Alongside the announcement of the impressive Canon EOS R5, Canon also introduced a new entry-level DSLR camera: the Canon EOS Rebel T8i, also known as EOS 850D for European shooters. This new DSLR camera features the same 24.1MP APS-C CMOS image sensor as its predecessor, the Rebel T7i, and is seen by many as Canon’s commitment to its line of DSLR cameras with EF-mounts. Let’s take a closer look at it!
Canon EOS Rebel T8i – a T7i Revamp?
The Canon EOS Rebel line of cameras originally came out in 2003 with the Digital Rebel/300D. But, some of you probably remember more of the Rebel T2i/550D that came out in 2010 (here’s my colleague Nino’s review of the T2i/550D from 2010). Indeed, the T2i featured the same image sensor as the EOS 7D. Also, it was one of the first affordable DSLR cameras capable of shooting 1080P videos. Fast-forward ten years ahead with the recent announcement of the Canon EOS Rebel T8i.
