'Nother 60D/Nifty 250 combo shot. The AF on the lens can be frustrating at times, but the challenge is fun :)

I think that is a very good shot, much better than what i have achieved with my 30d, I have tried similar but just got a jittering bird with wings and body mainly oof, and these were just swallows, so it looks like the 60d is better focusing than mine.

Indeed the AF system on the 60D is very good for what it is, the lens also aids this. The AF on the 250 is painful at times when compared to my 70-200 which snaps to focus so fast it's scary. Settings are going to play the biggest role, i've not tried to do birds in flight with the 250 yet but feel that could quickly become a frustrating task :lol:

I have a question about the 60d - as it has 3 levels of raw capture and with one of these i believe being about 10mp, i read somewere this gives an advantage of better IQ and even lower noise, but i wonder what would happen if you then cropped one of these reduced raw amounts to enlarge a pic, would it be the same as the 60d's normal 18mp image or better/worse?
Just interested.

no expert but a few points:

in the lifespan of the 60D's existence I've not come across anyone who shoots at a lower resolution, not have I read "anywhere" there is "any" advantage to doing this. Why its offered I'm not sure.

Secondly, regarding enlarging, the original should be set to a high dpi as in above 300 dpi. Any time you enlarge you best be dealing with an already high resolution original.

I'm not a pro but people are shocked at how good the images were with the 20D just until recently. I was more shocked at how quiet the 60D's shutter is. 6D must be VERY quiet in comparison. I'm honestly happy as the 20D got too much attention in a quiet place.

And with the 60D's increased sensitivity night time photography is becoming so much more fun! This was last month up in the mountain. Around 22 second exposure.

Im hoping to move up to a 60d from my 30d soon, I have a nifty 250 so im keen to see how the two get on together, some of the pics combining both have inspired me and show a good level of detail.

Don't know that I've ever heard that shooting at a lower resolution would give you better image quality. Sounds counter-intuitive to me. Though I do occasionally shoot at less than 18mp if I'm not worried about making larger prints. If for no other reason than the image files download to my computer faster and process faster. If you're planning to do any in-camera RAW processing I think that will only work on the 60D with full 18mp RAW files.

However, you may have heard someone referring to downsizing an image slightly after editing to improve image quality in certain situations. Doing so will sometimes add a very slight bit of "sharpness" to a picture, or slightly reduce some noise issues if they aren't too serious to begin with.

I have heard this, and it is a false truth. All the smaller sizes are doing are basically reverse interpolating pixels down to a smaller size. Because of this, things like edges go from being say 5 pixels wide to 2, so they *appear* sharper. Also, noise is averaged across a few pixels as the image is resized down.

Basically, you can achieve the same thing by resizing the image in post...or better yet, maintaining the same high resolution and doing some good noise reduction and tweaking sharpness.
