Canon EOS RP full-frame camera specs, photos leak ahead of launch

The anticipated full-frame Canon EOS RP has leaked in a series of press images. The model is expected to join the existing EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera, allegedly bringing with it a 26.2-megapixel CMOS full-frame sensor, DIGIC 8 image processor, and Dual Pixel CMOS AF, among other things. Canon is expected to officially reveal the camera in coming days as a lower-end addition to its mirrorless offerings.

The images and alleged camera specs were leaked by Japanese website Nokishita, which claims the camera will feature a 26.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Dual Sensing Image Stabilization, and the ability to capture five frames per second. The model is also said to have an ISO range of 100 to 40000.

The leaked camera images show a design akin to the Canon EOS R model, but with some distinct differences, primarily on the front. There’s a flip-out rear LCD which is said to measure 3-inches and include touch support. There’s also said to be an electronic viewfinder.

The model also reportedly features Digital Lens Optimizer (DLO) in-camera, plus in-camera RAW development and C-RAW compatibility. The overall model, sans the lens, reportedly weighs 440 grams, but that may be without batteries, as well. The leaked specs include an unspecified 485 grams weight that may include batteries. 

The leak indicates that buyers will get an RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM lens included if they purchase the kit rather than just the body. The leak doesn’t include any mention of price, but the EOS RP is expected to be a lower end inclusion to Canon’s mirrorless full-frame lineup and therefore likely on the cheaper end of the price spectrum.
