Canon keeps pushing the amounts of megapixels they can fit into their DSLR cameras. Their latest offering, the Canon EOS 60D, can offer 18 megapixels, a large 3″ LCD screen, full HD video recording and much more. This seems like an interesting camera for people wanting to step up from entry level DSLR cameras. Let us hear what Photography Blog thinks about this Canon DSLR camera.

Some key features for the Canon EOS 60D:
-18 megapixel image sensor
-3″ vari-angle LCD screen
-Full HD video capture
-5.3 frames per second
-9-point all cross-type autofocus AF system
-ISO sensitivity up to 12800
-Uses SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards

Photography Blog ends up giving the Canon EOS 60D a “Highly Recommended” rating with an overall score of 4.5 stars of 5 possible. The Canon camera gets a perfect score on image quality and almost perfect on features, design ease of use and value for your money. The 60D seems like an excellent camera, especially if you are looking for a step up from the EOS 500D DSLR. One would think that all those megapixels crammed into a relatively small image sensor would make the image quality poorer, but this is quite the opposite as the camera is able to produce pictures of very good quality even at high ISO levels. It seems like Canon has made another winner with the 60D.

Several rumour blogs has posted information about the specifications for a new DSLR camera from Canon. The digital camera is supposed to be called Canon EOS 60D and is the successor to the 50D camera.

Here are the rumoured specifications for the Canon EOS 60D:
-15.1 megapixels
-ISO 100-25600
-7 fps
-Digic V
-Movie-mode: 1080p with 30 and 24fps
-Build in GPS for geo-tagging
-Only a SD-card slot (no CF)
-148×109×75mm and 738g

In my opinion the most interesting factors in the Canon EOS 60D is the increased ISO sensitivty and the movie mode. The build in GPS unit would also be a very nice addition. It remains to be seen if these rumours about the Canon EOS 60D have some truth to them.
