It's a great camera, and it'll serve you well. Post some pics with it when you get it! Put the camera through its paces

I played with a 60D again at Best Buy some time ago, still dont understand that push-lock shooting mode wheel -- waste of time and such a poor decision for anyone interested in shooting off of AUTO.

Hell yeah! I'm gonna punish it tomorrow by visiting a abandon house nearby, bloody dark inside, lightrays through the roof, that sensor won't know what hit it! Or actually I hope it does!

Hmm, right, what do you mean with off of auto? Shooting mode?

It will be different from my rebel, but I'll probably get used to it after a few days or so.

Gods, nevermind.. Get it now. I think I'll like it because I shoot 95% in av mode.

I can see the merit in it. I've accidentally bumped my mode dial from Manual to A-Dep several times already. Seeing as how I spend all my time in M anyways, it'd be a nice option to have on my 50D.

It would be more acceptable if it was a "one push to lock, another to unlock" style, if you know what i'm trying to say. That way, you can lock it if you want, or leave it be if you don't. That, truly, would please everybody.

I came from less of an upgrade than that -- 500D -> 60D -- and I wouldn't go back.

I didn't have the chance to get used to the ergonomics of the prior generation xxD cameras, but I almost always shoot with a grip anyway (and by the way, the Meike grip can be had for ~$45 on eBay brand new and works excellently -- and ships from within the US!) and I've just gotten used to it. It just feels good.

I've had it for just about a month now (rebates ended the 19th/20th of March, got it a couple of days later) and I just cracked 1000 clicks today (snapped ~300+ shots at today's Red Sox game) and kept over 230+ initially, which is ridiculously rare for me. I had a handful of people ask me to email them some pics -- I'm thinking I'll link them to my smugmug page of straight out of the camera auto-processed ones, and then work on some real keepers over the next couple of weeks.

Nope, that's essentially the same as the 60D's system:

Quote:
Once modified, users must first press and hold down the central lock-release button in order to turn the Mode Dial. The modification is intended to prevent the Mode Dial from accidentally moving, once set to a particular exposure mode by the user.
What it should be is a button that has a lock that can be disengaged with one push, and re-engaged with another.

I don't know if I'll get a grip, perhaps if I'll focus more on doing couple session and holding my camera in portrait position it would be comfy to have that extra shutter button. I've seen a few third-party grips already that are 1/4th of the price of the original one, it's ridiculesly expensive.

230! That's a lot indeed, very nice to hear. Do share some with us, I'm curious.
