Canon EOS 60D DSLR - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

From the Numero Uno Camera Company in the world, one of the most efficient DSLRs made available in the market is Canon EOS 60D, it is a mid range DSLR which features 18 Megapixels, HD video and a fully-articulated screen. At the time of announcement Canon EOS 60D Body Only was introduced as the successor to Canon EOS 50D, but later Canon repositioned this device from a semi-pro stage of its predecessor to the mid-range. So now Canon EOS 60D sits comfortably in between upper entry level Canon EOS 550D and semi pro Canon EOS 7D which allows it to go neck to neck to Nikon D90 and Nikon D700. This repositioning of the device has came across as pretty much of a heartache to all the existing owners who her hoping for a semi pro upgrade from devices like Canon EOS 40D and Canon EOS 50. Although there are many Positives of Canon EOS 60D, there are some flaws too. But then no device is flawless. Basically, Canon EOS 60D can be looked upon in two simple ways. First way is to make it rest perfectly alongside Canon EOS 550D and Canon EOS 7D and make it a mid range DSLR.


This device has a number of benefits packed in store for it and make if differentiable from the entry level devices and that too without being called a semi-pro models. So, just like in the case of Nikon D90 you are offered a wide variety of features without going through the cost, weight or the complexity of a semi-pro camera. In this approach Canon EOS 60D does not seem surprising but does what it is specifically meant to do. Other prospective is looking at Canon EOS 60D as the official successor to Canon EOS 50D, looking at the camera this way you will definitely be disappointed in one form or the other. Sure there are 3 extra Megapixels to the device, an array of movie options, an articulated screen with a nicer panel, wireless flash control and a number of in-camera post-processing options etc, but then stepping into the mid-range DSLR region has their own casualties.

Design and Build Quality

Canon EOS 60D, on paper may have been characterised as a mid-range DSLR category device from Canon. But when you look it from front it resembles the semi-pro line up a lot in terms of build, design and styling. Canon EOS 60D measures 145mm x 106mm x 79 mm and falls right in between Canon EOS 50D and Canon EOS 550D in size. An almost twin to this camera is Nikon’s D7000 which roughly measures the same in terms of height and depth but it is more than 1 cm narrower than the earlier. The mode dial of Canon EOS 60D offers the usual modes like the PASM mode, along with a separate Bulb position and a single Custom mode along with full Auto, Creative Auto, Flash Off, five presets and the Movie mode. In brief, Canon EOS 60D from its predecessor has gained a movie mode; got Bulb promoted to its own promotion and lost one custom mode.

Focus and Face Detection

Canon EOS 60D is the owner of the same 9 point AF system which was on Canon EOS 50D. Each and every point on the device is a cross-type which is sensitive to both horizontal and vertical lines when put on lenses of f5.6 or more. Also the centre point of the device is almost 2 times as sensitive as others when used with a lens aperture which is f2.8 or more. On paper, Canon EOS 60D’s 9 point AF system is crushed by 39 point AF system of Nikon D7000, but in the real word, it doesn’t make that much of a difference.


Lens and Image Stabilization

This is a body only review, so no lens is hoisted. But as such Canon EOS 60D is available with either the budget EF-S 18-55mm IS kit lens, which offers a basic 3x optical range that’s equivalent to 29-88mm, or the more recent EF-S 18-135mm IS which offers a much longer range equivalent to 29-216mm.

Screen and Menus

From a long time Canon did not involve the use of fully articulated screen in any of DSLR to feature a fully articulated screen, but looking at the fortunes earned by rivals, I guess Canon has decide to go the other way in this device and Canon EOS 60D becomes the first Canon DSLR to feature a fully articulated screen. The articulated mount is really the only special thing in Canon EOS 60D’s screen special, it also comes with the superb TFT panel which was seen the very first time on Canon EOS 550D. This panel measures a big 3 inches and applies a wide 3:2 aspect ratio as default, which matches the shape of the images perfectly. Most of the cameras use 4:3 as the default aspect ratio which means that 3:2 images will have black bar over and below them when viewed. Not so on Canon EOS 60D, it fills the screen in Live View or playback.


The powerhouse of Canon EOS 60D is the same LP-E6 battery which also featured on Canon EOS 7D and EOS 5D Mark II: an 1800mAh Lithium Ion pack which Canon claims is good for up to 1600 shots through the viewfinder without flash, this is really a highly significant increase over Canon EOS 7D which can only provide 1000 shots, given the same condition. The camera also provides an effective 350 minutes of video recording on the device.

Video Mode

Canon EOS 60D now becomes Canon's latest DSLR to offer HD video recording, and shares the same core modes as the Canon EOS 550D and Canon EOS 7D before it. It also features an external microphone input and the ability to manually set audio levels, while the icing on the cake is the fully-articulated screen which allows you to film comfortably at unusual angles.Starting with the actual video quality, the EOS 60D gives you have the choice of filming at either Full HD 1920x1080, HD1280x720 or VGA 640x480 pixels.


Canon EOS 60D features an 18 Megapixel CMOS sensor. The physical size and pixel count is certainly identical: the EOS 60D's sensor measures 22.3x14.9mm and generates 3:2 aspect ratio images with a maximum resolution of 5184x3456 pixels. ISO Sensitivity of Canon EOS 60D ranges from a huge 100-12800.


Excellent photo quality, decent video, good performance overall, great lowlight response. Even if you are new to SLR cameras, you will find this quite easily manageable.


Live view focusing is slow, but you can set it to use one shot mode in live view, and that will improve the time it take to focus at the expense of momentarily blinking the screen.

To the gentleman comparing the 60D to 5D
by Sharat Goswami on 2013-12-30

I'd just like to point out that the 5D is a significantly more expensive camera than the 60D. The 5D Mark II is about 1 lakh 20 while the 5D Mark III is 2.5 lakhs. One is semi-professional designed
