If you're still waiting for the Canon EOS Rebel T8i, aka the Canon EOS 850D, you're going to be waiting a while longer as the camera still isn't available. Canon meanwhile is getting ready for what it claims is its "biggest product launch yet" later this week, which will be livestreamed on 09 July.

A number of cameras were affected by the current coronavirus outbreak, but none have been delayed as much as the Canon EOS 850D / Rebel T8i. Canon's newest DSLR was announced on Valentine's Day, but immediately was almost impossible to actually buy.
