Canon 60D announcement + bunch of new lenses!

I just saw on CanonRumors the press release of the 60D.

Here is the executive summary:

  • 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 (same settings as the 7D)
  • 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

Priced at about 1100$, it is probably going to replace the 7D as the second camera for a lot of shooters (and main camera for a lot of people too!).

Other than its attractive price point, I really like the vari-angle LCD. Its usefulness is very context dependent but for shooting from a tripod or steadicam device, it is going to be a life saver. Actually, I think it is THE feature that will make this camera a must have for a lot of HDSLR shooters.

We will have to wait for official reviews before calling it a 7D killer, but lets say everything looks like it since they share so many features.

Note: Canon also released a bunch of pro lenses, we will talk about these very soon.

You can get it (reservation) here
. Hurry up, I think they will sell quite fast!
