A new Canon EOS camera - the 750D?EOS 750D - Rebel T6i?

An eventual replacement for the 700D / Rebel T5i

We've previously thought that the XXXD range number advances by 50 each 12/18 months, but it can vary... ;-)

Expected some time in 2015 ??

Latest 750D/T6i Rumours

2015 January

  • 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.
    • Model MP Digic Announcement date Months to next launch

    • 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.

      Thanks again - Keith and Karen at Northlight Images

      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

    April

    • 13th The 750D is suggested as a Q3 product (main rumours page).

    March

    • 2nd The early Rebels (300/350) were the longest lived at 18 mths.
    • With the 7D, 700D, 100D and now 1200D all using effectively the same(ish) 18MP sensor
    • What for the 750D?
    • The 7D is by far the oldest and most needing of an update [7D2]. Current suggestions are that it's on it's way in the next few months.
    • An August announcement for the 750D, with a ~20MP sensor and some form of sensor phase AF (based on the 70D sensor), would allow for cameras ready for the Christmas sales season.
      • The rough estimates of lifetimes below, don't allow for the fact that Canon continues selling older models for quite some time. See the full Canon timeline below for a graphical comparison of camera lifetimes
    • Model Announcement date Months to next launch

    2014 January

    • 16th The 1200D updates the bottom of the line to 18MP
    • 15th Smaller camera(s) [CR] for CP+ (750D/150D or Canon G2X/G1 X Mk2) rather than a 7D2?

    2013 September

    • 30th Looking at the timeline below, the 750D should get a version of the 20MP sensor from the 70D, with the dual pixel AF architecture, along maybe with Digic 6.

    March

    • 21st In rather a rush, the 9 month old 650D is superceded by the 700D - not a particularly big jump in specifications or features. A smaller 100D also appears.
    • The 700D uses the Digic 5 processor, although the Digic 6 was announced in two Powershot cameras today

    2012 July

    • 28th Given other manufacturers using Sony APS-C sensors, are Canon likely to have got to at least 24MP by the time the 750D appears?
    • Will this be the first Canon DSLR with an EVF (electronic viewfinder)

    2012 June
