After over a week of intense rumors, Canon announced two new DSLRs Monday, along with new compact cameras, photo printers, lenses, and a flash unit. The hottest news was the 12.8MP full-frame EOS 5D DSLR ($3,299 estimated street price), which is expected to hit stores in October. The magnesium alloy body houses a 35.8x23.9mm CMOS sensor, 2.5-inch LCD with 230,000-pixel resolution, and a newly designed pentaprism, in a unit that measures 6x4.4x3-inches and weighs 31.5 ounces with battery installed.
