I'll be honest with you if you use live view in 60D, auto focus speed is a disaster. Takes few second to focus an object. Not sure why but if you don't use the live view. it works fine.

I really hate the auto focus in 60 D with live view mode.

If you can tolerate the extra noise, using "quick mode" focusing in live view is faster. Amazing, but it is much quicker for the camera to lower the miror, autofocus using the focus sensors, and raise the mirror back up, versus trying to autofocus using the main sensor. (It's almost funny to watch it focus in live mode. Mine seems to make large steps first, then tick-tick-tick small steps trying to focus, then back to large steps, repeat, etc.)

The reason it's slower is because the image size is larger. The DIGIC-4 can process only so fast. Larger images take more time.

This is why the 7d has dual DIGIC-4 processors, so it can process data faster.

sure, no argument there - we saw the burst rate of the 50D go down from the 40D - with 5 more mp but faster processor. I was recalling that Canon specifically placed the 60D (performance wise) in between the T2i and 7D and I assumed Canon throttled back the burst rate a little - my bad ~ :confused: :mad:

Addendum: but I'll just throw this out there....
the T2i - (same file sizes as the 60D) why is it not 5.3fps? Because Canon 'purposely' throttles back the burst rate (and response times) of the Rebels - the entry level DSLRs. Of course they do - they are entry level. Who was around when Canon did the testing in their labs to see just how fast the Digic 4 could make the burst rate of the 60D? ;) Not me, but I'm not necessarily believing its topped out just because I get a response like "Man come on" :lol:

Well the rebels are built with shutters that don't cycle as fast. If you want to call that "throttle back" fine. They also have smaller buffers that fill faster.

But using that logic, you could say the 7d is "throttled back" because the 1dIV can run at 10FPS with dual DIGIC-4 processors.

I took the 60D to Kent Falls SP in Kent, Ct yesterday. There were a lot of people there so I had to move around a bit to find a shot of just the Falls.

Taken with the 18-135mm Kit Lens

Hello everyone,

Big thanks to all of you for sharing. I DID learn from you A LOT.

This is my first post in POTN. C&C are more than welcome.

Canon 60D + Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 non VC. Heavily cropped.

I was interested in the contrast of the sign to the well worn path to the falls, but from a purely landscape perspective I can see why you think it should be removed.

Man come on, anything below my Mark IV is throttled back. Just for you, Man come on get over it and who really cares, go take some pictures and stop worry about it. If you don't want to be held back then buy a better camera. Man come on

Theres alot more to fps than the processor. The shutter components share a large roll and look, the part numbers are different between the 7d, 60d and t2i/t3i. They only share the same sensor in the end.

Thats correct about the sensor. I could be wrong but thats what people should be most interested in. The fsp on the 60D really isn't that bad at all. To be perfectly honest, I was a little bothered by the little bit of noise in low ISO shots and I know we all see it. Yes you can edit it but why really. Enough gear talk from me, I'm going to go take pictures and try to be cool like Andrew :lol: and find a model to shoot. I need lots of practice shooting people.
