Module maker hints Canon 60D due soon

Optics module creator DxO may have given away Canon's plans for an EOS 60D through a schedule of when it intends to support certain cameras. As of Thursday, many references pointed to modules supporting the 60D and Canon's range of lenses in either November or December. Other cameras are listed the same way, but the 60D is the only pre-release model and is shown alongside the existing 50D, indicating it's not a simple mistake.

A chance remains that the references are speculative, but this isn't considered as likely. The timeframe isn't a fixed window for the camera, and it's probable the 60D will ship soon enough in advance that DxO can check its modules with Canon's work.

The camera producer missed its first possible launch window earlier this month, but an EOS 60D release is still considered probable; the 50D is the last Canon DSLR to go without a revision, and the Photokina expo on September 21 is expected to have a number of DSLR updates from major competitors. The 60D so far is rumored to have an 18-megapixel camera and 1080p video with a swiveling screen as its distinguishing feature. [via Canon Rumors]
