Only some of the camera setting are in the viewfinder but not all, and they are in green colour only in my viewfinder but on the LCD they are white and easy to see, maybe thats why canon made the 600D and 60D to view everything in one live view mode like a P&S camera easy to use but bigger to see than a P&S. love it.:D

If you and others want to push your face up to your camera just to take a picture that up to you but not me, we are all different in life we all have our own opinions, we are all learners of the DSLR world....just stay happy.

I love my 60D better. Yes I didn't buy it for Boke - Boken I got it because it can take better pictures than a P&S can also you can change the lens, Sony,Nikon don't make me laugh with toy cameras.

live view can be handy but i just cant imagine anybody serious about photography not liking the viewfinder. the ONLY time i use live view is when i dont want to lay on the floor to get a shot from a different angle. like you said, to each his own though.

now your last statement, sony and nikon = toy cameras? gtfo of here with that. if you're loyal to one brand then fine, so be it. but if you seriously think the brand of camera you use has a significant affect on your final image you have no clue what you're talking about. you're better off giving the 60d to someone who can use it and buy a lumix gf2 instead. not to sound harsh but you really rub people the wrong way with your half thought through comments.

Because it's like a Rebel+ rather than a true D-series

The Rebels have D behind them in Europe, so I don't know what this D series is that you speak of.

When I reply to any thread I am busy with my work I sometime don't read what I have said don't have time, if I have rub up people the wrong way I am sorry, but infact it's just my opinion at the end, I got my 60D because I like it end of story. infact wasn't we talking about the viewfinder.

Everyone buy their own cameras for their own purpose in life, if you like boke-bokeh or the viewfinder or white lenses that's fine.

My first Canon DSLR was the 20D, bought it the week it came out. Since then I bought a second 20D, a 40D, a 50D and a 5DMk2. I typically carry the 5Dmk2 with the 24-70mm lens and the 70-200mm on the 50D. I was looking to replace the 50D with the 60D, but it wasnt an upgrade for me so I bought another 5DMk2. In my opinion the 60D seemed to be a step backwards from the 50D. The 60D is a great camera, a friend bought one as his first DSLR and he loves it.

I am curious as to what the percentage of users that have the articulating screen are actually using it or how much they do use it. I have maybe used it twice and I found it struggled to grab focus vs. using the view finder.

I didn't buy the 60D for the articulating screen. It was an upgrade from my Rebel XT to a semi-pro camera that will suit my needs at the price I could afford. I debated with the T2i but the extra features made it worth it for me. I guess I can see the complaint for those already in that lineup, but it does make a nice upgrade, which is where I'm coming from. I absolutely love the camera.

I use the articulating screen more now then I did, I like it better than the viewfinder if you don't like the articulating screen ask Canon_lover to break for you he have been trying to damage his 60D camera for the few days now.

That's right a good mid-range camera better then a entry-level camera 550D/T2i

One of Canon best design was the articulated screen on a DSLR I never understood why we have viewfinders, because all the camera settings are in the LCD or top LCD on some cameras, a P&S camera most people still buy

Bye

try holding an slr at arms length with some like a sigma 150-500 and focus using the lcd on the back of the camera. but i can see where a pivoting display would be handy

If I had a lens at 150-500mm I just use a strong ballhead tripod. and then flip out my articulated screen on my 60D and take the picture but I wouldn't buy the SIGMA APO 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM, I would buy Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens I know it's white/gray but many people will come up to me thinking I am professional, hehehe :lol::lol: just joking

I am not really into big lens at this time. but maybe in the future I will change my mind

You guys are going way too deep into the thought here. The title is why do some people think the 60D is not worth getting? Pretty easy really:

1) The Nikon D7000. It came out around the same time as the 60D and is a huge upgrade from the D90, which is what it was replacing. At least on paper, it had everything and the kitchen sink and had microadjustment.

2) Canon, meanwhile, removed MA from the 60D, "downgraded" the body to plastic, lowered the fps slightly and gave it a swivel screen. A lot of people see swivel screens as "dumbing down" of the camera (personally I love them), so that now the 60D is a glorified Rebel instead of a semi-pro model like the XXD line used to be. They refuse to accept the fact Canon is clearly distinguishing the XXD line from their baby 7D line.


Those reasons, folks, are why the 60D is seen by some as a disappointment. In and of itself, it's surely not a bad camera. But, look at the situations under which it was released (same time as D7000) and look at the things Canon did compared to the 50D line, and people see it as a camera that Canon dropped the ball on.
