Best USB Charger and Battery For the Canon EOS RP (& EOS R)

I just got my hands on the excellent little Canon EOS RP mirrorless camera and one of the first things I wanted to do was figure out the best way to charge the camera via the USB-C port. Unlike Canon’s DSLRs, the newer RF-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras such as the EOS RP and the slightly older EOS R, are capable of being recharged over USB-C with the battery remaining in the camera.

EOS R Adapters for EF Lenses

Alongside the launch of the new EOS R  full-frame mirrorless camera, Canon also unveiled a trio of EF lens adapters. These adapters will allow users of the 150 million EF and EF-S lenses in existence to attach them to the upcoming EOS R, and any future RF mount cameras without losing any functionality. Note that EF-S lenses are compatible with the adapters, but using one will put the EOS R camera automatically into a cropped mode to prevent vignetting from the small image circle of a lens that’s designed for APS-C and not full-frame. Mount adapters are nothing new for …
