I wouldn't say they're incomparable but I think your question is like asking which you'd rather buy between a Vauxhall Astra and Vauxhall Insignia.

I think the 60D ticks more boxes when it comes to photography but for video, I think the 600D is arguably the winner.

However, if I were to spend my own money, I'd take the 60D. With that said, I think whether to buy one or the other depends on what you want to do with it.

More photo-oriented, and the bigger body and better ergonomics means I'd pick the 60D.

60d has all the video features of 600d.

However, I traded my 60d in for 550d and very happy. So, I would recommend playing with both before making decision.

I'm pretty sure that's not the case. I don't think the 60D has digital zoom and there's another feature (I don't remember its name) where you can film clips just a few seconds long then put them in a sequence.

As an owner of a 600D I have to say that the digital zoom feature of the 600D is genius! If you plan on doing lots of filming this can be very useful as it can extent all your lenses by almost 3x without loss of quality (and up to 10x with loss of quality)
However, for stills the 60D is the better bet

I've had the same dilemma and after alot of research decided I'll be going for the 60D. Mainly because I will be using it for photos rather than video and it has slightly better specs for that.

But as soon as I made my mind up the 7D peeked its head in so now I'm stuck between the 60D or 7D. The only reason the 7D has come into the picture is because the price on them has dropped quite significantly and is not far off the 60D price...so I'm still undecided at the moment :?

Suffice to say the 5D Mark 2 won't be coming to mind, mainly due the price but also it's too advanced for my skills for now :)

From what I'm reading and the reviews it looks like the 60d is the way to go.
