Canon EOS 60D / 18-55mm & 55-250mm kit Review
The Canon EOS 60D Twin Lens Kit includes 18-55mm 55-250mm lenses. It also includes a power cord, a video cable, an EOS digital solution disk, software manual, camera manual, pocket CD-ROM guide and a strap. This twin lens kit has included almost everything needed for an amateur to get into the field of professional photography. However, experts don’t see the accessories very important except for the camera body, the lenses and the rechargeable Lithium-ion replacement battery pack.
The extra batteries are a plus; on the other hand, these extra batteries have a life span that is only 50% of the life of the first batteries that come with the camera body. The 59 inches Tripod with a case looks cheap and fragile just like most free tripods are. True to its look, it is less durable. It is suggested that a monopod is bought instead of the tripod that is included in the kit, besides, the tripod gets broken down easily. The bag is not really impressive and durable. It doesn’t have any padding at all and doesn’t last long just like the tripod. The SD card reader is slow. Some professional photographers agree that it would be better to buy these things separately for more quality, usefulness and probably, savings. There are many available items that can be bought at a cheaper price but of better quality. These accessories that come with the camera body and lenses received a lot of complaints instead of compliments mainly about the durability.
The features of these lenses included in this Canon kit are some of the most coveted features of photo shooters. Some users even claimed that this kit is better than that of Nikon. Most of the photo shooters look for user-friendly cameras that will create drama on the photos and they find some of these easy-to-use features on Canon 60D twin lens kit. The 18-55mm lens is considered better for indoors or any unceremonious photo shooting. It is a good starter lens, although, some prefer the 18-135mm lens to be included in the kit instead of this one. The video mode might be a lot easier if the camera can do automatic focusing. Focusing takes time when recording a video. However, most lucky users find recording a delight with the use of this camera.
The Vary-angle 3.0-inch Clear View LCS monitor has a reflection reduction for a better viewing in cases of shooting at higher or lower angles. This also spares the users from moving here and there or up and down. Even those who aren’t tall and have to stretch their arms in order to take an over the head shot do find this LCD very handy. With this screen, the user can take a self-portrait even if with a crowd. Overall, this Canon EOS 60D with 18-55mm and 55-250mm lenses and some more accessories is less affordable but the image quality that the Canon produces is of a good caliber. These lenses are a steady step-up towards professional photography and serve as an effective learning tool to users. Except for some cheap and flimsy accessories included in the kit, this package is a great purchase.
