    Well, if this is anything to go by, it looks like the 350d is about to be replaced.
    Anybody like to hazard a guess as to what features the new camera will have?

    Rumor has it that they'll announce a replacement to the EOS350D at the Photokina show in late September.

    It is just a rumor tho...

    Not rebadged just the name of the camera in the Colonies, its called "Kiss n" if memory serves for the Japenese market.

    The book says XTi, not XT so one could assume that will be the new US name.

    I can't think it will be a major upgrade as Canon would annoy far too many 30D users by upping the megapixel count to compete with Sony and Nikon. I suspect they'll make a few handling improvements, improve the LCD screen, add in picture styles and spot metering and leave it at that i.e. a cut down 30D.

    The fact that it states XTi and the book won't be out until Feb, leads me to beleive that a replacement will be out early in the new year. The author already has a guide on the 350D (rebel XT).
    As you've pointed out baron, too many improvements/extra features will bring it close to the 30D but as a company they should be seen to be competitive and maybe they'll surprise us all by incuding on board IS, although the extra cost of this might be too much. It's the entry level market that will be the most profitable for them so I do expect something that will try to steal the thunder from Nikon and Sony. Only time will tell.

    The rumor mill continues!

    I'm not too sure how much of the spec I believe though, I mean 10.1 Mega Pixels?!! Surely they'd have bunged that sensor into something like the 30D first?

    Photokina takes place in September. I'm sure there will a number of new product announcements around that time so not too long to wait :)

    Tend to agree with Barongreenback/Tomato1, I too would have thought a 10Mp EOS30D would have come first, but it's a cut-throat business, so who knows...
    Just to change the subject slightly, the rumour I read somewhere was of a 22Mp replacement for the EOS1Ds being announced shortly (I vaguely recall August 24th as a date, too)....so maybe TWO new Canon DSLRs soon.

    Looks like 2 new lenses due as well as the 400D will be announced. Best thing is it looks like the EF70-200 f4 L is going to get IS. This lens is on my list of things to buy so I hope IS doesn't add too much more.

    ooh, that'll make the 70-300IS Vs 70-200f4 fights more interesting! Although it will probably add a fair amount to the cost.

    no point upgrading if its just a few more megapixels and a bigger LCD (although the LCD on the 350d is a bit rubbish).

    I would upgrade if they put in a bigger viewfinder and/or added the additional focus sensor for 2.8 lenses (like the 30D)

    Did a bit of trawling aroung, looks like 70-200f4L IS and 50mm f1.2L.....(EDIT: just read the "400D" thread, but didn't get the info from there).

    Suggestions are that the "370D" rumours (some specs indicate is DOES have improved AF) are "true" (and of late such rumours of the 5D/ Nikon D200 and D80 have been pretty close to the mark), and that pricewise it's going to be close to the Nikon D50, . Suggestions are that the 30D will not last too much longer (strange that they chose to launch it if that's the case)....

    Still, it could all be "pie in the sky". Guess we'll find out soon.......

    Canon shoots for Sony
    Answering the challenge of Sony’s debut DSLR, Canon’s snapped out a full featured camera, with performance bumps all round.
    Click to enlarge 1 of 1
    Canon's newest DSLR comes gunning for Sony's rival snapper... [more images]Packing in 10.1 megapixels, Canon’s sensor is just short of the Sony Alpha, but comes in at a lower price with lens included.

    Like the Alpha’s dust-shaking peeper, Canon’s new baby also packs a system to keep its innards squeaky clean, as well as nine-point auto focusing and a brighter 2.5-inch screen.

    Marking a step up from the EOS 350D, Canon says its new snapper is ready to shoot in 0.2 seconds, and almost doubles the frame burst of its predecessor, shooting 27 large JPEGs in a row.
