Full-Frame Mirrorless Canon EOS RP Targets Beginners and APS-C DSLR Owners: Ultra-Lightweight, Super-Compact, 26.2 MP Sensor, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Eye Detection AF, Low-Light Rating of EV -5, 4K UHD Video, OLED EVF, Vari-Angle LCD Touchscreen, Creative Assist Mode

Canon execs got the memo: their current Canon DSLR owners want mirrorless and so, from the last major DSLR company that just a few months ago seemed to be still hedging their bets on mirrorless, come an entry-level, full-frame mirrorless camera — the EOS RP — “designed for photographers looking to step up from Canon’s APS-C [DSLR] cameras: the EOS Rebel, EOS M and the EOS 80D, into the world of full-frame mirrorless photography.

In the words of Kazuto Ogawa, the president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc., “As Canon continues to evolve its full-frame mirrorless cameras, our goal is that one day the EOS R line becomes as widely popular as our celebrated lineup of EOS DSLR cameras.

The Full-frame Canon EOS RP is about the same size (or even a bit smaller) than the popular APS-C EOS Rebel T7i, though currently more expensive, which is not surprising for first generation products.

Back in 1976, it was the Canon AE-1, an affordable full-frame first microprocessor-equipped SLR that sold over one million units. It etched the Canon brand forever into the minds of beginner photographers. With the EOS RP, Canon is returning to its winning marketing strategies.

This is gearing up to be a most interesting year for the acceptance and adoption of mirrorless cameras — and the beginning of goodbyes to DSLRs.

MELVILLE, NY, February 13, 2019 – Responding to the demand from amateur and advanced amateur photographers for an entry-level, full-frame mirrorless camera, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the second camera in the EOS R lineup, the EOS RP. The EOS RP is designed for photographers looking to step up from Canon’s APS-C cameras: the EOS Rebel, EOS M and the EOS 80D, into the world of full-frame mirrorless photography. Weighing in at just 17.29 ounces, the EOS RP camera is lighter than a 500ml bottle of water and smaller than Canon’s popular APS-C DSLR camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T7i, coming in at approximately 5.0in (w) x 3.77in (h) x 2.36in (d). With optics at its core, the EOS RP takes full advantage of the complete line up of RF lenses and is compatible with the existing collection of Canon’s EF and EF-S lenses with the use of one of three optional RF EOS-R Mount Adaptersi.

“As Canon continues to evolve its full-frame mirrorless cameras, our goal is that one day the EOS R line becomes as widely popular as our celebrated lineup of EOS DSLR cameras,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As a company, we believe that in order for us to accomplish that goal, Canon needs to develop full-frame mirrorless cameras for every skill level of photographers and that starts with amateurs and advanced amateurs. This makes the EOS RP the perfect addition to the existing lineup.”
