Pre-Photkina 2006: Canon has today announced the latest evolution in their affordable digital SLR series, the ten megapixel EOS 400D / Digital Rebel XTi. Headline new features / specifications include the ten megapixel CMOS sensor (up to ISO 1600), a new dust reduction system, nine area auto focus, Picture Styles, a large 2.5" LCD monitor which now also provides shooting information (the second control panel LCD is gone) and better continuous shooting buffering.
Phil: Canon did not provide us with any press materials until after the embargo (which occurred at 4 AM GMT), this designed intended to avoid those embarassing leaks which occur before almost every significant Canon announcement. As usual in this instance the 'accidental leak' still occured. I had a meeting at 9.30 AM and have been away from my desk since then.
As a site which is proud of its track record of never breaking embargo it is frankly ridiculous to punish us for the failings of their own systems. We did not receive a briefing on this camera (officially we knew nothing about the EOS 400D until 4 AM GMT this morning) however Canon did brief, at some length it appears, other sites. So my apologies to our readers for having no in-depth editorial insight and no preview. We did have a positive meeting with Canon today and do hope this type of situation will not be repeated.
