Would you call a 60D a super rebel?

Yes, I'd call it a Super Rebel. And I'd call the 7D a Super Duper Rebel, and the 1D MkIV a Super-Duper Mega-Scooper Rebel. Well, I would if I were a total and utter moron who thought what one calls a camera was in any way important.

You all can call the 60D whatever you like. I have owned mine since they came out, and I have had nothing but sucsess with it. It fits my hands and does what I need it to do. I have seen this subject beat to death from the begining, and I could care less what you camera wizards want to call the 60D. I bought it. I like it. , And it does what I need it to do. Maybe all you camera wizards should go find another model to pick on. This ones been done to death.;):D

You can call it whatever you want. Bottom line is, it is one tool in a photographer's tool kit (for lack of a better word). Camera body, lens, flash, tripod, etc. make up the kit. It is what the person using the kit produces that matters, not what is in the kit. I have friends that use Rebels and produce photos that blow me away. On the other hand I have friends with XD series, and I don't look twice at their photos. The point is, use the tools that work best for you and don't worry about what gear heads call your camera.

I was looking at the dpreview and they said:

The 60D is probably best understood as a 'super Rebel' - it's a more comfortable, more flexible and faster-to-use version of Canon's justly popular entry-level DSLRs. The twin dial controls, better grip and bigger viewfinder will delight stills shooters while the articulated screen and movie control will please would-be videographers.

I never felt that way about the 50D and though they feel different I thought they were in another class than the rebels.

edit: I also remember them not liking the 50D. Are they biased against Canon?


I agree,IMO the 60D is just a rebel on steroids.

The 60D a Super Rebel don't make me Laugh, it's not in the Rebel line. Was the 50D ever a Rebel? So why do you think the 60D is!!!.

When the 60D first came out it was only to replace the 50D. Not a Rebel line do any of you bashers Read what Canon said?

I think that you will see that the 60D camera bashers, are pretty much the same ones who bash it evertime a thread like this comes out. They seem to live to bash. Maybe some of the 60D camera wizards, bashers, and overall Nasa trained photography scientists should just go and take some photos.;):D

LOL relax, I'm not a "60D" basher",it was just my opinion,I think much of that opinion is based on the smaller body on the 60D.it feels more like my old t1i when I hold one. :)

IMO it feels nothing like a rebel but rebels are nice cameras too. I just like that it has 2 control wheels.

It's not really fair to compare the 60D to all Rebels. The T1i, XSi, T3 and XS shouldn't even be considered. Now compared to the T2i and T3i, the 60D may seem like an overpriced Rebel. I think Canon has done a disservice to their line by making the higher end Rebels so feature rich and taking some of the features away from the 60D. The XXD and Rebel line has been muddled together. Whether or not this was done to sell more 7D's is anyone's guess.
