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.

Digital Photography Review
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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Photography Blog
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.
