p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 20D vs D60 duel


Having both I often wonder which one to pull out and when... always having praised the D60 for it's nice colors right out of the camera but the 20D is so much better right? I took a few shots with both today...... Let's just call them camera X and Camera Y... See if you can tell me which is which?

well, with a bit of fiddling on the camera colour parameter settings, I can get either camera to produce either image...

X seems to have more saturation, too much in my opinion, but you said how you liked the D60's colors so im going to say X is the D60

Y's images are less saturated (which I like) and maybe more 'color-accurate' so im going to say its the 20D

I've used neither the 20D nor the D60 so this is coming from someone whos never touched let alone taken a shot with either cam

oh, Y has some dust spots on the sensor

X=D60, Y=20D
I compared the relative noise in the pictures, not the colors

hehe, exif data.
I like the colors in the D60, but the same image can be had from the 20D in a couple of seconds..

I reckon Y=20D

It looks as though dynamic range is slightly better in the Y shots, that's how I'm guessing.

I would say X=D60 and Y=20D. It's totally a subjective guess but I am looking forward to knowing because I own a D60 and lately I was wandering if the race to always get the latest model is really worth it, if you put aside functionalities and look at images only of course .

I have both the 20D and D60 and find myself using the D60 more than the 20D. I am going to say Cam X = D60 and Cam Y - 20D - except the last picture is a little more difficult to say.

Feel the pictures are too small to compare noise or other details. This is based on just looking at them for a second or so.

So which is it.

Hey I guessed it right for once
From pic 1 I couldn't really tell. On pic 2, the white balance from the 20D is better and in pic 3 the color of the D60 looks better.

I do find these quite close but as many of you correctly pointed out.

X=D60
Y=20D

Cam X is the D60, you can see in the 2nd pic that it lacks the fine output quality which the 20d has(8Mp), but in the 3rd pic you can clearly see the colour reproduction of the D60

Nice looking site and galleries Morten.

Would it make sense for you to use the D60 for your tripod shots and the 20D for handheld work?

Sorry bok13 but I don't really see any improvement in output quality from X to Y on the 2nd pic. I am sure they would be visible in the full size image but as these are resized.

Clean the sensors... Both cameras have a lot of spots on the landscape shot...

I don't see how one could see a difference in output quality between the 2 cameras on a picture sized for the web aside from color response. That would require printing at good sizes. I have on my desk a very colorful, 12x18 print from a D60 that looks great.

My own findings on 20D vs D60 (and that's my own view on it, which I'm sure some will disagree on) is that even though the 20D is much more modern, much faster to focus and operate than the D60 and more feature-rich, it also feels somewhat less reliable in its focusing ability. Also, I think the dynamic range is actually less, as I find it to have a ridiculous inability to recover any shadow detail without adding a lot of noise at low ISO, forcing me to constantly expose to the right and often blowing out the whites. I find the low ISO noise of the 20D more visible.

If I had to do it again today with hindsight, I'd hang on to the D60 and save my money for something more serious. Maybe I'll just get used to the different character but I haven't yet.

I don't know, but X cam has a dirty sensor.

Whoops - I stand corrected - they both do. I should read all the posts.

Nice pictures, you seem to have had a beautifull day (in BC?), but web sized pics are going to look good from my nieces 3mp kodak easyshare as long as they are in focus and correctly exposed, 100% would be more accurate, but still I'd lay odds that most looking at this thread are not using color corrected monitors (I have 2, but the computer I type this message on isn't my editing machine and thus is not color corrected)
