  • 14th The camera is launched in Japan as the Kiss X80 [Canon Japan - translated]
  • 10th The camera is announced [UK press info]
  • The EOS 1300D is available from early April with the following RRPs:
    · EOS 1300D body only – £289.99/€ 399.99
    · EOS 1300D + EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 DCIII kit - £329.99/€459.99

  • Canon 1300D Rebel T6

  • 5th Photos appear [DCI], so it would seem that the 1300D will appear soon, and likely with the specs below
  • Definitely a camera to make the bottom of the DSLR range of interest, if cheap enough.

    • I'd have perhaps expected to see the 100D updated first with Digic 6 and 20+MP, and a 1300D to follow up at 18MP, where Digic 4 would make it a 600D 'lite' and Digic 5 a 650D 'lite'

UK press info

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 10 March 2016 – Canon today unveils a new entry-level EOS DSLR – the EOS 1300D. An ideal introduction to DSLR photography, the EOS 1300D includes Wi-Fi and Dynamic NFC to make sharing simpler than ever, alongside a range of improved features to help you take impressive, creative photos and movies. With an 18 megapixel sensor and responsive handling, the EOS 1300D is the perfect camera for capturing images with a distinct look and feel that are immediately shareable.

Capture quality in every shot
For photographs that stand out from the crowd, the EOS 1300D includes Canon’s DIGIC 4+ processor and a large APS-C sized, 18 megapixel sensor, letting you capture intricate detail and the diversity of colour in every scene. If you want to shoot scenes where people and items pop from blurred background, the EOS 1300D’s shallow depth of field capabilities deliver just that. From close up nature shots, portraits and full cityscapes, the camera helps you create original photographs you’ll want to share, wherever you find yourself. With more than 80 EF lenses and a range of other accessories to choose from, the EOS 1300D is a versatile DSLR that delivers the results you want today and flexibility for the future.

Learn, grow and take control
DSLR photography can be daunting for beginners, but with the EOS 1300D even first timers can take stunning quality photos straight out of the box. Scene Intelligent Mode puts the camera in full control and chooses the right setting for you – or with a twist of the mode dial you can opt for a shooting mode designed for specific subjects, such as the new Food mode. Responsive Auto Focus through the viewfinder ensures even moving subjects remain in focus, helping you shoot action scenes at three frames per second. For fun, unique creations you can also apply a series of Creative filters, such as Toy camera and Fish-eye.

As your photography skills progress you can take advantage of semi-automatic or full manual control modes. With the ability to choose your own creative settings, from aperture, shutter speed and ISO between 100 and 6,400 – which is expandable to ISO 12,800, the camera gives you the freedom to learn and shoot your favourite moments even as the light fades.

For professional-looking footage, you can capture every detail in Full HD quality, thanks to the large sensor, and shoot with a shallow depth of field to add a cinematic flare to your home and holiday movies. The camera offers the same manual control in movie mode as in stills. Using Video Snapshot mode you can also record a series of short clips, which can be automatically joined together in a slick video sequence that shows a summary of your day.

Share, store and rediscover
The EOS 1300D includes NFC and a host of new Wi-Fi connectivity features to help you store and share your photos on the go. Using NFC you can simply tap to connect to compatible Android smart devices and transfer your photos, or shoot remotely using Canon’s Camera Connect App. Ensuring all of your precious memories are stored safely is a must – with built-in Wi-Fi you can upload directly from your camera[i] to a range of cloud services, including irista from Canon, and create online galleries ready for sharing with loved ones. You can also connect the EOS 1300D to a Canon Connect Station CS100 for simple photo storage and sharing options.

EOS 1300D key features:
· Take distinctive photos that set you apart
· Easily connect and share your images with the world
· Explore your creativity in photos and movies
· Capture stunning detail with confidence
· Start you photographic journey with Canon

Share moments on-the-go with the new Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR Camera
Become the next Internet sensation with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity*

MELVILLE, N.Y., March 10, 2016 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced its newest entry-level DSLR camera, the EOS Rebel T6. The Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera offers easy sharing of high quality photos and videos to popular social media sites via compatible smartphones and other mobile devices* as well as Canon’s Connect Station CS100.

“Smartphone users passionate about photography and ready to take that next step to creating their best images and videos ever will appreciate the ease-of-use and affordability of the new EOS Rebel T6 camera,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With the latest addition of the EOS Rebel T6 camera, the Canon EOS Rebel series continues to be one of the most popular DSLR camera lines on the market.”

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR camera offers a wide range of features including:

18.0 Megapixel Canon CMOS (APS-C) image sensor and high-performance DIGIC 4+ Image Processor for excellent image quality and speedy operation.
ISO 100–6400 (expandable to H: 12800) for shooting from bright light to low light.
Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity* for easy sharing to smart devices, social media sites and the Canon Connect Station CS100 device.
9‐point AF system (including one center cross‐type AF point) and AI Servo AF provide impressive autofocus performance with accurate results.
High-performance Optical Viewfinder helps facilitate quick and accurate focusing by firmly framing and capturing the subject at hand.
Large, 3.0-inch LCD monitor with 920,000 dots for easy viewing and reviewing.
Full HD video mode for high quality, easy-to-use video capture.
Missed Photo Ops a Thing of the Past

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera provides a wide ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to ISO 12800), making it ideal for shooting both still and moving subjects in a wide variety of lighting conditions ranging from low light to bright sunny days. In addition, the camera is capable of shooting high-resolution 18 megapixel still photos continuously up-to-three frames per second (fps), with predictive autofocus to help keep every image sharp and clear, even with moving subjects.

The Scene Intelligent Auto mode in the Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera analyzes the image, accounting for faces, colors, brightness, moving objects, contrast and whether the camera is handheld or on a tripod. Scene Intelligent Auto mode then chooses the exposure and enhancements that can bring out the beauty in virtually any scene or situation. Simplifying DSLR image capture, Scene Intelligent Auto mode lets you concentrate on composing images without puzzling over settings.

Another exciting addition to the Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera is a new ‘Food Mode’ on the mode dial for the foodie or blogger to easily capture stunning images of the food they love. This mode enhances the color and brightness of the food images while at the same time making the images ready to share. Other fully automatic exposure modes include portrait, night portrait, landscape, sports, and close-up. Additionally, the easy-to-use Full HD video mode captures sharp, high-definition video up to 1080p resolution with the choice of automatic or manual focusing. Creative filters such as Fisheye, Toy Camera, Miniature, and Soft Focus give users additional ways to create fun and imaginative images to enjoy, print and share. The camera’s new “white priority” Auto White Balance setting enables users to create images with a more neutral tone when shooting under incandescent lighting. In addition to all the automatic modes, the new Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera provides complete manual exposure and focus controls plus RAW image output for advanced amateur photographers and photography students.

The Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera is compatible with the entire Canon EF and EF-S lens system including over 60 current models enabling users to capture their world in different perspectives ranging from Fisheye to Super-Telephoto. Scheduled for availability in April 2016, the estimated retail price of the Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera will be $549.99** when bundled with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II standard zoom lens.

* Compatible with iOS versions 7.1/8.4/9.0, AndroidTM smartphone and tablet versions 4.0/4.1/4.2/4.3/4.4/5.0/5.1.
