Ahead of the official announcement later this week, the two new Canon Rebel models have leaked out. They will carry the model names Canon 750D and 760D outside of North America and should retain the Canon Rebel branding as successors to the Canon Rebel T5i here in the US.
As you can see in the image above, there is a clear indication of a WiFi antenna in the 750D, which we already know will feature built-in NFC for compatibility with the Canon CS100 set-top box. There is also a WiFi icon in the LCD for the 760D. This had been part of previously rumored specs for the 750D and 760D cameras.
Canon 750D and 760D Rumored Specifications
- Full HD movies, MP4 format, HDR movie, automatic shooting modes (EOS 750D )
- 24.2MP sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor
- ISO 100-12,800 range
- Flicker Detection technology
- Five frames per second continuous shooting mode
- 19 cross-type AF point system
- Hybrid CMOS AF III
- Rear Quick Control Dial (EOS 760D )
- Creative movie modes (EOS 760D )
- Wi-Fi and NFC
While the Canon 750D was set apart in the prior spec list as the only one with a video recording designation, the dual mic holes on the 760D suggest it will be a hybrid stills and video shooter as well, and probably a little more advanced than the 750D
The Canon 750D appears to be more of a direct successor to the T5i with its simple control layout and basic features, while the 760D has some options we seen on the Canon 70D and its predecessors, like the top LCD and a locking mode dial on the left shoulder of the camera.
Even the entry level T6 & T6i are getting 19 point cross type AF system (from 7D and 70D) and Flicker Detection (from the 7D Mark II)? Nice! I wonder what type of AF system will the 6D Mark II and 5D Mark IV be! I hope the dynamic range of these new sensors will perform as well as Sony designed sensor which are in most of the current DSLR and MILC systems except Canon and Fuji.

Agreed. For the first time in several years, Canon is really exciting me with its DSLR releases.
What I can’t understand is, why is Canon diluting the Photography market with so many models that you cannot keep up with. They should learn from Toyota and Honda with only few car models and yet the demands for their cars are great. I bet you that most of these models intended for mass market are either made in Thailand or other parts of Asia- made of plastic chassis and not meant to last more than 2 or 3 years. What I’d like for Canon to do is upgrade their heavy L lenses that are older than 10 years or more to a lighter more compact ones with image stabilizer but with the same high quality status.
