CANON EOS 60D EF 70-200mm L USM Lens

Canon EOS 60D is a digital SLR camera, manufactured by Canon and inroduced in 2010.

Designed to realize your perfect shot, the 60D’s pairing of two state-of-the-art sensor and image processor allows it to capture action at a slick 5.3fps while the shutter speed range of 1/8000 sec ensures that nothing escapes your vision.

The EOS 60D support high-capacity SDXC memory cards, providing up to 2TB of available space, allowing photographers to keep shooting HD video and full resolution RAW and JPEG stills without changing cards. For better management of larger image libraries on the camera, EOS 60D photographers can add a rating of 1 to 5 to their favourite images, allowing them to be easily located and viewed on-screen. Once transferred from the camera to a PC, the tags can also be viewed using a number of image editing and management programs, including Canon’s DPP software.

  • 18.0 megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor
  • 3-inch wide Vari-Angle LCD
  • In-camera post processing
