Very fast; articulated display; excellent video quality and options.
Some annoying interface conventions.
The Canon EOS 60D is in many ways a great camera: fast, feature-packed, and with excellent photo and video quality. Some annoying aspects of its control layout dim its shine a little, however, so try before you buy.

My 1st (and current) DSLR. Wow... For what you get, the 60D is often priced at a very good value. Not a full-frame and not a FF lens but pretty rich detailed, clear pictures down to the pixel. Great options for color balance. Love the way you can dial it in to fill in shadows with detail. Lots of good professional level options. Fast enough to capture facial expressions, light sensitivity let's you get away with no flash indoors with moderate light. In outdoor lighting you can capture which tooth on the bride's face still has a little film at the gum line that was missed during brushing - from 30 feet away (if you drill down). At night during the reception in dim lighting for the dance you'll need a flash or have to accept grainy pics at ISO 6400. Still about 2 stops less light sensitive than a Mk 5dII or III. Because you can focus looking at the LCD or looking through the viewfinder some people find the two styles of focusng confusing. I'm happy with the focus options, but it took awhile to learn to take full advantage of the viewfinder method and the way you can drill down almost to pixel level to check the focus using the little swing out LCD screen (very handy for tripod night shots). Has the ever-so-slight bias toward redder skin tones that some people claim they can see in Canon. Software lets you adjust color and all kinds of other things. Can tune the camera to permanently interpret images from specific lenses. 18-135 is a great all around starter lens at an affordable price. Perfect zoom range with this sensor to capture people at the table while eating out, weddings, BBQs etc. For outdoor nature shots, when you tune your photos later with the software and drill down to pixel level, you will somesee a definite color separation halo on far away objects due to chromatic aberration, a lot of which you can eliminate with the software. (Love the software). You'll also be surprised sometimes at what you pick up in outdoor pictures when you drill down later with software and get beyond what you were able to see with the naked eye. Image stabilization is very effective (and a wonder to behold) Perfect lens for this camera, though it won't work if you upgrade to a FF camera. Software is phenomenal for a freebee, with nice easy interface. It's nice to be able to capture those human moments without a flash and now people always bug me for copies of my pictures or want to know what I was able to capture whenever the invite me to their gathering. It's nice to be able to give that. I've taken some phenomenal pictures of regular people with this just sitting around a table. I was surprised how much joy this brought into my life. I'm a visual person whose studied some art and design, so maybe that's it, but after holding off for so long, I found this to be a surprisingly good investment. Cameras do a lot more nowadays. With this camera, I don't miss puttering in the darkroom or working with a premium film camera. Good cameras cost a lot more than they used to as well. This is really the camera you can start at where you get those professional options that dial in the things you care about and give you lots of tools to fix your mistakes. And this is the cheapest you'll be able to do that.
This could be your last camera, or it could make you want more. (Now I'm saving for a 5d or 6d for even MORE light sensitivity).
I've been a canon camera buyer for over 45 years and none of my canon cameras from the film cameras (e.g., Ae-1, FTB, rebel, several point and shoot cameras, EOS etc., ) to my digital and video cameras have failed me. My 60D works very well in low light and shoots well with the built in flash. Shooting sports is fun again and candid shoots of my grandbaby without the flash is great. I now use my 40D as a backup. I've tried Nikon products but i always gravitate back to canon. My friend, a professional photographer swears by Nikon but admits my photos with the canons are excellent. My wife likes Sony....but you can't win over everyone..my photos are much better than her Sony shoots...smile..My lens from my EOS Elan film camera works well with the 60D so I didn't need to buy new lens. I know canon will come out with a new 70D but I'm happy with the 60D and it's going to be hard for canon to make me put the 60D in the backup position. I bought the 60D because of the HD video and the swivel viewfinder. Love it...I must admit I have to get use to the on-off switch on the photo selection dial. Battery life is great.
I had been shooting with a Rebel XT for a few years, which is a wonderful 8 MP camera. But, the small size, small LCD, restricted ISO, etc. imposed limitations on image capture possibilities.
Initially, I considered upgrading within the Rebel line to one of the models that had a 3-inch LCD. Around that time, the T1i and T2i were introduced. However, I was not impressed with the size and button layout. Yes, you get the resolution, video, etc., but if you're going to be shooting hundreds or thousands of photos in a single day, the body has to quite functional.
Finally, we have the 60D and 7D. I read the reviews and was torn between the T2i, 60D and 7D. Based on reviews alone, I was seriously looking at the 7D. But, after I had a chance to compare all three side by side, the 60D got my vote. Why? Here is my point of view:
* The 60D has the right size and weight to fit comfortably in my hand. I tend to hand hold a majority of my shots (particularly when traveling). So, size and weight are big factors. Let's face it: if you have medium+ hands, the Rebels are cramped. Yes, they work well, but they are geared to the entry-level photographer. The 7D is a beast - I was shocked at how heavy it is in the hand - and that was without a battery grip. If you use a tripod for a majority of your shooting, then the 7D weight won't be as much of a factor.
* The 60D hits the sweet spot for the Rebel upgrader. By this I mean that if you're looking to advance in photography, the 60D is a good choice. It's sandwiched between the T2i and 7D in the Canon lineup (and priced as such). You get a blend of features between lines. I got the bigger LCD, higher ISO, increased fps, video, etc. that were on my list.
* Wireless flash. If you have an off-camera flash, this is a fantastic feature the T2i does NOT have. The 60D lets you use your flash wirelessly without the need for a master. Again, for more advanced photography, this is excellent and extremely useful.
Let's talk about the LCD. The size and resolution are impressive. Do you need the tilt/swivel? If you plan to shoot video - absolutely. If you do stills - maybe not, although it can be handy for challenging angles (ground, overhead). The hinge is very sturdy and it's effortless to move around. My wife has a PowerShot with the same sort of LCD (albeit much smaller). It has remained sturdy and reliable. So, if you're concerned about durability, I say don't be. Plus, when not in use, the screen tucks away and is protected.
What about the buttons? You may have read comments and seen reviews where people knock the buttons. They don't click like on other Canon models. They are more of a "soft push" type. Why? Perhaps to reduce button noises during audio recordings. I was concerned about this after reading reviews, but it is a bit overblown in comments, I think.
Popular Photography has just come out with a review (Feb 2011 issue). Their bottom-line take is that the 60D is a "middleweight marvel" and a great upgrade choice. They say it surpasses the 50D in most areas and bests the Nikon D7000.
My final advice: Lay hands on the T2i, 60D and 7D. Don't simply go by reviews without touching the cameras. You may find the T2i hits your checklist just fine. Or, you may want the more pro features found in the 7D. You really can't go wrong with any of these models, but you could be disappointed by missing features, size, weight, layout, etc.
I have begun taking pictures of birds and wanted to try to achieve the reach and aperture of the Canon 400mm f2.8 lens without spending over $5,000. Initially I checked out the Canon EOS 7d and almost purchased it. I was not aware of the 60D, but when I learned of its existence I did a google search for a comparative review. The review said the two cameras were essentially equal. I bought the 60D and have really enjoyed it. It is light, fast and, with my experience with my EOS 5dMkII, I had a working familiarity with the controls and settings. I have taken this camera on a trip to Carmel and had excellent luck with landscapes, sea otters and a seagull. While the combination of this camera (with its less than full size sensor) with my Canon 70-200mm (extended to 360mm owing to the smaller sensor) f2.8 lens gives me close to 400mm reach and f2.8 aperature, the results are quite satisfactory and I can see no reason why I would ever lease or buy the big lens.
