The Canon 60D is fast, shoots gorgeous still images and video, and adds tons of options to make your video look professional, but those looking for ease of use may be deterred by the lack of continuous autofocus during video recording. quote

The EOS 60D is an excellent upgrade for EOS Rebel owners who want more control, an articulated LCD, wireless flash, a more substantial body, and high-quality video capture.

Digital Photography Review Nov 10, 2010

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.

The Canon EOS 60D is in many ways a great camera: fast, feature-packed, and with excellent photo and video quality. Some annoying aspects of its control layout dim its shine a little, however, so try before you buy.

The EOS 60D represents the middle of Canon’s SLR lineup, but it is a top-notch camera in terms of performance, handling and flexibility. There are a lot of upgrades from the 50D, including a significant bump in resolution and a completely revamped control system that make it more flexible to use.

There's no question that the Canon 60D takes great pictures and videos, works like a charm, and does incredibly well in low light. The ability to print 20x30-inch prints from ISO 400 and even 800 images is valuable, and quite impressive.

The EOS 60D is a good midrange dSLR for enthusiasts which delivers quality photos and videos, but its slow performance may not go well with some picky photographers.

The pictures are great, HD video is a bonus and, despite one or two hiccups in design, there’s a fair whack of specification here for the money that’s certainly not to be sniffed at.

Though there’s very little we can fault when it comes to performance, the one over-riding shame here is that a £800 body-only price tag conceivably places the Canon EOS 60D out of reach of the average compact camera owner.

Ultimately if you forget about its predecessor, the EOS 60D is a successful DSLR which sits comfortably between the models on either side of it and is very enjoyable to use.

The 60D aims for casual shooters, it offers near professional – or should I say near-7D – capabilities and quality, making the 60D a highly recommended DSLR for anyone who just want more than an entry level model but does not need a professional tool.

The Canon 60D has some smart features and handling is good overall, but getting the best results can take more effort than it should. Be prepared to interact with exposure compensation and auto lighting optimization settings fairly frequently.

Superior ergonomics – particularly the bigger viewfinder and articulated screen – make this a shrewd choice for Canon upgraders willing to look beyond the 550D.

If you were previously tempted by an upgrade to the EOS 7D but don't really require the weather sealed magnesium build, faster continuous shooting speeds and better autofocus and certainly can't justify the cost, the EOS 60D could be the camera for you.

For the moment, though, the Canon EOS 60D is a full-featured, intuitive and very capable DSLR that takes fantastic stills and video and which still hits the all-important £1000 / $1000 price point.

If Canon would just lower the price by $150 or so, then I'd say this was an ideal upgrade to those users with a Rebel camera.

Much is made of the camera's plastic construction on the photography blogs out there (metal vs. plastic construction debate), but the truth is that it feels very solid and well made. The camera produces excellent images, and feels snappy and quick in operation.

Bought this camera as a graduation present for myself and I love it. It has the basics for someone new to DSLRs and also has the modes for those with experience. Takes great photos and I couldn't be happier!

Image quality really surprised me, especially coming from using the 50D. LCD swivel screen quite useful in video situations (though I wish it had some sort of auto-brightness). Solid construction; easy for a Canon user to pick up and run with it.
