Canon 60D gets its butt kicked by the Sony Alpha 55 & Nikon D90

DxOMark consists of a comprehensive RAW-based image quality Measurement Database and a set of Scores to evaluate and compare digital cameras and lenses

As a Nikon D90owner it gives me pleasure to see a new camera, like the Canon 60Dget ‘owned’ by my not so new Nikon D90. This information comes from DXo Mark. Canon users, I’m ready for your extreme dislike.

As far as the sensor goes, though, on they compared the Nikon D90, Sony Alpha 55 and the Canon EOS 60D. The 60D did not perform as well as the Sony which had an overall score of 73 and the Nikon which also had an overall score of 73. The Canon 60D scored only 66. The site only measures sensor performance, not the overall camera. The 60D had a more solid body, and like the a55, a rotating LCD screen—which is a must for video capabilities.

We recently did a post comparing the Canon 60D, T2i and 7D. For what it’s worth, Chris swears by his 7D.
