Canon has unveiled the EOS 60D mid-level DSLR, replacing the EOS 50D. However, following the launch of the EOS 7D, the 60D has been repositioned in the market, so isn't a simple upgrade to its predecessor. Instead the 60D is a smaller camera featuring an articulated screen and plastic body shell and utilizing SD memory cards. It combines the 18MP CMOS sensor and 1040k dot 3.0" LCD from the EOS 550D (Rebel T2i) with the AF system from the 50D. Meanwhile it gains the 7D's HD movie capability.

Canon EOS 60D Review at imaging-resource

imaging-resource :" the Canon 60D is built for a different market. Canon has long since lured many serious 50D shooters to the 7D and 5D Mark II; now it appears their goal is to lure the Rebel shooters to the Canon 60D and more directly compete with the Nikon D90. That's probably just the right strategy. Most of the important features from the 7D and T2i are included in the Canon 60D, as well as the audio level control from the 5D Mark II and the swivel screen from the Canon G11. It seems like every Canon line has contributed a little something to Canon's entry-level prosumer digital SLR, and the results are quite good."

Canon EOS 60D Review at Cent

Cent:" The 60D is ideal for anyone looking for a video-enabled SLR who wasn't familiar with the 50D or earlier line of cameras. But if you were looking for an upgrade you might be left wondering what Canon did to your faithful product line and why this camera feels a bit like a souped-up 550D, or a stripped-down 7D."

Canon EOS 60D Review at photoradar

photoradar :" Successor to the venerable EOS 50D or big brother to the Canon 550D? In a bid to find its place in the world, the new Canon 60D boasts an 18MP sensor and a pivoting LCD, and serves up a few (mostly nice) surprises."

Canon 60D hands-on* review - creative but nothing new at eoshd

eoshd:" The main gripe I have with this camera is not that it is a bad camera. It is a very very good one. I just think it's very cynical to expect buyers to choose between 3 models, when Canon could have put a rotating 1MP screen and manual audio controls on the 7D to begin with. Why do we need 3 models? The only real difference is not so much that one is so much more advanced than the other - it is all about price and target markets, not engineering."

Canon 60D review at letsgodigital

Letsgodigital:" The Canon EOS 60D, moreover, is worth the trouble to have a look at. I had the opportunity to get to know the Canon EOS 60D DSLR camera at a presentation made by Canon Netherlands. My first impression as a photographer was that you get ‘a whole lot of camera’ in your hands. The EOS 50D is history, and the Canon EOS 60D is taking over."

Canon 60D review at photographyblog

photographyblog:" The documentation that comes with the 60D is very good, as it is with all Canon cameras, with a detailed manual that includes everything you need to know about the camera's operation. Unfortunately Canon have decided to cut their costs by only including it on the supplied CD-ROM, which isn't much use when you're out shooting with the camera."

Canon EOS 60D DSLR announced and previewed at dpreview

dpreview:"For photographers who want to add post-production effects to their images without the need for expensive software, the EOS 60D also features a range of new creative filters that can be applied in-camera. Filters including Grainy B/W, Soft Focus, Toy Camera Effect and Miniature Effect provide images with a different feel, allowing photographers to create a themed collection - using Grainy B/W to give images a reportage style, for example – or easily smooth skin tone in portraits with Soft Focus.

Canon EOS 60D Overview at infosyncworld

infosyncworld:" Here's how we think you should go about your mid-level DSLR quest. Look at ease of use. The Canon EOS 60D is far easier to use than the D7000, especially if this is your first DSLR. Photographers who are more serious about shooting, but are on a budget or do not need the big, bad D700 should look into the D7000. It's that simple. The Canon EOS 60D is a great tool to learn on while the Nikon D7000 is a bit more advanced."

Canon 60D review at cameralabs

cameralabs:" We tested a final production EOS 60D running firmware 1.0.5. Following our convention of testing cameras using their factory default settings unless otherwise stated, the EOS 60D was set to Large Fine JPEG plus RAW quality, Auto White Balance, Evaluative metering and the Standard Picture Style; unless otherwise stated, High ISO Noise Reduction and the Auto Lighting Optimiser were set to their default Standard settings, while Highlight Tone Priority was disabled. Note: we disabled Auto Lighting Optimizer for our high ISO noise tests, as this can artificially increase noise levels. Lens-based Image Stabilisation was enabled for all handheld shots and disabled for tripod-based tests."

Review: Canon EOS 60D DSLR camera at macworld

macworld:" The Canon EOS 60D is an excellent upgrade for Rebel shooters looking for more control, an articulated LCD, wireless flash, and a more substantial body. If you're interested in recording video, this DSLR is a natural and smartly priced choice. Owners of the Canon 40D or 50D looking to upgrade might want to consider the 7D instead if body heft and fast burst rates are a priority."

Canon's 60D impresses reviewers, but a challenger approaches (video) at engadget

engadget:" The camera will kindly record in 1080p24 in addition to 1080p30, but the autofocus while filming is panned, called "fairly useless" thanks to only happening when you half-press the shutter button, and then taking a few seconds to figure things out -- but that's just like the EOS 7D and T2i."

Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR Review at ephotozine

ephotozine:" Although on first impression, the EOS 60D appears to offer little more than the current cameras in the Canon range, it fills the gap well between the entry level EOS 550D and the professional level EOS 7D.I feel the EOS 60D is a worthy and welcome successor to the EOS 50D, which it replaces, filling the gap between the EOS 550D and EOS 7D in Canon's line-up very well indeed."

DCRP Review: Canon EOS-60D at dcresource

dcresource:" The EOS-60D has the best battery life in its class and, as you saw before, it easily beats out the more expensive 7D, as well. If you are shooting exclusively with live view, expect those numbers to drop down to about 320 shots per charge, which is on the lower end of the spectrum for a D-SLR or interchangeable lens camera (at least those that I have numbers for)."

Canon EOS 60D Review at digital-photography-school

digital-photography-school:" However, make no mistake, this is a superior camera. Well thought out, with admirable image control features. Shooting with it was a dream … I have rarely had so much fun and captured great shots with precision. I want one!
