Would you call a 60D a super rebel?

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. :)

Yes it's just your opinion, But the old T1i rebel line camera is nothing like the 60D in feel, weight, and design as you put it. and when I last look at my camera I didn't see the 'Rebel' name on it?;)

And if Canon did put it at a Rebel line camera I would have never got one, I would have got the 5D

Chillax dude! No ones saying the 60D (Super Rebel) isn't a great camera, but so is the 600D (standard Rebel) in much the same way.

The XXD and Rebel line has been muddled together.

No they haven't. They have, however, been brought closer together. That's because the launch of the 7D, to fill the yawning chasm between the xxD and the 1D lines, caused a problem with the spacing below. There was too much of a gap between the xxxD and the 7D/5D. A 50D replacement that included all of the 50D's attributes, plus some new ones, would sit far too close to the 7D to be viable. What was needed was something to sit roughly halfway between the xxxD and 7D/5D - so they produced the 60D.

Their problem was that they didn't realise how many people only ever buy a camera because of it's name. If only they'd have called it the 48D - then everybody would be happy.

I'd personally be more apt to buy the 60D if it was called 36DD. We could lovingly refer to it as the "double d." :)

I always thought of the 5D as a "super 30D" so I'm fine with the 60D being a "super-rebel".

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 named it Super Rebel once it was released at this forum:)
It came to me once I read the specs of this camera.
Someone else call it the same as well.
I respect this camera a lot, but it is not upgraded 50D I was waiting for, but beefed up Rebel.

I don't care what you call it either. I just want one plus an L or two to go along with it. But, alas, with two teens and a tween, I don't see an upgrade in the immediate future. :(

BTW, the 300D Digital Rebel also uses CF.

Funny how all the detractors are non-60D owners. Meaning all their conclusions are based on internet research instead of actual camera use.

Personally, I don't own a 60D, but I think the negative press has more to do with assumptions than reality.

It makes sense, if you like it you will probably buy it, if you don't you probably wont. If someone asks me I would say its a good camera. Rebels, 50D, 60D, 7D, 5d2 etc are all good, its more about features and what suits you best and what you want in a camera. All can make great photos.

I wish I wouldn't have asked the question. I didn't read in the other 60d thread. I was a little offended by the dpreview comment (I don't own the 60d but have played with it), so I posted.
