Canon Rebel T7i and Rebel T7s to feature 28MP sensor, one may come with DPAF [CW2]

canon rumorscanon rumors

I’ve been told that the Canon Rebel T7i and Rebel T7s may feature a 28MP sensor. One of this new Canon Rebels may also feature DPAF.

Just a few days ago we had a leak about some unreleased Canon gear which showed up at a Russian certification authority. I guess the next Canon Rebels are on this list.

While I think it’s fair to assume the next Rebels may have a 28MP sensor, I have some doubts about Dual Pixel AF to be featured on a Canon Rebel. I am not sure if Canon will implement its first tier on-sensor AF on an “entry-level” DSLR. So far, Canon made a clear distinction between camera models with and without DPAF. Since they didn’t give it to the EOS M3 (where it was for sure more needed than on a Rebel), I doubt Canon will feature it on a Rebel. However, as usual anything is possible.

The next Canon Rebels were rumored to be announced before CES 2017 by sources other than mines but we didn’t see no new entry-level DSLR so far, and CES is over. The new candidate announcement date is somewhen in February.  It’s still unclear when Canon will announce them. Also, no specs so far.

If you have suggestions please sound off in the comment section. Stay tuned!

Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera will have same internals as EOS 6D Mark II [CW3]

After yesterday’s rehash of all our EOS 6D Mark II rumors, I am glad I’ve got a new and fresh rumor. This rumor should also redefine (=nullify) a weird EOS 6D Mark II rumor I got some time ago.

I’ve been told (thanks) that the upcoming full-frame mirrorless camera we are sure Canon is working on, will have the same internals (bar the mirror box etc) as the upcoming EOS 6D Mark II. That’s to say that Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera will most likely have the same specifications as the EOS 6D Mark II. They will relate like the EOS M5 and the EOS 80D.

This rumor is credible. Building a full-frame mirrorless camera using the EOS 6D Mark II components makes a lot of sense. Taking a successful DSLR and stripping it of all the mirror box related stuff worked with the EOS M5, it will work again with the full-frame MILC. This must work fine for Canon: taking the sensor, circuits, electronics, AF etc from a DSLR and fitting everything in a mirrorless camera body.

So far, this is the rumored specification list for the EOS 6D Mark II, which we think will also apply to Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera.

  • All new sensor, rumored to have 28MP (we reported first here and here and here)
  • Dual SD slots (does not apply to MILC)
  • Tilting LCD (we reported first here)
  • Touchscreen (we reported first here)
  • DIGIC 7
  • Aiming for a sub $2000 USD body only price (we told you first here)
  • DPAF (we reported first here)
  • Possibly 4K in some capacity (we were told no 4K, 1080p 60fps instead)
  • Wifi, NFC & Wireless charging (we reported first in 2015)
  • Larger viewfinder (does not apply to MILC)
  • New AF system (we reported first here, does not apply to the MILC)

The EOS 6D Mark II is expected to be announced before Summer 2017. I not sure yet when Canon’s full-frame MILC will be announced. It may be towards the end of 2017.

Stay tuned…

More sources say the Canon EOS 6D Mark II will have 28MP, and confirm most other specs we leaked in the past

More Sources Say The Canon EOS 6D Mark II Will Have 28MP, And Confirm Most Other Specs We Leaked In The Past

It appears that many of the Canon EOS 6D Mark II specifications we leaked in the past found their way into a list leaked by other sources, starting with the 28MP sensor we were always told the EOS 6D Mark II will have, and leaked in April 2015.

This is the latest specification list for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II that leaked over the web:

The announcement for the Canon EOS 6D Mark II is expected to happen before Summer 2017, with shipping starting during summer.

Well, it’s a great pleasure and satisfaction seeing so many of the EOS 6D Mark II rumors I got and reported in the past getting a confirmation few months before the expected announcement of the EOS 6D Mark II. It’s just a pity they always forget to credit us.
