After launching the EOS R a few months back, Canon has today launched its EOS RP mirrorless camera in India. The newly launched Canon EOS RP is a part of the R series and is a mirrorless camera that comes equipped with a full-frame image sensor.
We should mention that Canon EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera is relatively more affordable than the company’s more expensive R camera and at the same time, it comes with an array of features that will make photography-fans love it. Here’s a look at price and specifications of the newly launched Canon EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera:
Canon EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera price
The price of Canon EOS RP mirrorless camera in India is Rs 1,10,495. However, this price is for body-only and if you buy the 24-105mm kit lens along with the camera, it would cost you Rs 1,99,490. The camera will be competing with the likes of A7 Mark 3, Nikon Z7 mirrorless cameras and Nikon Z6.
Canon EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera specifications
Coming to the specifications of the newly launched gadget, it has a 26.2-megapixel full-frame image sensor and is capable of recording 4K videos and has features like eye autofocus and dual-pixel autofocus. The camera uses an RF mount for lenses, however, the number of lenses available for the mount is not too many as of now. But then, Canon is offering an adapter that can be used to put EF and EF-S lenses on EOS RP mirrorless camera.
One of the main highlights of the device is its weight and dimensions. Canon EOS RP mirrorless camera weighs 440 grams and hence, is lighter than any other full-frame DSLR by Canon. This adds on to the portability of Canon EOS RP and makes it easier for the user to carry it around.
We should mention that while Canon and Nikon led the high-end digital cameras’ market for two decades, they were rather slow to join the mirrorless camera race. Sony, on the other hand, started launching mirrorless cameras a little early. It was actually Sony’s success with its A series that led Nikon and Canon to get away from DSLRs and foray into mirrorless camera category.
