Digital Inspiration. That's how the good folks at Canon define their EOS 60D DSLR Camera. With an 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor, a 3" Clear View LCD, and HD video capture, among other mouth-watering features, perhaps you will agree. Let's take a tantalizing tour of this highly-anticipated DSLR camera body.

What was that? Did I say video? Yes, I did. Let's take a moment to delve into the feature that has all those techies out there jumping out of their desk chairs. The 60D is more than your run-of-the-mill DSLR camera, as we know; it doubles as a 1920 x 1080 HD video camera. With the built-in video camera you'll be able to capture MOV video clips up to 4GB in size (time depends on resolution).

With features like manual exposure control, the option to attach on any of the Canon EF or EF-S lenses, and various audio adjustments - including an external stereo mic connection, and both manual and auto gain control - the 60D puts DSLR film-making at your fingertips. Other noteworthy features of the video function include in-camera editing, a number of recording resolutions to choose from, and an HDMI output for one-cable connection to your HDTV.

Perhaps you should take a moment and catch your breath. Ok, here we go - back to the DSLR proper.

Let's ease back into things here. No matter if you're shooting video or digital stills the 60D captures everything to convenient flash memory cards - Record to SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Canon also gives you the option to use wireless USB 2.0 drives, or Eye-Fi cards for computer-free wireless transfer of your images.

Now, back to the show... The 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor packs in enough pixel-power to make those mural prints you've only been dreaming of, a reality. But even if you don't plan on making a wall-sized mural of your dog romping through the surf, 18MP have other advantages. Sharpness, clear details, a lack of image-destroying noise, and true-to-life colors are all examples of how more pixels will make your images pop!

The 60D also features Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor. With DIGIC 4 you'll enjoy the benefits of fast shooting speeds, in-camera RAW image processing, creative filters, image resizing, and other exciting in-camera features. Enhanced Face Detection Live Mode, Full HD video recording, Auto Lighting Optimizer, and Lens Peripheral Optimization are additional features also enabled by DIGIC 4.

Another high-point of the 60D is the fully articulated (in layman's terms: flip out and/or swivel) 3" LCD screen. That's right boys and girls, the LCD opens away from the camera and articulates for viewing from multiple angles. You can also choose to leave the LCD in the traditional back of the camera position. When you're done shooting, turn the LCD in, and its back cover protects the display from damage.

When it comes to low light you want the option to shoot without a flash. Canon gave the 60D ISO settings from 100-6400 - and the option to go up to 12800 using the custom function. You have more options to choose from - and more opportunity to capture stunningly clear images, even in low light.

What else could Canon fit into this divinely, oh wait, I mean digitally inspired camera? A short overview; includes 5.3 frames per second continuous shooting, a 96% coverage viewfinder, a multi-control dial, a 63-zone dual-layer metering system, and a 9-point AF system.

In addition to these user-friendly features, the camera also boasts in-camera photo editing technologies. You'll be able to process RAW files entirely in the camera to produce a separate JPEG file - without a computer. Filters like "Grainy Black-and-White" and "Soft Focus Effect" also allow you to add an artistic touch to your images, sans post-production. Throw in compatibility with Mac and PC, along with a myriad of bundled software options, and the 60D is one camera that packs a powerful punch.

18MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor
The EOS 60D features a Canon-designed 18MP APS-C size CMOS sensor that captures such a high level of resolution; it's easy to crop images for enlargement without concern of losing detail. A major factor in reducing noise, the CMOS sensor assures that images shot at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth

The improved DIGIC 4 Image Processor ensures that images are captured, processed and saved with remarkable speed. The EOS 60D DSLR's new 3:2 multiple aspect ratio, in-camera RAW image processing, creative filters, image resizing and provided S2 and S3 image-recording quality are all possible thanks to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. With dazzling results, the new DIGIC 4 Image Processor also works to capture and process data of images shot at 18MP at 5.3 fps, as well as 14-bit signal processing for excellent image gradation, enhanced Face Detection Live mode, Full HD video recording, Auto Lighting Optimizer and Lens Peripheral Optimization

Vari-Angle 3" Clear View LCD Monitor
The EOS 60D features a bright, high resolution, flip-out Vari-angle 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor for shooting at a variety of angles. By easily switching between low and high angles, the EOS 60D freely enables angle adjustments even if the camera is mounted on a tripod or has a battery grip attached

With 1,040,000 (dots/VGA) pixels for spectacular detail, the advanced, smudge-resistant monitor includes high transparency materials plus anti-reflective and water-repellent coatings to provide clear and bright viewing. Superb for reviewing, editing and deleting photos or composing new images in Live View function, the Vari-angle Clear View LCD monitor also allows access to camera settings like ISO, metering modes, AF Point selection, the horizontal Electronic Level and flash options

EOS HD Video
The EOS 60D features HD Video capture technologies - manual exposure control for more creative control, for example - borrowed directly from professional Canon DSLRs to capture stellar video with all the benefits of shooting with a DSLR. By shooting video with the EOS 60D, photographers as well as filmmakers can take advantage of the creative features native to DSLR cameras. Along with its manual controls, the EOS 60D allows for full use of Canon EF and EF-S lenses, including macro and fisheye, providing a plethora of shooting options once reserved only for still photography. The resulting HD video is a standout in its beautiful depth-of-field characteristics and remarkable capture capability under poor lighting conditions. Additionally, a Movie Crop function is included: An SD-quality video (640 x 480) can be cropped to the equivalent of about 7x magnification of regular shooting

The audio input level feature offers both manual and auto gain control, up to 64 levels, and a wind filter minimizes unwanted background noise. By pressing the Quick Control button, a simple graphic user interface for adjusting image quality, white balance, image creation and other settings appears on the LCD. The EOS 60D even lets users edit video in-camera: On-site or off, unnecessary scenes can be deleted and the start/end points of video footage can be designated via in-camera editing functions without the need of a separate computer

Video can be captured at a number of resolutions and frame rates for numerous applications. It can capture 1920 x 1080 Full HD video at frame rates of 30 (29.97 fps), 24 (23.976 fps) and 25 frames per second, for up to 4GB per clip. Video footage is saved as MOV files and can be viewed in Full HD through the EOS 60D DSLR's HDMI output. Other recording sizes include HD at 1280 x 720 (50/60 fps) or SD/VGA at 640 x 480 (50/60 fps) -24/30 fps delivers cinema-like motion, while 60 fps is perfect for footage being uploaded to video-sharing websites. The EOS 60D also has a built-in microphone for simple mono recording and stereo sound can be recorded through a self-powered external microphone. (1/8" mini jack)

High ISO Sensitivity
With a broad range of ISO settings, expandable up to 6400 in the auto setting and 12800 with the custom function, the EOS 60D enables shooting from sunrise to sunset and helps ensure capture of the finest detail. With enhanced high-sensitivity optimization, subjects can be captured clearly and easily at high shutter speeds without flash, with minimized blur and noise. In bright scenes, especially long exposures in daylight, optimal exposure can be achieved with a fully open wide-diameter lens, no dark filter needed
5.3 fps Continuous Shooting
With a 0.1 second start-up time, speedy autofocus, and minimal shutter lag, the EOS 60D is made to capture even rapidly-occurring scenes with stunning precision. Able to shoot up to 5.3 frames per second (fps), capturing a maximum burst of approximately 58 Large/JPEGs and 16 RAW, the EOS 60D DSLR lets you catch even the briefest of moments, whether it's a faced-paced soccer game or the flicker of a candle flame
96% Viewfinder Coverage
The EOS 60D features a redesigned viewfinder that not only offers 96% coverage, 0.95x magnification, a 27° angle of view and user-controlled dioptric adjustment, it also features a transparent LCD display that enables a number of viewfinder displays. A six-level battery check indicator has been added on the left, and the exposure level indicator scale has been expanded to up to three stops, with arrows indicating greater exposure levels

The EOS 60D also features a horizontal Electronic Level, that, when activated, is superimposed on the LCD monitor to aid in achieving evenly leveled shots by indicating the horizontal tilt up to approximately 9° in 1° increments

Enhanced iFCL 63-Zone Dual-Layer Metering System and 9-Point AF System
The EOS 60D features a 63-zone dual-layer sensor designed to complement the 9-point AF system. By taking into account the color and luminosity surrounding chosen AF points, this system delivers an advanced level of accuracy for stunning results even in difficult lighting situations. Since the metering sensor has a color measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by different light sources are minimized; the EOS 60D gives stable exposure from shot to shot in situations where light changes, such as in a theater or concert hall. This makes the EOS 60D ideal for scenes with extreme difference in brightness such as brightly lit scenes or backlit scenes; the camera balances exposure of the main subject at the background, and exposures are not overly influenced by bright areas in the shot. Since the EOS 60D provides high-speed X-sync ("X-sync" means the fastest shutter speed that can synchronize with a flash burst at the moment the shutter is fully released) up to 1/250 sec., the range of photographic expression is dramatically increased, allowing the EOS 60D to be used with confidence in bright scenes or dim
In-Camera Technologies for a Streamline Workflow
The EOS 60D marks a highpoint in convenience for the photographer by being able to shoot an image as a RAW file and then process it entirely in-camera to produce a separate JPEG file without the need of an outside computer. The EOS 60D gives you 10 process variables - brightness adjustment, white balance, Picture Style, Auto Lighting Optimizer, noise reduction, JPEG image-recording quality, color space, lens peripheral illumination correction, distortion correction, and chromatic aberrations correction - to create the image you envision, set to the 3:2 aspect ratio used in 35mm film

Additionally, once you capture an image with the EOS 60D, you can digitally manipulate it in-camera with a number of creative filters for artistic and dramatic effect. Options include Soft Focus Effect to convey dreamy tableaus; Grainy Black-and-White Effect for a gritty, hard-bitten look; Toy Camera Effect - the deliberate vignetting and color shift technique popular in art photography - and Miniature Effect, which blurs the top and bottom edges of the image to emphasize perspective and conveys a miniaturized look of the scene

Flexible Storage with Memory Cards
The EOS 60D DSLR uses popular SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. Compact, inexpensive and available in increasingly large capacities, SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards are a nice complement to the EOS 60D DSLR's compact and lightweight body design

The 60D can also gives you the option to store recordings to external media sources like USB 2.0 or Wireless LAN/Eye-Fi card (Canon cameras are not guaranteed to support Eye-Fi card functions, including wireless transfer)

Compatible with Canon EF and EF-S Lenses
The EOS 60D is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process. Special optical technologies, such as aspherical, ultra-low dispersion, or fluorite elements are featured in the universally acclaimed L-series lenses. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology is featured in select lenses to minimize the effect of camera shake. Additionally, photographers can use for video the same lenses they do for still photography; Canon wide-angle, macro, super-telephoto, tilt-shift and fisheye lenses provide a wealth of focal lengths, depth-of-field and other creative shooting options once reserved for stills
Flash Photography
With a flash sync speed of 1/250 of a second, the EOS 60D features the E-TTL II flash metering system. With any of the optional flashes in the EX Speedlite line, E-TTL II provides reliable flash output whether shooting fill-in flash pictures in sunlight, or using flash in total darkness. With E-TTL II, the exact same 35-zone metering sensor used for measuring ambient light is also used for flash metering - giving even finer metering command of the image area. If you prefer a broader area for flash metering, there's a menu setting to change to "Average" flash metering - where the entire 35-zone area is measured evenly for flash exposure. Additionally, the EOS 60D has a Speedlite transmitter built-in for convenient, full-featured wireless control of EX-series Speedlite flashes set as slave units

The optional Canon Speedlite 430EX II is a step-up accessory for powerful flash shooting with the EOS 60D. It has excellent flash power (maximum guide number of 141 ft/43m at ISO 100), and is the perfect way to get great flash pictures when you can't get right up to the subject. The 430EX II is also great for bounce flash, with its tilting and swiveling flash head. It automatically zooms the flash head to cover lenses ranging from 16mm up to 105mm or longer with the EOS 60D. Of course, it works with the camera to provide full E-TTL II automatic flash exposure. And the 430EX II has a powerful AF-assist beam, which allows the camera to autofocus even in total darkness on subjects as far as 32 ft. from the camera

Powerful Bundled Software
The EOS 60D comes bundled with an updated Canon EOS Digital Solution Disk, which features powerful software programs designed to extend the EOS experience to the computer. These include Canon's EOS Utility (Version 2.9.0), Digital Photo Professional (Version 3.9.1), ZoomBrowser EX for Windows (Version 6.6.0), ImageBrowser for Macintosh OS X (Version 6.6.0), the Picture Style Editor (Version 1.8.0), PhotoStitch (Version W: 3.1.22/M: 3.4.4), WFT Utility (version 3.5.1), Memory Card Utility (Version 1.4), WFT Utility (Version 3.5.1), Original Data Security Tools (Version 1.9.0). Each application is designed to make captured images look their best and to streamline the workflow.

    I just bought this camera and I am enjoying it already. Its like a mini 7D. I love how the sensor handles noise. And all the advanced features you expect to be there are there with some extras. Now the XXD line gets an artistic twist with articulated screen, flash transmitter, on the go raw processing and fun filters all in a unique feel. And the price is great. I love that it takes SD cards because I have many and that is what I prefer. I can see this camera being a huge hit to students who are looking for a cross between video and still photos.

    I also love that the top buttons have single functions rather than dual so you do not get confused of what your pressing and how to operated it quickly.

    The only thing that so far bothers me about this camera is the lock button for the mode dial. I never use to accidently turn it, but now it makes it harder to change quickly. Everything else is great to me.

    Well I've waited a year and a half to write this review so i can give my best honest opinion from my point of view- an amateur photographer who is highly enthusiastic and is wanting to turn it into a profession.

    It is worthy to note I use(ed) my 60D for personal travel photos, minor studio work, some video, low light events (such as parties/clubs, weddings) and most of all sports (soccer, rugby, cricket, surfing, Cycling)

    If you are looking to buy this camera, you are probably a beginner/now starting out. If you've owned any other DSLR before and you're thinking of "upgrading" to a 60D STOP RIGHT HERE AND REFFER TO A 7D INSTEAD... the 60D is a great beginners camera but thats it.

    I have out grown my 60D way too quickly. I'm just going to lists Pros and cons that I found in a non-geeky camera way:

    Pros:
    Very easy to learn. up to 6fps, great for beginners. The articulated screen is AWESOME and very durable incase you're wondering. 1.6 crop makes it good for that little extra telephoto capabilities, its surprisingly solid despite the plastic build (I've literally taken my 60D through rain forests, rivers, beaches, on boats, in -0 temps, I shot in the rain countless of times, and it all still works well.. plz keep in mind I did this cuz i have the extended warrantee and im one of those guys who wont mind breaking a camera to get the shot). overall its an awesome little camera that can take some damage...

    NOW THE CONS (why I feel as though I've out grown it and ready for a 5D MKIII):

    it is wayyyyyyy TOO NOISY at higher ISOs... even starting at ISO 1000. like I mentioned before, I shoot a lot of sports and I need a camer that can handle higher ISOs better so i can use a faster shutter speed. also the 9 auto focus points aren't cutting it for me. I love the Lexar Professional SDHC card that I use (32GB, x400), it buffers well with me shooting RAW s + S JPEG but I think im ready for a CF card or better yet a dual. The sensor in my opinion at these higher ISO speeds gets really unsharp (sorry if im not using the right terms, again im an amateur just giving my own experiences in the easiest way i can). I have a 70-200mm 2.8 non-IS but i use a monopod and while shooting some night time community soccer under decent flood lighting, my shots thought framed pretty good, were terribly noisy, blurry and out of focus... I believe this is due to the bad noise handeling, the low number of auto focus points and the inability to keep the action sharp 1/640+.

    If your intentions are like mine, you want to shoot fast action or you work in low lighting, consider another option (more likely around a higher price) but if your budget only permits you at this price and you shoot casually, or in well lit areas, this is a beautiful little camera.

    lastly, the kit lens, yuip u guest it, out grew that in a few months. Just like the 60D, its a great little starter lens but if you plan to grow with your camera, you may consider upgrading. My first lens buy was the 50mm 1.4. AWESOME LENS, its a MUST HAVE unless you have more money to burn and you get the L 1.2 (i'v used it and its even more awesome, but idk if the price difference justifies it at this stage.. may be for pros but not now). dont let the fact that its a prime scare you, it will train you to become better and more artistic with your work- i better go write a review for it now instead of chatting up on this one...lol

      Comments about Canon EOS 60D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

      I am still learning this camera, so my review is rather limited. I have used this camera for daytime shooting only, thus far, in both travel and on the job capacities. The controls are fairly intuitive, though they are located a bit differently than the older versions of the 60D that I had previously played with. I have yet to try the high ISO settings, so I'm looking forward to see how the camera does with that. I've found in the past that high ISO gives a grainier quality to the photo, so I'm hoping that will be reduced with this camera.

          Comments about Canon EOS 60D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

          I love my Canon 60D! It feels at home in my hands. It is so easy to use and creates great images. It can be used by either a beginning photographer, a more advanced or professional photographer. I use my Canon 60D for portraits, macro and land/seascapes mostly. It has excellent color, quality and ease of use. It can be used in auto mode for a quick shot or the more advanced creative modes if you want to add your own creative touches to your images.

          Comments about Canon EOS 60D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

          I purchased the EOS 60D in May as an upgrade for my EOS 20D. The 20D is an excellent camera, but it lacks ISO above 3200, megapixels, large tilt/swivel LCD and video. I have used the 60D for still photography only, so I have no comments about video.

          The image quality is excellent from ISO 100 to 3200. I have used it to take photos at two wedding as a guest during the ceremonies. The shutter is quieter than the 20D. At both weddings, the lighting was very low requiring ISO 6400, but the noise was acceptable even with photos printed at 8x10. The High Speed Continuous shooting works very well with a fast SD card. The Al Servo AF is very accurate and fast.

          I also spent a day in Custer State Park, SD with a wide variety of lighting conditions from clouds/fog to sunshine. The 60D performed very well and I was able to photograph numerous buffalo and pronghorn on the Wildlife Loop Road using an EF 100-400L lens. The battery life is excellent with approximately 450 photos using flash for about 150 of the photos and lens image stabilization for all of the photos which uses battery power.

          I miss the dedicated white balance button and joystick control on the 20D, and this is why I am rating the 60D as 4 stars. I am getting used to the Quick Control Screen and Multi-controller. I am satisfied with the build quality so far even though it is not professional grade.

          Comments about Canon EOS 60D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

          I have a Canon 50D which suits me well but needed to have a video shooting dslr for work (promotion videos, commercials for web...) 60D is a great value for the money. Only problem is the lower quality when recording in dark and missing changable autofocus when shooting video. Other then that I am satisfied.

            Comments about Canon EOS 60D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

            I had to save for this camera and it was worth the wait. I upgraded from a canon xs, which I loved. This has more bells and whistles than the xs. I noticed right off the bat the 60d handles low light much better. It also has a faster frames per second continuous shoot. It takes a little bit of time to learn how to adjust in manual mode(different from xs), but worth the time to learn. only draw back in my opinion is the weight. It gets a little heavy with 28-135 lens but probably all nicer models are heavier than the TI series. I absolutely LOVE my canon.

                    Complete control from let the camera do everything to you control everything - even post processing. All the features - including movie taking - are intimidating at first but are learned easily if you take it one at a time.

                        This is my first DSLR. I was intimidated to purchase and use one, but this has been really user friendly. I started with auto settings, and I have been learning to use the various settings one at a time. I think this is a great camera for a beginner.

                        A big selling point for me was the full articulating screen. This is really helpful for taking self portraits and detail shots/product shots at funny angles. I use the camera for both of these things and I like the way I can move the screen as needed.

                            The most useful thing is the ISO manager. You can control it easy

                              Comments about Canon EOS 60D DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                              Overall happy with the 'feel' of the camera. I use it for the 300mm lens and they work well together. The 60D is fast which is great for someone who tends to shake; love the flip out viewer, it really helps to get one under something or up above something without falling on one's face; my only real complaint is where the trash button is located. On my T2i it is on the bottom right of the camera body. On the 60D it is on the top left. It is rather difficult because I am not a leftie. But that is minor in the big picture (so to speak.)

                              Love the 60D

                              Very great camera
                              Easy to use and very nice design and set up
                              Love the manual exposure in video mode
                              Spin selection can be tricky at times
                              Can be difficult to find some settings
