Canon unveils EOS 550D or Rebel T2i

Due to connection problems, this has been posted a day late. We apologise for the incident.

Canon has released the latest in its range of consumer DSLRs, the Rebel T2i or EOS 550D, as predicted two days ago.

The new DSLR includes 1080p HD video recording (with full manual control), an 18MP CMOS sensor, up to ISO 6400, a 3-inch 3:2 LCD with 1040k dot resolution, as well as the 63-point iFCL metering system, as seen on the EOS 7D.

The new Rebel also faetures redesigned buttons, 3.7 fps continous shooting, +/-5 stops exposure compensation and UI support for Eye-Fi cards.


Chance of 5D Mark III this year

A source has informed Canon Rumors that the 5D Mark III (or 5D MK III) may be out sooner than predicted in the 5D three-year-cycle release dates.

It says that Canon has bumped the 5D MK III’s release by up to 6 months, meaning that it may be within reach within the upcoming months (or later this year), since the 5D Mark II was released in 2008. The rumour also states that the 5D MK III will be receiving an AF system similar to the 7D, and that video functions will be improved.

The source also says the somewhat popular rumour of a 3D is a myth.

However, do note that this source does not have a high level of reliability (previously unheard source) that CR can recommend.


Hasselblad is counting down to something – but what?

Update: Hasselblad has included another teaser on their site, which says this:

Camera Tech assumes that it is something not dissimilar to Canon’s World Of EOS service.

Note: they are counting down to the night of 31st; exactly the midnight between January and February.

What is Hasselblad counting to?

On this countdown on their website, Hasselblad has a countdown. But to what?

Sony A450 released and official

Sony has just released its A450 DSLR. Sony has had a notorious past of having its new, upcoming models leaked: we’ve speculated on the Sony A450 earlier today, as well as earlier in December,

The Sony Alpha 450 comes in below the A500. It features the same APS-C 14.2 MP CMOS sensor as the A55o, although without the latter’s Live View ability as well as the tilt and flip LCD screen, although it does have SteadyShot INSIDE (Sony’s body-integrated image stabilisation). Instead, it has a 2.6″ (6.7cm) display, the same as the A230. Similarly, it has the same role that the A230 does in the A3XX range, except with better ergonomics and a larger battery (from the A5XX series). The reduced features help increase battery life to over 1000 shots (standard test methods). It does not feature a video mode.

Specifications are as below:

  • 14.2 megapixels
  • 2.7-inch LCD
  • 95 percent field of view (for optical viewfinder)
  • 1,050-shot battery life (according to CIPA when using optical viewfinder)
  • Maximum 7fps burst mode or 5fps continuous mode
  • Sensor-shift image stabilizer
  • Memory Stick PRO Duo and SD/SDHC compatible
  • Pricing and availability TBA (although will be under $1000 USD, RRP)

    Possible Sony a450 – in two days at CES 2010?

    Update: the Sony Alpha 450 has been released.

    From the pictures shown below, the previously speculated Sony a450 could very well be released in two days at CES 2010 – possibly the reason why Sony is holding a press conference on Jan 6th.

    It is expected to not have a video mode.


    New Canon Powershot cameras?

    According to Canon Rumors, Canon has a few Powershot cameras up its sleeve.

    We quote (note: these rumours are unconfirmed):

    A 2nd waterproof added to the lineup.

    There could be a slimmer and trimmer version of the D10 coming down the pipe. It would be an addition to the lineup and not a replacement of the very successful D10. It would be 12mp, have 720p video and have a depth rating of 10 feet.

    Possibly the most successful line of ELPH cameras, the SD1xxx series will receive a bit of a makeover. Expect to see a 2.7 inch screen and a slimmer body shape.

    The replacement of the SX200 will be along the same lines with a new selection of colours and a user selectable popup flash.

    …stuff should start rolling after the holidays.

    It does not seem improbable, but since this is unconfirmed, please be aware of the fact that this may not be true, as always. However, Camera Tech believes this to be true, for the most part.
