This Canon camera has been on the market for over four years.

Average Display Diagonal

The EOS 60Da has a relatively standard display diagonal (3 inches) compared to most of the other digital cameras of a similar age and spec to the EOS 60Da.

We compared this camera to all the other 3" screen cameras and we think the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm[plb_964_price], and the Pentax K-5 II[plb_1452971_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the Df[pl_1740408_price] (3.2" and higher rated), the D4[pl_1998795_price] (3.2" and higher rated), or the D610 + AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR + AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED + 32GB[pl_2024275_price] (3.2" and higher rated) all from Nikon.

If you would prefer a digital camera with a better memory card type then you might want to consider the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm[pl_964_price] (MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Alpha A3000[pl_2681017_price] (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC) both from Sony which also has a higher rating.
