Nobody is surprised that no camera manufacturers seem to be able to keep a secret these days. Canon EOS 60D rumors have been floating around for quite a while and now it has finally become official.

There is no ground-breaking features but the key ones are here:

  • 18MP APS-C sized CMOS sensor
  • ISO range 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800)
  • 5.3 fps continuous shooting
  • 1080p HD video recording with manual controls
  • Supports SD, SDHC, and SDXC storage
  • In-camera raw development
  • Subject modes with ‘Ambience Selection’ (Standard, Vivid, Soft, Warm, Intense, Cool, Brighter, Darker and Monochrome)
  • In-camera Creative Filters (special effects)
  • Articulated high resolution 3.0″ screen (3:2 aspect ratio)

Instead of magnesium alloy body of its predecessor, the new Canon EOS 60D has a plastic (polycarbonate resin with glass fibre) body on aluminum chassis. The look and the controls are now more Rebel-like. The reviewers at DPReview think this is a repositioned product, rather than an upgrade from 50D.
