Canon has enjoyed tons of accolades over the years for production of premium camera such as the Canon 60d. Canon is aimed at producing cameras for entry level and professional photography and videography.

The Canon 60d is one of the most sought-after cameras by Ghanaian photographers/videographers. In this article, I bring you the complete specification, key features and price of canon 60d in Ghana.

Whether you just want to take photography as a hobby or as a profession, the canon 60d would be a good fit for the job.

Key Features of the Canon 60d

  • 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor
  • ISO 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800)
  • 3 fps continuous shooting
  • 1080p HD video recording with manual controls
  • SD / SDHC / SDXC storage
  • In-camera raw development
  • Subject modes with ‘Ambience Selection’ (Standard, Vivid, Soft, Warm, Intense, Cool, Brighter, Darker and Monochrome)
  • In-camera Creative Filters (special effects)
  • Fully articulated 3.0″ screen (3:2)

An 18 megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor rests at the heart of the 60D. It is a good improvement over the older 50D sensor, with a size of 15.1 megapixels. It is identical to the sensor offered in the T2i and the 7D and offers maximum image dimensions of 5,184×3,456 pixels in both JPEG and RAW shooting modes. Note that APS-C sensors have a field of view crop factor of 1.6x lens focal length—this means that the focal length of every lens you use on the 60D will be multiplied by 1.6x. It is similar to using a lens magnifier or extender to increase the reach of a lens.

 

For processing power, Canon used the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. While it is the same processor as the 50D, but it does not provide the same performance. Because of increased sensor revolution and technology, the DIGIC 4 processor can only allow the 60D to shoot at 5.3 frames-per-second. To achieve faster fire rates, the EOS 7D uses dual DIGIC 4 processors.

Battery Life

Battery life is improved over the Rebel T2i, a LP-E6 Lithium-Ion Battery—the same battery found in the 5d Mark II and 7D allows photographers to get more exposures out of a single battery life than the Rebel series cameras. Canon 80D has got battery life much better than 60D.

Imaging & Performance

It is no surprise that the 60D offers excellent image quality—it shares a sensor that led the EOS 7D and T2i/550D to the top of their respective market segments in image quality. Images show good detail and color reproduction. Much of the story behind image quality is told through the lens you use to get light to the image sensor. The 60D really shines when coupled with some of Canon’s more expensive professional lenses, but it can also get good images with cheaper primes—like the 50mm f1.8.
