Canon is rumored to announce the EOS 1300D DSLR camera in the near future. Before its official unveiling, trusted sources have leaked its specs list, hinting at minor improvements compared to its predecessor.
Back in February 2014, Canon introduced an entry-level DSLR known as the EOS 1200D. Usually, lower-end products are replaced at a much faster rate, but two years have passed and its successor is not here.
This may change soon, as insiders have provided the specs of a so-called Canon EOS 1300D, which sounds like a replacement to the EOS 1200D. Another thing that seems to confirm this speculation is the fact that the specs list is fairly identical to the one of its predecessor. Here is what you need to know before the official announcement!
Leaked specs of Canon EOS 1300D DSLR signalling its imminent announcement
Canon EOS 1300D will feature an 18-megapixel CMOS APS-C-sized image sensor, just like the EOS 1200D. The DSLR will be powered by a DIGIC 4+ image processor, which is only a minor improvement over its predecessor’s DIGIC 4 unit.
Its processing engine will allow the camera to shoot up to 3fps in burst mode, the same speed as the one found in the 1200D. Moreover, the 1300D will come packed with full HD video recording and support for Video Snapshot.
As for stills, the camera offers Scene Intelligent Auto and a bunch of creative filters. On the back, buyers will find a 3-inch display, meaning that the screen size has not been increased compared to the previous generation.
The source who leaked the information also revealed that the native ISO sensitivity range of the camera will stand between 100 and 6400. The ISO can be extended through built-in settings to a maximum of 12800.
It is worth noting that the EOS 1200D offers identical ISO options to its users, so a lot of people will be wondering what is new. Well, it seems like the new Canon EOS 1300D comes packed with built-in WiFi and NFC technologies.
This is becoming a standard these days as more and more photographers are demanding easier ways to transfer files to a smartphone or tablet. Although it is not specified, it is likely that users will be able to remotely control exposure settings and to fire the shutter via a mobile device.
The dimensions of the DSLR have showed up on the web, too. It will measure 129 x 101.3 x 77.6 millimeters, while weighing 485 grams. These leaks happen shortly before the official announcement, so stay tuned for it!
