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.”
▪ 12MP CMOS sensor
▪ 9-point AF system (up from 7 on the 1000D)

Really, The Right Way To mount The Camera.
Really Right Stuff makes custom mounting plates for still cameras. Most of their base plates have a lip that prevents camera shift. This is critical when using a mechanical or powered follow focus system. Most HDSLR’s have a single 1/4 inch mounting screw. Really Right Stuff mounting plates solve this problem completely.
I ended up calling them a few times before I placed the order as the web site is a bit confusing. They only sell direct so make sure you are getting the correct parts for your camera. The “L” Plates are much more expensive than standard bottom plates. According to Carla over at Really Right Stuff each plate is made from a solid block, hence the added cost for the “L” plate.
I got mounting plates for the Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 7D. The B5D2 ( For The 5D MK II) and B7D (For The 7D) were each $55. The QR baseplate with lever was $120. Not Cheap, but worth the cost to keep the camera from shifting.
