Went down to B&H to look at the 60d, the 7D, the T2i and to pick up a tabletop tripod. Met up with Matt there, eventually. But first I made my way to the Canon counter just as the 60D was brought out for display for the first time. Wow. Exciting. And a pretty girl from Portugal wanted advice about which camera to get for movie making, so that was fun too. She kept asking, “Is this a good one? How about this one. Is that a good one?” Afterwards, I could picture her at the market asking the seller if some vegetable was ripe yet. It was sort of like that, and I wouldn’t have spent anytime (to be honest) answering questions from a man. Anyway, she wandered around, and we kept bumping into each other all morning, and eventually I said good-bye and good luck, and headed to the tabletop display.
Oh, before that – what about the 60D.
I was impressed with the 60D in terms of the auto-focus which seemed to be, well it was, much faster than my T1i, but I didn’t get a chance to compare it to the T2i. But the LCD swivel screen is pretty useful for people like me that don’t want to look you in the eye, and what else… yes the camera is bigger and heavier compared to the T1i… I don’t care about that. And I eventually walked away with Matt chirping in my ear to buy the 60D.
