wow! would you mind tell me the aperture in this shot? and where did you focus because to me it looks spot on everywhere?

Hi there! This shot was captured at f/9, 1/200, and then processed in LightRoom.

Did anyone upgrade from the 50D to the 60D and want to share how you feel moving backwards would be? I'm in a sticky financial situation, and may be downgrading. Think I may end up with a 50D+24-105L for my total setup here soon...

Well, I didn't upgrade - but I did buy a 50D after using the 60D for over a year (reasons here)

My experience - Downsides to the 50D:


  1. High ISO is not usable, to me, above 1600
  2. Battery Life sucks by comparison - but the batteries are much cheaper.
  3. the UI of the camera is not nearly as good. Of course this may be a function of the fact I'm used to the 60D.
  4. I don't like the joystick - I much prefer the 60D's d-pad
  5. Very easy to accidentally turn the camera off -IMHO the location of the power switch on the 40D / 50D / 7D is horrid.
  6. too eassy to accidentally switch modes (i.e. from Tv to Av) without noticing it.
  7. Live View not as functional (again, to me).
  8. No video, unless you use ML, and then you get no audio.
  9. Swivel LCD - This was a primary reason I bought the 60D, as I used it extensively on my S2IS and A80. I've used it maybe twice hand held since I purchased the 60D. Handy for tripod work, but... not a deal maker for me any more.
Where I don't think there's a noticeable difference:

  1. IQ at lower ISO - honestly, for what I do mostly (kids sports) - I can't tell the difference
  2. Focusing speed (I use center point and recompose almost exclusively)
50D Advantages (again, to me):

  1. Feel - the mag body, and the size difference, make it simply feel nicer in my hands. That's a toally subjective evaluation, of course, but I now understand (though disagree with) the "toy camera" comments made by 60D detractors. I have long beleived that the "best" camera is the one that feels like an extension of you - and the 50D does this for me.
  2. Burst Mode / shutter response - It's a slight increase, but for what I do, it's noticeable. I've gotten a slightly higher number of BOB and BIF shots with the 50D (Ball on Bat and Ball in Frame).
I tried to use a 40D, as well - and I simply wouldn't recommend it - it's too much of a downgrade, and t he price differential between the 50D and 40D used is not that much.


I currently have both bodies - if you have any specific questions or tests you want run, I'll try to answer help- but I don't have the 24-105.

My intent was originally to sell the 50D after the season, and I like it so much I may sell the 60D instead (or sell both and snag a refurb 7D through CLP). That said, except for the games, if I want to take pics, currently, I grab the 60D.

Just got my 60D as an upgrade from the T3 which my daughter now owns - and is she ever excited! We are planning a photo trip this weekend. Will post pictures once I get them. Can't wait!!!:D:D:D:D:D:D

Congrats! Welcome to the 60Doers family. The most active thread here in POTN IMO...

I'm moving away from the 60D and onto FF. Just purchased the 5D MKIII and today sold my 60D. The 60D is a fantastic camera and I learn't so much through using it and looking through this thread.

Keep up the good work chap's..!

Mark

I'm really considering this lens, I can't justify the price for the canon. How do you like it?

great write-up man.

I had the 50D and I liked that the 60D was a bit smaller so that was just one reason for getting the 60D. As I was reading it went through my mind - but did you try the 60D gripped - and then saw your sig...

I prefer the feel of the 60D gripped. I have smaller hands but the 60D gripped feels better because it dips below my palm and more substantial. If I had bigger hands and the 60D gripped was still smallish - I'd go for the 7D. The 50D felt to boxy and chunky for me. Hope you find a good refurb or CPL 7D, gripped. Cheers,

    I honestly believe that the Plastic/Magnesium body discussion is a psychological one, mostly created by the Forums discussions IMHO
    Yes, if you have a 50D next to the 60D, you will feel a different in weight to it as you have both cameras in your hand to compare.
    But once you start shooting, that difference becomes irrelevant (again IMO).
    If you let a 30,40,50D fall to the ground it will dent and it might or might not brake or fail
    The 60 D will dent as well.
    I dont think in real life situations, the durability of both types of body construction will affect tremendously in surviving a catastrophe.
    Take a look at this DigitalRev video, is pretty compelling as plastic durability goes IMO
