Just released: the new Mirrorless Canon EOS RP. After having a play with it earlier this week we can confirm it’s one of the lightest compact full frames we’ve ever seen. If you’re wanting to shed some kilos and still use all your wonderful Canon glass then this could be just the solution. The Canon EOS RP comes complete with an EF / EF-S adapter so any of your existing Canon lenses fit straight on. At $1999 inc GST it’s pretty good value as well.
You can place Pre-orders today at Team Digital.
Canon EOS RP Key Features:

- Incredible quality images at any time of day
- EOS handling without compromise
- See everything, miss nothing with Dual Pixel CMOS AF
- Shoot flexibly and connect seamlessly
- Create high quality and super-steady movies
A new standard in full-frame image quality
At the heart of the Canon EOS RP is an outstanding full-frame sensor packed with 26.2 million pixels. Delivering a perfect balance of rich, sharp detail and incredibly reliable low light performance, the sensor adds the unique power of Dual Pixel CMOS AF with imaging and focusing pixels to ensure supreme sharpness right across the frame. Coupled with Canon’s RF lenses, optimised for the Canon EOS R System with incredibly high standards of resolution, the result is a new standard of imaging designed to enhance and expand your creative vision.
Shoot high, shoot low with incredible ISO
Unlike smaller sensors, a full-frame sensor allows you to shoot with no limits, capturing more detail and giving you the power to embrace greater creative possibilities in low light levels. With a maximum ISO of 40,000 it’s possible to shoot in low light without flash and yet still retain detail and colour. The Canon EOS RP makes it easy to change ISO quickly and easily via the lens control ring or customisable dials on the body so boosting sensor performance when conditions change is second nature.
Faster image processing thanks to DIGIC 8
The DIGIC 8 is Canon’s latest imaging engine, processing files faster than ever and enabling a more responsive and agile operation with superior colour handling. Thanks to this additional power, Canon engineers have been able to bring the incredible qualities of Digital Lighting Optimizer into the camera rather than in post-production.
The power of DLO the moment you take the picture
DLO corrects optical aberrations and loss of resolution caused by the camera’s low pass filter by applying an inverse function to each shot to take the image nearer to how the scene appears to the naked eye. This creates detailed, high-quality images with manageable file sizes, providing photographers with maximum image quality and greater flexibility. The Canon EOS RP is able to access lens profile information directly from the lens and perform real-time in camera without no limitation optimisation rather than on a computer later.
New levels of image stabilisation
When you want to film without a tripod, Dual Sensing IS provides an advanced 5-axis advantage for smooth, shake-free footage when light levels drop. This powerful stabilisation system sees the lens and camera working together in real-time for stability (dual sensing) through the communication system in the lens mount.
Shoot RAW and capture more
The RAW format, once the preserve of professionals, is now easier to use and understand on the Canon EOS RP. With 14-bit technology, the resulting file is rich in tonal gradation making for optimum quality images when processed in camera or through Canon software such as Digital Photo Professional. A Compact RAW option is offered on the Canon EOS RP too, for space saving with no compromise on image quality.
Shoot in a new way, the same way
The Canon EOS RP offers a new way of embracing the benefits of full-frame without having to swap to a new range of lenses. Simply use an EOS R adapter to continue shooting with your EF and EF-S lenses.
EOS handling with no compromise
A comfortable EOS style grip alongside a high-resolution Vari-Angle touch screen and OLED electronic viewfinder inspires next generation handling in a lightweight 485g body.
