PMA round up: Canon

With PMA underway, many of the camera companies are announcing their new line up.
There's really no point in mentioning all of them here as they can be found in most websites, namely www.dpreview.com.
So i'd just like to mention the Canons i find interesting, such as the Canon dSLR 30D which will replace the 20D. It doesn't improve much in function, but has minor upgrades in spot metering, continuous shooting speeds, larger LCD and added "picture styles" otherwise there are cosmetic changes but the 30D will take any 20D accessories as well. the good news? it's going to be cheaper, i'm not sure if that is still affordable for me, but that's good news for some.

Second thing from Canon that raised some eyebrows would be the EF-S 17-55mm lens. the original Kit lens was also 17-55 but did not have image stabilizer and has a F2.8 max aperture through out the zoom, making it faster than the other EF-S lenses. i have been using the kit lens for a while and it's not as good as i hoped. there are frequently over exposed shots with a lot of purple fringing as well as out of focus images. i think an upgrade is wise and i regret spending that extra bit to buy the kit... there are currently 4 EF-S lenses out for the 20D and 350D. check those out.

The Canon Powershot was also upgraded. the new S3 IS has a 12x optical zoom, 6MP sensor, 2 inch LCD and all in a compact SLR-like form factor. honestly, i'd say one of these are good enough for most purposes. i have been using the dSLR and as mentioned before, not getting the quality i'd like. my older Sony V1 did great and produced some amazing shots. i'm sure semi pro cameras like the Canon S3 is even better. the difference lies in not being able to change your lenses, but honestly, how often would you do that unless you're pretty serious about photography. and as you accumulate lenses, the price just get higher and higher. the Sony R1 has one of the most amazing lenses i've seen and if i want one of that quality on my 350D, i'd have to spend a fortune. so this Powershot is looking mighty good especially since it can also record video/audio which allow 60fps QVGA quality. not bad, not bad. with so many new options to choose from... it's great to be a consumer these days... just got to bring in the dough.

S3Is 586X225
PS: there are plenty point and shooters from Canon out as well, but i find the quality of my SD50 so poor that i won't even bother mentioning Canon's compact cameras. yeah, they are compact, but that's it... they take crappy photos, purple fringing, over exposed, underexposed, very very grainy, terrible photos in dim light... it's a disappointment.
