A look back at the Canon D60 EOS
The Canon D60 EOS was one of the cameras that started it all.
Sure, cameras have been around for a long time, but the D60 was one of the first in the Canon EOS line that came out shortly after the start of the 21st century. Since then, digital SLRs have come a very long way and are now capable of taking HD video as well. More often referred to as the EOS D60, this camera really paved the way for the current SLRs on the market. Not to be confused with the Nikon D60 or the Canon 60D, the Canon D60 EOS was the leader during its time.
The Canon D60 EOS cameras are still widely used by photographers even to this day, despite all the newer Nikon and Canon cameras that have been released since 2002. At the time, the D60 boasted a 6.3 megapixel SLR body capable of taking amazing pictures at up to three frames per second. The D60 is in the prosumer category, which basically means that it is a combination of both a professional and consumer camera. They are the cameras for the very serious photographers. The wave of digital SLRs gave any amateur photographer the tools necessary to take professional grade quality photos. These cameras were in a whole different ball league than the Canon Powershots were, the point and shoots at the time.
DSLRs have come a long way since the Canon D60 was released, and there is still plenty of time for bigger and better things. Considering how far cameras have come in the last 10 years, much less 20, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the future.
