New photos from DCI

Recent Canon P&S releases and the new connect station from Canon have given us some clues on the new Canon T6i (750D/760D). In a promo video a new DSLR is shown, I have a few screen grabs to share.

Here you can see just a corner of the DSLR and if we take a closer look

See that rear dial? Should now give full manual control.

 

We see a top LCD and a lock switch. Both items have never before been seen on a xxxD or Rebel series DSLR. This could be very interesting and might mean they are ditching the top dial.  Or maybe the just moved it to the other side similar to the xxD line.  Everything else looks like a Rebel back there and Canon Rumors has confirmed that this is the next Rebel.  Last year I blogged about the T6i and thought that they might go mirrorless, I no longer believe that is true and while I do suspect that at some point in the future the Rebel line will be a mirrorless system it seems to early and Canon has given us no other indication that this will be the switch.

Just one more shot of the front – very little to see here as the hands do a spectacular job of hiding anything of interest.  We do know that this next DSLR will work with the connect station from Canon.

 

UPDATE  Feb 4, 2015 – Camera will be called T6i/760D Skipping 750D to avoid confusion with Nikon’s D750.

So the name confusion – Looks like the T6i replacement will be 760D but there will be a 750D that will likely be the T5 replacement (barebones entry level DSLR)

  • Full HD movies, MP4 format, HDR movie, automatic shooting modes (EOS 760D )
  • 24.2MP sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor
  • ISO 100-12,800 range
  • Flicker Detection technology
  • 5 fps continuous shooting mode
  • 19 cross-type AF point system
  • Hybrid CMOS AF III
  • Rear Quick Control Dial (EOS 760D )
  • Creative movie modes (EOS 760D )
  • Wi-Fi and NFC

Note: Hybrid CMOS AF III is NOT the same as dual pixel AF.

Below are my predictions for this camera before the list above was released.

Rumors suggest a release just before the CP+ Show scheduled for mid February. So what DO I think the next rebel specs will be?

  • 20.2 MP Sensor (Same as 70D)
  • Dual Pixel AF system (also same as 70D)
  • Wifi and NFC(for use with Connect Station)
  • 1080p at 60 FPS
  • 9 cross type focus points
  • Digic 6
  • Articulating Touchscreen (sensitivity mode touchscreen similar to Canon Sl1)

What did I think the specs for the Canon T6i would be last year? Read about the possible mirrorless T6i

  1. Not enough to get me to change and sell my 70D. The 60FPS isn’t important to me, and I do not know how much better the DIGIC 6 is to my DIGIC 5+. Also I have 19 focal points, all cross-types.

  2. I do believe this is going to be the next model on the Rebel line or xxxD (wherever you are in the world). I think they’re stepping up the triple digit line to still keep it as a DSLR and have the lower lines go Mirrorless in 2016 or last quarter of this year. It would make sense.

  3. I own the Rebel T4i and love it! I would prefer a hybrid of the T5i and the 7D Mark II with it’s Dual Pixel Sensor and many AF points (since the 7D II doesn’t have a touch screen, it hobbles it’s sensor). I’d take the T6i over either the 7D Mark II or the 70D, due to its Dual Pixel Sensor and full tilt touch-screen LCD. It makes live view and video touch screen focus so much faster and accurate. The con is the lack of AF points. I would at least like to have the 19 AF points the 70D has. Shooting birds in flight is difficult with on 9 AF Points (as the Rebel T4i, T5i, & T6i has).
