Canon announces entry-level DSLR

Posted by Ferdie Flores, MSCE, Wedding Photographer based in the Philippines


I just wanna share with you, shutterbugs and Photo addicts that the word is out… “Canon has announced the introduction of its Entry-level DSLR – the 500D“. … and get this, it now features lustful Canon’s Full Frame 5D’s pride: “The HD movie recording!”  I have yet to get my hands on a 5D! Whoohoo:) Soon baby! Very, very soon!

So weather you are a wedding photographer, a Fashion Photographer, Food, People, it would be a perfect back-up camera! It might not be what you need, but hey, this HD movie DSLR camera will certainly fit the budget!  It’ll certainly make the Nikon’s D90 a run for the money!

Read more about the release here.

The EOS 500D will be available in authorized Canon stores by May 2009.
