EOS 60D Coming August 26 [CR3]

Where are the SLR’s?
The embargo on the 60D doesn’t end until August 26, 2010. So that’ll be next Thursday.

No word on what else will be announced with it.

Expect at least 2 lenses.

1Ds Mark IV
I’ve heard nothing about an announcement date for the camera, only that it’ll be around for Photokina.

Big White Lenses
A few people are saying all 4 of the big whites are being replaced. This may be true, but I still believe they’ll be updated in pairs.

EOS 60D Notes [CR2]

A few things about the 60D
- I’m told that the 60D will NOT be a magnesium body. This would definitely separate it from the 7D.
- The body of the 60D is also slightly smaller than the 50D, but will have a larger grip area.
- The camera will cost $200-$300 more than the T2i

An all plastic body puts it inline to compete with the Nikon D90 segment directly. Though I’ve read rumors the D90 replacement WILL have a magnesium body.

CR2 stuff here.

Canon EOS 60D Pictures?

EOS 60D, Note the Articulating Screen

Looks like the pictures styles button is gone.

Forum Idea to focus on the LCD

I think it’s safe to say these images are real.

A Few 60D Specs [CR2]

A Couple of Specs
Received word today of someone seeing a presentation of a pre-production 60D. The entire spec list was not released to the folks being presented to.

Specs:
18mp (Exact same as the 7D & T2i)
Tilt Screen (No word on size)
“Video Optimized” (I’m going to assume better AF when filming)

More soon.

50D & SX1 Replacements Next Week?

…. A Canon rep said
The August 11 announcement date is brought up again. This time from a Canon Rep in the southern hemisphere.

“The 50D and SX1 replacements will be announced next week.”

S90
A few more confirmations of the S90 not appearing on new pricing lists in a few countries.

Lenses
No lenses mentioned for next week yet. This makes me think there will be 2 rounds of announcements.

1Ds Mark IV & More [CR1]

1Ds Mark IV
Stephen Alvarez (NG Photographer) posted a tidbit of information on his blog.  4-5 people sent this link in, so I’ll pass it onto the rest.

“A friend told me that there are some Canon 1ds MK IV test models floating around.”

http://www.picturestoryblog.com/2010/08/canon-1ds-mk-iv.html

Nothing extraordinary.

S90
I was just told the S90 has officially reached EOL (End of Life).

August 30/31
I received info that this is a timeframe that a new DSLR would be announced. I wasn’t told which model. Just that it would be as revolutionary as the 5D Mark II was. I was promised better information from this person in the next couple of weeks.

DXO Pulls 60D Info

There we have it
I was getting worried because the 60D info was still on the DXO site last night.

However, it’s gone now.

I still receive emails that there will be “no 60D”, it’s safe to say this confirms those emails incorrect and we should see 60D’s starting to ship in late September or into October.

DXO Gives Away 60D?

60D Confirmation?

From DXO
This may quiet the folks that keep mailing cr that there will be “no 60D”.

I checked the site hard to make sure there was no way for people to add this info, as has happened with previous DXo “leaks”.

There isn’t a D30 or 10D on this list either, so I will say it isn’t a D60 typo that can be common.

60D Flip Screen Saga [CR2]

Yes or no?
A very good source has come out and said the 60D is just “around the corner” and will feature a flip LCD.

This was the only spec given at this time.
