Are you in the market for a new DSLR, but am not quite sure on which model to purchase? Well, the new Canon EOS 60D DSLR might just fit the bill, considering it will be able to deliver high-quality digital capture as well as skillful post-processing that will deliver superior end results, not to mention better control over in-camera image processing which translates to less time editing and more time shooting. Apart from that, Full HD video recording capability is also thrown into the mix, with manual audio level control and flexible LCD displays adding to the EOS 60D’s desirability.
One of the things that make the EOS 60D DSLR special would be the inclusion of a three-inch Vari-Angle Clear View LCD display, Creative Filters for easy image manipulation, Full HD video recording with manual overrides, and in-camera functionality for RAW image processing. Meant for advanced amateurs, those who are just starting out in the world of digital photography might want to consider other models such as a Micro Four Thirds camera. Meant to take over where the EOS 50D left off, its large Vari-Angle LCD display boasts anti-reflective and smudge-resistant coatings, making it ideal for composing low-angle or overhead shots without missing a beat.
It’s new Multi-Control Dial also sees a Multi-Controller and Set button located within the Quick Control Dial, helping to streamline camera navigation for vertical as well as horizontal shooting while obtaining a cleaner camera design simultaneously. Canon also heard their customers, and will introduce a locking mode dial that makes camera operation a whole lot more secure as it prevents inadvertent changes to the photographer’s selected shooting mode. Among the other in-camera RAW image processing features include Picture Style, White Balance (WB), Color Space, High-ISO Noise Reduction, Peripheral Illumination Correction, linear distortion correction and chromatic aberration correction. There is also a new Aspect Ratio feature that lets the Live View screen can display cropping lines for 1:1, 16:9 or 4:3
aspect ratios, apart from the regular 3:2 ratio. These cropping lines do tremendously help one to compose images in Live View. Expected to hit the US at the end of September, it will cost $1,099 for a body-only configuration, while a kit version with Canon’s EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens will cost you $1,399.
