While announcing the Canon EOS R10, promoting the camera as the least expensive R-series option seemed logical.
However, the Canon EOS RP was only $20.00 more expensive.
That price differential is meaningless to anyone investing in a camera at the quality level we are discussing.
Let's make some lists highlighting many of the differences between these models.
Here are some of the R10 advantages:
- DIGIC X vs. DIGIC 8
- Higher density imaging sensor provides greater reach
- HEIF and Dual Pixel RAW formats available
- Joystick multicontroller
- EVF magnification 0.95x vs. 0.70x
- EVF has greater nose relief
- Built-in flash
- X-Sync 1/200 with mechanical shutter, 1/250 electronic 1st curtain vs. 1/180sec
- Superior AF system featuring Subject Tracking and Eye Detection AF independant from AF area selection
- Continuous shooting up to 15 fps with mechanical shutter for 460 JPG or 29 RAW images vs. 4 fps for card capacity limited images (fast memory cards can far exceed specifications)
- Continuous shooting up to 30 fps with electronic shutter
- RAW burst mode and preshooting
- 4K 30 fps with 6k oversampling and Full HD 120 fps vs. 4k 24p and Full HD 60 fps
- Max movie duration of up to 2 hours vs. 29:59
- Max Live View frame rate 120 fps vs. 59.97 fps
- HDMI Micro out vs. HDMI Mini
- Power switch is accessible to grip hand
- Longer battery life: 290 vs. 210 with EVF, 450 vs. 250 with LCD
- Slightly different shape: 4.8 x 3.5 x 3.3" vs. 5.22 x 3.35 x 2.76" (122.5 x 87.8 x 83.4mm vs. 132.5 x 85.0 x 70.0mm)
- Slightly Lighter: 15.1 vs. 17.1 oz (429 vs. 485g)
- Slightly Less expensive
Here are the RP advantages.
- Slightly higher resolution (26.2 MP vs. 24.2 MP, here is that comparison)
- Larger imaging sensor with larger pixels shows less high ISO noise, including less high ISO noise at the pixel level (here is that comparison)
- AF working range down to EV -5 vs. EV -4
- Metering Range to EV -3 vs. -2
- ISO 100-40000 (in 1/3-stop or whole stop increments), expanded to L:50, H1: 51200, H2: 102400 vs. 100-32000 (in 1/3-stop or whole stop increments), H1: 51200
- 3 Custom Modes vs. 2
As seen in the product images, the controls for these cameras do not differ greatly.
Those shooting fast action will find the R10 better suited to their needs.
Portrait photographers will appreciate the better image quality the RP delivers.
