Full Frame. Full Power.

The Canon EOS RP is a versatile camera, perfect for enthusiasts who are looking for a well-versed option for both stills and videos. Sitting at a seriously attractive entry-level price point makes it more affordable than ever to move up to Canon's revolutionary mirrorless camera system.

Unlike smaller APS-C sensors with the crop factor, full-frame sensors deliver an outstanding image quality and allow you to make full use of wide-angle lenses. This factor is extremely helpful in low-light scenarios and necessary if you want to create dynamic landscape and travel images.

The EOS RP also delivers outstanding detail in both highlights and shadows, as well as Canon’s inimitable colour science.
