Best Buy leaks unannounced Canon EOS-b DSLR

If you’re a fan of photography looking for new DSLR camera from Canon, a new shooter has been tipped by Best Buy. The camera turned up on the Best Buy website without any pictures, but the full specifications and pricing did tagalong. According to Best Buy, the camera can be pre-ordered right now for $799.99.

The camera is called the Canon EOS-b and is an 18-megapixel camera that comes with an EF-S 18-55 mm zoom lens. The camera is expected to go official on March 22. The product specifications on Best Buy show that the camera will have a DIGIC 5 image processor and a 3-inch color TFT-LCD screen on the back. That screen has a resolution of 1,040,000 pixels and is touch sensitive.

The camera will record high-definition movies and has Movie Servo AF to keep your subject in focus while filming video. The camera also has an integrated monaural microphone and Video Snapshot feature with integrated editing capability. The listing calls out the ability to shoot photos at four frames per second.

Other features include an ISO range of 100-12,800 that can be expanded to 25,600. The camera has a nine point autofocus system, and optical viewfinder, built-in flash, and integrated optical image stabilization. It also has white balance controls, scene modes, advanced imaging features, and integrated face detection technology. The features sound pretty good for the money and it’s unclear exactly when you might expect to receive the camera if you pre-order.
