A Successor That Has A Lot Of New Features
Canon EOS 60D
Member Name: anchanroku
Canon EOS 60D
Advantages: Has a lot of new features: high resolution LCD, great video recording, iFCL, and new control button.
Disadvantages: Body is made of plastic
60D body is shiny, sturdy, and equipped with many serious features although made of plastic. A little update from the EOS 50D, this is the first Canon SLR camera that uses the LCD which can be rotated!! (can be played almost anywhere).
There is a slight simplification of the face on the buttons in the back. Canon combined fast control button and the multi-control play button into a dual control system. This feature combines a controller with eight directions surrounding the play button, plus a button set in the middle.
However, that button is easy to use, though need to get used to it first.
Similar to the 550D and 7D, 60D camera has 18Mp sensor and new light measurement systems - iFCL. The iFCL feature is very good at measuring the light on the main object of the designated auto focus point.
We also liked the photo rating system that has been embedded in the camera. We can see the photos on the LCD and give a value between 0 to 5. This assessment makes photos sorting so quickly before it is inserted into a PC.
Another bonus is the wireless flash control. These features simplify the process of taking pictures with flash. However Canon still uses a PC flash socket. Video recording feature works perfectly, making the 60D is a versatile camera at this price.
Summary: "Video recording feature works perfectly, making the 60D is a versatile camera at this price!!"
