Photo of the latest mirroless fullframe camera of Canon
    Canon’s newest mirrorless camera inherits the high-performance of the EOS R system in a compact and lighter body. Packed with 26.2-megapixel Dual Pixel CMOS sensor, 0.05s focusing speed and EV -5 focusing capabilities, the EOS RP is Canon’s most accessible full-frame mirrorless camera.
     
    Ho Ho Chi Minh City, 20 February 2019 - Canon today launched EOS RP, the second addition to its new EOS R range of full-frame interchangeable-lens mirrorless cameras. While it is the most compact and lightest model in the EOS full-frame series, EOS RP punches above its weight in performance. It features the new RF lens mount and the finest Canon proprietary technology, a DIGIC 8 image processor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF that delivers unparalleled optical excellence in a well refined body with enhanced ergonomics for easy operability.

     

    Mr. Hiroshi Yokota, General Director of Canon Marketing Vietnam Company Limited, said: “Mirrorless camera fans now got a new choice with the advent of Canon EOS R which is more reasonably priced but can still deliver high image quality. We have perceived the increasing demand from photography and movie-making businesses as well as keen travellers in Vietnam for a more compact and lighter interchangeable-lens mirrorless camera. And that is the reason for EOS RP to be born. We are confident that EOS RP is a representation of the power the latest EOS R system, taking photography to a new high and extending Canon’s mirrorless camera market share in Vietnam.”                    
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
    Cementing the EOS Legacy
    The RF mount is among the features inherited from Canon’s EOS R System. The RF mount sports a short flange focal distance of 20mm and was designed with the intention to allow more possibilities in lens design and innovation. Existing EOS users would be able to utilise their existing collection of EF and EF-S lenses using the optional mount adapter, leaving them spoilt for choice.
    EOS RP embodies the familiar, reliable features of Canon’s EOS performance and excellent ergonomics, delivering an unparalleled image quality that caters to both advanced photographers and those venturing into full-frame cameras. With the Feature Assistant, new users would be able to easily navigate to have photos of their desire while experienced users would be better poised to make full use of each feature to produce better images.
     
    Exceptional Image Quality and Details
    Another inherited point is Canon’s advanced DIGIC 8 image processor that enables EOS RP to deliver superb image quality in any situation. Its Auto Lighting Optimiser feature balances the brightest and darkest point to accentuate the details of the images to deliver a well exposed image, even in backlit conditions. EOS RP is equipped with a 26.2-megapixel Full-Frame CMOS sensor to capture vivid images with crisp details. Its native ISO range of 100-40,000, which can be expanded to ISO range of 50-102,400, produces low-noise images with rich details, even in low light conditions.
     
    The Dual Sensing IS of EOS RP that detects camera shakes from its gyroscopic sensor and the CMOS sensor to for Image Stabilisation that allows user to capture images at shutter speed of up to five stops slower, most useful especially in low-light situations. The in-camera Digital Lens Optimiser corrects aberrations, diffraction and optical distortions as you shoot, producing excellent image quality right out of the camera.
     
    Clever Engineering for a Sharp Focus
    With Dual Pixel CMOS AF that provides a smooth and lightning fast autofocus speed up to 0.05seconds, users can capture images of fleeting moments of their child’s first step. Create unique compositions without worrying about the focus, using the 4,779 selectable AF positions within the expanded AF area that covers approximately 100% vertically and 88% horizontally of the frame.
     
    The minimum AF luminance of EV -5 of EOS RP provides accurate focus even in poorly lit conditions, capturing that smile during that anniversary candle light dinner in a jazz lounge.
     
    The Eye Detection AF which even works in Servo AF mode will detect and ensure that the subject’s eye is always in focus even at wide open aperture, especially useful when the subject is moving. When in situations which require minimum disturbance, like shooting intimate moments during a wedding ceremony, in museums or simply to capture candid expressions of people without being intrusive, the camera’s Silent Mode enables users to shoot in stealth, without the sound of a shutter release.
     
    Besides, for users looking to create images with a large depth of field where everything in the image is in focus, the Focus Bracketing feature of EOS RP would come in handy, especially when shooting macro. It automatically shoots a series of photos based on predetermined settings such as number of shots, focusing range and first focus point. The series of images could be stitched together to form the final image using the Digital Photo Professional software.
     
    Majestic Movie Capabilities
    The EOS RP shoots in ultra HD with 4K at 24p/25p video footage, and with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, users can focus accurately and shoot smoothly. With Touch& Drag AF, users can create pull-focus effects and also enable focus transition simply by moving their finger from one to another part of the frame on the LCD screen. Combination IS provides users with stable footages even without a tripod, through the innovative and improved communication of the RF mount between the sensor and the lens. 
     
    When recording video with the RF lens, users can adjust the AV setting to make ⅛-stop aperture adjustments, allowing users more precise control over exposure to match the lighting conditions of the shoot. When shooting manually, the MF Peaking function becomes essential, ensuring accurate focusing by highlighting areas in focus.
     
    Enhanced Ergonomics for Ease of Handling
    Weighing only 485 grams and built significantly smaller, EOS RP is easier to handle, especially for users who are new full-frame cameras.  For users with larger hands, an optional Extension Grip (EG-E1) comes in handy to ensure firmer handling.
     
    EOS RP’s Vari-angle LCD screen offers users the opportunity to shoot from unusual angles and to try out unique framing.  Armed with a customisable electronic viewfinder (EVF) that provides 100% coverage, EOS RP’s EVF displays accurate details through its 2.36million dots OLED display, especially useful when working under bright glaring.
     
    Apart from charging the batteries with the included external charger, EOS RP can be quickly charged directly with using the optional USB Power Adapter PD-E1, in a speedy manner through its Hi-Speed (USB 2.0/ Type C) Interface.
     
    Seamless Connection
    Transferring images from EOS RP to either a smart device or computer is a breeze via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology. Users can perform any network-related functions by utilising Canon Camera Connect app designed for mobile devices. When paired, the automatic data transfer function can send photos to users’ smartphone simultaneously while they are still taking photos. This helps with photos management without having to manually transfer images after shooting.
     
    Apparently, with such innovations that initiate more comfort but still ensure stable and sharp image quality and comes with a more affordable price, EOS RP is the perfect choice for photography lovers who are always on the move or businesses specializing in outdoor wedding photos.

     

    “As a nod to one of Canon’s historic ground breaking camera “Type P” which was a big hit in 1960 and inspired by the French word ‘Populaire’, which means “famous”, we hope that EOS RP will become a symbolic tool for full-frame mirrorless camera fans in Vietnam. We are confident that EOS RP will enable more users to experience further and get more benefits of a full-frame mirrorless camera”, Mr. Hiroshi Yokota reiterated.
