Having previously owned a Canon d60 and 10d, the canon 60d was the next step up for me as 8 wanted to move into the amateur world of HD film. I'm glad to report that I purchased this camera nearly 2 years ago and have thus given it a good run in.
I simply cannot fault it. I use the body with with a Sigma L lens for studio and location work. The functions are very easy to use, no complaints there. The LED screen allows you to really zoom in when previewing your fleshly taken pictures, this enables to to see if you have infant got them in focus.
The HD video facility is second to none for a cam in this price range and I'd say that it's of broadcast standard in the right hands. I was even pleased to see a program on Sky a few weeks ago that consisted of poor quality footage. It seemed that my efforts in videoing on this cam were far superior than a broadcasted effort. The only issue that I find with videoing is that you need a VERY steady a hand to capture good shots. Ideally you should mount the 60D on a tripod or other good DSLR gadgets to enable you to get the pro shots.
It's a solid camera that I'd say produces very professional looking shots. I have used this cam for wedding and portrait photography. Always shoot in RAW mode as it gives you plenty of post processing options to enhance your pictures to make them stands out from the rest!
Summary: Little effort required to produce professional looking photos
