Hello,\n\nI took your advice and went to a camera shop to look at and try a\nCanon EOS 600 but the salesman also showed me the 60D. I'm wondering\nif anyone has opinions on either of these?\n\nWhat are the differences between them? These are ones I can think of,\nperhaps you can tell me how important they are:\n\nI know from reading reviews that the 60d has cross point auto\nfocusing, whereas the 600d has only one cross point but being new to\nall this, I am not sure what the implications of that would be in the\nreal world?\n\nThe 60d has an lcd on the top. I'm not sure how useful this would be.\nWhen would you look at this? Surely you'll be looking through the\nviewfinder? If you need to look at a screen, what's wrong with the big\narticulated one on the back?\n\nWasn't there a problem with another Canon dSLR where light from the\nlcd was "leaking" into the camera?\n\nThe salesman told me that the 60d is more weatherproof and dust proof\nthan the 600d. I couldn't see any difference but I guess the magic is\non the inside.\n\nI think the 60d has a bulb setting on the dial, whereas the 600d has\nthe bulb setting hidden in a menu.\n\nIs it worth me paying £150 more for the 60, or should I use that money\non a lens?\n\nThanks,\nStephen.
