The EOS 60D combines an approximately 18.0 million effective pixel APS-C size (22.3 x 14.9 mm) CMOS sensor with Canon’s proprietary high-performance DIGIC 4 imaging processor to deliver high image quality with reduced noise. The camera supports an extended ISO range* of 100-6400, which can be expanded to ISO 12800. Additionally, the model enables high-quality image capture through such enhancements in basic features as a 9-point all cross-type AF (autofocus) sensor, which enables high-precision auto focus performance, and Canon’s 63-zone Dual-layer Metering Sensor, which delivers accurate exposure control.
The first model in the EOS series to incorporate a 3.0-inch 1.04-million dot Vari-Angle Clear View LCD monitor with a 3:2 aspect ratio, the new Canon EOS 60D allows users to easily view the monitor while shooting at high or low angles, all while maintaining a compact body that is smaller than its predecessor, the EOS 50D, launched in September 2008. Further contributing to enhanced operability, the previously separate Multi-Controller and Quick Control Dial have now been combined to form a Multi-Control Dial, while the Quick Setting Button, which opens on the LCD monitor when pressed, enables users to effortlessly change such camera settings as shutter speed, aperture, ISO setting, and exposure from a single screen.
The EOS 60D’s Basic + Function feature enables the adjustment of an image’s “atmosphere” by allowing users to apply such settings as “light and soft” or “sharp and vivid.” In addition, the newly incorporated Creative Filter function enables the processing of photos using one of four filter options, including Miniature Effect and Soft Focus.
The Canon EOS 60D also enables the capture of high-quality, low-noise video, offering a selection of different recording sizes, frame rates and interchangeable lens combinations to realize rich movie capture across a range of shooting conditions.
