Canon has been rumored to be developing a new DSLR line that offers and even smaller body than the current Rebel series. Whether they will continue using the “Rebel” name for this smaller DSLR series is an unknown. Rumored specs for the new camera include the same APS-C 18MP sensor as found in the Canon Rebel T4i and EOS M (it’s really a great sensor with solid image quality coming out of it).
Additional rumored specs below.
- 18MP sensor (same sensor featured on the EOS M and EOS 650D)
- DIGIC 5
- Touchscreen similar to the EOS M
- 9 focusing points
- A new hybrid CMOS auto-focus
- 98% viewfinder
- ISO up to 25,600
- EF and EF-S lens support
- HD video
No word though on whether it will appear alongside the Canon 70D‘s expected announcement next week.
