Canon Announces New Rebel T3/1100D. 720p HD Video.
I just got word of this new entry level camera by Canon from DP Review. It looks like the new Canon Rebel T3/ EOS 1100D will only have 1280 X 720 video according to the press release. I could not find any pricing yet. Here is a rip from DP Review.
“Canon has unveiled the 1100D entry-level DSLR. Built around a 12MP CMOS sensor and the latest Digic 4 processor, the new baby-Rebel is also capable of 720p HD movie recording. It gains the 9-point AF sensor previously used in more expensive models and the iFCL color-sensitive metering sensor first seen in the EOS 7D. It also gains the Basic+ non-technical interface that allows creative control without specialist photography knowledge. The camera will be sold either with the revised, version II 18-55mm IS lens or an updated Mark III non-stabilized version.”
