The Canon 50D is official!

I’ve been a Canon fan for years. So every time there’s a new dSLR model coming up, I get excited as well as a bit sad since it reminds me that my own gear is growing old. This is the same feeling I have with the announcement of the Canon 50D.

The 15.1 megapixel camera supports an ISO of 12800 (awesome for very low light conditions).

canon 50d


– DIGIC 4 image processor
– ISO 100 – 12800 support
– 3.0-inch LCD Live View with face detection
– HDMI output
– 6.3fps burst mode

The camera kit includes a Canon’s EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens. Coming out this October 2008 for $1,399 (body only) or $1,599 with kit.

The Nikon D90 has some serious competition again.

    This one is up against the D300 not the D90.

    canon 5d vs. nikon d700 (full frame semi-pro cams)
    canon 30/40/50d vs. nikon d100/200/300
    canon 350/400/450d vs. nikon d40x/d60

    nikon d80 and d90 seem to be out of place.
