  1. Huh, an AF-ON button and a rear wheel. Sort of reasonable given that the 90D got the joystick. I presume that this also means that there won’t be a 77D successor.

    Also, a simplified mode dial. I guess if you want to use the scene modes it’s more natural to select them on the touch screen anyway. Plus there are too many modes to fit on a physical dial these days.
  2. Mhh 24.1 megapixel sensor with no crop 4k? so it's not the old 80d/m50 sensor?

    That was my first thought as well and scaling it up to FF gives 54MP, so it would also be different from the rumoured 45MP R5 sensor. I hope this makes it into the M300, having eye-AF in servo mode, but smaller than my M6II would be nice to have.
  3. Slight price increase; bragging rights; looks better on the spec sheet... pick one :geek:

    I'm sure you're joking, but that's the thing: Canon does not do "better on the spec sheet". As has been proven countless of times by internet whiners.
  4. Given the camera is shooting(rumoured) 4K video depending on the codec used UHS-II cards will definitely be useful.

    I highly doubt the bitrate is going to be more than 800 Mbps. Canon's current consumer 4K30p shooters , including the 90D, record ~160 Mbps which is less than the sustained max speed of even a cheap mediocre UHS-I card.

    You mean 80 not 800Mbps right? Because 800Mbps is 100MB/sec constant rate!
  6. Today's Rebel is spec'd similar to what 1D body was 10 years ago (give or take)

    With the exception of a metallic body with weather sealing, the 2020 Rebels surpass the old 1D / 1D Mark ii in almost all aspects. If this T8i has AFMA (I doubted it) I would happily buy one.

    I meant that UHS-I can write at ~100 MB/s, but I was inaccurate in that in practice sustained record speeds of UHS-I cards are more like ~30 MB/s. Still plenty enough for consumer 4K.
  8. Note the manual popup flash (no flash popup button) and the lack of DoF preview button. But I welcome the second dial and back focus button (yes, it could mean 760D/77D line is dead).

    Aside from the crop factor difference and the material/ergonomics of the body, just focusing on the specs. I was thinking this would really rival a 1D mark IV, you lose 3fps but you have more cross type points and you gain 8mp.
