First photos of the rumored Canon 60D

The rumor is that Canon is set to release a new professional DSLR, the Canon EOS 60D, to replace the existing 50D.

The specs that we’ve heard about so far are:

  • 18 megapixels (same as the 7D and Rebel T2i, up from the 50D’s 15.1MP)
  • A flip-out/tilt screen, looks to be 3.0″ I’d say. This looks like Canon’s first DSLR with a flip-out screen, should be great for video. The Nikon D5000 has a flip-out screen already, and the rumored D3100 will likely have one too.
  • Its being called video optimized, I imagine that means better auto-focus capability while recording movies, hopefully to compete with the D3100’s continuous auto-focus while recording!
