Fred Miranda takes on the difficult job of putting Canon's popular EOS digital SLRs head-to-head...
Fred Miranda, the professional photographer behind some excellent PhotoShop actions such as ISO-R (noise reduction), EdgeSharpen Pro (sharpening) and Highlight Recovery (exposure correction) has posted a detailed comparison of the Canon EOS D60 and EOS-1D digital cameras. Written from the perspective of a photographer looking at the advantages and disadvantages of each camera in certain situations, this is a great read for anybody who's considering purchasing one or both cameras and isn't sure which best fits their needs.
"Overall, it's clear that Canon released two different cameras for different photography needs. Photojournalists and sport shooters should embrace the 1D and now have the first viable alternative to film in their hands. With the introduction of the 6.3 MP D60, studio photographers now can print up to 11x17in without interpolating their files. Both cameras are great choices. The ultimate decision is yours and I recommend evaluating your anticipated needs carefully before choosing one over the other." Fred is in quite a good position to compare the cameras, owning both the Canon EOS-1D and EOS D30, and having had the EOS D60 in-hand for a couple of weeks to test.
