Main feature
  • Exceptional close-up performance: Minimum focus distance of 0.38m
  • Advanced optical design: 17 elements in 15 groups with anti-reflective ARNEO and Nano Crystal coatings
  • Customisable control ring: Manual focusing (default), silent aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording), or exposure compensation
  • L-Fn (lens function) button: Assign up to 21 different functions. From AF lock to metering, bracketing, and more. OLED information display panel: quickly confirm aperture, focus distance, exact focal length, and depth of field
  • Tough, compact build with extensive sealing to protect from dust and moisture

The Canon EOS RP is essentially a smaller, lighter and cheaper alternative to the imaging giant’s first full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS RX-T2_BK_18-55mm_FrontLeft_White

Just like its bigger sibling, the EOS RP is powered by the DIGIC 8 image processor and boasts Canon’s coveted Dual Pixel CMOS AF. The mirrorless camera houses a full-frame 26.2MP CMOS sensor and is capable of reaching a maximum ISO of 40,000. Alongside Dual Pixel CMOS AF, the EOS RP matches its high-end counterpart’s 88% horizontal and 100% vertical coverage. And – although not quite as impressive as the EOS R’s mammoth 5,655 AF points – the EOS RP still packs a similarly jaw-dropping 4,779 AF positions. It also features Face+Tracking, Eye AF, One-shot AF and Servo AF modes, and those shooting in low light can make use of the camera’s ability to focus down to an impressive -5 EV.
Main features
  • Incredible quality images at any time of day
  • EOS handling without compromise
  • See everything, miss nothing with Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • Shoot flexibly and connect seamlessly
  • Create high quality and super-steady movies

The Fujifilm X-T30, the follow-up to the X-T20, now boasts Fujifilm’s fourth generation image sensor and processor found in the X-T3.

Designed for all photographers from beginner to advanced, the X-T30 offers phase detection pixels across the entire frame, Full HD and 4K/30p video recording, a new intuitive 3.0″ touch-screen, and an improved body design for increased comfort and stability.
Main features
  • New Fourth generation 26.1-megapixel APS-C X Trans CMOS 4 image sensor and X Processor 4 (same as X-T3)
  • AF algorithm has been improved to deliver even more advanced AF-tracking performance for both stills and video
  • 100% phase detection pixels are now across the entire frame, making it possible to quickly and accurately focus on a subject
  • Improved video functionality: 4K at 30fps, Full HD 1080p, including 120fps to create super slow motion effects
  • Filmmakers needing high colour fidelity can record 10-bit, 4:2:2 colour through the camera’s HDMI port
  • New intuitive 3.0″ 1.04M-dot 2-way tilting touch LCD & 2.36M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF)
  • New Focus Lever: replaces Selector Buttons to achieve faster and more intuitive camera operation, allows for extra grip too
  • Improved ISO: extended 80-51200, standard ISO160-12800
  • Built-in WiFi for shooting from your smartphone or tablet devices
  • 1x SD UHS-I card slot, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth V.4.2, headphone Jack via USB-C Adapter & NP-W126S battery

The Fujifilm XF16mm f2.8 R WR Lens expands the X series line-up of compact, lightweight and stylish lenses with a focal length that’s suitable for architecture, landscape and low-light photographyX-T2_BK_18-55mm_FrontLeft_White
Designed for Fujifilm’s mirrorless cameras, the lens features a focal length equivalent to 24mm (in the 35mm format), has a maximum aperture of f2.8 and adopts an inner focusing system driven by a stepping motor for faster and quieter auto-focusing.

Main feature
  • The lens features 10 lens elements in 8 groups including two aspherical elements. Optimal arrangement of aspherical lenses suppress spherical aberrations and field curvature while maintaining high performance from the center of the screen to every corner.
  • The lens weighs just 155g and is 45.4mm in length. It is the widest lens of the compact prime lens series. The aperture and focusing rings feature precise click stops and smooth damping for enhanced operation. The metal exterior uses the same design style as XF23mmF2 R WR, XF35mmF2 R WR, and XF50mmF2 WR for a robust, premium feel.
  • The inner focusing AF system uses a stepping motor to drive lightweight focusing elements for a fast, silent autofocus performance.
  • The lens is weather-sealed at nine points around the barrel making it weather and dust resistant. It is designed to operate in temperatures as low as -10°C. Used with the weather and dust-resistant FUJIFILM X-Pro2 or X-T1/T2/T3, and X-H1 bodies means users can shoot confidently in light rain or dusty environments without worrying about the conditions.
