Canon EOS RP Review (beautifully compact yet fully functional body, D. Abbott)

Canon Eos Rp

Photographer and review Dustin Abbott posted his exhaustive review of the Canon EOS RP, the company’s latest full frame mirrorless camera and the first real entry-level camera.

In his conclusion D. Abbott writes:

[…] the Canon EOS RP is a mixed bag.  In some ways I am more inclined to be charitable to it, as I enjoy enjoying the camera due to have wonderfully familiar ergonomics and that it fits the hand so much better than many competitors and because the price point is so reasonable.  For these reasons I suspect a lot of people will end up buying an EOS RP.  I certainly would choose it over a Canon 6D Mark II for the simple reason that the autofocus system is better by orders of magnitude and the new RF lenses (while expensive) have been excellent.  The seamless experience in using EF lenses via the Canon adapters is also compelling.  But Canon’s “blind-eye” approach to what competitors offer has become somewhat vexing.  The EOS RP’s sensor is not really competitive with much of anything (it is surpassed by a number of APS-C sensors in certain areas) and the video performance is near insulting…to me. 

Abbott’s review comes with all sorts of tests and a huge set of sample pictures. For those more inclined to watch the review, the videos below sum up everything.

How Good Is Nikon Z 6/Z 7 Eye AF and Can it Compare with Canon and Sony?

Nikon Z

Jared Polin analyses the eye AF of the Nikon Z 6 (added via firmware update) in this 27 minutes video.

The Nikon Z 6’s Eye AF performance is compared with Canon and Soy full frame mirrorless systems (i.e. EOS R and Sony a7III)

The first video is the full review, the second one (4 min) shows only the side-by-side comparison with Canon and Sony.

Do You Remember The Canon EOS-1D C? And How Does It Compare To The Canon EOS C200

EOS-1D C

Canon EOS-1D C at a glance:

  • 4K 4096×2160 8-Bit 4:2:2 Cinematic Video
  • Canon Log with 12 Stops of Dynamic Range
  • Continuous Recording, No 29:59 Min Limit
  • Full HD 1080p Recording at up to 60fps
  • 18.1MP CMOS Sensor
  • Dual CF Card Recording Media
  • Dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processors
  • 3.2″ LCD Screen
  • 61-Point High Density Auto Focus
  • EF Lens Mount; Magnesium Alloy Body

This is a camera that’s flying a bit under the radar lately. The Canon EOS-1D C (“C” for Cinema), released in 2012, is a heavy weight of gear (literally and figuratively), made for pros and movie making.

Armando Ferreira compares the EOS-1D C with the Canon EOS C200, just to see how they compare and if the EOS-1D C can still deliver seven years after its release. Btw, you can get an EOS-1D C used for

Canon Rebel SL3 Review (excellent live view system, Photography Blog)

Canon Rebel SL3 at a glance:

  • 24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen
  • UHD 4K Video and 4K Time-Lapse Movie

  • Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Photography Blog posted their full review of the new Canon Rebel SL3, aka EOS 250D aka EOS 200D Mark II aka Kiss X10.

From the conclusion:

The Canon EOS 250D / Rebel SL3 is a rather modest upgrade of the 2-year-old Canon EOS 200D / Rebel SL2, principally adding 4K video recording, a much-improved Live View experience and longer battery life to justify its introduction.

[…]

Canon have been much more successful in improving the EOS 250D’s live view mode, which does benefit from using the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system. Being able to compose using the vari-angle touchscreen and choose from one of the 3,975 AF points, complete with face/eye detection, is a real advantage, making the EOS 250D one of the best DSLRs around in terms of its live view mode.

On the other hand, having such an excellent live view system does highlight the camera’s rather basic optical viewfinder, which still relies on a rudimentary 9-point AF system and doesn’t offer the same rich experience as a true mirrorless camera. The headline grabbing battery life of over 1,000 shots also relies on using the optical viewfinder, rather than the much better live view mode.
