I hear the long awaited Casnon 60d is available from today. Anyone know a full list of specifications?

There have been rumours, but that's not unusual.

Maybe just some more hearsay?

I wonder if it will have this new sensor? "Canon develops world's first 120 megapixel APS-H CMOS sensor" (that is going to need a fast onboard processor and a new PC to handle the files! Wink )

Will it have HD video ?

Well folks, the rumours are that it will have the sensor / metering system from the 550D and the processor from the 7D, plus a swivel 1080mb screenGrin

Here is the bomb shell, and its a biggy - ITS IN A PLASTIC BODYTongue

Not sure if this is all true, but if it is, might just hang on to my trust 50D

Is that not just the 550D? I am not convinced there will be a 60D is the canon market big enough to have a camera between the 550D and 7D? Taking 200 off the 7D price would go down better for me Smile

Latest rumours are it press releases 26th of August

yep, my thoughts exactly. You buy a mid range / prosumer model because of the better quality body.

Was surprised when canon brough out the 7d, just seemed to be in competition with itself (550 & 50, or a poor mans 5D)

A full frame, 14 mp, that takes EFS lenses for about 1000 - now that would be flying off the shelvesGrin

The 60D is on the market end of September according to "canonrumors.com"

Supposed to replace the 50D. I would not buy a 550D its too small as well as plastic body and inferior handling to the xxD line IMO.

This company has it listed for 995.00 . Never heard of them though, UK address, but most likely a grey import.

Hmm I think their T&C violate UK distance selling so I will skip on that one. Sounds like a Grey importer
