Canon EOS RP Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera Is Coming: Leaked Information Including Specs & Photos Emerge

Simon Skinner - 6 months ago

The follow-up from the largely well-received Canon EOS R Full-Frame Mirrorless camera, the Canon EOS RP, is due for official launch in the coming days. Ahead of this, we have a raft of leaked information, which gives us a good idea of what to expect when the big day comes.

We are expecting the new model, a more entry-level extension to its mirrorless offerings, to join the existing EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera and expect to see a 26.2-megapixel CMOS full-frame sensor, DIGIC 8 image processor, and Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus [AF] in amongst many more features.

The images and potential specs we’ve garnered from the Japanese website, Nokishita, suggests that the new camera will also feature Dual Sensing Image Stabilisation, the ability to capture five frames per second and an ISO range of 100 to 40000.

The leaked pictures expose a design that’s not dissimilar to the Canon EOS R, although with some notable variations. You’ll see a flip-out rear LCD screen/monitor, which we believe will measure 3″ and will allow for touch-control. We also believe that we’ll see an electronic viewfinder on the new Canon EOS RP.

Other features expected in the new model include an in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer [DLO] along with in-camera RAW development and C-RAW compatibility.
The overall model, without a lens, is expected to weigh 440 grams, but this could be without batteries.

A possible kit has been rumoured, with which we can expect to see an RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM lens, although pricing is still proving to be elusive at this point. That said, we expect, [with this being a more entry-level option] the price to be lower than the EOS R.
