Canon announced three cameras recently. You may have only heard about two of them: the Canon EOS M50 and the Canon Rebel T7. Both of these cameras are positioned as entry-level cameras (although I don't agree with this designation for the M50 given its advanced features and specs) but the third camera Canon announced is very entry-level in every sense of the term.
