It’s been a long time coming but it’s finally here, the new Canon EOS 60D. This little baby fits nicely between Canon’s T2i (550D) and their APS-C (crop sensor) flagship 7D. One of the features unique to this camera is an articulating LCD display. Here’s a quick breakdown of what this little gem sports:
- 18 MP APS-C CMOS sensor
- Advanced creative features with Basic +
- Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 ratio LCD
- Full HD movies with manual control
- DIGIC 4
- ISO 100-6400, H:12800
- 5.3fps shooting for up to 58 JPEGs
- 9-point cross type AF System
- iFCL metering with 63-zone Dual-layer Sensor
- Integrated Speedlite transmitter
- In-camera RAW processing
Some of the neater features found on this camera include: an AF centre cross point that is extra sensitive, ideal for lenses faster than F2.8; a handful of in-camera creative filters for manipulating images, such as grainy b & w, toy camera, soft focus, and miniature; support of SDXC memory cards; built-in wireless flash controller; HD movie recording; adjustable aspect ratios; and much more.
Me, I’d still go for the 7D, but this does sound like a nice addition to the Canon DSLR lineup. If you want to read the press release and a hands-on preview, drop by dpreview.com for all the juicy details.
