Photography Bay is showing a list of features for the upcoming replacement of the Canon EOS 50D. Already??? Sure, it seems a bit early to start talking about this one. Did I say rumour?
Anyway, here are the (rumoured) features:
- 15.1MP sensor (no resolution changes, improved IQ?)
- New 13 Point AF
- 1080p Movie Mode
- Continuous shooting: 8 fps
- 3″ VGA LCD
- Viewfinder: 98% coverage
- New battery model
- Weather-sealing (this one would be really nice)
- Ergonomic Upgrades
- Memory slots: 1x Compact Flash & 1x Secure Digital
The more important “information” may be a forecast of the launch date: Fall 2009.
And there is also an intersting tidbit: This camera may be breaking the naming conventions of the Canon EOS line. For sure, this is more rumour than fact: No marketing department would bet on a name as early as that…
