I am a film director and just bought this camera to shoot a commercial for a VERY large and well known car company. We made the decision to shoot on Canon DSLR's not only for budget reasons, but for the amazing quality of HD video they can deliver in an extremely small, portable package. I started testing 7D's and 5DMKII's earlier this year, and when this commercial came up, it took me a long, long time to finally decide on which camera to buy for myself to use on this and many other future projects. I'm used to shooting on 35mm film and high end digital cinema cameras, and overall image quality is very important to me. After an internal struggle pulling me towards the 5DMKII for the larger sensor and all the benefits that come with it, I ended up choosing the 60D mainly for the articulating LCD screen, and MAN did I make the right choice! We shot with 1 5DMKII, 3 7D's, 1 T2i and my new 60D, and even though the 5DMKII has the bigger sensor and the 7D's have dual processors, more than HALF the shots in the final commercial came from my new 60D! The LCD made it possible for me to operate shots that I would never have gotten as smoothly on the other cameras, and I'm not just talking about extreme low or high angles. What finally made me thrilled with my choice is that you can barely tell the difference between the 60D and the "better" cameras in the finished commercial, which still amazes me. I've taken some stills with it as well, and they look great to my very picky eye. If you are looking for a DSLR for high end video in a small package, I would STRONGLY recommend the 60D.
