yes but back then Nikon really didnt have anything that was all that great to offer..Even though i dont like Nikon the D300/D700 are packed with ALOT of stuff..this new 50D doesnt even come close to features as the year old D300

+1 if this is true, i really hope that someone at canon is getting fired soon. i can see the discussion right now:

engineer : We really need to do something about this ancient AF system...

Marketing: forget the AF system, we need more MP..

Engineer : what about noise?

Marketing: f the noise, we have more MP!!!

Engineer : yeah but what about all the rest?

Marketing: what about it?



Sounds plausible

I compare it to what the competition is doing... and if these specs are true I don't get the impression that Canon is really innovating or trying to compete. Just MHO.

What a crock of shite.

And even if true this does not mean there's no new FF this year.


True, sorry about that comment. I don't want to start any rumors.
I'm still happily shooting with a 1DmkII, and will continue do so for a long time. (That is until a nice 5D replacement is to be had 2nd hand for cheap).

This is the "feature" that strains credibility on the whole thing

So processing 1.5 times the pixels in an indiscernibly different amount of time isnt an improvement?

Quite possibly, but it also mentions that they're using Digic 4 so hopefully they've been able to pull of some magic and reduce the ISO noise even further, preferably without in-camera noise-reduction a la Noise Ninja.

I speak english and spanish, they have much more in common than chinese and english, and google butchers quite a bit of both. It's only useful for word by word literal translations.

It's a rumor site. It's a rumored camera. It's rumored specs. Next thing you know there will be 50 rumor threads, saying it will be out at photokina.

What is a rumor site?

http://www.canon.com.cn/products/camera/eos/50d/spec.html

The purported spec don't list in camera shake reduction.

What I find appealing about specs is that since at least the 30D, the xxD resolution specs have been lock-step with the 1D non "s" bodies... so hopefully this means a 1DIV at around 15MP (and full frame would be even better).

Also has UDMA support, though hopefully that's "Nikon" 30MB/s UDMA and not Canon's relatively weak UDMA speeds in the 1DsIII.

And for the person wishing for more than 9 AF sensors.... looks like it won't be, though they are all supposedly cross type.

http://www.canon.com.cn/ is the link that opens from the canon.com global site when you click on China... therefore the 50D links appear to be legit. One thing to remember, if the camera is to be announced on Friday, it's already Friday in China right now...
