Canon 760D and 750D camera was announced a year ago, till now all the veteran rumor mills and tipsters are silent on 800D arrival, finally we decided to put some light on this issue by looking at the announcement pattern of Canon Rebel series DSLRs.
One thing is sure that next DSLR will going to be called Canon 800d or T7i. let’s take a look at table below and some analysis
|March 06, 2016||Canon T6|
|Feb 18th, 2016||Canon 80D|
|Feb 6, 2015||Canon 750D / 760D|
|Feb 12, 2014||Canon 1200D|
|Sep 15, 2014||Canon 7D Mark II|
|March 21, 2013||Canon 700D / T5i|
|June 8, 2012||Canon 650D / T4i|
As you can see Canon T6 was announced on March 06, 2016 and Canon 80D on 18 Feb, 2016. Keep in mind both camera announced in 2016 are not mid-entry level camera, the T6 is a entry level and Canon 80D belongs to high-end group.
Now If we look at 2015 announcements, Canon 750D and 760D both camera with almost same core specification announced on Feb 6, 2015. The Canon T6s / 760D features bit more external controls and top display compared to Canon 750D camera. [Specification comparison here]
On 2014 Canon added a entry level DSLR 1200D in the market and a Professional 7D Mark II camera with new Dual-pixel CMOS sensor on Sep, 15 2014. Again no rebel series announced this year.
and before 2014 Canon was updating its rebel series camera every year. But from past 3 to 4 years Canon changed its update pattern for APS-C DSLRs, as we have said already that before 2013 Canon was updating the Rebel series DSLRs every year, but after 2013 they changed the plan, Now after every 2 year they are releasing Rebel series camera updates.
Canon Next Canon 800D is expected to arrive on February Or March of 2017. So if every thing goes according to schedule the camera will arrive on Q1 of Next Year.
