Engadget Review

Canon’s second full-frame mirrorless camera, the budget EOS RP, is a disappointment. It has potential as a street photography camera thanks to the small size, but is hampered by an inflexible silent-shooting mode. 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. Autofocus performance, handling and great low-light performance are the main bright points. However, image dynamic range is a bit disappointing, especially in the shadow areas.
