The Canon EOS 60D SLR is the very much anticipated next release of one of the world’s best selling professional digital cameras. Smaller than its predecessor, the 60D features a powerful 18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor. The ISO range is 100-6400 but is expandable to 12800. The screen is 1040k-dot 3.0″ LCD (just like in the EOS 550D and Rebel T2i). Fully compatible with all SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards, you can shoot hours of full HD quality video with full manual controls. With 5.3 frames-per-second (fps) of continuous RAW or JPEG shooting, an enhanced iFCL 63-zone, and dual-layer metering system, you can be confident that you won’t miss the perfect shot.
You can find deals on the Canon EOS 60D SLR at Amazon or when purchasing from Canon Direct (usually at least $100 off). Amazon does not yet offer any coupon codes or rebates, but the price is expected to drop as soon as they start shipping later this month. For all preorders, you can qualify for free super saver shipping and no sales tax (in most states). Amazon also has a large selection of Lithium-Ion battery packs available for the Canon 60D, and well as the older 50D digital camera.
So what’s typically included in the box?
- EOS 60D Body.

Some Canon 60D combo packages include lens as a greatly reduced price so be sure to look for the available packages on Amazon before making your purchase (some may include mail-in rebates).
On of the issues with owning the Canon 60D is its size. Once you add on a good lens, then you can forget about being discreet in your photo taking. This is especially problematic when visiting museums that do not allow these types of cameras or when going out on a long bike ride. In this case, you may want to consider Canon’s baby brother – The Canon G12. The G12 is known for having many of the qualities of a larger DSLR, but in a compact and convenient point-and-shot size.

You can also search their camera forum for the differences of the Canon 60D vs 50D.
