New cameras galore
If you were living under a rock this week, or if you were too busy watching your net worth plummet on Google Finance, you might have missed the new camera announcements.
Canon announced two new DSLRs and a new compact:
- The Canon EOS 40D 10MP APS-C DSLR
- The Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III 21MP (!!) Full Frame DSLR
- The nifty Canon PowerShot G9 12MP compact point & shoot
Nikon followed shortly thereafter, announcing two new DSLRs of their own:
Good stuff. Did I mention that the EOS 1Ds Mark III 21MP?!? Canon finally made a medium format camera.
And welcome to full-frame, Nikon users! Nikon’s entry into the full-frame market should be exciting news for Nikon and Canon fans because the competition will lead to lower-priced full-frame DSLRs in the near future.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, I’m not going to buy any of them. I wouldn’t even if my net worth hadn’t dropped like 50% the last couple weeks. I won’t need more than my 5D for a long, long time. If I were going to buy one, it would probably be the G9.
