Say hello to the new Canon EOS 850D (worldwide) / Canon EOS Rebel T8i (North America), the manufacturer's new enthusiast DSLR – a lightweight, versatile and connected 24-megapixel machine, powered by Canon’s latest speedy tech and featuring 4K video capability.

The Canon EOS 850D / Canon Rebel T8i is the successor to two separate bodies: the one-off Canon EOS 77D (like a 750D / T6i but with small top LCD plate), and Canon EOS 800D / Canon EOS Rebel T7i, both launched back in early 2017.
