Thinking about upgrading from an XSi, but not because I really need anything... it's a great little camera. What I would like:

1) two more stops of ISO. The XSi can't shoot above 1600.
2) more dynamic range. Having even an extra stop of DR (two would be the proverbial icing) would be great for reducing the number of times I have to bump up fill light
3) second control wheel -- why not

To be frank, the camera that suits this spec list best is the D7000, but going down this path would mean replacing all of my lenses. The 5D3 is also a contender but is even more outrageously expensive. The 60D fits the bill for two of the three, but given that it doesn't meet all three desires, I'm not sure it's a wholescale upgrade. I can make use of the XSi for now; these are just things I wish I had for a minority of situations.

Given that you all are 60D shooters, any thoughts? How is the 60D's dynamic range, as that's the biggest one on my list right now?

Did not shoot RAW to play with... I also need to bring the exposure about a stop down... I shot it as a test, talking with a photographer friend

A few from my drive home today - the weather was pretty icky so it wasn't really worth stopping as often as I usually do:

Good job on the business portrait, and I like this one too...

Anyone else think this looks like a painting?

Hinson: What size are you printing the metal prints? How are you displaying them? Which of the finishes have you used, and which do you prefer? (options are: High Gloss, Satin, Sheer-Glossy, & Sheer-Matte)

I'm very intrigued, but candidly I print very rarely - and the size I would like is a bit much for my budget.

If Dynic Range is your Alpha and the 5D3 is out of your budget, then I will assume the 1D4 and its full frame bretheren are out of budget as well. With that said, the only Canon game left in town then is the 5D2, 7D, 60D, 50D in that order.

With that short list in mind, from a pure cost/performance basis, the 5D2 seems to be the winner. Unless of course feature set is important, but that is a personal thing, which is why I chose the 60D originally. Albeit the moment I was able to afford it, I added the 5D2.

The 60D is an amazing camera for the money IMO.

Good Luck,

Had to do a business portrait today, used the 60D + 70-200mkII. Let me know what you think of it.

Great job as usual. Excellent expression on the part of your client. He's like communicating to the audience.

One thing though, does it not look like a wax? i don't know. Maybe because i'm tired.

Another thing is... it's done with your 60D. it does look like coming from your 5d Mark II.

I've never heard of metal prints before, do they suit particular types of photo or are they just more "wow" factor than standard post/canvas prints?

I'm very intrigued, but candidly I print very rarely - and the size I would like is a bit much for my budget.

My standard showboard is 16x24, High Gloss. They are drop-shipped directly to the client and they display them in various ways, either standing in a base, leaning on the car, setting in the trunk, etc. I'll get some pics next weekend and post them.

For me, it's the 'WOW' factor and the fact that they are water proof (compared to paper prints mounted on a substrate). IMO, they are useless at smaller sizes but can make great wall arrangements.

Personally, I'd prefer a nice canvas print for a wall portrait but metal works great for art shots.

Thanks - I'd be interested to see your pictures of them - my sister is due to have her first around about now, I was going to do a canvas portrait for her, but I'd be interested in seeing what the metal ones look like (hard to visualise them in my head).

Hey guys, I found this on a POTN 70D rumors thread and I wanted to share. Who knew that someone could get this angry at a camera they don't own? LOL

I'll apologize for this poster's bad syntax in advance. I do enough writing and editing in a week—didn't feel the need to do more.

enjoy . . .

"Semi pro line-10d through 50d line, the 60d really doesn't fit in this line, I truly don't understand where it fits other than a crappy super rebel, I honestly hate the 60d regardless of how good of images it could take, the thought of my self at one point in time sickness me...

5d and 7d- these cameras are a line of their own, these are the closet thing to pro cameras other than boing and buying a 1d, these cameras are split in 2 groups, 5d is mostly portrait line, where as the 7d is a sports line. So why would the then turn around and make the 7d a stupid 70d? Makes no since to me.

Professional line- this is obviously the 1d line up, ever since this camera was released it's been the pros choice. 1d's are such great cameras, they have the portrait line and the sports line, 1ds MK II, 1ds MK III, etc. 1d MK II, 1d MK III, 1d MK IV, and now the 1dx, so they obviously have their market set strait, they will continue to make their 1d line like this, portrait camera, sports camera, that simple, I for see this with the 5d line up as well...

So naming the 7d MK II a 70d would be a absolute wrench in canons line up, makes no since to me, but what do I know...
"



If a camera "SICKENS" him, he is going to have a long hard life of disappointment.

Do I think the 60D is a direct replacement for a 50D, not really, I think the 7D fits that bill. But with the gap between the high end rebel and the 7D needing filled, the 60D does a good job of bridging the gap.

Canon has now created a different class of camera in the 60D, Pro-ish controls, rebel portability, and new video features.

It seems they are saying to there customers, if you want pro features, pay for a pro body; if you want easy of use, get a rebel; if you want a bit of both and some nice extras, get a 60D.

Coming from a 20D, while I miss the idea of a magnesium body, I do not miss the actual carrying of it. Combine a 20D, a 100-400L and sometimes a flash, that is a pain in the butt to carry around all day!
