Would you call a 60D a super rebel?

Who said the 60D was a bad camera? I certainly didn't. I believe its a great camera, but that doesn't change the fact that it is like a super rebel.

So why not call it a 7D-lite then?

It would need to have a magnesium body, micro-adjust, faster burst, and quite possibly still use CF cards...then I think people would call it that.

The Rebel line (why don't you just use the numeric nomenclature and get rid of that frickin' Reble/Kiss label Canon??!) has gotten so advanced since the 550D that it would take some extras to the 60D to give it a big enough separation to avoid the "super rebel" name. The differences between the 600D and the 60D are less substantial than the differences with the 7D on paper.
Too bad Canon didn't keep the micro-adjust feature. That should be standard on any xxD/xD line! But the 60D has proven to be a great camera!
Threads like this are good for witty banter and harmless debate. ;)

Then it would be a 7D, not a 7D lite.

Well actually it would be a 7D Pro.

If you compare the 20D and 350D, 30D and 400D, 40D and 450D, 50D and 500D and 60D and 600D/550D, you will find that the gap has not narrowed. IN fact, in previous generations, the Rebel usually had some newer features. The T1i had the same sensor as the 50D, but the 50D didn't have video. The 450D had a 12MP 14bit sensor and better liveview than the 40D. The 400D was 10MP and 3.5fps while the 30D had 8MP, 5fps and the same AF system. That was a pretty narrow gap for while. And the 300D could be firmware hacked to actually be a 10D.

I think people have the idea of a giant gap between the bodies based on a little more metal and a MA feature that was only included for one body release.

IMO as long as you like the camera and its for you then it doesn't matter what it is.

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?

you say "you bashers",well I think you're a rebel basher !

why are you so defensive when the 60D is spoken of in a rebel comparison ?

there is nothing wrong with the rebel line,they are great cameras too !


but you 60D owners sure do get upset when anybody compares it the way it has been discussed in this thread ! LOL

I just love when the 60D is brought down since it doesn't have Micro Adjust... Like many users only use prime lenses... (for those who want MA but have not used it, you can only calibrate for ONE focal length on a lens!)

I have a 60D/Super Rebel/7D Lite whatever and am quite happy with it. Sure it will probably break if I throw it out the window while driving down the highway, but I am OK with that :)

And, as I've said before, if MA is such an all-important feature - why were there no complaints about its non-inclusion in the 40D? When the 40D was launched MA was already present in the 1D, yet I don't recall a single complaint about the lack of MA in the 40D. Indeed, I don't recall there being songs of jubilation about its inclusion in the 50D, more of a 'ooh, that's nice' reception.

But the bleaters needed something to bleat about when they realised that the 60D wasn't 7D specs at a 50D price. And the only things they could find to bleat about were the lack of the, previously 'meh', MA and the fact that it didn't feel 'magnesiumy'.

I would't call any camera a Rebel. As far as I can see from here, no cameras are called Rebel. They are for example called EOS 1100D or EOS 600D or something along that line.

Never Rebel.

Weren't all the xxD bodies more or less super Rebels? I mean they almost always matched up feature to feature except for ergonomics, size/weight, and a few extra features. The 7D was the first body to offer significant improvement to something other than the firmware.

Get hold of a 10D and an original Digital Rebel - released around the same time the two were worlds, make that universes apart.

At least that was my opinion.

I was shooting an EOS-3 when I bought my first DSLR from Canon.

I bought the Digital Rebel ( $995 package with kit lens.)

Took it home, unboxed it, reboxed it and returned it in exchange for the 10D.

The 10D was $1499 if I am not mistaken and a much much different and better camera.

600D 550D 500D 450D etc etc. are known as 'Rebel' in the US.

It was a Pro feature at that point, that changed when the mid-range inherited it, but then it was taken away in the 60D.
