Canon India has added today one more camera to its EOS R range of full frame interchangeable-lens mirrorless cameras and launched today Canon EOS RP camera at an event in New Delhi.
The EOS RP is equipped with the RF lens mount introduced in the EOS R. The RF mount sports a short flange focal distance of 20mm and was designed with the intention to allow more possibilities in lens design and innovation. Existing EOS users would be able to utilize their existing collection of EF and EF-S lenses using the optional mount adapter.With the Feature Assistant, new users would be able to easily navigate while experienced users would be better poised to make full use of each feature to produce better images
This camera is driven by Canon’s advanced DIGIC 8 image processor for delivering superb image quality in any situation. Its Auto Lighting Optimizer feature balances the brightest and darkest point to accentuate the details of the images to deliver a well exposed image, even in backlit conditions
The EOS RP is armed with a 26.2-megapixel Full-Frame CMOS sensor to capture vivid images with crisp details. Its native ISO range of 100-40,000, which can be expanded to ISO range of 50-102,400, produces low-noise images with rich details, even in low light conditions
The Dual Sensing IS of the EOS RP that detects camera shakes from its gyroscopic sensor and the CMOS sensor provides Image Stabilization that allows user to capture images at shutter speed of up to five stops slower, most useful especially in low-light situations
The in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer corrects aberrations, diffraction and optical distortions as you shoot, producing excellent image quality right out of the camera
It is also equipped with the Dual Pixel CMOS AF that provides a smooth and lightning fast autofocus speed up to 0.05 seconds. The users will be free to create unique compositions without worrying about the focus, using the 4,779 selectable AF positions within the expanded AF area that covers approximately 100% vertically and 88% horizontally of the frame. The minimum AF luminance of EV-5 of EOS RP provides accurate focus even in poorly lit conditions.
The Eye Detection AF which even works in Servo AF mode will detect and ensure that the subject’s eye is always in focus even at wide open aperture, especially useful when the subject is moving. When in situations which require minimum disturbance, like shooting intimate moments during a wedding ceremony, in museums or simply to capture candid expressions of people without being intrusive, the camera’s silent mode enables users to shoot in stealth, without the sound of a shutter release.
The EOS RP shoots in 4K resolution at 24p/25p video footage allowing users to focus accurately and shoot smoothly. With Touch & Drag AF, users can create pull-focus effects and also enable focus transition simply by moving their finger from one to another part of the frame on the LCD screen
This camera is lightweight and weighs only 485 grams and built significantly smaller, the EOS RP is easier to handle, especially for users who are new full-frame cameras. For users with larger hands, an optional Extension Grip (EG-E1) comes in handy to ensure firmer handling
EOS RP’s Vari-angle touch screen LCD screen offers users the opportunity to shoot from unusual angles and to try out unique framing. Armed with a customisable electronic viewfinder (EVF) that provides 100% coverage, EOS RP’s EVF displays accurate details through its 2.36million dots OLED display, especially useful when working under bright glaring
Apart from charging the batteries with the included external charger, the EOS RP can be quickly charged directly with using the optional USB Power Adapter PD-E1, in a speedy manner through its Hi-Speed (USB 2.0/ Type C) Interface
This camera has connectivity options of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology.
Users can perform any network-related functions by utilizing Canon Camera Connect app designed for mobile devices. When paired, the automatic data transfer function can send photos to users’ smartphone simultaneously while they are still taking photos. This helps with photos management without having to manually transfer images after shooting.
