The new Canon EOS 850D DSLR camera is the successor to the EOS 77D and 800D models. 850D can be said to be the best of both world

The Canon 850D (also known as the EOS Rebel T8i in the US) has a very similar design to the 800D.

This is a 24 megapixel APS-C DSLR with the latest Digic 8 processor. It offers 7fps burst shooting, Eye Detection AF, Dual Pixel CMOS 45 point all cross-type AF system, 400K pixel AE sensor, and 4K 24/25p cropped video (same as the EOS 250D).

It now features a new Quick Control dial and a new AF-ON button, plus a 3.5mm jack for an external mic.
