The Next Rebel? [CR1]
« on: March 13, 2013, 10:12:39 AM »
The first spec list?
It looks like the first spec list of the “small DSLR” coming from Canon is making its rounds. I can confirm that the next Rebel is said to have the exact same sensor as the current 650D and EOS M. The big feature difference would probably be the size and some of the interface functionality. Let’s hope it doesn’t share the same AF performance of the EOS M when in liveview mode.

Specifications

  • 18MP sensor (same sensor featured on the EOS M and EOS 650D)
  • DIGIC 5
  • Touchscreen similar to the EOS M
  • 9 focusing points
  • A new hybrid CMOS auto-focus
  • 98% viewfinder
  • 6fps
  • ISO up to 25,600
  • EF and EF-S lens support
  • HD video

The announcement for the next Rebel isn’t too far away, though we cannot confirm if it’s going to appear alongside the EOS 70D next week.

How does this differ from 650D?

70D is basically gonna have to be the 7D (8fps, 19pt AF, etc) for anyone to be choosing it over that rebel.

I think the 70D will be a lot like the 7D in performance in a slightly smaller 60D body. The 7D2 should be a little 1DX with a crop sensor.

This Rebel appears to be more of an incremental upgrade than I've yet seen in the Rebel series. I wonder if they'll add wifi or gps. I think a good portion of buyers of these cameras are the Best Buy soccer mom types who don't use them to 25% of their true ability.

Marketing instant facebook pics may be a better sale than iso 25600. I could be wrong.

Erm, same image sensor since the 550D? Really Canon? That the best you can do? :(

That sensor was already lagging behind last gen's Sony 16mpx sensor in the Nikons' and NEXs, and now everyone's moving on to newer sensors...

If all you're looking at is the sensor, you should have switched to Nikon long ago. Canon's new sensor wont be available until release of the 7Dll (or whatever they call it). This new Rebel will be smaller, faster, better in low light and have the articulating touchscreen that many seem to like. The big question is what improvements have they made to the AF system. Sounds like an awesome entry level camera to me...

I have the same opinion about using the same sensor.... for me a basic upgrade for a body must be the ISO performance (that I guess will be the same).... Imagine if they would have kept the same sensor between the 5d and the 5d mark III... it would have been a disaster.

BUT, this camera probably is not meant for me, meaning that, as stated by other user, people would care more for sharing in FB than ISO performance.... well, that is call entry level.

Let's see about the sensor in the 70D and the 7D mark II (if they are finally coming).

For me, the next level needs to respond to the criticism of the prior model and that was mainly the problem with the video autofocus. If they fix that and keep the other parts the same spec then it is still a winner and will definitely make me pull the trigger on a purchase.  I found this website and joined this forum around the time I started looking for a new camera to replace my rebel t4i. I decided not to get the rebel T4i because of the autofocus problem. I may get this camera or the next mirror less Version if they improve the video autofocus. Once they do that They will find plenty of new buyers of their cameras because many people want to do both video and photos With the same device just like we do with our iPhone but at a better quality level.  I Like my old camera because the photos are better than the iPhone and I want my videos to be better than the iPhone as well. When I can get both of those features  in the same camera I will buy.

Since these specs basically took over the 60d space, I hope the 70D leaps ahead with by having a new sensor and 7D AF performance.

Agreed!

Not holding my breath though...

If it's a mini 60D at a 600D price I could buy one.
