maybe Canon will give us a firmware Christmas gift if they want to sell more 60D bodies this season... ... But Unlikely

I just was playing wiht my 60D and new 85mm 1.8 and it's awesome.

talk about a huge upgrade in iso performance and speed compared to my xsi.

the swivel screen is just awesome for video and you can take some decent self portraits with the GF :) -- told her it was one of the reason for upgrading :P

I'm new here and I've had my 60D for 1 week now and I am still in the learning process. I'm a novice photographer upgrading from the T1i. My two brothers-in-law have the 7D and 5D2 but i just couldn't afford either nor would it be worth it for a non-artsy beginner like me. I've read so many reviews on the pros and cons but this is just right for what I need and like. I hope to get better and share some photos. All in all the 60D may not be for well trained and accustomed but it's certainly the one for me.

Guys, when shooting snow, if you don't want to end with grey snow and dull pictures, add 1/3 or 2/3 of exposure. Your white will punch more :)

Thanks for the tip. I'll remember that one.

Or an alternative - if you are comfortable doing some basic editing - adjust the White Balance so the snow is 'white' (or at least the shade you want) instead of adjusting exposure to get a brighter 'grey'. I often give my snow a very slight 'blue' which is a cooling colour, relevant to snow/cold scenery.

apply a touch of saturation so other subjects in the shot come to life.
Just a few random thoughts.

60D all indoor lighting Tamron 17-50, f2.8, 1/30, ISO 320, straight out the camera no editing. It was my wife's idea to get the early start on decorating.

Lucky you if you think that's early. Christmas decorations have been up in my house since I went away for a week in early November! ;) I came home to Santa's kingdom!

How are you liking the 17-50? I'm loving mine.

But you have to go easy in the WB if there is someone in the frame. You don't want to make them look sick ;)

Many of think the mode-dial button is a pain and not needed - but look! Now you can pay for it for your 5D II and 7D!

thanks for the tips - I realised yesterday after taking those christmassy pictures . . anyway, I am shooting all these in RAW as well, so, I am going to experiment with adjustments.:D

Photoshop 9 is available in UK at below £70.

Do you guys think this could be a good way to start learning the art of PP ?
