Lightest, Smallest Full-Frame EOS Camera

For all their appealing features one of the concerns of using a full-frame camera has been its larger profile, however, the compact and comfortable EOS RP is the lightest and smallest Canon EOS full-frame camera to date.* Weighing approximately 0.97 lb (440g, body only), the EOS RP is more convenient to carry, shoot with, and store than any previous EOS full-frame camera before.

RF Mount Compatible with RF Lenses and with 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 for which the lenses are designed.

54mm Large Diameter & Short Back Focus

The RF mount on the EOS RP camera features 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 use of 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 Pin Connections for Large Amounts of Data

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.

* NOTE: at release February, 13 2019

** NOTE: An optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS R is required when using EF/EF-S lenses.

High Image Quality with 26.2 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS Sensor & DIGIC 8 Image Processor

The EOS RP camera features a Canon-developed and produced 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approximately 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.

ISO 40000

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.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF for Fast & Accurate Auto Focus

High-Speed Focusing in Approximately 0.05 seconds

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.

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

*** NOTE: Available AF points may decrease when shooting with AF cropping or in movie mode, or depending on camera settings or lens attached.
**** NOTE: 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.

AF Area of Coverage - Approximately 88% x 100%

The EOS RP camera features an expansive focus area of approx. 88% horizontal and 100% vertical not only with RF lenses, but also when working with select EF lenses. With older EF lenses, or with Extender types I and II, the EOS RP focuses approx. 80% horizontally and 80% vertically. This means fast and impressive focusing even if your subject is way off center.

NOTE: Coverage area mentioned applies to shooting still photos. Actual coverage varies depending on the lens in use, of course.

AF Points & AF Area

The EOS RP camera features a sophisticated AF system with a maximum of 4,779 manually selectable AF points, which covers almost the entire image sensing area. The EOS RP can also be configured to focus on specific areas, using an extended range of selectable modes that include 1-point AF, Expand AF Area, Zone AF and Spot AF in addition to the conventional Face+ Tracking AF.

NOTE: Available AF points may decrease when shooting with AF cropping or in movie mode, or depending upon camera settings or the attached lens.

AF Point Selection & AF Methods

  • Face+Tracking AF
  • Spot AF (not available in 4K movie recording)
  • 1-Point AF
  • Expand AF Area (above, below, left and right/around)
  • Zone AF Large Zone AF (vertical/horizontal)

AF points can be moved by touching the screen or using the Main Dial, Quick Control Dial or cross keys.

AF Working Range: EV -5 to 18 (f/1.2, at 73°F/23°C, ISO 100, 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 (when using RF 50mm F1.2 L USM with central AF point) 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.

f/11 Compatible in All AF Areas

The EOS RP camera's brilliant AF system doesn't just work with bright lenses. With the EOS RP, autofocus will operate over nearly the entire image area even when used with compatible f/11 lenses. For example, users can take ultra-telescopic 800mm shots using a compact EF 100-400mm f/4-5.6 IS II lens together with an EF 2x III extender, and AF will function properly over the entire field. When used with a III-type extender, the effective AF range is limited to an area roughly 88% x 100% of the total image frame, or 80% x 80% if combined with a I/II type extender.

Variety of AF Modes Including Eye Detection AF

The EOS RP camera's Face+ Tracking mode helps enhance reliability for tracking moving subjects. When the camera detects a human face, it uses the subject's eye as the AF point, choosing the eye closest to the camera by default. Photographers can also select which eye to focus on by touching the screen or using the camera's AF point selection button and cross keys. Eye Detection AF can also be used in conjunction with Servo AF and Movie AF modes.

Focus Peaking

Among the EOS RP camera's manual focus aids, Focus Peaking helps establish the focus area quickly and clearly. With manual focus peaking, the outline of the area in focus is indicated by a colored line. Focus Peaking is usable in conjunction with the EOS RP's Focus Guide feature, and can be customized with peaking color and detection level specifications that fit the project at hand.

Built-In EVF with 2.36 Million Dots

The EOS RP camera features a high-precision 0.39-inch OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) EVF with approx. 2.36 million dots and a 22mm eyepoint. The electronic viewfinder (EVF) has been created to provide a bright, sharp and colorful 100% view of the subject at hand. Equipped with an aspherical lens, the EVF shows a crisp and vivid image with minimal distortion, even when the eye moves off the center of the visual field.

The EOS RP EVF has a bright, 22mm-high eyepoint design that creates a generous 30mm space between your nose and the rear of the viewfinder. This makes it easy to compose and view images in the viewfinder with or without glasses.

The EVF's 0.39-inch OLED based display features approximately 2.36 million dots for an incredibly sharp and detailed image that makes it easy to check focus and view the extensive image data that's displayed.

Touch & Drag AF

Touch and Drag AF makes it fast and easy to select a focus point without taking your eye away from the viewfinder. Using the Touchscreen LCD, it's as simple as pointing to the desired area of focus. The chosen AF point is then displayed in the camera's EVF for quick confirmation.

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.

Shooting Modes

A mode dial is featured on the top of the EOS RP camera to provide quick and easy access to a number of shooting modes and settings. For instance, the SCN option - or Special Scene Mode option - gives you the opportunity to select from a variety of settings. This includes modes such as Food, Group Photos, Kids, Panning, and even Silent Mode-perfect for situations where the shutter could be turned off. To set individual features to Auto or Manual, the user can use the Fv mode (Flexible AE) to quickly adjust functions such as shutter speed, aperture setting, and ISO sensitivity.

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.

Easy Operation

The EOS RP is designed to allow users to operate almost every feature while looking through the EVF (electronic viewfinder). The camera features various operating controls, such as buttons, switches, and dials, that make them easy for the user to locate and operate. Many of the operating controls can even be customized to perform different functions to make the shooting process even easier.

Creative Assistant
