    Some guy did a translation from the Canon china website, heres what he found out, im excited, are you?

    The Canon China website seems to have a page describing an EOS 50D camera. The URL of the page is http://www.canon.com.cn/products/camera/eos/50d/index.html. Since this is an official Canon website, the information about the Canon EOS 50D seems to be real.
    My translation (via online resources - I don't speak Chinese!) of the EOS 50D page seems to suggest the following:

    • The name is the Canon EOS 50D
    • A 15.1 MP CMOS sensor
    • A Canon Digic 4 processor (the translation says "digital video" processor, but I'm not sure I can trust the translation 100% and even if I can I don't know that calling it a "video" processor means anything)
    • Anti-shake feature built into the camera (hard to believe, but great if true). The translation I have is "Anti-Shake feature built-in camera, due to lower Shoudou the fuzzy images, taken more fun!". I'm not sure what "Shoudou" is! I suspect they are probably talking about an IS system, with the IS in the lens. I really do find it hard to believe that Canon would offer body based IS at this stage of the game.
    • Additional measures to eliminate dust on the sensor.
    • 6.3 fps (3fps option)
    • 35 metering zones with evaluative, spot, center weighted and partial metering.
    • 9 cross type AF zones
    • 920,000 pixel VGA LCD monitor
    • Basic ISO range from 100-3200, with 6400 and 12800 available via a custom function.
    • Live View
    • Magnesium alloy body
    • Shutter good for "10 million" cycles (I'm 100% sure this is a mistranslation, probably 100,000. The position of decimal points does get lost in translation).
    That's about all for now. Stay tuned to this page and I'll update it if and when more information comes in. No word on price or availability of course. Since it seems to be aimed at the Nikon D300 as competition, my guess would be a price in the region of $1300 - $1500 (the D300 currently sells for around $1600). Availablity probably in the early fall (September/October) would be my guess.
    UPDATE: Though the machine translation seems to be saying that IS is in the camera, I'm informed that a human translation says the stabilization is, in fact, in the lens.

    Hmmm! Canon are usually quite secretive about new product releases. I would be surprised if they released such information only on their chinese website. To me, that spells rumours or joke.

    Well since the link does not show any page related to a new Canon camera ...

    I am very sceptical to say the least ;)

    why would they downgrade from the 6.5 fps from the 40d to 6.3? not much of a difference in practice im sure, but i dont see why you would?

    They had the page up, but took it down pretty quickly, leading some people to believe it was a purposeful leak. All the same, its coming and I'm sure were going ot hear what exactly is in it at Photokina.

    If true, you can bet my 30D will be for sale soon. But I will remain skeptical until told otherwise. :)

    Good thing you put that up. I bought my 30D and 4 months later the 40D came out. I'm sure I would have bought a 40D 4 months before the 50D showed up :)
     
  11. I've heard the 60D is really going to smoke the 50D, it's going to be way awesomely better. With features!

    Anyway, if you will be able to make it to the Photokina, send me a text on my mobile.

    I will be away to Kiruna and beyond for the next 3-4 weeks. But might have mobile coverage once in a week or so.
