The disappointments of Canon EOS RP for people shooting video:
While this is one of Canon’s lightest full-frame cameras, some people will be highly-disappointed to know that the camera has no 24p video capabilities in HD. It only offers it when shooting 4k. So for many photographers who also like to do video, this will be a major source of disappointment.
The other major downfall is when you use crop sensor lenses on this camera, you lose the ability to shoot in HD. What?!
So, unless Canon comes out with a firmware fix to these issues, you will likely want to choose an alternative camera for video.
However, If you are wanting to use this camera for photography, you will likely find this a great lightweight, affordable, full-frame, mirrorless camera.
So, will you be buying the Canon EOS RP, or will you stick to the Canon EOS R?
