Let’s start right off in stating that this is Canon’s newest entry into the Digital SLR market with a first ship date of August, 2010. It features an improved 18.0-megapixel CMOS sensor for tremendous images, a new DIGIC 4 Image Processor for finer detail and excellent color reproduction, and improved ISO capabilities from 100-6400 (expandable to 12800) for uncompromising shooting, even in the dimmest situations.
The EOS 60D also features an EOS first: A Vari-angle 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor for easy low or high-angle viewing.
An improved viewfinder, a number of new in-camera creative options and filters, plus HDMI output for viewing images on an HDTV all make the EOS 60D invaluable for the amateur and up-and-coming professional photographer.

The camera has a great feel to it, takes wonderful photos and the battery life is super. With the tilt and swivel LCD screen, itís super easy to take videos as well as those ìover the headî shots. The Canon 60D is very fun to shoot with and takes great shots in low light.
