Night Scene mode captures nightscapes with bright highlights and detailed dark areas. The HDR Backlight Control mode ensures that backlit subjects are not recorded too dark.
The EOS RP camera's built-in Creative Assist feature makes it simple to change camera settings and see the results in real time, helping you find just the right look to match the emotion or tone of the image. With effects such as brightness, contrast and saturation easily found on one menu, the EOS RP is a convenient tool for getting great looks and experimenting with different styles.
With its Feature Assistant function, the EOS RP camera can help you take advantage of its advanced features and create impressive photos with ease. By providing simple text explanations as well as sample photos to illustrate the function, the Feature Assistant helps put you in the know so you get amazing photographs.
