Digital Lens Optimizer
The EOS RP camera has an in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer that works with RF lenses (and EF/EF-S lenses with a Mount Adapter) to provide a substantial improvement in image quality. The Digital Lens Optimizer limits deterioration in image quality caused by low-pass filters or wide-aperture lens designs. It’s usable both during shooting and when developing RAW data, and does not affect continuous shooting speeds. Data from compatible EF and EF-S lenses is built into the camera, and data information from RF lenses is transferred near instantly through the EOS RP’s 12 pin communication system.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF for Fast and Accurate Auto Focus.
High-speed Focusing in Approx. 0.05 sec.***
The EOS RP camera’s highly responsive Dual Pixel CMOS AF system features 4,779 manually selectable AF points** and can deliver sharp focus within approximately 0.05 seconds***. This means fast action can be captured and focus can be maintained with speed, accuracy and ease.
AF Area Coverage of Approx. 88% x 100%^
The EOS RP camera features an expansive focus area of approx. 88% horizontal and 100% vertical^ not only with RF lenses, but also when working with select EF lenses. With older EF lenses, or with Extender types I and II, the EOS RP focuses approx. 80% horizontally and 80% vertically. This means fast and impressive focusing even if your subject is way off center.
^ When shooting still photos. Actual coverage varies depending on the lens in use.
AF Points and AF Area
The EOS RP camera features a sophisticated AF system with a maximum of 4,779 manually selectable AF points**, which covers almost the entire image sensing area.

** Available AF points may decrease when shooting with AF cropping or in movie mode, or depending on camera settings or lens attached.
Excellent Low-light Performance
Amazing for nighttime photography or in very low light, the EOS RP camera’s brilliant AF can operate in light as dim as a light rating of EV -5^ where other AF systems may fail or search. Phenomenal AF is achieved even when using lenses with high F numbers. This ultra-sensitive AF works in concert with the EOS RP’s EVF to clearly capture subjects even when there’s limited light.
^ When using RF 50mm F1.2 L USM, with central AF point.
f/11 Compatible in All AF Areas
The EOS RP camera’s brilliant AF system doesn’t just work with bright lenses. With the EOS RP, autofocus will operate over nearly the entire image area even when used with compatible f/11 lenses. For example, users can take ultra-telescopic 800mm shots using a compact EF 100–400mm f/4–5.6 IS II lens together with an EF 2x III extender, and AF will function properly over the entire field. When used with a III-type extender, the effective AF range is limited to an area roughly 88% x 100% of the total image frame, or 80% x 80% if combined with a I/II type extender.
Variety of AF Modes including Eye Detection AF
The EOS RP camera’s Face+ Tracking mode helps enhance reliability for tracking moving subjects.
