Also some ND filters.

Learn the basics first yeah...but then tools ARE required to get photos similar to what one sees in magazines.
If I remember right, the D60 is more complicated than the Rebel and is used more by news photographers. As mentioned, his is about $1,000, and the 3Ti Rebel is about $700 or so I think. My Brother in Law has one and loves it!
Remember not to transpose the model numbers.
The Canon D60 is an old camera from the early 2000's, the 60D is the current Canon lower high end camera.
Nikon started to use the DXX labeling so Canon went to XXD labeling.

The 60D also went to SD cards vs CF Cards.

POTN is probably the best Canon forum on the internet, so I would register there and learn from them. Quite a few of them are professional photographers and they post their work as well as tips and tricks.
Thanks for the heads up on the D60 vs. 60D. I wasn't aware of that.

Here's a shot of my old Canon D60 box, along with the 20D and 40D boxes.

I'm glad you're interested guys! I think I'm going with the 60D because the only other cameras I have is a Finepix a330 and a JVC video camera. These both take photos, but I've worked out the a330 completely, and the JVC (which I got in November 2011) video camera doesn't have a flash so it's always blurry, even on a tripod. I have also found all the settings on that, but there aren't that many. You know, sometimes when I take a picture I want to change the settings.
Yes, I can't wait for the 60D!

I can only imagine it's quite a learning curve, but right out of the box you have one crazy nice body. Now you can study up on the glass with some excellent filters and lenses.....enjoy, I'm jealous.

Great choice of camera. I'm jealous.

I would recommend you look through some websites or buy a subscription to a photography magazine. The mag is a better choice as you can read it easier. Here in the UK I had a subscription to Digital Photo (fantastic for learning to start with as they have step by step tutorials) and I now have a subscription to Practical Photography (their sister magazine and better for creative ideas). Digital Photography, Digital Cameras & Photographers | Photo Answers. Does ship to Austrailia but at a higher cost (£50). Would highly recommend it though.

I was actually watching YT videos and all that on photography for about 6 months, so as soon as I took it out of the box I nearly knew how everything worked! If you search 'gln2d3' on DeviantArt you'll see a few pictures I've taken with it. This camera is really amazing, haha I used the 55-250mm lens and zoomed up to my neighbour's shed, and my backyard is huge.
