  By Ryley Smith

 

Are you thinking about upgrading to a full-frame mirrorless camera, but aren’t sure where to start?  TCSTV just created a Canon Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Guide that looks at Canon’s four full-frame mirrorless cameras. 

Canon EOS RP

EOS RP – The Perfect Entry to Full-Frame Mirrorless – $1,299

The EOS RP is ideal for those just starting out in photography, or for those upgrading from an entry-level DSLR. With a 26-megapixel full-frame sensor, the EOS RP gives you full-frame quality in a more simple, compact package. Overall, it’s fairly stripped-down with minimal control dials compared to the higher-end EOS models, the RP still has an excellent hand feel with intuitive ergonomics. 

Summary:

  • Entry-level autofocus performance and frame rate (5 frames per second)
  • Acceptable for kids, pets, and everyday life. Not ideal for fast-action sports or action.
  • One memory card slot
  • 4K Video (with a crop)
  • Fully articulating screen, headphone and microphone jack, and hot shoe. 

Overall,  the EOS RP is an excellent, compact, mirrorless camera with an affordable price point. It’s a terrific option for beginners looking for the right balance between easy-to-use while still getting that same full-frame Canon user experience.

EOS R – The Dependable Classic – $2,399

The camera that started Canon’s full-frame mirrorless lineup, the EOS R, is the perfect transition from Canon DSLRs to Canon Mirrorless. It features a 30-megapixel sensor, very similar to that of the 5D Mark IV. With sharper edge to edge shots thanks to the improved flange distance between the sensor and the rear element, along with improved lenses, the EOS R creates beautiful, high-quality images. 

Summary:

  • Weather sealed to the same level as the dependable EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR 
  • Articulating screen, higher quality electronic viewfinder
  • Single card slot
  • Entry-level autofocus performance and frame rate (6 frames per second)
  • 4K Video (with a crop)

In total, the EOS R has excellent ergonomics, a solid grip, and controls where you want them. The quality lives up to Canon’s high standard and the EOS R is a perfect option for those wanting a dependable camera at a reasonable price point.
