Canon EOS Rebel SL2 This Fall? [CR1]

Canon EOS Rebel SL2 This Fall? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | May 5, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

The Canon EOS Rebel SL1 may be the forgotten Rebel, except for those people that own one. It’s small size and good feature set has made it a sales success for Canon. When it was launched, it was the smallest DSLR on the market.

We’re told that an SL2 is definitely on the way and may be shrunk even further. While the thickness of the camera can’t change all that much because of the EF mount, the length, height and weight could be further reduced. One of the ways to reduce the size is implementing an EVF instead of an optical viewfinder. Sony has done this with the A77 DSLR, and Canon has said when the technology is good enough, they may also introduce it into the EOS lineup.

We’d expect an SL2 to share the same 24mp sensor as the recently released EOS Rebel T6i and EOS Rebel T6s.

We’re told that the sensor currently being tested in the EOS-1D X Mark II is 25mp.  The sensor will be manufactured by Canon, so any third party manufacturing rumors can be quashed before they start.

This source is also confirming the likelihood of a new pair of DIGIC processors to handle the added resolution and maintain the frame rate of the current EOS-1D X.

Do not expect any heavy handed ergonomic changes, the camera will likely look and operate very much like the current model.

New Flash System in the Works [CR1]

New Flash System in the Works [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | May 4, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told that Canon is working on a new flash system based around a new metering technology, which could possibly be E-TTL III.

The source said Canon is well aware they lag behind Nikon in flash metering technology and are “actively working on improving their own system, rather than making new E-TTL II flashes”.

This new technology could appear in 2016 in a new flagship Speedlite.
