The fact that the T5ihas just come out in March 2013 and that it’s almost identical to the Canon T4iand the lightest, smallest Canon camera, the SL1 has also made it debut is causing heated speculation about what comes next with a Canon T6i, due out next year.
All of these are in addition to Canon’s new mirrorless EOS M, considered rather amateurish because there’s no mode dial (Imagine that!) and a focusing speed that is sluggish at best.
So many models…so little time.
Knowing all of this, one has to speculate what Canon going to do with its next camera model, the T6i.
1. Canon won’t make this camera
2. mirrorless (maybe)
3. new sensor
4. smaller body
5. better video capability
6. 18-135mm IS STM (good for video) Lens Kit
7. 20 or more MP
8. last of the Txi series
9. better weatherproofing
10. the usual Canon is on its way out (which has never been the case)
Whatever Canon comes up with is surely to disappoint reviewers. Despite that, the company remains one of the most successful in the digital camera market.
