Nice Design

One Canon EOS 60Da owner who purchased it concluded that it was neat. Andrew Johnson said two years ago “Liked the creative features of the EOS60D over the 650 or 700D, some of the neat features on my 350D only existed on the 60D” and gave it a rating of 5 stars.

3 Other reasons to consider the Canon EOS 60Da

Released Over Four Years Ago

This camera was released over four years ago.

Average Screen Size

At 3 inches, the EOS 60Da has a pretty average screen size compared to most of the other digital cameras of a comparable age and type to the EOS 60Da.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3" screen digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Sony SLT-A35, the Nikon Coolpix D7000, or the Canon EOS 500D - Rebel T1i.

If you want a camera with a larger screen size then you might want to look at the Df ($429.95) (3.2"), the D4 (3.2"), or the D600 ($39.99) (3.2") all from Nikon which also has a higher rating.

Average Megapixel Count

The EOS 60Da has a pretty average megapixel count (18 megapixels) compared to most of the other SLR cameras that were released around the same time as the EOS 60Da.

We compared this camera to all the other 18MP digital cameras and we think the Canon EOS 600D - Rebel T3i ($527.49) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this SLR camera megapixel count is not high enough for you then you might want to look at the EOS 550D (18.7MP), or the EOS 6D ($1,250.00) (20.2MP) both from Canon or the Sony Alpha A58 ($479.90) (20.1MP) which also has a higher rating.
