With the new Canon EOS RP, Canon has added the second RF mount camera to its lineup. It’s the lightest and least expensive Canon full frame camera ever, and it has some promising specs. However, judging from the first impressions videos, filmmakers and other video content creators aren’t exactly pleased with the latest Canon mirrorless.
Canon has now officially announced the new 26.2MP Canon EOS RP full frame mirrorless camera, doubling their RF mount camera lineup to 2. The new camera is a fairly basic entry level body, but not only does it set a new standard for full frame entry level mirrorless, but it’s also the lightest and least expensive full frame camera that Canon has ever made, costing a mere $1,299.
The buzz regarding a possible new entry-level Canon RF mount mirrorless camera has been getting quite intense over the last few days. And now, just the evening before an official announcement is expected, the entire spec sheet seems to have leaked.
Thanks to Amazon UK jumping the gun, we also have some idea of the price, too, with the basic model and EF to RF lens adapter costing £1,300 and US kits rumoured to start as low as $1,299.
Published by Nokishita, the images show a body that seems significantly smaller than the existing Canon EOS R, suggesting that it won’t be the super high-resolution pro body that many have been expecting. The specs, too, also seems to suggest that this is the lower end model that was rumoured back in November.
