Canon has outed a new DSLR to take place of its successful 50D camera. The EOS 60D is aimed at “advanced amateurs” and brings in a lot of new features that were till now unknown to the EOS range.
Amongst the firsts includes a 3-inch Vari-angle LCD screen, multi-control dial and new in-camera enhancements. The EOS 60D now features a 3-inch Vari-angle display that allows users to adjust and take pictures virtually from any angle. Additionally, the screen is also resistant to smudges and has an anti-reflective surface.
The Multi-control dial places a multi-controller and set button into the Quick Control Dial. This layout ensures a cleaner camera design and makes camera navigation easy for vertical or horizontal shooting.
The final first is the in-camera processing of RAW image files, image resizing, creative image filters that creates an edited copy of the original image.
As for the remaining features the EOS 60D features an 18-megapixel CMOS sensor, 9-point autofocus system, iFCL metering system, ISO range from 100 to 12,800, Live View, full HD video recording at selectable frame rates and SDHC/SDXC card support.
The Canon EOS 60D will reach consumers by end of September for $1099 or $1399 with EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM zoom lens.
