    <strong>The Canon EOS 8D</strong>
    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.</p>
    <p>Today, we see a spec list published for the Canon EOS 8D on a Chinese retailer’s web site, they are below.</p>
    <ul>
    <li>Body features: APS-C size digital SLR</li>
    <li>Effective pixels: 16.2 million</li>
    <li>Mode of operation: full manual operation</li>
    <li>Video Interface: AV Interface</li>
    <li>Flash Type: External</li>
    <li>External flash (hot shoe): Yes</li>
    <li>Focus Points: 45 points</li>
    </ul>
    <p><strong>CR’s Take</strong>
    
    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.</p>
    <p>I resist posting this sort of stuff, however it’s now making the rounds so I have to.</p>

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

    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.
