Full review (with samples!) posted for Canon EOS-10D! (!)|
(Thursday, February 27, 2003 - 09:25 EST)
Ever since it became evident that Canon's wildly popular EOS-D60 was getting scarce on dealers shelves back around the beginning of the year, speculation has run rampant over what that might mean.
Rumors trickled out that Canon had stopped manufacturing it, so everyone (myself included) began speculating about what the replacement for it might be, and when it would arrive. Well... It's arrived today! Canon has just announced the EOS-10D, the 6-megapixel replacement for the D60.
Calling it a "D60 replacement" hardly does the new camera justice though, as it's packed with myriad enhancements affecting virtually every area of its operation. The net result is a really excellent new digital SLR, that advances the state of the art, while simultaneously lowering the price. Canon managed to get a sample of the 10D in my hands *just* before the public announcement, and by dint of long hours (and yoeman duty from digi-helpers Chris, Stephanie and Yazmin, not to mention Resident Pro Gibbs Frazeur) we've put together a full review of it.
The very short elapsed time means that I don't *quite* have the results from all my standardized test photos digested and collated yet, but we do have a nice assortment of random "gallery" photos, shot by Gibbs over the last few days. I'm about 80% done with the image analysis from the test photos, so we should have the sample-pictures page and full test results posted by the end of the day today.
Meanwhile, read the review, and check out Gibbs Gallery shots!
