Droolworthy Canon SX10

Canon SX10
So the Canon SX10 is coming out soon, but should I really be this excited?

It’s got the same specs as the Rebel XTi, but there are two great features that makes it a great new acquisition:

  1. 20x Optical zoom: Do I really need to explain why this is a killer feature? it’s just awesome to go from landscape to grass blade at the flick of a wrist. Oh, okay maybe not that dramatic, but still…
  2. Flip-out LCD screen: It’s a silly, gimmicky thing, I know. But I miss having it. It makes self-portraits and group shots a hellluva lot easier to do. If it wasn’t for my flip-out LCD back in the day, I wouldn’t exist in photos at all!

The $400 price tag is also nice.


Canon fights fire with fire…

Not long after the Nikon D90 was announced (and tested) does Canon announce the 5D Mark II. The rumors are already flying and I hope with every fiber of my being that the HD Movie Mode feature bears at least some truth! If they make good on this one, I’m sticking with Canon indefinitely!

Suck on D’s nuts

So the Nikon D90 is almost going to be released to the masses. Everyone’s favorite ninja commercial photographer Chase Jarvis got to exclusively try it out before it’s officially on sale.

here’s some video evidence if you don’t believe me:

This is upsetting because I love my Canon Rebel XTi, but after seeing this, I’m tempted to jump ship and join the Nikon users.

What was the thing that sold me on this gadget? The movie recording function. It records in 720p, blowing my expectations out of the water! I thought it was going to be another 320px x 480px point-n-shoot type recorder. But noooo! This makes me want to sell my Canon XL1 and use the Nikon D90 instead to produce my films.

Must stay strong…must stick with Canon…

C’mon Canon, the ball’s in your court — come out with a DSLR that will record in 720p!
