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.

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

Canon Rebel SL3

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
  • 9-Point AF System; Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • ISO 100-25600
  • 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.

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

Canon Eos Rp

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
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF, 4779 AF Points
  • ISO 100-40000, Up to 5 fps Shooting
  • 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.

Canon EOS RP Review (gets a lot right, DPReview)

Canon Eos Rp

DPReview completed their full Canon EOS RP review. They gave the Canon EOS RP an 83% score and a silver award.

Funny fact: DPReview learned they had “to create a new scoring category [since] this is the first camera to really fall into the ‘Entry-level Full Frame Camera’ space”. Well, a “kudos Canon” wouldn’t have been displaced.

From their conclusion:

The biggest trade-off comes from the 26.2MP full-frame sensor. Sure, with the right lenses, that large sensor gets you access to shallower depth-of-field (blurrier backgrounds) than cameras with smaller sensors. But when shooting in Raw, the RP’s images are also noisier than most current full-frame cameras, and similarly noisy to some APS-C cameras. The video features and quality will also disappoint power users, and the battery life is perhaps best described as ‘tolerable.’ It’ll get you through a day of heavy shooting, provided you turn the camera off between shots.

On the other hand, there’s a lot that the EOS RP gets right. The combination of pleasing JPEGs, an excellent grip, light weight, good controls, strong connectivity options and compact size is just a recipe for fun. The autofocus system is reliable, and Pupil Detection makes it easier to get perfectly focused portraits – though some competitors’ eye-focusing systems are more effective.
