It looks like both the S95 and G12 have high dynamic range mode... not something I really thought about before but now I have thought about it, I wonder if the 60D will have it!

Hopefully not long to wait now...

I doubt the 60D would have the HDR mode.  60D is geared more towards "professionals" and HDR in the point'n'shoots is somewhat gimmicky.

I am curious how well this HDR mode works.  Does it process them completely in camera...into a CR2?  ;)

(EDIT): On the other hand, we can look at the old "direct print" button to counter my first argument!

I'm really dubious about the G12 emerging as shown in the earlier rumor (plus the supposed "press release" was just a G11 press release with the names exchanged).  it might be heading in the right direction (yes larger sensor please) but I doubt that's the exact form factor.

that sd4500 is kind of ugly, not sure whats going on with the two-tone colors and the weird angular sculpting taken a step too far ...

good to see non-handicapped movie mode in the new S95

Looking at the leaked specs of the upcoming 16 MP Sony A55 (10 fps???) and 16 MP Nikon D95 (39 AF points???), it looks like the Canon 60D has some serious competition ahead. Canon better release something more than a 7D/50D rehash.

I second that.

Canon needs to come to the table with some interesting features and ensure that the basics, such as focus, are up to par.

Cheers.

Direct print is great for spot meter and additional ISO on my 400d. ;)

The Nikon D3100 has just been released. Full time auto focus in video mode - 1,920 x 1,080 (24p): 24 fps (23.976 fps) • 1,280 x 720 (30p): 30 fps (29.97 fps). All this from a $699.95 w/kit lens camera. What will the D90 replacement specs look like??? Sure hope Canon has been paying attention and tops these new Nikons.

How about  another picture? I'm certain the one posted last week was real. Shame it has gone plastic. Will be lighter though and hopefully less expensive. And hopefully smaller. I think a $1099 retail will move the body nicely.

I was thinking the same thing, Canon better bring their A game, there is some really good stuff coming to market...and I hate to go through the trouble of selling all my gear, but if the Nikon proves to be the better camera I may make the switch. :o Which sucks because I love Canon lenses. :'(

I really don't like the flip out screen, I though I might but it just looks too cumbersome, but I will wait for the reviews and handle them all before  go through he pains of moving.

I hear the d80 and d90 are supposed to be the opposing bodies for the 40d and 50d. If thats the case, how is it nikons only go up to 1/4000?

I'm having a hard time getting my head around some of the comments here.

Would anyone really switch camera systems for 39 autofocus points? Or for 10 fps? I certainly can see the appeal of auto focus in video mode (If I shot video), but from the leaked specs so far, it seems like the differences between brands are likely to represent mainly incremental changes.

Maybe I'm missing something here.

And, if anyone with a lot of Canon glass does decide to switch systems I'm interested. ;)

I agree, I must be missing something too. The glass is more important to me than a gimmicky body. Would never switch to Nikon over a fancy body. One thing that would make me switch! Come out with a sensor that gives ISO100 quality at ISO6400. Anything outside of that and I'll continue using my 40d until I can afford a fullframe.

If the 'HDR' mode is like the others, it will just be the 3 frames merged into a tone mapped jpg. if they make it a 12-14bit tiff, that will be a step in the right direction.

So which one of the news is CR3 now? The one about the 60D or the G12 or the lenses....?
First it's 19th, then 24th and now 26th hope it's final some day....
The time scale might be shifting, but the number of days it is shifting by is getting smaller :D

Yeah, I know, I'm desperate to hear about the 60D and will cling onto anything I can get until any NDA is lifted.

I'm sure the wait will be over by the time Photokina takes place 8)

There is at least one CR3 for sure: our man is getting married in September and it might result in probable new "body releases" ;-)
I thought it would be an August 26th announcement... (not the actual release though ;))
