I think I saw another post trying to do something similar to this but, last time I checked it was more "bickering" than people who had the camera posting photos.

Here's one I took with my Canon 60D. Not very good but I've only had the camera a few hours. I wanted to get the ball rollin' so, here ya' go! :) Show me some pics!

I'm curious...the plastic body still bothers me so until I can hold one, no opinion but I still don't know if it's an upgrade.

I'd like this thread to be for those who have the camera to post their pics.

But here's a lil' food for thought, a friend of mine has the 7D and it's very special to him. He got a hold of my 60D and was immediately impressed by the feel and grip, saying it feels very similar to the 7D in terms of weight and build. I can say the same as well, he also liked the articulating screen :D

Coming from a very, very plastic XTi, the 60d does not feel plastic at all, it's very sturdy and rubberized.

Here's hoping this doesn't turn into yet another hate fest from all the people who DON'T own this camera and don't actually want to.

Shots look good!

I ordered one for the wife today - due to arrive on Monday. I'm sure it'll have a few hundred clicks on it by the time she gets hold of it :D

She's very excited by it (so am I actually...) and I'm sure the quality of her pics is going to be noticeably improved coming from a 350D.

I'll whack some shots up Monday night ;)

Posted in the other 60D thread.

Well, just fiddled around with the 60D, and I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. While plastic looking, it feels solid. More solid than my friend's XTi, and still better than the T2i my co-residents have. It's not that well balanced with the 35L on it, but it's not top heavy either. Maybe I'm just used to the 1D MKIII and 5DII

The buttons all fall into place very well, and one handed operation of the camera is nice. The top buttons don't feel any different to me. I really only used the ISO button rapidly/frequently. AF, Drive, Metering Mode, Exposure Compensation, etc all rarely were changed... and when I did change something it was only AF mode. So, I still have quick access to my two most used top button functions (old and new).

The rear button fit real nice in my hand (remember I used to shoot with a 1D MKIII and now use a 5DII). So, it's nice to have access to all the things I need with one hand. I do and don't miss the joystick. Using the new directional pad (D-pad) is intuitive. One plus is the ability to manually select AF points using the D-pad. I set it up for manual AF Point selection in the Custom Functions, and it's awesome with the D-pad.

Top dial. Boo for the button. Boo for it putting video mode allll thee wayyyyy on the opposite side of M mode. Why didn't Canon make the movie mode switch like the 7D? It's really a shame, since the camera is great ergonomically otherwise.

Speaking of Video, it's different. I'm not a fan of not being able to close down the mirror and let the sensor rest while in Video mode. I have to wait for it to go to sleep, and I like to control things and let the sensor rest. I'm assuming that the sensor is in fact "working" during Video mode even if it's not recording, because it previews your exposure for you. If there's a way to manually close the mirror in Video Mode I'd like to know. I also don't like how I can't change the AF points while in Video mode. Sometimes I like to quickly focus on my subject prior to shooting the video, and that means I like to change my AF point as necessary. One last thing. I only see a 720p setting for 60fps. No 24 or 30fps option with 720p, as those only seem to be available with 1080p.

Flash sync is nice. You can control two groups (A and B) off camera. You can have it shoot with the popup flash (lame) or use the popup flash as the trigger only (awesome). However, if your subject is close enough it'll over expose the subject a bit (lame). Regardless of popup flash setting, it will fire. Whether or not it's used to expose the scene is the only difference between the modes. Otherwise, it works, and it works well.. indoors. I haven't tried it outdoors yet, but if I can get about a 20-30 foot radius with this on sunny days, it'd be awesome. As it stands now, it doesn't compare to PocketWizards or any other reliable wireless trigger.

Overall feel of the camera is nice, and I will say it's a huge step up from the 40D. I took several shots at ISO 800 and 3200 and purposefully underexposed them to see how they'd handle noise. Will post those photos up later.


Photos here:
Shot in RAW, underexposed intentionally by 1/2 stop.
Processed in Adobe Camera Raw to compensate for exposure and set White Balance to my tungsten bulbs in the room. AI Servo Focus on the dog's eye.
No sharpening at all.
Full exif should still be intact.

Those of you bashing the 60D might want to reconsider how inferior to the 50D this camera is. I'd gladly let my girlfriend learn and grow into this camera, so that I can play with a crop sensor here and there.

I have a sneaking suspicion there will be quite a few "I love my 60d camera" threads showing up on the internet over the next year. ;)

Anyone thinking of having a direct, hands on comparison/review of the 60D alongside the 7D out in the field?


My 500px. (external link) I like action (external link) and volcanoes. (external link) Dragons (external link) and temples (external link) are fine, too!
I don't think the Earth revolves around me. It revolves around the Sun, which shines out of my ass.

one thing i would like to have on 7D is the lock button on the dial as i sometimes (when handling the camera out of the bag)
it take me few shots to realize i use the wrong mode! (as it was moved while handling)
not a big deal - but nice

nice pictures guys enjoy your great new toy
show us a duck and have luck!
