What is the sensor size of the Canon RP?

The Canon EOS RP is a digital camera that has a full frame sensor at its core. This imager measures 35.9mm in width and 24.0mm in height, so that the total imaging area of the sensor amounts to 862 mm2.

The RP provides an image resolution of 26 megapixels, based on 6 240 horizontal pixels and 4 160 vertical pixels.

Sensor size comparison with a film slide

The sensor diagonal measures 43.2mm, which gives rise to a format factor (or crop factor) of 1.0. Therefore, the Canon RP is a full-frame camera, as its sensor size corresponds to that of a traditional 35mm film slide or negative.

Sensor specs and performance

The table below compares the sensor specs of the Canon RP to those of several similar cameras. The reported DXO values are indicators of the sensor's imaging quality (higher is better), covering color depth (DXO Portrait), dynamic range (DXO Landscape), and high-ISO noise (DXO Sports). Larger sensor cameras tend to outperform cameras of the same generation that are equipped with a smaller imager. On the other hand, larger sensors are more expensive and require bigger and heavier lenses than smaller light receptors.
