The Canon Rebel T8i is preparing to become the 3rd major DSLR launch of 2020, following the Nikon D780 and Canon 1DX Mark III. Some leaked images have presented a handsome idea about the upcoming advanced camera from Canon. A dependable Japanese website, Nokishita announced in January that the EOS 850D (Rebel T8i) will be launched during the mid February at the CP+ photography trade show. Now, Canon Rumors has announced some leaked images of the new DSLR. It will succeed the 3-year-old EOS 800D (Rebel T7i). When we talk about design, the new camera is more different from its predecessor.
There are new additions to include an AF-On button and it will be a scroll wheel around the D-pad. The images suggest that there are still the same 3-inch vari-angle touchscreen (complete with a beginner-friendly graphical interface). Moreover, the mode dial have been simplified and again shows the camera will be pitched at nonprofessionals. Leaks clearly indicate the EOS 850D (Canon Rebel T8i) will have a slightly different 24.1MP APS-C sensor to its processor and it will be paired with a Digic 8 processor. But, there isn’t a Digic X processor as first experienced on the 1DX Mark III. It will lock it out of advanced features such as Deep Learning autofocus.
Most experts believe it will be an entry-level DSLR. Some rumors have indicated the camera will have the same 45 cross-type AF points with a slightly more powerful 7fps burst mode and it will have the ability to shoot 4K/30p video. It isn’t confirmed whether the 4K video will use the full width of the sensor. The Digic 8 processor should allow this and it will allow an advantage over older Canon cameras such as the EOS M50. We are hopeful that you will officially find the EOS 850D (Canon Rebel T8i) around the CP+ camera show on 27th February 2020.
