A few more images of the upcoming Canon EOS Rebel T8i/850D have leaked out ahead of the official announcement.
Canon EOS Rebel 850D/T8i Specifications:
- DIGIC 8
- 45 AF points (all cross-type)
- 4K @ 30P
- 3″ 1.04 million pixel touch panel vari-angle LCD
- 131.0 x 102.6 x 76.2mm 515g
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
