Customer Question

I bought an EOS 60D new in 2011. The images it takes are lackluster and usually slightly off color. I took a long Motorcoach trip around the country immediately after purchase, and wanted to put up a blog so our friends could follow our trip. 90% of the images I wanted to post had to be significantly refined (color shifted/enhanced) in Photoshop before posting because the images were so blah. I used the .jpg files rather than raw files because after the first week or so, my internal and external drives got too full with raw files to continue.
The camera still takes crappy pictures, such that now I use my Samsung phone camera rather than the Canon. The Samsung takes much better quality images than my 60D. I have 6-8 top of the line Canon EF lenses from the 90s when I was doing pro work with 2 EOS-1 bodies. I really want to get back to using the 60D and lenses, but don't want to have to use Photoshop or Lightroom to correct all my images.
Are there any sort of firmware updates that can be applied to the 60D that may correct the image problems I continue having? If so, how do I go about getting them installed?

Hi. My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with almost 30 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.

If you have tried adjusting the white balance for better image color and your images are still off color then the image sensor may need to be re-calibrated. This can only be done at a factory authorized facility. here is a link to the Canon service site where you can arrange to have the camera serviced and get the problems corrected.
