Canon has now officially announced the new Canon EOS 850D/Rebel T8i, and it looks like the rumours were mostly true. As an “enthusiast level” DSLR, it houses a 24.1-megapixel APS-C sensor and shoots 4K video. It retains the design of its 800D predecessor, as well as the 45-point all cross-type AF, but offers some nice updates, too.
The EOS 850D/T8i both replaces both the EOS 77D (basically a 750D/T6i but with a top LCD) and the EOS 800D. There’s no top LCD on this one, like the 77D, but an AF-On button has been added to the back for those who prefer back-button-focusing. It also sees a new sensor, new metering system, Eye AF in Live View mode and faster continuous shooting speed.
