Canon EIS 60 Mirrorless Camera Arriving Early 2011 – 22 Megapixel

Canon is rumoured to be working on a mirrorless camera for launch early next year. The camera currently being designed and built is said to be the Canon EIS 60 that will be in a micro four thirds size casing and will have a 22 megapixel sensor.

The EIS in the name stands for Electro Image System from what we understand and the CMOS sensor used in the camera has backside illumination similar to what is used in other cameras.

Rumours also indicate that the camera will be capable of capturing full HD video at 1080p with frame rates of 30, 24 and 25. The ISO range is supposedly 100 – 6400.

Other features include an LCD touchscreen as well as a dual SD memory card slot for extra storage space.

Although this camera is just a rumour, it doesn’t surprise us that Canon could be making a micro four thirds mirrorless style camera.

The lenses available for the camera include a 12-75mm f2.8-4.0 IS Macro along with a 75 to 300mm f3.5-5.6 IS. Other lenses include…

5mm F4 fisheye, 8-25mm F4 wide-angle zoom, 14mm F2 pancake, 25mm F1.2 pancake, 45mm F1.5 pancake, and 65mm F2.0 Macro.

We’ll let you know if we hear any more on this one as Canon have some decent DSLR cameras available and it will be interesting to see how they do with the new range of micro four thirds.
