I believe Canon has heard our cries.... this camera is 4K.  4000D   :D

Too rich, thanks.

I really had to look and see if this was actually a USB stick
Who Cares! Shoot with a 75 year old camera, if you got chops, it will be great!

Edit: removed accidental quote.

Please someone tell me that this is not the same 18mp chip we’ve been seeing for 10 or so years!  :o

It's a pure budget camera for the lower market that's using cell phones, not enthusiasts. Recycling old technology is the easiest way to keep cost down. It'll only be a flop if it's priced too high. The added wifi for such a low spec DSLR suggests they're aiming for the market that would spend 300 dollars for a crappy point and shoot attachment for their Moto Z.

Where is the card slot? Guess it must be on the bottom through the battery door?

Does it have a plastic lens mount?

Whoa re we to question this. I was told that use random  consumers know nothing about what people want. I would pay 3000 for this if Canon tells me to.

To keep things in perspective, it is a low end body. They will bundle it with a lens, sell it for around $400, and because of the price it will outsell the 1DX2, 5D4, 5Ds, 6D2, 7D2, and 80D combined....

I'm just curious at what point they stop making these old chips... still producing them, or old stockpile. I'm talking about both the 18 megapixel sensor and the Digic 4+ chip.

I thought that they stopped producing the old chips/sensors when they made new ones.

For example... don't they have any 20 megapixel chips laying around from the 7D mark II or 70D? How about those 24 megapixel sensors that were in the pre-on-chip-ADC cameras like the 750D?
What about all those Digic 5, Digic 5+, Digic 6, Digic 6+ and Digic 7 chips?

There must be something particular about these two chips.... they either have a huge stockpile sitting somewhere waiting to be used OR they have some old production line still chugging away that can produce these things very cheaply. I wonder which it is.

It amazes me how they milk the hell out of these super old sensors and processors, releasing so many entry level cameras that are BARELY different from each other and announcing them as new.

And most people who buy these have the false illusion that they will be able to take professional looking photos just by pointing and shooting on auto mode, then be very disappointed when the photos turn out to be inferior to what they get in their smartphones because the phones do a much better automatic processing job to get the best out of the colors and dynamic range.

I bet over 95% of these cameras will see less than 5000 in shutter count in 10 years, most buyers will just be excited with their new toy for a week and then tuck it away somewhere.

Must be the work of the same product "designer", who specced the 6DII - good enough for masses. Unless they are giving those for free, I can't see the point. Wait - ppl will buy those anyway, so let's have another measure for Canon's success ...

I think they had to use this sensor, otherwise it would have out performed the 6Dii low iso DR. Sad but true.

I wonder how many people have been disappointed with the kit lens, not knowing that you can stop it down 1 stop and get much sharper images. These are the people that just give up and let their cameras collect dust, and continue taking pictures with their smartphones or compact cameras.

The only way anyone will buy this is if its like $150...

What if it were? :D

I mean, I'm curious... if it were a $199 DSLR kit with a last-generation 18-55 lens... would it sell in Costco? 8)

I actually really loved my t2i.  Though, I had a 17-55/2.8 lens on it most of the time, hehe.
