Canon EOS 60D Price in US

Since its inception, Canon’s X0D series has been able to attract a diverse audience of photography amateurs, semi-professionals, and even some professional photographers who value the availability of a portable and lightweight solution. For consumers who have outgrown their Rebel or XX0D series camera, each model offered a high enough specification (typically in terms of build quality and AF sophistication) to guarantee that it was both aspirational and achievable for them to upgrade to. The feature set, on the other hand, has always left a substantial gap below the company’s fully-fledged ‘pro’ devices.

Canon EOS 60D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera Body...

Canon has unabashedly shifted the X0D series away from the “semi pro” bracket with the release of the 60D and has instead concentrated on the hobbyist photographer wishing to upgrade from their Rebel camera. As a consequence of this, it is not the transparent continuation of the pattern that runs from 30D to 40D to 50D as its nomenclature may imply it to be. Instead, it is placed quite well and exactly in the same market position that the ‘Elan’ series of 35mm film SLRs formerly held in the past. This position was once occupied by the Elan series (which in Europe were not-so-coincidentally given double-digit model numbers).

As a result, the magnesium alloy structure that was included in earlier versions has been removed and replaced with a plastic shell that is less in weight. Naturally, the 60D receives some key’step up’ features from the Rebel series, including a couple that have trickled down from the EOS 7D. These features include a top panel LCD, a rear control dial, and a greater burst rate. Additionally, there has a video-friendly 3:2 ratio articulated LCD that is compatible with tripods. In terms of image, it brings the EOS mid-range up to par with those above and below it by increasing the sensor resolution to around 18 megapixels and adding the ability to record movies in full high definition.

The Canon EOS 60D has also been updated with a few of its very own brand-new features. When using the scene modes, there is now a broad variety of color adjustments (also known as “Ambiences”) that can be made to the image, and the result of these adjustments may be evaluated on screen using the Live View feature. In-camera conversion of raw data to jpeg format is now finally possible with the Canon EOS 60D. This feature also includes the option to adjust for lens imperfections like as distortion and chromatic aberration. You have the extra benefit of being able to go back and apply new “Creative Filters” to files that you have already taken. These new “Creative Filters” include the “Grainy Black and White” and “Toy Camera” styles.

The Canon EOS 60D is positioned almost exactly halfway between the Canon EOS 550D and the Canon EOS 7D in terms of its specifications and features, but it adds a few additional bells and whistles of its own. Which is precisely where it ought to be, in our opinion (despite of the anticipated screams of outrage at the seeming “dumbing down” of the time-honored X0D line), as we believe this to be the case.

7.3Expert Score
Good

It is possible that the term “super Rebel” best describes the Canon 60D. It is a variant of Canon’s entry-level DSLRs, which are justifiably popular, that is easier to use, more adaptable, and quicker to operate. Still photographers will enjoy the camera’s dual dial controls, improved grip, and larger viewfinder; aspiring filmmakers, on the other hand, will appreciate the articulated screen and movie control.

Pros
  • Superior image quality all the way up to ISO values that were unimaginable only one camera generation ago.
  • Exceptionally great detail and resolution at the native ISO, as well as good sharpness per pixel
  • Very high performance in low light, with low noise levels and a good capacity for retaining information.
  • Excellent ergonomics, an attractive and comfortable form, with a secure hand grip
  • User interface that may be customized
  • Easy creative possibilities are provided by the camera's built-in raw conversion settings and Creative Filters.
  • The LCD display is of the highest quality and is articulating (great for videographers and tripod users)
  • The Q-Menu found on-screen provides convenient access to the shooting settings.
  • High-quality video output in 1080p and 720p resolutions, with selectable frame rates and full control over exposure
  • A port for microphones that are external
  • Highlight tone priority mode that is helpful.
  • Long life of the battery
  • Complete collection of software applications
Cons
  • The value of having an articulated screen for still photography is diminished when the autofocus in Live Mode is slow.
  • Under artificial light, the white balance frequently leans overly orange.
  • A little propensity to overexpose in environments with a lot of contrast.
  • Choices for post-processing are strangely organized (and do not allow access to the available options for Ambience).
  • The plastic structure does not provide the same level of reassurance as its metal-bodied competitors.
