Today let’s make a review of Canon 60D, one of the most used cameras by professional photographers and videographers. Did I say videographers too? Well that’s right because the features of this camera is not just good those who are doing photography works but also in video shooting world.
To learn what this prosumer camera then can offer, let’s see the Canon 60D features and make a review if how can those features make our photo and video works more wonderful:
Wow! for me 18 megapixel is big! With this amount, you capture photos into a very high resolution. So in case you wanted to crop that photo or enlarge a certain subject in the post processing, you can do so without losing so details. The CMOS sensor also captures photos at a higher sensitivity reducing digital noise leaving your photo really smooth.
So what’s DIGIC 4 image sensor all about? Well it makes the capturing, saving, and processing of the photo within the camera really fast. It processes photo data shot at 18 megapixels at 5 frames per second. It also has 14-bit processing signal that makes the images’ color more excellent.
Review of Canon 60D #2 – 1920 x 1080 Full HD video Recording with Manual Controls
So if I said that Canon 60D can produce really large photos, men, it can also capture 1920 x 1080 full high definition videos. With this DSLR, you can use those manual controls in your video recording too. This allows you to create shallower depth of fields compared to using a professional video camera.
You have also the option to choose from many video resolutions and frame rates which are as follows:
1. 1920 x 1080 Full HD video at 30 (29.97 fps), 24 (23.976 fps) and 25.0 frames per second, for up to 4GB per clip
2. HD at 1280 x 720 (50/60 fps)
3. SD/VGA at 640 x 480 (50/60 fps)–24/30 fps
For the audio recording however, it is still suggested to bring with you an external microphone for separate sound recording. Canon 60D’s audio capture is still not reliable in terms of having professional audio output.
Review of Canon 60D #3 – Canon Lens Compatibility
All of the Canon lens are compatible with 60D so you can use many lens in your shooting interchangeably. This gives you more flexibility in capturing artistic shots in different situations.
This is really cool since you can flip the LCD screen to shoot from many angles. There are times that we want to shoot from the floor using a slider and we can still view from the LCD by flipping it upwards.
