Canon EOS 60D (or EOS 7D)

Photography Bay is showing a list of features for the upcoming replacement of the Canon EOS 50D. Already??? Sure, it seems a bit early to start talking about this one. Did I say rumour?

Anyway, here are the (rumoured) features:

  • 15.1MP sensor (no resolution changes, improved IQ?)
  • New 13 Point AF
  • 1080p Movie Mode
  • Continuous shooting: 8 fps
  • 3″ VGA LCD
  • Viewfinder: 98% coverage
  • New battery model
  • Weather-sealing (this one would be really nice)
  • Ergonomic Upgrades
  • Memory slots: 1x Compact Flash & 1x Secure Digital

The more important “information” may be a forecast of the launch date: Fall 2009.

And there is also an intersting tidbit: This camera may be breaking the naming conventions of the Canon EOS line. For sure, this is more rumour than fact: No marketing department would bet on a name as early as that…
