450D news

2012 April

16th There is a problem with some cameras (EOS 60D, EOS 450D, EOS 500D, EOS 600D & EOS 1000) and Eye-Fi X2 series cards (incl. Connect X2, Mobile X2, Pro X2). This from Canon:

It is possible that the EOS digital SLR cameras which have had their main PCB replaced during the specific timeframes listed above may not turn on normally when Eye-Fi brand cards are used, or if any brand of SD card is removed from the camera within a certain time after opening the card slot cover. If the camera is not turning on normally when using an Eye-Fi brand card, a temporary workaround is to use SD cards instead of the Eye-Fi card when capturing images. If the camera is not operating normally when the SD card is promptly removed after opening the card slot cover, a temporary workaround is to remove the battery pack, then re-insert the battery pack.

2009 April

23rd Firmware update to V 1.0.5

10th Those of you waiting in the US for an XSi from Amazon, it would seem that they are saying the 27th for availability [EG]

3rd I’ve had plenty of comments from people starting to get initial deliveries of the 450D – one even pointing out that Canon Slovenia has stock :-)

The full XSi or 450D manual is now available as a PDF [or here if that link dies]

12th Some purported high ISO 450D images on a German forum.

9th Some 450D sample images at Canon

8th Most people are still vaguely pointing to some time in April for having the 450D in stock, but I’m told (thanks) that Komplett in the UK claim to have 3 in stock for the 8th of April.

February 26th On Canon sites, it’s still saying ‘March 08’ for arrival, although later in the month is best bet at the moment.

A quick warning, after someone complained about one of the ads appearing on our site (we just provide the space, Google supplies the content, and it varies over time and in different parts of the world)

If something looks too good to be true
…then it most likely is
.

If you are unsure of a company, a look at places like resellerratings.com is good for searching which are complete rip-off merchants. Another good way is putting the company name and ‘scam’ into Google, since this will find forum discussions where people are complaining. Note too that you can always click on the ‘ads by Google’ text and complain to Google if you find an ad particularly offensive.

canon 450D at Focus in Birmingham25th Lots of people took the chance to have a play with the new 450D at the Canon stand at the Focus show in Birmingham.

Although I only had a quick try, the 450D did feel a bit more comfortable in my hands than the 400D (but remember I’m used to using a 1Ds3 which is huge by comparison)

14th Chatting with several dealers in the UK, none of them are expecting to have a 450D until early April. Canon are still officially saying March, but the word is that this has been pushed back (perhaps one or two 450Ds will turn up at the end of March, just so Canon can meet their delivery date ;-)

1st No reduction in image quality… Moving from 10 to 12 has not reduced image quality says Chuck Westfall in this PMA video from ImagingResource.

January 25th Canon UK had some web problems earlier, but the 450D info is now on their site, the 450D info can also be found at their Ireland site.

I’ve also added the Canon Australia PR below, since different Canon areas often emphasise different aspects of a camera ;-)

There is also a Canon Feb 08 full DSLR range guide available as a PDF

24th As expected it’s the 450D and it gets the XSi designation in the US and EOS Kiss Digital x2 in Japan.

Biggest differences are

12MP
Bigger screen
Liveview with both AF modes (contrast-detect and passive)
14-bit processing and RAW
spot metering,
Better AF (9 point with Cross-type F2.8 at centre)
3.5 fps continuous shooting for up to 53 JPEG (6 RAW)
Highlight Tone Priority (from 40D)
Larger viewfinder (still uses mirrors not a prism, but is probably on a par with that from the 30D)
SD/SDHC storage
New higher capacity battery. Lithium-Ion LP-E5 rechargeable battery (7.4 V, 1050 mAh)
ISO in the viewfinder
Slight redesign of shape to improve handling
Redesigned battery grip (BG-E5). The BG-E5 can take two of the new LP-E5 batteries or 6 AA batteries. Number of Shots: Temperature Shooting Conditions, No flash/50% flash use, At 73° F/23° C approx. 600/ approx. 500, At 32° F/0° C approx. 500/ approx.400

It’s interesting to see that liveview AF is now available in either normal AF (mirror drops down) or contrast based.

This suggests that this feature is only a firmware upgrade for other cameras that already have liveview, but then, when was the last time Canon upgraded functionality with a firmware update? ;-)

ISO is to 1600

Note also that you’ll need new SD cards – no more CF …and no video mode.

The normal 450D kit includes a redesigned, image stabilised version of the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.

This should help it compete with the increasing number of other makes of DSLR which offer sensor based anti-shake systems.

Lots of useful upgrades, whether it will hold out against the expected rush of entry level DSLRs this year will make for some interesting comparisons.

Canon eos 450DCanon PR

Amstelveen, The Netherlands, 24 January 2008: Canon today launches its latest D-SLR, the EOS 450D. Featuring a 12.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor, EOS Integrated Cleaning System, 3.0” LCD with Live View mode and a new 9-point AF system, the model presents consumers with an unprecedented level of image quality and versatility at this end of the market.

The EOS 450D employs features already proven in Canon’s professional EOS-1 series cameras, including the DIGIC III image processor and a redesigned menu system that enables features such as direct control of Speedlite flash units from the camera LCD. A choice of 13 custom functions allows the photographer to customise the camera to their shooting style.

“The EOS 450D bears the fruits of more than 20 years of ongoing investment into EOS,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging, Europe. “This camera continues Canon’s policy of taking technologies proven in the professional arena and putting them within reach of a wider market of amateur photographers.”

The EOS 450D features:

12.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor
Canon’s EOS Integrated Cleaning System
3.5 frames per second
3.0” LCD with Live View shooting
9-point wide-area AF system with f/2.8 cross-type centre point
Picture Style image processing parameters
DIGIC III image processor
Digital Photo Professional RAW processing software1
Compact and Lightweight body
Fully compatible with all Canon EF and EF-S lenses and EX-series Speedlites
The EOS quality advantage [sic]

With all key components developed and manufactured in-house, EOS offers photographers a unique quality advantage. The EOS 450D’s specially designed 12.2 Megapixel sensor employs Canon’s high-sensitivity, low-noise CMOS technology to produce richly detailed images with minimal grain. The DIGIC III processor ensures superior image rendering and rapid response times, with an almost instant 0.1 start up. Image data is processed at 14 bits for Delivering a burst rate of 3.5 frames per second, the DIGIC III processor works with the image buffer to handle up to 53 JPEGs (6 in RAW) without interruption.

Built for better photos

The EOS 450D is designed to make photography a fluid experience for photographers of all levels and experience. Housed in a compact body that weighs less than 475 grams, the camera features an improved grip design that provides a natural, ergonomic fit with the user’s hands. A large, bright viewfinder makes image composition clearer and more comfortable. The menu system inherited from professional EOS cameras uses a simplified tab structure that does away with scrolling. It includes a user-defined My Menu tab for instant access to frequently used settings.

Several custom functions are available to optimise the quality of photos captured in a range of situations. Highlight Tone Priority boosts the dynamic range at the highlight end, providing better tonal detail from wedding dresses, cloudy skies and other bright objects. The new Auto Lighting Optimiser corrects brightness and contrast during image processing, while improving skin tones in portraits by ensuring correct exposure for faces. Photographers can also enable additional noise reduction for shots captured at high ISO speeds.

Live View

Canon digital rebel XsiAvailable for the first time on a Canon consumer D-SLR, Live View mode makes it easier to shoot from awkward angles, such as ground-level macro shots or when shooting from a tripod. The image from the Live View mode is displayed as a smooth, 30fps video feed on the 3.0” LCD, which is 50% brighter than the screen of the EOS 400D. A grid line display and live histogram can be selected to help with shot composition and exposure. While focusing, the photographer can zoom in on specific details with up to 10x magnification of the image displayed on the LCD screen. Two types of auto focus are available: Quick AF flips the camera mirror momentarily to engage the AF sensor; Live AF uses the image contrast data to focus – a method familiar to anyone upgrading from a compact digital camera.

For studio environments, remote Live View lets the photographer compose, adjust settings and capture the shot from a PC using the supplied EOS utility software.

Other improvements

The EOS 450D complements its headline features with a host of smaller improvements that enhance the photographic experience. The viewfinder now displays all key exposure information including ISO speed. The addition of spot metering (4% of viewfinder) allows for greater control over exposure in tricky lighting conditions. PictBridge functionality has been expanded so that photographers can correct horizons and add picture effects before printing. A new high capacity battery extends shooting time on a single charge to a maximum of 500 shots.

Software

The EOS 450D is supplied with a comprehensive software suite that provides everything the photograph needs to manage and process images. This includes Digital Photo Professional (DPP), a powerful RAW converter that provides complete RAW image processing control. DPP also integrates with camera features such as Dust Delete Data and Picture Styles. The supplied Picture Style Editor software can be used to create custom Picture Styles for fine control over colour display. The camera also comes with EOS Utility, Image/Zoom Browser and Photostitch.

US Press release

450D /Xsi with BG-E5 gripLAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., January 23, 2008 – Canon U.S.A., Inc.’s EOS Rebel series of digital single lens reflex cameras – the cameras that defined and refined what it means to be an “entry level” digital SLR – have now redefined the gateway prowess and “pro-ness” of the DSLR category with the introduction of the line’s new leader, the 12.2-megapixel EOS Rebel XSi camera. Incorporating a number of high-end functions and technology found in Canon’s professional SLR models, the EOS Rebel XSi camera boasts an improved autofocus sensor, enhanced 14-bit A/D conversion, an advanced Live View function, and the proprietary DIGIC III image processor. When paired with any of the more than 60 compatible Canon EF and EF-S lenses, including optically image stabilized EF-S lenses like the EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS – now included in the EOS Rebel XSi kit – or the new EF-S55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS, the EOS Rebel XSi DSLR delivers images that will delight and inspire family and friends at an entry level price tag.

“This new EOS Rebel XSi camera is the answer for those who have been waiting to make the leap from digital point-and-shoot to digital SLR or from an older SLR to the latest generation of advanced technology, while still including the creative controls their old camera afforded them,” states Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A.

Luxury Feel and Function
At first glance, one notices the Rebel XSi’s large, 3-inch LCD monitor, enhanced from the 2.5-inch screen on the Digital Rebel XTi model. The larger 230,000 pixel screen makes it easier for users to review images and scroll through the Rebel XSi camera’s menus. The larger-sized display provides the ability to use a larger font size for menu text, making it easier than ever to read settings and options. The new screen also features a broadened Colour gamut, seven brightness settings for easy viewing under a variety of shooting conditions and a wide viewing perspective in all directions.

The EOS Rebel XSi camera features a substantial yet streamlined profile, with curved edges, contoured surfaces, conveniently placed controls and comfortably constructed rubber grip and thumb rest that all contribute to fatigue-reducing hand fit. The camera body is constructed of a rugged yet lightweight combination of stainless steel and polycarbonate embedded with glass fiber. The chassis exterior is enrobed in a durable ABS and Polycarbonate resin and offered in a choice of silver or black finishes.

Improved Image Quality
At the heart of the new EOS Rebel XSi is its newly designed 12.2 megapixel APS-C size Canon CMOS sensor. This new sensor employs large microlenses over each pixel to reduce noise and enhance sensitivity up to ISO 1600, which is ideal for high-quality images in low light. The APS-C size sensor retains a 1.6x focal length conversion factor compared to full-frame digital image sensors or 35mm film format cameras.

Another image quality enhancement is the upgrade of the Analog-to-Digital (A/D) conversion process to a 14-bit A/D processor. The inclusion of the 14-bit A/D process means the Rebel XSi camera records up to 16,384 colours per channel and allows the camera to produce images with finer and more accurate gradations of tones and colours. This is ideal for shooting outdoors where subtle hue changes in sky, water or foliage can really add to an image.

The Canon EOS Rebel XSi DSLR also incorporates the optional Highlight Tone Priority and High-ISO Noise Reduction functions first introduced in 2007 with the EOS-1D Mark III Professional Digital SLR and now available for the first time in an entry level Canon digital SLR camera. Additionally, the new camera is equipped with Canon’s Auto Lighting Optimizer technology, which corrects image brightness and contrast automatically. Introduced last year in the EOS 40D camera, this valuable optional feature now works in all exposure modes and utilizes Face Detection technology to prevent underexposure with backlit faces.

450D / Xsi rear screenDIGIC III Image Processor
If the 12.2-megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor is the heart of the camera, then Canon’s DIGIC III processor is the brain. The latest generation of Canon’s proprietary image processing engine, DIGIC III technology ensures that the fine details and natural colours of the images are optimally recorded. The DIGIC III processor also manages the camera’s efficient energy consumption and high-speed signal processing performance. The EOS Rebel XSi is the first model in the Rebel series to incorporate DIGIC III.

Enhanced Live View
Introduced in 2007 on the EOS-1D Mark III DSLR, this function makes its debut in an entry level Canon DSLR with the EOS Rebel XSi camera. Live View allows users to frame shots through the LCD screen rather than the viewfinder. Going beyond the manual focus and phase-detection AF capabilities of earlier EOS models with Live View, the EOS Rebel XSi camera adds a new “Live Mode” contrast-detection AF function that allows the camera to focus automatically during Live View without lowering the reflex mirror.

Improved Autofocus and Framing Rate
The EOS Rebel XSi Digital SLR utilizes a precise nine-point Autofocus (AF) system featuring a newly developed AF sensor that improves the camera’s subject detection capabilities compared to earlier models. The new Rebel XSi DSLR provides a cross-type AF measurement at the centre that’s effective with all EF and EF-S lenses, while providing enhanced precision with lenses having maximum apertures of f/2.8 or faster. The cross-type AF measurement reads a wider variety of subject matter than conventional single-axis AF sensors and thus increases the new camera’s ability to autofocus quickly and accurately. The EOS Rebel XSi is also the fastest firing Rebel model to date, capable of continuously capturing 3.5 frames per second for bursts of up to 45 images in large/fine JPEG mode and 6 frames in RAW mode. The faster frame rates and finer focusing capabilities of the Rebel XSi together with its impressive image burst rate will help photo enthusiasts preserve family milestones or capture split second sports action at just the right moment.

EOS Integrated Cleaning System
The new Rebel XSi DSLR utilizes Canon’s EOS Integrated Cleaning system, first introduced on the EOS Rebel XTi camera. The camera’s Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit shakes dust particles off of the low-pass filter in front of the sensor. The dust is then trapped by an adhesive along the base, preventing it from causing further nuisance. Cleaning is engaged each time the camera is powered up or shut down or manually through the “clean now” function.

The second part of the cleaning system involves post processing with a compatible personal computer and the supplied Digital Photo Professional software. Here the camera maps any spots that may remain on the sensor, saving it as Dust Delete Data and subsequently subtracting dust spots from the final image during post processing. A third option includes a manual sensor cleaning function which raises the mirror and allows users to clean dust that may have stuck to the low-pass filter.

Back to the Basics
In keeping with its EOS system heritage, the new Canon EOS Rebel XSi camera is equipped with a host of useful creative controls, including shutter speeds ranging from 1/4000 sec. to 30 sec. plus Bulb, a choice of four metering patterns including 4% spot metering (another first for the Rebel series), a wide range of exposure modes from fully automatic to fully manual, depth of field preview, mirror lock and much more. The new camera is fully compatible with all Canon EF and EF-S lenses, as well as EX-series Speedlites, an optional Battery Grip, and remote control and viewfinder accessories.

A departure from previous EOS Digital Rebel models, which accommodated CF type memory cards, the new EOS Rebel XSi camera utilizes SD and SDHC memory cards including those with capacities higher than 2GB, making it the perfect upgrade for users already equipped with SD cards from point-and-shoot model cameras. Additionally, the EOS Rebel XSi camera utilizes Canon’s new high-capacity LP-E5 lithium ion battery pack, which provides 50% more exposures per charge than earlier models with virtually no increase in size or weight.

In the Box
Expected to ship in April 2008 the Canon Rebel XSi camera is available in body-only configuration which includes a rechargeable battery pack and charger, USB and video cables, a neckstrap, an EOS Solutions Disk CD, and a 1-year Canon U.S.A., Inc. limited warranty. The new camera will also be available in a lens kit version which includes everything in the body-only kit plus the EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens. The two versions carry estimated retail prices of $799.99 and $899.99, respectively.

EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Image Stabilizer Lens
First introduced in August of 2007, the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens is Canon’s answer to consumer demand for a high-quality yet affordable optically image stabilized lens and is included as the standard lens in the Rebel XSi kit configuration. The lens features the wide-angle to mid-range zoom flexibility of its non-IS predecessor with the significant advantage of Canon’s true optical, lens-shift image stabilization system that yields up to a full four stops of image-shake correction. The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-55.6 IS zoom lens sells separately for $199.99*, but when customers purchase the lens kit version of the Rebel XSi the difference in price is only $100* from the price of the body-only kit. Canon is offering the lens kit at this discount so that more customers can enjoy the benefit of a lens based image stabilizer system.

The higher performance provided by Canon’s lens shift IS system (compared with the in-camera body sensor shift type offered in some competitive SLRs) includes the ability to optimize the lens performance for specific shooting situations such as low light, long-zoom or movement while shooting (or virtually any combination of the three). What’s more, the photographer can see the optical image stabilization effect in the viewfinder. As the image already appears steady in the viewfinder or on the screen through the Rebel XSi Live View function, better framing and composition is possible allowing the photographer to concentrate on the best shot more comfortably.

EF-S55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS Lens
Like the standard kit lens, the optional EF-S55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS offers users of Canon EOS Digital SLRs with APS-C type CMOS sensors an affordable, lightweight, high-performance lens with tremendous range and flexibility. Given the 1.6x conversion factor inherent in the APS-C sized sensor, the high zoom ratio of this EF-S 55-250mm lens actually achieves the equivalent focal length of 88-400mm (in 35mm format).

Canon’s true optical, lens shift image stabilizer offers users an equivalent shutter speed that is approximately 4 settings faster, making hand-held lower light or long zoom photos easier to capture without blurring. What’s more, the lens can automatically distinguish between normal shooting and panning shots and select the optimum Image Stabilizer mode for each.

In stores now, both the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and the EF-S55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS zoom lenses are manufactured by Canon specifically for the EOS Rebel XSi , EOS 40D and every other EOS SLR that takes EF-S lenses including earlier Digital Rebel cameras and the EOS 20D, EOS 20Da, and EOS 30D models. Though standard in the EOS Rebel XSi kit, the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens is also available as a stand alone purchase and carries an estimated retail price of $199.99. The optional EF-S55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens is available at an estimated retail price of $299.99.


Canon Australia 450D PR

Sydney, 24th January 2008 – Let your creative juices flow with Canon Australia’s new EOS 450D digital SLR camera. Positioned between the highly acclaimed EOS 400D and 40D, the new EOS 450D successfully establishes its position as the camera of choice for first time digital SLR camera buyers who are seeking more creative control than previously offered in entry-level digital SLRs.

“The EOS 450D is a high-quality, feature-packed digital SLR and is very easy to use”, said Chris Macleod, Product Manager, digital SLR, Canon Australia. “It’s also lightweight and compact, making it easy for people to enjoy creative photography.”

Dazzling image quality and flexibility
Exceptional clarity, razor-sharp images and rich colours are all the hallmarks of a Canon-developed 12.2-megapixel CMOS sensor. Combined with the imaging performance and super-fast speed of the DiG!C III image processor, the EOS 450D is the perfect camera for creative photography fun.

Canon’s EOS 450D also brings photographers a host of functions for users looking to expand their scope of photography. The addition of Live View Mode with Auto Focus capabilities allows photographers to preview images in real time for greater flexibility and creative composition.

Creativity made simple
The EOS 450D is perfect for first time DSLR users. With a large 3.0-inch LCD monitor and a Mode Dial for selecting automatic modes such as Sports, Portrait or Landscape, the camera optimises the settings for particular situations and conditions, offering built-in expertise to assist the photographer in capturing their best shot. The EOS 450D can also be set to Full Manual mode, enabling even greater creative control.

Dust-free images every time
Up until now, dust has presented a challenge to capturing the perfect image. The EOS Integrated Cleaning System ensures total protection from the appearance of dust in images when shooting in adverse conditions.

Intuitive design and features
Smaller and lighter than the EOS 400D, the EOS 450D is the ideal size and weight to ensure it can be taken anywhere. A faster start up time of 0.1 seconds also ensures users won’t miss a moment when an unexpected photo opportunity arises.

Experimenting and exploring
The EOS 450D is the ideal companion for users looking to experiment with photography, pushing their creative boundaries to the next level and assisting them to produce images that are uniquely their own. Anything is possible with the EOS 450D which is set to inspire and encourage imaginative photography.

Key features:
12.2-megapixel CMOS Sensor (APS-C)
DiG!C III Image Processor with 14 bit colour (Canon Original)
3.5 frames per second with continuous shooting up to 53 shots in a single burst when shooting in JPEG
9-point Auto Focus
EOS Integrated Cleaning System
Live View Mode with Auto Focus capabilities

Pricing and Availability
The Canon EOS 450D (available April RRP $TBC) will be available through Canon dealers nationally. Stay tuned for more exciting news to come surrounding the arrival of this product in April. For more information customers can contact Canon on 1800 021 167, or visit the website at Canon.com.au


Below are the various internet rumours that led up to the 450D

23rd January 2008 … on DPR the ‘oracle’ reiterates

“no 5d as i said….. but new rebel is on its way…..”

22nd 2 new entry level cameras from Canon this year? See the follow up to the other day’s POTN link

21st In a ‘no 5D followup at PMA’ thread at DPR there are several other people’s predictions including the interesting…

on Jan 24 they will announce 2 new cameras for PMA: the 7D and the 450D.
The 7D will be the 16Mp successor of the 5D. Making room for a 3D introduction later this year.
The 7D will be the big brother to the 40D. With FF and spectacular high iso performance.
I suspect the 450D to be surprisingly interesting due to a larger viewfinder and an improved AF system with face-detection.

20th In a flash of foresight, someone comes up with a 6MP full frame 450D [potn] :-) :-)

Apart from the marketing desire to keep the ‘lower’ end of the market price competitive, the task of selling 6MP in a consumer market is not a task I’d want, no matter how good those pixels were… ;-)

As to actual ‘solid’ rumours, I’ve yet not seen anything relating to the predicted Canon announcements on Wednesday.

In a personal note, my partner Karen has just launched her Bridal Jewellery web site – as such she’s now used my 1Ds3 for more small product photography than i have! In particular the colours in the images for the bead colour page were noticeably better and easier to work on than with my old 1Ds. Most were taken with a TS-E 90 lens with an extension tube and few degrees of tilt. Whilst small web images really don’t show much difference, i’m told that ‘live-view’ made all the difference for getting really sharp images …note that this is the first ‘launch’ of the site, so some pictures are temporary until she gets round to photographing them in more detail ( i.e. when the studio is ‘free’ ;-)

15th Some flash accessories on Amazon mention the 450D [#1#2]

However, note that this is not an Amazon product – I’m never quite sure what to make of stuff like this on Amazon… I keep feeling it’s like eBay with a slightly more reputable name ;-)

12th From POTN

“It will be the Rebel XTs. Same sensor, 3″ screen, live-view, dust remover (already had in XTi), increased noise and DR performance (gaining of 2 stops more or so claims Canon), support for UDMA cards, Digic3, Canon wireless master built in, improved AF performance and 4 new cross sensors around the centre AF point. Lastly from what I hear it should be priced at $599.”

Not to be mistaken for the Rebel XTS, which is the silver version of the 350D… ;-)

BTW I always wondered why Canon marketing didn’t use the XXXD model number designation in the US?

11th Nothing new, not even the fake books and pictures from before the 400D launch.

EOS 450DAnyone remember the big X and countdown on the Czech Canon site before the 400D launch? The rumours then tended to go for the 370D and Xti names. I’ve only seen a few people suggest 500D rather than 450D [long DPR 450 thread]

I’ve also seen a few new specific ‘rumours’ blogs starting to appear ;-) If you see something new, then look for references to sources. No references makes it difficult to decide whether it is genuinely new info or just an existing rumour restated to give the blog a few forum post links :-)

2nd Is it just a 450D for PMA? looking at what’s in various Canon catalogues, it’s suggested (POTN) that the 5D2 (or say 3D and 7D) being kept until Photokina in the Autumn, with ‘just’ a 450D for PMA

“Also, the EOS 350D (Rebel XT) has been dropped from the 4th-quarter 2007 catalog line-up of EOS models in my country/region while the EOS 5D remains. In the 4th-quarter 2006 catalog, only the EOS-1D Mark II N was missing from the line-up while EOS 30D remained. 1st-quarter 2008 catalog will be issued at end of January”

2007 December 27th Obviously just down for cleaning, but Canon UK doesn’t have a working DSLR page at the moment ;-)

And while looking for other authoritative sources of Canon advance product info, I’m told that some flash units on eBay are listing the 450 in their compatibility list :-)

26th In another outbreak of “We’ve seen a bar code, so it must be true” news, a Chinese site is mentioning both the 70D and 320D.
— Don’t forget -anyone- can make themselves up a UPC code on that database ;-)

The page (it translates well at translate.google.com) manages to work in some (wrong) info from the Swedish Canon interview (5D2 page) suggesting that the cameras will be part of an announcement on the 24th Jan (there is no actual mention of camera announcements in the original interview – the 24th date could just as well be a stack of copiers and printers ;-)

That said, given that PMA is shortly afterwards, many -are- expecting a 5DMk2 and 450D.

14th Is it the 450D on the 24th of January? In an interview (in Swedish), Robert Westin of Canon Sweden says ‘… Canon has had a mediocre year because of a change in their business systems’ and reveals that the next new Canon product will be announced on January 24. 2008, a week before PMA. It adds that Canon will “release more photography-related products during 2008 than was released during 2007”

9th With XTi body only prices (US) of ~$510 there have been further downward shifts in pricing (Amazon $590 with kit lens).

I’ve not seen any real info about features but there is a very long rambling thread about the benefits or not of a 450D ‘Movie mode’ on DPR. Note that in the EU, camera manufacturers might wary of introducing ‘proper’ movie facilities since the rates of duty payable rise, once movie ‘features’ go past a certain level of spec. [AP]

1st 400D prices seem to be dropping, which is often a sign of a ‘clearout’. 5D prices have been coming down quite some time now, so the expectation still seems mostly for a new 5D and 400D announced at or just before PMA.

PMA (exhibitor list) runs from Jan 31st to Feb 2nd.

From POTN “Amazon has it for $542! Clearing out inventory for sure. Adorama dropped their price to $549 and B&H dropped it from $579 to $559.”

BTW We finally got the new Canon 1Ds Mk3, and there’s a 1Ds3 notes page with sample images and some of Keiths thoughts on moving from a 1Ds to a 1Ds Mk3

November 5th It’s been pretty quiet on 450D rumours for a while now but interest seems on the rise with many more speculation threads (Is it the XTx? ;-), although at the moment the most solid info I’ve had is the stuff below which came from a number of sources after a big Canon marketing get together in Japan

September 17th From some recent correspondance (see rumours index for all today’s updates) we are led to believe that:

The 450D is due in early January 2008 for PMA.

The 400D has been the DSLR mainstay for Canon for the last 12 months, dominating the market and the new model is expected to continue this.

Canon is adding a range of ‘gee whizz’ features to maintain this.

Targeted features include:

Ease of use software changes with things like the facial recognition from the consumer P&S targeted for both exposure and focus management.

The software final feature list will depend on what they get working well in the DSLR environment.

Live View
Movie Mode – (just what you’ve always wanted :-)
DIGIC III and 14 bit processing
ISO 3200
Larger LCD screen (there’s one design where the quite wide black boarder on the current LCD screen is gone and some buttons are slightly moved
Still 10.1 MP

A 12MP version is engineered –however the current roadmap has that announced that in August 2009 after the 50D in February 2009. However Canon could do a 12MP 450D 12mp if they felt it was needed

The Nikon D40x is seen as new and not likely to go to 12mp for a while. However the Nikon D80 is expected to be upgraded next year with a D80x or equivalent taking it to 12mp, live view etc.

The 350D is still seen very much as the entry model and with the growth in the DSLR market a whole new entry level camera may arrive, to pitch against the D40. Major design change areas being considered include getting rid of the pentaprism/mirror assembly all together (whether EVF or not wasn’t mentioned)

August 20th Canon announce a 40D and 1Ds MkIII, along with two new EF-S lenses

This from our info received a few days ago

“IS Technology – This is being introduced in some of their consumer grade lenses. The technology has matured to the point that it can be added at only a small price premium. It gives product differentiation – a reaction to Sony and keeps them ahead of Nikon. ”

The design of the IS in the two new lenses is not the same as in existing IS lenses, whilst details are missing, these two pictures compare the new IS and older design. Canon says that the new version is ‘as good as’ the old.

New IS system

The new systems is simpler, so expect IS lenses as standard for the 450D

Existing IS system

18th The 450D (or whatever it gets called) is slated for early next year. We received a whole load of Canon info that suggests: March 2008. 14 bit, Digic III, highlight preservation and IS lens as standard.

More details on our 1Ds3 page

8th At last a 450D rumour, but it’s on DPR and is actually more about the 40D expected later this month.

Expect a 40D, 1Ds3 and 5D2 before the 450D :-)

June 21st 400D rebate has been extended (Canon info) until the end of August.

7th The suggested 18 month consumer update cycle puts the 450D release at PMA in 2008 (Feb). If a 40D does get announced with a bigger sensor size this summer, expect the larger sensor to make it into the 450D in the Spring. One thing that could affect the timing is a 5Dmk2 release.

I’ve had a good trawl round the usual places and it all seems pretty quiet on the rumour front at the moment…

May 10th Canon Australia are offering a cashback offer throughout July 07 for the 400D and 30D of $100 and $200 respectively
Note that on the page it says it is only for purchases up to the end of June. – surely not clearing 400D stocks as well as the 30D (which may well get updated this summer)

Check out our 40D page for current Euro rebate offers.
