<p><strong>*UPDATE 2*

<span style="font-weight: normal;">Expect to see in camera filters of some kind.</span></strong></p>
<p><strong><span style="font-weight: normal;">A few more new features are also in the camera. Here’s hoping one of them is continuous AF in video mode.</span></strong></p>
<p><strong>*UPDATE*

<span style="font-weight: normal;">The specs are CR3 now, I just wanted to add a couple more things.</span></strong></p>
<ul>
<li><strong><span style="font-weight: normal;">96% VF</span></strong></li>
<li><strong><span style="font-weight: normal;">All 9AF points are crosstype </span></strong></li>
</ul>
<p>There are a couple more new features I’m told. However, the features were vague. There seems to be a language barrier, I’ll keep digging.</p>
<p><strong>Are these the 60D Specs?

<span style="font-weight: normal;">I was told to CR3 this, I’m going to CR2.5 it instead. We’ll know soon if they’re true.</span></strong></p>
<p><strong>Canon EOS 60D Specifications

</strong></p>
<ul>
<li>18 MP. 17.9 effective</li>
<li>APS-C</li>
<li>100-6400 (Hi: 12800)</li>
<li>1/250 flash sync</li>
<li>sdxc/hc</li>
<li>h.264</li>
<li>1080 – 30/25/24</li>
<li>720 – 50/60</li>
<li>3″ Screen, 1MP</li>
<li>14 bit</li>
<li>11 min video</li>
<li>5.3FPS</li>
<li>digic 4</li>
<li>9 AF points</li>
<li>63 zone (metering)</li>
</ul>
<p>The specs came from <a href="http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http://d-spot.co.il/forum/index.php%3Fshowtopic%3D237681&sl=iw&tl=en" target="_self">d-spot</a>.</p>
<p>These are pretty much what we’re reported for the last few weeks. We’ve reported the switch to SD cards previously as well.</p>
<p>The 5.3fps is a new one, as is H.264.</p>
<p>I can already hear the complaints about the 9AF points. We’ll have to wait and see if it’s an updated AF system. At the pricepoint I’ve heard for this camera, I doubt it.</p>
<p>I’m also interested to know if the body is 100% plastic as previously reported.</p>

Would be great if they make IQ with kit lens atleast better than D90. I had bought 50D, repenting now.

11 min video
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?

Re: Canon EOS 60D Specs [CR2.5]

11min might pertain to the H.264 since it's a different format?

And is that a wireless flash transmitter I spy in the pic?

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!

different format? The others use h264 too!

edit/ for video mode I personally (and i think some others too) hope that you can shut off the audio automatic and audio gain

Re: Canon EOS 60D Specs [CR2.5]

Guys, this is the same camera we saw the back side of last week. Notice the articulating screen hinge on the right side, the button on top of mode select dial? My bet is 60D will have an articulating screen!! ;)

Also notice the shape of the prism bump...

Re: Canon EOS 60D Specs [CR2.5]

The Nikon D90 replacement, the D7000, will destroy this camera with it's:
- 100% viewfinder
- dual memory cards
- 6-8fps
- 39 AF points
- mag body
- 25600 ISO

What is canon smoking?

Re: Canon EOS 60D Specs [CR2.5]

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.

More observations, as compared to the 50D (besides the button on the mode dial)...

The scroll wheel above the shutter button looks like it is flush with the top of the camera where the info screen is. the 50D's is slightly recessed. Also, I see only three buttons above the info screen? The 50D has four.
Can't tell if the grip as larger, as speculated recently. There appears to be a bit more bulge to the flash mount area. Also, obviously, the microphone holes.

You can also make out the notches where the hinge for the articulating screen is.

Also there's the "button" in the centre of the mode dial, much akin to the leaked photos.

Looks like the real deal.

So it's really Digic 4 and 5.3fps. Just like I posted few days before.

The good news is: it will be cheap.

WOW what a shit :-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 shit! 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.

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!?
