Canon EOS 60D DSLR Camera Quick Review & Comparison

September 23, 2010, By Alex Ion

After waiting for almost a year, Canon unveiled its new DSLR camera, the EOS 60D.

Launched in Taiwan on September 18 at a recommended retail price of almost $1100 for body alone (the KIT will cost an extra $1,400 and will include a 18-135mm EF-S lens), the new camera features an 18-megapixel CMOS image sensor that promises wonders when you start shooting.

What is exciting about this new Canon EOS 60D is the swiveling 180-degrees horizontally and 270-degrees vertically 3-inch 1.04-megapixel 3:2 LCD screen which sounds like good help for every photographer trying to take excellent still pictures in the most extreme conditions out there.

The new 60D also features a Quick Control access button just like the one found previously on the 550D which allows photographers to instantly reach the most common shooting settings and playback controls. Customising the functions of a number of buttons is also possible, allowing photographers to tailor the camera to suit their individual needs.

In my opinion, you should stick to your “old” prosumer Rebel series if you can live without the 5.3 fps found on the new 60D and upgrade only if you have an older camera since the sensor used is identical to the one found in the Eos 7D and Eos 550D.

How about you guys? Are you going to get your hands on the EOS 60D?
