Compared to? 6D series are also 1/180. 5D series are 1/200. The smaller curtained APS-C mid & high-range xD & xxD are 1/250.
This was one on the few reasons I didn’t buy the 6D2 when it launched. Shooting in a studio most weeks with my ageing 1D4 at 1/200 for 9 years and then having to drop back down to 1/180.

However, if the price is right at 1299 USD it is good buy, I think. It doesn’t seem long ago since I bought my EOS R I can’t help thinking the RP is a lot better value on launch than the EOS R, but I’m loving my EOS R anyway so guess it doesn’t matter in that case.

To slow sync speed to freeze action? Uhh, no... flash freezes action, the 1/250 or 1/180s doesn’t freeze nothing.

I use HS outside to freeze action with shutter speed or flash duration indoors to freeze action. Sync is just sync speed. If you can’t get it dark enough at 1/180s it isn’t dark enough with 1/250s either.

Regards to battery life. It says 250 shots on these tiny batteries . The 6dii with live view was rates for 210 on the larger battery. I hope we see at least 500 shots per battery in the real world. Nothing a battery grip can't fix. And might actually make it feel better in hands if that's an issue.

There's Canon. And there are other Cameras.

Speed = 30-1/4000 sec (1/2 or 1/3 stop increments), Bulb (Total shutter speed range. Available range varies by shooting mode)

Sync speed = 1/180

Hmm.

That is A LOT of camera for the projected price, especially if they're packaging it with an adapter. I can't help but think that this is squarely aimed at moving APS-C DSLR users into RF mount bodies. I would bet that there isn't much of a margin on this and the investment is in building their user base in RF mount FAST.

Why does the 4K only have 25FPS?

EOS RP MP4:
4K (16:9) 3840 x 2160 (25, 23.98 fps) IPB 120Mbps / 869 MB/min


The EOS R Has both 30 FPS for ALL-I and IPB.

EOS R:
4K 3840 x 2160: 29.97fps/24.00fps/23.98fps, ALL-I: 480Mbps, 3444 MB/min.
4K 3840 x 2160: 29.97fps/24.00fps/23.98fps, IPB: 120Mbps, 860 MB/min.


Something strange is going on as the RP is rated for 869mb/s on IPB 25 FPS while the EOS R is rated for 860 mb/min at 29.97 fps. They both have the exact same processor and UHD 4K is UHD 4K even on a different sensor.

What's going on here?

Things I noticed: Top shutter speed 1/4000 (ok given the price segment), X-Sync 1/180 (still ok), 4k output over HDMI (nice), RP doesn't mean cheap plastic because damn baby it's magnesium alloy, weather-sealed as well!
Those two specs surprised me the most too! Definitely wasn’t expecting magnesium!

Is the 4K recording truly limited to 24P (or 25P for PAL)? I’m missing something, right? I’ve never seen 30P omitted from a camera before—but I don’t see it listed in the specs?

locked out to offer more distinction between R and RP. No C Log or 10bit output either. But 8bit 422 coming out uncompressed from a Canon for $1299 is still good.

What???
I wish we could just have a board where all these same arguments/question are answered and people could just link there in stead of bringing it up and answering every single time.

The R is rated for 350 shots, I easily get 700 in the cold weather over two weeks or so. I would get 1500 if shot in one day in the summer .

I checked and this limitation is mentioned amongst the M50 specs.
So yes, here, it hasn't been disabled.

A more complete overview on the video specs:
Internally everything is IPB codec

-4k 24p/30p is in APS-C mode (probably 1.6x)
-1080p 24p/30p can be shot in FF or APS-C mode as well, the latter is much crisper as it is downsampled (but worse rolling shutter), like on the EOS R or 1D C.
-1080p 50p/60p will be selectable only in FF mode, just like the EOS R (one cannot use EF-S lenses for 50p/60p recording)

FF 1080p quality may be the same as the 6DII or improved


Battery life will be worse than an M5(smaller sensor, same battery) and almost the same as the M50 (smaller sensor, even smaller battery).
I use an EOS M5 mostly for low res video work and have two of the LP-E17 batteries that we are told will be used in the RP, they do last very well, I’d say longer than Canon actually state.

They are very light, take up very little room in your camera bag or are easily carried around in your pocket when on location.

We know the RP isn’t a pro camera although I’m sure in the right hands and used for certain types of photography the end result could very well look like it was produced by a professional. It’s a tiny body which will appeal to a lot of people so I guess that is why Canon opted for the smaller battery.

Now I would love to see some small RF lens being announced soon, such as a fastish (F2 or even F1.8 would be nice) 24mm Pancake lens if that is possible on FF or an 85mm F1.8 (IS would be nice too) the key being to keep the weight and size minimal.

Bigger lens such as EF 24-70 F2.8 or EF 70-200 2.8 IS I’m ok with using the adaptor on these as they are not compact to start.

For 20 years I’ve shot with big cameras equipped with heavy glass but now it is possible to get great results with small and compact, so that is my preferred route or am I just getting old lol

Are you positive? Because that doesn’t sound possible. Video is shot in 30P. All standards are based off that. The camera would be incompatible with almost any other video production.

The only reason people shoot at 24P is for a “cinema look,” but in reality that’s not what’s used because of its limitation in movement and all sort of other ways.

I’d have to hear it from Canon to believe it.
