The Canon EOS 850D (or Rebel T8i or Kiss X10i in other parts of the world) is expected to be announced at some point this month, either before or during CP+ in Japan. After a recent leak showed off some of the specs and a couple of “official” photos of the product, Nokishita has posted some more photos of the actual camera itself, ahead of the upcoming announcement.
As a reminder, here are the previously leaked specs.
- Sensor: 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor
- Processor: DIGIC 8
- AF Points: All-cross 45-point AF
- AF: Dual Pixel CMOS AF
- Video: 4K@30fps without cropping
- LCD: 3″ 104 million dot touch panel vari-angle LCD (yeah, I know, we’ll come back to that)
- Continuous shooting speed: “About 7.0” frames per second (“about 7.5” in live view mode)
- Dimensions: 1.31 x 102.6 x 76.2mm
- Weight: 515g (including battery)
Thanks to the new photos, we can confirm a few more features.
It has a microphone input and a mini HDMI output. It also uses micro USB instead of a Type C socket. I’ve no idea why all cameras and devices aren’t coming as standard with Type C sockets these days, even if they don’t support the latest speeds. Type C is just a much more solid socket and cable than micro USB ever was.
It also uses the same Canon LP-E17 batteries as used in the rest of the product line. So, if you’re thinking about upgrading from a previous model and already have a bunch of spares, you can still make use of them.
And then there’s the usual. Flippy out LCD, single SD card slot (I’m going to guess not UHS-II) and a form factor that many users are familiar with.
It shouldn’t be too much longer now before we see official final specs and photos announced by Canon, so we’ll let you know when we hear more.
