The EOS 60D features a sophisticated, 63-zone Dual-layer sensor designed to complement the 9-point AF system. By taking into account the color and luminosity surrounding chosen AF points, this system delivers an advanced level of accuracy for better results even in difficult lighting situations. Since the metering sensor has a color measurement function, exposure errors and focus errors caused by different light sources are minimized; the EOS 60D gives stable exposure from shot to shot in situations where light changes, such as in a theater or concert hall. This makes the EOS 60D ideal for scenes with extreme difference in brightness such as brightly lit scenes or backlit scenes; the camera balances exposure of the main subject at the background, and exposures are not overly influenced by bright areas in the shot. Since the EOS 60D provides high-speed X-sync ("X-sync" means the fastest shutter speed that can synchronize with a flash burst at the moment the shutter is fully released) up to 1/250 sec., the range of photographic expression is dramatically increased, allowing the EOS 60D to be used with confidence in bright scenes or dim.
Professional quality pictures
I wanted a professional level camera that I could use, even though my skill level was minimal. I'm NOT disappointed at all. I've had SO MANY compliments about the pictures I've taken of my grandkids' sports and school related activities that I "almost" feel like a professional. I've taken thousands of pictures over a couple of years and it's as solid today as it was when I first purchased it.

Very Satisfying Purchase
The Canon EOS 60D is a wonderful find on my part. Yes I
am a genius, in this purchase at least. This is the best EOS
ever to my thinking, because you get a camera that competes with the more expensive models in quality of
prints at a bargain price. Love It

Oldie but still performs quite well
choosing 60d over 650d/700d, i think this cam still a good choice even though its old, i like the photos coming out of the camera sharp and good colors, top lcd is very useful i hardly use the lcd screen for changing my settings, i also like its ergonomics; you just have to be familiar with it and you'll see, also viewfinder really bright compare to cameras with pentamirror vf, last the battery life "very solid" you'll never worry about it; and you can focus on taking photos
