My Menu

The 'My Menu' feature on the EOS 60D allows you to produce your own custom menu made up of any of the cameras menu options (including custom functions). This means that previously buried but useful options can be added to a top level menu.

60D seems a real hybrid and hails the videographers mostly. IQ as good as 7D and video is near the level of 5D mark II at 100-1600 iso range. That is a bargain combo for amateurs and pro-sumers alike.It is necesarry to use it with fast primes to get the most of from the sensor.Still I do not like the motion jpeg compression and so does the video quality of nikons.If You have money to invest some superior Canon primes and wish to get best of both worlds (video&stills;) without bankrupt it seems 60D is the right decisio?n to go for..


To my mind Canon EOS 60D is great for the ambitious amateur or dedicated professional, this Canon DSLR camera makes it a snap to produce high-quality pictures and movies. The included UD zoom lens provides a high-resolution photo with reduced chromatic aberration and its refined image stabilization technology steadies the shot and reduces blur, resulting in a sharp and clear picture.
