If this rumor turns out to be true then I think that a lot of people who have been waiting for an announcement will be very happy. Nice catch.

That all makes sense apart from the 36fps for HD video,

24 fps for PAL
30 fps for NTSC

so why the 36, unless there was a typo somewhere in the info chain!

I'll be interesting to see what the launch price is, because there is a huge squeeze at the moment. Current UK prices are (body only):

50d circa £750
7D circa £1250

so a £999 launch price would make vague sense, to keep it below the £1k mark. Much higher and you might as well buy the 7, much lower and it kills off the 50 altogether. Prices based on the UK, but the percentage variables will be roughly the same.

It'll be interesting to see what the upgrades in the AF system are!

Re: Canon 60D 18MPs 6.3fps HD on February 4 Confirmed!

is this some random blog in Spain?

It does not seem plausible that Canon would release a camera at 18MP and so absurdly close to the 7D frame rate. I believe the 60D is imminent, but I don't believe these are the specs for the camera.

EITHER, 18MP and a low frame rate and the old AF, OR 15MP and a high frame rate and (perhaps) a better AF, but probably not the same AF as the 7D.

I agree that 36 fps is a pretty weird spec, it makes the OP's post suspect. OTOH, the 20 fps in the T1i was also strange...

For those non-believers, have in mind the leak was spread by one of the forum's admin with more than eight thousand posts, we should give him some credit I see no reason to post and remove the post some minutes later if it was fake.

We'll find out the validity of this rumor soon enough. Feb. 4 isn't too far away. If it's true, it should be interesting. I hope that Canon will offer some new lens' too.

Well, PAL is 25 fps, film is 24fps.

Perhaps those 24 and 36 are IN ADDITION to the standard 25/50i and 30/60i?

Or they wanted to make it easy: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36 ...

We will see tomorrow

IMHO the specs make sense, apart from the 36 fps which is probably a typo.

My quess it's typo. and PAL is 25fps, so if the rumor is true I'm expecting 24, 25 and 30 (and likely controlle that in PAL setting we get 25 and in NTCS setting selectable 24 and 30).

I'll be interesting to see what the launch price is, because there is a huge squeeze at the moment. Current UK prices are (body only):

50d circa £750
7D circa £1250

so a £999 launch price would make vague sense, to keep it below the £1k mark. Much higher and you might as well buy the 7, much lower and it kills off the 50 altogether. Prices based on the UK, but the percentage variables will be roughly the same.

My quess $1199 body only. Roughly 2/3 of the 7D introduction price; $100 less than 50D initial price. $1099 would already be a nice surprise.
Anyhow, very soon the street price close to $1k / €1k.

It'll be interesting to see what the upgrades in the AF system are!

I'd expect the same or evolution version of what's in 50D.

Any teories on where 60D would be in terms of size and weight?

What will it not have compared to the 7d

What will the 60d NOT have compared to the 7d?

  • Weather sealing (only minor).

  • 18 point auto focus? Should we expect the 50d's to be continued?

  • ?

Odds are, pretty close to the 50D.

It was late- and I was thinking of Flash conversion- mea culpa, but at least it wasn't 6 out!

It will also not (likely) have:

  • dual Digic IV processors

  • electronic leveler

  • built-in flash control

Re: Canon 60D 18MPs 6.3fps HD on February 4 Confirmed!

Even with 18mp 6.3fps, there are quite a lot of others differentiators left between so specified 60D and a 7D.
