Canon officially announces EOS 50D


Canon today officially announced the EOS 50D, a new DSLR camera that looks to bring professional features to the hands of consumers.

Now, that’s not to say that it’s an inexpensive camera–it is still a DSLR, after all, but relatively speaking the price of $1,399 for the camera body only or $1,599 with a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM zoom lens.

Features of the 50D will include:

  • 15.1 megapixel sensor
  • DIGIC 4 image processor
  • ISO range of 100 – 12800
  • 3-inch LCD with 920,000 dot/VGA resolution
  • 9 cross-type AF sensors
  • Face detection able to find up to 35 faces in a shot
  • Able to shoot up t 6.3 fps for bursts of up to 90 Large/Fine JPEGs or 16 RAW images
  • Auto Lighting Optimizer to analyze the brightness of subjects and automatically adjust dark images to help them appear brighter
  • High-performance viewfinder with 0.95x magnification
  • Creative Full Auto setting to allow the user to make adjustments while still in automatic mode
  • Live View mode
  • Two small RAW formats, sRAW1 and sRAW2
  • Improved Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit and new fluorine coating on the low-pass filter for better dust resistance
  • HDMI output

Look for it to hit in October.
