DSLR is considered to be the most wanted camera gear, for those who are passionate about photography. This post is about my beloved but old Canon 60D.
Canon 60D is an 18.1 megapixels DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera. It was released back in August, 2010 and is successor of the EOS 50D and is predecessor of the EOS 70D.
- 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor
- ISO 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800)
- 5.3 fps continuous shooting
- 1080p HD video recording with manual controls
- SD / SDHC / SDXC storage
- In-camera raw development
- Subject modes with ‘Ambience Selection’ (Standard, Vivid, Soft, Warm, Intense, Cool, Brighter, Darker and Monochrome)
- In-camera Creative Filters (special effects)
- Fully articulated 3.0″ screen (3:2)
60D was my very first digital SLR camera and I haven’t doubted its ability for once. Although 60D isn’t told to be a professional – level camera, I have had no problem producing high quality images with this camera (Not that I shoot professional level..). Weddings, parties, portraitures, studio shots, etc.
I would recommend this camera even as a second hand, rather than buying new 700d or equivalent. Canon’s entry – level cameras do not have LCD screen on the top of body, which is extremely handy. (This tells you what settings you are using / Otherwise you would click on menu every now and then to check your current settings!)
Owning a fancy and monstrous full frame DSLR would be wonderful, but as photographic gears tends to put a massive hole in your bank accounts every now and then, 60d won’t disappoint you for a budget!
