Canon unveils four cameras

Canon today launched new PowerShot A-Series (site not updated) digital cameras, as well as its EOS Digital Rebel XT digital camera. The company's new PowerShot A710 IS, A640, and A630 compact digital cameras feature a compact form factor that fits snugly in the hand. The 7.1, 10.0 and 8.0 megapixel cameras offer high resolution and are expected to ship this October for $400, $400, and $300, respectively. Canon's new 10.1 megapixel EOS Digital Rebel XT camera is expected to ship in mid-September for under $1,000, and will be offered in both sleek brushed silver patina and "pro" matte black finishes. Users can purchase the device in two kit configurations: with and without Canon's EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens.

    Canon Rebel XTi

    The Canon Digital Rebel XT is Canon's existing, entry level DSLR. The XTi is the new camera.

    What's interesting about this is that it not only has a higher resolution (which is really more important for marketing than actual picture taking) than the 30D, but that it includes features its more expensive cousin doesn't have. Most notably, the anti-dust feature.

    I suspect we'll see a Canon 5D MK II soon, followed by a 40D. The anti-dust feature is something Canon photogs have been asking for, and it's odd that it appeared first on their entry level DSLR, rather than it's pro- or "prosomer" cameras first.
