Canon 60d unavailable on BH and Adorama
« on: December 28, 2011, 05:15:55 AM »
I just noticed that both BH and Adorama list the 60d as out of stock ? What can this mean?

The economy's getting better?

On an 18-month update schedule, it's up renewal right now though, so we might see something at CES/PMA in a month.
Or it was just a better xmas season than they planned for...

It could well be just a combination of a good selling Christmas and a manufacturing shortage due to the tsunamis and earthquakes. However, the timing is a bit weird, on schedule a replacement should be announced in about three weeks.

Dr croubie: The XXD series seems to be announced every 2 years in August, the 50d 8/2008 the 60d 8/2010
So the next one should be 8/2012 ?? (I got the announcement dates from dpreview)

I think Canon will use a new sensor (not the same 18MP anymore) in the 70D which would mean that they will want to announce the 7DII first with that new sensor, around Photokina. Assuming the 7DII and the 70D will have the same sensor of course, like the current 7D & 60D.

That theyre out of stock.....due to parts issues and also popularity. we have hardly had them on our shelves as people see them as being worth the little extra for a better camera... That sit on the shelf for a couple hours at most till they get bought. We sell them at full price as theyre in such high demand.

70D!

Nah, I'm just kiddin'.
They will update the 7D before the 60D I would think. They had are hard enough time squeezing the 60D between the 7D and the T2i. It's time to raise the ceiling and then they can update the other guys. And perhaps return the xxD line to its former glory. Or maybe not.

As an FYI, the 60D has been discontinued in the computer system for HHGregg, where I work part-time.  And I did a search and evidently it also was discontinued in the Best Buy system as well.  So maybe the 70D will soon be announced.  Seems kinda early if you ask me. 
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

*buys*

I wish, no cash. I think now that the '1DX shock' has settled a bit, there's less and less people who want to stock up on 1D4s while they can, there's still some, but it's pretty much birders with 500/600/800mm lenses and teleconverters who care that much, seems most people have been won over the the 1dx (yes, including me, but I'd still buy a 1D4 as a 7D replacement if i could).

My favourite Dutch shop is also out of 60Ds (geen-voorraad means not for sale, in bestelling means on backorder), they also have 1D4 in stock at all shops. Digitalrev.com also has 1D4 and 60D (all kits) in stock...

Canon has been having some really big year end discounts on cameras, trying to pull up their sales figures for the year end.  Prices will go back up now that the year end has passed, and bodies will either be restocked, or a repacement will appear.  The 60D is a extremely good seller, so a replacement may be a ways out.

From information i received from Canon (through a 3rd party), the 60D's production was affected by the Thailand floods. The camera is assembled in Japan, but some stuff inside the camera was of Thai origin.
