The Olympus mju-II / Stylus Epic is a highly-coveted film camera thanks to its sharp 35mm F2.8 lens, great metering/AF and pocketable/weather-sealed body. But these days the cost of one is just too darn high!Both are excellent cameras, for their respective target buyers, although neither are state-of-art in terms of specification or performance..
. The two cameras actually have a lot of differences under the hood, both minor and major, in everything from autofocus to sensor characteristics. The EOS R comes out ahead of the EOS RP in most respects – but at $2200, is it worth the difference in price?What's the bid deal with geotagging anyway? I understand if you are doing things like surveys, or photographing evidence in accident investigations, but for leasure shooting, why the overwhelming need to have it? You may have already made your decision about which camera suits better for your needs and your budget so far but in case you wonder how we rated Canon R and Canon RP, below you can find their scores in five different aspects. Our Decision Algorithm dynamically scores cameras using 63 different specs, current price and DxO Mark scores (where possible) in order to make a more objective and consistent comparison.
PS. and off topic. It is better to comment in English here, I also don’t bother people here with my mother tongue. Here we are comparing two Mirrorless cameras by Canon. Canon R was introduced to market in September 2018 and Canon RP was launched in February 2019. There is only 7 months difference between R and RP so we are expecting this to be a fair comparison regarding age and technology level. Both cameras can capture video footage in 4K and Full HD quality, although there are differences elsewhere. Canon R and Canon RP have almost the same sensor size so none of them has any significant advantage over other in providing control over depth of field when used with same focal length and aperture.
In contrast, the RP summary includes "very good Dual Pixel AF system" ignoring the latter's downsides compared to the 6DII (as listed above). Yes, the RP is a bit smaller but a 280g weight advantage shrinks to a 64g weight advantage once an adapter and the recommended "couple of spare batteries" are included. Given the size of the RP's lenses, the small body is much more an ergonomic liability than an advantage.If you’re a casual photographer who wants a usable JPEG right form the camera and doesn’t care as much as editing flexibility, the RP won’t let you down. But if you prefer to put as much work into retouching your photos as you do in taking them, the R will give you more room to play around. *1 Depending on [Minimum] and [Maximum] of [ISO speed settings] or [Range for stills]. *2 If outside the range set for ISO Auto, the value nearest ISO 400 is used.
Search for crop factor on Canon apsc Kameras. Your 24 mm lens behaves more like a 24 * 1,6 = 38,4 mm lens. * Based on CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards. Testing performed using the EOS R mirrorless camera at a focal length of 240mm. The number of stops may vary based on the camera model used. Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day. Canon RP is significantly lighter (175g ) than the Canon R which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
The Canon EOS RP and 6D Mark II share for all intents and purposes the same image sensor. Of course the major differences is, is one's a mirrorless camera and the other is a DSLR. This video is to. This is a fantastic choice for compact use travel use. Batteries are very cheap, no issues there at all. Also good for day to day family use in out and about town. (not so much for sports use, but indoor use should be okay, especially with 35mm f1.8 lens, and the iso is still pretty decent with a kit lens option as 6400 iso looks good and bit beyond. My 77D apsc cameras takes very good 6400 iso this should be even better with RP or 6Dii sensor.Using a USB charger has the advantage that one can use the camera while charging a spare battery in the car, for instance. USB charging support on a camera sounds convenient but implies that the camera is unavailable for normal use during charging.@entoman- if you are willing to use a less well corrected prime or a slower one, you can get a small lens. The laws of optics dictate the size of the lenses. Electronics can be made more compact. But you can’t change how light rays bend.Photo medium - still struggling to own your own behaviour, still weakly trying to justify yourself as a ritious commentator and missing the irony of your last remark. This is, and never has been about canon cameras, it’s about you and your misplaced sense of superiority that does you no justice. So you don’t rate canon cameras, fine, but please don’t think that those you do are fair game for junior school playground jibes and taunts. You are simply under estimating a lot of people and over valuing your own ideas.
As you can see, the EOS RP is significantly shorter than the EOS R, in large part because the viewfinder area is not as tall. However, the grip on the EOS R is also noticeably taller than that of the EOS RP. It makes sense that Canon would ship the RP with a small extension grip included; if it did not, some photographers would undoubtedly find the grip uncomfortable.0 Reply Jacques CONDEMINE March 5, 2019 6:45 amPas un mot sur l’absence du flash. Si on veut déboucher les ombres, le flash ajouté augmente le poids de l’appareil. The folks over at Mirrorless Comparison posted a pretty exhaustive comparison between the Canon EOS R and the Canon EOS RP.As far as I know this is the first serious EOS R vs EOS RP comparison review. Most of you likely know that the image sensors of the EOS R and EOS RP are derived form the image sensors found in the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS 6D Mark II, respectively Fujifilm X-T3, Canon EOS-R, Leica M10 are all examples of what I'd call "stylish". Panasonic S1R, Canon 5DMkiv, Nikon D850, Sony a7Riii are examples of what I'd call "plain". Pentax and Olympus are what I'd call "unattractive". Hasselblads are what I'd call "over-the-top-ridiculous". Sigma, I'd call "ugly".Grapejam, I really like these two.

@entomanYes, it doesn't make much sense to me either. I mean those big, heavy, professional RF L lenses on small, consumer camera body.But it doesn't mean that we need to go APS-C for smaller size. That's a silly non-logic and stupidity. Equivalent optics are the same size on both formats. All I want are some decent, new, compact FF F1.8/F2/F2.8 RF primes and a proper reasonably priced camera with modern features (or at least cutting down the EOS R price by $500-600). There's absolutely no need for EOS M remake.It is not insecurity that made me comment, and of course DPR (and NPR) have freedom of the press. We also all have freedom to express feedback in comments. I wrote that "which one is right for you?" is not a good title. How about "Is one right for you?". I see from the comment above that I missed the Nikon D500 vs D750 - which one is right for you? article. If I had seen that one, I probably would have posted a similar comment back then.Mr Grape: 2 stops is no problem for 6d2. Question is do you want to? Your second pic demonstrates what I mean with pushed shadows - skin colour is just awful...It's hard to put a finger on it. Most people fairly quickly adapt to a new brand once they make the switch, but some brands just seem to feel "right" in the hands, and have appealing styling, while others just don't have that same user-friendliness.
A wireless remote controller compatible with Bluetooth enabled cameras for wireless focusing, still shooting and video recording, and zooming using the Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E1. Operating distance is approximately 16 ft in any direction. Looks like the k1 and the 6d are the only ones new that are under 2G and have GPS. Or a used alpha 99. OP should just get one of these, and a small lens. It will be heavier, but not actually more awkard than the eos RP due to the lens. Neither the RP or a 6D/K1 will be coat pocket able with a zoom lens. Neither camera is intended for professional sports photography, but they should both handle less demanding action scenes, such as what you’ll find when photographing your kids or pets or a live event like a wedding reception.
Both the RP and R do offer electronic stabilization in video mode which, especially when matched with a stabilized lens, can produce smooth handheld shots. The problem is that, like all electronic stabilization systems, this crops the frame and produces footage that isn’t as sharp.With its unusual form factor can the Tourbox aid the editing process? Will its price and variety of tactile controls appeal to photo and video editors who would like to streamline their workflow?
Most buyers of the RP are likely to be novices with restricted budgets and no need for wide aperture glass.One of the most surprising aspects of the EOS RP is just how petite Canon has managed to make it. With dimensions of just 132.5 x 85 x 70mm, it's a whole lot smaller than the 135.8 x 98.3 x 84.4mm of the EOS R.
While cameras are recognizable as being from the same system, they do differ in design in some significant ways. The RP is smaller and lighter — it’s actually the lightest full-frame interchangeable lens camera on the market — but still has a fully-articulating screen, just like the R. On the user interface side, it also offers the Feature Assistant and Creative Assist modes found on Canon’s entry-level cameras that help guide new photographers through the various shooting modes and settings in a simple way.Now here is a top view (also to scale) to demonstrate the control differences between these two mirrorless bodies:Federal authorities are looking into an incident wherein a drone pilot flew far too close to the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels demo team during a flyover in Detroit, Michigan that was meant to be a tribute to the frontline workers handling the COVID-19 pandemic.
.photomedium - Well, as a happy Canon user for the last 8 years, I tried to steer away from that issue and present my argument as a generalisation! :-)Years back, Canon released the EOS 6D as its basic, 'entry-level' full frame DSLR to sit below the pro-oriented 5D-series. Not surprisingly, that was a recipe for success, with the 6D and follow-up 6D Mark II proving to be quite popular with all kinds of photographers.borderline embarassing to compare a new tech with 6D mark II. Either DPR is bored or canon paid enoughI don't find Canon cameras attractive to look at. I do find Nikon cameras attractive to look at. Fuji and Sony are pretty in a nostalgic way, but they lack the look of a modern functional photographic tool.
The full-frame mirrorless EOS R camera is the first in Canon's new EOS R system. With a new mount, a variety of dedicated lenses, full compatibility with EF/EF-S lenses* and significant achievements in handling and performance, the EOS R leads a new chapter in Canon's legacy of imaging excellence the RP 1080P video quality is much better than the 6DMk2. I know because I own both cameras. There is detail in far away objects where the 6D2 has a mushy look to distance objects. Building trees that sort of stuff.
The EOS R's 0.5-inch, 3.69 million-dot EVF is undoubtedly one of its finest features – its big, bright and clear, and makes scrutinizing fine details a doddle. We were hoping this would make the cut on the EOS RP too, although when you consider the camera's significantly cheaper asking price it's understandable that it should pack something a little more humble. 0 Reply toni February 16, 2019 11:33 amCanon want to compete with Sony A7 II: A cheap entry FF mirrorless camera.The Panasonic FZ1000 II is a worthy successor to the company's first large-sensor, long-zoom bridge camera, and a value-conscious rival to the popular Sony RX10-series. It's just as fast as its predecessor but produces nicer JPEGs, has significantly improved controls and interface, and more.
I would use it all the time on canoe trips, or when you are out driving around on backroads. When you have traversed and area the size of france in your jeep driving around all summer taking photos, its not exactly easy to remember exactly where you were when you took it, nor do you always have cell service (I assume GPS works without cell service?). The EOS R features a higher-resolution viewfinder that looks significantly better than the RP’s, a higher-resolution LCD screen, a secondary information display on top of the camera, and a more robust build quality that includes dust and moisture resistance. A bit of a controversial feature, it also has a touch slider on the back of the camera that can be customized for different controls. Not everyone loves this, but it’s a pretty unique feature of the camera. Perhaps more useful is the bigger battery, which offers 330 shots per charge compared to the RP’s 250. Neither number is particularly strong when compared to Canon’s DSLRs, but the R will definitely let you keep shooting longer than the RP.

For beginners or budget-minded photographers who want to live the full-frame dream, the Canon EOS RP provides an enticing entry point thanks to its low cost. Sure, it can’t match the EOS R for image quality or features, but many novices will be fine shooting in JPEG, where the RP excels, and doesn’t ask much of a camera’s video mode. If that sounds like you, get the RP and put the money you save toward a good lens.

Across the board – not just on camera bodies. It seems to me that the goods and services on offer to ‘togs these days are so close that the old days of sudden attacks of GAS and lusting after the “latest and greatest” are passing. Not suggesting there’s no point to it all. But for the life of me, I can’t see what I’d get out of flipping my D850 for a Z7. And you seem to be saying much the same about the choices in the Canon range. Same with lenses. Once we were taught zooms were poor optically, and primes were the thing – but good zooms these days produce results almost indistinguishable from primes. I’m even finding something similar with the various post processing programs on offer! Sigh – at last I can give up worrying about such things, and get back to actually using my gear, instead of talking about it!
Don't buy a camera that is too limited, choose one that will have features and performance that will still satisfy you in 3 or 4 years time.I already have the canon 6d which i like its photo but dont like its size and never used it on travel
Both cameras have Full frame sensors but Canon R has a 30.0 MP and Canon RP has a 26.0 MP resolution. Let's have a brief look at the main features of Canon R and Canon RP before getting into our more detailed comparison. Canon R Key Specs. Announcement Date: 2018-09-05. 30MP - Full frame CMOS Sensor. ISO 100 - 40000 ( expands to 50-102400 Batteries are very cheap to add 2 extra. No issue really and they are small and compact. Also reports are the batteries can last longer than advertised, if you put camera off when not using.
Another helpful feature, the EOS R series cameras can display lens information right in the viewfinder, making it easy to confirm the lens’s focal length without looking away from the subject at hand.@entoman - I agree with you that the shorter flange back distance (mount dia is the same as EF) allows designers more flexibility. You can use that to make a smaller size lens of the same optical quality as an EF lens, or a better corrected one that may be heavier and larger. Canon seems to have done the latter. The 35mm f/1.8 is a possible exception.Did anyone else see that tumbleweed crossing the road? Now I hear western music in the background. Somebody is about to die.
FWIW, you can use a location tracking feature in the canon connect app that uses your phone’s gps data to log photo locations on the camera when paired. It can drain your phone battery but it works just fine. Otherwise, the EOS R5 has a pretty deep grip, which will be useful when using it with longer lenses like the incoming Canon RF 100-500mm, and the same top-plate controls as the EOS R with a model. This is a more minor difference than some of the others here, but if you use wide-aperture lenses in bright light with any regularity, it may well be significant.Beyond specifications, the EOS R and EOS RP have surprisingly similar control layouts, with just a few important differences between them. Before I cover that, however, here is quick size comparison between the two cameras:The idea of the RF is to provide FF image quality in a simple, cheap and compact body. Issuing *only* heavy high grade glass is counter to this aim.

The 80D handles better than either the RP or the 6DMkii. It also has faster burst speed, and offers a narrower angle of view (with the same lens), which is often advantageous.You have been fooled by populistic false propaganda. No APS-C sensor comes close to FF. And yet everyone wants to sell crop cameras and lenses at FF prices or even higher.
This is where both cameras actually suffer from the same limitation, brought on by the complexities of Canon’s excellent but processor-intensive Dual Pixel Autofocus (more on that below). With continuous autofocus, the EOS R manages to eke out one more frame per second compared to the RP, but the burst rates of 5 and 4 fps, respectively, are far from class-leading. With autofocus locked, the R has a bigger advantage, capable of shooting at 8 fps where the RP tops out at just 5.Spencer Cox is a landscape and nature photographer who has gained international recognition and awards for his photography.

Both systems do, however, occupy the same stretch of the frame, namely 88% vertically and 100% horizontally.Now go tell Hollywood colorists that the colors in their movies are bad because the skin tones are sacrificed to fit the mood, please Mr. Expert with absolutely no photos, or should I say "gutless keyboard warrior" because that's exactly what you are? ;) The powerful Canon EOS R packs a lot of features into a compact mirrorless body, but the lower-cost EOS RP may be the better choice for some photographers. Here's how these two full-frame. But beyond DPAF, the thing that makes the EOS R a better video camera are the additional framerate options. It can shoot 4K at 30 or 24 fps, while the RP is locked at 24. It can also shoot 1080p at 24 fps, something the RP strangely can’t do (it can do 30 and 60 fps, however). If you want the cinematic look, you simply can’t get it on the RP unless you’re shooting in 4K mode — which comes with a host of issues like slow autofocus and a severe crop.ReviewsCamera ReviewsLens ReviewsOther Gear ReviewsLearnBeginner PhotographyLandscape PhotographyWildlife PhotographyPortraiturePost-ProcessingAdvanced TutorialsLensesLens IndexPhoto SpotsPhoto Spots IndexSubmit a Photo SpotForumAbout UsContact UsWorkshopsSubscribeSubmit ContentShopCartSupport UsSearchLog InSign Up Home → Cameras and LensesCanon EOS RP vs EOS RBy Spencer Cox 12 CommentsPublished On February 14, 2019
Average in specifications and performance definitely, but somehow more appealing to the average buyer than other brands.The major problem with Canon R mount is that it is too small for IBIS (in-body-image-stabilization). If this wasn't true, they would for sure integrate this feature from the start.Designed to quickly process data, the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM features a 12 pin communication system that is the fastest yet for a Canon lens/camera combination. This accelerates AF, Image Stabilization, the Digital Lens Optimizer and more, helping to simplify complex operations and provide a quick and reliable user experience.I agree with you all. Mirrorless just isn't there yet. Getting pretty close, except in terms of matching DSLR ergonomics. The whole "small and light" synonymy with mirrorless needs to stop. Never mind small and light, just make them good solid efficient tools like DSLRs. Plus, FF MILC being more expensive than their DSLR "equivalents" just doesn't fly. Won't be too long before MILC is advantageous likely in all aspects (unless one prefers OVF). But not yet...
0 Reply Marcel Reply to Jacques CONDEMINE June 15, 2019 6:19 amNowadays who needs a flash? Only in specific situations but then a external flash does a better job. Canon R is the overall winner of this comparison. It has a higher Overall Score and beats Canon RP in all criteria except one: Portability. But the size difference between these cameras are negligible in real world so it is not a big disadvantage for Canon R. No issues I own Canon m6 with the same batteries as RP. Extra batteries and charger are very cheap even new from third party. Take up little space in a bag with camera. Not a deal breaker. You want a compact camera the batteries have to be smaller than the larger bodies.
Carey - Looks fine to me, very handy for those who just want a quick but not overly detailed comparison. And the detailed reviews are excellent. Well done.RP+24-120mm f4 RF = 1,185g and $2,199RP+Adapter+STM = 1,120g and $1,699RP+Adapter+USM = 1,260g and as little as $2,068 (bundled body+adapter+tchotchkies, and separate bulk-packaged new lens with 1-yr. seller warranty)too many negative comments around dpr. most people here are only interested in the latest and greatest tech. ive used both sony and canon (love both) and im actually tempted by the RP cause of its lightweight and extremely low introductory pricing. the face focus looks surprisingly good enough to cope with my energetic baby (at least i hope). i would think majority of consumers live on a tight budget like me. just wished canon had more affordable native lens options for the RP. granted the 35/1.8 is a very good first lens release. hope canon follows up with a 24/1.8 (or 24/2) and a 50/1.8 with similar IS and macro capabilities.
Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs. In this section, We are going to illustrate Canon R and Canon RP side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. And that's exactly what we get: a 0.39-inch viewfinder with a 2.36 million-dot OLED panel. This is the same viewfinder that had been previously designed into the EOS M50, and one that can still very much hold its own.But it would be silly not to want to improve the technical quality of images by using better gear. Better gear means better AF, better optics and yes, better dynamic range.

I've tried the R a couple of times and I really like that camera (I'm also a huge fan of the RF24-105/4 lens too - great piece of optics!). From comparing dozens and dozens of test/sample images over the past couple of weeks, I can see I'll picking up the RP as my next camera.
Just want to share a small story of an amateur photographer, I am sure the professionals shall find the spec much more important.Canon E17 for RP Batteries are $48.90 at B&H Photo. Or you can buy third party batteries on Amazon.com for "UltraPro 2-Pack batteries of LP-E17" combo with fast USB charger for as little as $23.95 plus 11.95 shipping, if you are okay with buying off brand batteries (some people won't). So $40 total for 2 extra batteries and an extra charger. We are talking about a camera aimed at semi-pros in RP (which also can be used by pros), so having third party batteries should not be an issue with many. Sure, they may not hold as much power but who cares, they also will not damage the camera. I use both Canon batteries and SmilePowo batteries (from Amazon) for a year and no issues on my Canon 77D which uses same battery as RP, and the 3rd party holds at least 80 percent charge capable to expensive Canon E17. The battery level shows up on 77D. This battery also fits the Canon m6 which I also have. Why pay more when it isn't necessary? It is just a power supply.Canon's EOS RP may be small on the outside, but it's hiding a big 26MP full-frame sensor on the inside. We've been pushing forward with our full review and have updated our gallery with fresh shots, and have taken a look at how how it handles our studio test scene – see for yourself. Image Credit: Canon Canon's EOS R is a camera that's blessed with some highly impressive features, but at over £3,000 / $3,000 for the body alone it will only be the lucky few who get to appreciate them. However, Canon's announcement of a significantly cheaper alternative, the EOS RP, should open up its nascent R system to a much wider audience. Also, ever heard of "color grading", It is awful in the same way that most skin colors in movies are awful, Sometimes skin colors must be sacrificed to fit the mood of the medium. If the skin tone looks "typical pinkish" then the photo would look completely off.
We can all play the speculation game, my speculation is that things will be about the same in 2040. Why I think that is because Sony has put a huge effort in to building very good cameras like the A9 etc but that has not substantially changed the overall market share.Second pro photographers don’t waste their time on forums arguing about how good their preferred camera is or petty differences in scores and rankings. The brief is chose a tool that delivers according to requirement. Any modern FF can do that. So why bother fixing what is not broken?Ricoh has published a video setting out its development plans for new lenses, which include 85mm F1.4, 21mm F2.8 Limited, and 16-50mm F2.8 models.
I agree with OP assessment of GPS. If that is a feature you want at least sometimes, get a camera with it included. Why do extra work. Canon chose to drop the EOS R's M-Fn bar when designing the EOS RP, and also left out the multi-purpose dial from the top plate that works in conjunction with the small LCD to its right-hand side The DJI Mavic Air 2 is a Goldilocks drone. It's not the biggest or the smallest model out there, but it delivers just the right balance of size and features.And tomorrow I will change phone, and will update my OS version, and then I change the camera.And more, if this would work anytime, I need to remember to connect it every time!This approach has been going on for a few years now, it's time to face it: camera picture geotagging in pairing with the smartphone is a great failure.Likewise, the EOS RP's body-only weight of 440g without its body or memory card is 140g lighter than the EOS R, and even once you pop those into the body it still weighs an impressive 485g, as opposed to the EOS R's 660g.
Adrian - If you're on the fence, the best thing to do is to think ahead to exactly what type of subjects you photograph, and what your future requirements might be.At the same time, many of the differences between these two cameras are quite minor. 4779 versus 5655 autofocus points? Not a big deal. 0.7× versus 0.71× magnification viewfinder? Also doesn’t matter. Even the difference in sensor resolution is hardly a major point in the EOS R’s favor, since 26.2 megapixels and 30.4 megapixels are practically indistinguishable in practice (though other sensor characteristics, such as low light performance and dynamic range, could matter quite a bit).I was actually trying to look for an excuse why the skin colour is so terrible - you are right; it is not the shadow pushing; it is the camera :-)Nah, nothing to do with the camera,the skin tone SOOC Jpeg of that pic actually looks pinkish, I changed it so it suits the mood better.0 Reply Jason February 15, 2019 11:20 amAs long as they don’t name the next one EOS RIP, they should be OK.
Manufacturers just want you using their app so they can spy on you and monetize you. Screw that. I wan't GPS on the camera...if one must buy Canon get M50 Is it possible for M to use a metabone like focal reducer to use EF lens with almost same FL as FF ? Now that Canon has released its full-frame mirrorless EOS RP camera for just $1300, let's take a look at how it compares head-to-head against the Canon EOS R. The two cameras actually have a lot of differences under the hood, both minor and major, in everything from autofocus to sensor characteristics. The EOS R comes out ahead of the EOS RP. Battery is $61 each to add 2 extra sounds not so cheap,large frame hold has a comfort feel, turn off when camera not in use ? NA, too late to grip for a stunning scene .@TC999 Some do and some don't. Most of my third party batteries communicate with my cameras as well as my Canon batteries do.
Most of the top controls are very similar between these two cameras. In terms of differences, the EOS R has an additional top information panel, and an associated “illuminate” button. The other major difference is that the Canon EOS R has a “Mode” button within one of the command dials, while the EOS RP has a traditional PASM mode dial instead. The locking mechanism for the associated command dial is also different.This week, Jordan takes us behind the scenes of his short feature film, A Walk Down to Water.

Neither. I would not waste a penny on either of these antiquated travesties.If I was a photographer who wanted a professional sensor + functionality, I would buy the Nikon equivalent.If I was a metrosexual who wanted a non-camera, and to create my own useless Youtube presence, I would buy Sony.I will buy the RP to get access to the superb new RF lenses and to replace my 6d as a light and small travel kit AND get some nifty features such as focus stacking. The RP sensor has proved itself in the 6dii to be very capable in real life photography - I have seen some really superb images from it. The complainers and critics NEVER produce anything but test charts or severely underexposed test scenes to demonstrate their sensor's superior DR. I've said it a 100 times before, but show me an image which was elevated from mediocre to exceptional by pushing an extra stop of shadow detail (which seems to be the only metric the anti-Canon brigade here on dpreview is interested in) The RF mount on the EOS RP camera has a large, 54mm internal diameter - the same as the EOS R - enabling impressive handling and providing increased flexibility for lens design. Thanks to the camera's mirrorless design, the lens's rear element can be much closer to the image plane. This reduced back focus distance, combined with the RF mount's. The RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM lens incorporates a control/focus ring*** on the lens barrel that can directly adjust numerous settings including shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation and more. Located towards the end of the lens, the control/focus ring has a tactile, easily distinguished surface and provides tangible feedback for confident use while looking through the viewfinder. The RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM lens does not have the clicking mechanism as the previous RF lenses have, providing smooth focusing and exposure control while recording videos.But now we have the EOS RP, a new entry-level offering that is even more affordable and portable than the 6D's that came before it. So how do they compare for various kinds of shooting? Here's what we'll be covering – click the link to hop straight to the section of your choice.
However, there is a reason why the EOS R commands a higher price, and the differences between these two cameras certainly will matter for some photographers. For starters, the EOS R has Canon’s newer 30.4 megapixel sensor, while the RP’s sensor is an older generation 26.2 megapixel option that historically has not performed quite as well in terms of noise and dynamic range. Beyond that, the EOS R has a faster frame rate and higher video specifications, as well as better battery and higher-resolution screens. If you are a videographer or wedding photographer, for example, the EOS R’s benefits might be worth the extra price. For most other types of photography – especially if weight is a concern – go for the Canon EOS RF. It is one of the best values in full-frame cameras today, with a worthy feature set to help you capture photos of nearly anything you can think of.The only thing holding back my decision to buy an RP or 6Dii is the dynamic range. The iso advantage it there no doubt. I will hold on to my 24mp sensor in both my m6 small body and my 77D which have same sensor as 80D. This has much better dynamic range. And with fast glass I can improve iso ability. Apsc is not dead if it can perform well, and it still outsells FF anyway among consumers and prosumers and extra body for pros. Fast glass can improve low light, however dynamic range cannot be improved easily from blowing out highlights or losing detail in shadows. The new 24mm sensor from 80D, 77D and m6 is much better than older 18mp and great images to 1600 iso and even higher.
In 'Portrait of a Photographer', Jerry Ghionis and Joe McNally turn the cameras on themselves, using Nikon's Z 85mm F1.8 S. Take a look at the video and read an exclusive interview with Jerry. The Canon EOS R shoots at 8fps with the focus locked, and 5fps with the servo set to keep focus on your subject. 5fps is the Canon EOS RP's peak, dropping to 3fps with mid-shoot refocusing Most stills photographers would be using (and choosing) the 6DMkii *because* it has an optical viewfinder. The guys using live view will mostly just be landscapists and videographers.Class A - Yes, sure, you can judge exposure, WB and focus on the rear screen of a 6DMkii in live view, but that's extremely limiting.So how do you evaluate good enough and great with something missing? Sure great is having it all? Something missing is incomplete.0 Reply Roger West February 17, 2019 4:33 pmWe are always told that it is better to put good glass on a basic body than poor glass on a top of the range body. The basic RP with good glass follows that model. So far so good. But the silent mode, one of the advantages for street photography is only available in the scene modes not in aperture, shutter, or manual mode, which becomes a do not buy. Why does canon dislike silent mode so much that they insist on crippling it?
