    Canon 6D announced today

    It looks like Canon is now releasing their 6D. It's quite a step up from the 5D.

    Briefly it has the following upgrades:

    1. 18mp sensor
    2. In-body IS with dust reduction
    3. Switchable (there's a soft switch on the body) between normal, IR and UV sensitivity.

    They say it should be available sometime next month.

    I'm broke. Besides, I'd have to get another computer even sooner to handle such huge files.
    Ouch.

    I stuck with 3mp compact digitals because I didn't figure bigger files were worthwhile for somebody that printed to 10x8 or A4 and never bigger.

    With my dSLRs I seem to be sticking to 8mp - partly because I don't see the need for bigger images -even when selling them - but also because of the limited quantity one can put on a single DVD.

    One of the best things the memory card manufacturers could do would be to make 4.7GB CF cards

    The 4MP of the 1D produced a spectacular 8x10 of Maranda last night. I was going to see what an 11x14 looks like but I didn't feel like bustin' out the roll paper for just one image. Based on the 8x10, the 11x14 will look great too.
    Ouch.
