Canon EOS RP Review: The Right Camera At The Wrong Time?

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

Close

The Canon EOS RP is one of the cheapest full-frame cameras you can get for your money in 2019. Featuring the latest technologies from Canon and using the new RF-Mount, the EOS RP certainly has a lot going for it.

But how is it?

We’ll just say this. It’s more suited for photography, than for videography. If you’re looking for the best hybrid camera, look elsewhere. But… if you really want that Canon colors, that Dual Pixel AF, and simply, arguably the best selection of lenses in the world, well, perhaps this might be the next camera for you.

Sony needs to up it's game . That 28-70 f/2 lens is a beast. Sony should now start to diverge from the standard zooms into making some spectacular zooms.

George Livanos says:

Congratulations on your channel and this review of the RP. . You have personality and a strong presence in front of the camera. And you speak in a passionate manner which shows you love photography.. So much tumbleweed to be found on youtube, but your channel seems like the real deal.. Good luck.

Eric Mills says:

Nice review, I think I may be the pro-sumer this camera is for. My previous camera was the Cannon 80D. I wanted to go full frame but didn't want to break the bank. I've been really pleased with the RP. I love full frame and I can use my EF lenses. Also I'd rather spend my money going forward with RF glass. The price was right for me and if I want to spend slot of money on RF glass going forward I know I can use that in future Cannon cameras.

Golden Calf says:

I think Canon are attempting a pincer movement on Sony. They're targeting the pros with their high end lenses and promises of a pro body in the future. They've got the budget consumers covered with this cheap body and easy adaptation to EF glass. They're also using the R and RP as market research tools to see what features to include and leave out of the pro body. Time will tell if this strategy is successful.

rlfisher says:

Call me crazy (my friends do), but I upgraded from the 70D to this rather than the 6DII. Every piece of gear has its compromises. This gave me a budget path to full frame as well as access to the beautiful RF glass.

Dmitry Brodsky says:

Bobby Great review. Having owned EOS R and EOS RP I totally agree with you on jpegs. RP has some of the most pleasing jpegs to my eye, out of many cameras I have owned. Just gorgeous. Definitely more pleasing than jpegs out of R. Another problem is if you use Lightroom, for some odd reason Adobe decided not to provide camera matching profiles for RP raw files. Not clear why. Adobe has it for every other camera but RP. And Adobe own profiles they do offer do not match Canon ones at all. So you pretty much need to shoot jpegs if you use Lightroom. Or use DPP. I don’t shoot jpeg generally but was forced to with RP. The autofocus tracking was similar to R which is not matching modern cameras from Sony Fuji or even Nikon z. But the small size of RP has charm especially if matched with 35 1.8RF which is the lens that should have been a kit for RP.

Ian Cassanova says:

Totally agree with you, solid review.

Namit Sharma says:

I absolutely love your reviews sir

Sepehr Hossein Nejadi says:

How do you compare the 50mm to the lumix s pro 50 and leica summilux 50?

Rick Mentore says:

This is a fantastic second camera if you are a wedding shooter, a cool vlogging camera and a bold intro to mirrorless full frame.

MR George says:

I like this guy . Passionate . Good talker . Even Funny a bit ( oversized lens cap 😉 .
I wanted to buy canon eos R just because of that 50mm 1.2 but the 20mp sensor is a joke . Went with lumix 1sr and their magnificent 50 though so stupidly ugly outside . lens which looks like zoom with all the bumps and ridges .
Can’t wait to see another vid . https://www.instagram.com/george_newman_toronto/
