Just got my 60D today :) very happy. Can't wait until the battery is finished charging lol. I got this camera because next year I'll be travelling around the world for 6 months, and would love to get some good content for my site/blog!

can you include me in your luggage?

I've seen fantastic pictures come out of a 4mega pixel point and shoot, and crappy shots from a 5dII. It's not the camera. Nor is it the lens. It's the eye of the photographer/picture-taker. You either have *it*, or you don't.

I agree that a camera nor a lens will make a picture, but just tools in the whole process. Got to know your tools to produce.

ups, under where you choose raw. jpeg etc, i moved the slider for the jpeg.. should it be on the L with a round one or the L with the stepping blocks? the resolution and MP size is the same for both, so i don't know what one it was under. what RAW do you put it on?

any can anyone give me some tips on what shutter, iso, F stop, etc to use under certain conditions? i could use the auto settings but i'd like to try the manual ones out to get to know them better

GREAT pictures. Did you use a lens filter on any of these shots and/or post processing? Thanks.

Of course it’s about to”see” images but also to know the technique, to know the limitations and what’s possible in a specific camera gear. The one that is focused on creating images will do better with the mobile camera than many others will do with a 5D. E.g. he/she knows that the mobile camera won’t create crisp sharp details in landscape images and use he/hers knowledge to capture it in way that the mobile camera can do it. Heck I’ve even seen skilled people take fairly good photos with Nikon cameras.

But its still fun with good tools, the skilled carpenter could probably build his home with a dull knife but for the rest of us quality electrical hand tools do make us able to do stuff we otherwise wouldn’t do very good. Only an idiot would drive e.g. 2000 screws with a normal screwdriver when there are Screw guns available.

I will also claim that it’s easier to learn a craft/art for the beginner if they have good quality tool available to them. It’s first when you know the rope you can do good stuff with not so good tools. So that the crappie tools would be good enough for the beginner is nonsense. With quality tools you have eliminated one hurdle in the quest for knowledge of the trade.

I don't have any L series lenses and I'll go out on a limb here, but think what I shoot comes out pretty good.

Agree.

....However, there are some cases where the hardware helps! :p

The only thing missing, in this shot, are the Punch Maduro Maduro's and Partagas #10's!

1,3,5 are HDR's that were tonemapped in Photomatix then played with in PS, 2,4 are marginally processed in PS... mostly just boosting saturation/contrast.

This. Although with the caveat that you need gear that can produce the image you see. Doesn't matter if you have an L on your camera, if it can't do what you need then it's no good.

Along those same lines, my sister was here for a visit last weekend, and she wanted to see some of my recent photos. She kept saying over and over "wow, your camera takes really good pictures!" Sigh.
