Canon EOS D60


Canon announced the EOS-D60 two days before PMA 2002. That's exactly two years since the EOS-D30 was first announced, although that seems like a long time ago the D30 didn't hit the streets until the end of 2000 (early 2001 in some countries) and so...

Excellent resolution, lives up to the six megapixel label ; Improved colour, reds are stronger other colours toned down a little ; Noise free 'silky smooth' images (still has the "D30 look") ; Noise very low all the way up to ISO 400, manageable noise...

Strange dots ('drop out' pixels) which can appear between high frequency lines ; Opening the CF compartment door shuts camera down, loses any buffered images ; Overall auto focus performance virtually identical to D30 ; Viewfinder view is smaller than...

When Canon came along at the end of 2000 with the EOS-D30 it took the market by storm, superb image quality in a digital SLR built as such from the ground up and all for $3,000. But let us not forget Nikon's contribution, before the D1 it wasn't...

The EOS D60 is the much anticipated upgrade of Canon's popular EOS D30 SLR that was first introduced in 2000. The D30 set new standards for price and performance and as the old saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," so Canon didn't, they just imp

Canon EOS D60 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights


Ask a photographer, be they professional or amateur, to name the first couple of camera manufacturers they can think of, and chances are that one of those would be Canon. Ask the same photographer what the Canon name means to them, and many would...

Canon EOS D60 Review Round-Up


For me the D60 outperformed many of my expectations, I didn't expect resolution to be as good as it is and I didn't expect Canon to be able to keep noise levels down in the way they have. In almost every respect the D60 has performed flawlessly. There...

Canon EOS D60: More Pixels, Less Bucks, Great Camera


Two years after the introduction of the Canon EOS D30, Canon has upgraded the D30 with a 6-megapixel image sensor, added a few features, and made a number of tweaks. Most importantly, though, the price has dropped to about $2,000, making the Canon EOS...

While the D30 featured ISOs of 100, 200, 400, 800, and 1600, Canon has reduced the 1600 speed to 1000 on the D60, limiting its low-light shooting capabilities. As with the D30, there is practically no increase in noise even at ISO 400, and only minimal...

Canon EOS D60 digital camera


For more than two years, my digital camera of choice was an Olympus C-2500L, as reviewed here. The 2500L's still a good piece of gear, and it's more than adequate for most of the photography I have to do for this site. But the need for more features,...

Canon EOS D60


We highly recommend the EOS D60 if you want the look-and-feel of a 35mm camera, or if most digital cameras are not advanced enough for your needs. Canon has preserved the strengths of film cameras while adding the best attributes of digital imaging....

6.3-Megapixel Digital SLR Camera Boasts Film-Camera Quality and Design

Expert review by:

Canon EOS D60 Digital Camera


Canon continues its drive to produce high-resolution digital cameras for the professional market, at ever-lower prices. It was only six or seven years ago that any news photographer who wanted to buy a digital camera that would meet his or her needs...

Although it looks almost identical to the D30, its guts have been revamped. At $2199 for the complete kit (you can also buy the camera body alone for $1999), it boasts the highest resolution in their line, coming in at an awesome 6.3 megapixels
