EDITOR’S NOTE 2 DEAR ALL, This issue comes to you hot off the back of the announcement of Canon’s brand new full-frame mirrorless camera. The EOS RP was announced on 14 February 2019 as Canon’s new entry level full-frame mirrorless camera to augment the existing EOS R camera in the market. It is a very compact, lightweight and capable camera that arrives at a great price point. This makes it perfect for travel photographers and bloggers/vloggers. I was lucky enough to be in Istanbul when the camera was announced and I got to put it to the test in an amazing environment. Suffice it to say, I very quickly fell in love with the camera and how easily I was able to get exceptionally high-quality images out of it. The firm favourite lens I used was the RF 35mm f1.8 lens – small, compact, versatile and great quality for the price. I would suggest that you give this lens some consideration if you are in the market for an EOS RP. This is an impressive combination for a small, light, well-priced all-in-one travel camera kit. Canon also surprised us all with a lens development announcement on the same day. This lens announcement detailed Canon’s plans for the next 6 RF mount lenses planned to launch in 2019. The RF24-240mm lens looks like it will be a great compact zoom lens to go with the EOS RP – I can’t wait to get my hands on that. Please keep an eye open for some interesting activities and events coming soon fromCanon – not least of which is a return to the very popular Cashback promotion coming soon.
