Canon EOS 60D DSLR camera: HD video recording sampled

Cameras, Tech Digest news

Canon’s EOS 60D continues the company’s fine tradition of throwing in top-notch HD video recording smarts into their DSLRs as well as high-spec still image processing.

Capable of full HD video capture (1920x1080p), the EOS 60D lets its user choose from a range of frame rates, including 24, 25 and 30 frames per second. Drop the resolution down to 720p and you can push that up to 50fps or even a silky smooth 60 frames per second.

A movie crop mode is also included, using just the central 640×480 pixel area of the imaging sensor. You’ll also be able to manually tweak a range of exposure and focus settings when paired with the camera’s many additional lenses.

In terms of audio quality for your videos, Canon claim the E0S 60D will rival “broadcast-quality sound”. It features an external stereo microphone with settings to tweak the volume of the recorded sound.

A HDMI out port is also squeezed into the camera’s body, allowing for big-screen playback of your videos. HDMI-CEC enabled, you’ll be able to control the action with the remote control with compatible TV sets.

If you’re after a taste of what the Canon EOS 60D is capable of when it comes to HD recording, check the YouTube clip above, and make sure you set the resolution to 1080p.
