The Canon EOS RP was officially announced yesterday (or today for some folks) and has received a pretty positive reception. Canonites are a passionate bunch and I’ve been very impressed with the reception that EOS RP has received.
Imaging Resource had a chance to sit down with Canon execs to talk all things Canon EOS RP.
Some questions we think a lot of you want answers to?
The 26.2mp sensor is the exact same sensors that appeared in the EOS 6D Mark II. Some adjustments to the microlenses were needed for light angles and things like that, but everything else is identical. The DIGIC 8 processor in the EOS RP is the exact same as any other DIGIC 8 processor as well.
Canon also paid particular attention to the build quality of this little camera. The magnesium alloy and plastic construction was a big part of the development. They wanted it to feel great in your hands.
