Canon has unveiled the new digital SLR camera EOS 60D that will be a successor to the existing EOS 50D.
The DSLR, which boasts an 18 megapixel image sensor, features a large swivel screen 3-inch LCD Display with 1,040,000 dot/VGA resolution plus anti-reflective and smudge-resistant coatings for bright clear viewing from any angle.
It has a single DIGIC 4 processor, provides full HD 1080p video recording and features in-camera processing of RAW image files (includes Picture Style, White Balance, Color Space, High-ISO Noise Reduction, Peripheral Illumination Correction, linear distortion correction and chromatic aberration correction).
Canon has also included an in-camera movie editing feature, allowing users to shorten a video file by clipping segments from the beginning or the end.
The camera has an ISO range of 100-6,400 which is expandable to 12800. This helps in shooting better quality images even in low light conditions. The nine-point autofocus system on the DSLR features f/5.6-sensitive cross-type focusing on all nine focusing points. It also comes with built-in wireless flash controller.
Canon will make EOS 60D body only available for $1099. It will cost $1399 if an 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens is added into the package. It is scheduled to be delivered to US dealers toward the end of September.
