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.
