Mystery Canon DSLR leaked by Best Buy – Mini DSLR on the way?

canon-dslr-best-buy-leak.jpgSeems like someone over at Best Buy has got a little bit trigger happy with publish button for their website. The US retailer has blown the cover off a mystery, as-yet-unannounced new Canon DSLR, spilling the beans on the specs before the camera manufacturer has had the opportunity to reveal it.

The listing is for an “EOS-b” kit, priced at $799.99 (around £530). It’s packing in an 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor, a 3-inch preview screen and a standard EF-S 18-55mm Zoom lens kit.

The listing has since been pulled offline.

Without official word from Canon not much is yet known about the camera. But its spec sheet and pricing certainly seem to align with rumours that Canon are working on a compact “Mini DSLR” model in order to combat the growing threat of small mirrorless compact cameras.

According to Canonrumours, who’ve seen a listed weight as being 13.1 oz, Canon’s new snapper could be light too.

We’ll keep you posted on any announcements about Canon’s mystery kit as we hear it.
