  • None of the above. My choice is not offered: Update RP to either R5 or R6, depending on actual mp of each and how good low light/high iso/DR are on each. If truly 20mp, the R6 has to be better on ...
  • I've been saving for years for an upgrade to my 6D, although I got an RP when it first came out as a stopgap/travel camera. I've got the money for either the R5 or R6 plus a lens or two. I want ...
  • I won't pre-order, because I see these as very different cameras. I want the R5, but take LOTS of low light/high ISO photos. The 20mp of the R6 is almost an immediate deal breaker for me, but if ...
  • Well, I'd still like to know the exact sensor mp and whether the DR is any better than the 5Dmk4. The answers to those details (in combination with the already-known specs) will determine what ...

    Except that those examples are far lower for those products than their historical pricing for their target customer. The R5 @ $3500 is not. Having already announced that the R5 is a new generation ...
  • Replied in Good story!
    That's true. It's also true that they are carefully building hype before adding the news on the price—either to perfectly pace the buying frenzy just before release (if it's $3500-$3999), or to ...
  • I can't quite go out on a limb as far as some of the posts in this thread. I didn't consider the "under $4,000" comment about the 5d2 to be a subliminal hint that the R5 will be $3,999 (or less). ...
  • In the video I watched the only pricing I heard was “under $4000” and that was in reference to the introductory price of the 5dmk 2, not the R5. Is there another video being referred to? I watched ...
  • My RP, bought the week it came out last February, came bundled at no extra cost with both a basic adapter and the small grip extension (not a battery grip). If they can do that on a $1299 camera, I ...
  • I read the announcement as IBIS working with the IS that many RF and EF lenses have. It may work better with RF, as in adding more stops of stabilization, but I'm hopeful that all or most EF ...
  • Yes! Great tip. I've noticed this as well, and it allows me to bypass the much maligned freeze after taking a single shot. I have an RP, but it works exactly as you've described.
  • Yes! I think some people believe that if the camera doesn't give an error message and shows 100% charge when you install the 3rd party battery means it works correctly. I think most of the 3rd ...
  • Excellent points and all very true, although some of these are not factors for some users. The OP should read these closely and see how many of them affect his shooting needs. Yes, that exactly is ...
  • I agree completely. When strictly looking at IQ , the difference between the 6D, RP, R, and 5Div (never used a 6D2) were simply not substantial enough for me to spend the extra for the R or 5Div. U ...
  • I got a 6D (2012 tech) in 2016, so I was excited to get a camera with newer tech. Rented a 5Div and an R in Dec. 2018. In short, when comparing strictly IQ neither was enough better than my 6D to ...

    I didn't realize any cameras had both flip and tilt options. I am used to the flip style from years of traditional video cameras. In addition to all kinds of strange, convoluted placement for ...

    Just a reminder that this thread is about the batteries for the RP - different from the R. Third party batteries that work fully on the R are available, but it's not totally confirmed that such a ...
  • Looks good and has many glowing reviews on Amazon. Despite that, please report back if possible when you’ve used these batteries some. I’m still skeptical that they show truly accurate remaining ...
  • I have a pair of Neewer batteries for my RP along with two Canons - the one that came with my RP plus the one that came with my SL2. The Neewers work just fine and do show battery life, but once ...
  • I (and I assume many others) got a special email offer dropping it by $200 more to $1799. This would have been a truly exciting no-brainer a year ago, but I’m now committed to waiting and holding ...
