The Canon EOS 8D Rumors [CR0]
« on: July 17, 2013, 10:30:01 AM »
The Canon EOS 8D
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve seen a few rumors for a Canon EOS 8D camera body. It first appeared on a Russian retailers web site (We won’t link because I think they’re just fishing for traffic) around the time of the EOS 70D announcement.

Today, we see a spec list published for the Canon EOS 8D on a Chinese retailer’s web site, they are below.

  • Body features: APS-C size digital SLR
  • Effective pixels: 16.2 million
  • Mode of operation: full manual operation
  • Video Interface: AV Interface
  • Flash Type: External
  • External flash (hot shoe): Yes
  • Focus Points: 45 points

CR’s Take I file this under nonsense, as there is no Canon EOS 8D in development. If this leaked to a Russian & Chinese retailer, it would have leaked many other places as well. Secondly, the “7D” moniker will continue with the next version of the camera and Canon will not be adding another APS-C DSLR to their lineup.

I resist posting this sort of stuff, however it’s now making the rounds so I have to.

What does full manual operation mean? No Av and Tv modes?

Since this reeks of a bad joke, it's probably just a reference to "M" vs. having a powershot without. Who knows.  Been a long time since we had a CR0, so we can all have a good laugh now :)

Is there a CR rating below 0 - perhaps -1000 for so stupid no one would believe it.

This must be the new "Low-Megapixel" camera with the increased ISO range and 24 stops of DR that so many people have been asking for.... but it will score miserably on DXO testing....

Really? 8D hidden well looks like a 3D.

Remember that rumor a few weeks ago?

This reminds me, in Thom Hogan's article on what does the 70D mean?, he refers to the 7D successor as the 8D. I thought this was just name fail on his part (Nikon style +1 to the 1st digit) with him forgetting the mk n+1 convention of Canon. Or could it be he knows more than he's saying?... nah, I'd still go with name fail.

Over 24 hrs and Canon hasn't announced this?

That's it . . . I'm switching to Nikon.
