As one of the first people to get this camera way back in 2002, I can say that this camera is awesome! Its now nearly 2010 and this camera is faultless. Ok its a bit retro compared to my 5dmk2 but its saved the day many many times. I still use it on a pro level from time to time as a back up camera or often with a sigma 8mm for quirky candids...Its never been cleaned and yet its been kicked, dropped, rained on, waves and spray have hit it, its been rolled so many times in the footwell of the car,

Ok, got my D60 about 2 years ago as an occasion - it was relatively cheap (even more so if you remember the original price..) and it ame in mint condition - no scratches, no male function whatsoever. It was my personal return to a real photographic tool, since it was the first time that I was back aat SLR, since I went digital. What a beast! The oerall performance and feature set may be outdated, the AF is somewhat tricky (and I do not understand why the heck Canon dropped that red pattern ...

Top marks except focusing a bit slow. Problems: Slow focusing: difficult with low light conditions.

I've had mine for just on 1 year now - I bought it orginally for a job I was offered at the 2003 Melbourne Forumla 1 Grand Prix. It worked great last year and I'm looking forward to using it again, sans an extra year's experience, this year. I've used it for monthly magazine work for the last year with no problems. The camera is solid, feels great, works dependably, produces excellent images when used with good EF lenses (such as the Canon 50mm 1.8, the 85mm 1.8 or even a Sigma 15mm 2.8 ...

Have had the camera a month now and love it. Feels just like shooting with the EOS film cameras.

Jumped in the deep end as just started, read the "roadtests" and then bought it. I found the 1.6 lens thing hard to grasp but plugging on.... I,ve coupled it to a canon s9000 printer and really pleased with the results so far. Problems: Had a few error messages, downloaded firmware1.4 from canon site, seemed to fix it.

Excellent point and shoot in many situations now that the price is down about a grand from intro. I had a Toshiba PDR M70 with 3.37mgpix for 2.5 years and that was okay except no interchangeable lens and won't focus at all in low light situations, so I moved up to the D60. I had been using a Eos 620 bought in 87 for film work. Done with 35mm. Never thought I would see the day. This camera is more then enough for studio work where fast auto focus is not required. My only complaint is that ...

I'm very happy w/my D-60. I've gotten excellent prints (up to 20 x 30) from it. It is a great tool that has enhanced my learning because I don't have to worry about film. I find it comfortable to use, I like the placement of controls, etc. I've rated the construction as a 4, because I know there are tougher cameras, but also heavier. Problems: Only problems I've noted are: 1. Sometimes when I switch power on and subsequently press one of the function buttons, the display doesn't ...

Up to 50 lenses can be used with the EOS D60 body. Despite the 1.6X factor applied to all this range, I still consider the EOS D60 as a really nice piece of equipement. Problems: Don't expect to get better than 22mm with a $3,000 14mm F 1:2.8 wide-angle lens.
