If you are a serious nature shooter, this is not the camera for you. The Depth of Field Preview button has been positioned awkwardly. This digital camera can be difficult to use with complicated controls. Not so user friendly, I would say. And I have read bad reviews about 60Ds’s little switch on the hot shoe. It appeared to be faulty as it sends wrong signal to the camera. It is supposed to tell the camera when a flash is installed or not. But because of the metal spring tab that doesn’t spring back far enough, the switch fails to reset which would disable the pop up flash as the camera thought there’s a flash installed. Ooops! I don’t want to be in that position. (There’s a work around though, which you’ll find on the Internet).
But, looking at the pro side of it, Canon EOS 60D has good basic features such as quick start-up time, excellent image quality, superior build quality, bright LCD, and it feels very solid and would fit an average adult hand size. Canon EOS 60D has a sturdy build to it which is great for outdoor activities such as mountain hiking and camping as it allows you to be a little rough. This digital camera is dust and water resistant. And like most of Canon’s Digital SLR Camera, this one delivers great image and I would say for a price like that, I would give this a four star.

Features of Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera
Canon EOS 60D features 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor that captures high level of resolution, which makes cropping of images easier for enlargement without losing detail.
Excellent pictures, anytime, from dawn to dusk
With enhanced high-sensitivity optimization, subjects can be captured clearly and easily at high shutter speeds without flash, with minimized blur and noise. In bright scenes, especially long exposures in daylight, optimal exposure can be achieved with a fully open wide-diameter lens that you won’t need a dark filter. And that’s because of a broad range of ISO settings which is expandable up to 12800 with Custom functions.
High Definition Video
This digital camera features HD Video capture technologies - manual exposure control for more creative control, for example - borrowed directly from professional Canon DSLRs to capture stellar video with all the benefits of shooting with a DSLR. By shooting video with the EOS 60D, photographers as well as filmmakers can take advantage of the creative features native to Digital SLR cameras.
Low Angles or High, a Big Vari-angle LCD Captures the Details
EOS 60D features a bright, high resolution, flip-out Vari-angle 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor for shooting at a variety of angles.
Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera is made to capture even rapidly-occurring scenes with stunning precision. Able to shoot up to 5.3 frames per second (fps), capturing a maximum burst of approximately 58 Large/JPEGs and 16 RAW, the EOS 60D DSLR lets you catch even the briefest of moments.
Flexible Storage with Memory Cards.
EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera uses popular SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. Compact, inexpensive and available in increasingly large capacities, SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards are a perfect complement to the EOS 60D DSLR's compact and lightweight body design.
