State of the art digital single lens reflex (SLR) technology is
now within reach: the Canon EOS D60 is our latest addition
to the EOS range. It features an amazing 6.3 megapixel CMOS
sensor, guaranteeing superb image quality. Before starting the
actual design process of the EOS D60 we spoke to professional
and advanced users of Canon’s first digital SLR, the EOS D30.
After listening to their ideas and suggestions, key features of
the EOS D30 like the continuous shooting speed of approx.
3 fps and the maximum burst of 8 shots have been maintained
in the EOS D60. The new superimposed LED display for
AF functions and the illumination of the LCD panel are but a
few of the other user suggested features that we incorporated
into the EOS D60. The final result is a camera that represents
the ultimate in high-end digital photography.
