Okay Canon, you have me curious



They announced a new PROFESSIONAL body today.

I'll wait until it's been out six months and see what the lucky first ones have to say about it.

But the sucker's specs make it look like it can do everything including bake and slice bread. It can shoot video and has a microphone jack for the same. I make the jump to a daily newspaper, I'll have to be able to shoot video anyway. Might as well be able to do it with one camera instead of being hampered with two different types of camera, like the poor guys at the Daily Herald in Wausau.

And it is set to cost, body only, at under $3,000!

Might have to start saving my pennies now!

Not just any videos.

HD Video!

But right now I'm leaning toward scooping up a new Mark I if the prices tumble. While some of the features on the Mark II are nice, there are several I'll never use.

And at 21.1 megapixels, I would have to invest in 16 GB memory cards instead of another 8 GB.
