Canon Announces the EOS 90D APS-C DSLR Camera

As part of a relatively big batch of announcements, Canon announced today the successor to their semi-professional DSLR line, the Canon EOS 90D. 

One of Canon's older DSLR lines that roots from the Canon EOS 10D (released in 2003) fondly called as the EOS two-digit series for semi-professional APS-C cameras has been updated today with the announcement of the Canon EOS 90D. The 90D boasts of a 32.5 Megapixel CMOS sensor powered by a DIGIC 8 image processor, similar to it's smaller twin brother, the EOS M6 mark II. It is interesting that Canon released the two new camera bodies to cater to those who have certain preferences over DSLR and mirrorless camera bodies. 

The 90D packs capabilities like 10fps continuous shooting, 45-point cross-type auto-focus with Dual Pixel CMOS AF, maximum ISO of 25600 for Still images and 12800 for video. It's capable of 4K, 120p High frame rate full HD shooting, 4K frame grab and an on-board 4K Time-lapse mode. The camera comes with the now standard WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. It has the same vari-angle touchscreen LCD like its predecessors.

The new Canon EOS 90D camera is now available for pre-order with a $1,199 price tag for the 90D Body-only set, $1,349 for the body+EF 18-55mm kit and $1,599 for the body+18-135mm all around zoom lens kit.

This particular camera has caught my eye for a wildlife camera. I love the bump up in resolution and ergonomics. Should compete well with Nikon's D500.

I might add to FF 5Ds

This might be a nice replacement for my original 7D.

I want to see announcements for the Canon 5DMkV and Nikon D900....then the 5DmkIV and D850 prices will drop like a rock.

I'm really interested in the shutter system. I have hopes that the electronic shutter they talk about in the specs will be an all on all off set up. Who know what the draw backs will be, or if it even works at all shutter speeds, but think of the advantages of sync speeds being a thing of the past! If It's the way I hope it is, it will surely upset some strobe and speedlite brands. Imagine how amazing it would be people!!!! No fall off at any speed! being able to get the most out of your lights! I'm probably getting worked up for nothing but aaaaaaaaaannyway

Does it have Dual Pixel AF in 4k? How about full sensor 4k or is it cropped?

I thought their last version would let you do Dual AF but only 1080p for some odd reason.

This 90D seems like a camera that could be useful for the type of photography that I do, but the price will have to drop significantly before a purchase would be cost effective. Its release price is $1199 USD. When the Canon 50D was released in 2008, its release price was $1399 ..... and less than a year and a half later I was able to buy one on the used market for $450. Hopefully the 90D prices fall just as quickly as the 50D prices fell a decade ago. This would be a cost effective body if I could get one for about $400. I have no problem waiting a year and a half for that to happen.
