Back in 2013, Canon introduced the 700D / Rebel T5i in order to take the place for the 650D / Rebel T4i. The new device came equipped with a bunch of improvements, but since a decent amount of time has passed since the shooter first saw the light of day, Canon feels the time has come to provide a replacement.
Information popping up at North-light Images reveals the Canon has plans to reveal the replacement for 700D soon enough, as part of the xxxD / Rebel range in the second quarter of 2015.
We’re not sure what name the new product is going to be known by, but word on the street is calling it 750D / Rebel T6i.
Canon working on a 700D replacement?
Theories about the specifications of the shooter bring into focus an electronic viewfinder, instead of the regular optical viewfinder one stumbles upon in regular DSLRs cameras.
Mirrors are often used in DSLRs in order to allow users to compose their images and such a system goes by the name of optical viewfinder.
However, since mirrorless cameras have become more and more popular, the focus has been shifted on electronic viewfinders. Here the scene in front of the camera is produced electronically.
Most of the times those using EVFs have reported experiencing lag, but these systems have been getting better and better, so Canon is considering adding the set-up in its EOS / Rebel lineup.
We should be taking into consideration something else too, since the mirror box will be gone, the overall size of the camera could be shrunken down, leading to a more portable camera. Miniature cameras tend to sell a lot better than chunky ones, of course.
What other specifications did the Canon 750D end up mentioning? Continue reading to find out.
Canon will use a variation of the 20.2MP APS-CMOS sensor in the 750D
According to sources familiar with the matter, the Canon 750D / Rebel T6i will take advantage of a sensor which is quite similar to the one found in the 70D, meaning the 20.2MP APS-CMOS one.
The sensor will work hand in hand with a DIGIC 6 image processor and will take advantage of Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology (most likely).
This tech will bestow on the camera the capability to focus faster when using the new electronic viewfinder and Live View Mode.
