Canon Announces 60D Digital SLR Camera
Today, August 26, 2010 Canon announce the new 60D Digital SLR camera. This is 2 years after the 50D was announced, a long time in this camera series which has had new models nearly every year.
Major new changes include:
- Vari-Angle LCD Screen,
- EOS Full HD Video Recording
- In-Camera RAW Processing
- In-Camera Movie Editing
- Movie Crop Mode (7x magnification when shooting SD video)
- Creative Filters
- 18-Megapixel Resolution
- Multi-Controller inside Quick Control Dial
- Built -in Intergrated Speedlight Transmitter
- Electronic Level Display
- ISO 100-6400 expandable to 12,800
- Uses SD, SDHC, or extended Capacity SDXC Memory cards
- iFCL Metering System (Intelligent Focus, Color, Luminance)
The first time Canon has placed a moveable view finder on a DSLR, the new 60D camera features a large Vari-Angle 3-inch Clear View LCD screen. The new LCD screen is ideal for composing low-angle or overhead shots whether capturing still images or Full HD video clips.
This is the first DSLR camera that I know of to offer in-camera RAW processing, giving the ability to shoot in RAW, and then delivery processed images without having to download and process them on a computer. You can also resize your JPG files without losing your original high resolution file in camera.

Priced at $1099 body only, I’m putting my name on a waiting list today, hoping it is available as announced in late September.
