Not lengthy after its launch of the EOS R digital camera, Canon is already nearing the launch of a second full-frame mirrorless digital camera. The EOS RP has been revealed in a collection of photos posted on Nokishita as we speak. In contrast to rivals Sony, Nikon, and, most not too long ago, Panasonic, which every supply a pair of identical-looking cameras, Canon is giving the EOS RP a singular design that’s considerably smaller and lighter than the R.
The EOS RP reportedly weighs simply 1.07 kilos in comparison with the 1.45-pound R. That’s undoubtedly a distinction you’ll really feel and recognize when carrying the digital camera round. It measures 132.5 x 85.zero x 70.0mm in opposition to the R’s 136 x 98 x 84mm, so, once more, you may see how a lot Canon has been in a position to shave off of the newer digital camera. This comparability by Apotelyt actually lays it out:
You’re shedding the highest LCD that’s a simple reference for present settings, and Canon has additionally left the multifunction bar off of this mannequin. Sadly, there’s not a spotlight joystick as an alternative; shrinking the whole lot down left Canon with out a lot room for the contact bar, which some individuals could be simply high-quality going with out. The rear LCD nonetheless flips out frontward, a minimum of.
Nokishita says the RP will function a 26.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor (borrowed from the 6D Mark II, I’d guess) with Canon’s signature dual-pixel autofocus system and the Digic eight picture processor. Steady taking pictures will prime out at 5 fps, and the native ISO vary is reported to be 100-40,000, which is identical as on the EOS R.
The EOS RP is rumored to price both $1,499 or $1,599, based on CanonRumors, so that is very a lot meant to be the mainstream, entry-level product in Canon’s new mirrorless line. Canon will even use the digital camera’s introduction — pegged for February 14th — to develop its lineup of RF-mount lenses with a minimum of 5 new choices.
- Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM
- Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM
- Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM
- Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.three IS USM
- Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
Mixed with the launch lenses, that’s a a lot larger native lens choice than what Nikon is at the moment providing for its Z6 and Z7. The EOS R will stay the extra able to these two cameras when it comes to specs and efficiency — which isn’t any shock as a result of its larger worth level — however making it cheaper to get began with Canon’s all-new digital camera system is a sensible transfer. Hopefully, the RP gained’t have too many apparent downsides meant to push individuals towards the pricier R. For some, that’s simply an excessive amount of digital camera, and this could be excellent. It’s only a disgrace Canon nonetheless isn’t providing a mannequin with in-body stabilization.
We must always know extra very quickly if that February 14th announcement date is correct.
