I'm going to be the first to put my hand up and apologise to Canon. :oops:

I was one of the many who were sceptical about the 60D. The fact is when I tested it out today at the Camera Expo at Photo Continental (Brisbane) I was very impressed. :D

SIZE - contrary to photo comparisons with the 50D it feels good in the hands - 8/10

LCD - crystal clear 1.04 million dots - 9/10

SWIVEL SCREEN - more solid than I first thought - 8/10

SPEED - 5.3 f.p.s is faster than you think - 8/10

MODE / DUAL BUTTONS - a little fiddly but I could easily get used to it - 7/10

OVERALL - 8/10

This camera fits in very well between the Rebel (550D) and 7D. Well done to the designers...it's a good camera.....:cool:

Same here! finally someone who has actually used the camera can give a realistic and honest report on it... pretty nice coming from someone with a 7D too :D


:cool: Canon 60D - Canon 24-105 L F/4 IS USM :cool:

I gave it the best appraisal I could as I had already owned the Rebel (550D) for a few months before upgrading to the 7D....

I didn't get very far with it as there were heaps of people wanting to get their mitts on it as well...! Focus was quick - very quick and the quality of pics from the LCD looked sharp.

That's easy isn't it? Just take a squiz at 550D and 7D samples. It'll be there or thereabouts. :)

Can't wait to get my hands on one. This is going to be a fantastic upgrade for the wife from her 350D. I'd considered a 40D or 50D but I think the size, weight and features will be perfect for her - she doesn't need a 7D.

Interesting but at that price it should have included MA.

I honestly cannot imagine the screen being that solidly build... I have to presume that's the weak point in the build.

I guess that's one of the joys of not actually having seen it, you can assign whatever characteristics to it that you want.

For what purpose?

It's either not needed, in which case you'll not miss it, or you do need it, in which case it will not do the job.

Equipment with problems typically require calibration at different focal lengths and/or focusing distances or the camera requires adjustments within the mechanics of the AF sensing. The micro adjustment can't do more than one thing, at one point.

The only thing micro adjustment will do is wasting your time before you give up and do what you should have done in the first place, have the equipment calibrated properly.

Thats what I thought but boy that hinge is secure. Perhaps it felt strong because its new and I am cognisant in time it may loosen up....time will tell I guess.....:confused:

I think the screen will be handy for some people,but I guess you dont need to use it, and as far as MA goes I wouldn't want it anyway, all 3 of my cams have it but I dont use it.

You can quit complaining about ma now, you do it in every damn thread. It's getting pathetic.
