My first day with the Canon 60D

I got the Canon 60D in for testing a couple of days ago and finally got around to un-boxing it yesterday. This is just a quick video of some shots from yesterday. No bunnies were harmed in the making of this video.

I am working on a full review of the Canon 60D by comparing it to the Canon T3i/600D (which is very similar). Since I just got the camera I want to spend some time with it before publishing the comparison review.

  • Hello Dave,

    I have a Canon 60D, i´ll be wating for full review. I have a lot of questions about slow motion in Sony Vegas, shooting in 720p 60fsp


  • Dave, keep up the great work, and thanks for sharing your work, can’t wait for your thoughts on the 60d!

  • Just got my 60D, body without the kit lens, and ordered a Tamron 18-50 2.8. So having to wait a few days for this lens I picked up a Canon 50 1.8. What an excellent lens for a great price, perfect for video and stills.

    Thanks for this site Dave, I’m looking forward to exploring your videos and developing my skills with DSLR video.

  • I just upgraded from my T2i to the 60D, and I find the camera to be a real joy. Very quick, exceptional choices for different ambience and the Creative filters are also very nice
