Canon fires back

September 17, 2008

New Canon 5D Mark II.  New Canon G10.

More info on the blog at TWIP, and a preview on DPReview.

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.
