This hit the wires yesterday and I thought my fellow Canon shooters might be interested. Apparently Canon China has on their website has the specs for a new camera, the 50D. It reads pretty nice. Just some of the specs on it are as follows:

  • 15.1 megapixel CMOS sensor
  • DIGIC 4
  • 1.6x crop
  • Dust Reduction
  • Auto Brightness Processing
  • 95% viewfinder .97 magnification
  • 9 point af (All Cross Type)
  • 35 meter area equipped with high-precision sensors
  • AF Fine Tuning
  • ISO 100-12800
  • 6.3 fps (high speed) 3fps (low speed)
  • Buffer: 16 RAW – 60 JPG – 10 RAW+JPG
  • 920,000 points VGA 3.0-inch LCD monitor
  • 100,000 cycle shutter
  • Rugged magnesium alloy body

This looks like a pretty nice camera. I’ll keep you updated.


PhotographyBay has some photos off of the Canon China’s webiste of the new 50D and it also has an image taken with the camera. Take a look here
