Compact and lightweight design offers a very good grip

Canon EOS RP is indeed a design marvel. Canon has managed to integrate a full-frame sensor in a body which weighs just 485 grams. Featuring 'Dual Pixel CMOS AF', EOS RP feels extremely lightweight in hands unless you haven't strapped a big lens on the camera mount. And honestly, most of the RF lenses are going to make the camera feel a bit oversized due to such large diameter of the lens mount on a smaller body of EOS RP.

Nevertheless, it's a compromise that you have to make if you are in the market for the lightest full-frame mirrorless camera. Canon EOS RP has magnesium allow chassis and a well-defined body that will please shutterbugs. The buttons, dials, and ports are placed at correct spots. The grip is not the deepest but with such compact body on EOS RP; you will find a good hold while clicking pictures.

The camera features a Vari-angle touch-enabled LCD screen. You also get a customizable electronic viewfinder (EVF) that as per Canon provides 100% coverage and has 2.36million dots OLED display.
