The Canon 60D has been officially unveiled. The new EOS 60D features an 18MP CMOS sensor, in-camera RAW processing and Full HD video capture. The 60D is also the first DSLR from Canon that features a fully articulating LCD, which is a 3-inch LCD with a 1.04-million dot resolution.
The Canon 60D will capture 1920 x 1080 resolution video at 24p, 25p or 30p. In 720p resolution, the 60D captures 50p or 60p frame rates. In addition to manual control for video, the 60D also includes manual audio levels in 64 steps, akin to the recent firmware updates for the 5D Mark II.
The Canon 60D should be available in September at an initial retail price of $1099 for body only, or $1399 with an included 18-135mm IS USM kit lens. Check availability on Amazon.com.
