A rather weird rumor surfaced on the web. It’s suggested that the next Rebel (i.e. T6i/EOS 750D) may feature an EVF (electronic viewfinder). Moreover, this new DSLR is said to feature the same sensor as the EOS 70D and a DIGIC 6 processor. The announcement is expected for Q2 2015.
What do you think? I can’t really believe an EVF makes sense, at least not on a “classic” DSLR. The 70D sensor and DIGIC 6 sound both plausible, if not logic. It’s common practice by Canon to mount features of higher models in more affordable cameras after a year or so. If someone can help me understand the usefulness of an EVF on a DSLR, I would be glad :-)
Maybe the next Canon Rebels will be mirrorless? Or have a translucent mirror like Sony’s SLT cameras?[via NL]
