Canon EOS RP To Feature A 26MP Sensor? [CW2] – UPDATE

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

Update 1/6/19: it turned out the rumor is reliable.

An unconfirmed suggestion showed up in our inbox, coming from unknown source. The upcoming Canon EOS RP might have a 26MP sensor.

Earlier a rumor emerged suggesting the EOS RP will have a 24MP sensor. In favour of a 26MP sensor there is a yet unreleased Canon camera which leaked a year ago through a wireless certification authority.

The unreleased camera denominated K433 has these (machine translated) specifications:

  • Mirrorless camera
  • Full size [full frame, editor’s note]
  • Wi-Fi · Bluetooth installed
  • Maximum image size of test machine: 6240 × 4160 [makes up to 26MP, editor’s note]
  • Probably will be released within 1 year data as 5D Mark IV [K349], the image size may be a dummy possibility)

As fas as we know this camera has not yet been released. On the other hand, the poorly translated “image size may be a dummy possibility” might also mean there is no 26MP full frame mirrorless camera on Canon’s agenda. This is not the first time a 26MP sensor suggestion comes up, but there was some confusion about the denomination. So, it looks the Canon EOS RP might have a 26MP sensor. The announcement is on February 14.

Any help appreciated, sound off in the comment section.

More Information About The Upcoming Canon EOS RP

Canon Eos Rp

Nokishita leaked that the upcoming Canon EOS RP will feature the LP-E17 battery, the same used on some entry level Canon DSLRs and on the EOS M5 and EOS M6.

This gives some credit to yesterday’s rumor about the specifications of the EOS RP. The information about the EOS RP being light weighted is enforced by the information of the battery that’s used.

It might also mean that the EOS RP will have a smaller form factor.

Also leaked today, a new image of the RF 70-200mm lens (on top).

Are These The Canon EOS RP Specifications? [CW2]

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

A list of specifications for the upcoming Canon EOS RP full frame mirrorless camera emerged from the web.

We expect Canon to make a major mirrorless related announcement on February 14, 2019. Five upcoming RF lenses have already leaked.

We know (now) that the EOS RP will be an entry level model in the EOS R line-up, these are the suggested specifications:

  • Camera weight is 400g, the lightest full-frame mirrorless camera ever
  • A side-articulated monitor and a comfortable grip
  • A new 24MP CMOS sensor. Expect the performance similar to EOS R
  • No Touch Bar and top monitor but an extra dial
  • 5FPS
  • Standard ISO 100-40000
  • Eye AF now supports Servo AF and Video AF
  • Dual Pixel AF speed is 0.05 sec.
  • USB-C and headphone jack are available. Battery charging while shooting issupported
  • Canon Log, HDMI clean output, and 1.56x 4K crop
  • Price is about $1300USD for body (We’re really hoping it’s priced this aggressively)

Take this with a grain of salt. It looks legit but we have no confirmation. Some of the stuff above looks to good for an entry level full frame mirrorless camera made by Canon. Our information about the price differs, we have been told the EOS RP will sell at $1,600.

Stay tuned…

Canon’s Next EOS R Model Is Entry Level, Costs $1600, And Has One Card Slot, Announcement Feb 14

Canon Eos R

Canon’s next full frame mirrorless camera will most probably not be a high resolution model as we wrote. It will be a competitively priced entry level model.

A good source told us it will sell at $1,600, and have one card slot, which is to expect at this price. The moniker EOS RP is most likely.

So far we do not have more specifications to share but I’m sure more information will show up soon.

Stay tuned.
