Canon EOS RP specifications
Let’s talk numbers. The Canon EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera comes with 26.2-megapixel CMOS sensor. Canon’s own DIGIC 8 image processor powers the sensor and supports the Dual Pixel Auto Focus feature. This allows for super fast auto-focus speed of 0.05 seconds. It has a total of 4,779 manual AF points, which can cover a wide area with 88 percent horizontal and 100 percent vertical view. The camera also features eye detection AF that can automatically focus on the subject by detecting faces.
The EOS RP also comes with 0.39-inch LCD viewfinder that supports touch AF and a 3.0-inch LCD vari-angle adjustable touchscreen display. The camera can record 4K videos at 24fps and 1080p videos at 60fps. You can extract images from 4K video recordings and do time-lapses as well. It features an ISO range between 100 and 25,600, which can be expanded to ISO 50 – 102,400. It supports both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. You get the usual set of shooting modes and some special scene modes for easy shooting.
One of the most important aspects of the camera, is that it will support all of the Canon EF and EF-S series of lenses. The camera uses a 54-mm mount diameter and Canon provides three RF EOS-R Mount adapters, which are optional of course. The body of the camera just weighs around 440g, which is pretty light.
