The EOS 60Da features a bright, high resolution, flip-out Vari-angle 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor for shooting at a variety of angles. Convenient in all situations, the monitor's flexibility lends itself to tripod-mounted shooting towards the sky, offering a comfortable alternative to through-the-lens composition.
With 1,040,000 dots for spectacular detail, the advanced, smudge-resistant monitor includes high transparency materials plus anti-reflective and water-repellant coatings to provide clear and bright viewing. Superb for reviewing, editing and deleting photos or composing new images in Live View function, the Vari-angle Clear View LCD monitor is also the perfect means for accessing camera settings like ISO, metering modes, AF Point selection, and the horizontal Electronic Level.
A Nebula Star
I have now been using the Canon 60Da for about six months for astrophotography. I, frankly, was amazed at the quality of the photos this thing creates. Using Adobe Lightroom 4 to process, I have captured far better quality singly shot photos with the 60Da than I was able to do with my similarly priced electro-cooled CCD with filter wheel. Better, the noise level is low enough that Lightroom 4 can completely remove any noise without darks! It gets better... An image capture that would take me an hour or longer using the CCD and filter wheel is done in about 10 minutes using the 60Da. Because of the large CMOS chip, the 60Da has enabled me to get images in one exposure that would have required extensive stitching using the CCD.
My end results are generally comparable with very high end one-shot SBIG and other astrophotographic instruments. I cannot say enough positive about this camera.

Canon 60 D
I have had my new Canon 60 D since June of 2012. Have shot close to 600 pictures with a couple of lenses that I own. One of them is a EFS 18-200 mm. I am really enjoying this new camera of mine, makes my pictures look great. I consider myself an intermediate photographer. This camera allows a great deal of flexability in my shooting style. It has alot of great settings to chose from as well. I love the 5.3 fps for quick rapid shots. Great feel to the camera feels solid in my hands. The menus are very fluid and easy to understand. I picked up a nice field guide from better understanding and to maximize the full benefits of my 60D. You can not go wrong with this camera.

I have been using this camera for about 5 months now, I like to shoot portraits, but I use it for events and street photography, its really easy to use and I can hardly think of a con to this camera, I once used it for a wedding and the video was amazing.
It's worth the investment.
