A first look and initial specs for the Canon EOS RP have leaked. Here’s what we know so far…

Canon camera rumors have really been swirling around a lot lately. Along with the five new RF lenses leaked earlier this week, we’ve been hearing about both a possible 8K EOS R as well as a new cheaper prosumer option - which looks to be this Canon EOS RP.

Regardless of quotes from Canon Group president Fujio Mitarai regarding Canon shifting away from consumer cameras in the future, new leaks revealing this new Canon EOS RP includes some of the first images, specs and a possible price point.

As you can see in the image above, the Canon EOS RP looks pretty similar to the Canon EOS R but is set to include a confirmed 26.2MP sensor. Via leaked information from Nokishita, some key confirmed features include:

“We have been able to confirm the canon “EOS RP” at the moment. SKU is “3380c001”. “DS126751” of radio wave certification. The model ID is “K433”. Kit with 24-105MMUSM kit and Mount Adapter kit. 26.2 million pixel full-size sensor. Battery “LP-E17.” Supports external grip “EG-E1”

Along with the following full list of specs.

  • 26.2 Million Pixels Full Frame Sensor

  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF

  • DIGIC 8

  • Continuous shooting performance: 5 frames / sec

  • ISO sensitivity: 100 to 40000 (equivalent to extended ISO: 50, 51200, 102400)

  • OLED EVF

  • 3.0 type touch panel variable angle liquid crystal

  • Dual Sensing IS

  • DLO in camera, RAW development in camera, C-RAW compatible

We’ve also been teased with a rumored initial price point for the Canon EOS RP being at either $1,599 or even $1,499 (via Canon Rumors) for the body only.

Which, if true and once confirmed, should put the EOS RP a good $700 to $800 cheaper than the current Canon EOS R and in a more competitive position against the crowded 4K full frame mirrorless marketplace.

Video? If they shift away from consumer products... they will be bankrupt within a year.

I'm waiting for this camera to go on sale. I love to travel and plan my second trip to Savannah in a year. I am delighted with wild animals, tiger tours and incredible nature. This Camera will be able to transfer to Savannah in all colors

While I love my Sony A6000, it does sometimes feel hard to use and still have a hard time with the menus. I still haven't ditched my old Canon 60D either, but Canon cameras just have a really easy user experience. Would be nice to see them step their game up.

I'm really curious to see how it'll fare with video. I'm in need of a new camera right now: something that'll won't break the bank, still allows an adapter for my EF lenses, and produces great images for projects. Too much to ask? I guess we'll see.
