Canon EOS 60D


$1,099.00 Released August, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Records to easy to find, affordable and capacious SD/SDHC/SDXC flash storage cards. 3" 3:2 aspect 1040k dot articulating display - stunning, images fill the display fully. Top plate LCD for displaying camera settings.

The Cons:Has been moved downwards in the line to find a middle ground between the T2i and the 7D - a focus on a prosumer rather than fully professional body design. Drops the magnesium alloy construction of the previous 50D. Actually slower than the 50D (5.3 vs 6.3fps).

The Canon EOS 60D is a high-end digital SLR camera designed for casual users interested in professional grade quality photographs. The EOS 60D features an 18 megapixel CMOS censor combined with Canon's Digic 4 processor which Canon claims will work "seamlessly for finer detail and excellent color reproduction".
