Who It’s For:
The Canon EOS 60D is Canon’s upper entry level camera, similar to the NIkon D5100. This camera if for amateur photographs who want a wider array of features than the Rebel but do not want to make the jump to a full frame camera.
What We Like:
Low Light Performance: The 60D has very managble noise for a 1.6x crop.
Solid Build Quality: Despite its plastic frame, the camera still feels solid.
Fast Autofocus: While it’s not the next generation of autofocus systems, it still does a great job.
Speed: For this price point, 6fps is great and more than you’ll need for most situations.
Build In Wireless Control
Custom Shooting Modes
Vari-Angle LCD: this is great for shooting at weird angles or in tight spaces
What We Don’t
Lack of Dedicated Buttons: The pop out LCD screen eliminates a lot of the dedicated buttons that you would have on the back of the camera, making some functions a two handed affair.
Amaturish Preset Buttons: I can see the use of these on an entry level camera, but at this price point I don’t quite see the need for them and I don’t see them being used all that often.
