Canon 60D Preview

Here is a preview of the just announced Canon 60D DSLR body. Expect a lot more Canon reviews, unboxing and Sniff tests as we move forward,

Here are the specs on this just announced camera with my thoughts. To get your name on the list to own one please call Allen @ Allen’s Camera 215.547.2841 Tell them the fro sent you.

18 MP APS-C CMOS sensor
Nice Sensor, will give you some pretty good Hi-ISO performance and solid video.

Advanced creative features with Basic +
I am not a fan of in camera corrections or editing, why edit on a 3 inch screen when you have something better at home.

Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 ratio LCD
Cool idea, but not very practical for shooting photos, good for low or high angle video shooting.

Full HD movies with manual control
Great feature to have all the different HD frame rates as well as audio mic input for better quality.

Same processor as other canon cameras

ISO 100-6400, H:12800
Huge range, quality probably falls apart around 3200 will have to test one out to see.

5.3fps shooting for up to 58 JPEGs
Would like to know how many RAW frames you can bugger opposed to Jpeg

9-point cross type AF System
A major FAIL as this is an old AF system that was in the 50d.

iFCL metering with 63-zone Dual-layer Sensor
New metering system this is a good thing

Integrated Speedlite transmitter
This is something the nikons have done for a while

In-camera RAW processing
A joke, do not edit your raw files in the camera!!!!
