You don't need to spend top dollar to capture superb images. Following the launch of the EOS R (opens in new tab) in 2018, Canon introduced us to the EOS RP (opens in new tab) – 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 (opens in new tab), EOS M6 Mark II (opens in new tab) and you'll even find it lending a helping hand in the EOS 1D X Mark III (opens in new tab). 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.
