“Since its inception, the EOS Rebel product line has aimed to provide imaging excellence for entry-level visual storytellers,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon USA, Inc. “Therefore, it was imperative that the next step in the EOS Rebel journey include innovative features such as 4K video and a Digic 8 image processor to meet the needs of emerging photographers, while living up to the high-image quality and compact size EOS Rebel DSLRs are known for.”

In addition, its Digic 8 processor improves autofocus performance and allows for the processing of 4K video as well as 4K time-lapse movies. The camera also delivers nine AF points across its optical viewfinder. This includes a new spot AF, which allows users to focus on a precise area within the subject.
