Canon officially unveils EOS 50D

Having already given anyone who cared to look a glimpse of their new DSLR last week, Canon has officially confirmed the release of their new EOS 50D.

The spec sheet is exactly as expected, with a 15.1MP sensor, a DIGIC 4 image processor, support for ISO up to a massive 12,800, a 3in LCD with Live View and face detection and HDMI for checking your snaps on your HDTV.

Canon says this one's aimed at “the advanced amateur”, with a price tag to match. With a lens it'll set you back £1,500, with the body costing £1,200. So you'll need to get saving if you want to make like a celeb hounding tabloid snapper.

And remember if all this seems too much to take, you can always snaffle yourself one of their new A series instead.
