…. 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.
Received some information today about new PowerShot cameras.
Backlit CMOS sensor
Minor ergonomic changes
Same as the G12, with some ergonomic changes.
New backlit CMOS sensor.
Lithium Ion Battery
D20 & D30
Two new Waterproof models.
One will have HD video.
Unknown sensor and zoom.
Do not expect any of these cameras before September I’m told.
