I upgraded from the XT mike, I enjoy this camera so much more. The battery takes longer to charge but last soooooo much longer as well :)

I'm new to DSLRs and struggle understanding some parts of the manual. Got a good book but when I checked out John Greengo's "Canon 60D - DSLR Fast Start" introduction (you-tube teaser):
http://www.creativeliv​e.com …canon-60d-dslr-fast-start (external link)
his visuals make it so much easier to understand.
If you have a 60D and have taken this class was it worth it?

i've never seen his dvd's, but maybe check this out.

http://www.learn.usa.c​anon.com …s/eos_60d_tutor​ials.shtml (external link).

save the money and just search for the question you have on google or ask here. we try to help each other as much as we can.:D

New papa to the 60D. Just traded in my xsi, so I upgraded a little. Can't wait to use it. This battery seems like it's taking forever to charge!!!!!!

welcome man.

What up? My name is Stephen and I live in Florida... If it isn't hot and sunny it is hot and raining. So I have had my 60D for a few month now and read the DSLR for dummies book, but still have issues. Read about aperture and shutter and ISO and everything but still manage to suck at taking pictures. I have the basic setup still. I use to have the 430EX flash but that was lost on some Disney World ride. I basically take all my shot with the presets and never the manual setting. I been fixing up my car a lot lately, so I been focusing on still shots. Please help ^.^

Here are some shots that are definitely weksos in comparison with the rest of you

Welcome to the board and definately add me as a contact on flikr. I shoot cars once in a while also. Currently rolling around a 500hp 240sx as my show/track car.

Yeah, actually I am putting some Swift Sports spring on in a little less then 2 weeks. Thanks too!

No, I have an iPhone 4 that is not jailbroken... Not too savey with that stuff. Plus, what is CC?

Edit: I might have answered my own question but is it Critique Corner?

Hoorah, can't wait to see it dropped, CC is like critique corner or I like to think as critique and comments, kinda like asking for opinion/advice on how to make the photo better and so forth..I just like opinions! It makes you feel great finally to be able to show your personality/style in the photography world.

Welcome to the forums! Lighting is always key, so try to do shoots and dusk when the lighting is better. Head over to thetransportation section to get ideas and critiques.

Newest addition to the family. Going to the Grand Canyon next week also, cant wait!

I am jealous of the driveway and the car...*drools*QUOTE]

Wish thatway my driveway, it's just a country road where I live, that no one every uses

Oh, damn country roads are so bad for lowered cars. I cringe when I hear the rocks kick into my fenders. Never bring a show car to the country. D:

Hey guys,
We went to San Francisco on Sunday, and of course I took the 60D and a 24-105L that I rented. Here's a couple pics from that day:

Nice shots! So how did you find the 24-105 for a walkaround lens? I currently use the 18-135 IS and feel the range is pretty good but would like to trade up eventually. Did you find yourself wanting more on either end very often or was it all pretty good? Tough to rent in Alaska without going online and paying that little extra in shipping.

I replaced my 18-135 IS with the 24-105 IS L and it is superior to the 18-135. The range is great and I did not miss the other range for a walk around lens at all.


5DMKII or 5D MK III
Enough gear for now... need to get out and shoot more.

I thought the range was just fine. Didn't miss either end. I really liked this lens. It's like the ultimate walk around lens. Thinking about doing some street corner whoring to afford one (kidding... sort of) :lol:

The heron was trying to impress upon the goose (and geese collectively) that they were hindering his stealthy fishing technique by wading around. The goose, on behalf of the collective, had choice words for the heron...

here is some candid Karma... this is one of the most beautiful women I've met, I often see her jogging and finally she was in a position where I could snap a shot but only had a split second to take the shot. Fail. :mad: :wink:

So yeah, after coming here to this website, I began to pick up on some things that are simple. I started to work with my camera on shutter speed and lowering the ISO. Here is what I came up with in the day I spent messing around trying to get things settled. Next, I will try and figure out how to use Flickr rather then using Photobucket.

Edit: Please excuse the last photo. The thing is hanging on my lamp and I was experimenting with the lighting from the lamp and trying to bounce it so that there wasn't to much glare of the doll ^.^ I am a nerd so yeah!
