Canon is rumored to replace the EOS 1100D / Rebel T3 / Kiss X50 with a new low-end DSLR camera whose specs and photo have just been leaked on the web.
This seems to be the season of the leaks. The Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II has just showed up online along with its specs. It has been followed by the Sony A6000 and many other shooters have also revealed their faces.
It is time for another round of leaks, this time concerning the device that will serve as the EOS 1100D / Rebel T3 / Kiss X50 replacement. It has been mentioned before, but now it seems like sources are sure that this DSLR will be unveiled on February 12 and present at the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2014.
Just in time for its launch event, the Canon EOS Kiss X70 specs and photos have been revealed by a source familiar with the company’s business.
Canon EOS Kiss X50 replacement coming soon as Kiss X70
In Japan, it will be sold as Canon EOS Kiss X70, replacing the EOS Kiss X50. In the US, it might be called Rebel T4, while in other countries it could go by the name of EOS 1200D. However, this is all based on speculation, so do not hold your breath over them.
From this photo we can see that the new DSLR’s design is inspired by the design of its predecessor. An important difference seems to be the dial on the top, which has a different texture.
