Just as Canon was preparing to reveal their second EOS R, photos of the EOS RP has been leaked by Nokishita Camera.

The website has also posted some of the supposed specs, indicating the RP will have a 26.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and offer five-frames-per-second continuous shooting.

Based on the leaked specs, the EOS RP appears to be a compact version of the EOS R. While the front and back look similar to its predecessor, it no longer has the multifunction touch bar. The EOS RP will reportedly include an ISO range of 100 to 40000, which is expandable to 50-102400. The leak also suggests a 3-inch touchscreen that swivels out, Canon's dual sensing IS stabilisation system and an OLED electronic viewfinder. The EOS RP is said to weigh just 485 grams with the battery and will apparently ship as part of a kit with an RF 24-105mm f4 lens.

The Canon EOS RP is slated to cost $1,300 (around MYR5300) and will be at the lower end of the full-frame mirrorless lineup. Canon is also expected to unveil an ultra-high resolution camera that may exceed 100 MP. More will be revealed in due time as Canon was in the midst of preparing to unveil the mirrorless at CP+ Japan.
