Another possible EOS digital SLR from Canon. Just another Canon camera model number?
This page covers all our EOS 8D info since we started collecting it…
Yes, you’ve found it, the Canon EOS 8D page.
13th A suggestion [CR] that Canon may bring in a model between the 7D mk2 replacement and the 80D replacement.
How about an 8D with ~70MP, which would be the rough APS-C equivalent of Canon’s 120MP APS-H sensor ;-)
Well, here’s the Canon timeline – am I going to have to insert a new row in it in the DSLR area…
|Best||Full||1Ds||1Ds II||1Ds III||1D X||1DX II||1DX III|
|1.3||1D||1D II||1D IIn||1D III||1D IV|
|5D||5D II||5D III||5D IV|
|1.6||7D||7D Mk II|
|750D T6i||800D T7i||850D T8i|
|Micro||1.6||100D SL1 X7||200D SL2||250D|
|Entry||1.6||1000D / XS / F||1100D / T3 / X50||1200D T5 X70||1300D T6||2000D T7|
Note: dates start in announcement quarter, not shipping dates. Video capable 4k 8k
Digic | Digic 2 | Digic 3 dual | Digic 4 dual | Digic 5 dual | Digic 6 dual | Digic 7 dual | Digic 8 dual | Digic X dual
…of course, it could be the EOS 9D or nothing at all.
24th A mention [CR] that there may be a new ‘nameplate’ coming and 8D sounds as good as any ;-)
22nd Looks like we’re getting a 7D mk2 next month. No fancy new sensors this time round…
17th Another on-line shop posts some specs for an 8D
“Body features: APS-C size digital SLR
Effective pixels: 16.2 million
Mode of operation: full manual operation
Video Interface: AV Interface
Flash Type: External
External flash (hot shoe): Yes
Focus Points: 45 points”
As with the majority of ‘on-line shop leaks’ I’d suggest that a very big pinch of salt is taken ;-)
17th the Canon 6D is announced (20MP full frame)
26th No mentions since 2010, but now there are suggestions for a lower MP ‘introductory’ FF camera at CR
2010 August 22nd
No mention of the 8D at all in the last year
2009 September 9th
No information whatsoever, so move along…
A new EOS camera…
