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
