Nikon D200

Nikon D200

A lot of people have been waiting a long time for this one. The Nikon D200 ($1700; available in Dec.) is more than just a replacement for 2002’s D100 — it is a real step forward in affordable dSLRs with professional stats. I features a 10.2 megapixel CCD, a 2.5” LCD, can shoot at a sustained 5 frames per second for up to 37 frames, and can take up to 1800 shots per charge. Now comes the hard part — trying to find somewhere to dump off your D100 from yesteryear.

  • Canon Powershot SD550

    While still just a pocket camera, the Powershot SD550 from Canon ($440) boasts a lot of features taken from its larger counterparts. Take for instance the DIGIC II Processor it shares with the dSLR Rebel XT — it provides this pocket-sized 7.1 megapixel monster with some of the fastest, most reliable internal image processing in the business. Add to that versatile SD storage, a 3x optical zoom, and an easy-to-read 2.5 inch LCD screen, and you’ve got a camera that can stand up to models costing much more and that are way larger.

  • Canon XL H1 High Definition Camcorder

    Canon today unveiled its very first high-definition camcorder. And while it may be for the pros (think TV news, documentary and feature filmmaking), the XL H1 Camcorder ($9000; available in November) could bring some major firepower to your home movies if you've got the cash to drop. It delivers crystal clear 16:9 HD video at 1080i resolution and features selectable frame rates of 60i, 30F and 24F, and Canon's professional
    "Jackpack" terminals.
