Event leaks allude to EOS 60D on July 13

Canon's very frequently rumored EOS 60D could at last launch this week if mounting evidence is currect. An entry on creativeLIVE's calendar for August 25 refers to a "special epic event" whose details will be made public on July 13, a date that has surfaced twice before while being connected to the new mid-range DSLR. The date is far from confirmed but would both be consistent with suspicions of a summer release and would make sense with the run-up to the Photokina expo on September 21.

The most consistent rumors surrounding the 60D have implied that it would be a major upgrade to not just the now two-year-old 50D but the Canon line as a whole. It would have the 18-megapixel sensor, DIGIC IV processor and 1080p video recording of the EOS 7D, as well as its support for wireless flash sync, but would be the first Canon DSLR in recent memory with an articulating screen and a new, mystery feature that hasn't been seen before.

It would sit somewhat in between in other areas, with nine-point AF and five crosstype sensors, a slightly slower six frames per second of continuous shooting, and a viewfinder with 98 percent coverage. Like the 50D, it would be weather sealed against rain and dust. [via Canon Rumors]

    weather and dust

    I'm a long time Canon user, and so I follow the announcements closely.

    I've got to say, therefor, that information given here is incorrect. While I don't know when the new model will come out, I can say that if it is sealed the same as the 50D is, it is NOT sealed against weather and dust. Like other cameras in it's class, it has a bit of sealing here and there, but certainly not enough to be said to be "sealed". Only the pro level cameras are really sealed, and they cost dearly. This is a prosumer model.

    EOS 60D Release

    As many rumors exist, regarding the release of the EOS 60D, i believe it will come out late September or early October as the earliest, while alot of negativity has been surrounded regarding the EOS 60D, i like to look at both sides of the coin before i toss it, budget wise, and entry leveled prosumer models, the EOS 60D WITH the 18-135mm EF IS Lens, for $1399USD, to me is a good bang for the buck, i happened to come across and it peaked my interest, for many state the 7D is a better option, many forget the 60D with the lens kit, sets you back only $1399, yet the 7D with a lens kit will set you back over $2,000, you do the math, and its a simple choice to make, for me the EOS60D is a good upgrade over my 50D!
