Description

Adam Scorey, editor of Digital SLR User Magazine reviews the Canon 60D.

The EOS 60D is a mid range camera, 18 megga pixels and a body price of around £900. It has an PAS-C sensor which gives you 1.6 times magnification on your lenses which is great if you need that extra reach. 5 frames per second shooting and it all runs through the Digic 4 processor and it does a good job.

Something almost unique for this type of camera is it's flip out fully rotating 3 inch LCD screen. Why these are not fitted to all DSLRs we don't know because they are so useful. When shooting up high or down low you can still see what you're shooting.

The look and feel of the camera is different from the 50D and the 550D. Something they have downgraded is the quality of the button on the back. The camera doesn't have the same Canon quality feel of it's cousins. The 60D has Canon's quick menu system controlled by the wheel on the back which helps you navigate to the most used functions like white balance, modes exposure compensation, ISO etc.

Sop is this camera going to re-float Canon's boat. No I don't think so. It does what it does very well, it's a very very good camera but £900 is a lot of money and it does have some serious competitors from other manufacturers.

We hope you enjoy all our fun filled photography videos and reviews.
