The good news is: it will be cheap.
It needs to be or it will be in a whole world of hurt with those specs.

WOW what a S___ :-X

They screwed up big big time. I mean what the hell they seriously brought a bad 7D!
What the hell is this?! Who needs this S___! So that's what I was waitng for 2 years now. Now I still have to buy the 7D again. OMG I am so mad at Canon.
I could kill them for the SD cards.

So I was really right, the only thing they brought was the shitty flip screen.
Go to hell Canon.

Sounds unrealistic because 5D, 7D and 550D can all record 30min.
...or does Canon set up the data rate so that the 60D will reach the 4GB limit after 11min?
No, it's not true.
The 5D2, 7D and 550D has a 4 GB size limit, not a time limit.
Even if you record black video the file size will reach the 4 GB  limit less than 20 minutes...

If it need to be, that it will be. When was the last time that you saw Canon position and price something poorly?

I guess $200 more than 550D.

Looks like Canon marketing are working hard to cripple this machine in every way they can. I still think there isn't a need for this. 7D is a great camera that doesn't need a little brother.

IF (always a big IF) these specs are correct, how would the 60D stack up against the 7D....the decision facing me!?

I think what's more interesting is what's not written ... for example, we're all expecting it to have an articulating screen but that isn't mentioned.
That IS mentioned in the original Hebrew post!

Ah, so CR-guy messed up.

Burn. All I can say is don't judge a camera till you see the IQ. If it matches the 7D and comes in at less then you get what you want right? You waited for 2 years for a reason. And if at the end of the day you decide the 7D suits you better, then you will still be happy with it.

My thing is that Nikon lenses are starting to really impress me. D700 successor and the 28-300 and 85 1.4 and 14-24 would make a killer kit.

WOW what a S___ :-X

$200 more than the 550D is too expensive, the Nikon D7000 will be right about that price and it's specs are far superior.

With those kind of specs, the 60D is already dead in the cradle even before it gets released. Just look at Sony's A55 and the upcoming Nikon D7000.

Canon has really lost it this time.

Not completely.

The Sony cameras are not providing the same variety in video recording speeds - they're only doing 1080/30.

If you are serious about using the camera for video, you will not buy the Sony one - will have to wait and see what Nikon offers.

The Sony/Nikon will also both be 16MP and the Canon 18MP (queue the chorus of screams about how people would rather ISO 25600 than an extra 2 MP.)

Well Justin,

I knew it can't be as good as the 7D but we already have a camera "worse" than the 7D and that's the 550D.
So what the hell is this 60D Supposed to be?! Who needs this crap, it's a crippled mix of a 7D and a 550D, not good for anything. If it were at least good for video (autofocus thing) or lowligt, or just SOMETHING! But this is useless!!
And who the fu... needs SD cards!!! I mean seriously, they did everything, to destroy the xxD! Why the hell would I spend an extra 300-400$ on a camera that is just slightly bigger than the 550D and has a Flipscreen?!?! That's insane.

Die Canon.

Die Canon.

There are plenty of people that will argue that the flipscreen increases the usability of the camera in otherwise awkward situations, be it for video or stills photography. For them the extra money will be well spent because it is something that neither the 5D2, 550D or 7D offer. In this regard, the Sony A55 can compete but as I mentioned in another reply, it has crippled video when compared to what Canon offers - and Canon offers more MP.

Things are gonna get expensive, looks like I'll need to get a D7000 for mid range needs, a A55 for my consumer/travel needs, keep my 5dmk2 for my professional needs, and a evil or some sort, most likely the next nikon :o
