Canon dumping the XTI, then what's next and when?

Discussion in 'Canon' started by 3Putt from CoastalSouth Carolina, Dec 12, 2007.

  1. Falling prices, special 2 lens kits. What is the Rebel replacement and
    when?

  3. Dougals-

    That's funny!

    The first apostrophe is incorrect, though.

    The 40D isn't all that much more than the XTi was when new.

    Falling prices do not necessarily imply that the product is about to
    be replaced.

    Falling prices can also reflect lower manufacturing costs and the fact
    that development costs are now paid for.

    FWIW, I expect that the Rebel XTi, and probably the Nikon D80 are due
    for updates. Live view seems to be the feature most likely to come, as
    Canon and Nikon now lack that feature found on several competitor's
    models at about that price point and below. I'd expect that the D80
    replacement should come with a version of the D300 sensor, but probably
    not the AF module and high frame rate.

    Canon has NOT dispensed with the XTi. The OP is making it up, all
    based on the fact that XTi prices have reduced recently.

    All electronic goods are getting cheaper. It doesn't mean they are
    discontinued. It just means they are getting cheaper.

    So is the comma (should be a semicolon), and there's no period at the end.
    While you were at it, how did you manage to miss those errors?

  11. No, not making it up. There is now a mail-in rebate, and some photo shops
    have instant rebates of the XTI of $100. Ritz camera manager told me they
    are no longer available, and out of production, unless they are still
    available in the stores. I know, there are a ton of them for sale on Ebay.
    They are no longer available at our local Sam's and Costco stores. Office
    Depot stores have a few at the inflated $799 price. I suspect that the
    Canon 40D may be it's replacement. But thanks all for the Nikon input.
    Anyone want to buy my D50?

  12. none of that suggests in the slightest that Canon have 'dumped' the
    400d/xti. Sure, they might be reducing the price,or individual retailers are
    selling at a discount but there's no WAY Canon would suddenly pull the plug
    on the rebel franchise. The canon 40d was an upgrade of the 30d, and
    hopefully , if your rational is anything to go by, then I might as well wait
    for Canon to launch a Canon 5d MkII, and then pick up the existing 5d in
    exchange for a handful of magic beans or a kurt rambis rookie card with some
    pop rocks as a fair trade.

    Nonsense. The 40D is in a much higher price bracket, and it the
    replacement for the 30D.

    You need to learn a little more about Canon's model range before you
    make such misleading statements. Your ignorance of it is getting you
    into trouble.

  14. I didn't miss them; I thought better of adding on too much.
    But awfully pleased you know English good.

  15. There seems to be a real price war on the kits (bodies with 2 lenses) at
    places like Costco, with the XTi battling the D40x for sales.

    They might discontinue the XT, as they don't seem to be promoting it
    much anymore, just like Nikon with the D40.

    Something plastic, ugly and uncomfortable. Much like the whole Rebel
    line.

    Well....

    The Rebel began life at US$999, and the 40D (body only) is currently listed
    at US$1,299 at B&H, so... it's not really a "much higher price bracket" at
    that.

    They all look like perfectly fine, well constructed apostrophes to
    me. The first one was used incorrectly, though. :)

    I agree. There might be a 450D in the wings, but I'd bet that
    the next three digit model number will be 500D.

    Canon seems not to like to tip its hand before the introduction
    of a new model and the XTi is getting a bit long of tooth.

    But of course I could be very wrong.

    The 300D was introduced in Aug '03, the 350D in Feb '04, and the 400D
    in Aug '06. Extrapolating, the 450D will be announced in Feb '08.
