If you are anything like me, the last thing you have an interest in doing is reading the often poorly written cameras manual that comes with your new digital camera.

It is usually more fun to tear open the camera packaging and dive right into taking some photos and exploring the menu and features of your new camera in a hands-on mode. That's why you bought the camera, so you could use it, right.

After that initial adrenaline rush is over and you've hand your hands on your new photography toy, I encourage you to set aside an hour to do some focused reading. Find a quiet place where you can read your manual, undisturbed by phone, email or people interruptions. Just you, your Canon 60D, and your manual.

No, it doesn't have to be a detailed read. Make it quick page by page preview, just to get an idea of how much information there is and also a quick idea of where some of the settings are and the capabilities lie for your 60D.


Canon 60D Manual Length

The Canon 60D manual is 324 pages long. That's even longer than the highly rated book: Canon EOS 60D: From Snapshots to Great Shots.

Canon 60D guide books that are written by pro photographers tend to have a much more user friendly approach to getting the most out of your camera.

Don't get me wrong.  The manual is an organized instruction booklet that is fairly well-written and very thorough.  The beginning pages include:

  • An item checklist to make sure that you received everything that you should have inside the box for the camera body.
  • Conventions and symbols used for the various camera controls explained in the booklet.
  • The list of the 14 chapters in the booklet.
  • Four pages of Table of Contents.  This is very useful!
  • A two page index for specific terms and topics covered.

One of the valuable bits of information is the differences between the Full Auto and Program modes explained on page 113. Many Canon users don't know the differences and both of these settings are popular with users because they foster a "set it and forget it" mentality that can cause laziness in using your camera to its fullest potential.

The manual has many diagrams and drawings to help you get around the cameras settings and functions.  If you;d like to see some actual photos, I made a page of close-ups of the buttons and dials on the Canon 60D body.
