In the Canon 7D vs 60D competition, neither camera loses. Both the Canon 60D camera and the Canon 7D camera offers an excellent DLSR experience for photographers, and photographers appreciate each camera for slightly different reasons. Here are some of the things you should consider about each DLSR before your make your next big camera purchase:

The Canon 60D has a flip-out LCD screen, which many users find useful for recording and playing back the HD videos you can create with the camera. The Canon 7D body does not come with a flip-out LCD screen. In terms of color depth, the Canon 60D is able to pick up 10% more color in each shot than the 7D is able to. Additionally, the Canon 60D battery is little bit more energy-efficient than the Canon 7D battery. Canon 60D users can take up to 1100 shots before the camera’s battery dies. 7D users, on the other hand, can only get around 800 shots.

As you can tell, the Canon 60D has a lot going for it. But so does the 7D. Unlike the 60D, the 7D is weather sealed, which means you can use it in practically any weather condition, even when it’s pouring outside. The 7D has 131 ms shutter lag, while the 60D has a somewhat disappointing 253 ms shutter lag. If you want a camera that shoots fast, the 7D is the way to go. It offers more than 50% faster shooting. It also offers a larger viewfinder and more focus points. Additionally, the 7D is a thinner, sleeker camera that many photographers prefer the feel of.

Most camera reviewers agree that the 7D and 60D are both great cameras. If want to spend a little less money and use your camera to shoot videos, the 60D is probably your best bet. And if you want a fast, thin camera that is highly efficient, the 7D may be just what you’re looking for.

I think the 60D is more than enough and I’d like to try out that swivel screen. It’s about time Canon put one of those on a camera.

I’d go with the Canon 60D – it has the flip-out LCD screen.

I would go for the 7D more feature a little more money but you’re getting more bang for your buck. And if are looking to go more professional and would like the more capabilities of the full frame, just upgrade to the 5D….it doesn’t have the same number of focus points on it but again the full frame might win out if you are going to upgrade!
