Rumors are a two-edged sword – it whets your appetite of what’s upcoming, and yet could land a blow to your stomach if nothing turns out right. The Canon EIS 60 could very well be true though, since it is Canon’s first mirrorless camera with the EIS acronym standing for “Electro Image System” (compared to “Electro-Optical System” for Canon’s EOS SLR-format film and digital cameras). It seems that this puppy will come with a 22-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor which measures 18mm x 12mm. It is also tipped to shoot video in 1920 x 1080 resolution at 30p/25p/24p, while said rumor also carries a sensitivity range of ISO 100-6400 native, with expansion to ISO 12800 and ISO 25600. Dual SD memory card slots might just be in vogue next up, since storage support does point towards that direction as well. Canon might even roll out an EF-to-EIS adapter that will enable EF lenses to be used on EIS cameras with autofocus support. Hopefully something concrete comes out soon to put to bed all these rumors.
