Dustin Abbott reviews the EOS RP

Dustin Abbott has completed his EOS RP review recently and generally liked the camera, noting it's well known faults surrounding video performance and sensor dynamic range.


  • Beautifully compact yet fully functional body
  • Inexpensive price for a full frame camera
  • Excellent grip and overall ergonomics (no gimmicks!)
  • RF lenses are excellent, and EF lenses work perfectly via adapter
  • Excellent autofocus system
  • Articulating touchscreen works great
  • Canon color
  • Includes intervalometer


  • Video performance not competitive
  • No DPAF in limited 4K mode
  • Poor shadow recovery
  • Burst rate is not at all competitive

His conclusion;

Like most of Canon’s recent camera releases, the Canon EOS RP is a mixed bag.  In some ways I am more inclined to be charitable to it, as I enjoy enjoying the camera due to have wonderfully familiar ergonomics and that it fits the hand so much better than many competitors and because the price point is so reasonable.  For these reasons I suspect a lot of people will end up buying an EOS RP.  I certainly would choose it over a Canon 6D Mark II for the simple reason that the autofocus system is better by orders of magnitude and the new RF lenses (while expensive) have been excellent.  The seamless experience in using EF lenses via the Canon adapters is also compelling.
