Why is this still in the rumours section? The camera has been announced.

They have an announcement thread with all speculation set aside, mate.

umm..apart from the swivel-lcd, what new did they bring to the movie mode..?

They added a fully customizable (right word?) movie mode with volume control, selectable frame rates and all. They put the same level of video in the 60D that appears on the 5D2 along with decreasing the FPS by 1.2 FPS when the T2i took a very small hit to FPS and buffer size while the 60D appears to have tanked in the continuous shooting dept. Also instead of doing something innovative, they add a bunch of kiddie toys like filters. Also I think the AF has been downgraded, I was lead to believe the 50D has all cross-type AF sensors while the 60D doesn't, correct me if I'm wrong though. They put more effort into the T2i than they did the 60D in terms of still images.

It does use cross-type AF points at f-stops f/5.6 and higher. I'm wondering if the 60D cross-type AF points will be sensitive to f/2.8. If not, it appears that the AF is almost identical to the 50D on paper.

Probably not. I think they're going to stay sensitive at 5.6 with the center one being 2.8. Less cross-type though, closer AF to the Rebel series than the 50D from what I read.

The 60D is the feature-flamboyant dSLR camera body I never wanted to see Canon release.

Why would you think the AF would be worse than the 50D? It is the same AF as the 40D/50D - All f5.6 Cross type sensors and the middle sensor has an extra X type f2.8 high precision sensor.

That was my observation as well. I had forgotten that those were the same AF specs as the 40D though.

...

What upgrades were there from the 40D to 50D then besides a new LCD rear display (with higher resolution) and LV enhancements?

15mp
better LCD
ISO 6400 + 12800 options
AF Micro Adjustment

And that is about it. The 50D had almost as many complaints as this 60D because it wasn't enough of an upgrade to most.

I remember reading somewhere it had fewer cross-type points, might have been back when everything was still a rumor.

At least performance-wise nothing was really worse than the 40D. There are already people calling it the high point of the XXD line, the 60D isn't as much of an upgrade to the 50D as it is a new line in spirit. To be honest, it would be fine if Canon marketed it as a new line but calling it an upgrade to the 50D feels just wrong, really nothing else to call it though since Canon would never give it a single digit name.

I feel the 60d is a cross-grade from the 50d. It's better in some regards, same in some more and worse in others. Since the 50D will be cheaper than the 60D, I know what I would recommend. Save your money and buy a lens haha

The AF system is exactly the same as on the 50d, no change here.
The rebel series only has one cross-type sensor.

Aesthetically speaking, the 60D has to be one of ugliest dSLRs I have ever seen.

agreed.

Actually (and honestly speaking here) forget buying new.... NEVER pay a premium for tech because it's a new release. Buy refurb and spill the extra cash all into lenses.... heck, buy a refurb or used 40D and spend the rest on lenses. That's the way it SHOULD be done :cool:

I remember reading something that made the AF system sound closer, not the same as, but closer to the Rebel than the 50D, my bad if I'm wrong though. It seems like Canon felt the 50D was too close to the 7D for some inexplicable reason.
