A really good overall camera.

Comments about Canon DSLR EOS 60D EF-S 18-200mm IS Camera Lens Kit - Black:
I bought this camera new May 2012 and it has performed flawlessly since. The flip out screen is very nice for awkward angle shots, the shutter is quiet (quieter than my 70D) and the 9 point autofocus is fast very accurate. Autofocus via live view uses contrast detect and is quite a bit slower but accurate. Exposure metering is very accurate and plays well with my Canon flashes. (580 EX II, 420 EX and 270 EX II) The IR wireless slave flash control is very useful. Does not focus like a camcorder when shooting video. Need a 70D, 7D MkII or Rebel T4i or later for that. (See my 70D review). Ergonomics and menus are very good. You can repurpose most of the buttons on the back too. Uses "multi controller" as opposed to a joystick on previous xxD models. Nice fit for my hands and my wife's who inherited this camera when I got a 70D.

Great all around camera
I bought My 60D 3 months ago.Brand new to me and I have not regretted the money well spent, The egonomics for one are good for someone with large hands, the grippy texture helps to hold the solid heft of the camera with a 70 to 300 EF lens at work..this is no studio queen..this is out of doors, on the field and in the weather. Never fails. Ive two lenses..the mentioned 70 to 300 and an 18 ro 135 EF-S. Beautiful captures in extremely low light conditions, If you work your craft, get to know the Camera,you will not be disappointed with the excellent results. Lightning shots, stars, eclipses..all are in your grasp. Sunsets are an extreme joy to capture in full manual mode. Colors are rendered faithfully as you desire. In full auto mode, it is easy to get the wow factor shots as well. Video is a wonder as well. Need a Black and White movie? Why yes, again, in full manual mode, you can. There is only one drawback.. A monaural mic. That is easily rendered moot by adding any stereo mic available to be kitted to the 60D. Shoot both Jpeg and RAW, single and both at same time. This Camera will go where ever you are ready to go..when you are ready to go. The Battery life of the OEM battery is amazing! As for bumps,and bruises..sadly i dropped it last week. The material is physically discolored..that is it. The Camera works perfectly, the fall was onto the floor from the center console of a 11 F 250 onto the rubber floormat..a distance of around a foot. It may not sound like much...but it did impact, and still works. I would recommend this Camera to everyone.

Won't work with Yosemite 10.10!
from Boone, NC
I love this camera except for one thing. We now run an all-MAC household - all the computers are MAC, as are all devices. They are all up to date re OS, which means that there is no way to get photos from the EOS into any of the MAC devices. Canon should warn people before they buy the camera that they cannot use it with Macs, as this failure to keep the utility updated means the camera is useless. I've downloaded the supposed "fix" - the Utility2 - and it doesn't work. I'm not sure if this is a firmware or a software issue, but it is unacceptable. If there is a genuine solution to this issue, then your failure to post it prominently on the EOS60D page is an information-delivery issue. either way, again, this is unacceptable.

My favorite camera so far
This is my 4th Canon SLR and I love it! I got the 60D when it launched and I have not been disappointed yet. It's a little heavy, but I expect that in a good product. I use it for weddings, portraits, landscapes, macro, travel, sports, everything. It goes with me everywhere I go. It's easy to use, there is a ton of different functionality so you can personalize it to your needs. Paired with the right lens you can capture absolutely amazing photos. I am more than pleased with this camera. I am sure there are bigger and better out there, but for the price and options it's a great investment!

Best camera purchased
Best camera I purchased. Easy to use features. Manual feature is like the old canon cameras.
from Albany NY
I was forced to purchase this after my 50D broke and by that time, that model was discontinued. My biggest gripe witht he 60D is the mirror shake. I do a lot of macro where the detail and sharpness really count and more often than not, the image is not crisp from the mirror vibration. It's on a tripod and I use a remote shutter release. There should be no blur. It's terrible in low light situations, producing very noisy images. I also don't really know why Canon is such a big fan of the HD video. Unless you're doing interviews where the subject is stationary, it's pretty impossible to take usable video on this because while there is autofocus, it is not constant and is very slow. Canon, you should just stick to pictures. If someone wants video, they'll buy a camera specifically made for it. Despite the gripes, I have been able to get some pretty decent pictures. The movable screen has helped in a few situations where I needed to put the camera over my head and needed to compose my shot or if I was on the ground taking a picture of a flower at an upward angle and couldn't look through the viewfinder. Overall, I'm disappointed with the performance of it. This camera definitely wasn't worth what I paid for it. I can't wait until I can afford the 5D Mark III.
from Boston, MA
I personally enjoy the physical body of this Canon camera over the other cameras I own. And the adjustable display screen is also an extremely useful tool to have while filming or using a a tripod. Overall, I am quite satisfied with this Canon product so far!
from Owego, NY
Even though I just got this camera I love it. There are so many features that it is not an easy camera to learn but my experiences with using the XT, XTi and Xsi have smoothed over the edges. I wouldn't have wanted to come into this camera cold. Before I actually got the camera I downloaded a pdf of the users guide. This is one of those rare times when I would advise anyone interested in this camera, or any of the advanced Canon EOS cameras, to READ THE MANUAL.
