Well, you wont get so much performance boost between class 6 and 10 that you think... (it wont be 100 percents instead of 60)

Thank you Ruben and dingo for your replies. I found a card that suited me. I did a bit of searching around in a few stores and found a class 10 card. I understood before I made the purchase that many comments I had read mentioned that a 6 would do the job well and that the 10 was sporting only a bit more in performance but the 10 class I decided on was on sale and that helped in making a choice. I'm by no means a savvy shooter but I'm having fun playing around with this camera so far! Thanks again. :)

PostPosted: Mon Oct 10, 2011 7:01 pm 
After a year of researching reviews of the 600d / Rebel T3i, the Nikon D5000 & D5100, I have now come to the conclusion as to what i want the DLSR for plus what it can give me in return. So i have opted for the 60d & will hopefully be purchasing soon!!! I'm a complete beginner therefore have lots to learn my way around a DLSR...but i am looking forward to the world of photography :lol:

Hi Gordon and the Canon Group.

Been planning on my first DSLR for some time and finally took the plunge and purchased a 60D. Arrived last week but still not had the chance to get out with it yet. :-) Hope to remedy that this week.

Many thanks for the excellent site, my buy was based on your unbiased revue, not recommendations which I think Camera Labs does very very well.

Many Many thanks.
Just going to look through your linked accessories to give a little bit back.
Andy

You may have seen my other thread as I'm considering either the 60 or 7d as my first dslr.

I'm now about 99% certain this will be the 60d, having tried the 7d in store I think it size /bulk would put me off especially as a novice I'd hardly be discreet working out what I need to do. I just want to put my mind at rest on a couple of things.

Will the 60d give me the ability to do some wildlife work possibly birds in flight or is the a/f system just not up to it?

I'm reading lots about sharpness or rather lack of it - is this camera really that bad?

My lens choices are as follows

the Canon 15-85 -

Canon 100mm macro

the Tamron 70-30

I tried the 15-85 on the 7d body and its a big lens is there anything on par, similar focal range without the bulk ?

Any comments on the other two choices and their suitability for this body

cheers

Today I got the chance to try out the 60D in my local store and I have to admit it feels pretty good in my hands. The grip is quite nicer than the ones on the Rebel series of DSLRs and it's also quite bigger. Also, I like that it's heavier, with longer lenses it's easier to handle.
I will be considering it as an upgrade in the future, after I buy a cheaper DSLR to start learning.

The Integrated Speedlite transmitter also provides in-camera control of multiple EX flash units for more creative lighting.

Hi all, wonder if someone could help me. I have recently purchased a 60d with 18-55 and Canon 70-300 IS and my friend has a old Nikon D40x.

He took a picture from his window of a yellow van and then took the exact same shot with my 60d and he says my picture taken with the 60d the yellow van looks not vibrant enough and kind of washed out where as his exact shot the colours look more vibrant. He says he has not messed with his settings and I have not changed mine.

Has anyone come across this or is there anything I can check in the settings to make sure my 60d is set up correctly?

The D40x is known for its vibrant image processing which most beginners like. Dont bother, the 60D's colours are much better.
If you really want it though, check the Picture Styles and choose another one than the standard.

Or you can always post-process it later for better results IMO

The 60D fits like a glove and is comfortable to use. I cheaped out and bought the kit lens 18-55 IS - the 50mm prime f1.8 showed just how poor this is. I'll have to go to the 17-55 USM, which costs more than the camera.
