It shoots fast and handles smoothly. It's got hands-on SLR features for photography enthusiasts, but it's also as easy to use as any point-and-shoot camera. If you love taking pictures and you want to step up your game, the Canon EOS 60D should definitely be on your short list. You'll revel in the realism and depth of the photos you capture, right from day one. The 60D also boasts a 1080p HD video mode with full manual control of shutter speed and aperture to give your movies the exact look you want. And you can connect it directly to your compatible HDTV with an optional mini HDMI cable to share your freshly filmed clips and pics.
The EOS 60D comes supplied here with Canon's top-notch 18-200mm image stabilizing zoom lens. This combo offers a highly versatile range of wide angle and telephoto shooting options, plus the superior low-light performance and blur-fighting capability provided by image stabilization technology.
Keep on shooting when the lights get low
This cam's sensitive 18-megapixel CMOS image sensor records breathtaking photos with eye-popping detail. Canon gave the 60D an extra-wide sensitivity range to ensure you'll never miss a shot because of poor lighting conditions. Its extended high ISO settings make it ideal for night shots or indoor settings, where the lack of light would normally make shooting impossible. The 60D also offers Canon's Auto Lighting Optimizer, which automatically corrects the contrast and brightness of your images as they're recorded. This helps preserve subtle photographic details of complex subjects, like sunny highlights on your kids' faces against the deeply shadowed woods behind them.
Flexible LCD design
The EOS 60D is Canon's first-ever SLR with a tilt-and-swivel LCD. This bright, high-res screen lets you preview your camera settings in real time, making it easier than ever to grab fantastic looking shots of fast-moving action. Hold your camera up high or down low when you're composing your shots, and simply tilt the screen toward you so you can see it. This feature works out really well for shooting over the heads in a crowd, or taking low-level macro shots without stooping. Activate the on-screen electronic level to make certain your landscapes have perfectly straight horizons. The screen even flips around face-in to protect it when you travel.
You don't have to be an expert photographer to use an SLR they all offer easy automatic shooting. Because of their build quality and the physics of good glass and large sensors, even their built-in automatic settings will get you better pictures than most point-and-shoots or mobile devices. But experienced photographers and budding hobbyists can get more creative by manually adjusting settings like aperture and shutter speed. SLRs let you expand your shooting options with additional lenses and flashes to suit just about any situation. If you'd like to record the occasional video, look for a model with high-def movie mode.
Very high ISO range allows for indoor photos when flash not allowed.
Pros: Quiet operation, spot focusing if desired, high ISO for indoor shots.
Cons: Heavy with the 18 - 200 mm lens,
I needed to get great pictures of my kids in all their sports. This camera really performs!
The 60D is a great camera, fun to use. It doesn't have the image quality of a "full-frame" DSLR, but it's noticeably better than the entry-level models. The 18-200mm lens is very nice. No need to change lenses when going from telephoto to close-up or wide angle. The only downside is quality. No superzoom can match the image quality of a good prime lens. (Too much distortion, etc.) Still, I really like this lens and find it to be extremely useful.
Pros: Good camera. Very versatile lens.
Cons: Lens distortion.
Camera came exactly as expected and the lens for it's value is superior
I've been a life-long Minolta user from film SLRs to my last Konica-Minolta Maxxuum 7D. I thought I'd continue on with Sony after they bought K-M since I have all the lenses. However, after hearing from my brother about Canon and then checking out Consumer Reports, I had to go with Canon EOS 60D. The reviews were awesome. The price and deals were spot on with Crutchfield. Plus, the ability to take HD videos intrigued me. I haven't used the video option yet, but plan to on our ocean beach vacation. I expect the action photos will be just as incredible as the action shots I've taken at my son's baseball games. I've received many compliments on the photos. The continuous burst shots are great! I'm glad I decided to change to the Canon. I know it's always been a reliable brand for years.
Pros: Easy to use; great pictures; live view LCD screen; flip screen; auto-flash
Cons: Can't think of any
My wife and I argued a wee bit between the 60D and the Nikon D5100. Now, I think I know what you're going to say, "There's no comparison, the 60D is a better camera." Well, you're right when you consider where the 60D falls into the "pro-summer" line-up, as the D5100 doesn't. But, I loved the feel and weight of the D5100 and the fact that it took so-so and noisy video (the 60D takes excellent video). I didn't want a SLR to shoot video. I wanted to take great stills. Well, the 60D does and that was that, as I liked the camera as well. So, the wife won with the 60D. No regrets. But, here's the the real joy. It's the 18-200mm lens. We also added a 50mm f1.8 for portrait work. So, we've got all the lenses we will need and for sometime. So, please take some advice and consider the number of lenses you'll have to lug around. Heavy is heavy. The less you carry, the better. Meanwhile, I'm back to taking action shots as my dog likes to leap in the air to get his toys. What gorgeous pictures!
Pros: Features, ease of use, weather and dust tight, weight and balance.
Cons: Batteries and ridiculously expensive! Buy a car charger so you can keep the battery charged between uses when out and about.
I like having the modes where it is not fully automatic, yet I don't have to know aperture, shutter speed, etc. I can use the easier modes while learning how to use the more complex modes. I was able to get some incredible shots in sports mode. Got a friends dog in the air as he was running for a ball. It is great to have a camera where I can capture good action shots like that. I cannot wait to learn more and take advantage of the other great features on this camera.
Pros: Action shots, pin point focus. Overall look, feel and weight.
Got this for my wife's birthday. She's been looking to upgrade from her Canon XT
and we couldn't be happier. Takes great shots in almost any setting. More than
enough features for us and the controls are easy with quick access. The 18-
200mm lens is a little heavy compared to the lightweight body, but we knew that
beforehand (we visited a local story to try it out) and don't mind the 'sacrifice,' esp
since she keeps the 50mm lens attached most of the time, which is very light
weight. The grip and overall 'how it holds' is much better than the T2i, which we
All in all, we love it!
I used point n'shoot cameras all my life and was little affraid to buy a D-SLR due to its
complex options/menus. But I was pleasently surprise to see how easy it is shoot great
pictures and stunning 1080 HD videos with this camera. With 18mm to 200mm lense I can
take wide angle as well zoom pictures. I downloaded 14 training videos from CanonUSA.com
site and also read manual to learn. By no means it made me a professional BUT enough to
take better quality pictures. It is quite simple to use. I can tweek the pictures with the
software that comes with the camera.
A Great Buy.

Lens Compatibility: The Canon EOS 60D digital SLR camera is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S lineup. This gives you a wide range of lenses to choose from, from ultra-wide angle to super-telephoto lenses. This kit includes the Canon EF-S 18-200mm IS zoom lens.
Viewfinder: The EOS 60D features an eye-level, pentaprism optical viewfinder with approximately 96% coverage. It has a built-in diopter so you can adjust the viewfinder to your eyesight with or without glasses. Separate dioptric adjustment viewfinder lenses (from +2 to -4), available from Canon, can be installed on the camera, if desired. When using the self-timer or remote control, the supplied eyepiece cover, attached to the neck strap, can be used to prevent light from entering the eyepiece.
Vari-angle Clear View LCD Monitor: The EOS 60D features a 3" Clear View TFT color LCD monitor with approximately 1,040,000 dots which allows you to view and shoot real-time images. The monitor swivels out and rotates up to 270° for shooting at difficult angles. The LCD monitor offers 100% viewing coverage and 7 brightness levels to choose from. The LCD monitor's anti-reflection and water-repellant coating provides a clearer and more smudge-resistant surface and a light sensor integrated into the screen enables automatic brightness adjustment in accordance with ambient light.
Live View: The Live View Function enables you to shoot still images or videos while viewing the image on the camera's LCD monitor. The Final Image Simulation function lets you view the effects of the camera's settings on the photo you are taking. You can check the color, white balance, lighting, exposure, depth of field, and aspect ratio before you take the shot.
Dual Axis Electronic Level: The EOS 60D also features a new Dual Axis Electronic Level and tilt display that aids in achieving perfectly level shots, displaying both roll and pitch in 1° increments, either in the viewfinder or on the LCD.
Grid Display: The grid display superimposes vertical and horizontal lines in the monitor during Live View to help you compose your pictures. You can choose from Grid 1 which divides the monitor into 9 sections--3 vertical and 3 horizontal. Grid 2 divides the monitor into 24 sections--4 vertical and 6 horizontal.
18.0 Megapixel CMOS Sensor: The EOS 60D features a Canon-designed 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size (22.3 x 14.9mm) CMOS sensor that captures a high level of resolution so 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 image sensor has a 3:2 aspect ratio with 19-million total pixels (5432 H x 3492 V) and 18-million effective pixels (5200 H x 3462 V).
Sensor Cleaning: The camera has a self-cleaning sensor unit attached to the image sensor's front-layer (low-pass filter) to shake off dust automatically. The dust delete data can also be appended to the image so that the dust spots remaining can be erased automatically by the provided Digital Photo Professional software.
Note: Dust which could not be removed by the automatic sensor cleaning can be removed manually with a blower.
DIGIC 4 Image Processor: The EOS 60D's DIGIC 4 Image Processor ensures that images are captured, processed, and saved with remarkable speed. This improved processor makes possible a new 3:2 multiple aspect ratio, in-camera RAW image processing, creative filters, image resizing with new S2 and S3 image-recording quality. Large 18MP images can be shot at 5.3 fps. The chip's 14-bit signal processing give you excellent image gradation, enhanced Face Detection Live mode, Full HD video recording, and the Auto Lighting Optimizer.
Recording Media: The EOS 60D records images onto SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards. The camera is also compatible with Eye-Fi cards, which allow you to automatically transfer captured images to a personal computer or upload them to an online service via a wireless LAN.
Note: No recording media is supplied with the camera.
Image Recording Format: The camera records still images in JPEG and RAW (14-bit) formats in 3:2 aspect ratio. During Live View Shooting, you can also record images in 4:3, 16:9 or 1:1 aspect ratio. Simultaneous RAW+JPEG recording is also possible. In addition, the camera can record video in the MOV format (Video: MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, Audio: Linear PCM). Audio is recorded in monaural using the built-in microphone, or in stereo with an external stereo microphone (sold separately).
Note: Video recording is only available in Live View Mode using the camera's LCD monitor.
Drive Modes: The Canon EOS 60D offers the following Drive (Shutter) modes.
Note: The Canon EOS 60D is compatible with the following IR wireless remote controls (RC-1 or RC-5), so you can shoot remotely up to approximately 16.4 feet.
AF System: The EOS 60D features a 9-point, cross-type Auto Focus system. With f/5.6 and faster lenses, all 9 AF points are sensitive to both vertical and horizontal lines. With f/2.8 lenses, the camera's center AF point's sensitivity to vertical and horizontal lines is about twice as sensitive as the other AF points. You can manually select any of the 9 AF points to autofocus.
AF Modes: You can select the AF mode to suit the shooting conditions or subject. In Basic Zone modes, the most suitable AF mode is set automatically. You can choose from the following AF modes:
Manual Focus: When autofocus fails due to conditions or lighting, you can focus manually by setting the switch on the lens to MF and turning the focus ring until the subject looks sharp in the viewfinder.
AF Assist Beam: The camera's built-in flash (or an attached external flash) will fire a series of flashes in a row to assist during auto-focusing in low-light situations. This AF-assist beam is effective up to approximately 13.1 feet.
Shooting Modes: The EOS 60D offers various different shooting modes, which are selectable on the top-mounted Mode Dial. The modes are divided into zones: Creative Zone, Image Zone, and Basic Zone. To avoid accidently changing the shooting mode, the mode dial has a lock, requiring you to hold down the lock-release button while you turn the dial. The Shooting Modes are as follows:
Exposure Compensation: Exposure compensation is used to alter the camera's standard exposure setting. You can make the image look lighter (increased exposure) or darker (decreased exposure). The exposure compensation amount can be set up to +/-5 stops in 1/3-stop increments, however, the viewfinder and LCD can only display the setting up to +/-3 stops.
Auto Exposure Bracketing: With auto exposure bracketing (AEB), the camera automatically changes the exposure level up to +/-3 stops in 1/3-stop increments for three successive shots. If the Drive Mode is set to Single Shot, you will have to press the shutter button three times. If set to Continuous shooting, the three bracketed shots will be taken continuously.
AE Lock: AE lock enables you to lock the exposure at a different place from the point of focus. After locking the exposure, you can recompose the shot while maintaining the desired exposure level. This feature is useful for backlit and spotlighted subjects.
63-Zone Dual-Layer Metering Sensor: The EOS 60D features a new, 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 new system delivers an entirely new level of accuracy for better 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. You can select from the following metering modes:
ISO Speed: When shooting in the Creative Zone, the camera's ISO speed can be set manually between 100 and 6400 in 1/3-stop or 1-stop increments to suit your shooting conditions. In addition the camera features an Auto ISO setting which allows the camera to automatically set the ISO speed from 100 to 6400. When using the Basic Zone modes, the ISO speed is set automatically. When in Auto ISO, you can set the maximum ISO speed to 400, 800, 1600, 3200, or 6400. ISO Expansion allows you to set the speed to the equivalent of ISO 12800 if needed.
Built-in Flash: The Canon EOS 60D digital SLR camera features a built-in flash, which will pop up and fire automatically in Basic Zone modes. In the Creative Zone modes, you can pop up the flash manually when you wish to use the flash. When Red-eye Reduction is applied, a pre-flash will prevent the red-eye effect for most photos. Flash Exposure Compensation allows you to make the flash exposure darker or brighter +/-3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.
External Flash: You can mount an external flash unit to the camera's hot shoe. The camera is compatible with Canon's external EX-series Speedlites (sold separately). The camera's built-in flash can work as a master unit with Canon Speedlites having a wireless slave feature and wirelessly trigger the Speedlite to fire.
Auto Lighting Optimizer: If an image comes out dark or the contrast is low, the brightness and contrast can be corrected automatically. With JPEG images, the correction is done when the image is captured.
Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction: Due to lens characteristics, the four corners of a picture might look darker. This is called lens light fall-off or drop in peripheral illumination. With JPEG images, the correction is done when the image is captured.
Picture Style: By selecting a picture style you can achieve various effects matching your photographic expression or the subject. You can also adjust the Sharpness, Contrast, Saturation and Color tone of each Picture Style. Picture Style selections include:
White Balance: You can choose from the following white balance settings:
Color Space: The color space refers to the range of reproducible colors. With this camera, you can set the color space for captured images to sRGB or Adobe RGB. For normal images, sRGB is recommended. In the camera's Basic Zone modes, sRGB will be set automatically.
Histogram: A histogram is a graph showing the brightness of an image. The graph display indicates a bright image when skewed to the right side, and a dark image when skewed to the left side.
Mirror Lockup: The Mirror Lockup feature helps prevent camera vibration when using a super telephoto lens or shooting close-ups.
Multi-Language: The camera's menus system supports 25 different languages including English, French and Spanish.
Standard Zoom Design: The Canon EF-S 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 IS standard zoom lens' focal range gives you versatile wide-angle and telephoto shooting options. It features a wide focal length range equivalent to 29-320mm in the 35mm format.
Optical Image Stabilizer: The lens features an Optical Image Stabilizer for up to 4-stops of effective correction even at full zoom. Since the Optical Image Stabilizer system is in the lens, not in the camera, you can see the stabilized, steadier images through the viewfinder. The Stabilizer switch is located on the barrel of the lens.
Auto/Manual Focus Modes: To shoot in Auto Focus mode, you must set the focus mode switch on the lens to "AF." The Auto Focus adjustment is gear-driven by a DC monitor. To manually focus the camera, you must set the switch to "MF," and focus by turning the focusing ring. The AF/MF switch is located on the barrel of the lens.
Optional Accessories: You can attach optional filters (72mm) to the filter mounting thread on the front of the lens. You can also use the optional EF 12 II and EF 25 II extension tubes. The following accessories are also available:
