Canon EOS D60

D60
Review Date: Apr 6, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,515.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Good easy to use rotary wheel controls. Combined with 550Ex Speedlight outstanding
Cons:
polarity of PC socket not compatible with some studio flash As mentioned in another review on here, Autofocus can hunt in lower lighting conditions. Don't always assume if the image on the LCD is crystal clear that the end result will be the same.

I currently use a combination of Mamiya RB67 and Nikon D1H at work for Crime Scene recording. I find the D60 more versatile and easier to use than the D1 and the quality far surpassing the Nikon. Given the choice I would use my own camera for scene recording but the conditions we work under allows for blown over tripods, excessive wind and rain and I value it too much for accidental damage.

I made the choice to purchase the battery grip and have the addional functionality in portrait mode and extra battery life. I am also using the IBM 1Gb microdrive without problem.

Auto white balance for the main provides good balanced averages for point and shoot photography but I particularly like having the control to easily select manual white balance as required and encourage people to use this as often as they can.

I mentioned briefly in the Negative points ( and this is not a slight on Canon) what you see is not always what you get on the LCD. Use the histogram as Digital photography often attracts noise and lost pixels.
