Canon 60D review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Sunday 29th, August 2010

Photokina 2010 review - That a Canon EOS 60D was coming was no longer a surprise to the attentive reader. The many rumors, despite Canon Europe’s very strict embargo rules, are only increasing in size, and make the moment of introduction less and less attractive.
