We've just obtained a production-level Canon EOS 60D digital SLR camera, and have posted our first set of test shots, straight from the lab!
The Canon 60D is a replacement for the 2008-model Canon 50D, and incorporates a range of the company's latest SLR technology from models including the EOS 7D and Rebel T2i, as well as providing the debut for a few features unique among EOS digital SLRs. For the first time in an EOS camera, the 60D includes a tilt-swivel LCD display, known in Canon parlance as a Vari-Angle type. The EOS 60D's LCD has a three inch diagonal, 3:2 aspect ratio, and 1.04 million dot resolution. The Canon 60D adopts the company's current 63-zone iFCL metering system, and increases the exposure compensation range to +/- 5EV. The EOS 60D also has an expanded standard ISO sensitivity range of 100 to 6,400 equivalents, while retaining the same expanded upper limit of ISO 12,800 from the EOS 50D. The EOS 60D's movie mode basically mirrors that of the consumer-grade Rebel T2i, but with the addition of 64-level audio gain control as well as a switchable wind cut filter. For more details, read our Hands-on Canon EOS 60D Preview, and visit the Canon 60D Samples page for the test shots we've taken so far, including links to select RAW files. Check back often, as we'll be posting more test shots from the Canon 60D as soon as we can!
