Feb 8 Canon event may have video SLRs, camcorders
Canon today sent word that it will have a special event in the UK on February 8th for new cameras. The company hints that it will be "at the movies" and is holding the event at the British Academy for Film and Television Arts' (BAFTA) offices in London. It's nonetheless careful not to lean towards a specific category of product and says it simply touches on "consumer imaging," not necessarily camcorders.
A number of possible clues have emerged as to the nature of what might appear. Video-capable DSLRs are a distinct possibility and could include the EOS 60D, an upgrade to Canon's mid-range camera that may add a swiveling screen, video and some features inherited from the 7D. The Rebel T2i is also a possibility and could harbor the first significant physical redesign of Canon's entry-level DSLR in years. [via Pocket-lint]
