Canon fires backSeptember 17, 2008
Pretty interesting features on the newly announced Canon 5D Mark II full-frame update to the 5D.
- 21.1 Megapixel
- Shoots full 1080p HD Video
- ISO to 25,600 with new DIGIC 4 processor
- Still just 3.9 frames/sec
- New RAW options size-wise
- Silent shooting options
There’s also a new Canon G9 successor – the G10. It’s not quite as big a jump from the G9 and the G9 is still a bit different due to a more telephoto lens (6x on the G9 vs. 5x on the G10). I’d expect the G10 to have better low-light ability, although ISO range has not changed (1600 max).
- 14.7 Megapixel
- New wider-angle lens
- DIGIC 4 processor.
I’d like to see them make a G10 with half the resolution but twice (or more) the low-light capabilities — that would be useful.
