Canon is preparing to announce the EOS 700D replacement, which will actually be split into two different DSLRs, called EOS 750D and EOS 760D, whose specs have been leaked on the web.
Update (January 27): A trusted source is reporting that the camera is coming on February 6.
There has been a lot of chatter surrounding the next-generation EOS DSLRs with APS-C sensors. A source has said that a new shooter, which has been leaked by Canon in a promotional Connect Station CS100 video, will take its rightful place between the 70D and 700D.
Recently, it has been revealed that this is no longer the case as the device is actually the 700D successor and that it is coming soon, before the start of the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015.
Now, another source is claiming that the 700D will be replaced by two models, called 750D and 760D, featuring slightly different specifications.
Leaked Canon 750D specs list hints at a higher megapixel sensor than the one found in its predecessor
The specs of the upcoming Rebel shooters include a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor and a DIGIC 6 image processor. Up until now, it was believed that Canon would add the 20.2-megapixel APS-C sensor of the 70D into the next-gen Rebels, but it seems like the company has had a change of heart.
The Canon 750D specs list continues with full HD video recording in MP4 format, HDR movie recording support, auto modes, and Flicker Detection technology. The latter has been introduced first into the flagship EOS DSLR with an APS-C sensor, the 7D Mark II.
Flickering lights, more common in indoor sports arenas or on the street, could ruin a photo if the flicker intensity changes at exactly the moment when a photographer fires the shutter. Canon’s system can read the frequency of the flickering and adjust the shooting settings to make sure that the photos will look good.
The leaked feature sheet says that the 750D will employ a Hybrid CMOS AF III system with 19 cross-type autofocus points. Additionally, the DSLR will capture up to 5fps in burst mode.
As hinted by Canon and the Connect Station CS100 video, the camera will come packed with built-in WiFi and NFC. Finally, the 750D will offer an ISO sensitivity range between 100 and 12,800.
What is the Canon 760D?
It is said that the 760D will be a higher-end version of the 750D, as it will provide some extra features over the 750D.
For now, the source has revealed that a Quick Control dial will be found on the DSLR’s back, while a bunch of “Creative movie modes” will also be available in the Canon 760D.
As for all the aforementioned specs, they will all find their way into this version, too.
This is not the first time the company has been rumored to launch multiple replacements for a camera. We remind you that the 5D Mark III is allegedly getting replaced by three cameras, as follows:
- 5Ds with big megapixel sensor without an anti-aliasing filter;
- 5Ds with big megapixel sensor with an anti-aliasing filter to prevent moiré patterns;
- 5D Mark IV with low-megapixel count (24MP), which will compete against the D750.
We should hear more just in time for CP+ 2015, so stay tuned!
