"Canon EOS 60D Review" - Digital Photography Podcast 251

The EOS 60Dis a creative departure from Canon's normally conservative upgrade philosophy. The magnesium construction that many loved with the 50D has been replaced by an aluminium and polycarbonate resin body. The LCD is now hinged, allowing it to swing and swivel. And in general, the 60D just looks different than its predecessors. It's really a whole new DSLR.

Canon 60D with Articulated Screen

And how does it perform? In this week's show, I walk you through some of its best features, and a few of its missteps. But the bottom line is, if you're looking to upgrade from a Rebel, like to shoot HD video, and want more control over your photography, the EOS 60D is a camera to seriously consider.

I bought the EOS about a week ago or so, but I wouldn't really say it's a real step away from the normal Canon mentality. Yes, it's upgraded, but not a heck of a lot in the big picture to be fair and my current equivalent sony is actually not bad in comparison, of course Fuji is still the best out of Japana (not CN made ones).

But, for the money...it's not bad, I'll still update after more use.
