New Canon 80D rumors are circling on the web, stating that the DSLR will employ a higher-megapixel count than the previous gossips said, which surfaced earlier in September 2015, were saying.
About ten days into this month, a source claimed that Canon would introduce the EOS 70D replacement during the second quarter of 2016. In addition to the timeframe for its announcement, the leakster has also provided some specifications, which are now being contradicted by a more trusted source.
It seems like the so-called EOS 80D will not employ a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, as the one found in the EOS 750D and EOS 760D. In the end, the DSLR will show up on the market with a sensor that will offer between 28 to 34 megapixels.
Latest Canon 80D rumors: the DSLR will have 28 to 34 megapixels
Canon Rumors is reporting that there is a lot of time left until the launch of a successor to the EOS 70D. As usual, this means that it is too early to hand out any definitive specs.
Nevertheless, the company is planning its next steps and it seems like it has decided that megapixels matter. They mean a lot to consumers and the Japanese maker will offer them enough megapixels to make the current generation forgotten.
According to the latest Canon 80D rumors, the DSLR will have a 28 to 34-megapixel sensor. It is likely that the company is still testing the best amount, which will be determined at a later date.
As for the remainder of the previously-leaked specs list, it may still change in the meantime, so do not take anything for granted, yet.
Canon may announce the EOS 80D by the end of 2015
Getting back to the EOS 80D announcement date, the DSLR camera might be unveiled sooner than expected. The leakster is stating that we should not rule out a launch by the end of this year.
Canon may decide to reveal the 70D replacement in 2015, but the release date will definitely be scheduled for sometime in 2016.
As a comparison, the 70D had been introduced in July 2013 and launched shortly after that. We have to note that a Q2 2016 unveiling would make more sense than a Q4 2015 one, but Canon fans would not mind to see the camera becoming official sooner rather than later.
You should stay tuned to Camyx for more Canon 80D rumors, which are expected to be leaked soon. In the meantime, check out the EOS 70D at Amazon where it is available for under $1,000.
