You just have to be there. And neither are you. Whilst pro bodies are generally more reliable they do fail. There's no hypocrisy in my argument. Get over it. In the process of keeping up with technology, switching to the A9 has been for me the single gear upgrade that has most significantly impacted my work. Continued... Not sure how you can suggest I'm not empathetic. The RP would be a camera I consider for budgetary reasons. Canon EOS R Review Summary. Then I am an astronaut. There are a lot of photo/video cameras that have found a role as B-cameras on professional productions or A-camera for amateur and independent productions. Well as someone who makes a good living from photography, I’m telling you that tools are secondary to your ability to get results. We have you covered. Oh and Michael were the hell did you see that packed, the cheapest I could get that package would have been £1250. You are right @ZapperDK, I hoped that the RF 15-35 2.8 and RF 70-200 2.8 would be available 1 or 2 month after the RP release ! Their angles and compositions didn't strike me as more than snapshots of the moment. Some are mirrorless, some not. War brings out the worst in us, but tragedy also has the ability to bring out the best in people. The EOS RP continued in that vein, producing pleasing skin tones and colors, especially in JPEG mode. Now, as the year winds down, we're highlighting some of our standout products of the year. For $999, it would be a no-brainer for many. It seems opinions of the RP are sharply divided into two camps: 1. That tells really how all over the places you are.Btw: "The fact that you litter a Canon forum for an entry level mirrorless camera with your Sony mantra only enforces my earlier points" no, I am simply responding to your post:"Most Sony users are delusional hacks with an inferiority complex. This is not really objective data, it's DPR's somewhat confusing rating system, and I believe it is not directly comparable to other categories of camera. If you spend time with the work these ideas trickle down. Still, this makes absolutely no sense -- why, Canon, why? I am starting to believe that I am the only one who LIKES Sony controls. "Well, I dunno about "exotic", lol! It scores above the Rebel in almost every category. Uncomfortable or tense situations? Having 2 Bodies like the RP or 6D with good weather sealed glass is more reliable than one body like a D850 with cheap unsealed glass. "- You include the renting OR purchase costs in the price of your product anyways. When someone questions their gear - they wear it like a badge of honour, because they know that when it comes to the photos, they are the real professionals. The EVF is nice to use. The camera offers a choice of One-Shot AF, AF Servo, and Manual focus modes, and with f/1.2 lenses can autofocus in light as low as -5EV. However, Canon has made some bizarre decisions here. It’s these types of images that potentially inform the public to demand action. The Canon EOS RP is Canon’s second entry in the new R series of mirrorless cameras from Canada. Staying with an RF lens you also get the MF guide on the LCD/EVF if you ever need manual focusing (something I needed, but did not have, 2 days ago). No price is given at this time, but the adapter is set to be available by the end of the year. Nothing is for ever. Everybody knows that every photographer needs 11fps. The vast vast majority of sports photography today is produced with single digit Canikons and this continues to be the personal preference for the majority of working professionals. Now that torch has passed on to 4K video; any camera that doesn't meet adequate 4K standards is called "disappointing"! So, you'll want to buy extra batteries for the EOS RP (at $49 a pop), which once again reduces the value proposition. Inevitable car analogy: The RP is a medium-class car with an V8 engine with only 150HP. DPReview posted a Canon EOS RP vs Nikon Z 5 comparison, wondering which might be the best entry-level full frame mirrorless camera. xpop All of this you knew before you bought your Canon RP so it only shows that there was nothing wrong with Canon but more with you. BWAAAHAAAHAAAHAAA! @kodacolor200I do not have a problem with you having your own opinion. It is about 1 1/3 stop, I was just rounding to 1 stop. the Canon EOS R or the A7 III! If you actually read my comments and weren’t lost of the concept of nuance - you would note that I said some of the best sports photography I have seen was taken with a 4x 5. Silly me. @strolic furlanThe funny thing is that the DPAF system is fast and it is VERY ACCURATE! Sometimes homeless people get lucky and find golden nuggets or something. Sorry but the human eye can distinguish over 1000fps through and OVF all you need to do is use an EVF in direct comparison with OVF to understand that the 120fps will still show clears signs of motion drag when panning - all EVFs have delay- Adjusting to a sub par EVF is not an option where an OVF gives you 100% capabilities of the human eye. @kodacolor200your comments and opinion lead me to a single simple conclusion: you are unable to adapt to something you are not used to or interested in, yet you feel entitled to generalize your personal subjective preference. " You seem you have difficulty accepting that. Yes this camera will be suitable for professional work. If you want make profession from photography the tools are readily available. Their photographers stray into areas of artistic execution when telling stories. You are pushing the one dimensional argument. (Just like the 6D II did last year after rebates and a free printer.). I'll criticise a lot of cameras based on *specifications* or on results of dpr studio comparison charts, and I think it's perfectly reasonable to do so. But NO menu navigation! Trust me they can take a lot more than a walk in the park. The Canon EOS RP is an entry-level full-frame camera. And there are plenty of those who refuse to believe that it might happen to them, until it does. Soldiers and weapons will be. Other dials and settings are well placed, and everything is programmable, so you can customize it to a T. The only button I really missed was a focus-point joystick (available on Nikon's Z6 and the Panasonic S1) -- I had to use the multifunction pad instead. Uncle Bob doesn't qualify as a pro. The fact that there is a deliberate use of the Hipstomatic app to execute the works is a deliberate ploy used to critique the narcissist notions of western individualism. I did buy an extra 5 batteries after reading that the shot count was around 275 shots. The ultimate value of a camera is the quality of the person using it. They give it UHS-II support and RAW shooting (admittedly not the fastest in the world, but respectable) with no buffer limit, and then they cheap out on the transfer? Fujifilm has announced a special version of its 100MP GFX 100 for infrared imaging. You just see limitations. But anybody there could have taken the same shots Brown did. Now, three months later, the company has confirmed in a statement that the personal information of past and current employees was taken from its servers. Most people would never reach anywhere near the cameras shutter rating before upgrading or moving to a different camera. "Hell I’d choose the pro over uncle bob even if the seasoned pro was using a couple of second hand Canon rebels fitted with kit lenses. The app includes automatic image transfer, gallery creation, editing tools and more. Not my camera of choice either, but you can’t argue with results. Even my D7500 can do this. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews). If we wanted to be precise, we would have to specify if the sensor is BSI or not, old or new, the lens T, pixel size, actual focal length (82.2 vs 85), etc. Find out how the Olympus M.Zuiko 12-100mm F4 Pro does as a travel companion on a trip to Oz. A similar argument to yours would be that most people are astronauts, only they don't have money for spaceships, so they ride trains and buses instead. Why didn't you get two D600's instead, uncle Bob? Like the Tesla driver cares. Is D810 better? Whatever, fine, write 2 Reviews per camera. Without bag and card, but with the RF 35mm lens. Please correct the review!I read an interview with Canon engineers and thay says that the EOS-RP has the same weather-sealing of the EOS-6D MkII.https://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2019/02/14/juicy-tidbits-on-canon-eos-rp-interview-q-and-a, I bought the Canon 6D Mk 11 14 months ago and absolutely love it. What’s faith got to do with it? I'm not against "cheap" photographers. Consumer cameras fail faster and more frequently than professional or semi-professional cameras for a reason. Terry Richardson one of the highest paid fashion photographers today developed his style using compact 35mm film cameras he also uses consumer lumix camera to achieve his particular style. Sensor: 26.2MP full frame CMOS, 35.9 x 24mm Image processor: Digic 8 AF points: 4,779 Dual Pixel AF positions (143 zones) ISO range: 100 to 40,000 (exp. You can get a silicon body wrap for pretty much any camera going these days. … And I can see why. The EOS RP is a very capable camera and much better than the M50 because of some additional controls. The most “pro” gear will not compensate for second rate ability. I have no photography career intentions at all. I get to buy and shoot what gear I like and travel freely. If i was open to making the switch to Canon, this sensor wouldn't stop me. @W3PYFHi there, I think the biggest concern is the price. :D. @ZapperDKactually HP is a measure of power which is the product of torque by velocity. That's not the apogee of professional photography. It is also quite a bit cheaper.Similarly Canon 5DIV's sensor is better than 1DX II up to ISO12800. - You don't need to buy any bodies to start, you can simply rent them. Isn't it curious that you did not find interesting at all that a professional photographer with an extensive experience with a new technology has a radically different opinion from your own? I used a variety of cameras and often an Oly TG4 is all one need to capture the fleeting moment or expression. They don’t do low expectations and you certainly won’t be receiving a nomination to join anytime soon. Get over it. I do like using the RP for portraits for the wide angle advantage and better focus with older primes. If you are a portrait photographer you don’t need a 1dx that shoots high bursts. You would also note that in making a good photograph requires one to have creative facility. Lol.... Ohh ... don't tell me that charlatans and dilettantes are never getting paid. As your overheads are more due to a silly decision to rent all your gear. It means that, if the picture on the right, taken at 35mm, covers the whole sensor, the picture on the left, taken with the 15mm, has been cropped and enlarged to show the subject at the same size. There's a difference, just like between a farmer and a homeless person. You can get professional results from the majority of cameras today. In deze review lees je mijn ervaringen met Canon’s lichtste en kleinste full frame (systeemcamera), de Canon EOS RP.De Canon EOS RP kwam begin 2019 op de markt en is een ideale full frame systeemcamera voor ieder die een compacte camera met een hoogwaardige … Understand you’re just an anonymous guy who happens to show their crappy anonymous Flickr page. It is larger social awareness that places political pressure one leaders to stop the horror. You don’t have to own a professional camera. I can get better IQ with far more enjoyable cameras. I think Sony users are being unreasonable tough on the RP. The Automn '19 updates to the RP firmware proved to be game changers - actually I feel, that some of the early reviews should be remade - the upgrades are extremely essential. Professional photography is not about making investments. There's no doubt about it: For a full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS RP is small. Yup, so far my 2019 LCOTY Award goes to the Sony a6400. You are attacking a straw man now. For one aspect ratio is far more suited to the genre. Of those the Nikon Z6 strikes a surprisingly awesome balance between price and features but is in the same bad spot as for native lenses. That means you have little manual control over the setting, making it essentially useless for the unusual lighting situations that happen all the time on the streets. Btw I shot for a long time with Canon pro bodies and I still have a 1DX collecting dust on the shelf. Obviously, if you can afford the higher price, go for the EOS-R which has a lot of better features and a bigger battery. Why would you think that was a literal statement? IF you are a professional.Professionals can shoot non-professionally as well and they can use whatever they want. I’ve been a Sony mirrorless user since the NEX-6. The higher iso quality is also acceptable to me.I had problems using my sigma 50mm 1.4 dg hsm but switching off the peripheral illumination correction seemed to prevent the large concentric rings which haloed my first shots. I know a guy with a 60d with well over a 100,000 clicks - still working. Quick update, I can push iso 4 stops no bother without noise showing it’s ugly mug. You gave it. The RF24-105/4 is a great option for the RP. The EOS RP is available now at a price of $1299 body-only, $1999 with the EF adapter and a 24-105mm F3.5-5.6 lens, and $2399 with the native RF 24-105mm F4L lens. Reality is exactly the opposite - uncle Bob uses the 6D and a pro uses D850's (possibly second hand). The EOS RP's diminutive size and light weight don't get in the way of some well thought-out controls. Canon sells the EOS RP with an adapter and EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6mm STM lens for a far more affordable $1,699. And yet I still do not know one person who owns a Sony camera... Every article about a Canon camera has a Sony sales pitch in the comments. You need to pass this extra cost onto the client, making you less competitive in the market. There are plenty of professionals who learned their lessons the hard way. If what I say is true, the first image should have more noise because its area is 4 times smaller (2 stops lower). From the perspective of its build and IQ ability. If you saw his photo book Libyan Sugar now on its second edition, you would certainly be humbled. Even when you compare the RP to the Phase One in equal conditions (ISO 6400), you can see the the PhaseOne is inferior in noise performance and how good the Canon sensor is in that respect. I tested it in the camera store recently. The EOS RP packs an all-new Digic 8 processor, likely a detuned version of the one on the EOS R, but has an 26.2-megapixel that's nearly the same as the one on its 6D Mark II DSLR. Then real, tough, pro gear is appropriate. Consumer camera doesn't turn into a professional tool just because you think that you are a big pro. If I select Flash Function settings I do get "This menu cannot be displayed . We met up with Canon's senior management at CP+ in Yokohama and found them on uncharacteristically forthright and open form. The new camera will be available for special order in early 2021. But no. The EOS RP is attractively priced at £1400 including an EF-mount adapter Canon has made a point of making the EOS RP compact and lightweight, to the extent that at 485g including battery and card, it weighs less than the EOS 800D entry-level APS-C DSLR. Now you are just talking absolute rubbish. The fully articulating screen could make it a great vlogging camera, but 4K video is limited by cropping and a lack of phase-detect autofocus. It's a camera. The majority of professionals actually shoot cameras like the 5d, 6d series. Well actually in low light the EVF does BETTER than human eye. But how do you know which is the right one for you? I turned off eye detect as it was too sensitive, kept turning screen of when I moved hand to tap to focus. Canon failed to deliver proper cameras for their new pro lenses. I've used it. Not to mention a cheaper route into the excellent quality new RF lens system. If Canon was to change, many would go back and that would be the hope. Since i was a kid he said he'd never let me join the military. It feels just as small in hand, though it's much easier to grab and use than similar-sized APS-C cameras, like Sony's A6500. Post a quick review now to join the conversation! Stabilization. And consequence of that is there is now a quantifiable point from which to say that old offerings are obsolete. What a stupid design decision. https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.vanityfair.com/news/photos/2016/08/see-photographer-michael-christopher-browns-iphone-photos-of-the-libyan-war/amp, So yes this Canon is plenty of camera for todays “professional” on the job. Improvement are so small now. But your tools of choice and your ability to fully utilize them (your skills) define the level of your professionalism. IPhone: the professional photographer's gear of choice. Finally, the EOS R can also focus in low-light down to a CIPA-rated -5EV (with certain lenses), an incredible achievement that's almost as good as the -6EV rating … I've come back to my trusty 6D but wanted to try something else, the EOS R costs too much for the shortcomings that I've seen and tried, the RP was not in my radar until 4 day ago. Some perspective here please! What’s the best camera for less than $1000? I didn't shoot an evenly-lit white wall at infinity. In photography, we must enjoy the process of doing it not what a particular camera lacks or have. I’m actually embarrassed by your stupidity. Cheap photographers cannot afford renting stuff.And after all the blah blah about how "professional" the RP is, you talk about D850 and D750, but not the D610, which is the same consumer grade camera as the RP. They are still very current and will be for some time to come. The real competitors are the $1,000 APS-C cameras. Canon's newer chips (including the ones in the 5D IV and EOS R) have a newer design that introduces less read noise at low ISOs, despite a higher pixel count. Well, and that is why art is perception... Brown's work just does not speak to me. - That's how you sound like. Unless you really really need to lift shadows, this sensor is just fine. You live in a fantasy world and you dream about becoming a "princess" just by taking risks. For a first owner without Canon history there is almost no lenses available, I own one and I must buy old EF lenses, lol, You can buy new EF lenses, they don’t need to be used. DPR, Judge video crap on video cameras. You are a gambler and you have no idea what professionalism is. If someone prefers a zoom, the RF35/1.8 Macro, is great as well. Agree. :-P. Further, in extremely tense situations as war, having big pro gear can draw deadly attention to all in the area. For me these ideas communicate well and it is a stronger body of work for it. It doesn't matter how much it costs if I don't like the results.Plus it got crippled video features and awkward new controls, so its resale value is automatically reduced.Reality is that I don't care about zooms. Yesterday had a funny experience at the Dutch flower exhibition "De Keukenhof", well known for its abundance of flowers. The RP’s 26MP CMOS sensor is strong in the Portrait (color depth) test, maxin… As we continue to test Nikon's update of its multimedia full-framer, we've added more of our findings so far on image quality, dynamic range and video quality. But you can't "babysit" tools you use to get the job done. If you don’t need it, fine. If you don't make money - you are not a pro. And that matters WAY more than hair-splitting differences between sensor characteristics. Weighing in at a pound even (485 grams), it's a full 175 grams less than the EOS R and much lighter than rival Sony A7 III and Nikon Z6 mirrorless cameras, too. I think 2 Rp’s and a good lens for each would be a far wiser investment than a d850 and no money left for good lenses. $999 included the adapter a bag and a card! If you read up on your history you would see many instances that lead to decisive action with regards to conflict, begin at a grass roots voting level. Canon releases mostly minor firmware updates for five cameras and its RF 50mm F1.2 lens, DPReview TV: Best entry-level full frame mirrorless – Nikon Z5 vs. Canon EOS RP. That's crazy. You can live in a cave and draw pictures on the walls with a rock, if you like it. Who would you rather have photographing you important event or story? So, you are an artist then, but not a pro photog. The new Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift lens lets you go wide with perspective control. Also, that size comes at a cost. In that regard, this camera fails. Lol. Read honest and unbiased product reviews from our users. Regarding "Canon color", that's always been to me. Needn’t have bought so many as using it more like a traditional slr I.e. The A9 falls short of these expectations. I am fully expecting to call BS on their noise measurements. Not professional tasks, you hack. @kodacolor200 contBear in mind I am a sport photographer and I shot several million images both with pro Canon bodies and A9. When you shoot at slow shutter speeds, you're more likely to get a blurry shot unless you have very steady hands or a lens with built-in stabilization. Knowing what you are talking and how you hold yourself is professional. Canon EOS RP Review » Gyanijosh Latest News, Today News, Tech News, Sports News, Business News etc. The adapter will bring full autofocus, aperture control and EXIF data transfer capabilities to Pentax K-mount lenses when used on select Sony E-mount camera systems. And then what? My point is more philosophical than practical. I just got my EOS RP. As for the lenses. They are still professional however and still get paid. RP needs to be a lot cheaper to truly disrupt the market. And then their stubbornness melts really fast. But when your are "out in the field", you need your camera to perform adequately. So much lighter than the EF version and much sharper. The a7 is a dog; poor color technology, very poor ergonomics, slow AF, nothing redeeming about it. I'm saving up for it and it will probably be my first native RF mount lens. I have friends that started out with less than a 6d. If you'd rather spend even less, the X-T30 can match or beat the EOS RP feature-for-feature, and costs just $899 or the same $1,299 with a 35mm f/2 lens. It's available in Canon EF, Fuji X, Leica M, M42, MFT, Nikon F, Pentax K and Sony E mounts and the first units are expected to ship in January 2021. Not vice versa. And they don't have to deal with the mode dial nonsense." Senior Editor Barney Britton's Gear of the Year part two details how he ended up with a Reflex-Nikkor 1000mm F11, and despite its quirks, why it was ideal for a creative project in the COVID-era. Again another cheap pathetic attempt to downplay the significance of something you will never be able to truely comprehend due to your choice of complete and utter ignorance. Tempting entry camera despite its flaws for me as someone who wants to finally try full-frame. not looking at screen for ages, but taking pics quickly and doing the odd focus chimping managed 800 images with a bit left in the battery. I’d skip the 28- 70 and go the 24-105 f4 on one body for the wide and long end + get a 50mm 1.2 on the other body for low light. They are produced by the creative behind the camera. If I want a future proof set up I would take one over the 750 because the glass would be a good long term investment. I handled one at a recent NPPA workshop and found it a most pleasant cancer to use. I did look at the same package over here in UK. I shoot high definition photography in the form of MF and they are not weather sealed. Eeeaaasssyyy for Nikon to update the D500 to the not-so-new D7500's functionality. One, a friend and client, is a civilian contractor for the DOD and spends her days poring over tons of graphic gruesome images far more telling than Brown's to compile/analyze data and generate reports regarding many global regions. But you would not even know of what I am talking about. You don’t understand what it’s a about. At the end of the day if you have talent but are low on funds and do find yourself needing to shoot warfare in a tropical jungle. But yes you can get professional results with your 6d and entry level primes) Your hypocrisy is the only coherent aspect of your argument. Not because they are less crippled, like Canon's philosophy shows.When you are trying to save money by using non-professional tools, you are being unprofessional and risking your reputation. EOS RP, EF 24-105 STM & EF Adapter kit: $1,699 a… "I have no doubt that the RP could handle more than you think"First, RP's obsolete sensor tech can't handle stuff that I need it to do well. dude. This why Magnum represent the work. I will have to wait and see if the R7 comes out and is comparable to the 7D. Photokina has announced via a press release that after 70 years of shows in Cologne, Germany, it will be indefinitely suspended due to 'decreases in the imaging market’ that have ‘force[d] a hard cut.’. Canon are losing customers (like me) to Fuji and other brands because they aren't providing what I want, instead they are offering cameras that are close but not close enough-which is frustrating ( as I already have Canon glass).

Like everyone who owns a car wants to become a taxi driver? W3PYF : You might want to check your auto-spell settings... or did you actually dislike the RP? It’s a myth that an EVF can match an OVF in these situations. Haptics, ergonomics and lens selection are the most important criteria when making a camera choice in 2019. We want to hear what you think. Really needs an AF joystick though, and a more long-lasting battery. I studied and worked very hard to achieve it. @GeorgeWell, certainly there are trolls here, but i don't really buy into the speculation that cameramakers hire trolls. The hopes are that Canon is going to make a change and just like they had the guts to switch system rather than complying passively or even justifying Canon marketing strategies, they are vocal in calling them out. They're getting better, and now that Lumix is taking MILC ergonomics seriously, hopefully Nikon, Canon, and Sony will get real about MILC ergos and finally make a MILC that impresses me. That makes it impossible to mix and match 4K and 1080p, something that I do all the time. zxaar - Plenty of people here will slam a camera they've never used, especially people in the Sony vs Canon camp, and the M43 vs FF camp. An angry bird? "You like to read others people comments in your own personal light, and sprinkle trivial facts to give some sense of validation of your subjective assumptions. While other manufacturers are moving ever further up-market with more expensive and capable devices, the EOS RP stands alone in providing more novice or budget-constrained users with access to the shallower depth-of-field that full frame cameras offer over those with APS-C or smaller sensors. The chances of two of these cameras failing “out in the field” is highly unlikely regardless if they are consumer grade. One reason why smartphones are totally dominating the market is that they offer the far better user experience for most. You will probably break and fail before it does. The photographic world has changed and there are many types of professionals today as a result. Battery life? However have you ever been in a situation where you had a chance to capture that decisive moment whilst being in a potentially life threatening situation? Most of the time it works as expected but recently I gives out reduced light at the correct settings. These capable cameras should be solid and well-built, have both speed and focus for capturing fast action and offer professional-level image quality. Please say this was only an april 1st comment. @ozturertthat is because most of these Sony users "trolls" are frustrated Canon users, who went through the pain of switching system and still feel the pain every time Canon reminds us of their corporate marketing strategy as "the king of crippling" for each new camera iteration. There's no doubt about it: For a full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS RP is small. And it's sealed better. Another demonstration of your complete ignorance and detachment from reality. You get hired on the merits of your work not your gear. The Sony A7 series sells well to amateurs that don’t understand, a camera is more than the sum of its parts. "And you living in wich universe ? It's a niche (and pricey) product to be sure, but so far we find it to be well-designed and capable of outstanding results. As long as you make vague, unsupported arguments what you say is irrelevant, I did not fail to read your point, it was irrelevant as presented. Haptics and reliability. It's a tool. Your argument is an oxymoron. Canon’s second full-frame mirrorless camera, the budget EOS RP, is a disappointment. I have a 7D Mk2 as my main camera and that camera hammers the RP at almost everything. Changes the Image Quality from raw to jpg without your knowing and never changes back.
