The Canon 750D DSLR camera is rumored to be announced during the second quarter of 2015 and to become the first camera of the series to employ an electronic viewfinder instead of an optical model.
The first quarter of 2013 delivered a new entry-level EOS DSLR camera with an APS-C sensor for Canon fans. The 700D / Rebel T5i has been unveiled as a replacement for the 650D / Rebel T4i towards the end of March with few changes when compared to its predecessor.
It appears that Canon is feeling that the right time to substitute the 700D has come. The rumor mill is claiming that a new shooter will be added to to xxxD / Rebel range in the second quarter of next year.
The product in question could be called 750D / Rebel T6i and it could feature an electronic viewfinder instead of the regular optical viewfinder found in DSLR cameras.
Canon 750D / Rebel T6i DSLR camera set to employ an electronic viewfinder
Canon has been rumored before to ditch the optical viewfinder in entry-level DSLRs. However, this time it might really happen, as a source is reporting that the EOS 750D / Rebel T6i will sport an electronic viewfinder.
Almost all DSLRs are using mirrors to allow photographers to compose their shots. Such system is commonly referred to as an optical viewfinder and it is in place in order to reproduce the frame accurantely.
In recent times, mirrorless camera have been gaining ground, but they are using electronic viewfinders. Basically, an EVF is a display where the scene in front of the camera is produced electronically.
Usually, EVFs have lag, but they have become better lately, so Canon is definitely considering to add EVFs to its EOS / Rebel line-up. As the mirror box will be gone, this could also lead to smaller devices and we all know that miniaturization is an important part when designing contemporary cameras.
Dual Pixel technology and 20.2-megapixel sensor to make their way into Canon 750D’s specs list
The Canon 750D / Rebel T6i is rumored to feature a similar sensor as the one found in the 70D, which consists of a 20.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS unit.
Additionally, the DSLR will be powered by a DIGIC 6 image processor and it will most likely come packed with Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. The latter will allow the camera to focus a lot faster when using the Live View mode and, in this case, the electronic viewfinder.
With all these new tools, the 750D will be a major improvement over the 700D. Nevertheless, this is just a rumor and you will have to take it with a pinch of salt.
Meanwhile, Amazon is selling the Rebel T5i with an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens and some accessories for a price of only $699.
