Canon EOS 60D Review

At first blush, you’d think the EOS 60D would be more capable than the older EOS 50D. That’s only partially true. It’s got more pixels and a more sophisticated metering engine, but it lacks the metal body and has a lower maximum continuous shooting speed. Making those changes allowed Canon to lower the price a bit: the EOS 60D body can be found for less than $1,000, while the kit with the 18–135mm IS lens is about $1,200.

Nikon D3100 Review

The D3100 is a welcome update to earlier entry-level DSLRs from Nikon, which offered aging sensor technology and limited feature sets. The D3100 sports a 14.1MP CMOS APS-C sensor with very good low-light capabilities for a camera in its class. Overall, the D3100 is a fine entry-level DSLR but is marred a little by awkward body balance.
