Another Hot Item to Pre-Order – Canon 60D

click to pre-order Canon EOS 60D from Canon Store - Amazon

Well the Zoom H1 did meet it's release date, but didn't meet the demands of the retailers. Few shipments went out and there's still a ton of people waiting in line for new products to arrive, including me! I got a hold of one, but still waiting on two more Zoom H1's.

Well here's another item guaranteed to sell out quick. Of course we're talking about the new Canon 60D DSLR. You don't think you need it, you think you want it, not sure you want it, doesn't matter it's going to be gone the first week and hard to get a hold of after. When the T2i was released that too was a hard product to find. Well fear not, the official Canon store on is accepting pre-orders. This is not a third party retailer, this is the Canon store on Amazon which I assume they have as a warehouse drop ship partner. Here's the link: Pre-Order Now - Canon EOS 60D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD (Body Only)

I'm my order in already.

Failsafe. If you're unsure, this is what Amazon lists after you purchase it:

Not Yet Shipped: Delivery estimate: We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We'll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date. You can cancel at any time.

  4. Curious if the pre-order price is high? Is it possible the price could drop within a month?

    Anyone who has pre-ordered cameras before may know how this goes. Just curious if the hype keeps the price higher when it is first released.

    I assume that it would. If it didn't people would use the HD video out to record to a capture device.

    When recording, the T2i downgrades to SD for external video monitoring, a huge negative for me. Does anyone know if the 60D has this same issue?

  8. Did anyone catch that they're repositioning this line of camera. Plastic body? It's the same autofocus from the 50D? Not that I think it's a bad deal. Just not something I'm going to trade my 7D in for. I'm a photographer first and foremost.

    Autofocus in video should not be considered amateur. As a professional wedding videographer, it is essential. For my corporate gigs, I can use my 7D with manual focus. However, with the speed of a wedding, autofocus is key

    There is a $200 dollars difference between the T2i and the 60D. With your $200 savings, you could buy a LCD screen to mount on top of a fig rig. (DIY of course!) An articulating screen is cool, especially for low lying shots, but I'm 6'3 and holding the rig down and looking at a 3 inch screen is not going to work. If I were a T2i owner, I wouldn't trade up for anything OTHER than a 5D Mark II. (Full frame)Everything else is close enough. I had been thinking about adding a T2i as a "B" camera, but with the D3100 having the CMOS sensor that Canon uses, being $200 less than a T2i, $400 less than a 60D and $1000 less than the 7D,(Which I have)it only makes sense. As for the gent who talked about people's giddiness about AF during video let's put it this way, it's better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it. LOL

    Keep up the good work!

    I just pre-ordered with your link. I'm returning the t2i I just got last week, The articulating screen is a big deal to me (I'm motre of a video guy). I still have an old Powershot S2 IS, still love the articulating screen on it.

    Seems strange to me as every Film Maker I know uses manual focus so I have no idea in the world how people are are professionals ( maybe they are not ) are complaining about that.

    Second this camera is beefier , looks more professional and has a swivel LCD screen, this alone is worth the price of admission over a t2i. You people also fail to realize that the t2i was/is the less expensive Dslr that we currently have with these manual features.

    This 60d at $1099 is still an incredible deal and I will be selling my t2i for a newer camera. Like I said the swing out lcd is worth the price alone.

    Well, I don't see anything to get excited about with the 60D. The audio, sure, but I'm sure Canon will come out with a firmware update that will allow the 7D and 5D Mark II control over audio volumes also. What they SHOULD have done , is what Nikon has done with the D3100....make auto focus available during video. THAT is something to rave about. (and it's $699 WITH a lens kit.) The only question mark is Nikon's new sensor. After you give it the proper once over, ('cause you always do!) I'll know if it's the one for me. I pass on the 60D.

    Keep up the good work,


    PS Play Pink Cookies again when you review the D3100. LOL

    I was really hoping for full time AF in video. The articulating screen is a nice touch for video though. I guess we will have to wait for the 7D renewal to get full time AF.

    I sold my T2i last week when I bought a 7D, but if I were still a T2i owner, I don't think I would give it up for the 7D. There just isn't enough to justify 300-400 dollars.

    On the plus side for those who haven't bought a DSLR yet, you should be able to get a pretty good deal on a T2i next month when some people sell theirs off to get a 60d.

    The 60D will also take some demand off of the t2i at the retail level, which should mean a t2i price drop in a couple months.
