New Cameras Galore at PMA Show
With regard to the red-hot DSLR market, there will be plenty to talk about in this category coming out of PMA including Canon’s highly-anticipated next step in the rebel series – the Rebel XSi. Canon has already touted the rebel series as, “The cameras that defined and refined what it means to be an ‘entry level’ digital SLR.” Well, now they are telling us they have now redefined, “the gateway prowess and ‘pro-ness’ of the DSLR category” with the introduction the 12.2-megapixel EOS Rebel XSi camera. Incorporating a number of high-end functions and technology found in Canon’s professional SLR models, the EOS Rebel XSi camera includes an improved autofocus sensor, enhanced 14-bit A/D conversion, an advanced Live View function, and the proprietary DIGIC III image processor. With all this new “pro-ness” the price tag has inched up just a bit, to $799 body only – but the entry-level DSLR category gets more interesting by eh day

Pentax has also released two new DSLRSs – the K200D and the K20D, two new models that strengthen the company’s standing in both the entry-level end of the market as well as the higher end.
