I just read the new bad boy Canon 50D is due to hit the streets soon. At first glance it appears not that big an improvement. Sort of like when Canon released the 30D a year after the 20D.
Coincidentally this “arms race” between Nikon and Canon, doesn’t appear to be letting off. Nikon just announced the release of their D90.
I used to get caught up with the latest and greatest. Not so much anymore.
Better to invest my energy in learning new skills whether it’s a photoshop trick, a new recipe that’s easy, quick to fix and nutritious which my kids won’t wrinkle their noses at.
Naturally I speak as someone who’s got priorities. I’m actually more anxiously awaiting the Canon 5D’s replacement.
The Canon 5D is a good buy but it lacks the sensor cleaning capability.
If you shoot regularly with any volume at all, you will find this feature indispensable saving you hours of aging at the computer cloning out dust specs.

And for the geeks in us all, Lenovo Thinkpad announced a 17″ notebook with specs that should make Steve Jobs and company MacBook Pro 17″ owners take notice.
Great for consumers, unfortunately not this one. Actually I’m quite â€œtech-trifiedâ€ already.
