Lightest, Smallest Full-frame EOS Camera*
For all their appealing features one of the concerns of using a full-frame camera has been its larger profile, however, the EOS RP is the lightest and smallest Canon EOS full-frame camera to date*. Weighing approx. 440g (body only) while being impressively compact and comfortable to use, the EOS RP is more convenient to carry, shoot with, and store than any previous EOS full-frame camera before.
Compatible with EF/EF-S Lenses**
Engineered to work seamlessly with RF lenses, the EOS RP also maintains complete compatibility with EF and EF-S lenses by using one of three optional Mount Adapters. When using EF-S lenses, the EOS RP even crops automatically to reflect the APS-C sized sensor the lenses are designed for.
26.2 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS Sensor
The EOS RP camera features a Canon-developed and produced 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approx. 26.2 effective megapixels. It employs the DIGIC 8 Image Processor to enhance the speed of operations across the board. This means fast, efficient performance and phenomenal image quality for big prints.
The EOS RP camera has a standard ISO sensitivity range of 100—40000 for stills and 100—25600 for video (100—12800 for 4K video shooting). Combined with the EOS RP camera's remarkable low-light AF performance, still and video shooting is possible even in dark situations.
Digital Lens Optimizer
The EOS RP camera has an in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer that works with RF lenses (and EF/EF-S lenses with a Mount Adapter) to provide a substantial improvement in image quality. The Digital Lens Optimizer limits deterioration in image quality caused by low-pass filters or wide-aperture lens designs. It's usable both during shooting and when developing RAW data, and does not affect continuous shooting speeds. Data from compatible EF and EF-S lenses is built into the camera, and data information from RF lenses is transferred near instantly through the EOS RP's 12 pin communication system.
Excellent Low-light Performance
Amazing for nighttime photography or in very low light, the EOS RP camera's brilliant AF can operate in light as dim as a light rating of EV -5*3 where other AF systems may fail or search. Phenomenal AF is achieved even when using lenses with high F numbers. This ultra-sensitive AF works in concert with the EOS RP's EVF to clearly capture subjects even when there's limited light.

f/11 Compatible in All AF Areas
The EOS RP camera's brilliant AF system doesn't just work with bright lenses. With the EOS RP, autofocus will operate over nearly the entire image area even when used with compatible f/11 lenses. For example, users can take ultra-telescopic 800mm shots using a compact EF 100-400mm f/4-5.6 IS II lens together with an EF 2x III extender, and AF will function properly over the entire field. When used with a III-type extender, the effective AF range is limited to an area roughly 88% x 100% of the total image frame, or 80% x 80% if combined with a I/II type extender.
Variety of AF Modes including Eye Detection AF
The EOS RP camera's Face+ Tracking mode helps enhance reliability for tracking moving subjects. When the camera detects a human face, it uses the subject's eye as the AF point, choosing the eye closest to the camera by default. Photographers can also select which eye to focus on by touching the screen or using the camera's AF point selection button and cross keys. Eye Detection AF can also be used in conjunction with Servo AF and Movie AF modes.
Among the EOS RP camera's manual focus aids, Focus Peaking helps establish the focus area quickly and clearly. With manual focus peaking, the outline of the area in focus is indicated by a colored line. Focus Peaking is usable in conjunction with the EOS RP's Focus Guide feature, and can be customized with peaking color and detection level specifications that fit the project at hand.
