Canon EOS 5D rumours circulate

Share

Here’s something that should grab the
attention of serious digital photographers and anyone who is just wowed by the awesome
power of digital SLRs. For the last few days rumours have been spreading about what
might be unveiled in a Canon press conference due on August 23rd and
a leaked Spanish PDF has given reason to believe that we might soon be offered
the EOS 5D. This will be the latest in a long line of unnaturally powerful
DSLRs and is allegedly capable of a massive 12.8 megapixels! It should also
have a 2.5″, 230k colour LCD and USB 2.0 interface. There’s also a nine point
autofocus and continuous shooting mode adjustable from 3 to 60 frames per
second. Shutter speeds can be varied from 30 to 1/8,000 seconds. Ok, so this
could still turn out to be fake, but at least we don’t need to wait too long to
find out.
