With the DIGIC4 processor, you also benefit from very fast response with a continuous burst speed of 5.3fps as well as features such as creative filters. You can feel confident that the EOS 60D will deliver high image quality time after time as it carries a 9-point cross type AF System and iFCL metering with 63-zone dual-layer sensor.
The new innovation of a 3.0-inch vari-angle LCD gives you the freedom to show from interesting new angles while in Live View mode. When composing in Live View mode or reviewing your images, the 1,040,000 dots ultra-high resolution LCD is sure to give you a clear and realistic display. Of course whilst you can use the 60D in full autopilot, to satisfy your creativity the EOS 60D features full manual control too. You can also shoot high speed 50/60fps movies at 720P for when the action is really fast. An HDMI connection allows High Definition playback of footage and images on any HDTV.
