Whilst speaking about DSLR Video at the International festival of Photojournalism in Perpignon France last week, I was able to 'borrow' a 60 d for 30 mins and shoot this hands on overview.

It's very robust and feels very much like the 7D in the hand. The articulated screen is the big improvement but it is also very solid and not at all flimsy.

Takes All SD card types SD, SDHC, SDXC.

Same batteries as 5D Mark II and 7D.

But for timelapse you need the mini jack plug on intervalometer.

My overall impressions were very high. Same LCD screen as 550D/Rebel T2i and I believe same sensor but improved processing.

While at the event I was invited to sit in on a round table discussion with Canon Inc designers and product developers and they are really listening to the needs of film makers. I made a suggestion to have geared lenses on the L series and also to add IS to more lenses.


I was honored to be invited to participate in this discussion alongside Canon Ambassadors


I'm grateful to The Ambassadors, Thorsten Milse, Gary Night, Frits van Eldik, Michael Nichols, Paolo Pellegrin and Ziv Zoren for allowing me to join them and bring the views of the DSLR Film maker to our hosts. I also would like to thank Canon Europe for inviting me to comment.

My thanks also top Brian Worley at Canon Europe and Dave Newton from eos-network.com for shooting the video for us.

Very much looking forward to getting one.
