We’ve received a lot of mentions in regards to a replacement of the EOS 70D, which was announced in July of 2013. None of the specifications lists we’ve received seem all that likely, so we’re writing those ones off.
What we do know is we should expect a big megapixel increase over the 20.2mp of the Canon EOS 70D. We’ve been told by a good source that the camera will likely sit between 28 – 34mp when the final specs are decided upon. It appears that in the last 6 months, Canon has decided megapixels matter again. The same source said we could see an announcement in late 2015.
I think the recent patent for an EF-S 15-50 f/2.8-4 IS could potentially bring a faster kit lens option to the next releases of APS-C camera bodies.
A lot of the the other information we’ve received come from unknown sources that mention features like, silent electronic shutter mode, color top LCD that can display information like the histogram, and voice control. All of these seem unlikely, but may make their rounds around the web.
More to come…
