Thread: Canon EOS 50D

  1. #1

    Post Canon EOS 50D

    Pre-Photokina2008: No surprises to hear that Canon has launched the much anticipated EOS 50D, an upgraded version of EOS 40D. On the surface it looks almost similar to its predecessor. However, there are quite a few significant improvements; fifteen megapixel CMOS sensor, faster DIGIC 4 processor, 3.0" VGA LCD monitor with Live View mode offering 3 AF modes, ISO sensitivity expandable to 12800 and an HDMI connection for high Quality Image viewing. It also includes a new Quick Control screen which shows the most commonly used settings and Creative Auto mode for automatic focus and exposure. We're expecting to be able to bring you a full in-hands preview later today.

    How much more real does it need to be? dpreview NEVER reports rumors, and this is a Canon press release.

    We only need 3 more things : availability date, price, and a review we can trust.

    Hmm...can start searching Buy/Sell for 40Ds now...

    "Canon’s new DIGIC 4 processor is fast enough to allow up to 6.3fps continuous shooting, in bursts of up to 90 JPEGs with a UDMA card." - does that mean that the new 1D Mark IV/IIIn or 5D Mk II/7D whatever with dual Digic 4 processor can hit 12.6fps???

    sadly no, burst rate depends on a lot of factor, sensor readout rate/shutter burst rate/mirror flap rate... etc

    I don't mind the model hitting our shores a bit late. Let the initial pricing settle down first.

    Now we can start a rumour for the 50D's successor, the 60D!
