Canon EOS 60D Review

Announced Aug 26, 2010 •
18 megapixels | 3 screen | APS-C sensor
dpreview conclusion

The 60D is probably best understood as a 'super Rebel.' It's a more comfortable, more flexible, and faster-to-use version of Canon's justly popular entry-level DSLRs. The twin dial controls, better grip, and bigger viewfinder will delight stills shooters while the articulated screen and movie control will please would-be videographers.

Good for

Enthusiast photographers beginning to outgrow their first DSLR. Videographers wanting control over their footage.

Not so good for

Demanding users who need the greater speed, sophistication and durability of a semi-pro grade camera.

Canon EOS 60D review

Canon's EOS 60D represents a new mid-range category for the company, slotting between the upper entry-level EOS 550D / Rebel T2i and the semi-pro EOS 7D. Like many new Canon DSLRs, the EOS 60D inherits a number of elements from existing models and repackages them with a handful of new features. As such, there's few surprises concerning the quality of this new model as it's effectively...
