Is it really?
I’ve been told that a 1Ds Mark IV announcement can be expected for the Canon EXPO & Photokina. Availability of the camera could be some time after (2 months?).
Canon will make a “big splash” this fall with 3 digital SLR’s and a “revolutionary” PowerShot.
Too good to be true?
Steven Alvarez posted that his friend is indeed testing the 1Ds Mark IV.
Yeah, weird rating! I know the source, but they have about a 50% batting average.
…. A Canon rep said
The August 11 announcement date is brought up again. This time from a Canon Rep in the southern hemisphere.
“The 50D and SX1 replacements will be announced next week.”
A few more confirmations of the S90 not appearing on new pricing lists in a few countries.
No lenses mentioned for next week yet. This makes me think there will be 2 rounds of announcements.
1Ds Mark IV
Stephen Alvarez (NG Photographer) posted a tidbit of information on his blog. 4-5 people sent this link in, so I’ll pass it onto the rest.
“A friend told me that there are some Canon 1ds MK IV test models floating around.”
I was just told the S90 has officially reached EOL (End of Life).
I received info that this is a timeframe that a new DSLR would be announced. I wasn’t told which model. Just that it would be as revolutionary as the 5D Mark II was. I was promised better information from this person in the next couple of weeks.
There we have it
I was getting worried because the 60D info was still on the DXO site last night.
However, it’s gone now.
I still receive emails that there will be “no 60D”, it’s safe to say this confirms those emails incorrect and we should see 60D’s starting to ship in late September or into October.

This may quiet the folks that keep mailing cr that there will be “no 60D”.
I checked the site hard to make sure there was no way for people to add this info, as has happened with previous DXo “leaks”.
There isn’t a D30 or 10D on this list either, so I will say it isn’t a D60 typo that can be common.

Yes or no?
A very good source has come out and said the 60D is just “around the corner” and will feature a flip LCD.
This was the only spec given at this time.
