    Hi everyone,

    I am just about to acquire a digital SLR after having worked with kind of an
    old fashioned non-autofocus film camera for quite a while. I have a decision
    to make here. Currently, there is a Kodak DCS 560 (also known as Canon
    D6000) as well as a Canon EOS D60 on offer. The idea is to get an affordable
    body and buy very good lenses for it. In a few years time, I plan to
    exchange the body for something more fancy (the Canon EOS-1Ds is just not
    affordable for me at the moment but it may be in a few years time).

    Both -- the Kodak DCS 560 and the Canon EOS D60-- are Canon bodies, which is
    important for lens compatibility with a future model. They are also both 6
    megapixel cameras. The main difference is that the Kodak used to be a really
    professional camera, which is 6 years old now, whereas the Canon EOS D60 is
    a consumer market camera, which is only two years old.

    Can anyone give me a fair indication as to which of the two is likely to
    make the better pictures, i.e. have the better chip, less noise, more
    sharpness? I already worked out from a few reviews on the web that the
    autofocus of the D60 is much slower than the one on the Kodak (which is
    based on the Canon EOS 1n body, which was THE Canon body in 1994).

    Which one to buy?

    If anyone has some further suggestions, that would be highly appreciated as

    Thanks a lot,

    As far as I know, the latest Kodak DSLR takes Nikon lenses...

  3. Hi Malte

    They are both good cameras (I have the DCS-520, the DCS little brother).

    You have to think about what you are going to use the camera for, is it only
    studio work I would go for the DCS-560, but it only has ISO 80 and 200, if
    you wan´t a more allround camera go for the D60.

    I would also suggest looking at the DCS-520m I love mine, its FAST, ISO is
    200-1600, I can use my old 540 EZ flash. It is only 2 Mpixel, but I rarely
    make print larger then 14x21 cm, and then you can´t see it. I have just
    ordered a 20x30 cm print, but there I have used PhotoShop bicubic
    interpolation. If you wan´t I will let you know how it goes.

    Venlig hilsen/best regards
