What do you do when you want to shoot something big but your lens isn't wide enough and you can't go backward anymore?

You shoot multiple shoot and you stitch them in post after!

15 pictures shot at 24mm.

Great shot David. Did you use a pan head, regular tri-pod or hand-hold for the 15 shots? What did you use to merge?

Snow? What's snow? Here in New Jersey we've have the warmest winter on record. There has been around 20 day or so over 50 degrees F. A few hovering around 60. and later this week on Thursday it may hit almost 70! We've been having early Spring weather most of the winter.

Yeah, we've got the same in Maryland. I've been able to take the motorcycle out at least once a week all winter. I could get used to this. :D

Unfortunately this will probably mean a hotter than normal summer also and that will be intolerable. When the temps get into the mid 90s it's like riding in a convection oven.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to get the shutter repaired then to buy the 40D?

Knowing him, my money's on "my catcher sucks!" - he's one of the top players in his age group in the area, and he demands excellence from his team-mates.

Tough to see from that pic, but the runner is just about to go into his slide - he beat the tag easily, and he really should have been out - he got a poor jump on the ball. The throw was simply not hard enough.

But, those are exactly the kind of things that happen on opening day, which is why I sent the runner.

Hey selling some gear, got it posted in the classifieds, seeing if any 60Ders might have any interest in a Canon 55-250mm brand new never used once, purchased for trip last year that was canceled, my Tamron 17-50 non-vc 2.8. and a messanger bag

Wouldn't it be cheaper to get the shutter repaired then to buy the 40D?

Shutter repair, as I understand it, is around $300, and I'm sitting at 70k actuations, and I'll burn through about 20k more on baseball the next two months, and another 3k on a martial arts tournament.

The 40D was $360 with 3k actuations, and the 50D was $490 with 9k. I'm auctioning the 40D currently (shameless plug - see my sig - it's in excellent condition) and awaiting a 50d, which should arrive Wednesday.

Even with the 1.4x and my 70-200 at 200L, I still need a bit of cropping to get acceptable (to me) pics of the outfielders, and 10.1MP doesn't have the headroom that I want.

That's one of the reasons I started looking for a 50D (the other is that the high ISO on the 40D is not nearly as good as I'm used to, which counts on cloudy days and night games)

The point, however, was to buy, use, then sell. If I do it right, I think I go from a worst case scenario of losing $100 to a best case scenario of making $20. And I get to play with different tech, which has value to me.

And if I end up not selling, well, I have what I consider to be a very nice backup body. Although going from a 60 to the prior models really shows the small but really critical user interface changes that Canon made, and in my opinion improved, on the 60d.

Wow, when did you get your 60D? it's only been available around 18 months. Assuming you got it very early, that still almost 4K activations a month. And with the baseball, you'll have almost 100k by the start of summer I understand your concerns. 20K on kids baseball in 2 months? Again, wow. I've had my 60D for almost 9 months and have around 14K on it. At an average rate of a around 1600 shots per month, I thought that was a lot.

Here's an image of my back yard and pond using the 15-85. It was a grey afternoon. It's much prettier in the summer.

I've had my 60D for almost 9 months and have around 14K on it. At an average rate of a around 1600 shots per month, I thought that was a lot.

Got it late december of 2010 - and promptly broke my wrist on christmas eve, so I couldn't really shoot for 1.5 months. but the average is ~4.5k shots per month.

On the baseball, I know it may seem high, but ... burst mode is your friend! And "H" chews through actuations like nobody's business (that's why I chose the 60D, actually). I coach 10U, so I'm in a position that almost no other parent can get to, most of the time, with unobstructed sightlines to all bases. burst mode lets me get the entire play, which I sometimes use as coaching aides, but that's really not why I do it.

Most importantly, my kid's only 10 once. That really helps with the SAF ("spousal acceptance factor") for gear purchases.

The worst part, in many respects, is I didn't really pay attention to the MTBF on the shutter until about a month and a half ago, when I started evaluating what my kit was, and what I wanted - and when eoscount.com went live, while I wasn't terribly surprised, um, it kind of made me realize i needed to start budgeting for a shutter in some manner.

And like I said above, I like playing with tech - that in and of itself has entertainment value to me.

I understand. And at the rate your going it should be at risk of failure just about the time they release a 70D (or a 7D Mark II). Be honest now. I won't tell your wife. Did you play it that way? :D

Well, I was kind of planning on a new camera just in time for the Christmas holidays - but you don't think that the oldest two models in the line up would be released in time for the holiday sales, do you?

Naw, that wouldn't happen. ;)

Morning all 60D'ers,

Made it home safely from Thailand where I picked up a couple of new lenses (Tammy 17-50 and the Daddy Canon 70-200 2.8 L IS MkII). Got a few good shots which I'll be posting soon, a lot of hangovers, and was left stranded in Phuket... What a place to be stranded hey?

Hope everyone's well.
