Canon EOS RP review: A full-frame camera that cuts too many corners

 

Canon's second full-frame mirrorless camera, the budget EOS RP, is a disappointment. It has potential as a street photography camera thanks to the small size, but is hampered by an inflexible silent-shooting mode. The fully articulating screen could...

Great handling ; Good autofocus performance ; Nice eye-tracking system ; Excellent low-light performance

4K video hobbled by cropping and mediocre AF ; Poor dynamic range ; No in-body stabilization ; Crippled silent shooting mode

If I was shopping for a camera in that budget range, I'd be seriously tempted by Fujifilm's $1,499 X-T3, even though it's an APS-C and not a full-frame mirrorless model. It has a better feature set across the board, with faster shooting speeds and much...

Canon wants to bring full-frame photography to the masses with the affordable EOS RP. It's a solid camera for the price, but Canon needs to release more low-cost RF-mount lenses to pair with it.

Compact body with full-frame sensor. Vari-angle LCD. Integrated EVF. Quick, accurate autofocus. Macro stacking and time-lapse tools. Wi-Fi. Attractive price.

Small EVF. Low-cost native lenses not available yet. Inconsistent face and eye detection. 4K video suffers from heavy crop. Sensor shows limited dynamic range. Small battery. No built-in flash.

Bottom Line: Canon wants to bring full-frame photography to the masses with the affordable EOS RP. It's a solid camera for the price, but Canon needs to release more low-cost RF-mount lenses to pair with it.

The EOS RP is Canon's latest full-frame mirrorless camera, with diminutive dimensions and a diminutive price. Find out how it stacks up and get our thoughts in our early review.

Canon EOS RP Review

 

As I said in the Canon EOS R review, we are looking at the future and I like what I see. With its ultra-low cost, the EOS RP brings the future to a huge audience.

Canon EOS RP Review

 

The new Canon EOS RP certainly isn't the best full-frame mirrorless camera in terms of features, performance or image quality, but it is crucially the cheapest, and it offers more than enough to justify its modest asking price.

Canon EOS RP Review

 

Big sensor, small price point. The compact EOS RP is Canon's second full-frame mirrorless camera, and while it lacks some bells and whistles, the RP lowers the barrier of entry into the full-frame world in a big way.

Very good image quality; Good high ISO performance; Fast Dual Pixel CMOS AF autofocus system; Eye AF with tracking & video support; 4K video; Good build quality; Excellent value.

No IBIS; Sub-par dynamic range; Burst shooting tops out at 5fps; Poor battery life; Limited video features.

Canon EOS RP review

 

The Canon EOS RP is small, affordable and versatile. It's not cutting edge tech, but the cheaper it gets, the more we like it

Svelte, lightweight body ; Fully articulating screen ; 4K video ; Aggressively priced

Body feels small for big RF lenses ; Loses the R’s sensor shutter ; 1.6x crop + no Dual Pixel AF in 4K ; Miserly battery life

While its competitors are going to great pains to create increasingly advanced – and increasingly expensive – high end full-frame mirrorless cameras, Canon is catering to crop sensor consumers who are looking for a full-frame upgrade that won’t break...

Canon EOS RP Review

 

A good full-frame mirrorless camera at a relatively low price.

If you're more interested in video and have a few extra dollars, check out the excellent Nikon Z6 ($1,800 direct). Although the Canon EOS RP may not have the most sophisticated video options or the speediest continuous capture, it's a solid, all-around...
