After the specs of the Canon EOS 1300D appeared on the web, the rumor mill leaked the first photos of the DSLR, once again hinting that the device will be revealed in the near future.
Trusted sources have recently leaked the specifications of a so-called Canon EOS 1300D DSLR. The shooter is meant to replace the EOS 1200D soon, as such leaks usually occur right before the official announcement of a product.
If anybody needed more clues that this is true, insiders have also provided the first Canon 1300D photos, clearly showing the camera’s name and some minor design tweaks compared to its predecessor. Here is the DSLR in its full glory!
The first Canon 1300D photos have been leaked online
The specs list of the 1300D has been shown to be almost identical to the one the 1200D. This means that the new device will only be a minor evolution of its forerunner, therefore people should not expect major breakthroughs.
The first Canon 1300D photos are saying the same thing as the specifications. The design of the new model has not suffered many changes compared to the older unit, so potential buyers will see a familiar face and button placement.
On the back and on the top, the buttons are in the exact same locations as they were in the 1200D. However, some of them, such as the Menu button, have had their shapes slightly altered.
The manual control dial is on the top along with the on/off lever and the flash button. Additionally, users will find the shutter button and the hot shoe for mounting external accessories, like a flash gun, should the built-in one prove to be ineffective.
As for the back, the 3-inch LCD screen appears to be the same, just like the built-in optical viewfinder. A big change is the wireless notification light and logo. The 1300D will feature integrated WiFi and NFC, so Canon has added a notification light to show the status of the connectivity.
This is pretty much everything we can tell from the first Canon 1300D photos. The rest comes from the previously leaked specs, which include an 18-megapixel sensor, DIGIC 4+ processor, full HD video recording, and a maximum native ISO of 6400, which can be expanded up to 12800.
The official announcement will most likely take place by the end of next week, so stay tuned to Camyx!
