26th A bit more info we just received:
Next week is the launch of a new ‘semi-pro’ crop camera.
xD Design aims were:
- Speed of readout from sensor – FPS, potentially fastest FPS in current DSLR market.
- Dual DiGIC Processor and Dual Card
- HD Video
- Flip screen [sic.]
- Low noise, not more MP
- 5D2 style weather sealing (no 1 series type yet)
- Pro level AF – a preview of the new AF technology in next year’s 1D Mk4
- Significantly improved liveview AF
- Targeted at sports, bird and wildlife photographers
- Intended to be both taken seriously by sports and wildlife photographers and as ‘Aspirational model’ for semi-pros
- Look for a series of sports and wildlife photographers / testers who have tried it. Expect numerous testimonials for the camera.
- Providing a ‘step up’ for current xxD photographers
