Canon leaks 50D details

Canon's Chinese branch has leaked details for the EOS 50D, the latest in the company's sport and high-speed photography camera line, offering user anti-shake technology in the camera hardware, among other features. The new model is based around 15.4 Megapixel DIGIC 4 sensor, but experiences a miniscule drop in framerate (6.3 frames per second, versus a former 6.5). Light sensitivity should also be enhanced, running from ISO 100 to an extremely high ISO 12800, while the 50D's buffer is able to store up to 16 RAW images, or 60 JPEGs.

In addition, the 50D offers dust reduction, automatic brightness processing, autofocus fine tuning, a nine-point autofocus viewfinder and a 3 inch LCD monitor with almost a million pixels on screen. Canon houses the finished product in a magnesium alloy chassis.

A release date isn't included with the leak, though the information is surfacing just weeks before Germany's Photokina expo, which is regularly used as the venue for high-profile camera introductions. [via Photography Bay]

    facts?

    h***! you got any idea about what you are writing? digic 4 (if it would be true) is not the sensor but the image processor. and the two digit canon dslrs are not the "sport and high-speed photography camera line" but the advanced amateur line. and for the display - we're far away from "millions of pixels" it would be great if upcoming cameras would have a vga display - that's 640 x 480 pixels - or for you megapixel counters: 0.3 megapixels.

    DARN! facts, facts, facts... it's your job! not only that you hunt after every lame "insider information" but you have absolutely no idea what you are writing about in the "technical details" - and you'd like to be a electronics related weblog...

    LCD resolution

    Camera makers have taken to counting the LCD resolution the same way they count sensor resolution: Each RGB trio counts as three pixels. So, 640 x 480 x 3 = 921,600 or almost one megapixel.

    It's a shady practice, but it's become the norm. Your other points stand, however.

    Hey, did I say I'd stop reading this site? Old habits die hard.
