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.

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.
