Extreme dismantling - Canon full-frame micro-single EOS R/RP hard core dismantling

Full-frame mirrorless flagship "Big Three" - Nikon Z 9, Sony α1 and Canon R3. Two of them have already appeared on "Extreme Dismantling", and there are fans in the comment area who can't hold back their excitement. They want to see the dismantling of the Canon R3 as soon as possible, so let's dismantle the Canon EOS R and RP for this article! Sony was the first brand to have a full-frame mirrorless camera. Canon and Nikon did not enter the field of full-frame micro-single until 2018, when Canon released the EOS R, a mid-range full-frame model that belongs to the R micro-single. Compared with the same level of Sony's full-frame micro-single, the price is friendly. Many, the EOS R is listed at about 15,000 yuan. Compared with the Nikon Z 7 released at the same time, the performance of the Canon EOS R is slightly stronger (according to the Versus score, the Canon EOS R has 75 points, and the Nikon Z 7 has 73 points) . The biggest highlight of EOS RP is that it lowers the entry threshold of full-frame micro-single, directly pulls it to less than 10,000 yuan, and greatly expands the user base at a price of 8,999 yuan, but in terms of performance... that year's Canon What kind of machine was used to knock on the door of "full-frame mirrorless"? Take it apart and see if it's not clear!

Canon EOS R

Before disassembling, we noticed that when the camera is closed, the shutter will be closed by default, which allows the sensor Keep it clean, but it can also damage the shutter blades. Take it apart! First peel off the skin of the port and the rubber handle so that you can see the screws underneath, unscrew them all. Remove the port panel. At this time, you can take off the back panel from the main unit. For easier disassembly, you can take an oval sheet with a small pointed tip and slowly pry it along the gap between the back panel and the main unit at the bottom of the unit. (Note: The prongs of the oval sheet should not be too long, otherwise it will damage the internal motherboard or cables). After a while, the back panel was removed. You can see that the layout of the EOS R motherboard is relatively simple and simple, but some new connection devices have also been added. It is suitable for cutting-edge technology and high-end configuration, and the more professional new R-series micro-single is a better platform, and it seems that it does introduce more modern technology. Next, go a step further and take the motherboard out separately, in this case, we need to remove the electronic viewfinder, rubber handle and a few remaining screws on the bottom plate. The rear of the motherboard is almost entirely covered by the heatsink. Next, look for the camera sensor sensor here is held on to the spring by 3 screws. Because the body image stabilization function (IBIS) is not added, the overall structure of the sensor is very simple and looks very thin.

Canon EOS RP

The biggest highlight of this camera is the entry threshold for full-frame mirrorless cameras below 10,000 yuan. Although many professional photographers still insist on using traditional SLR cameras, many photography enthusiasts obviously have a greater demand for mirrorless cameras, and the price of full-frame mirrorless cameras on the market is not a small amount. Less photographers. Canon is keenly aware of this market demand, and soon launched the EOS RP, a low-cost, high-performance entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera, so it is understandable that there is no body image stabilization function. So how exactly does Canon do it? In appearance, the design of the RP and the EOS R are similar, and the overall touch is similar, but the LCD touch screen on the top of the shoulder is gone, and it feels smaller and lighter in the hand. The battery door on the RP has been replaced by a plastic material from the rubber on the R, and the airtightness of the body has been reduced. The workmanship on the inside of the RP lens mount is slightly rough, and there is no paint coating to protect it. Start manual work now. First deal with the screws on the outside of the viewfinder and the right-hand grip, then go to the bottom and unscrew all the screws on the surface. Then, start our normal operation, open the port panel, and unscrew all the hidden screws under it. The cover is easy to take off. Here, you can find that compared with the EOS R, the rear cover of the RP is easy to disassemble, which means that the components of the casing are designed very simply, and the weather resistance of the camera is counted on. not up. After removing the viewfinder and several other screws that attach to the body, the motherboard is easy to remove without worrying about ripping hidden cables. After taking off the motherboard, you can see the core part - the sensor, which is fixed on the spring by 4 screws. Looking at this 26-megapixel full-frame sensor, the small ribbon cable on the right is used for automatic dust removal, which shakes dust off the surface of the sensor. If nothing else, the Canon EOS RP is definitely the best full-frame mirrorless camera to dismantle at the moment. This disassembly is too smooth to disassemble, not fun! Let me share with you a rumor about the latest Canon camera. It is said that Canon is about to launch a Vlog camera with an RF mount APS-C, similar to the Canon EOS M6 Mark II. Currently, there is little news about the specific specifications of the new camera. As far as we know, this camera is likely to support 4K 60fps or 4K 120fps, please continue to pay attention to our public account for follow-up news. You may wish to guess, which machine will we "favor" in the next issue? Image source: KV
