Look at that big grey cloud creeping up on us, friends! Unfortunately it caught us and we both got very wet!
It's lucky I had my posh green coat on isn't it!
Dad: I've had a few folks asking what I think of the 60D compared to the 40D... Well, things I like are the lighter weight and the extra
8 megapixels - if you look in our Autumn gallery at the leaf pictures added today, I think you'll agree that the extra megapixels have
resulted in some very nice extra detail on the leaf veins etc. This camera also does great colour, even in overcast conditions. I can see
this being a wonderful tool for plant/macro photography. And high iso performance is very, very impressive compared to the 40D
- with this camera I would use iso 1600 without hesitation, and even the iso 12800 shot I mistakenly took the other night wasn't
too bad. On the down-side so far... you can't get away with using slower shutter speeds handheld; I can handhold the 40D and
get useable shots at 1/50sec but with this camera they turn out blurred. Also, as you can see from today's Pooch photo, highlights
are quite easy to blow out, with I'd say less room for manoeuvre for recovering them in Photoshop than with the 40D. The
dynamic range is probably the only thing which has disappointed me so far, but hopefully I'll find ways to get round it as I get
used to the camera. Hope that helps those who asked. :-)
