Introducing the Canon EOS 60D 17-85 IS – the perfect DSLR for creative photographers

Here’s a DSLR that’s sure to make all serious hobbyist photographers with a creative flare salivate and say “I want one!” Canon’s EOS 60D is the replacement for the much loved 50D and we’re pleased to say it’s even better!

The Canon EOS 60D is designed with creative, ambitious photographers in mind. If you like to decorate your walls with poster-sized images from your photographs, the 18 megapixel CMOS sensor that features in this camera will impress, producing excellent images at poster size again and again. The low noise sensor also enables you to crop in on images without losing detail.

You can shoot awkward angles with ease thanks to the 3-inch 3:2 Clear View LCD screen, which has an astonishing clarity thanks to its 1,040,000 dots. It also enables you to check your images and video in detail, while switching to Live mode will let you use the real-time visual feed to help get the best angle for your shots.

And if you like being creative with your shooting, the EOS 60D’s creative filters, which can be applied to RAW or JPEG files after taking your shot, will enable you to experiment to your heart’s content. These filters include Soft Focus and Toy Camera and will really let you go to town with your post-shooting effects.

If you prefer to apply creative touches while shooting, the Basic mode enables you to apply a creative ambience, empowering you to be more imaginative and experimental without needing to have expert photography knowledge.

The EOS 60D contains Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor, which works with the CMOS sensor to deliver 14-bit image processing, for smooth gradations and natural looking colours. It also allows for advanced noise reduction at higher ISO speeds, and delivers a fast image review so you can check your shots in an instant.

Video ability is also great. You can shoot full HD video with full manual control. You can shoot high speed 50/60fps movies at 720P when recording something very fast moving, such as a football game or wildlife in action.

The Canon EOS 60D is just £1179 and comes with free Adobe Photoshop Elements and free Canon custom bag.
