Articulating Screens on New Canon DSLRs

Canon doesn’t seem to want Nikon to have all the fun with articulating LCD screens. After Nikon included such a screen on D5000 back in April of 2009, Canon seems to be ready to embrace the feature in its own DSLRs.

According to a member of Israeli forum d-spot.co.il, Canon’s next prosumer and entry level DSLRs, the 60D and 550D/600D, will both have articulating screens and begin shipping in May. If you’re not sure what an articulating screen is, here’s what it looks like on the Nikon D5000:

Here’s a full list of specs that were posted:

60D Specs
– Articulating screen
– Metal body, similar To 50D
– Upgraded 15.1mp APS-C Sensor
– 720p/1080p Video at 30fps
– Electronic Level

– Price about $1190

550D/600D Specs
– Articulating screen
– Body smaller than 500D
– Upgraded 15.1mp APS-C Sensor
– 720p Video at 30fps

Do the specs seem realistic? What are your thoughts on the possibility of articulating screens being introduced into the Canon line?
