The PowerShot lineup will receive its updates. There will also be 2 SLR's according to multiple sources. The obvious 60D/7D camera and a 2000D/T1.

Another email stated August 25, 2009 would be the day for announcements, but my money is on the 19th.

  1. Actually a lot TV commercials, documentaries, and indie film projects are using the 5D2 now because it is 1080p 50mbs – definately full HDTV quality. There’s even a music video out with RED 3K, 5D2 and GH1 footage and they all look good. The reason they aren’t using Nikon’s is they are only 720p – fine for web upload or playing home movies on your HDTV, but not for real production.

    Canon has clearly targeted pro HD and indie markets with the 5D2. Nikon is not, at this point they are targeting amatures with it.

  2. This is one of the factors why Canon is selling fine the 5d2 and the T1i. People says: I prefer to pay a few bucks more and get full HD because is better without knowing that there is no difference in their TVs or PCs.

    However, Canon needs to resolve the autofocus limiting issue.

    I think that HD video is not bad at all and saves me another few grams in my traveling bag. This is a nice to have feature that it is paying itself for the companies
