The EOS 60D marks a highpoint in convenience for the photographer by being able to shoot an image as a RAW file and then process it entirely in-camera to produce a separate JPEG file without the need of an outside computer. The EOS 60D gives you 10 process variables - brightness adjustment, white balance, Picture Style, Auto Lighting Optimizer, noise reduction, JPEG image-recording quality, color space, lens peripheral illumination correction, distortion correction and chromatic aberrations correction - to create the image you envision, set to the 3:2 aspect ratio used in 35mm film.
Additionally, once you capture an image with the EOS 60D, you can digitally manipulate it in-camera with a number of creative filters for artistic and dramatic effect. Options include Soft Focus Effect to convey dreamy tableaus; Grainy Black-and-White Effect for a gritty, hard-bitten look; Toy Camera Effect - the deliberate vignetting and color shift technique popular in art photography - and Miniature Effect, which blurs the top and bottom edges of the image to emphasize perspective and conveys a miniaturized look of the scene.
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
