It you look closely at the second shot you will see he is recording or taking a shot of a airplane and you can see some of the on screen displays.  I had to crop it and reduce quality to fit under the max attachment size.

...for a lower MP APS-C camera, maybe offering 2x18MP and one, say, 12-14MP bodies would better cover the customers' needs. Personally, I would love to have a lower MP APS-C body to complement my 5DII in replacement of my old 300D (yes, I still use, though not much, the original Rebel!).

I don't see any advantage in having a lower pixel count.
Not noise wise, not dynamic range wise and obviously not detail wise.
If it's the file sizes, why not use mRAW?
Some guys even say the 7D produces 10MP mRAWs that look better than any 12 or 14MP DSLR.

I strongly believe that this is the 60D taken with the TBA 1DsIV ;-)

Fun stuff...are there any guesses as to when we will have the "official" announcement?

I like the roundness of it. Looks solid.
The button on the left dial is interesting but the placement of the off-on switch seems weird...

Looks like a mini 7D. Not that I'm going to buy one, but I like it.

Seems like Canon wants to stick with the main power switch under the mode dial on APS-C cameras like introduced with the 7D. To be honest, I think that's a totally stupid place. Every single digital Canon camera I owned so far could be conveniently switched on and off either with the thumb or the index finger of the right hand, while holding the camera in the same way while shooting. With the power switch on the "new position" you definitely need your left hand for switching on and off. To me, that's a step-down in ergonomics.

I was hoping Canon might do the same with the 60D. After all, 2x18MP APS-C cameras are already available from Canon, therefore diversifying its commercial offer could have proven a successful move.

I do think that having the highest pixel-count in the APS-C market actually is a very successful move (from an economic perspective).

By the way, lower pixel count does not mean lower noise.
Most people compare noise levels at 100% view which does not reflect reality - it's the whole image that counts.
After all, the amount of light that hits the sensor is only depending on total sensor surface area (excluding microlens gaps of course) and not on pixel size.

Wrong. This idea doesn't take into account the inherent noise in the technology.

  http://www.clarkvision.com/imagedetail/does.pixel.size.matter/#Depth_of_Field_Myth

People like to point to photos that show the 7D doing just fine, BUT that is in well lit scenes.  When the light begins to drop -- when some of us photographers like to shoot or are forced to shoot -- the 7D's small pixels are a problem. There is no substitute for larger pixels, period, if you are looking for better dynamic range and reduced noise.  In the link above he explores the ideal pixel size (too few hurts images and too small hurts).  The 7D and 50D crossed the line for the APS-C.  I think a 13-14 megapixel APS-C is the sweet spot.  Nikon, if the rumors are true, is being dragged into this pixel war that is not helping us folks.

I noticed that too. Also, I never thought about how much "real estate" you lose with the articulating screen, but it's really apparent in the pictures. Not sure how I feel about that.

I for one like the new look especially the change of the power switch. I hate where it is located on the 50D, drives me nuts. I find the Canon way of arranging buttons very frustrating since I moved over from Nikon and have thought hard about going back. This though looks like it might have merit and worth staying.

Dont get me wrong I love the 50D in many ways and tossing up buying a second one. It's a fantastic camera, but yeah I am glad to see the change in button placements. Took me like 5 min to learn all the functions on my old Nikon system after a year with Canon thee are still things I have to search for.

The body seems smaller something I am not sure if I am fond of. I for one like a hefty body, they always feel more rugged to me, I am exited though to see the tilt screen this can come in real handy I think. I cant wait to see the full specs so I can decide on buying another 50D or a 60D.

Hmm... I would have preferred a Sony style vertical hinge than the side hinge myself, but this is looking interesting... the biggest question I have is: how much? Since it looks like it is a step down in target overall, then I hope the pricing goes that way too.

Well, that's not so good if true.  AF point selection would problematic (less so assuming it maintains the 9-point AF, but it still means pressing a button then spinning the quick dial rather than just a one-step operation).  Also, what about image review with magnification?  How would one move about the magnified image? 

But I don't think it's missing, just redesigned.  Look closely at the 3rd image, between the Menu and Info buttons - that seems to be the joystick, just smaller and square, instead of bigger and round.
