Won't work with Yosemite 10.10!

By RGH from Boone, NC on 09/03/2015

I love this camera except for one thing. We now run an all-MAC household - all the computers are MAC, as are all devices. They are all up to date re OS, which means that there is no way to get photos from the EOS into any of the MAC devices. Canon should warn people before they buy the camera that they cannot use it with Macs, as this failure to keep the utility updated means the camera is useless. I've downloaded the supposed "fix" - the Utility2 - and it doesn't work. I'm not sure if this is a firmware or a software issue, but it is unacceptable. If there is a genuine solution to this issue, then your failure to post it prominently on the EOS60D page is an information-delivery issue. either way, again, this is unacceptable.

My favorite camera so far

By Tweet150 from Minnesota on 07/04/2015

This is my 4th Canon SLR and I love it! I got the 60D when it launched and I have not been disappointed yet. It's a little heavy, but I expect that in a good product. I use it for weddings, portraits, landscapes, macro, travel, sports, everything. It goes with me everywhere I go. It's easy to use, there is a ton of different functionality so you can personalize it to your needs. Paired with the right lens you can capture absolutely amazing photos. I am more than pleased with this camera. I am sure there are bigger and better out there, but for the price and options it's a great investment!

Just OK

By GreenMonstah from Albany NY on 05/21/2015

I was forced to purchase this after my 50D broke and by that time, that model was discontinued. My biggest gripe witht he 60D is the mirror shake. I do a lot of macro where the detail and sharpness really count and more often than not, the image is not crisp from the mirror vibration. It's on a tripod and I use a remote shutter release. There should be no blur. It's terrible in low light situations, producing very noisy images. I also don't really know why Canon is such a big fan of the HD video. Unless you're doing interviews where the subject is stationary, it's pretty impossible to take usable video on this because while there is autofocus, it is not constant and is very slow. Canon, you should just stick to pictures. If someone wants video, they'll buy a camera specifically made for it. Despite the gripes, I have been able to get some pretty decent pictures. The movable screen has helped in a few situations where I needed to put the camera over my head and needed to compose my shot or if I was on the ground taking a picture of a flower at an upward angle and couldn't look through the viewfinder. Overall, I'm disappointed with the performance of it. This camera definitely wasn't worth what I paid for it. I can't wait until I can afford the 5D Mark III.

Fantastic camera

By JG from Boston, MA on 04/24/2015

I personally enjoy the physical body of this Canon camera over the other cameras I own. And the adjustable display screen is also an extremely useful tool to have while filming or using a a tripod. Overall, I am quite satisfied with this Canon product so far!

Great camera

By jpmalonesr from Owego, NY on 04/17/2015

Even though I just got this camera I love it. There are so many features that it is not an easy camera to learn but my experiences with using the XT, XTi and Xsi have smoothed over the edges. I wouldn't have wanted to come into this camera cold. Before I actually got the camera I downloaded a pdf of the users guide. This is one of those rare times when I would advise anyone interested in this camera, or any of the advanced Canon EOS cameras, to READ THE MANUAL.

Excellent product!

By ImaClickin' from Loveland, CO on 02/16/2015

I recently received a Canon 60D for Christmas, replacing my Rebel Xti. This camera is brilliant! My favorite features include the ability to shoot in low light situations with ease, and the ability to shoot both jpg's and RAW in one shot is amazing! That battery power is also amazing. I spent two weeks on a Caribbean cruise, and took well over 250 shots, and still had half the battery life left. And the shots were crystal clear, using my two Canon zoom lenses. Thanks, Canon, for a fine product. I can't imagine why Canon has stopped production of this camera!

Very nice

By kat from Virginia on 12/12/2014

I have had this camera for a couple of years now and it has never let me down. Speed and stabilization is great. I am not a camera geek and can only tell you the pictures are wonderful. Any bad pics have been all my fault. Does more than I ask of it. I have never been happier with a purchase. It has also taken its share of beatings - although I have not dropped it from a height. I carry it in a backpack and tend to throw it in my car when I am on the go. I hope to save my money for a larger lens to take even better wild life pictures. All in all, could not be more satisfied.

Why should I upgrade to a 7D Mark II?

By tomcat from Stuart, Florida on 11/23/2014

I started out my Canon camera purchases with point and shoot models when digital cameras first came on the scene. My first DSLR was a Canon xsi. I really feel in love with that camera and shot many thousands of shots without a problem. Many of them turned out so well I entered several in contests and they at least got published. Now I was a committed Canon fanatic with my EF compliment of lens, I decided to upgrade to a 60D. I have had this camera now for about three years and have shot thousands of photos with it. I just love this camera! The quality of the photos I take, even cropped and brought into LR and PS are simply amazing. I am now in a position to upgrade to one of the newer Canon models. As a member of Kelby One when I saw Scott Kelby review the Canon 7D Mark II, I almost bit the bullet and decided to purchase one for myself for Christmas. I liked how all of my lenses would fit the camera body and the fast shutter speed and low light performance almost got me hooked. Then I started getting more serious about the purchase by looking at the features of my 60D vs the new 7D Mark II. First of all, I didn't like the fact the 7D doesn't have an articulating monitor screen. Next I didn't think I really needed that much more speed in burst mode vs my 60D that I have found very acceptable. Lastly, I know it must be great to be able to shoot without noise in the much higher ISO setting with the 7D, but is it really worth me to upgrade at this time. The final conclusion is my decision to stay put with my trusty old 60D and perhaps put my money into a couple more lenses. I really wish at least Canon had put the articulating monitor screen on the new 7D Mark II. I use mine a lot, especially when I shoot video and get in a position when the camera fixed screen just isn't going to allow me to see my shot.

very happy with this!

By calebbodaniel from Evansville, IN on 11/05/2014

Just recently bought the refurb'd 60D. Already extremely happy with the purchase. I'm upgrading from a T3i. Everything from how the camera feels to image quality is better. I know both cameras have the same sensor, but the 60D images are still better than the Rebel's. First, the camera fills my hand better and feels more balanced. Second, I love the more choices for ISO selection. Third, even though there are still only 9 focus points, they are all cross type points on the 60D. Fourth, looking through the pentaprism viewfinder is so much nicer than on the Rebel, and the focus points are a lot more visible. Also, when I preview a picture on the LCD it highlights which focus point I used. Last, and this may sound weird, but the shutter sound on the Rebel just sounded kind of cheap and "chirpy". I really like the way the 60D sounds and it also has quiet mode as well for sensitive situations.

A wonderful DSLR camera, ...

By mark-in-seattle from Seattle, WA on 10/26/2014

A wonderful DSLR camera, mediocre to poor support utilities. Love learning more about my 60D, however on a Mac, EOS version 2, the photo transfer program, has an annoying "feature". Every time you manually run the program it insists on re-installing itself in the Mac's bootup "Login Items" list running in the background whenever the mac is booted. This degrades OSX reliability, is a security issue...yada yada and is not what this user wants EOS to do. It can not be disabled in EOS preferences, forcing the user to enter System Preferences to manually delete EOS from the Login Items list... every time... a pain. Looking for a replacement photo transfer program and will inform Mac and photography website forums about this program's un-user-friendly behavior. Otherwise I love my 60D and have carried it on travels to 3 continents.

Canon is the best

By DonutStick from Jay, FL on 10/19/2014

Since I've been using my Canon EOS 60D, I've always shot Manual, Raw, and on a Tripod; shooting with this Canon gives you all of that and more. The operation of this camera is very easy (just remember to read your manual and shoot every day); controls are logically placed to where they are most convenient to the photographer to use, even while looking through the viewfinder setting up the shot. The resolution given by the 18 mega pixel sensor is outstanding (it definitely shows in the work I've done in school with this camera). With this Professional Canon camera you can't go wrong.

60D - SD Card Reader Issues

By ZVD from Chicago, IL on 06/02/2014


Pros:

Excellent Image Quality, Nice Features/settings, Good Battery Life, Simple Controls/menu

Cons:

Poor Build Quality

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have used Canon SLR cameras for the last 20 years, upgrading about every 4 years to a newer model. My most recent purchase was the 60D. I love the ability to shoot video through this camera. I think the image quality is very good, but would like to have an auto focus feature when shooting video. Like many others who have purchased the 60D, my camera is no longer working. The card reader stopped working. This is unacceptable given the price I paid and the associated expectations. After researching the issue over the internet I understand that this is a common problem.

Long Term User

By JK from Minnesota on 04/24/2014


Pros:

Good Battery Life, Bright Lcd, Easy To Use, Superior Build Quality, Quick Start-up Time, Excellent Image Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I wrote a review a few years ago when I first got this camera, and thought I'd add a long term update. 3 years of use and my 60D works as well as the day I bought it. Still looks brand new in fact. I'm pretty meticulous with taking care of my cameras, but nevertheless I'm very impressed with how well it has held up. It's been to Canada and Florida, and many places in between, including on ski slopes, in boats, and in very dusty gymnasium environments. I've taken many thousands of pictures with nary a problem. I originally bought this camera to use for taking gymnastics pictures of my kids, which is a challenging task. Low light, no flash allowed, very fast action, and you are generally sitting up in the bleachers. My favorite lens with this camera for shooting gymnastics is my Canon 85mm f1.8 USM prime. I generally shoot at 1/500 and f1.8, and even in the poor lighting I can often still shoot at ISO 800, even at 1/500. The autofocus works really well for the most part, especially with the USM lens, even on events like floor exercise where the kids are moving around really fast and the depth of field is constantly shifting. I have gotten some great pics over the years, and rarely miss shots with this camera. The high burst rate for this camera works wonderfully too, for those action sequences you want to capture. I've been equally happy taking portraits, nature pics, and just plain old family and vacation pics with this camera as well. I have the 18-135mm kit lens, the 55-250mm zoom, the "nifty fifty" 50mm f 1.8 prime, and the 85mm f 1.8 prime I mentioned above. I use them all and I'm really pleased with the pictures I've gotten with all of those lenses and my 60D. My family is always asking me to take pics of their kids, because this camera does such a great job. Two of my brothers recently went and bought Canon DSLR's for themselves (a T3i and a T4i) after seeing what my 60 D could do. I love the 60D though, because I use the LCD on the top of the body far more than I ever would have thought. It's just so handy for making quick adjustments to settings - something to definitely consider if you are struggling to decide whether you need it or not. I will never buy a camera without it again, personally. Since I shoot video with this camera as well, I should also emphasize the flip out LCD on the back. For video, having that articulated screen is priceless. You can tilt the screen and cradle the camera while shooting and it's soooo much more comfortable than holding a camera without the adjustable screen. Also, you can close the screen when shooting pics to keep it from ever getting scratched. My screen is still pristine after 3 years of use, thanks to being able to close it! My 60D's reliability has been outstanding and I have just loved this camera! Great battery life too. I have two batteries, but have never had to resort to my back up during a single day of shooting. My teenaged daughter has recently taken an interest in photography, and has been borrowing my camera. She has learned to use it very quickly, so that is a testament to the fairly intuitive menus, etc, and shows that a novice can learn with this camera pretty quickly with a little practice. She tells me it's time to pass my camera along to her and pick up a new one for myself. Based on my experience with the 60D, I will have no hesitation whatsoever with buying another Canon DSLR. I'm looking really hard at the 70D, though I may wait and see which features are on the 7D Mark II when it comes out (like whether it has a flip out screen). I'd love to consider bumping up to full frame, but only if Canon adds the articulated flip out LCD to one of those models (hint, hint). The flip out is just too handy for video for me to consider a camera without it at this point, though I can see why people who just focus on pictures might not care as much. At any rate, the 60D has been a truly outstanding camera for me, and has exceeded all of my expectations! Still in love with it 3 years later, and highly recommend it!

Just Get it

By Gus from Undisclosed on 02/14/2014


Pros:

Weight, Nice Accessories Range, Size, Reliability, Fast Burst

Cons:

Noise At 800 And Up, Rubber Grips Come Off With Time

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I know there are a bunch of other brands and models, but this is truly one of the best cameras you can get for it's price. I've been using this for around 3 years now and I've grown so fond with this camera that I don't know what I would do without it. Yes, there's the 70D now and the 7D, but this lacks none of the reliability and good performance canon is famous for. I've used and abused it in though environments and it has never failed on me. Good weight to size ratio, good burst, nice resolution (just buy yourself a better lens than the kit lens) and did I mention reliability?. The only thing that you should be aware of, is that 1. you should give it it's periodical maintenance, and 2. the rubber grips will get lose with time, but I guess this is normal, mine are starting to come off but I'm aware that they can be replaced. Overall, this is a great camera! Just get it!.

Most unexpected purchase ever

By Adam from New Jersey on 02/03/2014


Pros:

Quick Autofocus, Weather Sealing, Sharp Images, Low Light Performance, Ultra Long Battery Life

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Talk about an unexpected purchase, I had walked into a well known national electronics store to buy a 32G memory card for my Canon Powershot SX20 IS. I walked out with an accessory for that memory card, an EOS 60D with the 18-135mm kit lens. Along with a 70-300mm lens. And I am not one for impulse purchases, it usually takes me 6-7 months to commit to a purchase like this. I have no regrets in the purchase. Five months after purchase, I took the 60D (along with its big brother, the SX20) on a trip to Africa, and while I was still learning the ins and outs of the 60D, let me say that I was more than impressed with the quality of the camera, and the pictures it produced. The images are extremely sharp. The images that weren't sharp, I contribute to my own inexperience with the camera. (In one case, I had a polarize filter on when I had the 70-300 at 300mm. That will produce images that are not sharp.) I had the same exact same learning curve with my SX20 three years prior. Battery life is ULTRA LONG from the two Canon branded batteries I have for the 60D! I was getting between my two batteries more than 2,000 photos per battery. For those who say short battery life, my question for them is the display screen on? The weather sealing on the camera is excellent. While at Victoria Falls, the mist made for an extremely wet environment. While the SX20 was hiding the in the camera bag, the 60D took the moisture in stride, in 100+ F degree temps I should add. It even took the massive amounts of dust in Kruger National Park in stride. Do I have complaints about the camera? Yes, there are a few things that I would like to see different. I would love to see in a firmware update for the camera to create a folder on a daily basis, instead of me having to manually do it, like my Powershot SX20. I also found the button to check the depth-of-field preview in an awkward spot, in my opinion. In Live View, there were a couple of times that I didn't get the photo because I had failed to hold the shutter down long enough for the photo to register. There should be a sound in Live View when the photo has been taken, even if it is just a beep. The 60D is an excellent camera for the money, and in wildlife photography it does shine brightly! I highly recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for a professional level camera!

Helpful hardware

By robberyman from Spokane on 11/28/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am a low light shooter, and in many cases shooting cityscapes from the top of tall buildings. The 60d has been helpful in several ways in this process. The leveling feature on the menu is helpful in pure darkness on top of buildings, and allows for much easier and quicker photo taking. Since it is normally below freezing, or close to freezing the 60d seems to operate well in the colder environments. The 60d size allows for carrying more than one camera body in the packs I shoulder to climb ladders, or small spaces for rooftop shooting. It's convenient. A great investment in upgrading my secondary camera body to this model.

The proud owner of two 60D's

By Quiettsolopursuit from Grand Rapids, MI on 09/15/2013


Pros:

Lightweight/portable, Solid Operation, Nice Features/settings, Excellent Image Quality, Easy To Use, Quiet, Quick Start-up Time, Good Battery Life, Simple Controls/menu, Bright Lcd

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased my first 60D in April of 2013, even though I thought that I wanted a 7D. I sunk most of my money into three quality lenses, and had to "settle" for a 60D. Since the two bodies share an identical sensor, I thought that the 60 D would be OK until I could afford a 7D. I'm a nature, wildlife, and landscape photographer, I seldom shoot video, and photo quality is my number one objective. I have two minor beefs with this camera, one is the location of the on/off switch on the left side of the body, under the mode control wheel. Could they have made the switch any harder to operate? Fortunately, battery life is so good that I turn the camera on when I step outside in the morning, and don't turn it off until I come back inside. My other beef is that Canon doesn't make a split prism focusing screen for this camera, and their precise focusing screen only works with f/2.8 or faster lenses. I can switch to live view and zoom in to 10X for precise focusing, but I would have liked a split prism screen as well. The articulated display is a life saver, or I should say, a neck saver when I'm using the live view. I can place the camera on the tripod and see the screen without having to lay on the ground to do so, a real plus when shooting aquatic plants and insects, believe me! What I love most about this camera is that I can look through the viewfinder, and tell what exposure compensation I need to use 99% of the time. The viewfinder is clear and bright, and very large when compared to the old DSLR that I had. The information is presented in a clear, logical way. The controls for setting the ISO, drive, metering mode, and auto-focus mode are on the top of the body, next to the LED display, and easy to use. It took me a little while to get used to the dial used for setting the exposure compensation, but I have trained my thumb well, and that's no longer a problem. This camera continues to amaze me. I have another brand of 150-500 mm telephoto lens, the auto-focus can pick birds out of the brush that they are hiding in, and the images are sharp and clear. When I switch to the Canon 70-200 mm L series lens, the sharpness blows me away. The 60D allows you to store and use three different sets of "offsets' for image quality, and I have fine tuned those to match my three lenses. I can also store one entire set-up as well, which makes it easy to have one set-up for landscapes, and another for birds and wildlife. I don't see how I could be happier with the images that the 60D produces, or in its operation. So much so that I decided to pick up a second body for an extended vacation that I'm about to leave on. That way, I'll have the telephoto lens on one body for wildlife, and the second body will be for landscapes and waterfalls, to save the time and trouble of switching lenses dozens of times per day. I'll admit that I would still like to have a 7D for its metal body and weather sealing, but I doubt if the images it would produce would be any better given that the two cameras share the same sensor. And, I now have two solid, dependable, excellent performing bodies for about the same cost as one 7D.

Great Value For Money

By Top Hat Media from Park City, UT on 09/06/2013


Pros:

Simple Controls/menu, Good Battery Life, Quiet, Quick Start-up Time, Nice Features/settings, Easy To Use, Excellent Image Quality, Lightweight/portable, Bright Lcd, Solid Operation

Cons:

Medium Build Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I sold my Mark II and bought the 60D when it came out to be able to purchase nicer glass. I purchased the 24-105 and it works perfectly with the 60D. I love the live features to be able to get the perfect lighting before shooting a scene. Since I'm used to the Mark II body I've been spoiled a little bit. The 60D has a lot of hard plastic which is fine because it's built well. I've taken this camera to Alaska several times and it has performed like a pro every time. It has endured snow, rain, dust, mud and kids! It's great for any sort of setting or environment if you take your time. The only complaint I have with it is the focus seems to be off more times than not with AF and MF. Other than that, it's recommended for anyone!

Love my latest Canon

By Shelly from Pennsylvania and Florida, USA on 08/24/2013


Pros:

Superior Build Quality, Easy To Use, Solid Operation, Good Battery Life, Dependable, Excellent Image Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my second Canon DSLR the first was the 20d, both are made very well, I like all the features and I especially like the tilt screen on the 60d, I am in college going for my photography degree so this camera has had a lot of use since I have bought it and it has never failed me, the battery life is one of the best features aside from the awesome quality of the controls and images that it takes! Excellent work and I look forward to getting my Canon EOS 1dx and enjoying the quality that goes along with that camera as well.

Not for photographers!

By Paparico from Hawai'i on 08/17/2013


Pros:

Good Battery Life

Cons:

Heavy/bulky, Shaky Operation, Poor Image Quality, Dim Lcd, Noisy, Missing Features/settings, Slow Start-up Time

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I returned this camera five times to Canon because of poor and inconsistent focus, especially upsetting after purchasing the 70-300 L lens! Even today, it only works on spot focus and exposure, and only in Landscape or Sports settings. The A setting has never worked, i.e., always 4-5 stops overexposed. I wish Canon focused on producing a camera for photographers as the video and Live View features are totally useless to me doing wildlife and sports photography. How bright is it to provide a Rule of Thirds Grid in live view, but not in the viewfinder where it is needed? Possibly the dumbest feature is providing symbols, but not the copyright symbol!

Great upgrade

By jfrey from Coastal Texas on 07/28/2013


Pros:

Excellent Image Quality, Nice Features/settings, Simple Controls/menu, Solid Operation, Upper Lcd Panel, Easy To Use

Cons:

18-135 Kit Lens

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had my 60D for 3 weeks now and it is a great camera. I like the controls and can navigate the menu items with no problem. The "Q" button is very handy and makes sense navigating the camera settings. To the former 50D owners, forget the joystick. You don't need it on the 60D. This camera is an upgrade for me from the wonderful Rebel T3i my wife bought me for Christmas. My son needed a better camera to video my grandson so I upgraded myself and glad I did. The only down side I have found so far is the 18-135 lens that came in the kit. The lens quality just doesn't compare to the quality of the 60D body construction. The depth of field preview button is in an awkward position but I seldom use it anyway so I don't care. I have taken over 200 pictures so far with this camera and my 55-250 Canon lens and been very happy with both. This body is also a good compliment to my Canon 60mm Macro lens. Pictures come out bright and crisp. Pictures in color and monochrome show a lot of detail. If I get a bad picture it is generally my fault. The Canon 60D camera is a great value for the money and I'm glad I decided to buy it when I did.

Solid camera, great features

By Chuck58 from Maryland on 06/23/2013


Pros:

Nice Features/settings, Quick Start-up Time, Easy To Use, Good Battery Life, Bright Lcd, Simple Controls/menu, Excellent Image Quality, Quiet, Solid Operation, Superior Build Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

If you want seriously good,pictures, get a seriously,good,camera. The versatility and capabilities of the 60d come at a very good price point for the serious amateur photographer Now with video recordings ability another deletion is added. Battery life is great'(as long as you are not shooting a lot of video). You can take the camera on a 2 week or more vacation and shoot hundreds of pictures without needin g a recharge. All the aperture and shutter adjusting you need. Large review LCD screen. ( get a plastic protector to avoid scratches ). It is very fast. So while the point and shoot cameras are processing the image you can take 2 or 3 more shots. You will not be disappointed . It is not the super high end that will set you back a lot more money it will rapidly,become your,"Go to" camera

Upgrade from Rebel T1i - Great!

By Teri from Sioux Falls, SD on 05/31/2013


Pros:

Bright Lcd, Superior Build Quality, Quiet, Good Battery Life, Easy To Use, Quick Start-up Time, Solid Operation, Nice Features/settings, Simple Controls/menu, Excellent Image Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We've only had the 60d about a week, but are lifelong Canon owners. We love this camera. The LCD is bright, versatile, user friendly. It is a little bit heavier than our T1i, but the advantages far outweigh this minor issue. We are looking forward to using the wireless transmitter for the slave Speedlights, and the photos we have taken to date have been outstanding. This is an early review of this camera for us but thus far we are thrilled with the performance of the Canon 60d. I had heard good things about this camera from other owners and now I understand why.

Just bought a second!

By ACarm from Central Coast, CA on 05/28/2013


Pros:

Bright Lcd, Superior Build Quality, Easy To Use, Nice Features/settings, Solid Operation, Simple Controls/menu, Excellent Image Quality

Cons:

Heavy/bulky, Short Battery Life

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the Canon 60D. I use it mostly for shooting video, and it is very nice to work with. Manual image controls are simple to use and the live view is super helpful for checking settings (and the rotating screen is an A+ idea). I like the options in video shooting, where you can shoot full HD, or even standard 480p if you don't want to show it in HD, that was a good move by Canon. Just bought my second 60D for video production and I'm excited to get using it in multiple camera situations. As noted in the Cons, it is a little heavy once you get lenses on, but not sure how that could be remedied exactly, maybe in the materials used, but wouldn't want to take away from the solid construction either. Would be nice if the standard battery lasted a bit longer, especially for shooting video. One more little point of feedback, it would be nice if you could natively shoot longer than 12minute video clips. Not that you often need to do that, but it would be nice to not be contained.

Professional quality pictures

Pros:

Lightweight/portable, Nice Features/settings, Bright Lcd, Simple Controls/menu, Solid Operation, Quick Start-up Time, Good Battery Life, Superior Build Quality, Excellent Image Quality, Quiet

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I wanted a professional level camera that I could use, even though my skill level was minimal. I'm NOT disappointed at all. I've had SO MANY compliments about the pictures I've taken of my grandkids' sports and school related activities that I "almost" feel like a professional. I've taken thousands of pictures over a couple of years and it's as solid today as it was when I first purchased it.

The Canon EOS 60D is a wonderful find on my part. Yes I am a genius, in this purchase at least. This is the best EOS ever to my thinking, because you get a camera that competes with the more expensive models in quality of prints at a bargain price. Love It

choosing 60d over 650d/700d, i think this cam still a good choice even though its old, i like the photos coming out of the camera sharp and good colors, top lcd is very useful i hardly use the lcd screen for changing my settings, i also like its ergonomics; you just have to be familiar with it and you'll see, also viewfinder really bright compare to cameras with pentamirror vf, last the battery life "very solid" you'll never worry about it; and you can focus on taking photos

great value, great camera

By iamacamera from New Mexico on 03/24/2013


Pros:

Super-sharp Images, Articulating Screen, Fast Auto-focus, Superior Build Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After having several digital cameras using lenses that start with N (my first digital camera used that lens mount) I am delighted to be back with Canon. This is really a good camera. I have used it for over three years now after having used a Hasselblad in the camera room for thirty years. This little jewel of a camera delivers very sharp photographs of both portrait and advertising subjects for me day after day, month after month. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Perhaps its most useful feature is one that is unique to this camera, at least it was, is its articulating screen. In a professional environment, where I photograph people, I often have people who want to see the screen. All I do is turn it around backwards, so it is out of view, and the question never comes up. Other than that I have used it to photograph the landscape, my passion, as well as limited wildlife and it performs with excellence. I often make prints to 24x30 and even 30x40 and they hold together very well. It is an excellent choice.

One vote for new body

By craftsman from West Virgina on 03/03/2013


Pros:

Good Battery Life, Excellent Image Quality, Superior Build Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased the 60D after owning the 40D and 50D, and was a little worried about the smaller body not being as user friendly as the older, larger one. But I for one like it better than the old style. It still fits my hand very well and doesn't seem as heavy, bulky to wear around your neck all day. There really isn't much gain in the detail of the pics as compared to the 50D,but the low light performance is much better. I do miss the joystick some, but the touch pad works fine after you get used to it. I don't miss the focus microadjust. because I never had a lense that needed it. Overall I'm very happy with the 60D. It's more of a trim to the size, and doesn't feel like a totally different camera line.

The top display is really convenient, and the new camera software works great for frequently accessed menus and sub-menus. Would deffinetly recommend as an upgrade over the T4i. Have not used the Video portion of it, since Im not interested in this feature.

I purchased the 60D a year ago and it has been extremely handy as my backup and all around travel type camera. I noticed recently it had some dust spots on the sensor. I was surprised since I used L series lens on it and do not change any lens out in the field. A local shop cleaned the sensor for me fixing the problem. It is handy, great pictures and I have recommended it to more than one person I know.

Nice camera but...

Pros:

Nice Features/settings, Simple Controls/menu, Solid Operation, Good Battery Life, Excellent Image Quality, Bright Lcd

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Been anticipating buying this camera ever since it came out. So far I'm very pleased, however, I was disappointed when several white specs started showing up on my dark background images. One large one always in the same spot. Which after research, led me to believe there was dust on the sensor. I though, how is this possible? I was very meticulous in putting on the brand new lens for the first time. Couldn't have been more than a couple seconds between taking covers off. After doing a long programed sensor cleaning, problem was solved. No more white specs. I read the camera comes with "Dust Delete Data" software that maps out stubborn dust particles and eliminates them from your image, which will inevitably happen with frequent lens changes, but hey Canon, dust on a brand new sensor?

This was my first DSLR and I'm so glad that it was. It's hard for me to pick and choose what to talk about because there's not one thing I don't appreciate about this camera. The swiveling screen has come in handy in situations where I can't see over crowds, so by tilting the screen down and holding the camera up I'm still able to get my shots. It takes great quality photos and I'd absolutely recommend this to any other amateur or beginner.

I updated from the Rebel XS. This camera is a huge upgrade. As many other reviews say this is more of a Rebel on steroids than a traditional XXD series, but that's fine with me. I like the solid plastic feel and don't think the magnesium body would really make a difference. The integrated wireless flash function is great as well. Unless you need the higher burst rate of the 7D buy this one over any of the Rebel's.

I thought I wouldn't put that screen to good use, but I do. This camera is such a quick and easy camera to work with. All the modes are super easy to understand to get yourself that perfect shot! I love the size of the camera as well. I'm a bigger guy with a pretty big hand, so it fits perfect for me.

Cons:

Articulating Screen, No Sensor To Turn Screen Off When Eyeing Through V

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Like the title says it was the right choice for me. I am moving up from the T1i and wanted a camera with higher image quality, better handling of higher iso and a price tag that wasn't going to break the bank. After reading tons of reviews I decided on the 60d instead of the 7d and I couldn't be happier. As a photo hobbyist I couldn't justify the price tag of the 7d but wanted a lot of what it offered and I got it with the 60d, My only dislike is the articulating screen and no sensor to turn the screen off when you put your eye to the viewfinder.

Phenomenal Upgrade for Serious Amateur

Pros:

Superior Build Quality, Excellent Image Quality, Bright Lcd, Solid Operation, Nice Features/settings

Cons:

Complicated Controls/menu, Heavy/bulky

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I consider myself a "serious amateur" photographer and love to capture youth-sport-action shots. I constantly seek the best shot possible and get a great rush when I capture "the right moment". After a long hiatus from SLRs, I purchased a Rebel XS and was quickly yearning for more capabilities. I compensated for the cameras shortcomings by adding 'low light' lens to my collection but still continued to struggle... I finally decided to take the plunge and purchased an EOS 60D as a replacement. WOW !!! The high burst speed and increased ISO range allows me to capture shots that my old camera never could. I can't wait for my daughters' next dance recital!

I have used this camera extensively since I purchased it a bit over a year ago and I do not regret the purchase at all. Would buy another in a heartbeat. I was a little concerned about the size of the 60D's body (I'm a big guy with BIG hands), I shoot "L" series lenses, and the fact that it did not have a magnesium underframe worried me. In playing with both the 7D and the 60D I did notice that the 60D seemed a bit small in my hands compared to the 7D. So I tried it with the battery grip and the fit was perfect for my larger hands. I also found that the "L" series lenses balanced better with the BG on the 60D. For the $300 difference between the 7D and the 60D with the BG I went with the 60D and battery grip combination. I wasn't sure how much I would use the articulating screen, but thought it could be nice to have....Boy was I wrong!! I use the articulating screen frequently. No more holding the camera up during a reception and blindly shooting hoping I get what I want. The articulating screen is great. While I wish it was a bit faster in playing back what the lens is seeing, I get exactly what I want In 90% of the instances by using "Live View" and the articulating screen. I also love being able to swivel the screen so that I can't chimp. I find myself shooting more and looking less at many events. In a year of beating this camera at weddings, concerts, sporting events and travel, I can tell you that it has held up exceptionally well. I have dropped it, hit it against walls and trees, and really given it a year of hard use...it still looks new (if you ignore the 3 or four places where there is paint transfer from a wall) and everything is still firm, solid, and failure free. Advanced amateurs, this will be a great body for you. You will get exceptional images and is a fantastic upgrade from your Rebel. Do yourself a favor and buy the battery grip for extended shooting and much more comfortable verticle shots. Pros, this makes a great "disposable" or back-up body. I travel with it unconcerned if I loose it, drop it off the top of the building, or otherwise destroy it. It produces images that have been turned into 24x36 wall hangers as well as larger prints for ads. Granted it is not a 5D Mark III, but for what you paid for it, you won't cry for days if you break it.

60d, pro camera packed in half the cost.

By 2000SS from oahu, hawaii on 08/16/2012


Pros:

Superior Build Quality, Easy To Use, Excellent Image Quality, Bright Lcd, Lightweight/portable, Solid Operation, Nice Features/settings, Good Battery Life

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been using 5d mk 2s and 7ds for over a year now, and i bought a 60d to add to my personal armory of cameras. I was amazed at the price, and I would say, it is better that the 7d. the images are sharper, and look alot better. post production is a breeze. if i am out on a shoot, and have a moment of downtime, i can edit the raw images quickly and have a majority of a shoot done before i get home. The 7d does have 60fps video shooting, which is great, and a faster buffer rate. The 60d is an amazing camera, a great buy, and you get proofessional quality with half the cost. The flip screen has come in handy on alot of shoots, allowing me to get angles that other photogs couldnt get. I am surprised that the 5d mk2 and mk3's do not have the tilt-screen. overal, amazing camera. if you are looking to upgrade an older camera, this is the one for you. having used both the 7d and 60d, 60d is a better buy, much sharper, and cleans up nicer. ***my main camera.

Excellent Nature Camera

By gman from Salem, OR on 08/15/2012


Pros:

Solid Operation, Good Battery Life, Excellent Image Quality, Quick Start-up Time, Bright Lcd

Cons:

Heavy/bulky

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I originally bought a T2i with the standard kit lenses for bird photography. I gave it a good run of about 10k shots and found the continuous shutter counts too slow, the battery a bit weak, and the lack of a rotating lcd screen a bit of a handicap. Jumped up to the 60D with a 18-200 and a 100-400L and the problem was solved. Simply put outstanding. Still a bit expensive and I don't like the program mode dial on the left side but all in all a very good camera. Once I became a better photograher the camera was even better. No surprise there. The HD video is excellent but lack of autofocus is a bit of an annoyance but easy to deal with. Works well with back button focus for birding and the 2 lenses seem to do about 95% of what I want to do. Very satisfied.

Excellent camera

By HorseMom from IL and AZ on 08/10/2012


Pros:

Easy To Use, Excellent Image Quality, Superior Build Quality, Simple Controls/menu, Quiet, Nice Features/settings, Quick Start-up Time, Solid Operation, Good Battery Life

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I used this camera extensively on a recent trip to Europe and the photos I got were outstanding. It was easy to use, although a bit heavy to lug around. The lens I have for the camera allowed me to get crisp, clear shots of the mountains. I have a lot to learn about this camera. It has a lot of features that I haven't mastered yet, but the quality of the photos definitely is exciting. Looking forward to learning much more about this wonderful camera.

Great replacement for my analog rebel

By Ken R from SE Michigan on 08/07/2012


Pros:

Nice Features/settings, Bright Lcd, Solid Operation, Quiet, Good Battery Life, Excellent Image Quality, Quick Start-up Time, Easy To Use

Cons:

Complicated Controls/menu

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It performs great, excellent prints I shot beautiful wedding photos, with ease, and a bee on a flower at Niagara Falls that was as if I were right next to it, It took a while to get use to and a lot of reading, but the results were worth it, I was able to use my Rebel lens and things, so it makes a good conversion camera when I switched to digital. my old canon served me well, for near 20 years as an investigator, wedding photographer, and family photo, before it finally dying. I love it

Best HDSLR for low budget hi-Definitiobn work

By Ron Tyler from Tyler, Texas on 08/06/2012


Pros:

Simple Controls/menu, Nice Features/settings, Quick Start-up Time, Lightweight/portable, Bright Lcd, Good Battery Life, Quiet, Solid Operation, Superior Build Quality, Excellent Image Quality

Cons:

None At All

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought my 60D a little over a year ago and I can't say enough good about this camera. It is the answer to a film makers dream as well as the other HDSLR cameras that Canon makes. It fits everything we need. I bought it mostly for HD video production and boy was I surprised. The still photography is flawless as well. You can't go wrong with the 60D made by Canon.

Pluses and minuses

By Eric from San Jose, CA on 08/01/2012


Pros:

Bright Lcd, Superior Build Quality, Nice Features/settings, Simple Controls/menu, Good Battery Life

Cons:

Poor Image Quality, Noisy

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have had this camera for just less than a year. It is a great entry level DSLR, very easy to use, flash when you need it, and a pop out screen that is very versatile. However, I have been very unhappy with the poor autofocus the camera hunts for focus randomly causing me to have to manually focus it nearly all the time. I have tried many lenses and always the same behavior (EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, EF 50mm f/1.4, EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5, EF 24-70mm f/2.8L) The second issue is, even at very low ISO (100-320) the images have a lot of noise, something I would only expect to see at 800+. The camera has never been dropped or abused and all these issues have been present from the first shot, and I have heard similar reviews from other 60D owner.

I have used this camera for about a year and a half. It is a good camera the only things I would like to see is a better lens package and better construction. The grips on my 60D are falling off. I sent it in to Canon repair, we'll see what happens.

Great Camera

By Kubie from Kansas on 07/11/2012


Pros:

Quick Start-up Time, Simple Controls/menu, Excellent Image Quality, Superior Build Quality, Solid Operation, Good Battery Life, Lightweight/portable, Nice Features/settings, Bright Lcd, Quiet

Cons:

Like To See Better Lense Package Offered

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Chose the 60D over the 7D due to the flip out screen and have not regretted it in any way. Yes you lose a few focal points and a couple of frames per second but it lighter, and even though many complained about losing some buttons I find the controls very simple. The larger size compared to the rebel series fits my hand better and I feel it gives me a steadier platform which is handy as I shoot handheld almost all the time. The video is very nice, I have not used it enough to say more. Don't let the plastic case vs the metal of the previous D series concern you much. I've had mine below Niagara Falls soaking wet with no ill effect and it has handled days on the beach in varying weather, hiking and exposure to grand-kids. I would not recommend the latter mind you, but stuff happens! I feel that any impact that would damage it would kill about any camera, its that solid. Picture quality is amazing, low light exposures compared to pocket cameras and film cameras will startle you. It makes it easy to freeze a bumble bee in flight, shoot fireworks, or grab those graduation pictures in a poorly lighted gym. I could go on, and have, as you can guess I am extremely happy with my 60D.

HIGH QUALITY DSLR CAMERA

By MINDFREE from Tampa, FL on 07/07/2012


Pros:

Quick Start-up Time, Nice Features/settings, Excellent Image Quality, Superior Build Quality, Good Battery Life, Bright Lcd, Quick Control Button, Solid Operation, Quiet

Cons:

Did Not Include An Ac Adapter., Push Button On User Setting Wheel Is Not Needed., Auto Focus Must Be Set Before Recording Video.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I upgraded from the S5-IS because I wanted a camera that would be more versatile than any I have owned before. After six weeks I am pleased with the performance of the Canon EOS 60D. With the right lens and settings I am able to capture crisp quality images under any lighting condition. I use the Canon EFS 15-85mm as my standard lens and it delivers superb images every time. The flip out LCD is also very useful. The built in flash is adequate for most settings, but I use a Speedlite 430 external flash for better results. I was a little disappointed with the video mode; if I don't start the auto focus on the camera by slightly pressing the shutter button the video automatically stops after a few seconds. Taking still photos at night with the ISO values of 1600 to 3200 yield some very good images. The camera with the lens feel balanced though a little on the bulky side; which for my hands is fine. Overall, the 60D is an excellent value for the photo enthusiast.

You will love it

By AtlanticPicture from Ocean City, MD on 07/06/2012


Pros:

Cons:

Poor Build Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice cam. It does a little of everything and at an affordable price (now). Ok, the cons.. - I miss the MA what my 5D2 and 7D have. - ISO performance could be better but it's not that bad, depending on what you shoot you might need to look into that of course. I usually use it under 800. - The back of the lcd feels a little thin. one of the plastic elements is a little loose too.. - uses SD cards... -weather seals is..well it doesn't really have one... The goods.... - 18MP, same as 7D, lots of details, room for cropping, printed posters at 20x30 without any problem. - lcd is better than 7D, 5D2, - The tilting screen is awesome. One of the reasons I got it for. It is awesome for video (what I never do:)) but it is also great for low, high shots, macro and/or studio work. Every DSLR should have tilting screen. If the manufacturer do it right it won't take away from the sturdiness of the camera. - Battery life is good and shares the battery with my other cams. :) !! - top lcd - quiet buttons. Yes, some don't like it I do. A lot! Much better than the clicking noisy ones on my other cam's, you'll get used to it quickly My view is that as long as you have a decent cam you should focus on lenses first. This is a very good camera to start with or to have as a backup. If you add some sharp lenses it can produce awesome images.

Hot shoe did not work

Pros:

Cons:

Hot Shoe Doesn't Work

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is my 4th Canon SLR. The picture quality is very good. The metering seems to work better than my 50D. However, I went to use the camera at Christmas 2012 and the hot shoe would not work with my external flash. Fortunately I still have my Canon 50D which works just fine with it. The 60D was still in warranty, and I should have sent it in but frankly I was preparing for a high volume of pictures that do not require flash, and the quality of the pictures exceeds the 50Ds IMHO, so I didn't mess with it. IF the hot shoe wasn't dead, I would be quite happy. I

Bottom Line:

I've been away from the SLR scene for several years and am starting anew. Wow!! What a wonderful camera to start with. It takes great shots and is easy to learn. The automated features allow me to take some really beautiful pictures while I re-learn the real aspects of SLR photography. The 60D is a great camera for anyone who is serious about photography, but isn't ready to commit to a Full Frame format. This camera has even allowed my wife (who is a Point & Shoot fan) to take some really great shots also. A great all-around camera.

I have had my 60D for about 5 months and just love it. I take a lot of sports photos and it is just great for that. I own several other DSLR, several other brands and this is the greatest. I took a long time trying to decided if this would be a better camera and read a lot of reviews and test reports. I am really happy with my 60D. I have 3 lens and not disappointed with the results from any of them.. I did have a little trouble the video mode.

I am new to DSLR systems. And, I was going to purchase one of the Rebels, but I found that it wasn't quite worth it. My uncle had one of the Rebels, and I felt that I could not do a lot of performance shots. Up to this day, my uncle is jealous that I have a better camera then he does. The buttons are placed in what I feel the right places, yes it can be a bit too heavy, but at least its right in the middle when compared to the Rebels and like the 5D.

Great upgrade from Rebel

By zander from Phoenix AZ on 05/30/2012


Pros:

Big Jump In Iso Performance Over Rebel Xsi, Fast Auto-focus, Superior Build Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I got this camera after reading reviews and watching videos. It came down to this one of the T3i. I wanted the flip out screen, and the 60d having more cross type AF points seemed better. More is better right? The ISO performance kills my previous XSIs performance. It gets grainy when you get into the 2000s, but its not unbearable. I tend to do black and white when I'm using high ISO anyway. But I can get shots that would simply have been impossible on the XSI. I haven't played around with the video mode much, but so far its head and shoulders over my old hand held cam. Ergonomics are much better for me. I have decent sized hands, and the 60d fits perfect in my palm. The Rebel feels like a toy in comparison. It has a good weight to it also. I also love the way the shutter sounds. Like a pro camera clunk instead of the high pitched snap the XSI has. I'm definitely loving this camera.

Pros:

Nice Features/settings, Solid Operation, Excellent Image Quality, Easy To Use, Quiet, Quick Start-up Time, Bright Lcd, Simple Controls/menu, Lightweight/portable, Good Battery Life

Bottom Line:

I have used this camera for a little less than a year. It does a very good job. This camera was purchased to replace a camera that had become obsolete. I could not be happier with the purchase. Although I don't backpack with it most of my work is done outdoors. I haven't had the dust problem some speak of and I live in the desert. Lot's of dust, static electricity and wind and no problems. I have found the images to be as sharp as can be expected. If you use a tripod and good camera practice you should get excellent results. I could not be more satisfied. In fact I have used it as well as the 5DMkii and they are very comparable. One of my favorite features is the reticulating viewing screen. I wish it had a built in PC socket.

Disappointed

By Todd from Salt Lake City, UT on 05/25/2012


Pros:

Nice Features/settings, Simple Controls/menu

Cons:

Slow Af, Poor Build Quality

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I like the feel and controls. I'm fast with them but the camera slows me down. I shoot manual with the exception of AF. AF is slow and unreliable. It's a cool camera for a studio, but just awful for any action. Don't use it any dust area, to include pollen, it is not constructed for any kind of weather. I have spent a lot on this, for me, and I spend more time trying to keep it clean than using it. If I'm not shooting inside or from my car, I just use my iPhone.

My second Canon SLR. The first was the EOS 650 film camera with several Canon lenses (stolen) which I LOVED to shoot with. So it makes sense I would replace it with another Canon. All of the research I did led me to the 60D. It is more adjustable than some SLR's, less than a few but is works for me. I have used it for 6 months and have improved the quality of the output photos each time.

Nice Compact DSLR

By TW from Stillwater, OK on 05/10/2012


Pros:

Balanced Weight, Built In Radio Flash Transmitter, Ease Of Use, Build Quality, Image Quality, Flip Screen

Cons:

Mediocre Iso Performance At 1600+

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This 60D has been a nice transition piece between my Rebel and 5D Mark ii. Though lacking in the level of iso performance you would expect to see from the higher end dslr's, it is still an impressive leap from my Rebel. The flip screen was a major turn-off before the purchase, however, I have since used it for numerous perspective shots as well as a great deal of 1080p video. I would recommend a larger card 32GB+ as the file size is rather large if you shoot RAW.

Pros:

Cons:

Bottom Line:

I have been using DSLR camera's for a couple years now, primarily on the Rebel series, and a few times on the higher-end 5D mkII. I purchased the 60D a few months ago because it was the limit to my budget, and had a few more features to the Rebel series. So far, this camera has been one of my best purchases from Canon, and I plan on using it extensively for the next few years.

As a wedding photograher this cam is a great fit, fast focussing on the go. great quality pictures even in low light, location of controls on the camera all make me not miss that perfect shot. Little on the heavy side when carring around for a while but its just a reminder of less plastic parts... The ability to shoot HD video helps me create great slide shows with small video clips as well all with the same cam in hand.. I keep a 20d backup incase of failure on set but dont think ill need it... Thanks once again canon for another great product..

Best Bang for the Buck with Extras

By ZensPhotography from Stow, Ohio on 04/10/2012


Pros:

Supports Full Feature Lenses, Raw Images, Hd 1920x1080 Video, Good Battery Life, For The Pro Or Candid Photographer, Vari-angle Lcd

Cons:

None

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I decided on the Canon 60D because it supports my full frame lenses along with the EF-S lenses. The full HD 1920x1080 video is simply awesome. The swivel out vari-angle LCD monitor is a must for macro photography. I only photograph in RAW so I can get the best photographs always with the APS-C size sensor. 18.0 Megapixels does just what I need to do from professional portraiture to action sports shooting. I have had nothing but good luck with this camera at capturing everything I point it at. Battery life is good and with the extended battery for two batteries I get 3x the photographs.

A wonder in hand

By Pradeep from Undisclosed on 03/23/2012


Pros:

Gives The Satisfaction Of Taking A Photograph.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A camera equipped with all basic to many advanced needs of any photographer. Camera build is very robust and gives a good weight balance with lens. All the features are easy to use. One more important aspect is the image processing software. RAW images are easy to manage and the nice part about it is setting the white balance. There are not many things to say about this camera. It just feels great to have this one in hand. As a photography enthusiast I feel proud and enjoy taking pictures with Canon 60D.

Would you fly on a 787?

By jhb from Muncie, IN on 03/18/2012


Pros:

Camera Speed, Build Quality And Feel, Super Picture Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

i purchased the 60d as a logical upgrade for my t2i. Logical because i own the 15-85, 70-300 and 85 1.8 canon lenses. Much of my shooting since the upgrade has been focused on me two year old granddaughter and her very active cousins. All I can say is that the upgrade has certainly exceeded my expectations. Not a lot of photo quality difference betwwnthe 60d and the t2i. I do feel that the 60d may focus a little faster - very important when trying to capture a couple of very active kids. I would consider the 15-85 lens to be my primary use lens and it is an amazing combination with the 60d - super fast focus and tack sharp photos! Three issues that seem to come up in many reviews - feel and handling, build quality and micro focus. I certainly agree that the feel and handling charteristics of the 60d are a big improvement for me. Build qualiy feels great to me - a big step up over the t2i. The complaint seems to be plastic/composite material vs. metal - would those that complain about this issue fly on thr new composite built Boeing 787? As for micro focus, with my Canon lenses I have not found the need for any more detailed focus provided bt the auto focus system provived by the camera lens combos.

Best DSLR for video to date...

By Royster from Hollywood on 03/17/2012


Pros:

Superb Quality For Dirt Cheap

Cons:

H264 Is Lone Video Available; It's Not True Hd

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I shoot almost exclusively video, and Canon DSLRs have been the client-requested tool for a few years now. I have used the 5D MkII and 7Ds on tiny and broadcast projects alike; when it came time to buy my own camera, I selected the 60D. The video on the 60D is indistinguishable from that of the 7D. The form factor is superior; the flip out / orientable LCD screen solves THE major headache using the bigger cameras. While the 5Ds are superior for stills, the 8 perf ( 'full frame " to still shooters ) format is NOT video friendly... the APS-C sensor cameras are comparable to 35mm cine film, and based on the unchangeable math of lenses, it's the "proven" format to work well for scripted and some off the cuff work, usually with glass from 18-85mm. The two things that could be better : the 60D inexplicably uses SD cards and not CF cards. The camera body could be alloy not composite, and weather sealed... perhaps a 7D MKII will come along and incorporate all the features. I won't suggest obvious video-friendly additions like XLR mic plugs... Canon already makes great " real" video and cinema camera gear at twice the price of their premium DSLRs; the price point the DSLRs and 60D are in simply makes them the still camera you want to own because they are capable of some amazing video imagery. The entire line would benefit for an HDMI clean output and connectors other than HDMI, as well as the ability to feed an output ( monitor or recorder ) while maintaining live view on the camera's own LCD. Dolllar for dollar... 60D is the best camera I have ever owned in 35 years of shooting.. and some of my cameras cost over $20,000.

Glad I made the Move

By Miked from Winter Springs, Fl on 03/07/2012


Pros:

Speed, Iq, Performance, Build Quality, Features

Cons:

Live View

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I finally made the decision to upgrade my camera. I am using a CANON T2i/550D and even though I love this smaller camera, I wanted more. The decision took me about a month of reading, asking questions and then going to my local store and actually seeing the 60D & 7D. I decided on the 60D and I have not looked back. The first things I noticed was the size compared to the T2i, Yea its bigger, but it also feels better built. The swivel LCD screen is something that I had seen on the T3i, but I wanted something other than that, if I was going to add another Body. The swivel screen has been a help in allowing me to take photos and videos in crowded places or in a museum when there was no place to stand by myself. The video is the same quality as my Rebel T2i, but shoots in .MOV. I am going to find software to convert the .MOV files. The biggest items that caught my eye were the AF process of using all 9 AF points for cross focusing to give you a better focusing image and more flexibility. The T2i only had the center point as a cross focus point. The quick control screen allows for using different ambient shooting in certain modes like CA, Portrait, Landscape, Close-up, Sport and Night Portrait. This allows you to select the different Ambience you want the photo to take. I have tried these and it is amazing the differences it makes to the photo. I took the same shot over and over and the results were very good, and each Ambience has 3 setting levels. Also included are the Creative filters for changing the look of the photo while still in the camera. The next option that I found useful was setting up the continuous shooting function. There are 2 choices: Low-speed [3fps] and High-speed [5.3fps] so you have the ability to select what you feel is good for where you are. Certain scene modes can use these options, but others cannot. Portrait is Low-speed and Sport is only High-speed The camera focuses quickly, and the photos are outstanding. When I get a bad photo, I can check in Photoshop and see what my setting were and then I can blame myself for the bad photo. I am still on the battery charge from when I bought the camera and that is about 1,500 photos ago. It is very easy to make changes as this camera has most of the same settings as the T2i, in the way you make the changes. I really like the top mounted LCD screen for when I want to make a quick change to AF mode, ISO, Drive mode and when in P, Av, Tv, M modes. On the CON side is Live Mode, as it is slower and not a good option for me. I am not a fan of this, so it is strictly personal.

A Quality Camera

By rido18 from Southeast Pennsylvania on 02/28/2012


Pros:

Flexible, Size, Image Quality, Features

Cons:

No Focus Microadjust

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used this camera for about a year, and taken about 5700 shots in a variety of places, from Costa Rica and Yellowstone NP to Washington DC and beyond. I have used it with 7 or 8 lenses, from 11 mm to 500 mm. I love the size, and the way it feels in hand. It is moderately easy to use, but I am still learning and not at all bored with it. The shutter is a bit noisy, but less so than the Rebel. I like the exposure flexibility--save in RAW or jpeg or both simultaneously, and in several sizes. I like the layout of controls on the back, and the quick control buttons on the top make it easy to change the ISO or shooting mode. The menus available to control the exposure and the camera are extensive and have kept me learning, which is the way I like it. The battery lasts quite a long time, particularly if you use mostly the viewfinder, not the LCD. The video is easy to use. The leveling feature is very nice. The Image quality is top notch (same as the 7D)--and matched with a good lens, it is a lot of fun to use. I love the fact that there are nearly a kabillion lenses and accessories that are available for Canon DSLRs--a remote shutter release, both wired and wireless, are particular favorites of mine. Finally, the included software, particularly the DPP, is really nice and makes it easy to shoot in RAW and take creative control of the post processing--and you can use it to bridge to Photoshop, if you wish. All in all a solid package, reasonably priced and a good step up from the Rebel.

Excellent camera BUT...

By Ryan708 from Southern NH on 02/28/2012


Pros:

Performance, Cost

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am pleased with this camera in every aspect, IQ is excellent, the AF is way faster than my rebel, the build quality is better, and there are alot of features. I love the wireless flash controll. My only gripe is that the predecessor (50d) was made of magnesium, had a faster continuous shutter speed, and had fine focus adjustment. I feel like an "upgrade" for a semi-pro camera should not have gotten rid of these features. The 7d is a LOT more money for the people looking to step up from a 40d or 50d.

great value purchase

By Phototramp from Willow Street, PA on 02/16/2012


Pros:

Features Price And Weight

Cons:

None

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I needed a crop frame sensor camera for some work that I do in real estate. The 60D was the answer to my problem. Great price, good balance and weight, really nice features over all. This camera purchase was mainly for a backup camera, and the use of wide angle lenses that would not work on my full frame Canon 5D Mark II.

Fully Meets Expectations

By Spud from Undisclosed on 02/11/2012


Cons:

Live View Button Location

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've actually had two 60D's. The first I had to exchange due to a focusing problem. Understanding that the manufacturing process cannot be perfect one hundred percent of the time, I don't hold my previous misfortune against Canon or this particular model. All in all, I can't find much about the 60D to complain about. The one exception is that the Live View button is right where my thumb naturally lands, so I'm frequently turning this feature on by accident. I'll get used to it.

IS is exceptional!

By Lisa from Atlanta, GA on 12/18/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this camera with the 18-200 IS lens. While taking some water shots with slow shutter speed, everyone told me no way I could take them without a tripod. Well, they were wrong. I was able to get exceptional water shots using a slow shutter speed (1/5) and everything was in focus except the great movement of the water. Additionally, I am thrilled with the picture quality of the camera.

Awesome Machine

By CanonMan from Valencia, CA on 11/19/2011


Pros:

Iso Is Clean, Quick Start Up, Easy To Operate, Can Use Ef + Efs Lens

Cons:

None

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was originally considering the 7D. But I purchased the 60D because I don't need 8fps and the 60D can activate Speedlites (Master unit). With the money I saved I replaced kit lense with Canon prime glass and later added Canon Speedlites. Composite body is GREAT, light weight yet hefty feel. Swivel LCD is a PERFECT for shooting in crowds; I captured PRICELESS, one of a kind shots at a recent Mud Run. Battery life is great; 800+ shots on a single charge. If you don't need a FF camera get a 60D.

Love it!

By Plankwing from Portland, Oregon on 11/16/2011


Pros:

Mode Dial Lock, Easy To Set For "point-and-shoot" Nature Photos, Excellent Image Quality, Swivel Screen

Cons:

None

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A friend bought a 60D and snagged it the day before the official release then handed it over to me to "break it in" for him. I used it for three days and my wife also used it for a few shots before we delivered it back to him. We loved the swivel screen and were especially pleased to see the Mode Dial Lock as we have ruined a number of shots with our other Canon EOS digitals by accidentally turning the dial when switching on/off. We soon bought a 60D that is my wife's "go-to" camera for our nature photography (100-400 IS USM on it). The 60D is the best mid-range Canon yet. What's not to like about it? Love it!

Better than great

By Avid User from Pearland, TX on 11/11/2011


Pros:

Functionality, Ease Of Use, Can Use Older Ef Lenses, Quality

Cons:

Software Does Not Work With Mac Os Lion

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had this camera for one year and it still amazes me on the quality of photos, ease of use, and functionality. I purchased the 'body only' because I had lenses from an EOS Elan iie film camera that I had kept in the closet over the early digital years. I was excited when the 60d came out because I felt it would finally replace that camera. Like I said, it still amazes me. This past month I purchased a 580exII flash unit and a 10-22 zoom. Each time, the camera functionality has been superb. That's why it's better than great!

Great 2nd SLR

By Gram from Spokane, WA on 10/20/2011


Pros:

Fully Articulating Screen, Good Battery Life, Nice Features/settings, Quiet, Solid Operation, Lightweight/portable, Bright Lcd, Fast Frame Rate

Cons:

Kit Lens 18-135 Focused Slowly And Noisily, Plastic Body

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This camera was my second Digital SLR after having a Rebel for a few years, I decided "to get serious". I was getting ready to start traveling and wanted more pixels and absolutely loved the fully articulating screen. I used the screen as a variable prop while taking long exposure pictures in cathedrals in Europe where I couldn't use a tripod and had good results. I appreciated the locking mode dial and my crisp results. I wish it had a magnesium body and more moisture sealing. Much better battery life than Rebel.

Great Pictures to be had

By MIke_B from Virginia, USA on 10/13/2011


Pros:

Nice Features/settings, Excellent Image Quality, Quick Start-up Time, Good Battery Life, Lightweight/portable, Bright Lcd

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased the 60D +18-135mm kit lens, as a replacement to an old and well used digital Rebel. This camera is amazing. It took a little time to get used to the new settings and menu options, but after the slight learning curve, it has produced some amazing pictures. The high ISO settings in low light perform better than I expected. I have used this camera in museums, for sports, wildlife, and landscapes in Spain and the US since I got it. The weight is perfect when traveling and the kit lens performs better than I thought it would. I have rarely used the other lenses that I own as this makes a pretty darn good "walk around" lens. My only real concern is one that I have not experienced, but have seen, is the rubber peeling on the grips. Let's hope it stays put.

Great For Astronomy

By J&H from Cheshire on 10/05/2011


Pros:

Quick Start-up Time, Lightweight/portable, Easy To Use, Bright Lcd, Nice Features/settings, Excellent Image Quality, Good Battery Life, Simple Controls/menu, Quiet

Cons:

Awkward To Turn On & Off

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The first Canon DSLR I bought was a EOS 400D and I must confess I have been very pleased with it until I took up Astronomy. The difficulty I had was focusing on stars & constellations through the viewfinder even when using an angled 1X3 Angled view finder. With the EOS 60D just pull out the LCD and press the magnify button and M-focus job done. My only gripe is the on/off lever which is awkward to turn on & off but then again, I have fat fingers. The EOS 60D is an Excellent camera at a good price especially if you shop around.

Right Choice step up

By click4life from Hamptons, NY on 10/02/2011


Pros:

Lightweight/portable, Excellent Image Quality, Good Battery Life, Bright Lcd, Quick Start-up Time, Solid Operation, Superior Build Quality, Quiet, Simple Controls/menu, Nice Features/settings

Cons:

It Could Cost Less

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had to buy a new Canon after breaking my old one. So, I decided to step up and get a semi-pro camera. 60D is giving more than I expect and I'm very please with it. I do all kind of photos (portraits, landscape, real estate, jewelry, products, pets etc) and I'm sure I will be able to do better shoots with this one. I compared with other brands by reading all reviews, but this is my best choice. I got the lens 18-135 mm and fits perfect for what I need. It could cost little less or give some extras accessories, or Canon should have a fidelity buyer program to give discounts, etc. I have to got to shoot now...Take care.

Great step up from 450D

By Jonny from London, UK on 09/27/2011


Pros:

Good Battery Life, Easy To Use, Quick Start-up Time, Bright Lcd, Superior Build Quality, Lightweight/portable, Nice Features/settings, Excellent Image Quality, Quiet, Solid Operation

Cons:

Complicated Controls/menu

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the perfect camera for the amateur making the step up from a first SLR. The tilting screen seems like a gimmick but you find yourself using it constantly and wonder what you did without it. Most impressive is the performance at high ISOs, with images at 3200 still usable in print, anything lower than 1600 ISO is superb image quality and only rivalled by pro-level SLRs. The only possible negative is the price, although compared to the pricier 7D with very similar features, this represents a pretty good deal. Read the reviews from 3rd party website before you buy, but you WILL buy it.

Super camera!

By Hawk from Elbert, CO on 09/22/2011


Pros:

Excellent Image Quality, Quick Start-up Time, Bright Lcd, Simple Controls/menu, Good Battery Life, Solid Operation, Nice Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've been a Canon SLR fan since the 70s when I bought my first AE-1 then A-1. I shoot mostly landscapes and nature to include macro (although don't own a macro lens yet) and I like shooting flying hawks. The 60D provides many more features than the T1i and I especially like the 'C' setting which I have set for action shots (birds). I haven't gotten used to the location of the trash button but may someday. Other than that, the increased ISO offerings, the faster continuous shooting, the top display are all improvements I really like. BTW, I don't use the auto settings ever; either Tv or Av.

Bottom Line:

I went from a10D to a Rebel Xti to the 60D. The 60D is a wonderful combination of weight, build and features. It works for everything I need and has enough weight to feel well-balanced with heavier lenses, although an accessory grip helps. The LCD on the back is fantastic; it has very high resolution. And the battery life (I have 2 in the grip) is amazing.

Great Upgrade from Canon T2i

By Carfreak8394 from Port Charlotte, Florida on 09/18/2011


Pros:

Superior Build Quality, Quick Start-up Time, Solid Operation, Simple Controls/menu, Quiet, Excellent Image Quality, Bright Lcd, Nice Features/settings, Good Battery Life

Cons:

Heavy/bulky, Missing Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I upgraded to the Canon 60D from my Canon T2i. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The difference in quality is amazing, and Canon nailed every little detail on this model. The one thing that I really love is the long battery life because having to lug around extra batteries everywhere I go can be a big hassle. The main uses for my 60D include sports photography and portraits, and I feel like it was designed exactly for those tasks. I really enjoy using my 60D and I highly recommend it!

So close to perfect

By Lupus from Portland, Oregon on 09/03/2011


Pros:

Bright Lcd, Easy To Use, Quick Start-up Time, Excellent Image Quality

Cons:

Noisy, Short Battery Life

Bottom Line:

Great for those with experience in video. This camera has an amazing build quality for its price, as well as a wide variety of features (shooting modes, filters) that really are a massive step up from the Rebel series. The downside of this camera is the rather short battery life as well as not being weather sealed. I am very content with the performance and have not had a single issue with its functionality. Articulating LCD does get in the way of the strap on occasion, but it does not feel fragile or breakable. For the photographers who want to play around with shooting angles, it doesn't get much better than this.

Not a 7D but not bad

By Bird from Atlanta, GA on 08/24/2011


Pros:

Nice Features/settings, Good Build Quality, Quick Start-up Time, Excellent Image Quality, Bright Lcd, Simple Controls/menu, Good Battery Life, Solid Operation, Easy To Use

Cons:

Noisy, Joystick Is Gone

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have owned all of the XXDs but decided to downsize from the 50D last year and bought a T2i. The T2i, although a good camera, was just too small for me to grip comfortably so I upsized to the 60D. It really is a good compromise between the T2i and 7D. Although lighter and smaller than the 7D it is large enough to handle well and is fully featured. The menu structure makes more sense to me than the menus on the T2i. At 63 (and 6' 5") I'm not as flexible as I once was and the fully articulated LCD allows me to shoot at low angles much more easily. The view finder is large and bright (I use an EP-EX15 with my glasses) and the lighter weight (lighter than the 7D) allows me to carry it all day comfortably. With the 18 megapixel sensor you get professional quality images at a reasonable price. This camera is true Canon quality for the advanced amateur and gives the photographer a professional camera feel for less $. I converted to Canon after 20 years with other brands starting with the EOS Elan 7NE. I have owned all of the XXD models and Canon never disappoints when it comes to producing quality images.

More than I Expected

By Jeff from New Jersey on 08/18/2011


Pros:

Easy To Use, Quick Start-up Time, Nice Features/settings, Solid Operation, Quiet, Excellent Image Quality, Good Battery Life, Bright Lcd, Superior Build Quality, Simple Controls/menu

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first DSLR, but not my first camera, nor my first Canon product. I am an accomplished amateur photographer. This camera replaces a Canon G9. This camera is more than I had hoped for. It's the best digital camera I have owned to date. The image clarity and quality is superb, sharp, and colorful. The camera does an excellent job of gauging exposure capturing shots that previous camera mus-judged and over/underexposed. Focus is lightning quick (using 18-135 IS kit lens). The viewfinder is nice and bright due to the pentaprism design and contains all the information you need about the shot. The tilt/swivel display is a great addition and very practical! Through the detailed menu system you have a number of choices of camera operation. You have a number of RAW and JPG mode choices, and 1080p video in a number of different modes. You will not be unhappy with your choice if you get the 60D.

I have fallen in love with the fact that I can switch from auto focus to manual focus with the simple flip of a switch. The battery life is beyond belief! Talk about High Definition...this camera has it all. I could not be more pleased. I highly recommend it to family, friends and strangers who ask me about it. Now if I could just save up enough money to get the MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro Photo lense for my bug shots.......Simply AWESOME camera.

Great Camera, but could have been so much better

By KiLLSWiTCH from Undisclosed on 08/18/2011


Pros:

Excellent Image Quality, Solid Operation, Simple Controls/menu, Quick Start-up Time, Bright Lcd, Nice Features/settings, Good Battery Life, Easy To Use

Cons:

Build Quality Is Ok, Af In Live View Is Ok, Price

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The only thing I have against this camera is the body construction. I wish it had a magnesium alloy body. The swivel screen is a really great feature as it allows you to take shots from awkward angles which otherwise would have been just difficult to do. The autofocus in live view is slow and makes the whole point of using live view rather pointless. Also, the direction pad should be replace with a joystick. Or make the existing pad more comfortable to use. These are the gripes I have about this camera, and other that these issues its a BEAUTIFUL piece of hardware. The moment you hold it, you will like the feel of the body as it conforms to the shape of your hand grip. It has a rather nice rubber grip. The size of the body is good too. It weighs just fine, at least for me. The control layout is nicely balanced as your fingers will be quick to finds its way to the most used buttons. The auto focus is really great with its 9 cross type AF points.

It does it all

Pros:

Easy To Use, Superior Build Quality, Nice Features/settings, Good Battery Life, Excellent Image Quality, Quick Start-up Time, Solid Operation

Bottom Line:

I have used many DSLRs and the 60D does a great job the focus speed is very fast. The white balance is also as good as more expensive cameras. The feel and weight also makes you feel as if you are carrying a 2000 dollar camera.

My favorite impulse buy

By rhoaje10 from Philadelphia, PA on 07/28/2011


Pros:

Easy To Use, Nice Features/settings, Excellent Image Quality, Solid Operation, Good Battery Life, Simple Controls/menu

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best camera I have owned. I saw it on the shelf and needed to buy it. I had wanted to get a DSLR because of difference in quality over the point and shoots I have owned in the past. The specs on this camera is more than I was really ready for but I have learned how to use it and would only change one thing about it, a full sized sensor. But that will be for my upgrade if I ever need it.

CANON 60D BODY

By Eagle from OH on 07/28/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The location of the depth of field preview button is extremely awkward. It's hard to reach when using larger lenses, especially lenses employing tripod collars plus ... it is on the wrong side for right handed shooters. (Just try pressing DOF while adjusting f-stops!) Would love to see a custom function to allow the *, +, - or other button near the main dial to actuate depth of field (like old EOS Elean IIe). Yeah, most of those non-landscape, non-nature shooters with IS lenses say they never use depth of field anyway, but for the serious nature shooter, this function is quite important. Important enough for me to spend the time to write this. Wish I had known more about this before purchasing.

I rented the 7D & the 60D to test before buying one & the 60D sold me. At a weeding shoot both cameras did very good but I fell in love with the 60, i sold my Rebel T2i & bought the 60d. The 60d body construction is a lot sturdier and a solid build like the 7/5D not the plastic style of the Rebels & the battery life is a lot better to. Photo quality is determined by the user & the lens, but with all of my lenses my photo quality is better than with my T2i... Nice

EOS 60D

By Elifonts from Sunnyside, WA on 07/15/2011


Pros:

Simple Controls/menu, Solid Operation, Nice Features/settings, Quick Start-up Time, Excellent Image Quality, Bright Lcd, Quiet, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased the 60D as an addition to my 40D. I wanted to have one camera specifically for my telephoto lens so I did not have to keep switching the lenses around and risk dropping or getting dust in camera. I did not realize how many advancements were made from the 40D to the 60D. I thought they'd be almost identical. But wow, was I in for a shock. Not only have they increased the pix quality but also added some nice features like the LCD flips out and is adjustable, love that, and it seems to me to be quieter and faster. I am still learning all the new features and have yet to play with the video playback feature. So far am loving this new investment and have no regrets, wish I could afford to get one more to replace the 40D that has my telephoto lens on it.

Canon 60D rocks

Pros:

Quiet, Bright Lcd, Nice Features/settings, Good Battery Life, Simple Controls/menu, Easy To Use, Solid Operation, Excellent Image Quality

My first SLR camera and I am loving it. After a few outings with T2i and T3i, I decided on the 60D. The touch and feel plus the handling are comfortable surpringly for my small hands. It works really well with my 15-85 lens as well. The pictures quality are outstanding. I will enjoy this camera for years to come and looking forward to explore and push it to it limited usages.

Great Image, but sub-par quality

By kyuraso from Chicago on 07/12/2011


Pros:

Lightweight/portable, Bright Lcd, Simple Controls/menu, Solid Operation, Excellent Image Quality, Easy To Use, Quiet, Quick Start-up Time, Nice Features/settings

Cons:

Poor Build Quality, Short Battery Life

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been very pleased with the overall image quality of the 60D, but recently, after 7 months of owning the camera, the grip on the body is starting to peel away at the tip of the shutter button and around where the thumb goes. It's annoying and feels like any longer it is like this, it is going to come off completely. This is very disappointing to me. Hopefully I can get this fixed. Other than that one little issue, the camera is great! Video is outstanding (what I mostly use it for) but pictures are just as great or better especially if you've got some nice glass. The menus are just as easy to navigate as any other Canon cameras, the buttons feel very nice and solid, and the screen is gorgeous and true to what it is actually being seen. Overall, a great camera, with a slight build issue. If they were to improve that, camera would get an A+, (currently at an A)

Best thing that ever happened to me

By SereneSword from Lexington, Ky on 06/23/2011


Pros:

Quiet, Good Battery Life, Solid Operation, Superior Build Quality, Bright Lcd, Lightweight/portable, Simple Controls/menu, Excellent Image Quality, Nice Features/settings, Quick Start-up Time

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I recieved the Canon 60d as a graduation present from college, I asked for it. I am an inspiring director, editor, and actor. I've only had it for a month but now with my skills I've aquired from my video production job, I now am using it to shoot and director and act in a Full Length Feature Film, also a short film, and also possibly some wedding videos, and music videos. With this camera and the right software and skills, you can do anything that big production companies can do!! except super super Inception style Slow Mo seemlessly, can come close with timewarp fx though. but the 60fps with 720p is so smooth its epic, and the total control of depth of field on the standard lens is incredible. I had built this camera up so much in my head i thought it wouldnt live up to its potential, but it surpassed it! The night shot quality and low light is incredibly good, the iso range is amazing, but dont expect to take it into a cave and be able to see what your eyes see, you still need a little light. The colors are amazing. the ease of use is great. its durable, and quick to use on the fly. With this camera, you can do what you have pictured in your head, all you need are the actors and sets, and you can get those free, people love to be in movies that will look good. Oh and the swivel screen is a most!!!! For all you cinematographers out there, get the 60D nothing else will work.

Poor build quality

By epixphoto from Old Bridge, NJ on 05/29/2011


Pros:

Easy To Use, Excellent Image Quality, Lightweight/portable, Quick Start-up Time, Good Battery Life

Cons:

Poor Build Quality

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this camera as a step up from the T1i and I was disappointed at the build quality especially the grip. The rubber on the grip peels off. I thought it was my copy but I've looked at different copies at different stores and they all have the same issue. Since I'm a heavy user, I returned it and purchased the 7D. Although, the 7D is heavier and doesn't have the swivel screen, I am happy with performance and build quality. I've noticed that Canon's build quality on their new series of cameras (60D, T3i, and T3) are below standard. I'm surprised more people haven't complained about this; perhaps, these units are too new.

Awesome DSLR camera

By RChan from Boston, Ma on 05/06/2011


Pros:

Excellent Image Quality, Bright Lcd, Nice Features/settings, Solid Operation, Good Battery Life, Simple Controls/menu, Superior Build Quality

Cons:

Slow Fps

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great DSLR camera. This is my first DSLR camera I have owned but not the first I have used. At first, there was a lot to learn and a lot of controls but after a few hours, everything came easy and changing settings came real easy to me. Battery life was amazing for me. I was able to get close to 500-600 shots out of the battery but this was also with me playing with settings and messing around with the camera all the time. I think I can get close to 800 pictures on a single charge. 5.3FPS is fast but I wish it was as fast as the 7D (8FPS). No lag at all when shooting at full 5.3 FPS. I did however has some lag when using a slower memory card. I ended up getting a SanDisk Extreme and no lag for me. Swivel screen is useful when trying to get low angles but do not want to lay down on the ground. I have gotten a good amount of use out of the swivel screen and not just for video but pictures as well. AutoFocus is slow when using LiveMode but fast when using the viewfinder. Have 9-cross point for AF is great and changing where you want the camera to focus is very easy. Just hit a button and scroll then start snapping pictures. Manual audio control for video is a great addition. I just wish you can change the audio level when recording but you can't. No big deal since the video stuff I'm going to do are going to be short clips. Build quality feels solid and not cheap. Top LCD screen is great to look at your settings on the go when your doing manual shooting. Pictures and Video are sharp. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and this camera is the best bang for your buck. It might cost more then the t3i but well worth it.

I have had the EOS 60D for about 3 months and consider myself a pro-armature, power-user. All I can say is that this camera is addictive and very very impressive from a quality and performance perspective. The flip screen on the back was why I bought the 60D versus the 7D and commend cannon for the design - I love that functionality. I have to also add that Canon has done a great job of developing digital instructional material to accelerate learning of the many features of this camera and associated software.

Great Performance and Features

By PK-JIN from Sentani, Papua, Indonesia on 05/03/2011


Pros:

Quiet, Good Battery Life, Nice Features/settings, Quick Start-up Time, Bright Lcd, Excellent Image Quality, Superior Build Quality

Cons:

Difficult To Use, Complicated Controls/menu

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I got this camera half a week ago and so far, it is a beautiful one! The 60D has good basic features such as the 18MP sensor and 5.3fps burst rate. The body tends to be a little handful for small hands (or those used to the smaller Rebel series) but I got used to it within 2 days or so. The menu and GUI is nicely organised and aesthetically pleasing. Speaking of the menu - the camera comes with lots of nice other features, such as silent shooting and built-in wireless transmitter (yes!). The thick manual booklet was of great help for me to get started on the camera, for the buttons were positioned very differently compared to the 400D (Rebel XTi) that the 60D replaced. The LCD screen, besides it being tiltable, is bright, vivid, and crisp. As advertised, +1 million dot resolution, and it is not easy to tell the difference between two pixels. Overall, the 60D is a great mid-range DSLR, and I am very pleased with it so far. However, I will have to see how the polycarbonate resin body will do in case of future exposure to harsh shooting conditions.

An amazing execution of technology!

By TheRepairMan from Eastern Tennessee on 04/29/2011


Pros:

Bright Lcd, Quick Start-up Time, Superior Build Quality, Works Well With Even An 8gb Class 10 Sdhc, Excellent Image Quality, Easy To Use, Solid Operation, Feels Very Solid And Fits Average Adult Hand Size

Cons:

Paid Too Much But That's My Fault.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Like others, it's my 1st DSLR, but my 4th digital camera, and I've been taking pictures for over 40 years. I've owned a few great film cameras, too. I've even done some pro commercial work, and I am blown away with the Canon 60d. There's a learning curve to using all it's features, but it is also so easy to use. Both my wife and daughter picked it up and immediately started taking great pics. The body and kit lens are well balanced, a little on the heavy side for smaller folks but feels just perfect in my hands. I could only be happier if the price was a little lower, but compared to the T3i and the 7d this is the better bargain in my opinion. It's a great piece, and the only real upgrade you will need are lots of subjects, and time to travel to places to shoot. Did I mention this Canon is my all time favorite electronic toy, and it's one serious toy for sure! Yeah, it is a love affair.

Pros:

Easy To Use, Lightweight/portable, Simple Controls/menu, Excellent Image Quality, Nice Features/settings, Bright Lcd, Quick Start-up Time, Good Battery Life

Bottom Line:

The Canon 60d is by far the best cropped sensor camera i used to date. The 7d was more heavier and bulkier and the 60d felt just right. The Picture quality is amazing and depending on the lens that you have the camera will just get getting better and better. The wireless speedlite flash function is a great plus as well. And of course the swivel screen has allowed me to get a lot of great shots that without it it would be hard to do. I recommend this camera to anyone because its easy to use and will allow you to grow with it once you get to know more about photography.

Cons:

Bit Slow 5.3 Fps Shooting I've Used Better

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this camera with only a few expectations. I usually use my film camera for my artistic photos and primarily for school. I am not only a photography enthusiast but a bike enthusiast. I needed a camera that would help me through video edits and my riding shots. I wanted to replace my 50d and my vixia hf s200. though i still love both of these products, the 60d is superior to both, or at least both at the same time. the movable lcd monitor is extremely convenient for filming, and though i don't see too much difference in 50d shooting and the 60d, it is a better fit in my camera bag. i love the camera and iso is also really nice for all weather shooting. it is pretty affordable and simply lovely. thanks canon.

Cons:

Missing Features/settings

Bottom Line:

This was an upgrade from the Rebel XT. I love this camera almost as much as my wife. I have read many reviews and usually focus on the negatives, but after listening to there complaints, it was the right price for what I needed. Supposebly this camera sits between the 50d and the 7d, right where Canon wanted it to be. If you want to spend the extra money for the 7d that only had one comparison difference, shooting speed, to me that was an extra 700 dollars, not worth it. The flip display is awesome, especially when trying to get a better angled shot. I can go on and on about how great this camera is, I bought it and I love it!

Pros:

Solid Operation, Superior Build Quality, Bright Lcd, Easy To Use, Excellent Image Quality, Nice Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first DRSL! As I finally had the money to get one, I decided on this among other reasons because most of the people I know that have dslr's have a Canon and they are all very happy with their camera products. I also could not be happier. I got it in Nov. 2010 and at that time most of the reviews complaint about the "plastic" built... don't even pay attention to those reviews. It is a solid camera and I ever since I got it I can not stop playing with it because you can do so much with it. So if you are like me, that are scared to get something because you've never had a dslr before, know that I was in your shoes back in November and if I had to do it again I would get this camera again. The screen is fantastic and it has proven to be helpful for me already as I've gotten shots on angles that I could not have gotten without the "swiveling screen". The kit lens is not a fancy lens but the pictures do come out great and I find it to be a very user friendly walk around lens. I've added other lenses already and can't wait to keep taking pictures. Good luck shopping and whatever you get I hope you like it as much as I like my camera.

what can I say about the 60d, this camera has all that you could ask for, and then some ! It's not a pro camera(close to it thought) but for someone looking to spend a little more time taking awesome pictures it's perfect. Canon hit it out of the ball park with the moveable screen, the only gripe I have is that I wish the selector button on the top left went all the way around instead of stopping at some point. **well worth the money** this is my second canon camera and I am a fan of their stuff all the way!**

Bottom Line:

After using a Rebel XSi, I needed an upgrade that had more features and amazing quality. It was a toss up between the 7D and the 60D and I decided to go for the 60D. I really put the camera through a rigorous test during my trip to DC and I was amazed at how clear the photos turned out especially photos that showed depth of field. The video feature was great as well however I really didn't use that as much as I wanted. Great camera overall!

Pros:

Nice Features/settings, Bright Lcd, Easy To Use, Good Battery Life, Quick Start-up Time, Quiet, Superior Build Quality, Excellent Image Quality, Simple Controls/menu, Solid Operation

Cons:

Superior Build And Quality Of The Body, Being Too Heavy Is Not A Con. It Relates To The

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this camera back in Dec '10. I wasn't really looking for something that has this many user features - I was looking @ the T2i since I am a beginner photographer. Body/Handling: When I went to my local photography shop and was handling both camera's (60D & T2i) I absolutely loved the feel and handling of the 60D. I have relatively small hands and they seemed too big for the T2i. The 60D has a sturdy build to it and allows you to be a little rough with the camera without it feeling like the body will crack or break. I am not saying that I treat my camera badly, but every once in a while it WILL bang up against something and I don't worry that the body will damage. With as much hikin and camping as our family does, I really like that the camera is dust & water resistant. Again, this doesn't mean that I take the camera in extremely wet or dusty conditions for a long period of time - I simply use it for the weekend trips to Moab where we'll be hiking in the Arches or Zions and a little dust might get kicked up from time to time, or an afternoon sprinkle might appear and it's nice to know that my camera is protected to an extent. Options: WOW! I am so glad that I have more control over my camera than with the T2i. Althought the 60D sits in between the 7D and the T2i, it allows my nearly 100% more control over my manual settings. I love the rotating dial to flip through my pics or menu (Q button). One of the greatest features is the swiveling LCD screen. I recently shot a 6min video with the camera and had I not had the swivel screen, I wouldn't have acheived many of the angles or frames that I got. Not to mention that it protects the screen when the camera is stored away. Internals: Although the line up from T2i thru 7D all share the same image senor (and size @ 18pixels), I thoroughly enjoy the burst rate of 5+fps. The pentaprism mirror in the viewfinder allows for better manual focus points. Photography features: The burst of up to 1/8000 for a max shutter speed is awesome - I've used it a few times from some hockey games. It's not a feature that is used too often though, but it's nice to have when you need it. A couple other wonderful features are the ability's to use wireless flash and shutter. I've taken some family photos with a 4 & 6yr olds and had I needed to set the timer for 10sec we would have NEVER gotten the absolute best family portrait that was taken. I guess that is all I can review on the camera/body and in concluding this review I would buy this camera again if I had to. The 4 stars on the price/value was because I bought it fairly new on the market and thought it was highly priced (at the time). Good luck with your camera purchase (where ever you buy or whatever you buy)!

Being the previous owner of the Rebel XT that camera NEVER failed me so now after taking over 25,000 shots with that model it was time to upgrade to the 60D camera. After only owning for a few days I am already impressed with all of the features. I am anticipating many years of reliable useage from this camera as well. I am very pleased with my purchase. Now it's time to start taking some pictures!! TSTEX

I could actually carry in my bag a Wide-Angle and Portrait 85mm 1.2 Lens without any arm or shoulder fatigue. The Vari-Angle Screen help out with alot of over the head camera shots, while using LiveMode!! Not only great pictures, but great video clips made for a very interesting day full of pictures I couldn't take with a regular camera. I actually couldn't wait to get home to play with all the images and video!! If your a professional you might not use this camera, but then again if you are a professional you might want to consider it, because it packs a mighty punch!!! As long as you have the Right Lens, I don't see why this camera can't go all the way!!!!

Great camera for video and photo profesional

By trip3980 from Undisclosed on 03/16/2011


Pros:

Excellent Image Quality, Quiet, Solid Operation, Superior Build Quality, Easy To Use, Lightweight/portable, Simple Controls/menu, Bright Lcd, Quick Start-up Time, Nice Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

there is really not too much I can say bad about this camera just wish there was a few added futures. I am not a huge fan of in camera effects and never use them so why they cared to add these effects like toy camera effect is beyond me. I love the HD video but I wish they would up the video quality like the magic firmware hack did. It is entirely possible to make the video quality better on these cameras. honestly why not have it shoot 2k raw cine scope. that would be cool. this camera has really revolutionized the video and photography industry. sense I got this camera a few days ago I could not put it down. In fact I got a lovely case for it but I use this camera so much that I have given up trying to put it in the case. I have the canon xha1 and I have to say this is my new favorite toy. I have not really got in to photography in so long that I had forgotten how fun it was and this camera makes photography fun again. I have shot a lot of film over my life and I truly can say this adds a whole other level being that it is digital. especially with the digital zoom focus assist feature. I do have a light meter but its nice having a camera that you don't have to rely on it all the time. I absolutely love the swivel screen and despite the mesurebaters out there I actually like this camera over its big brother the canon 5D mk 2. It makes me feel like I am shooting on 16mm film. the thing I hate about this camera but can be easily fixed with a firmware update is the AEB for the lcd. I can't turn that off and so I could never see what the true image will be before I shoot in live mode. very frustrating. but then again traditional photographers never had a lcd screen. :P one thing they don't have on this camera is a way to listen to your audio while recording. why in gods name would you have video and audio recording and not be able to listen to your audio. I know I am being picky but I really am not picking on the product but rather see room for improvement. Really canon is such a good company. some times I wish whey would keep up with consumer demands and make a FF video camera. if they can make these cameras FF DSLR cameras for under 3K I really don't see why they can't make a video camera with the FF sensor. enough of my rant just take it from me its a good camera for the price and I do not regret buying it for a second.

Very good upgrade

By gord from Calgary on 03/15/2011


Pros:

Easy To Use, Simple Controls/menu, Bright Lcd, Lightweight/portable, Good Battery Life, Excellent Image Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Recently upgraded from S2IS, S5IS, SX20 and SX30 (still have all of them), for better quality landscape pictures. 60D came with 18-135 lens and I purchased a 100-400 L series. First pictures with L lens at 400 mm were disappointing but it turned out the old tripod is not steady enough. After correcting that, images are crisp and clear. The reason for selecting the 60D is the vari-angle screen which I am used to- could not live without it once you get used to it. This camera fits in my hand perfectly and grip is amazing. As far as the camera body made of non-metal is not a big deal. Would not want to go back to cars all made from metal either. Only feature that was a bit disappointing is I cannot display the histogram and the artificial horizon on the screen at the same time. Maybe in the next firmware release?

More than the camera

Pros:

Easy To Use, Quiet, Solid Operation, Good Battery Life, Quick Start-up Time, Bright Lcd, Excellent Image Quality, Lightweight/portable

Bottom Line:

The other reviews tell what a great camera this is. I downloaded several RAW software demos to see if I could improve on Canon's DPP software supplied with the camera. DPP beat the "specialized" products hands down!

Excellent Starter DSLR for Serious Photographers

By swpilot from Phoenix, AZ on 03/13/2011


Pros:

Quiet, Quick Start-up Time, Solid Operation, Lightweight/portable, Excellent Image Quality, Good Battery Life, Nice Features/settings, Superior Build Quality, Bright Lcd, Simple Controls/menu

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am an avid fan of Canon and have owned Powershot S2 IS for the past 6 yrs and I must say this was a great step up DSLR for me. I am a pilot and love the lightweight and IS features of Canon over other brands. They simply are better. Along with the 67mm stock lens, all I needed was to purchase a wide-angle lens and a macro-lens to complete my kit. The LCD monitor is far superior and the buttons are just in right place for me. With a set of UV, Polarizer and Gradient filter and a lens hood, I am all set for landscape and macro photography. Well done Canon !!

A first impression: Great camera

By CanonFan from Spokane, Washington on 03/06/2011


Pros:

Nice Array Of Different Shooting Modes, Controls Are Logical And Fairly Easy To Use, Bright Lcd, Quick Start-up Time, Nice Features/settings, Excellent Image Quality, Lightweight/portable, Excellent Lcd Screen, Feels Great In The Hand, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought the 60D very recently, along with the 18-135 IS lens, and with one exception, I can say only good things about this camera. What follows is strictly an early impression, though it follows my extensive experience as a working photographer. Great build quality, ergonomics, functioning. As a former professional portrait and news photographer, I wouldn't recommend this camera for heavy pro use, but it's all the camera most amateur photographers should ever need. My only gripe: The small switch on the hot shoe that tells the camera whether there's a flash installed. Canon: Listen carefully and solve this problem! This little switch sits under a thin metal spring tab on the right side of the hot shoe, and after I first installed and then removed a flash, the metal tab didn't spring back up far enough to allow the switch to reset. Thus, the camera thought there was a flash installed in the shoe when there wasn't, and this disabled the pop-up flash. The only fix was to use a tiny slotted screw driver tip, a magnifying glass, a flashlight and a deft hand to get the screw driver tip under the metal tab and slightly bend the tab so it wouldn't sit on the switch when no flash was installed. The pop-up flash now works as it should. It was a frustrating thing that almost had me to the point of returning the camera for a replacement. Good thing I searched the Internet for a solution and found that other people had the same problem and the same solution. Solve this problem Canon ... PLEASE.

Fast Cameroso

By Roblife from Chicago,IL on 03/05/2011


Pros:

Good Battery Life, Excellent Image Quality, Superior Build Quality, Easy To Use, Quick Start-up Time

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Well this camera impress me for speed. I returned my t2i and got this instead and do i feel lucky for doing so. Big difference. With this camera I can keep clicking away and it takes the pictures. My t2i i had to sometimes miss a shot because it could not keep up. Also the quick access to settings is a plus. With the second lcd display you know your settings and can change them quickly. Though to be honest I always use the auto settings. WHo wants to be bothered with settings when you having fun just taking pictures. The lens that came with it has amazing range and its good enough for every day shooting. I am only starting to explore all the features of this camera. It will accommodate me while I grow my skills. Some one mention the good battery life I guess some people are hard to please. This is not good battery life its excellent battery life. I had it for like 2 weeks now and yet to recharge it. The battery is still going after like 200 to 400 shots.

Hard to fault

By Canonfan from Dayton, Ohio on 03/04/2011


Pros:

Lightweight/portable, Easy To Use, Superior Build Quality, Excellent Image Quality

Cons:

Hard To Find Much Wrong

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It's hard to fault this camera, especially for the price. I wanted something like the 7D, but with a little less weight and a bit more compact for traveling, and with a bit more control and "quality" than the T2i (I have all three cameras). The 60D feels very nice, quite similar in feel to the 7D. I've been using the 60D mainly with the 15mm-85mm EF-S lens, but it works very nicely with the excellent 70-200mm F/2.8 IS II lens. Pictures are well saturated, crisp, not over-sharpened, and the 60D handles a wide range of exposures well, from 30-second night exposures to 1/4000 sec sports photos without any problems. Noise is well controlled up to ISO 800, begins to become noticeable at ISO 1600. I don't recommend ISO 3200+ for anything but low quality snap-shots. ISO 100 shots are absolutely stunning at all exposure durations. Battery life is extremely impressive. This is a serious alternative to the 7D, especially for the weight conscious photographer who doesn't want to give up the control features of the 7D. Video is up to par with the 7D. Highly recommended!

Pleasantly Surprised

By dee2too from Omaha on 03/04/2011


Pros:

Excellent Image Quality, Superior Build Quality, Nice Features/settings, Good Fit To My Hands, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

An upgrade from a Canon A540. Controls are similar. It is a very forgiving camers. I used a 35mm SLR a bit, a Canon FTb. I sold a few photos, so I could say I am a free-lancer. So with that stated, I can say the DSLR is much more flaxible and forgiving than the SLR. I was wondering if the camera would be enough to satisfy my interests, but it seems to be plenty. And there are always accesories. I have done quite a bit of trials, close-up, telephoto and so on in the three months I have owned it. The camera can do anything I have tried to do. The resolution and the flexibility of the viewscreen are a very good feature with the camera's capabilities. The software is excellant. I have interfaced the camera with my computer and taken shots directly from the computer. I am still working out the details of the wireless link, but I expect good things. The big detail to work out is that I have a netbook with a high definition 10.1" screen that I would very much like to use for an interface. The screen resolution does not satisfy the Canon software, which is surprising since it uses a much smaller screen on board.

Couldn't Be Happier

By JK from Minneapolis, MN on 02/28/2011


Pros:

Good Battery Life, Vari Angle Lcd, Simple Controls/menu, Easy To Use, Superior Build Quality, Nice Features/settings, Excellent Image Quality

Cons:

None So Far

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I just got the 60D in the last few weeks as an upgrade from my Powershot S5is (which I will keep and still use as it's an excellent camera and very portable). I wanted to upgrade to my first DSLR for better sports photos of my kids. They are in gymnastics so flash photography is not allowed during the meets. My S5is takes great pics, but just can't get the low noise, fast motion sports pics in lower light with no flash. My father and brother both have Rebel XTI's and get some great pics with those. The new vari angle LCD on the 60D was what finally pushed me over into the SLR world. I had considered the Rebel T2i, but I really love the vari angle screen on my S5is and I didn't want to wait for the T3i, so I went with the 60D and couldn't be more pleased. I'm already getting great lower light shots with the 18-135mm kit lens, but I also bought a 50mm f1.8 prime to really capture lower light shots with no flash. I'm very impressed with the low light abilities of the camera / lenses. The burst speed and continuous shooting speed of this camera are great for me as well. Plenty fast for me and a good compromise between the T2i and 7D (which seemed like overkill for my first SLR and didn't have the vari angle). I found this camera very easy to get used to. Yes, it's more complicated than my S5is, but I read the manual and I've found the controls / menus to be very intuitive. With a little help from the manual, I was already experimenting with shutter speed priority and aperture priority modes on my second day of shooting and getting some cool variations on my shots. I like the exposure bracketing feature also. This thing has just been a blast to shoot with!!! Seems like a camera a novice can use right away and get great shots with auto, but that you can quickly grow with as you get more experience. Video shooting is great also! Auto focus in video seems to hunt a bit until it locks in, but I don't really care, as the vari angle screen makes it so easy to cradle the camera that I just switch to manual focus while shooting video anyway. It's quicker, less noisy and is really easy with just little bit of practice. I will be surprised if Canon doesn't add the vari angle screen to more of their DSLR's in the next generation. This thing gets great "artsy" video shots that I could never get with my camcorder, and I can just use my regular high def camcorder for family event shots where I want continuous autofocus and the depth of field a smaller sensor gives. Congrats Canon, on a great DSLR for newbies and experienced users alike! I just love this camera / video camera (because it really is both), and your addition of a vari angle screen to one of your DSLR models was the final piece of the puzzle that got me to upgrade from my S5is to a DSLR. I'm having so much fun making new memories!

Good DSLR for Advanced Amateurs

By Anonymous from Undisclosed on 02/26/2011


Pros:

Quiet, Easy To Use, Quick Start-up Time, Good Battery Life, Nice Features/settings, Lightweight/portable, Excellent Image Quality

Cons:

Price

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

i bought this camera three months ago together with the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. I haven't had any DSLR before, just a Canon PowerShot S90 (good camera too!). I already used my S90 on M, so i directly set my 60D to M too. i have used this camera mostly for nature/landscape photos but also did some indoor photography with it. i intend to use this camera on my travel. the camera is easy to use and if you're already used to the handling of other canon cameras you'll get used to it very fast. the camera produces very good image quality (at least if you're using a good lens). i have taken some awesome pictures with it. I try to always stay on ISO 100, but even if i go up with it, the image quality stays very good. the vary-angle display is a very nice addition which has been missing from canon-cameras for too long! i hope that it'll find it's way to all other new (higher-level) canon DSLRs. though i'm only using this display to review my pictures i really like it that i don't have my nose on the display but can just throw a short gaze to the left to see the picture. also the battery life is amazing, i can take up to 800-1000 pictures (without internal flash / with external flash) with it before i have to recharge it! what surprised/disappointed me was, that i have several images where the focus was a bit off which makes a very good image look not so good. i'm not sure whether it's a problem from the lens or from the camera, it only happened at a weekend when i was out at the sea and it was pretty cold. i'll ask the shop about it. i have now added a Speedlite 850EX II to my equipment as the built in flash always gave me a shadow from my lens on my pictures (the flash isn't high enough) and the flash isn't too strong. I'm very happy with that setup now, it gave me some nice outdoor shots (people in front of a dark sky at the sea). i plan to get a better lens for low-light situations too, maybe a EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM or a EF 35mm f/1.4L USM (saddly there's no IS edition of either of them). one last word about the new mode-dial: that push-button is nice, it keeps the dial on place (most of the times...). but why isn't it possible, that i can do a whole turn-around? the dial is full of those amateur-modes, so if i want to go from M to video i have to turn it by ~300degrees. canon, please do this better with the next generation of cameras! i can definitely recommend this camera to anyone who wants to get his hands on a DSLR and wants to do some serious photography. i'm looking forward to a 5D Mark III with the vary-angle display and the FullHD video-functionality from the 60D and a Dual (or maybe Quad?) Digic V!

Outstanding instrument.

By Revco from Bloomfield Hills, MI on 02/24/2011


Pros:

Bright Lcd, Easy To Use, Excellent Image Quality, Quiet, Simple Controls/menu, Solid Operation, Superior Build Quality, Nice Features/settings, Good Battery Life, Quick Start-up Time

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm a novice, but decided to invest in a proper camera to try and grow my skills. I was looking for a camera that would be a good foundation on which to build. I played around with a few different cameras and settled on the 60D. It feels solid in your hands, the ergonomics are great, and it's packed with features that will be available when my skill set needs them. Right out of the box, it took one of the best pics I've ever taken, even on auto mode. Its like being shown a whole new world. I couldn't be any happier with my purchase, and am constantly amazed by the pics it takes. Buy with confidence, you won't be disappointed!

Video Review

By fotovideo from Boston, MA on 02/22/2011


Pros:

Bright Lcd, Good Battery Life, Simple Controls/menu

Cons:

Moire Issue, Missing Features/settings, Poor Image Quality, No Adjustable Audio When Video Recording, No On Screen Levels While Recording

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Moire is a serious issue. If you intend on shooting a lot of video, you will have shots that could be considered not usable because of the horrible moire issues. I own the camera and use it every day. I'm incredibly impressed with the photos. The video would also be incredible, if there were no moire issues. Yes, Canon, you fixed the audio levels problem on the T2i, and promote that highly in your literature for the 60D. Too bad you don't let me see or adjust this vital setting while recording video, rendering the feature virtually useless. On-Screen levels, and adjusting during recording needs to be in future firmware. The noise floor on the audio input also renders it useless for basic audio capture. If you use 2nd system Audio, then this is not an issue for you. So if you would like to get high quality audio recordings, it will not be through this input jack. Again, if you only shoot photos, this may not be as big of an issue for you, however for those of you who want to be shooting at least 1/2 of the time video, I would look elsewhere.

The kit lens needs help

By terryw64 from Little Rock, Arkansas on 02/17/2011


Pros:

Nice Features/settings, Good Battery Life, Bright Lcd, Solid Operation

Cons:

Poor Kit Lens 18-135mm

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My 60D came with the 18-135mm kit lens. Unfortunately, I took my camera back twice, thinking that there was an issue with the camera. The issue is actually with the lens. The tech at where I bought it stated that the problem looked like a decentering issue. Unfortunately, I can't afford any secondary lenses, so I'm stuck with a poor lens until I can afford another one. I could send the lens in, but then I wouldn't be able to take any photos. No-win situation. .

I have owned Canon cameras my whole life and this is the best I've ever had. I am big into videography and this HDSLR delivers. I placed this on a CamCaddie Scorpion the first day and headed up to the local mountain and shot some amazing footage of my bros shredding. The wireless flash is also another amazing feature. I can now place my 580 EX II and 2 430 EX II on their shoes and have great lighting all around. This makes for great night time action shots. Over all I am extremely pleased with the camera and its capabilities. P.S. BG-E9 Battery Grip is a must. What a great way to shoot vertically!!!

Very suprised by the quality of the photos at iso 3200, with the 18-135 kit lens. I have a 40d and use a 24-105L resulting in excellent photos, but only up to iso 400, and camera is not good in low light. The 60d is very good in low light, no flash and at high iso, up to 3200. Canon has created a winner with the 60d.

Great camera with really nice features. The photos are absolutely amazing and the video mode as well. It feels solid and expensive. As you know Canon Has been around for a very long time and I have owned and used numerous of their products, and I've always been happy with it. So if you buy a Canon product - whatever it might be I am positive that you will like it and for that matter enjoy it just as much as I do. The eos rebel t2i is also another great camera.

I got the 60D as an upgrade from my XSI. I have been very happy with performance. I thought the flip/twist screen would be something I would not use. I use it more than I figured. I havebeen very happy with this camera. I wish it was faster in live mode.

Noise issues

By Magic Marker from Hobe Sound. FL on 01/28/2011


Pros:

Good Image Quality, Solid Operation, Quiet, Nice Features/settings, Quick Start-up Time, Easy To Use

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the camers!... but experienced extensive noise in raw images opened in Photoshop CS5. Talked to Canon rep and he advised opening in Digital Photo Professional as Photoshop has software which may increase noise levels when opening a Canon CR2 file. Worked much better! Canon tech support is really good! Thanks!!!!

Missing Important Feature

By Braytie from Mesa, AZ on 01/27/2011


Pros:

Excellent Image Quality, Bright Lcd

Cons:

Missing Features/settings, Poor Build Quality

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have been anxiously waiting for the next upgrade to the EOS 50D. When I saw the new 60D with 18 megapixels plus video, it sounded great. The camera body is lighter and feels cheaper than the 50D. But the most important feature that I use 99.9% of the time has been eliminated. That is the A-DEP mode. It has been on all previous models and has become a vital focusing aid for landscape scenes. I am very disappointed that Canon chose to drop it. Come on Canon, include it back on the 70D!

My girlfriend surprised ...

By Nelson from San Francisco on 01/18/2011


Pros:

Easy To Use, Great Features, Professional Quality

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My girlfriend surprised me with the EOS 60D EF-S 18-135 IS Kit as a gift on Christmas day. This camera is great! In my opinion, this camera is easy to get use to and will make you feel like a Pro. The high quality pictures are excellent, very professional and the HD videos are way beyond expectations. The LCD monitor is very nice, very clear, very crispy and the EF-S 18-135 lens is very very good. I was expecting this camera to be good, but the 60D surpassed expectations and i am amazed. The 60D is a bit heavy, but a man of my size can handle it =). Overall, this camera is great to have and it's on the professional level.

Fast Performer Overall, Variangle Lcd, Great Budled Software, Silent Mode Shooting, Water/dust Sealings, Clear Pentaprism Viewfinder, Battery Life Is Very Good., Great Video Features, Fast Reliable Pd Auto Focus, Wireless Flash

Cons:

Buttons Lack Click Feedback, 720p Has Lots Of Moire Artifacts, Annoying Way To Acces Video, Live View Auto Focus Is Slow., Doesn't Have Af Calibration, Wired Remote Can Not Start Video, No Wb Or Raw Status On Top Lcd, Video Crop Mode Is Only 4:3 Vga, 18mp Is Overkill Rather Have Better Low Light Per, No Wb Button

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Its has been a while since I have been very excited about a Camera. But here comes the 60D and it makes me very happy. This camera is packed with so many features that most people are not really aware of, not understand or appreciate. It pretty much has all the things that you would ever need and then some. The 60D basically gives you all the modern tools not only for Photography but also for Video and it gives them with plenty of user creative control. What you are missing with the 60D package are just extreme premium features that are not really needed for like 95% of situations. Also, compared with other brands I think Canon still give you the most for less money with pretty much all their camera models. The 60D feature set and performance is so good and extensive that I rather tell you the few little niggles that bother me: 1. The issue that bothers me the most is the slow, cumbersome and painful way to access video. You have to go to the other extreme of the Mode Dial to start shooting video. I worry about the durability of that Mode Dial given all the rotation that has to go on between Av, M and Video. The solution or workaround to this would be simply to register Video into C mode, but currently the camera won't let you. 2. The Video Crop/Digital Zoom mode is fantastic, but is only 640x480. I needs to be 1080p,720p or at least WVGA to match the main 16:9 formats. 3. Manual Mode + AutoISO lacks exposure compensation. 4. The only button that can be programmed is the Set button. I would like to have at least another programmable button, the Erase button seems like good candidate that went to waste. There are other smaller issues but those are not really important. But don't take me wrong, as it is, this camera is like a 4.6 out of 5. If Canon can at least update the firmware to allow users to register Video in C mode and allow a 16:9 Video Zoom crop, even if it is only WVGA, that would make this the most perfect camera I've ever had. So I say, The Canon 60D is a Highly Recommended ! If you are an advance user that would take advantage of the many things this camera has to offer, the 60D is the one.

Canon EOS 60D

By Hawaiian from Undisclosed on 01/09/2011


Pros:

Quiet, Quick Start-up Time, Easy To Use, Bright Lcd, Excellent Image Quality, Solid Operation, Superior Build Quality

Cons:

Heavy/bulky, Short Battery Life, Missing Features/settings, Complicated Controls/menu

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This camera is superb. The only problem is that focusing on the live view takes a little while and that the images sometimes take a long time to focus even in regular view. Also, the camera is bulky and heavy but perhaps this is why it takes such nice pictures. Pics come out dark sometimes but other then that, this is THE camera to purchase.

My First DSLR

By Alex from Philadelphia on 01/03/2011


Pros:

Solid Operation, Quick Start-up Time, Nice Features/settings, Simple Controls/menu, Superior Build Quality, Easy To Use, Excellent Image Quality

Cons:

Missing Features/settings, Slow Af In Live View, Poor Af In Movie Mode

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I received my 60D as a (very generous) christmas present, and I am extremely impressed. I was looking for a good video dSLR to help document my senior thesis project for college, and the 60D came just in the nick of time. The vari-angle screen is incredible and very helpful for capturing steadier video, since you can hold the camera more comfortably to help reduce vibration. It also comes in handy while taking photos, although the auto focusing in live view struggles a bit to find focus before taking the picture. I work retail, and I was shooting at a store party, and I got some great overhead shots using the LCD, but I had to anticipate the moment a little more than I usually have to. I have to say that is about my only complaint with the camera though. The pictures I have taken with both the kit 18-135mm lens and the 50mm f1.8 have been superb, and it has barely left my side since I got it. The plastic body is a bit of an odd choice, but it feels very rugged, and I feel alright carrying it around. For someone who knows they have the photography itch, but doesn't have the dough to drop on the 7D, or anyone looking for a great video SLR, and you know you want a Canon, look no further. This is definitely the first (contemporary) step of many I hope to take with Canon in the world of photography.

Articulated LCD got me

By Sirby from Edmonds,WA on 01/02/2011


Pros:

Great Articulated Lcd, Simple Controls/menu, Good Battery Life, Superior Build Quality, Quick Start-up Time, Bright Lcd, Excellent Image Quality, Nice Features/settings

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have wanted to move up to a DSLR for years but I have been spoiled by the articulating LCD display on my Canon A640 and prior other brand camera. When I finally found a Canon DSLR with the big bright LCD screen I was sold. The camera is heavier than I am used to but that is to be expected coming from a point and shooter A640. Several comments about the 60D not having a metal body make me smile. I learned that this camera body isn't just "plastic", but a special type of polycarbonate which has many characteristics of a cast magnesium frame but has one big difference. This frame will not block radio signals out to the flash or from your Wye-Fi card sending wireless data to your tablet/laptop. Very cool. The image quality is superb. It is fast and quiet. The video quality is unbelievable. The menu system is quick to learn and you can download tutorial videos, store them on the SD card and view them in the field in the camera. If you think you wont use the flip screen, you will be surprised to find how convenient it is to get the camera down low without getting your clothes dirty, or to get the video shot over the heads of the people in front of you in a crowd. The 18-135 kit lens doen't do macro very well so that is my next lens. I love this 60D.

60d and 24-105mm

By Smiley from Pittsburgh, PA on 01/01/2011


Pros:

Looks Good On Paper

Cons:

Flash With 24mm-105mm Doesn't Work

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I just purchased the 60d and the Canon L series 24mm-105mm lens. My first shots were indoors and all using the flash. The camera worked great but all of the pictures had a dark semi-circle in the middle of the bottom of the image. After doing some experiments the problem was clearly the lens blocking the built-in flash on the 60d. Removing the lens hood helped but the shadow was still there. Comparing the 60d flash to my other Canon SLRs the 60d flash looks like it is mounted lower, leading to the problem. With problems this bad on a mid-range zoom I don't think that many people will be happy with this lens/body combination.

I could not be happier with the 60D's performance, speed, and quality. I LOVE this camera and would very highly recommend it.

Amazing Camera

By Blepfo from Potomac, MD on 12/27/2010


Pros:

Nice Features/settings, Quick Start-up Time, Superior Build Quality, Excellent Image Quality, Easy To Use, Good Battery Life, Bright Lcd

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've seen numerous reviews badmouthing the 60D merely because it deviates from general characteristics associated with the xxD line of DSLRS (I.E: xxD's used to have magnesium alloy construction & lens micro-adjustment). And I will admit that it would be nice to have the superior build quality of a magnesium alloy body (although the 60D feels very durable while still being lightweight) and I personally wouldn't know the first thing about micro-adjustment, so the 60D's lack of it didn't daunt me. Basically; If you're looking for a 50D with a new sensor & processor, go for the 7D (although the 60D and 7D do share an almost identical 18MP CMOS sensor...) However, if you want a lightweight, durable, ergonomic mid-range DSLR with fantastic image quality, go with the 60D. It feels much more comfortable to hold than a Rebel DSLR (due to it's larger size), but not much heavier (though still heavy enough to balance the weight of a relatively heavy lens). This camera is very comfortable to hold and my only complaint with having it on a shoulder/neck strap all day is that the strap supplied with the camera is terrible. I purchased an "OP-Tech pro-loop strap" to replace the stock one supplied by Canon, and would feel confident saying I could walk around for many hours with this camera (and a medium weight lens) around my neck. When it comes to image quality, it depends on the lens you're using. However, even on the kit lenses I have (18-135 & 55-250), this camera takes very crisp images with great colour reproduction and low noise. You can confidently take images at ISO speeds of up and including 1600 without worrying about noise (although at that level, I would suggest noise reduction in post-production). I really haven't tried any ISOs above that level other than the "boost" ISO of 12800, at which the images, while still viewable, aren't print-quality. The video quality is phenomenal. Even at adequately high ISOs, videos are cinema-quality. This camera lacks auto-focus during video (it does have it, but using it while recording really screws things up; it makes everything brighter for a moment while it unfocuses & refocuses). However, with a little practice, you can manually focus videos quickly and easily. Still, I wouldn't use this camera to record swiftly moving subjects. The in-camera menus are very easy to navigate (even with the new control-pad that wasn't in previous cameras of the xxD line). After using the 40D once, I feel like the control pad is easier to use than the little joystick (that the 40D had). My only complaint about it is that unless you're looking at the screen, you won't be able to tell if something has happened due to the smoothness of the control pad (it would be nice if it "clicked" or something (not an electronic noise; the way the control wheel clicks as you rotate it). The articulated LCD screen is very useful. I've used it when shooting over crowds (you can tilt the screen down and hold the camera above your head) and when shooting/recording yourself. There are two kinds of auto-focusing in live-view mode; live-view autofocus, and quick autofocus. For quick autofocus, the camera temporarily exits live-view mode to auto-focus as it would if you were using the viewfinder; quickly. Live view auto-focus is very slow and noisy. I mainly shoot through the viewfinder (not live-view mode), where the auto-focus is very fast and reliable. Overall, I would recommend this camera to any photography enthusiast. It has great ergonomics, amazing image quality, and an awesome feature set.

Canon 60D - My first DSLR

By Mak14 from Denver, CO on 12/24/2010


Pros:

Superior Build Quality, Nice Features/settings, Quick Start-up Time, Solid Operation, Simple Controls/menu, Good Battery Life, Easy To Use, Excellent Image Quality, Bright Lcd

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first DSLR. Somehow I happen to like Canon brand, so I preferred Canon for DSLR. I have seen and used Canon 550D for very short period and was about to buy the one. Then I came across 60D. Following are the reasons why I purchased 60D over 550D or 7D (maybe): 1. Kit lens is 18-135mm and telephoto one 55-250mm (So I got better package deal) 2. Very good battery life (Spec approx 1600 shots per recharge). I really need not purchase spare battery. 3. Articulated screen. 4. Frame rate of 5.3 fps. 5. Though it is not magnesium body, build quality is superb (You can feel it while using it). 6. Solid feel when held in hand 7. Very bright and clear LCD 8. Price compared to 7D or other brand in this category (Image and video quality is same or better). Other common good points are image and video quality, lot of features. etc. I quickly got used to controls/menu, maybe because I had never used any other DSLR before. I cannot differentiate, but I love these controls now. Following things I didn't like about camera: 1. Not able to zoom and focus duirng movie shooting as it captures lot of noise of lens. Auto focus is clearly visible on captured video. I am sure if USM lens could resolve this issue, but out of my budget at the moment. 2. Frame rate for continuous shooting could have been better (at least 7 fps) 3. I like 9-point cross type viewfinder screen, but sometime wish could have more points available. :) 4. Camera is pretty quiet, but HD video captures some camera noise. Issue should be resolved with the use of external mic. 5. Little heavy (better build??) Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase (price/value combination). I have learned a lot of things while using this camera (of course I had to go through lots of online material) and have been taking lots of pictures and experimenting with them.

Good Battery Life, Nice Features/settings, Simple Controls/menu, Superior Build Quality, Easy To Use, Bright Lcd, Quick Start-up Time, Solid Operation, Excellent Image Quality, Quiet

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been wanting a Canon EOS DLSR camera for a year or longer. Until now, I have been a point and shoot photographer. Anytime, I was able to get a good shot, I would credit my success to luck and God. Now I can say that God has let me buy this camera so I won't need as much luck. I purchased my EOS 60D at Best Buy with the 18-135mm Lens Kit. It is everything I expected it to be and more. It is quiet enough to capture candid shots of my children without giving away my intentions as well as taking brilliant pictures of animals in their natural habitat as long as I stay hidden they don't know I am there. The instruction manual is easy to read and understand, which is a bonus itself. It takes time to read through the large amount of information, but there is something to learn on every page. This camera may cost a lot of money, but if you are someone who enjoys taking pictures and showing them off, it is worth every cent. God Bless you all.

I had purchased Canon Powershot few years back and I always had problems with the image quality. So, I wanted to upgrade to a DSLR. I didn't want to buy anything in the entry level or high level - I found this camera to be in the mid-range with the price that I can afford. Having a 3 year old daughter, I always take lots of pics.. the image quality is absolutely the BEST. My daughter and my wife love the pics a lot. I'll definitely recommend this camera to anyone.

near perfect

By G from Long Island, NY on 12/09/2010


Pros:

Simple Controls/menu, Good Battery Life, Lightweight/portable, Nice Features/settings, Excellent Image Quality, Bright Lcd, Easy To Use, Superior Build Quality

Cons:

Could Use More Frames Per Second

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After owning the Rebel 400 and 500 the 60D now fits my hand perfectly. I never use a tripod so with the Canon 70-200 L4 IS and a 1.4 telextender I wanted to keep my weight to a reasonable level. For this reason,Irrespective of cost, I decided against the 7D. [The flip screen and video are total non factors and will not be used.] High ISO gives me about another stop to play with. Battery reserve as a percentage is great. Just wish it shot 6.5 to 7.0 frames per second for my birding and college soccer shooting. No problem with not having magnesium but it would be nice if it were weatherproof.

I started 15 years ago with the digital cameras. Canon has given me the chance to take it to another level. I hope that many more people will loiok into this camera for a purchase of a lifetime.

Best Upgrade from Rebel - Im Glad didnt buy 7D

By alizahid82 from Chicago, IL on 11/24/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I owned a canon t2i for about 4 months and shot video mostly. i loved the image and video quality on the 18mp sensor but the size was too light and small for me. I absolutely love the 60D the size and weight is perfect. FOr me its way better than 7D and it doesn't feel plasticky at all. The improved ISO range from T2i is also very good i really missed it in the T2i and the new layout of the buttons is amazing too. The swivel screen and manual audio gain control definitely make it the best for video work. Great camera and a really high quality Kit lens too. Im Glad i didn't spend more money for 7d.

Super Rebel?

By Astro1645 from Utah on 11/20/2010


Pros:

Good Value Over A T2i, Excellent Iq, Excellent Battery Life, Rich Feature Set, Excellent Articulating Screen, Lively Performance, Very Good Iso Performance, Improved Metering, Mode Lock Button

Cons:

A Repositioned Camera Line, Not As Quick As Previos 50d And 40d At 5.3 Fps, Missing A Few Pro Features From Previous Xxd Line, Sd Cards Not As Fast As Many Cf Cards

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Lets be clear, this camera is not a straight line upgrade from the 50D so if thats what you are expecting you may be surprised or disappointed. Canon is clearly repositioning the xxD line. The xxD line has always been in a bit of an odd space. Not an entry level DSLR, where Canon has the XS and T2i, which really isnt entry level any more, but not quite a pro camera, so what is it really? The 60D lacks some of the features needed to be considered a real Semi-Pro or ProSumer camera, whatever that is; however there are plenty of people doing pro work with Rebels, in theory a less capable camera series. Its ultimately about the pictures and here the 60D can shine with the best of them. IQ is terrific, on par with the more expensive 7D and little brother T2i due to the same 18mp sensor and Digic 4, high ISO performance while not revolutionary is very good, FPS at 5.3 is quick and good enough for most sports action and more. For a serious Enthusiast who wants a lot of features, better build and better performance (FPS, better metering, better battery life, etc.) than a Rebel this maybe the camera. Focusing is quick and accurate, the camera handles well in use, and controls are well positioned and easy to understand if youve had any other Canon. This is clearly an upgrade over the T2i, a very capable camera in its own right. In fact unless youre doing really demanding Pro work you probably dont need more than this, really. If you dont need 9FPS and lens micro adjustment, metal body and the higher price tag of the 7D but want more than the Rebels look at the 60D. The articulating screen alone may make this purchase worthwhile; meanwhile you have a top notch Enthusiast camera capable of pro level results.

Very satisfied!

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I spent a lot of time researching DSLR"s before replacing my unamed brand of DSLR. I decided to switch to Canon and purchase the 60D. This camera outperforms my older more expensive DSLR that im giving to my daughter. The auto white balance is amazingly accurate,whites are white in Flourescent lighting,skin tones are good too. I love the lcd screen its easy to see in daylight and the swivelly/swirlly LCD makes it easy to take photos at difficult angles. Im a paraplegic in a wheelchair and this lcd screen greatly increases my ability to take photos up high or down low, i love it. The 60D has a solid well built feel but its light enough to carry around for long periods. Great job Canon!

As a result of participation in a camera club, I decided to up grade my digital camera. I bought a Canon 60D camera and it is living up to all my expectations. I can now go head to head with all the other members when we have a competition or go on a photo shoot.

surprised

By Corky from Carter Lake, Iowa on 11/09/2010


Pros:

Can't Say Enough About It.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I went from a 30D than 40D and now a 60D and I Just loved them all but each one has something that the other one doesn't have and I do hope that this is the last one.. I was very impressed with the part that you can take a picture without moving the ISO and not use flash all the time and the picture is grrrrrrreat looking. As for all of the camera things go, itis superb Handles nicely, wonderful camera.

Aside from underexposure issues...

By Baj from SW Ontario, Canada on 10/31/2010


Pros:

Excellent Image Quality On Par With Peers, Very Nice Lcd Resolution & Nice Vari-angle Option, Very Nice Having Auto Iso - & Expandable To 6400, Nice To Have Video Vs 50d

Cons:

Buttons Have Poor Tactile Feel Vs Even Rebels, Lower Specs & Performance Vs Rival Peers, Auto Iso In M Mode Underexposes Consistently!, Deciding If Ai Servo Is Same Or Worse Vs. 50d

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm coming from an EOS Xsi and then 50D and the image quality of the 60D s of course excellent - as like its little sister and big brother - the 18mp T2i & 7D. My only frustration is Auto ISO in Manual Mode - it consistently underexposes! Canon needs to either boost exposure for Auto ISO in M Mode - OR - Please give us Exposure Compensation in M Mode - such an easy firmware fix!

Great DSLR!

By Ikir from San Francisco, CA on 10/28/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used the 60D for a few weeks and I am very happy with the performance. Although it's not a magnesium body, the body is still pretty solid. The articulating screen is great. The locked mode dial is actually a good feature. The initial kit 18-135mm is a good start. I have been a Canon user for years and I will stick to Canon's!

Great camera!

By GoUsfBulls from Undisclosed on 10/23/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm very happy with the purchase. It falls nicely in between the T2i and 7d - both in price and features. The camera feels solid construction-wise and I'm happy with the ergonomic design. The deciding factors for me for going with the 60d over the T2i were: - All 9 focus points are cross-point - Faster maximum shutter speed - More shots per second I saw the articulating screen more as an extra bonus. It's come in handy when taking photos over objects (crowds, fence at a baseball game, etc) and in getting low perspective shots of animals/kids. For memory cards I recommend the Transcend 32GB class 10 - it works perfectly for both photo and video with the 60d.

Excellent for Video

By tmudirector from Chicago, IL on 10/17/2010


Pros:

Excellent Video

Cons:

Wish Slow Motion Could Be In 1080p!

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am a film director and just bought this camera to shoot a commercial for a VERY large and well known car company. We made the decision to shoot on Canon DSLR's not only for budget reasons, but for the amazing quality of HD video they can deliver in an extremely small, portable package. I started testing 7D's and 5DMKII's earlier this year, and when this commercial came up, it took me a long, long time to finally decide on which camera to buy for myself to use on this and many other future projects. I'm used to shooting on 35mm film and high end digital cinema cameras, and overall image quality is very important to me. After an internal struggle pulling me towards the 5DMKII for the larger sensor and all the benefits that come with it, I ended up choosing the 60D mainly for the articulating LCD screen, and MAN did I make the right choice! We shot with 1 5DMKII, 3 7D's, 1 T2i and my new 60D, and even though the 5DMKII has the bigger sensor and the 7D's have dual processors, more than HALF the shots in the final commercial came from my new 60D! The LCD made it possible for me to operate shots that I would never have gotten as smoothly on the other cameras, and I'm not just talking about extreme low or high angles. What finally made me thrilled with my choice is that you can barely tell the difference between the 60D and the "better" cameras in the finished commercial, which still amazes me. I've taken some stills with it as well, and they look great to my very picky eye. If you are looking for a DSLR for high end video in a small package, I would STRONGLY recommend the 60D.

EOS 60D from want to be to pro !

By Marcos Pinheiro from SAO PAULO on 10/14/2010


Pros:

Moving 3" Screen, Weight, Fast, Control Buttons At Hand, Menu

Cons:

No Eye Control, Multi Layer Focus, Focus In Zoom

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

regarding the fact it does not have eye control, focusing should be easier......the image on the rotating LCD screen is great ! The initial kit is a great deal , the lense is good enough to start to play with the camera. But I think it should come with a 15-200mm maybe. I recomend this camera because builty quality and perfomance.....the only think I really miss from my old EOS 33 or 7ne is the best Eye control ever !

Lcd Screen, Size And Weight Handling, Control Layout, In Camera Raw Processing, Picture Quality, In Camera Menu Options

Cons:

Would Have Liked Same Fps As 50d

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Better than I expected, and better than the "specs" show. This camera is very nicely done. Great build quality, and that is the first thing that commanded my attention. Pictures are sharp and the camera seems responsive and relatively fast.

Great Purchase

By BillTexas from McAllen, Texas on 10/11/2010


Pros:

Great Images, Fits My Have Well Narrow Hand Long Fingers, I Like The Adjustable Screen, Feels Good In My Hands, Ease Of Use

Cons:

None For Me

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I got my 60D about three weeks ago and have taken over 200 pictures. I have never been happy with my XSi. I am ecstatic about the results with the 60D. Most pictures have required no editing and others very little. I have two A-1's with plastic bodies. They have been banged around for years and there have been no problems. The plastic body is not a concern to me. I like the monitor and have used it a couple of times. It's a great protection for the screen when the camera is not being used. My opinion here is that the DIGIC 4 processor is so much better than that DIGIC in the XSi that this is what makes the difference. I am using the camera just as it came out of the box but have upped the contrast and saturation one level. I was about to go back to film and probably would have if I did not have a G10 with DIGIC 4. I was about to buy the XTI. I am glad I went with the 60D.

Excellent versatile camera

By Thomachen from Chicago, IL on 10/10/2010


Pros:

Full-hd 1080p 30fps Video, Star Rating, Great Image Quality, Full Swivel Lcd Screen

Cons:

Plastic Body, Expensive, No Continuous Af In Video, Video Quality Not The Best

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far I like this camera very much, Love the fact that it has the side hinged fully articulating LCD screen which is very useful for my needs. Image quality is superb, Video quality could have been better with continuous Auto-focus and a better memory saving compression software. The only let down on this camera is that it made of cheap feeling plastic and canon wants metal price for it.

Having used the 60D ...

By Bear from New York on 10/08/2010


Pros:

Nice Control Layout, Excellent Image Quality, Great Iso Performance, Amazing Clarity

Cons:

Autofocus Slower In Live View

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Having used the 60D +18-135mm kit lens for a few weeks, I have to say I'm very happy with my purchase. It has a nice size and weight to it and feels solidly built. Image Quality is Excellent even with the kit lens! Would love to fit an L lens on it next. Auto focus is fast and responsive when using the viewfinder but as a previous review said it slows a little when using live view. ISO performance is great as well. That said, the monitor is one of the nicest and clearest i've seen, and the fact that it articulates makes it perfect for macro photography. Very satisfied that I chose the 60D

Fell short

By Cortland from Boston on 10/07/2010


Pros:

Great Images, Moveable Lcd

Cons:

Cheap Plastic Body, Lcd May Break Easily On The Plastic Body

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have been a loyal fan of Canon back to the days of film. I own the 5D mark IIs and owned most of the D's back to the 10D. I have been looking forward to the 60D. But a plastic body? My cameras do get bumped around and I do travel a lot. And if the purpose is to lighten the weight, I would get a Rebel. I do need to know that my camera is durable... and I don't want to see my lens mount or camera body cracked... particularly with the long lens that I use. Canon did not take the semi-pro to pro market seriously. That being said, the camera and the screen is a very good performer, clear images, great feel to the camera too. But again, how easily will the plastic hinge break on the LCD screen? And how much to repair it? If it took another $50 to the price to make it medal, it should have been done. I will be returning the camera.

HDSLR

By Dr Wombat from Hong Kong on 10/04/2010


Pros:

Image Quality

Cons:

Lacks E1 Plugin

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I chose the 60D over the 7D as my first HDSLR video camera because of the articulated screen. I'm particularly impressed by the image quality, particularly when using f/1.4-2 lenses. It's taken me a few days to get used to the Menu adjustments in Manual mode, but they are logical and clear with practice. The plastic body doesn't worry me (it's Polycarbonate I think) as I don't plan to take it down the Amazon and I guess it's lighter then alternatives. I'll continue to use my Canon AF-X1 for quick off the mark documentary/news shoots; the 60D is more suitable for shoots where there's time to set up carefully, adjust lighting, etc. I'm disappointed that the E1 plugin for Final Cut Pro is not available (yet?) For professional use this is pretty essential.

good job,canon

By rex from Las Vegas, NV on 10/04/2010


Pros:

Full Featured, Locking Menu Knob, Swivel Screen

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this model for the swivel screen. Already owning the 7D and 5DmII, as well as a rebel T2i, I was looking to purchase an slr with a swivel screen for off angle, ans macro shots....and there it was. I also like the locking button in the functions knob, which is something the 7D lacks, and has cost me dearly in the past. I didn't buy this camera to replace any of my others, and therefore I cannot compare it. I do think it will be a useful tool for my outdoor hobbies. It is both light and small. I love it

An Amazing Camera

By Photoshopeth from Columbus, OH on 10/04/2010


Pros:

Uses Sd Cards, Fast Shutter Speed, Usefull Articulating Screen, Long Battery Life, Amazing Clarity

Cons:

No Continuous Video Af

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased the 60D as a replacement for my Rebel XTi, and I'm very satisfied with my purchase. My success rate for sports photography has gone up due to the better AF system. Coming from another camera that has a flip screen, I was very happy that the 60D has a articulating screen and the ability to reverse the screen is very handy for protecting the screen during travel. The convenience in being able to take pictures and HD video in a single camera is great. The camera feels very solid and is comfortable in my hands. I'm glad that this camera takes SD Cards since they can be put straight into my laptop. Overall I'm very happy that I went with the 60D.

made the a good purchase

By dsg from New York on 10/03/2010


Pros:

Great Images

Cons:

Plastic Body

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had the 60D for a few weeks now. I am very impressed with the results. I have been using it with the 18-130mm lens that came with the camera and also a 10-22mm ultra wide angle lens. The quality of the shots have really impressed me. This is ultimately my first digital SLR and i feel i picked the right one. The only downside i see is the fact the body is not some form of metal construction. However the camera still feels very solid. I looked at the Rebel t2i but this is way better. The movable LCD screen is very useful. If you use the live view it is a little slow and this is something Canon should try to improve in coming models. For me i feel i picked a fantastic camera.

Great upgrade from Rebel class

By flip from Undisclosed on 10/02/2010


Pros:

Amazing Clarity, Fast Shutter Speed, Re-designed, Large Tilt Screen, Good Feel

Cons:

(hard) Plastic Body, Manual Focus Video

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Learned the ropes with one of the first Rebel versions that came out years ago and still use it today, make money with it and win contests with it. This is the best upgrade above the Rebel series if you don't have the budget for a 7D. Yes, the body is plastic, but it is a heavier duty plastic than the rebels, and if your that much of a pro to need a metal body then you'd be buying a 7D or Mark series anyway...the video is fantastic, flip screen is fantastic - much sturdier than I expected and it turns to face the camera when not in use so screen should last much longer than one that is always exposed. High iso quality is outstanding. Button display and re-design is great - 2 of my friends have 50D's and they love the new design. Only cons I see are no auto-focus on the video, and no metal body - but I've fallen w/my Rebel mountain hiking and didn't hurt that so...Don't abuse your equipment and it won't break...If you have a 50D - upgrade to a higher class- the 7D or higher, unless your just dying to have video. This is basically a hard plastic body 50D with video and new intuitive button layout. Its a great upgrade for lower end Rebel users. If you have a T1 or T2, think about holding out for a 7D unless you just need the higher shutter speed or video.

Super Rebel

By Tom from Undisclosed on 10/01/2010


Pros:

Great Image Quality, Wireless Flash Support, Superb Swivel Screen, Electronic Level

Cons:

Sd Card, New More Expensive Battery & Grip, No Lens Ma, Plastic Body (boo!)

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have owned XXD and Rebel series cameras since the D30 (3MP) and original digital Rebel. I was looking forward to a replacement to my 50D but to be honest, I was so disappointed in the 60D I returned it after three days. The image quality is as good as it gets in this class, but the build and feature set are Rebel class. In many ways, this was a downgrade from my 50D due to the plastic body, SD card slot, and absence of lens micro adjustment. Had this camera been sold as a T3i/600D, it would have been a perfect replacement for my XSI. But I need something more rugged for my part-time pro work. The image quality is first-rate and I almost kept the camera just for the superb swivel screen. I hope Canon incorporates that feature on all of its new cameras. This would be a good camera for the first-time DSLR buyer, but than so is the T2i at a substantial savings. In the end however, I just couldn't justify a Rebel series camera as a replacement for my rock solid 50D, so I returned the camera (at a 15% loss). What helped my decision was two days after I bought the camera, a competitor released a camera with 39-point AF system with 3D tracking and 2,016 pixel RGB metering sensor, metal body, GPS compatible, twin memory card slots (though SD) - the camera the 60D should have been. Maybe when the 70D comes out?

Great upgrade

By Anonymous from Raleigh, NC on 09/29/2010


Pros:

Excellent Image Quality On High Iso

Cons:

Plastic Body

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this camera. The image quality is excellent in still and HD video. The still shot on high ISO is also very accurate and smooth. I do wish that canon would have used the 50D body on this camera , but it still feels solid and has a good feel even on the bigger lens. I like that you are able to rate the picture you take and go back to them instantly without going through all the picture you've taken. The price is reasonable, between the price of the T2i and 7d, but that's what this camera really is, a little bit of both.

Should have magnesium body and better build qualit

By Peter from New York on 09/28/2010


Pros:

Good Image Quality Hd Movie Good Lcd

Cons:

Plastic Body Use Sd Card Slower Frame Rate

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I used this for 3 weeks and here is what I think. Overall the image quality is very good. High ISO settings also give good results. The 60D is a bit small for my hand. Plastic body makes it look like a cheap product. 50D has a much better build quality and it feel very nice in hand. Canon also should improve the old Focus system last since 40D. Should record movies in Stereo sound.
