If you’ve ever wanted to share the experience of last night’s gig with your loved ones, you can probably relate to the intense frustration of grainy and blurry photographs.
There’s so much noise in them that you can hardly make out the performers’ individual faces and costumes, no thanks to the poor lighting conditions in the venue.
How can you do more justice to the quiet beauty of a dance item, a nightclub rave or the cheering crowds of a concert?
The Canon EOS RP is a full-frame mirrorless camera that’s here to expand your repertoire of stunning photos from these arts and entertainment events with much-needed features.
With a large full-frame CMOS sensor (35 mm), more light is captured, enabling better performance during low light conditions. Its broader dynamic range also allows you to capture intricate details in your photographs, showcasing higher contrast and a wider range of colours.
Shoot with Versatility in Low-light Conditions

Let the EOS RP make lighting adjustments for you so that you can focus on capturing life’s variety.
Regardless of how dark an event may be, thanks to EOS RP’s broad range of ISO sensitivities (100 - 40,000 for stills and 100 – 12,800 for 4K videos), you’ll walk away with sharp images and videos boasting vibrant colours. The ISO 12,800 setting is excellent in capturing dimly lit performances as high-quality images with low noise.
The in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer also corrects optical aberrations and lighting intensity so you’ll get beautifully clear images right out of your camera, ready for the world to see. In particular, the Auto Lighting Optimizer ensures details are not lost in highlight and shadow areas, as seen below, giving you better quality images when shooting in the dark.
