CANON ANNOUNCES THE EOS 60D, WITH FLIP SCREEN
In our current issue Roberto Quezada-Dardon writes about the upsurge in HDSLR activity from manufacturers and accessories makers. Now, the new releases are coming fast and furious. Via Engadget, Canon has announced the EOS 60D. And it’s got a flip-out screen. From the site:
Well, what do we have here? Last we heard about the Canon EOS 60D it was just a twinkle in our articulating screen of a peripheral vision. And now it’s official — my, how times have changed. Here’s what we know about the 50D successor (with definite nods to the Rebel T2i’s feature set): the 18-megapixel DSLR has a single DIGIC 4 processor and boasts 1080p H.264 video with an in-camera movie editing feature, manual audio level control, a “flexible” (read: articulating) 3-inch LCD screen, an ISO range of 100-6,400 purported to be expandable to 12,800, and support for processing RAW images from within the camera itself. Look for the little photo shooter to hit retail at the end of September for just a dollar under $1,100 body only, or $1,400 with a bundled 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens.
