Canon EOS 60D review


Canon's robust enthusiast targeted EOS 60D is a more consumer-friendly version of the 50D it replaces. It slots into the current range between the Canon EOS 550D, of interest to those stepping up from a compact, and the semi-professional Canon EOS 7D.

Canon EOS 60D review


Is the 60D a successor to the 50D or big brother to the Canon 550D?

Pivoting LCD ; In camera editing ; Wireless flash control ; Good image quality ; Good video quality ; Solid feeling build

Use of plastic on body ; Price ; Some fiddly controls

It's only natural to view the Canon 60D as a replacement for the semi-pro EOS 50D.

Canon EOS 60D - Pocket-lint


Replacing the popular Canon EOS 50D, Canon's latest 60D has a whole lot to live up to. Reviving the vari-angle screen for DSLRs of this level seems to

Image quality, vari-angle LCD

Limited updates over 50D, not a tough build

There’s no escaping that the 60D is a quality release. But with Canon’s own 7D and Nikon’s recently-released D7000 there’s a whole lot of pressure that may dumb-down its release. Squeezed between the EOS 550D and 7D posts gives the 60D a bit of a hard...

Canon EOS 60D with 18-135mm lens review


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

While the 550D’s photos are exceptionally good for the price, the 60D has some stiffer competition. Canon’s SLRs are extremely consistent, so choosing a model is more about meeting your needs than going for an unequivocal Best Buy. That’s true of...

Canon EOS 60D review


The Canon EOS 60D sits between the EOS 50D and the EOS 7D in Canon's mid-range digital SLR offerings, and it's a mighty beast to shoot with. It's fast, it has a vari-angle LCD screen, it can shoot high-definition video, and it has useful built-in image...

The Canon EOS 60D offers vast improvements over the EOS 50D. Not only does it produce bigger images, it also has a more contoured body and plenty of new great features, such as the hinged screen. It's a camera that just makes you want to go out and...

Canon EOS 60D


I am very impressed with the Canon EOS 60D, not least by the new handling. It seems that having to move some of the buttons due to the vari-angle screen has given Canon the opportunity to revisit the handling of the camera.The results is a camera that...

Canon unveils the EOS 60Da


The EOS 60Da is ideal for shooting astronomical phenomena such as diffuse nebulae – a favourite among astrophotographers due to the distinct red colour caused by the ionisation of hydrogen. In a standard DSLR, an infrared (IR) filter limits the amount...

As part of the EOS System the EOS 60Da is also compatible with the world’s most comprehensive selection of interchangeable lenses, ranging from the 8mm to 800mm.

Canon EOS 60D DSLR


Review In designing the much-anticipated EOS 60D, Canon decided against a simple upgrade of the previous model, the EOS 50D [1]. Instead, the company opted for a redefinition of its range to create a middle ground between the semi-pro EOS 7D [2] and...

Although not particularly innovative – mostly borrowing features from other EOS models – the EOS 60D nicely fits the market section between beginner and semi-pro DSLR models. With virtually the same image quality of the EOS 7D plus a swivel LCD screen,...
