πŸ’‘ Don’t miss our personalized Camera Recommender, an online tool that suggests a camera based on your use, your preferences and your particular needs.

If I like something canon brand is the wide range of its SLR cameras. There is where to choose. It has them very well structured through a very generous offer. This can be an inconvenience for many who, when it comes time to choose, can make a mess, you understand me, doubt and indecision sometimes turn a purchase decision into a real ordeal πŸ˜‰ However, I think it is a huge advantage to have all those options because that’s how we will find our camera, fixed. We just have to clarify β€œwhat do we want”, that is the question that is sometimes difficult to answer, right?

Inspired by the success of 2 of its most popular cameras, one day in 2010 Canon decided to create a model and named it the Canon EOS 60D. With this model, Canon tried to create a camera halfway between the 550D, very cheap in price, and the 7D, a professional camera with almost superhuman powers πŸ˜‰
The mix, as I said, comes to light under the name of Canon 60D and with it the brand stands up to the 2 competitors, the Nikon D7000 and the Pentax K-5.

Features of the Canon 60D, the highlights

You can easily find the technical characteristics on any page or blog on the Internet, so I’m not going to spend much time on that. Yes, to emphasize that in short, the Canon 60D has a powerful 18MP in an APS-C type sensor (Don’t you know what a sensor is? Nothing happens πŸ˜‰ Read this, run).
The camera is capable of capturing up to 5.3 photos per second in burst shooting mode, offers ISO values ​​(explanation of what ISO is here) of up to 3,200 expandable up to 12,800, records video in Full HD High Definition allowing manual controls , and stores photos and videos on SD, SDHC and SDXC cards (for me the best and cheapest cards).
It also has a 3-inch rotating screen that will make it easier for us to take self-portraits and videos.
On the other hand, the Canon 60D stands out for offering several scene modes and effects that can be previewed in LiveView mode before shooting the photo. (If you don’t know what LiveView is, I’ll explain it here).
Also with the Canon 60D we can convert RAW photos to JPG directly in the camera, including the option to correct optical aberrations such as distortions and chromatic aberrations.


Its price on Amazon with an 18-55mm lens and another 55-250mm is around 1,200 Euros. .

In short, a very correct camera that meets the expectations of users who, without going unprofessional, do make advanced use of the camera and pursue ambitious photographic projects in which high performance such as that of the Canon 60D is necessary. .
