The new multi-control Dial enables users to conveniently operate menus and enter settings with a simple touch. The 60D also features an EOS first: A Vari-angle 3.0-inch Clear View articulating LCD (1,040,000 dots) monitor for easy low- or high-angle viewing. An improved viewfinder, a number of new in-camera creative options and filters, plus HDMI output for viewing images on an HDTV all make the EOS 60D invaluable for the evolving photographer.
The compact, inexpensive and available in increasingly large capacities; SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards are a perfect complement to the EOS 60D DSLR's compact and lightweight body design. The 60D is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S line-up, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology is featured in select lenses to minimize the effect of camera shake. Additionally, photographers can use the same lenses, for video, they do for still photography; Canon wide-angle, macro, super-telephoto, tilt-shift and fisheye lenses, providing a wealth of focal lengths, depth-of-field and other creative shooting options once reserved for stills. The 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 60D gives 10 process variables like 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. The Canon 60D is loaded with multiple software’s like – Canon EOS Digital Solution Disk, EOS Utility for Mac or Windows; Digital Photo Professional, ZoomBrowser or ImageBrowser based on the OS and Picture Style Editor.
However, many reviewers feel the 60D to be bulky and heavy. This camera gets noisy at ISO 6400 shooting and has a cumbersome autofocus or no autofocus during video shooting. Some reviewers also felt that shifting from images to video mode takes time.
Overall, the Canon EOS 60D DSLR Camera is a perfect up-gradation from entry level for its value for money features and 1 year warranty. With continuously curved surfaces, user-friendliness and exuding solidity and refinement, the EOS 60D is true digital inspiration!
