Continuing the great line of super-zoom point and shoot cameras, Canon has announced the S5 IS (what happened to the S4 IS?). [Read more…]
Or, so the latest rumor has it.
The Canon retailer in Paris where I bought a lot of stuff just told me that Canon has annonced them the 40D will the there in July. They did not get any details (except it will be an EF-S compatible camera), but they say that the 5D replacement will not ship this year.
For what it is worth…
Another FM user, wimg, bolsters the rumor’s credence and adds a little extra juice to it:
Spoke with 2 Canon reps, over the last 6 weeks or so, and one of the major retailers’ store owners over here.
The 40D is expected in store at the end of June, and at the latest the beginning of July. This is what they said. No specs, though.
Furthermore, the replacement for the 1Ds MkII is expected in September, and at the latest beginning of December. [see page 4]
Whatever its worth, it’s another rumor for us to chew on. I can’t imagine the marketing from Canon would hold on much longer if it really will be there in July. The coming days will tell.
Finally, to throw a little more fuel on the fire, Peter Bernik over at PMA Rumors reports that he has received the same information from an independent source.

A couple of new reviews have surfaced for the new Canon 1D Mark III.
You can check them out at Rob Galbraith’s site and Imaging Resource. There is plenty to read along with an ample amount of sample shots, including some comparisons with the 1D Mk II.

Nothing solid on the Canon 40D lately. However, this was found in the forums on April 2nd:
OK, I just called my Boston Camera Man to find out what he has heard on this. He talked to the Canon Rep last week, who confirmed that Canon is the most Closed Mouth Company on new stuff coming out. The rep “hinted” that a new 10mp model should be coming out “soon”.
Now to get all you Daddy Big Bucks drooling, he also hinted that Canon has tested a 20mp model.
Credibility? Eh. I think we can all speculate this info ourselves. I’ll let you know when something more solid develops. Question for the day: How much more can the Canon 30D price drop? That’s all for now.
B&H has the price listed for the Canon EOS 1D Mk III at $4,495 with an estimated availability for May 2007.
I’ll take two please. ; )

You don’t have to have top of the line gear to take top of the line photos. This shot was captured with the Canon Rebel XTi/400D at 18mm, f/7.1, and ISO 100.
What makes this shot so great isn’t the camera – it’s the composition. The wide angle from the ground eye view adds some power to the lone tree on the horizon. Also, note the effective use of the rule of thirds for the horizon and the main subject.
