Canon EOS RP Uses 6D Mark II Sensor [Confirmation]

DXO Lab sensor test score confirms us that the sensor Canon EOS RP camera uses same sensor as we have seen in Canon 6D Mark II camera [announced on June 29, 2017].  So, yes it is redesigned but we are not able to see any improvements in the sensor performance of camera.

So, those who are stilling willing to upgrade your camera better to wait instead of spending 1000$ and getting the same sensor at the end. And yes Canon EOS M6 II is a better option if you want to capture videos with your camera. Since, Canon EOS RP doesn’t have DPAF in 4K and 1.7X crop too.

Best of both world

Why not even a single camera maker step out of box and adopt adnroid OS for their camera and spend some time and money in R&D of AI based customized camera apps for their system cameras.

If any camera maker combine the goodness of large camera sensor and AI based camera modes + image decoding algorithms as we have in smartphones, then for sure we will have best tool in our hands.

Zeiss ZX1 is a excellent attempt to create smartcameras

We all know Zeiss ZX1 is a smartcamera which uses android OS and customized camera app. But it cost too high and not in the reach of day to day shooters. We need a new series of smartcameras that can uplift the performance of existing cameras.

What will happen in next Five years ?

Do you have any idea what will happen in next five years if smartphone makers improves their AI to next level and introduce more complex and high quality camera modules behind smartphones ?

As we all know that Canon EOS RP uses the same sensor as of Canon 6D Mark II camera. So, expecting a better dynamic range from Canon 6D Mark II as we have in Sony A7 II isn’t fair.

What actually improved from Canon 6D Mark II vs Sony A7 II ?  By the Introduction of new DIGIC 8 image processor the Canon also implemented new noise processing algorithms with the camera. So, the noise of the camera is bit more controlled compared to Canon 6D Mark II.

Exposure and more…

Exposure Control

Exposure Modes Modes: Aperture Priority, Manual, Program, Shutter Priority
Metering Range: EV -3.0 to EV 20.0
Compensation: -3 EV to +3 EV (in 1/3, 1/2 EV Steps)
Modes: Aperture Priority, Auto, Manual, Programmed Auto, Scene Selection, Shutter Priority, Sweep Panorama
Metering Range: EV -1.0 to EV 20.0
Compensation: -5 EV to +5 EV (in 1/3 or 1/2 EV Steps)
Buffer/Continuous Shooting Up to 5 fps at 26.2 MP for Unlimited Frames in JPEG Format
Up to 5 fps at 26.2 MP for up to 50 Frames in Raw Format
Up to 5 fps at 24 MP for up to 50 Frames

As you can see Canon EOS RP features extended ISO range compared to  Sony A7 II Camera. Canon EOS RP features ISO range starting from 100-40,000 in standard Range and 50-102400 in Extended Range.

Whereas, Sony A7II camera features Standard ISO range from 100-25600 and you also have a option to push your ISO range to ISO 50.

In general more ISO range means better low-light performance. But with Sony A7 II camera you are also getting  5 axis  Image stabilization system. So, when you are shooting in low light environment  you can hit more lower shutter speed (upto 5 stop) when compared to Canon EOS RP camera.

One of the best thing is you don’t have to worry about a bit while using Prime lenses or third party lenses with your camera. Since, image stabilization will help you all the time despite of type of lenses you are using.

Canon EOS RP camera can record Videos in 4K whereas the Sony A7II camera limited to Full HD video recording mode only.

But Keep in Mind the Canon EOS RP Camera have some issues in 4K video recording mode

Limitations of Canon EOS RP in 4K Mode

  1. Canon EOS RP uses the APS-C Portion of the sensor, so you will be getting very limited dynamic range
  2. Canon EOS RP camera 4K video mode suffers from 1.6X Crop factor.
  3. Canon EOS RP camera doesn’t have DPAF support when you are recording 4K videos.

Limitation of Canon EOS RP camera in Full HD Video Mode

In Canon EOS RP camera is missing 24p frame option in Full HD and HD recording mode.

Sony A7 II Camera doesn’t miss any standard recording option in Full HD video mode.

At the same time Sony A7 II camera 24 MP BSI CMOS Video Dynamic range is better compared to Canon EOS RP 26MP CMOS camera.

8Bit output with S-Log2 whereas Canon EOS RP has 8bit output without C-log.

DPAF vs HYBRID – Auto Focus

Focus Control  
Focus Type Auto & Manual Focus Auto & Manual Focus
Continuous Focus Continuous AF upto 3 FPS Continuous AF upto 5 FPS
Autofocus Points Phase Detection: 4779 Phase Detection: 117
Contrast Detection: 25

Canon clearly have a upper hand in the specs sheet while mentioning their EOS RP camera carry have more than 4K AF area zones or segments.

So, it’s very clear that Canon will have more AF screen coverage .

Fastest Camera – Canon EOS RP or Sony A7 II ?

Canon EOS RP camera fails to give Continuous AF support at 5FPS more, Continuous AF starts from 3 FPS and Subject tracking goes down upto 2.6 FPS.

Sony A7 II camera features Continuous shooting speed 5 FPS full time AF support and very accurate Eye AF support while recording videos.

Which one has better Display ?

Viewfinder/Display  
Viewfinder Type Electronic Electronic

Screen Coverage 100% 100%

Canon EOS RP camera features better touch screen and viewfinder, compared to Sony A7II camera.

Other Features

Sony A7 II camera features better battery life (100+ shots),  You will be also getting Environmental sealing  with Sony A7 II camera. No weather sealing in Canon EOS RP.

Comparatively if we talk about list of lenses available, then we don’t have more than 10 lenses for Canon EOS RF Mount camera at the time I am writing this post. Whereas, Sony A7II camera have 100+ lenses out there specifically made for Sony FE Mount cameras.

Verdict:

For Hybrid Shooters we have no option other than Canon EOS RP, nature of display Canon EOS RP is more user friendly compared to Sony A7 II. For still shooters we recommend Sony A7 II camera, since the camera features better dynamic range, In-body 5 axis Image Stabilization system and better continuous drive.

Canon RP vs Canon 6D Mark II

 

 

Canon 6D mark II vs the new Canon EOS RP. The canon EOS RP will cost you $200 less and features a bit better core specs than the existing Canon 6D Mark II camera. From the design its very clear that newly announced EOS RP camera features a very ultra compact design compared to the Canon 6D Mark II camera.

As we know that the sensor of both the camera excatly same, so it’s bit hard to find out the difference between the  specs sheet. As we know that Canon 6D Mark II camera is a DSLR, so it uses additional Phase AF Module inside the camera. The Phase AF module features 45 Point AF system. And EOS RP doesn’t carry any external Phase AD module like the 6D Mark II.

Otherwise, Both camera features same DPAF sensor. So, AF speed will remain almost same, however AF speed also depend upon type of image processor, nature of mount and type of lenses used. Viewfinder isn’t that good as we have seen inside Canon 6D Mark II. EOS R viewfinder is also just awesome, but to reduce development cost Canon sacrificed the quality of the viewfinder.

Auto-focus

Focus Type Auto & Manual Focus Auto & Manual Focus
Focus Mode Continuous-Servo AF (C), Single-servo AF (S) Automatic (A), Continuous-Servo AF (C), Manual Focus (M), Single-servo AF (S)
Autofocus Points Phase Detection: 4779 Phase Detection: 45 (45 Cross-Type)

Don’t get into the trouble of counting AF points, both camera features same sensor. You will be getting Same AF performance in both the camera. However, the EOS RP camera loses out 45 point Phase AF module of Canon 6D Mark II DSLR due to the nature of its construction.

Up to 3 fps at 26.2 MP

Metering range is improved in new Canon RP camera, but at the same time the the exposure Compensation range is limited and not as good as Canon 6D Mark II.

Even after the introduction of Digic 8 image processor the continuous AF speed of the Canon EOS RP camera is slower compared to Canon 6D Mark II DSLR.

Good news, Canon EOS RP shoots 4K video with contrast based AF, yep DPAF is restricted to Full HD only. You will be getting 1.6X Crop in 4K and no 24p option available in Full HD or HD Mode.

Canon 6D Mark II on the other side remains limited to Full HD video recording mode.
