Canon EOS 60D gets official airing

Canon's first swivel screen DSLR unveiled

New snapper rocks tilting LCD alongside movie editing skills.

After weeks of speculation, the Canon EOS 60D has finally been given the official seal of approval. The new DSR is the peeper purveyor’s first camera to rock a tilting LCD screen and has got the chops when it comes to both stills and video.

Under the hood you’ll find a Digic 4 processor, along with 18 megapixels and in-camera RAW processing. It also packs in a Creative Filters feature for tickling photos on the fly.

The screen can be swivelled and at 3-inches is plenty big enough to see what’s going on while you point the EOS 60D round corners or above crowds. You can also shoot Full HD video, with the chance to edit down your clips on the camera itself.

Best of all, you can resize images on the camera, getting your posh snaps primed for Facebook or Twitter and making your pals efforts, snapped on their mobiles, look naff by comparison.

The Canon EOS 60D is due to land next month, with UK prices yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned for those and more camera news at our Facebook and Twitter pages.
