The Next DSLR Will Be Entry Level [CR3]
« on: January 16, 2014, 10:25:46 PM »
We’re told by a great source that the next Canon DSLR announced with be a brand new entry level model below the EOS 100D. We’re told the announcement is “soon”. Which we expect to be for CP+ next month in Tokyo.

The same source also commented that two more DSLRs would be announced in 2014 and one of them would be the EOS 7D Mark II. There was no mention of what the third one would be, as that could still be under tight wrap in Japan.

No specs were given for any of the cameras.

It was also confirmed that “a lot” of lenses were coming this year.

How does it get more "entry level" than the 100D?

The SL1 is based on the xxxD line. Maybe a smaller version of the T3/1100D?
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Not surprising. The specifications of the 1100D are embarrassing compared to the D3300 (and the D3200 and D3100 that preceded it). The Pentax K500 and all the Sony offerings are considerably better in every aspect as well.  With the exception of the 100D (size) and 70D (dual pixel AF), Canon's crop offering are pretty dated and uninteresting. That said, I have no idea how they will update the 1100D (throw in a T1i sensor with 1080p, perhaps?).  That would make sense since the 1000D was a reheated 400D (XTi) with a slightly larger screen, and the 1100D was a reheated 450D (XSi) with video.  I'm not sure how they would differentiate a 1200D from the 100D, 550D, 600D, 650D, 700D, 60D or 7D that all contain 18MP sensors.

Wow, they found a way. I never would have thought it, but they found a way to put the same 18 megapixel sensor, that they've been using since 2009, into another camera.
That marks 10 (ten!) bodies that use the same sensor.

And they've still got to release the 750D/T6i, which means if they were only going to release three bodies that would leave room for just one high end camera.


To put in a good word for the 1100D, the battery on that thing lasts forever. As a walk around body I would still rather have that than many of the more recent offerings.

Is it just me or are these leaks getting worse and worse lol. I don't mean in the sense of "oh another Rebel" but they seem worded in that vibe of Canon just trying to stop people doing "stuff" (like people speculate in the occasional forum post).

I mean here we are chalking up another "Someone close to official said 7D2 is coming rumour" after how many years lol
Hurry up Canon and do something with your sensors! :P

Compare 100D (SL1) to 1100D (T3): 18 vs 12 MP, 4 vs 3 fps, VF magnification 0.87x vs 0.8x, 1MP vs 230k pixel LCD. Bump T3 with 12 MP to 18 MP and keep the price around US$400. That's your 1200D (T4).

Hmmm.. is it time to bring out the DIRECT PRINT button joke again?
Maybe a programmable one this time.

Sounds logical. Squeeze the T3/1100D specs (12 MP, smaller viewfinder, poorer LCD, slower fps) into SL1 body and keep the price the same as current T3/1100D. Sounds like a great idea.

I hope they release the EF 16-50 mm f/4 IS and EF 50 mm f/1.8 IS lenses soon. Will like to take them for my upcoming (July) trip to Japan.
