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.

Can The Canon EOS RP Compete With The Sony A7III?

Sony A7iii

The Slanted Lens compares what they call “the cheapest new full-frame mirrorless camera on the market”, the Canon EOS RP, with what they call “the best full-frame camera on the market“, the Sony A7III.

Not sure if the EOS RP and the A7III are in the same league, the former being an entry level camera and the latter not. The Canon EOS RP had a good start in Japan but the Sony a7III is now outselling all its four closest competitors combined.

Canon EOS RP Review (worth the money, The Phoblographer)

EOS RP at a glance:

  • 26.2MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • UHD 4K and Full HD 1080 Video
  • 2.36m-Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder
  • 3″ 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD

  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Connectivity

The Phoblographer reviewed Canon’s latest, entry level full frame mirrorless camera, the EOS RP.

From their conclusion:

There is a lot to like the Canon EOS RP. It’s a simple and fun camera if you’re more inclined to the world of automation. But even so, with the right settings and a bit of patience it can be a great camera in the hands of someone who has a creative vision. You’ll just need to take your time with it. The Canon EOS RP is also really, stupidly affordable. With a full frame sensor at the heart, it’s going to appeal to anyone that says “Oh well full frame is better.”

The Canon EOS RP also has reliable autofocus in all types of lighting. It isn’t the fastest but it works. We also never really had any issues with missed focus providing the subjects were still. Combine this with the metering that lends itself to Sunny 16 well and the ease of use, and you’ve got a pretty darned good camera at least for fun.

The Phoblographer’s real world review of the EOS RP comes with a large set of sample pictures.
