Your photo needs are expanding, and the equipment youâ€™re currently shooting with canâ€™t live up to your ideal expectations.
The point and shoot has its place in your routine, as does your POV camera, but itâ€™s time you bite the bullet for a digital SLR â€“something to confidently capture both high-resolution imagery and high-definition video.

Canon 60D and EF-S 15-85mm Lens. Saltpond Bay, St.
John, USVI.Nestled comfortably between the pro-level Canon 7D and the beginner Rebel lineup is the semi-professional, very-intuitive Canon 60D. Itâ€™s constructed with a compact, non-magnesium alloy shell, which easily sheds some weight from its footprint. The 60D is also feature-rich: APS-C 18.0 megapixel sensor, 5.3fps, 100-6,400 ISO (expandable to 12,800), DIGIC 4 processor, 1080p HD video w/in-camera editing, SD / SDHC / SDXC storage, and in-camera RAW processing.
Canon 60DThe 60D comes at a price point that will certainly make the transition to DSLR as smooth as the photo and video it captures. $999.99
This particular travel kit was outfitted with the EF-S 15-85mm lens (f/3.5-5.6), a savvy, multi-purpose lens. The focal length is equal to 24-136mm in 35mm format, and the EF-S 15-85mm offers image stabilization and high-precision optics from wide-angle through telephoto. $799
