Really, sometimes I think the only thing that'll satisfy the peanut gallery 'round here is if the camera gets delivered by an invisible flying pink unicorn pony -- and one that grants sexual favors, to boot....
Sorry, I have to...how would you know it is pink?

And, on that note, imagine a EOS-B in pink...katching!

I'd laugh SO hard if it was an 18mpx sensor that kicked ass, because they updated it but not the pixel count

want to bet?  ;D

I will. I bet, I will laugh very hard, if Canon brings these 2 totally outclassed DSLRs to market and sales will be .. very .. disapppointing. Like the crappy EOS-M. Not good enough, Canpon. We do not buy!!!
HAHAHAHAHA!

Well, first, reason tells us that She is invisible. Because -- well, like, duh! Have you ever seen Her?

But it is faith that informs us that She is pink....

I for one like the camera. I like all the mirrorless movement, but I just can't live without an optical viewfinder. But I love their size and weight. I'd prefer to have my 5D or 7D for work but also have a small DSLR for travel and walkaround that doesn't weigh too much.

I remember an interview long ago with a Canon exec, in which he was asked about mirrorless planning, and he said something like "its not a question of having a mirror or not, people want smaller cameras with DSLR IQ. We will meet that need". I like that approach, since the EOS-M sucks at both AF and viewfinder (having none).

That said, of course that its size imposes limitations. For example, I can't think of any lens other than the kit lens, that would fit the camera and be comfortable to hold, without being front heavy. If they release a couple more lenses that are lightweight but fast/nice IQ/better than kit lens, then it'll be something else...

As a sidenote, I looked closely at the lens mount on the picture... is it me or the mount (not the ring, but the locks inside of it) are plastic? They don't shine as much as in the other DSLRs. Of course it could be just a lighting thing, but the animated GIF got me wondering... maybe its just a camera meant for kit lenses?

Likewise.... ISO has bumped up and it probably has on-sensor AF to help in live-view and movie modes.

again.. the old 650D sensor had this already.  ::)
so they better have improved that to be at least usefull, to make a difference.

One is ISO 100-25600 (EOS-B), the other is 100-12800, expandable to 25600. Of course it is a rumour and the EOS-B number could really be 1 of 3 things.... 100-12800 with 25600 expanded, 100-25600 with no expansion, or possibly 100-25600 with expansion beyond that. Since Canon tends to market with the unexpanded range, that would imply one of the two last choices, an improvement over the 650.

It is very possible that canon is switching over to a new manufacturing process for it's sensors and 18Mpixel just happens to be the small ones.... with the rumoured 24M for the 7D and possibly somewhere in the middle for the 70D.

Also has anyone else noticed this?

What's the point of this camera, just because they cannot release anything competitive in the mirrorless market, so they reduce the size and the weight of their dslr??
Maybe Canon has a point, they know their fanboz love whatever they come out as long as it can mount ef lens

Hey, thanks. I just knew there was a reason Canon sells more dSLRs than anyone else, and you've just explained it - they count on their fanboy user base (all 200-300 of them here on CR) to maintain their decisive lead in the market.

Where else are people complaining about the letter "b" in the simple and benign name "EOS-b"? We only get that kind of crazy here on CR. :P

EOS-B stands for "Baka", which is Japanese for fool, as in April Fools... ;-P

just my two cents  :)

I wonder if in the naming scheme of small bodies (US vs Japan vs the rest of the world), there is still room for the aforementioned '100 D' monicker.

Canon used to have an FT-b.  No idea what the "b" stood for.  But it must have some significance if they are reusing it.  Maybe it's "b" for "baby"? 

Anyways, as someone who likes small cameras, I'll be curious to see it in the flesh.  But I'm a little surprised that they didn't go for a more modern / cutting edge design.

does anyone have an idea why Canon released such a camera? who is this small DSLR for?

tiny shiny overpriced toy...

I've had a go on the Fuji mirrorless and it confused the hell out of me. But the size was awesome.

Now if they made a competing camera with the same menus and buttons as the EOS............oh, look, Canon has.

I wish they would.  I opted for an Olympus OM-D instead of an EOS-M as a small walk-around camera. Despite the size, the sensor gives better IQ than Canon's 18MP offerings, plus you get usable AF, weather-sealing and a usable EVF. The downside is incompatibility with EOS lenses and a painful UI.

Canon ought to be able to beat the Olympus with an M-series camera. The Nikon 1 shows that on-sensor phase-detect AF can be lightening fast, beating pure contrast based schemes.

Instead of rehashing budget DSLRs, Canon I wish that Canon would just fix the M-Series by fixing the AF, releasing more native lenses, updating the sensor, and providing at least an option for an EVF.
