2015 March

  • 6th A video made with the 760D, highlighting its AF capabilities at Canon

February

  • 17th The split of the xxxD line into two very similar cameras is discussed at DPR.
  • With largely identical specifications, it's an interesting choice for many purchasers.
  • In the UK one camera is £50 more than the other, so why would you pick one over the other, apart from the usual temptation to want the 'better' version.
    • Whilst I don't sell equipment at all, I do provide product photography training for small companies wanting to 'do their own photography' and have already been asked which is 'best'.
    • To my mind, for basic tethered product photography, save the £50 and put it towards a better lens or better lights. Or even buy a 700D (or 650D if you can find one) and save even more.
    • However, if I'm asked the same question by someone looking to upgrade from a 500D or older then it's the 760D that would get my vote (that top LCD is so much easier to use for general settings - you don't need the one on the back most of the time (IMHO).
    • If you are looking to update an older camera, don't be tempted to keep the old 18-55 lens to save a bit of cash.
    • The new STM 18-55 is such a jump in build quality and performance over the older versions that using an old 18-55 is not a wise choice...
    • BTW, I have an article showing the differences between Canon's many 18-55 versions at EFLens.com
  • 7th UK announcement info added below (750/760D)
  • 760D available from April 2015 with the following kit combinations:
    • - Body only - £649.99/ €859.99
  • The EOS 750D will be available from April 2015 with the following kit combinations:
    • - Body only - £599.99/ €799.99
    • - EOS 750D EF-S 18-55mm IS STM - £689.99/ €899.99
  • Selected lenses will be eligible for cashback when bought with an EOS 760D or EOS 750D

US release info

EOS 750D front viewMELVILLE, N.Y., February 5, 2015 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the addition of two new DSLR cameras to its popular EOS Rebel lineup: the EOS Rebel T6s Digital SLR camera, and the EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR camera. Featuring a newly developed 24.2 megapixel Canon CMOS imaging sensor, both cameras deliver the highest resolution available amongst EOS models with an APS-C format sensor. Additionally, the cameras feature built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC™ capabilities – a first for the Canon EOS Rebel system – making snapping and sharing high-quality, treasured images seamless.

“The Canon EOS Rebel series is one of the most popular lines of DSLR cameras on the market, and we are proud to continue to innovate and upgrade this line with features such as wireless connectivity and improved image capture capabilities,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As the popularity of this line grows with consumers, we’re excited to launch the EOS Rebel T6s as our new flagship camera in the Rebel line, as well as have another budget-conscious offering in the line with the Rebel T6i.”

With multiple features most commonly found in advanced amateur cameras, the EOS Rebel T6s is designed for photography enthusiasts, or those who are already experienced with entry-level cameras who want to take high-quality photos and videos, and look for more advanced features and functions. For more casual photography needs, or for users looking to purchase their first DSLR camera, the EOS Rebel T6i camera prioritizes affordability, without sacrificing basic SLR performance attributes like quick shutter response, and compatibility with Canon’s impressive line of interchangeable lenses and accessories.

Outstanding Image Capture Features
The new EOS Rebel cameras have an extensive ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600) to accommodate shooting situations ranging from bright sunny days at the beach to dimly lit indoor dance recitals. The high-performance DIGIC 6 image processor helps provide outstanding image quality and speed, so pictures are clear and sharp.

Building on the image capture functionality of their predecessors, the EOS Rebel T6s and EOS Rebel T6i cameras feature Canon’s new Hybrid CMOS AF III image sensor-embedded autofocus system, which allows for high levels of speed and accuracy when capturing Full HD video or high-resolution photos in Live View. This is particularly useful when capturing children playing sports, or animals in the wild, when it’s imperative to get the shot at the exact moment action is happening. Helping photographers capture those special moments, the cameras have high-speed continuous shooting up to five frames-per-second (fps). For photographers who prefer to compose their images through a viewfinder, the new EOS Rebel T6s and EOS Rebel T6i cameras have a 19-point all cross-type AF system that allows for superb autofocus, as well as focus area selection modes.

Brand-new to the EOS Rebel line, the cameras feature built-in wireless capabilities, which allow users to wirelessly transfer images and videos with ease to compatible smartphones and tablets through Canon’s newly updated and free Camera Connect app.2 Images and videos can also be shared wirelessly to a wide range of popular social networking sites through Canon iMAGE GATEWAY. 3 The camera’s built-in NFC (Near Field Communication)4 allows quick and simple pairing to a compatible Android device, or devices that support NFC like the new Canon Connect Station CS100 photo and video storage and sharing device. The built-in Wi-Fi functionality also allows users to wirelessly print their images to any compatible printer, like the PIXMA MG7520 or PIXMA iP8720.

With an intuitive design that allows for an optimal photographic experience, the new EOS Rebel cameras have a three-inch Vari-Angle Touch Screen Clear View LCD monitor with approximately 1,040,000 dots. This design enables flexible positioning for high or low framed shots, as well as clear viewing even when outdoors in the sunlight. Additionally, the cameras feature the latest version of Canon’s EOS scene analysis system, which helps photographers capture beautiful images in a wider range of situations by detecting near-infrared light and flickering light sources. Also new to the entire EOS system, both models feature color tone detection, which helps ensure individuals in photographs are properly focused and/or exposed by adjusting both autofocus and exposure metering.

Full HD Video Capture
The EOS Rebel T6s and EOS Rebel T6i cameras feature EOS Movie mode which captures Full HD 1080p resolution video up to 30 fps in MP4 format for high quality shooting and easy movie sharing on select social networking sites. Manual exposure control, digital zoom and an external stereo microphone jack are provided for advanced users using the EOS Rebel T6s.

Expanded Creative Functionality
Allowing for full creative control, the new EOS Rebel cameras offer creative filters available as presets for photos and movies. These filters can be displayed in real time during Live View shooting, providing an easy way for users to enhance their creative work. Users can further expand their artistic abilities right from the camera with Creative Filters such as Fisheye Effect, Toy Camera Effect and Monochrome mode. Fisheye Effect gives images a panoramic look and feel, Toy Camera Effect adds a grainy look to soften photos, illustrating a vintage appearance and with Monochrome mode, photos can either have black-and-white, blue or sepia tones, to display a more classic appearance.

Advanced Features & Capabilities
For photographers who desire more advanced features, the EOS Rebel T6s is the first EOS Rebel class DSLR camera to feature a top LCD panel, Quick Control Dial, Horizontal Level and built-in HDR movie capabilities. The new camera is also the first model in the EOS Rebel series to feature Servo AF in Live View, allowing continuous tracking of moving subjects during burst mode shooting sequences.

Availability
The EOS Rebel T6s Digital SLR camera and EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR camera are scheduled to be available at the end of April 2015. The estimated retail price of the EOS Rebel T6s is $849.99 for the body only, and $1,199.00 bundled with an EF-S 18-135 STM lens. The EOS Rebel T6i has an estimated retail price of $749.99 for the body only, $899.99 bundled with an EF-S 18-55 STM lens, and $1,099.00 bundled with an EF-S 18-135 STM lens.

EOS 760D on battery grip

UK Press info

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 6 February 2015 – Canon today unveils two impressive DSLRs in its entry-level EOS line-up – the EOS 760D and EOS 750D – designed to help those with a creative eye reach the next level in their photography. The EOS 750D is the ideal DSLR if you’re looking to capture stunning images and Full HD movies of special memories, with the assurance of automatic shooting modes - while the EOS 760D gives enthusiast photographers more creative freedom and manual controls to instinctively create impactful photography.

Stunning quality photography with every shot
Both cameras make it easier than ever to capture your favourite moments in the quality they deserve – with vibrant colour, sharp focus and rich detail – using the powerful new 24.2MP sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor. Thanks to the ISO 100-12,800 range the EOS 760D and EOS 750D deliver detailed results whatever light you’re shooting in, be it dawn or dusk, or even indoors. In addition, Flicker Detection technology, first found in the EOS 7D Mark II, provides consistently exposed images under artificial light for even greater flexibility.

Enjoy capturing your favourite action moments using the camera’s five frames per second continuous shooting mode, which makes sure that split second action is always caught on camera. The EOS 760D and EOS 750D ensure pin-sharp focus precision, with a powerful 19 cross-type AF point system adapting to any composition, whether it’s shooting fast moving animals on safari, or action packed adventure sports.

Capture your world in movies
Amateur filmmakers can shoot their memories as movies in stunning Full HD resolution and in MP4 format for easy online sharing. You can make sure your subjects are always in focus with advanced Hybrid CMOS AF III providing the ability to track or swap focus, while compatibility with STM lenses provides silent, smooth focusing for supreme accuracy and speed. The EOS 760D also gives budding videographers a host of additional creative movie modes, which makes creating unique footage easy. Shoot atmospheric movies, with detail in both the shadows and highlights with HDR movie mode, or instantly create the effect of professional tilt-shift lenses with Miniature Effect.

Control and creativity at your fingertips
The EOS 760D and EOS 750D’s powerful specifications are packed into expertly engineered compact bodies, with an ergonomic grip and Vari-Angle LCD for easy handling in all situations. Take over the shooting functions with full manual control giving you the freedom to dictate your own creative shooting style. The EOS 760D allows photographers to be more considered with their settings with conveniently placed controls, usually found in Canon’s enthusiast EOS models, including the rear Quick Control Dial, top LCD panel and Intelligent Viewfinder for quick access and review of both settings and images.

As soon as you pick up either camera you can start shooting confidently, with automatic shooting modes ensuring you get the best results every time. Make your pictures stand out from the crowd with a range of easy-to-use, one touch shooting modes and creative filters.

Share on the move, with friends and devices
Once you’ve captured the perfect shot, enjoy the convenience and speed that Wi-Fi and NFC offers to share it quickly and simply with your favourite people and devices. Post your best images on social networks or store on cloud services, such as Canon’s image management service irista, using Wi-Fi for direct uploads. When you’re ready to store or review your pictures, NFC makes it simple and fast to connect and transfer to a Canon Connect Station, or NFC-enabled smart device.

pre-release 750D/T6i Rumours

2015 February

  • 5th Top view of the 760D with a top LCD
  • top view of the Canon 760D
  • The flood of real leaks. suggests that the Dxxx line is being split. The 750D looks more like the 700D in controls layout, whilst the 760D brings a top display and looks more like a xxD model.
  • There is also a hefty jump to 24MP - no dual pixel autofocus
  • Here are the suggested specs for each. Inside, they are probably almost identical.

  • The 750D looks more like a convetional xxxD/Rebel
  • EOS 750D front view
  • 750D top view
  • 4th Updated... it seems that we're looking at two different models? 750D and 760D? [CR]
    • This would be an interesting differentiation to sell to potential camera buyers?
    • Not that it will develop anything like the sheer amount of forum froth that choosing between the 5Ds and 5Ds R will...
  • Is it to be the 760D to avoid naming confusion for dim people and the Nikon D750? [CR]

January

  • 27th It seems that the 750D (T6i) will be announced later next week (see main rumour page)
  • 16thThe mystery camera that appeared in the CS100 promo shots is said to be the latest xxxD (Rebel) APS-C DSLR and due shortly [CR]
  • 13th Discussion rages over the mystery camera in Canon's recent advert...
    • The xxxD range ('Rebel') has been fairly static for several years now.
    • A top display (moving the mode rotary switch - or even getting rid of it entirely) and a new sensor could signify more significant changes in the way different cameras fit into Canon's range.

  • zoomed view of unknown dslr
  • 8th A new partly seen camera might be an 80D, but a 750D is perhaps more likely. Pictures on main rumour page.

2014 November

  • 25th A new xxxD camera is suggested for early next year [CR]
    • The earlier the camera, the less likely we are to see much more than the move from 18MP to 20MP - no more mentions of an EVF that I've seen.

October

  • 1st So, at what point does the Rebel range switch to EVF (Electronic ViewFinder), ditching the mirror box and pentamirror?
  • We've been told (thanks) that the replacement for the 700D will be a Q2 product that will see the first use of an EVF in a Canon DSLR, coupled with versions of the 20MP 70D sensor making use of the power of the Digic 6 processor and split pixel sensor to give performance well beyond the current 700D/100D.
    • I'd note similar ideas from Thom Hogan [TH] discussing the D3300 and D300s successors, so this still goes in my 'speculation' category (as does anything more than 4-6 mths. from an announcement).

September

  • 27th With the new 7D mk2 and 70D now fitted out with the 20MP APS-C sensor, it seems likely that the long lived 700D will last until at least spring of 2015
