Apotelyt Panasonic S1/S1R vs Canon RP Comparison: Impressively Small


Apotelyt added the Canon RP to their comparison tool and it is very compact. Canon is offering an amazing value with the Canon RP and it might just convince some to stick with Canon. Panasonic doesn’t really have a full frame camera read to compete with the Canon RP, but the Panasonic S1 is the closest. You can see the comparison at Apotelyt and the advantages from Apotelyt are below.

Advantages of the Canon EOS RP:

  • More detail: Offers more megapixels (26.2 vs 24MP) with a 5% higher linear resolution.
  • Better moiré control: Has an anti-alias filter to avoid artificial patterns to appear in images.
  • Better video autofocus: Features on-sensor phase-detection for more confident movie autofocus.
  • More selfie-friendly: Has an articulated screen that can be turned to be front-facing.
  • More compact: Is smaller (133x85mm vs 149x110mm) and thus needs less room in the bag.
  • Less heavy: Is lighter (by 532g or 52 percent) and hence easier to carry around.
  • More affordable: Was introduced into a lower priced category (36 percent cheaper at launch).
