02/21/07: Exciting News for Our 300th Post -- Canon Mark III Coming Soon!!

This is our 300th Daily Photo Tips post...and it's an exciting one!

Rumors about Canon introducing an amazing new camera this spring are all over the photo forums. My friend Phil Pool of Omni Photo by Phil just sent me this little tidbit about the NEW Canon Mark III camera and other new products from our friends at Canon. Thanks for the tip, Phil!

According to the article, the Mark III will be a 10 MP, APS-H sensor (1.3X factor), beast capable of shooting 10 frames per second...making it the world's fastest D-SLR. Other cool features include live-view LCD screen, ISO ranging from 50 to 6400, and the EOS integrated sensor cleaning system first introduced in 2006 on the Xti model. Canon has also improved the auto-focus technology and introduces all new Digic III image processors -- for improved fine image detail.

Read the rest of the article for more details about the Mark III and other great new products from Canon. (Must go call my broker now to buy more Canon stock!)

EDIT: Just noticed that info about the new Mark III is now up on the Canon web-site. Check it out here. Canon says that this new beast will be available in April 2007.
