Rebel XS/1000D Availability [CR3]

They Still Exist!
I’ve received word that Canon Canada has received more stock of the Rebel XS and is allocating the camera to dealers.

No discontinuation for the moment.

Odds & Ends

EOS 60D
A battery charger claiming to charge a battery for a 60D has appeared at Best Buy. It could be the D60, or just a misprint.

60D Appears on a Universal Charger

Rebel XS/1000D
The Rebel XS has been removed from the Vistek web site.

A local store has had the camera on “eternal backorder”.

The camera is still appearing on Canon price lists in the US and Canada.

EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS
Canon Canada recently started instant rebates on select lenses. The 70-200 f/2.8L IS was originally part of the rebate program and has since been removed in favor of the 70-200 f/4L IS.

If you see any current Canon literature on the rebate program (I can’t find it on the web), you’ll see the 70-200 f/2.8L IS still appears on some of the literature in background images and the image for the 70-200 f/4L IS is different than the rest of the lenses on the rebate amount lines.

Canon Canada late to know something? Wouldn’t be the first time.

I’ll post pics of this tomorrow, I don’t have the literature handy.

Could be nothing…

Price Watch EOS
I have updated the Price Watch EOS page. It now includes the 7D. I have removed the 40D and G10 from the page.

Canon Canada Repair Replaces XS with XSi

Free Upgrade!

"Good-bye cruel world"

"Good-bye cruel world"

Canon Canada repair depot has replaced a broken XS with an XSi at no charge. The XS had a broken Main PCB assy(CG2-2259-000) and it was backordered for a month or so. Canon Canada sent a new XSi as a replacement.

This is probably a very good sign production of the XS has ceased and there’s probably low stock everywhere.

2000D/T1 excitement builds!

2000D in May?

Canon EOS Rebel XS (1000D)

Rebel XS

Coming up on one year
The 2000D will be a year old come June, will Canon be releasing a new one?

Northlight points out the Aussie PMA being in June, so perhaps a May announcement?

2000D? I havent heard anything about it. I think Canon may just keep the 1000D around through to Christmas. A $399-$499 dslr perhaps?

Nikon has discontinued the D40, so there’s a hole in the really cheap SLR segment from the big 2. I’ll assume that the D60 will be the new cheapy when Nikon makes their announcements on the 14th of April.

I haven’t seen any imminent discontinuation of the XSi or XS yet. I’ll have to keep an eye on price sheets.

I admit I laughed at Sony for having 3 entry level cameras, but here we are with 3 Rebels. I think at their current price points, they’ll sell a lot of each of them.
