According to Engadget who spotted on the official Chinese Canon web site some new Canon EOS DSLR information, we may expect a new Canon digital SLR introduction; Canon EOS 400D. Before some of you point a finger to us and say boo…; "No, we are not under NDA. So far we have not been informed by any official Canon contact." Digging a little bit deeper we found some interesting information and will sum it for you. First of all, the new Canon EOS 400D suppose to have a new CMOS image sensor incorporated. The new CMOS sensor features 10.1 effective Megapixels and has an integrated dust removal system. Furthermore the Canon 400D is equipped with a large 2.5-inch LCD monitor and a 9-point auto focus system.

A new interesting feature of the Canon EOS 400D is the integrated dust removal system which offers three methods. First, after turning on the Canon 400D removes all dust via ultrasound vibration. This procedure may take one second, but can be interrupted any time by just pressing the shutter release button halfway down, so you'll never miss an important shot. Second, via software (Digital Photo Professional 2.2) where the image is cleaned through some kind of calculation. And last, remove the dust by hand. The old method where you lock up the mirror, shutter curtain opens en you may be able to blow away any dust on the sensor.
