You don't need to spend top dollar to capture superb images. Following the launch of the EOS R in 2018, Canon introduced us to the EOS RP – a much more affordable, pared-back version of the full-frame mirrorless flagship – making the tech more accessible to photographers of all skill levels.

Just because it's affordable doesn't mean it's not a capable camera. The EOS RP is packed to the rafters with features, starting with a 26.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor housed within the compact yet ergonomic chassis. The sensor offers a native sensitivity of ISO 100-40,000, with an autofocus setup of 4,779 selectable points.

Processing is handled by Canon's Digic 8 imagine engine, the same powerhouse used in newer Canon shooters like the EOS 90D, EOS M6 Mark II and you'll even find it lending a helping hand in the EOS 1D X Mark III. There's enough power under the hood for 4K video recording at up to 25fps – although you will have to contend with a 1.6x crop factor when filming movies – and burst speeds of up to 5fps.

Add to this a 0.39-inch viewfinder with a 2.36 million-dot OLED panel, and a 3-inch LCD touchscreen with 1.04 million dots – which even spins around to face forward – and you've got a versatile camera that captures some stunning shots.

And while it already carries a relatively affordable retail price tag of AU$1,899 in Australia, you can score a decent saving of over AU$400 when shopping on eBay.

It's always great when you can save a little extra cash, and if you've been keen on going mirrorless or getting yourself a very capable full-frame camera, then the Canon EOS RP comes with a 21% drop in price thanks to VideoPro on eBay Australia. There's no code required, although you will need to pay extra if you're having it shipped to your doorstep.
