The EOS D60 maintains the same basic design principles of the EOS system with an optimized layout for digital functionality. The EOS D60 incorporates the same mode settings and dial operation utilized in the EOS series and offers compatibility with Canon's extensive line-up of over 60 EF lenses, ensuring ease of use for anyone familiar with the EOS system. Furthermore, an external cover molded from lightweight and exceptionally strong engineering plastics combined with a stainless steel chassis makes that the EOS D60 both lightweight and durable.
The EOS D30 was celebrated for its smooth low-noise images. The EOS D60 also produces smooth low-noise images at the lower ISO settings but has the advantage of offering a higher resolution than the D30. This higher resolution will allow you to print at larger sizes with an improvement in image quality and also will be provide more forgiving cropping options. For many D30 users, the impetus of image quality improvement may not as big a factor in upgrading to the D60 as it could have been.
