"Great mid-level DSLR"5.0 starson by milroypaul
Pros: Excellent photo quality, decent video, good performance overall, great lowlight response. Even if you are new to SLR cameras, you will find this quite easily manageable.
Cons: Live view focusing is slow, but you can set it to use one shot mode in live view, and that will improve the time it take to focus at the expense of momentarily blinking the screen. Weather sealing could be improved. get a good camera bag.
Summary: When my daughter broke my old faithful fujifilm E550, I bought the fujifilm SH10, and it sucked. Then I returned it and decided to go with DSLR camera and I bought this Canon 60D \w 18-135mm IS kit.
The EF-s 18-135mm IS kit lens is great. It has a 67mm thread, meaning that its front element is larger than other lenses with 58mm thread. The focal lens is very appropriate for everyday shooting, and you will very hardly switch to another lens.
Canon 60D pairs very well with the kit lens. When I shot pictures, the camera actually spoke to me with its little creaks, clicks & clacks. Auto focus was precise and fast (even though the kit lens is not a USM). Image stabilization worked great, and the flash had a good range. I did not find any noticeable noise even on ISO 1600 or 3200, unless you pixel peeping. The camera is fast. You can just keep clicking and you get full resolution pictures with out delay! The 5-6 burst rate is more than enough for most like me who run after the kids and wife, and perhaps someone on the street.
I am very pleased with this camera.
Thanks for your submission!
