Canon EOS RP Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera Is CCAPI Capable


Melville, NY—The Canon Developer Community recently added a new offering to its network of followers. The Canon EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera is one of the company’s latest cameras to feature Canon’s Camera Control Application Program Interface. Users can access the SD card where images and videos are stored when they activate the CCAPI.

Launched in January, the CCAPI also provides commands to control and change settings remotely within the compatible camera.

Moreover, the CCAPI utilizes HTTP protocol over Wi-Fi transmission via programs supporting HTTP. This gives the developer more options of platforms to create applications. The goal is to help empower the developer to take advantage of multi-platform support and develop innovative applications.


In addition, the EOS RP also has a full SDK—the Canon EOS Digital SDK (EDSDK). This option provides a wired connection. The EDSDK also requires a USB tethered connection.

Users can access goth the CCAPI and EDSDK for free through the Canon Developer Community site. Those interested can join the Developer Community, register their camera and follow the steps to activate the CCAPI.

Combining the communications interface abilities of both the CCAPI and EDSDK with Canon’s EOS RP, users can develop applications or solutions of their own.

The Canon EOS RP mirrorless ILC has a 26.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, fast and accurate autofocus, 4K video capabilities and Canon’s latest Digic 8 image processor.
