Canon 40D: Internal information this week

Canon logo

Posts about EOS 40D:

It seems that there would be some internal information spread on 12th/13th February inside Canon to prepare the announcement of the Canon EOS 40D digital SLR camera.

Around there, it is said that the AF will be using the 9+6 sensor of the 5D camera.

Stock-Photo-blogspot is also very precise in the list of rumoured characteristics it describes. This is a kind of rumour consensus list:

  • 10.1 M-pixel
  • Dust removal like the EOS 400D/Rebel XTi
  • 1.6 crop factor
  • Weather-sealed (this seems unsure even if it would make it very competitive against the Pentax K10D -sold at less than 1000$)
  • Less than 1200€ (following the market epxectations)

Wait for the end of an embargo on the 24th of February.

    The 24 date could be moved back. According to talk on FM, there would be a significant announcement on the 22/23 in Asia.

    As it is quite obvious today, the announcement of the 22nd was about the 1D MkIII and not the sequel to the 20D/30D saga.

    We’ll have to wait until September? Who knows?
