Canon EOS 80D mentioned on Canon support page

Eos 70d

eos 80d

After yesterday’s leak we know that Canon may soon announce the EOS 80D, along with the Powershot G7X Mark II and the Powershot SX720 HS.

There is no more reason not to think the EOS 80D will soon be announced. The EOS 80D is mentioned on a Canon support page about cameras and lenses compatible with the Lens Aberration Correction feature of Digital Photo Professional Ver. 4.x (thanks for the tip).

So far the only somewhat reliable specs I have for the EOS 80D are:

  • 28MP
  • New AF system

All Canon EOS 80D rumors.

Canon Powershot G7X Mark II and SX720 HS specs leaked, and EOS 80D announcement suggestion [CW4/CW3]

Powershot G7 X

Specifications for two upcoming Canon Powershot cameras leaked at Digicame-Info, the Powershot G7X Mark II, which replaces the popular Powershot G7 X, and the Powershot SX720 HS, replacement for the Powershot SX710 HS.

There is also a suggestion that Canon may indeed soon announce the EOS 80D (at CP+?). I always wrote that the EOS 80D will come in Summer; I might have been wrong.

Powershot G7X Mark II specs 

  • 1 inch 20MP CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC7 processor
  • 24-100mm f/1.8-2.8
  • Image Stabilizer (IS) equipped. 
  • 9 aperture blades 
  • Control ring mounted
  • Continuous shooting up to 8 frames/sec (even JPEG even RAW)
  • 3.0 inches 1.04 million dot tilting LCD monitor
  • Touch panel
  • Display tilts 180 degrees upward, 45 degrees below
  • Full HD video
  • Time-lapse movie
  • Wi-FI built-in
  • NFC
  • Picture Styles
  • In camera RAW development

Powershot SX720 HS specs 

  • 20.3 MP CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC6
  • 40 times optical zoom
  • Image Stabilizer (IS)
  • Wi-Fi built-in
  • NFC
  • Full HD video
  • 3.0 inches 922,000-dot LCD monitor

No specs for the EOS 80D leaked. I am somewhat puzzled about a February announcement for the EOS 80D. In any case, stay tuned since we will soon know more.

Canon EOS 80D talk, another suggestion points to a 28MP sensor [CW3]

EOS 70d

I got another rumor saying that the Canon EOS 80D might feature a 28MP sensor (thanks). The source also mentioned a “new sensor generation”. This wouldn’t come as a surprise given the amount of sensor-related patents filed by Canon in the last years.

I still expect the EOS 80D announcement to happen in Summer 2016 (others expect an announcement for CP+, towards the end of February, but I guess this is nothing but a hoax). However, there are also rumors suggesting a 24MP sensor for the Canon EOS 80D. For the time being I can’t say which one is more reliable, I am working on it with my sources.

The other bit I continuously get for the EOS 80D is about a new Auto-Focus system. Here too, I do not have reliable information, just wild speculations and clear hoaxes. The EOS 80D might indeed have a new AF system, but so far no hints about its features.

The EOS 750D/Rebel T6i and EOS 760D/Rebel T6s both have a 24MP sensor, as the EOS M3 has. Common sense may suggest that Canon should raise the resolution on the replacement for the highly popular Canon EOS 70D. 28MP sounds plausible to me. All Canon EOS 80D rumors are here.

That’s all for now. Stay tuned…

Canon EOS-1D X Mark II and EOS 5D Mark IV tidbits (and where to get fresh and unsophisticated Canon rumors)

Do you want your Canon rumors fresh and as directly from the source as possible? We can help.

There are a few sites, mainly in Asia, that first post leaked and reliable info about Canon products. The sites are:

According to the first two sites listed above, Canon will release two more DSLRs along with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II and the EOS 5D Mark IV (click here) in 2016. One of these will likely be the EOS 80D, the other, I guess, the long overdue Rebel SL2. The aforementioned, and usually pretty well informed sites, suggest the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II will be announced for CES 2016 (and be on display there), the EOS 5D Mark IV in February 2016. A 24MP sensor is rumored for the EOS-1D Mark II, while the EOS 5D Mark IV should have a 28MP sensor (as posted first here on Canon Watch). We also reported that there could be a model split for the EOS 5D Mark IV, this is also confirmed by the aforementioned sites.

According to information I got from the editors of these site, the codename for the EOS 5D Mark IV is “invincible Buddha“. The 5D Mark II was “magic rabbit” and the 5D Mark III was codenamed “invincible umbrella”. According to the people who contacted me, the EOS 5D Mark III saw a drastic price drop in Hong Kong, which usually is a sign that an announcement of a replacement isn’t far away.

I am following anything coming from these sites, and will try to stay in touch with the editors. Stay tuned, we will soon know more.
