Canon brings the EOS 60D digital SLR camera as the follow-up to the EOS 50D. The new 60D is equipped with a 18 Megapixel Canon CMOS image sensor, the DIGIC 4 image processor, and for the first time on an EOS camera, a 3-inch Vari-Angle Clear View LCD screen.
Canon’s new EOS is capable of Full HD 1920×1080 video recording at selectable frame rates of 24p, 25p or 30p. It includes an in-camera movie editing feature and offers HDMI output. The 60D features ISO 100-6400, 5.3 fps continuous shooting, RAW + JPEG Simultaneous Recording, in-camera RAW image processing, the new new Multi-Control Dial, which places a Multi-Controller and Set button inside the Quick Control Dial, and the creative image filters. Live View function is also included.
The Canon EOS 60D will be released in late-September in a body-only configuration at $1099, or in a kit version with Canon’s EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM zoom lens at $1399.
