Wave goodbye to the Canon EOS M: there's a new kid on the block. It's called the M3, and it's a gorgeous little thing.

We heard Nokia was planning on releasing a true, full-on PureView Windows Phone that would have a sensor as ridiculous as Nokia's 41-megapixel 808. Only this time it would run Windows Phone. Could this be it?
Details of the EOS 5D Mark III's specifications were leaked prior to its official release today, and they ended up being pretty much on the mark; it's a 22MP serious DSLR with an equally serious price point.
XXIT is the story of a time-travelling replicant who travels into the past to save her original human form, her "donor." The very foxy Nicollette Sheridan, from such titles as Desperate Housewives and Beverly Hills Ninja, stars.
It saddens me to realise that so many of our readers never courted a gal with a mixtape. (And no, "playlists" are just not the same.)
In the craziness that was Microsoft's Windows 7 launch yesterday, I received a little delivery. As I tore open the box marked 'Amazon' with excitement, I was trying my best to contain my excitement. As the Kindle appeared, resplendent in its shiny cream plastic and brushed aluminium back, I allowed myself a grin, because I've been waiting for this frickin thing for too long.
Is it possible to bring something fresh to the table in the DSLR market? Sure it is, but it all comes down to the same thing in the end. Better specs, filling a niche position in the market, and refining the product. Hello, Canon 7D.
In case you're one of the lucky ones toting a Canon 5D Mark II around, know that the 1.1.0 firmware update is available, which enables manual exposure control for video mode.
The rumours were true. Canon has crammed the $US1500 50D's sensor and 5D-Mark-II-like 1080p video capture into an $US899 entry-level Rebel. We ran it through its paces for a few hours, and it's awesome.
AU: The local announcement came through as well - The 500D (as it's known here) will launch in May, with all RRPs TBC. We'll let you know more when we do.
We thought that we already knew just how glorious that Canon's $US2,699 EOS 5D Mark II would be, but the camera has one trick up its sleeve that's more practical than another megapixel boost, or maybe even its ability to capture 1080p HD video. Seriously. The camera can keep track of up to six batteries in its internal database, managing which of them still have juice.
If you are looking for a good prosumer Canon camera, then you will only have to wait four more days. According to a Best Buy tipster, and this leaked screenshot of their stock system, the Canon EOS 50D will arrive on October 5.
Moody, very moody, and quite serious: that's how I'd label the new teaser from Canon that gives the merest hints of an upcoming "serious" EOS camera. Have a look at that bulky shoulder and the smooth curve over the pentaprism mount—classic high-end EOS right there: the apparent lack of pop-up flash is the give-away. Clearly it's time for Canon to draw attention away from Nikon with its swanky new D90, but what's it got ready for us under the "destined evolution" banner? Best guess so far is a 5D upgrade, but over to you in the comments, EOS fans.
We can say with pretty high confidence that a 5D successor, the 5D Mk II, will be hitting before '08 is out, and with Photokina coming up later this month, rumours are beginning to fly. Canon Rumors is vouching for their source that just dropped them the following tasty-looking specs on the new full-frame sensor, top-end Canon EOS DSLR: 21.1 MP, DIGIC IV, and an HD movie mode (like the D90's), among others.
It looks like data on the upcoming Canon EOS 50D DSLR has been leaked onto the web, by Canon itself. Details appeared briefly on Canon's China site, although the link now is disabled, and gave an insight into what specs the beast will have. They're pretty decent: it's a 15.1-megapixel camera (with standard 1.6x CMOS sensor factor) with a 9-segment AF/AE sensor array, 95% view viewfinder and shoots at ISO 100 to 3200, with an "expansion" to 6400 and 12800. There's also face recognition auto focus, 6.3 frames-per-second high-speed shooting, and 14-bit image processing by the Digic 4 processor. Interestingly it'll have an HDMI output too. Obviously we'll have to wait for a proper release to know more—including data on prices and release dates.
The Gadget: EOS Wireless iPod Dock/Wireless Speaker system, which has one base unit that can take either an iPod or anything that can feed into its 3.5mm aux input (wire included). With this one base unit you can feed up to four satellite wireless units up to 45 metres away (or less through walls and floors).
Canon's entry-level EOS Rebel XS (1000D) just got more official stateside, with a price and release date: US$699.99 for the kit, with the same f/3.5-5.6 18-55mm image-stabilizing lens as the XSi, and it ships next month. Note that Canon has dropped the "Digital" part of the name, since it's sort of redundant. To see how it stacks up against the XTi and XSi, check out our easy comparison chart here, or hit the press release below.
