Sensors are just like cpu's and for the most part, Moore's Law should be fairly applicable. In the electronics industry, 18 months is like 5-7 years in other sectors. There's no way Canon would just sit around and put a 2+ year old sensor back into a new model.

There are a number of "must have" features the new Rebel has got to implement, or else the entire line will be well behind until the next refresh in August 2009. I don't think Canon can wait that long to include spot-metering, more accurate auto-focus, custom white balance, higher ISO range, greater sensor sensitivity, less noise, and higher frame rates.

I've seen a number of 350D Cameras for less than $300.

There is absolutely no point whatsoever in upgrading the xti at the moment, its more than good enough as it is...


Canon 40D :: 50mm f1.8 mk II :: 17-40mm f4 L :: EX 430 :: Canon EOS 50 :: Canon AE-1 Program :: FD 50mm f1.8 :: FD 28mm f2.8 :: FD 135mm f3.5 :: Ilford HP5 Film :: Developing kit. No website, nothing serious, I just like taking photos

I'm just rambling here but I'd be surprised if we see a Rebel series update this month! You really can't ask for too much more out of an entry level <$700 camera IMHO.

With the XTi already having the same resolution as the (brand new) 40D, sensor cleaning, the same LCD as the 30D and the bargain price tag i think the XTi is already an amazing piece of gear and is by no means "obselete".

</rambling>

A Digic III would be nice, I think. My girlfriend's new $150 Elph has one ;)

My XT does custom white balance. The XTi must do this as well, no?

Using that damn timer / shot selection button (which lets be honest, should be within the menu not wasted on a hard button!) for something more useful like direct ISO control (combo with wheel + viewfinder display) would be a fine upgrade in my opinion, and would be VERY easy for Canon to implement!

It will be the Rebel XTs. Same sensor, 3" screen, live-view, dust remover (already had in XTi), increased noise and DR performance (gaining of 2 stops more or so claims Canon), support for UDMA cards, Digic3, Canon wireless master built in, improved AF performance and 4 new cross sensors around the center AF point. Lastly from what I hear it should be priced at $599. Not too shabby.

Yup! All joking aside, those are the features I'm hoping for as well.
I guess we'll know in less than 2 weeks.

Because it means that 350D prices will plunge even lower, 350D as a backup/loaner body will be great. I'm waiting for 350D bodies to go below $350

Hate to break it to you, but the price isn't going to drop much more. Xti will become the base model at its current price and the Xt will go discontinued at its current price. The new model will debut at a $1000 body-only price.

NO way the 450D is going to be a $1000 body. I don't care how you slice it, Canon is not going to have the 450D @ $1000 and the 40D $1200. I'll bet the 450D has an MSRP of no more than $749 and a street price around $685 initially.

Won't happen. The 40D price is going to stay where it is, and if anything the 450D will debut @ $899-999, and eventually fall. (I'm talking Canadian prices) The Xti will become the base model at its current price.
