Manufacturer's Description

Discover your creative side with the EOS 60D. Express yourself by producing stunning stills or Full HD Movies using the vari-angle LCD screen and the advanced creative features.

Find your own angle

18 MP CMOS sensor;Ideal for those who want to create large, poster-size prints – or crop images without losing any of the detail necessary for printing – EOS 60D’s 18MP CMOS sensor is outstanding in low light, and produces images with incredibly low noise.

Advanced creative features;Use your imagination to enhance your stills with a range of creative filters such as toy camera effect or soft focus. These filters can be applied to RAW and JPEG images giving you creative control after the shot has been taken. Basic+ allows you to apply a creative ambience, when shooting in the Basic modes, giving you creative control without extensive photographic knowledge.

Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 Clear View LCD;Perform detailed checks on images and video or shoot unique or awkward angles with a 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 Clear View LCD screen, which features an ultra-high 1,040,000 dots for increased clarity. Switch to Live View mode and use real-time visual feed to help capture the best angle.

Full HD movie recording;The EOS 60D combines exceptional still shooting with the ability to shoot Full HD (1080p) video. To satisfy your creativity the EOS 60D features full manual control and selectable frame rates. You can also shoot high speed 50/60fps movies at 720P for when the action is really fast. An HDMI connection allows High Definition playback of footage and images on any HDTV. With HDMI enabled TV sets playback can be controlled using the remote control.

DIGIC 4;Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor works with the CMOS sensor to deliver 14-bit image processing, for smooth gradations and natural looking colours. DIGIC 4 also powers advanced Noise Reduction when shooting at higher ISO speeds, plus split-second start-up times and near-instant image review after shooting.

High ISO for low light;When light levels fall, the EOS 60D offers an ISO range of up to 6400 – expandable to 12800 for those environments where using flash is undesirable.

iFCL metering system;A 63-zone dual layer metering sensor analyses Focus, Colour and Luminance information, providing accurate and consistent metering.

Quick Control screen;Accessible using a dedicated button it provides easy access to commonly used functions, ensuring that you are ready to take the shot as it happens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mid-range DSLR 29 Dec 2010
By Lumpster VINE VOICE
Style Name:Body Only
OK, I had a Canon EOS 400D that had served me well for nearly 3 years (and I had a 300D before that) and was looking to upgrade it, but I couldn't decide between a 550D or a much more expensive 7D. Then the 60D was launched and from the reviews I read, it filled the gap perfectly between the two. As ever, launch pricing was really toppy at over 1k but I took the plunge just before Christmas 2010 and bought the 60D (with the 18-55 IS kit lens) for a great price of 799.

It's still fairly early days but so far, so good. The camera is a dream to use, images are razor sharp. Handling is easier than the lower spec DSLRs in Canon's range due to the fact that the 60D is a slightly bigger, bulkier machine but without this being a negative. If you are familiar with a Canon DSLR, all of the controls and features are logical and easy to use without having to trawl through the manual. The tiltable screen is a work of genius, especially the fact that you can store the screen facing into the camera for even more protection when not in use. You can also tilt the screen and take shots based on the screen view if, for example, you are taking shots with the camera held above your head to get a clear view.

I primarily use my old 28-135mm IS USM Canon lens and image quality is fantastic. I have also bought a Canon 70-300mm IS USM zoom and again it seems to produce great results. I am using Class 10 SDHC cards (whereas my previous 2 Canon DSLRs used Compact Flash) and the speed is lightning fast - I have bought a couple of the Transcend ones from Amazon and they seem to do a remarkably good job for a lot less money than the competition. Only time will tell if they prove to be reliable...

5.0 out of 5 stars Canon EOS 60D 21 Jan 2011
By Golfal
Style Name:Body Only
I had my trusty EOS 300D for five years and although it never let me down I was itching to upgrade.

I looked at and handled both the 7D and 60D but was undecided until the price difference made up my mind.
I opted for the 60D and can honestly say I have no regrets.The images I get from my 17-85 IS and my 70-300 IS are amazing.

Shoot in RAW and process in seconds with the camera,a great boon when out in the field.

The menu might look a bit much at first glance but with time all becomes clear.

Before I sign off,the video shooting is also top class,all in all a great bit of gear.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best crop sensor camera canon has to offer! 20 Mar 2014
By Sam Lee
Style Name:Body Only|Verified Purchase
Taking into consideration the rest of the canon crop sensor line up, mainly being the 70d (new 'replacement' of the 60d) and the four year old 7d. The 60d beats them both, currently being the owner of a 600d, 60d and a 7d i can make an educated evaluation of which is the better camera. Although the 7d is weather sealed and made of magnesium alloy and has a fantastic auto focus system, you have to remember the 600d, 60d and 7d all have the same 1.6x crop sensor. The 7d will get you an extra few frames per second (8 fps) the 60d produces 5.7 fps which in most situations is perfectly adequate. The quality the images is for the best part of the time the same, unless you get into pixel picking then you may notice a slight difference with the 7d. Considering that the target audience for these type of camera are more often than not arn't going to be using these camera for commercial work so there is not need for you to require masses of megapixel because you wont be producing huge prints, anything up to the size of a2 the sensors are more than capable. The 600d is lacking of performance compared to the 60d and 7d only shooting 3.6 fps and having a rather shocking auto focus system! the 60d is a huge step up regarding auto focus and fps, the 7d is just that little be better for very fast moving subjects. Build quality regarding the 60d is very solid, having a magnesium alloy frame and a fiber glass plastic resin outer, it feels fantastic and doesnt feel to heavy or large in the hands. The 7d is alot heavier and bigger, this doesnt really make it a suitable 'walk around' or traveling camera. the 7d doesnt have articulating screen so the 60d and 600d have another advantage on the 7d, this is ideal if you want to shoot video or take pictures from unconventional angles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like it? I love it, but... 11 July 2011
By S. Gee
Style Name:Body Only
Just back from holiday having been using my brand new 60d for the last couple of weeks. As an upgrade from my old 400d the improvement in quality is ridiculous - high ISOs give usable images allowing hand-held images in low-light nighttime situations and the auto-focus is pin sharp and much faster than the 400d. If you are thinking about upgrading from a circa 400d model, you shouldn't think for too long - well worth it.

Build quality is also great - go to a camera shop and handle this alongside the 600d - the difference in quality of the camera from a build point of view is very apparent. The rear dial is great and the whole thing is pretty intuitive, if sometimes the choice of functions with buttons is a little odd.

I've been snapping away at the Tour de France, shooting at 200mm between heads and over shoulders and panning to pick up fast moving cyclists and had no problem getting some great shots in the bag - landscapes and candid street shots also work well.

So why not 5 stars, well:

- the lay out and selection of the buttons doesn't really fit with what I'd like - this may be my familiarity with the 400d, but one thing which really gripes is the lack of an AE +/- button - probably the one I used most in normal shooting in Aperture Priority. I'll probably swap one of the buttons on the top plate for it though so no major harm done. The 60d is highly customisable so you can fix most gripes if you need to [edit - thanks to a comment by R. Mills, I now know you can very easily alter exposure compensation nonetheless - see bottom of review]..

- focus in live view is really very slow with a lot of hunting. I'm not in all seriousness sure it's useable except for static subjects.
