August 2010

Canon has announced the new 18 Megapixel EOS 60D APS-C format DSLR that will replace the EOS 50D in the EOS range and offers high performance, a series of creative features, a Vari-angle LCD screen and enhanced ergonomics to help photographers to capture stills and Full High Definition (HD) video.

High speed, high resolution

The EOS 60D's 18 Megapixel APS-C sensor, with a magnification of 1.6x the focal length of the lens, offers high levels of detail for capturing poster-size images in a variety of aspect ratios (3:2, 1:1, 16:9 and 4:3).

Canon's powerful DIGIC 4 processor technology rapidly processes image information captured from the CMOS sensor's four-channel output to provide outstanding colour reproduction, as well as high-speed shooting at 5.3 frames per second in bursts of up to 58 full-resolution JPEGs.

The camera's standard ISO range of 100-6400 is expandable to ISO 12,800, providing smooth images with minimal noise in low light conditions. A 9-point, all cross-type autofocus (AF) system provides swift and accurate focusing, with an extra-sensitive centre point for shooting with lenses faster than f/2.8 – thus allowing photographers to artistically employ a shallow depth-of-field during portraiture or for more atmospheric shooting.

The EOS 60D features Canon's iFCL metering system – introduced in the acclaimed EOS 7D DSLR – with a 63-zone Dual-Layer sensor. Information on subject location is gathered from the autofocus system, and is combined with colour and luminance readings for consistently accurate exposures whatever the situation. Also a ‘trickle-down' technology from the EOS 7D, the EOS 60D's Integrated Speedlite Transmitter provides in-camera control of multiple Canon EX flashgun units for more creative lighting options.

New 3.0" Vari-angle LCD monitor

A new 7.7cm (3.0") Vari-angle wide LCD monitor features a 3:2 aspect ratio and a 1,040,000 dot resolution, for added flexibility and to allow photographers to view their images in incredible detail. The Vari-angle wide LCD helps to frame shots from difficult angles, and can be positioned with Live View enabled to achieve the desired composition if shooting isn't possible using the viewfinder. For example, the ability to capture wildlife portraits, overhead shots or ground-level photography is instantly enhanced.

The surface of the LCD screen features an anti-reflective, water-repellent coating to protect the screen – this also allows easy viewing in bright light and from a variety of angles.

Creative functions

A new Basic + function makes it easy for photographers to add their own creative touch to images without worrying about changing settings. Photographers can add ambiance to a scene by shooting according to lighting and scene type, with Portrait, Landscape, Close-Up, Sport, Night Snapshot or Creative AUTO modes all available. Different effects can be achieved by shooting with Basic + enhancements such as Daylight, Cloudy or Sunset or pre-set Picture Styles that include Vivid, Soft, Warm or Monochrome.

The EOS 60D features a host of new functions that help capture better images and in-camera effects to add an extra dimension. The camera's powerful DIGIC 4 processor supports in-camera RAW image processing, allowing photographers to edit settings such as brightness, contrast, and white balance or to correct distortion or chromatic aberration. The edited image can then be re-saved as a JPEG, ready to be printed or uploaded to a computer or the web.

For photographers who want to add post-production effects to their images without the need for expensive software, the EOS 60D incorporates a range of new in-camera creative filters. These filters include Grainy B/W, Soft Focus, Toy Camera Effect and Miniature Effect to provide images with a different feel. This also allows photographers to create a themed collection – for example, using Grainy B/W to give images a reportage style, or to easily smooth skin tone in portraits with Soft Focus.

Designed for flexibility

The EOS 60D has a completely redesigned body, combining an ergonomically enhanced, curved shape with a new button layout to make it quick and comfortable for photographers to change settings. Frequently used camera controls are grouped together for easy access, while the Quick Control Dial, Multi-controller and SET button have all been merged into one Multi Control Dial, enabling photographers to operate menus and enter settings quickly using their thumb. The Mode Dial (on the camera's top plate) also features a lock button, preventing unintentional changes to any settings whilst mid-shoot.

A dedicated Quick Control access button allows photographers to instantly reach the most common shooting settings and playback controls. Customising the functions of a number of buttons is also possible, allowing photographers to tailor the camera to suit their individual needs.

To help achieve landscapes with perfectly level horizons, a single-axis Electronic Level (another useful specification adapted from the EOS 7D) can display roll angles in the viewfinder or in Live View to assist composition and remove any potential need for post-production correction.

The EOS 60D is one of the latest Canon models to support high-capacity SDXC memory cards, providing up to 2TB of available space, allowing photographers to keep shooting HD video and full resolution RAW and JPEG stills without changing cards.

For better management of larger image libraries on the camera, EOS 60D photographers can add a rating of 1 to 5 to their favourite images, allowing them to be easily located and viewed on-screen. Once transferred from the camera to a computer, the tags can also be viewed using a number of image editing and management programs, including Canon's Digital Photo Professional (DPP) software.

EOS Movies: Full HD video with complete control

The EOS 60D captures 1920x1080p Full HD video with a variety of user-selectable frame rates, including 30fps, 25fps and 24fps, as well as 720p video at 60fps and 50fps. Movie Crop mode is also available, recording with the central 640x480 pixel area of the sensor to create an effective magnification of approximately seven times the focal length of the lens.

Full manual control in Movie mode allows photographers to employ their own exposure and focus settings and take advantage of the effects achieved from Canon's wide range of EF lenses. An external stereo microphone terminal and the ability to adjust sound recording level ensures that the audio track recorded matches the visual quality of the video to let you capture broadcast-quality sound.

For those who want to share images with friends and family, an integrated HDMI port is compatible with Consumer Electronics Control (HDMI-CEC), allowing video and images to be viewed on any compatible HD-ready TV and controlled via the TV remote.

Eye-Fi connected functions

For photographers who want to transfer content wirelessly, the EOS 60D includes Eye-Fi connected functions. The EOS 60D features a dedicated Eye-Fi section in the User Interface that allows WiFi functionality to be turned off when not required, thus saving battery life.
