With 6.3 effective megapixels, true photographic quality has finally been brought to the digital domain.  A huge 22.7 x 15.1mm imaging area is the first advantage you'll notice. Behind it, Canon's CMOS technology is providing high-level signal processing and an array of noise reduction improvements that rely on very small amounts of power.  So you can do more with less.  Plus, two filters -- a hybrid infrared filter and an RGB primary color filter -- put vivid, accurate color at your fingertips.
Sharper images. Wider tonal range. Virtually no color bleeding. Thanks to the D60 onboard Digital Signal Processing (DSP) chip, you're in control -- not the camera. And the best part is, it's fast. Image data flows from the CMOS sensor at blazing speed, unhindered by signal noise and other garbage. Which means you have more latitude to crop, enlarge, or retouch pictures with minimal deterioration and superior results.
Some of the best photographs in the world have been missed while the camera processes previous shots. Not with the EOS D60. We improved the memory buffer so that you can shoot 8-frame bursts at 3 frames-per-second and get the highest-quality JPEG and RAW images without waiting for images to load. The result: fast-moving action scenes as easy as a still life.
Sometimes you want the convenience of a JPEG image. Other times, you need the maximum image quality that only a RAW file can provide. With the EOS D60, you no longer have to decide in advance! Every D60 RAW file contains an embedded 2048 x 1360 JPEG file that can be extracted instantly with the supplied driver software. You can still set the camera to shoot JPEGs only with up to 6 variations in resolution and compression, but no matter what format you choose, the final picture will be clear, crisp, and accurate. And uniquely yours.
There are some things you don't mess with.  The way a camera feels in your hand is one of them.  With the D60, we added advancements inside, but outside you'll find every button and dial exactly where it should be.  Like the EOS D30, it's designed around a stainless steel alloy chassis, and is protected by specially treated interior and exterior surface coatings.  And the LCD monitor allows for wider peripheral angles, better visibility at low light levels, and more playback options. Smart and stylish, the D60 is definitely one to hold on to.
We're always improving the technology behind our AF systems, and with the D60, you get to enjoy the benefits. Exceptional low light performance, right down to EV0.5.  An improved laser matte screen for easier manual focusing. Superimposed, illuminated AF points for framing and focusing. And manual or automatic focusing point selection. Like most of our advancements, it's all based on the opinions of some very important photographers: our customers.
Get released from slow shutter release. With the D60 we not only significantly reduced lag time, we stabilized it as well.  So the shutter release is the last thing that will mess up a perfect photo.  Digital noise at slow shutter speeds up to 30 seconds, which can degrade image quality significantly with conventional digital cameras, no longer requires a custom function to be reduced with the D60.  And when digital noise is under control, you're in better control of what you want the camera to do.
You'll see it as soon as you bring the camera to your eye.  A much improved viewfinder -- not to mention every piece of information you'll ever need, from aperture to shutter speed to exposure level to flash ready status. And you'll be able to monitor the number of shots you have left at the maximum burst rate, see focusing points illuminated, and more.  It's all neatly organized and extremely intuitive, and right there in front of your eyes.
