The next Rebel
I received some early specs about the coming update to the T3i. We’re told to expect it before CP+ in February.
The camera will probably be a new 24mp APS-C sensor and run a DIGIC 5 processor. The DIGIC 5+ won’t be used.
Expect some standard upgrades in ISO performance, HD movie modes and some creative control updates. The final spec list is not yet finalized.
It was mentioned that Canon may keep the new sensor for a 60D upgrade, with the next Rebel sticking at 18mp.
