    Specs :: LINK


    Currently using the Fujufilm S5600 and want to upgrade.

    Any suggestions that are under $10,000. (I've bought a 10 grand camera before [not from my pocket])


    What do you think? :dunno:

    buy a rebel xti, put the money you save towards a good lens, tripod and learning how photography works. Possibly even a flash depending on what you shoot.

    some were, some weren't. the manufacturers usually have rolling announcements right up through the first day of the show. everyone knows canon has more because they have a microsite online now for their booth that has reference to "birth of a new brand" which is as yet unannounced. and nikon hasn't made any of their pk announcements yet.

    sorry, I thought we were talking DSLRs. :dunno:

    yeah, they announced some p&s, but even with that there is probably more. the highend of their p&s line is....uhm...nonexistant

    lol most of us don't care much about the p&s

    from what I've gathered about the canon dslrs:
    "Get ready for EOS 7D = stripped down smaller 5D $2100
    40D new AF, 10.4MP digic III,
    5D II new AF, 16.2MP, faster

    All coming in Spring: 2007 is the year of the Canon.
    Whayne,

    Did you separate source this or were you requoting from my DPReview link reported by Dave Mart a few pages back in this thread (here http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/436826/195)?

    The reason I ask is that this info is very consistent with my source (who visited an old school friend who was a EOS marketing / product development 'insider' in Canon Japan). He (on a mission from me to find out) seemed very confident, though (being back in early July) the dates were just all EOS cameras replaced 'by February / March 2007'. If your source is different and saying (basically) the same this helps (me at least) get more confident in the rumour. (As confident as you can be anyway!)

    In which case I can seriously worry about whether to buy the 40D or 7D (and go full frame)... The fun of it!"

    In order of probability, the rumors for Photokina are:

    1. No more new bodies
    2. Preview showing of a new 1D(?) that will ship in the spring (possible 1Dx, 1DsMIII, 1DsMIIn. May replace one or both current Marks)
    3. Minor spec bump to the 30D (35D, 40D, 50D, not likely to be called 50D because of possible confusion with 5D, may not be called 40D due to the 400D) to keep up with the XTi
    4. Lower end FF body below 5D (think an FF Rebel XTi at ~$2200 msrp, feature limited, who knows what this thing will be called)
    5. Preview of the 5D replacement that will ship in the winter
    6. 5D replacement (7D? althought it's not likely to be called a 7D because of the old Minolta 7D, 6D may be more likely)
    7. All new type of body (EVF cam like the new Leica/Panasonic)
    8. Complete overhaul of the 30D replacement (3D?)
    9. No more new bodies ;)

    Of course there is absolutely no reliable source info for any of this one way or another, so no one knows jack shit about what will happen on Tuesday. You can see the same rumors and guesses on all of the forums. DPR, FM, POTN, and Northlight all post the same crap. The 5D rumor came from some guy on DPR that talked to a canon reseller in Austrailia...yeah very reliable.

    they would be stupid to bring out another aps-c sensor body. xti & 30d is enough new blood for now.. I would be looking more towards 5dmII, and an announcement regarding new 1 series.

    5d2 might be what you are looking for but it's one of the less likely scenarios. And there have been several leaks on a possible 30D replacement and inventory is apprently constrained on the 30D.

    A preview of a 1DIII/1Dx with a release of a 10MP 30D replacement is one of the more likely scenarios. Theory is that the 30D was just filler until the 10MP sensor was ready and both the 20D and 30D will disappear.

    No one has ever said it would be ANOTHER aps-c body.
     
  20. well I wish I could find out soem real news so I can find out in enough time to dump off my 30d quick before the price drops more drastically than it already has. I think I paid like 1350 for it when it came out, and it up to $1163 new now at some places.. :wtc: Used I can probably unload it for $1100 if I'm lucky. :dunno:

    it'll be hard to dump it and make it worth it. everyone is so picky and heres news of new cams so fast. Best bet is to sell to a friend or someone you know.

    Lets see, bought a d30 for $3k, sold for $375, bought a 10d for 1225 and sold for 775, bought a 1d2 for 3400, could sell for ~2400. :greddy:

    bodies will always go down, and in a hurry. Its just life. Glass is where its at. I could sell all my lenses for more than I piad :bowdown:

    The cool thing is the D60's and 10d's have seem to have held steady at the bottom prices. The D30and D60 have been 400 for years on ebay and the 10D has been holding steady at around 500 for a while. A person can get them used and not lose much when they sell it.

    It tells you a lot about the quality of the D30/D60/10D compared to the rebel xt which is almost the same price on ebay as the D's.
