  1. Slots in below the 450D. Seems pretty loaded to me for an entry-level model.

    Yes by the look of it. Same size with nikon D40 and even 25 g lighter! But it is not el cheapo camera. In couple months we'll know what is like.

    I think canon is trying to close the hole.

    Cool. I still don't see 599 Euros being that inexpensive... Isn't a 450D something like 799 Euros? I know I'm a cheapskate, but to me it looks like a newer form of an older model. I mean, it better be cheap, or else people will just buy a 400D

    I do LOVE the live view mode, though. 30fps is sweet, and if I can get the money this has already become a good option for me.

    I think you might mean 3fps ;)

    3fps in jpg or 1.5 fps RAW is what I've heard.

    No, I mean for the live view. In other words the live view mode is going to be smooth and not choppy.

    Boy, that'd be a steal if it shot at 30fps, considering a 1d Mk III is only 10fps! :) Sure enough, its all you see on the sidelines of football games (attached is a 600mm f/4 :))

    How far below MSRP do cameras usually retail for? €550 (for body only) is just over $860 (USD), that's more than double the cost of a 350D, and about $300 more than a 400D.

    im guessing that this is going to fase out the 400D completely and come in somewhere inbetween the price of a D40 and 450D so where the 400D is currently sitting

    Just looks like another bottom of the line POS from Canon.

    But seriously, i dont really see whats makes this something cool. It looks cheesy and i hate the canon marketing.

    Cameras are much cheaper on your side of the pond, you cannot simply apply the exchange rate here. I would guess the camera will be much less than 860 in the states.

    [EDIT:]OK, on Canon US it says:
    Suggested Retail Price: $799.99
     
  10. Don't get yourself crazy about the $ - € exchange rate. It's completely out of whack these days, and manufacturers are pricing to the market, not to the curency equivalent. I'm willing to bet this thing will cost $650 later on in the US... they'll do rebates and all that stuff.

    You can still buy a 350D new for $400 so why should anybody want this new camera?

    Well, people will buy it anyway just because it is new, don't worry. If it is a good catch,well, image quality will be the deciding factor here, not features. So let us wait for first proper tests and comparisons. If noise is exceptionally low, it would be a reason for $200-$300 more, but let us just wait and see.
