Canon Rebel T8i (Canon EOS 850D in European markets) has been announced, the Japanese company’s latest digital SLR camera under its flagship segment alongside the RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM lens. This new Canon EOS digital camera features improvements along the lines of the image processor, video recording, and advanced features such as the addition of Eye AF.
Canon EOS Rebel T8i is positioned as light and compact DSLR. In fact, it’s supposed to be the Canon’s latest Rebel-series flagship camera with a vari-angle touchscreen display, weighing just 515g. It features a 24.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with the Digic 8 image processor. You get a total of 45 autofocus points, along with Dual Pixel autofocus for quick focusing.
The ISO range is 100-25,600 (expandable to 51,200), 7.0 fps burst shooting and this new Canon Rebel camera can also shoot 4K UHD video up to 24fps. The EOS Rebel T8i accepts a single SD card, and there’s also built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for syncing with a smartphone.

The 3-inch touchscreen has a slightly low 1.04 million dot resolution, but it can be flipped 180-degrees, outwards, so shooting selfies or vlogging should be simpler.
