A Revolutionary DSLR That Expands What Photography Enthusiasts Can Do With Their Image Making
Amazing Image Quality
Canon has done it again. The new Canon EOS 60D DSLR puts an incredibly
sophisticated image making tool with features that are usually only seen in professional caliber DSLR in the hands of the photo hobbyist looking to expand on their technique and image creating qualities. The advanced features and on board camera technologies of the 60D create limitless
creative possibilities and amazing image clarity for any photographer. With this
camera, you can’t help but become a better photographer.
Amazing Image Quality at Your Finger Tips
Canon has made significant strides in improving the digital quality of
your images with the Canon EOS 60D. Canon has included an improved 18 Megapixel APS-C
sized CMOS sensor. This Advanced Photo System sensor captures a superior level
of high resolution which allows the photographer to produce large images without
fear of decreasing their detail. Also, this sensor ensures that noise will not be a
factor in even the most sensitive shots. While megapixels are often overrated and given way too much weight when it comes to creating your final image, the 60D provides all of the image processing power to fully take advantage of all of those 18 megapixels. No matter how big your images are, they will be crisp and full of detail.
In addition to the improved sensor, the 60D also features an improved DIGIC
4 Image Processor which allows the 60D to capture, process and save images with
incredible speed. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor is definitely put to the test when
working with images shot in amazingly detailed 18.0 megapixels at a speed of 5.3
frames per second (fps). This will assure perfect color and the finest details to stand
out in your images. Also, Canon has included improved ISO range from 100 to
6400 (which is ultimately expandable to a jaw dropping 12800) so you can shoot
with confidence in even the dimmest of lighting situations. What all of this comes
down to is a camera that is fully capable of handling any lighting obstacles that you
throw at it; whether you are trying to capture scenes with high shutter speeds and
don’t want to use a flash with barely noticeable noise and blur or bright sunlit
objects with long exposures - you can definitely do it all.
Easy Control of Sophisticated Features
The Canon 60D also has a new Multi-control dial to easily access menus and
settings quickly. Some of the more powerful settings that you will find useful are:
1. The Intelligent Scene Analysis - the 60D utilizes a very sophisticated
system to enhance the 9-point autofocus system. In addition to the 9-points of
autofocus, the 60D breaks the rest of the image into 63 zones controlled by a dual layer sensor. This feature allows the camera to more accurately analyze both the
surrounding color and luminosity of the field within the chosen autofocus points and deliver extremely high level of results in tough lighting situations.
2. High Speed X-Sync - the camera will deliver the fastest shutter
speed that can be synchronized with a flash burst as the shutter is completely
3. Advanced High Definition Video - The 60D takes a giant step
forward in HD technology for a DSLR. Utilizing the features from their professional
level of DSLRs, the 60D allows the photographer to manually control the exposure
of video for advanced creative decisions. The video control takes advantage of the
interchangeable lenses including Fisheye and Macro to provide an amazing array of
video shooting options. The upshot is High Definition video that will leave it’s
impression on the viewer for its gorgeous manipulation of depth-of-field.
Video can be recorded in a variety of resolutions and frame rates
depending on your desired requirements. The 50D can record video in Full High
Definition 1920x1080 at 30, 24, and 25 fps in clips up to 4 GB. The video
recordings are saved as MOV files and can be watched as full HD video with the
cameras HDMI output. In addition to the Full HD option, the other video
resolutions include 1280x720 with the option of 50 to 60 fps or standard definition
(SD/VGA) at 640x480 (also 50-60 fps).
4. In-Camera Processing Technology - the 60D allows the
photographer in the field to shoot images as RAW files and then process them all
within the camera without having to use a computer. The In-camera processing
options include adjustments for brightness, white balance, Picture Style, Auto
Lighting Optimizer, noise reductions, JPEG image-recording quality, color space,
lens peripheral illumination correction, distortion correction, and chromatic
Those features alone are probably enough for even the most demanding
photography professional. It would seem that Canon has left no stone unturned in
terms of a feature rich DSLR.
Introducing the Vari-Angle LCD Monitor
To aid in fully taking advantage of the in-camera processing power of the EOS
60D, Canon has also provided a powerful Vari-angle 3.0-inch Clear View LCD
monitor that is capable of 1,040, 000 pixels that allow the photographer extremely
realistic detail. The monitor is made from the highest quality of materials. The
screen includes smudge proof, anti-reflective, and water repellant coatings.
Another plus for the monitor is that hit offers both low or high-angle adjustment for
viewing of images. The improved viewfinder utilizes numerous creative options
and filters and an HDMI output to view pictures or video on an HDTV.
Speed Speed Speed and More Speed
Tired of missing shots because of delayed start-up times? The 60D will fire
up within 0.1 seconds - fast enough to catch just about any spur of the moment
photo opportunity. The autofocus capabilities react with equal speed and very little
shutter lag. Being able to capture images at 5.3 frames per second, the 60D is able
to record bursts of up to 58 large jpeg files. Never again feel that you are missing
the action because of sluggish response time of your camera.
The Canon EOS 60D puts is a feature rich DSLR which any professional
photographer would be hard pressed to find fault with. It is definitely a must have
camera for anyone looking to take a big step forward in their photographic abilities.
