Good eye BurnUnit. Though I stand corrected, everything I said above still stands - I love my 60D...

You probably don't realize how much I enjoyed hearing that. After cataract surgeries on both eyes and having a retina reattached I don't always trust my color vision as much as I used to. Plus I'm presently working on an older back-up monitor that hasn't been as carefully tweaked as the one that fizzled out on me.

The first two shots you posted are the ones that I thought might have been pumped up a skosh too much. Though looking at them again it may have been more of a contrast issue.

Ouch, sorry to hear about the vision issues!

My goal with my posts and corrections is to try to revive the 60D thread and encourage owners to not be too quick to "upgrade" to the latest and greatest. Get out of the 60D all that it has to offer. Ive poked around at other threads here, especially the 80D thread - what I see is too much post work to know how much better the 80D is to the 60D (SOOC shots). Always been my personal belief that if the current latest and greatest were THAT GOOD then lets see the SOOC shots. Nothing against doing post work, but I want to see what the camera can really do. All the bells and whistles mean nothing to me. I just want to see the camera stand on its own.

So there you have it, my $0.02 :)

Ed, what makes you think that SOOC jpegs are pure, unadulterated images, as the camera sees them?

Because they are not.

They are pre-cooked recipies that Canon incorporated in the JPEG engine. And they incorporated plenty of them, you can have dozens of SOOC JPEGs (one at each shot of course), sharper, softer, saturated, less saturated and so on. Your SOOC JPEG and mine, can be completely different, shot with the same 60D, with the same aperture, speed and ISO.

Really? Do I detect debate mode? "Ed, what makes you think that SOOC jpegs are pure, unadulterated images, as the camera sees them?" Answer is simple - they have NOT been processed or cooked in PS,LR or any other program. As in, you know, SOOC?

Simple point was and is, as I said, if the latest and greatest are SOOO much better than their predecessor, LET ME SEE. Show me what the camera can do on its own, all by its self, with how you have set it up inside. I think the 60D is an excellent camera, but I have been a little tempted to grab an 80D. But the more I see that SOOC is only marginally improved over the 60D I stop my self. 100 fps, 300 super cross type focus points, 1000 MP sensor and a million other bells and whistles that do nothing for image quality - for me, it means squat.

"They are pre-cooked recipies that Canon incorporated in the JPEG engine. And they incorporated plenty of them, you can have dozens of SOOC JPEGs (one at each shot of course), sharper, softer, saturated, less saturated and so on. Your SOOC JPEG and mine, can be completely different, shot with the same 60D, with the same aperture, speed and ISO......" You are just confirming and repeating what I said but in different words. I know that Canon has pre-cooked recipes built in to the camera - those are settings, and with those settings a lot can be done. Doesnt change what I said. I disagree - you and I,side by side, same camera and all settings the same, same lens and SAME subject - we would be hard pressed to see a difference in the image.

Again, would like to see the thread moving again with great shots, showing off what the camera can do.

No, you are wrong... There is no reason for me to debate with you on this or any other topic.

Carry on!

Sorry Gerry, I must have misinterpreted your tone by your words.

You take care, happy shooting.

It is always very hard (for me anyways) to be sure of the "tone" another user has in any forum, whether here or elsewhere.

I've been wanting to trade up for quite a while now but haven't pulled the trigger yet. I shoot a mix of everything, except people, and the 60D does almost everything I ask of it.

One of my biggest complaints with the 60D is the poor AI Servo when shooting BIF. But with a lot of practice on my technique I've been able to get a good number of keepers.

My other issue is that the images get pretty noisy over ISO 800. So if at all possible I try to keep it lower than that.

A few months ago I bought LR6 and started shooting RAW and it has really breathed new life into the 60D.

Right now I can't justify spending money on a new body because I'm still very happy with the results I'm getting from my 60D.

I love my 60D, I still have it and its a workhorse of a body. Mine has over 25k on the shutter. The Wife bought me the 80D for xmas body only and I do have to say the 80D to me is a world of difference. Image quality and I like that you can adjust exposure comp in full Manuel . I've tried it on the 60D and it will not let you do it in full Manuel. My 60D got a lot of great pictures. Just need good glass as everyone states.

I agree. Can be very challenging to know a persons true intent just from reading words, hence I likely jumped the gun. No harm, no foul ;)
