Canon annouces EOS 500D digital SLR

Posted 26/03/2009 at 10:06 PM
Canon have announced a new digital SLR for their range, the EOS 500D. Sitting just above their 450D camera, the main new feature of the 500D is the inclusion of high-definition (HD) movie recording. Main features include:
  • 15.1 mexapixel CMOS Sensor (1.6x)
  • DiG!C 4 Image Processor
  • Full HD Movie Recording
  • Live View (with Face Detection)
  • 3” LCD (high resolution)
  • 100-3200 ISO (H1:6400, H2:12800)
  • EOS Integrated Cleaning System

Since it's launch, the Nikon D90 has stolen the limelight based primarily on the HD movie feature, so we expect the 500D to be a welcome addition to the range for Canon enthusiasts.

The Canon 500D is expected to arrive during May and will be available in the standard kit options:

  • Body only
  • Single IS kit (with 18-55mm image stabilised lens)
  • Twin IS kit (with 18-55mm and 55-250mm image stabilised lenses)
  • Premium kit (with 18-200mm image stabilised lens)
  • Enthusiast kit (with 17-85mm image stabilised lens)

Pricing on all option is currentl TBC. We'll let you know when we get more info.
