Canon DSLR Rumors

We’ve returned to the 26.2mp sensor in the EOS RP

Update: Here’s an updated specification list for the Canon EOS RP.

Our previous list of specifications for the Canon EOS RP mentioned an all-new 24mp sensor, which was a new bit of information, as certification agencies had previously mentioned a 26.2mp sensor for a full frame mirrorless camera.

Nokishita reports that “K433” is the Canon EOS RP and will have a 26.2mp image sensor, which would likely be recycled from the EOS 6D Mark II.

Canon “EOS RP” (Model ID K433)

  • SKU: 3380C001
  • Radio wave authentication DS126751.
  • Comes with: RF 24-105mm USM kit
  • Full frame sensor: 26.2 million pixels.
  • Battery: LP-E 17
  • External grip: EG-E1

This definitely casts some doubt on the specification list from a few days ago, but that’s the way [CR1] goes sometimes. The crop factor at 1.56 with a 26.2mp image sensor wouldn’t work out mathematically, but the LP-E17 tells us the camera is going to be relatively small and light.

More to come…

They'll probably have of chip AD/C in this one which should make a difference. I'm not clued up on the 6Dii, what was so bad?

It's the logical thing to do, other things that would be logical to differentiate from the EOS R would be: no headphone jack, no C-Log, IPB compression (UHS-II support not needed).
It's like a M5 with an M50 articulating screen and a FF sensor with RF mount.

I don't think it will be changed.
It depends, but the dynamic range it is much more like the 5D Mark III (maybe a little bit better), certainly inferior to the the Mark IV / EOS R and also somewhat behind 5Ds/5DsR

6DII most probably uses on-chip ADC and the base ISO performance is worse than even the APS-C 80D. While the 6DII is still capable of making perfect photos, in certain conditions, the worse results than its APS-C siblins, are a bummer.

I just hope its a new sensor and not 6D mk2 sensor or else the reviews are going to be terrible to say the least.

Not necessarily, since for the time being, the camera has no real direct competition, only much older Sony models.

At the price points being discussed, what else would we really expect from Canon?

LP-E17? This is a M/Rebel battery. This will be a relatively inexpensive basic camera body. I am expecting a lot of plastic and the 6DII sensor. But at a low price point.

Crack on,
Talking about a 'budget' camera like it should have professional specs is a familiar line.
General rule of thumb here is, 'you pay for what you get'
Don't worry, I get your thinking. We have freely decided to pass on the 6D II, saved a bit and went for the 5DIV instead, so in the end, Canon got even more money from us :)

The trouble is, I don't consider it being a budget solution for the "professional line", if the lower line 80D, M5 and M6 have better low light performance.

After the 6DII release I told to myself, that Canon had to be under some time or budget or production line pressure, and that Canon will not repeat the same mistake again. I just hope I was right.
