Let’s be clear, this camera is not a straight line upgrade from the 50D so if that’s what you are expecting you may be surprised or disappointed. Canon is clearly repositioning the xxD line. The xxD line has always been in a bit of an odd space. Not an entry level DSLR, where Canon has the XS and T2i, which really isn’t entry level any more, but not quite a pro camera, so what is it really? The 60D lacks some of the features needed to be considered a real Semi-Pro or “ProSumer� camera, whatever that is; however there are plenty of people doing pro work with Rebels, in theory a less capable camera series. It’s ultimately about the pictures and here the 60D can shine with the best of them. IQ is terrific, on par with the more expensive 7D and little brother T2i due to the same 18mp sensor and Digic 4, high ISO performance while not revolutionary is very good, FPS at 5.3 is quick and good enough for most sports action and more. For a serious Enthusiast who wants a lot of features, better build and better performance (FPS, better metering, better battery life, etc.) than a Rebel this maybe the camera. Focusing is quick and accurate, the camera handles well in use, and controls are well positioned and easy to understand if you’ve had any other Canon. This is clearly an upgrade over the T2i, a very capable camera in its own right. In fact unless you’re doing really demanding Pro work you probably don’t need more than this, really. If you don’t need 9FPS and lens micro adjustment, metal body and the higher price tag of the 7D but want more than the Rebels look at the 60D. The articulating screen alone may make this purchase worthwhile; meanwhile you have a top notch Enthusiast camera capable of pro level results.

I have owned XXD and Rebel series cameras since the D30 (3MP) and original digital Rebel. I was looking forward to a replacement to my 50D but to be honest, I was so disappointed in the 60D I returned it after three days. The image quality is as good as it gets in this class, but the build and feature set are Rebel class. In many ways, this was a downgrade from my 50D due to the plastic body, SD card slot, and absence of lens micro adjustment. Had this camera been sold as a T3i/600D, it would have been a perfect replacement for my XSI. But I need something more rugged for my part-time pro work. The image quality is first-rate and I almost kept the camera just for the superb swivel screen. I hope Canon incorporates that feature on all of its new cameras. This would be a good camera for the first-time DSLR buyer, but than so is the T2i at a substantial savings. In the end however, I just couldn't justify a Rebel series camera as a replacement for my rock solid 50D, so I returned the camera (at a 15% loss). What helped my decision was two days after I bought the camera, a competitor released a camera with 39-point AF system with 3D tracking and 2,016 pixel RGB metering sensor, metal body, GPS compatible, twin memory card slots (though SD) - the camera the 60D should have been. Maybe when the 70D comes out?

          I have used Canon SLR cameras for the last 20 years, upgrading about every 4 years to a newer model. My most recent purchase was the 60D. I love the ability to shoot video through this camera. I think the image quality is very good, but would like to have an auto focus feature when shooting video. Like many others who have purchased the 60D, my camera is no longer working. The card reader stopped working. This is unacceptable given the price I paid and the associated expectations. After researching the issue over the internet I understand that this is a common problem.

                I have been using the 60D for over a year now and have been extremely happy with it. Will be loking for a replacement for my XSi which is still performing very well...

                    I wrote a review a few years ago when I first got this camera, and thought I'd add a long term update. 3 years of use and my 60D works as well as the day I bought it. Still looks brand new in fact. I'm pretty meticulous with taking care of my cameras, but nevertheless I'm very impressed with how well it has held up. It's been to Canada and Florida, and many places in between, including on ski slopes, in boats, and in very dusty gymnasium environments. I've taken many thousands of pictures with nary a problem. I originally bought this camera to use for taking gymnastics pictures of my kids, which is a challenging task. Low light, no flash allowed, very fast action, and you are generally sitting up in the bleachers. My favorite lens with this camera for shooting gymnastics is my Canon 85mm f1.8 USM prime. I generally shoot at 1/500 and f1.8, and even in the poor lighting I can often still shoot at ISO 800, even at 1/500. The autofocus works really well for the most part, especially with the USM lens, even on events like floor exercise where the kids are moving around really fast and the depth of field is constantly shifting. I have gotten some great pics over the years, and rarely miss shots with this camera. The high burst rate for this camera works wonderfully too, for those action sequences you want to capture. I've been equally happy taking portraits, nature pics, and just plain old family and vacation pics with this camera as well. I have the 18-135mm kit lens, the 55-250mm zoom, the "nifty fifty" 50mm f 1.8 prime, and the 85mm f 1.8 prime I mentioned above. I use them all and I'm really pleased with the pictures I've gotten with all of those lenses and my 60D. My family is always asking me to take pics of their kids, because this camera does such a great job. Two of my brothers recently went and bought Canon DSLR's for themselves (a T3i and a T4i) after seeing what my 60 D could do. I love the 60D though, because I use the LCD on the top of the body far more than I ever would have thought. It's just so handy for making quick adjustments to settings - something to definitely consider if you are struggling to decide whether you need it or not. I will never buy a camera without it again, personally. Since I shoot video with this camera as well, I should also emphasize the flip out LCD on the back. For video, having that articulated screen is priceless. You can tilt the screen and cradle the camera while shooting and it's soooo much more comfortable than holding a camera without the adjustable screen. Also, you can close the screen when shooting pics to keep it from ever getting scratched. My screen is still pristine after 3 years of use, thanks to being able to close it! My 60D's reliability has been outstanding and I have just loved this camera! Great battery life too. I have two batteries, but have never had to resort to my back up during a single day of shooting. My teenaged daughter has recently taken an interest in photography, and has been borrowing my camera. She has learned to use it very quickly, so that is a testament to the fairly intuitive menus, etc, and shows that a novice can learn with this camera pretty quickly with a little practice. She tells me it's time to pass my camera along to her and pick up a new one for myself. Based on my experience with the 60D, I will have no hesitation whatsoever with buying another Canon DSLR. I'm looking really hard at the 70D, though I may wait and see which features are on the 7D Mark II when it comes out (like whether it has a flip out screen). I'd love to consider bumping up to full frame, but only if Canon adds the articulated flip out LCD to one of those models (hint, hint). The flip out is just too handy for video for me to consider a camera without it at this point, though I can see why people who just focus on pictures might not care as much. At any rate, the 60D has been a truly outstanding camera for me, and has exceeded all of my expectations! Still in love with it 3 years later, and highly recommend it!

                        The camera is average. The main problem I encountered was the poor mic quality. When adding an external mic for stereo separation, the sound was completely distorted. I mainly use the camera for video.
                        Also, after recording video for 5 seconds into the recording, it would stop and I would have to record again. I was recommended using a class 10 card but even this caused the same error. I don't think it is an overheating issue. I hope canon gets their act straight on the 70d
                        If I could recommend the canon 60d it would be for photos, for Video? Sorry because of the poor mic quality when attaching an external mic.
