If you’re pondering your first full frame camera or need a backup body that will handle all of your Canon glass, now’s a good time to buy the EOS RP. With holiday deals, it’s now cheaper than ever.
The EOS RP is Canon’s second full frame mirrorless camera and was launched in March 2019 at the refreshingly low price of $1,299. Some complained that its video features were lacking, citing the severe crop on 4K footage and limitations on autofocus, perhaps a result of Canon trying to offer this as an affordable gateway to the RF mount while protecting the more expensive EOS R (currently $1,599) and whatever else the Japanese manufacturer had in store.
The RP has always been an affordable camera and its age combined with some holiday discounts mean that it’s now available for just $899. It makes a fantastic choice as a first “proper” camera (though there are plenty of cheaper options) and will be backwards compatible with all of your Canon EF glass courtesy of an EF-EOS R adapter. Its diminutive size and the 26-megapixel sensor also make it an excellent second body for Canon shooters.
