Canon has the 60D refurb on sale again and the price is such that it's calling my name. For those who own this camera, what do you think about it for $460 USD?
My usage would be for children's sports and general vacation type usage. I'm not shooting super models here.
Just curious! A little bit of fun (but honest answers please!)
Hey have you got ahold of that person selling that 5d? I've been watching that ad and it hasn't had any contact info on it. I've also saw an ad for a 5d mark II for 900$. Oh and hello from another Minnesotan!
Where are you in MN? This guys has been trying to sell it for a while, odd the contact information has disappeared - here's the last email from him @ firstname.lastname@example.org:
"it works perfectly. I have compared it to my other 5d and cannot tell a difference in image quality at all, same for either of my 50d's, or my 1ds. I have a bit of gear, as you can see, so I don't really need to sell this. I thought someone who might want full frame quality might be interested."
Yeah I saw the Mark II out in Washington, WI for $900 (includes the box too) - crazy eh?
See my work, most recent ones shot on 5Dc, older work shot on 7D:
Will you Americans please stop pointing out how cheap camera gear is in your country?
Do beware as it seems very cheap. Make sure you don't roll up to a project and get deprived of your $250 and a vital organ. Usual common sense rules apply, caveat emptor and all that.
At $250 you're crazy for passing it up. They typically go for $500-700 nowadays. At the least you could make some money in a flip if it is still in good, working condition.
I have 7d as main body and got a 5d for landscapes and backup body. Nothing wrong with it. If you have full frame lenses its a good thing to have if you have mainly EF-S crop lenses then you are limited in its use.
For that money its worth a gamble.
5D classic image is good enough ONLY IF you hit and exact exposure. However, when it is necessary to lift the shadows in post-processing, noise appears very ugly. I'm not talking about unusual things. If you lift the shadows only 1 point, already sees colored noise horrendous. This was a good camera when it was released, but the noise and autofocus faltering are no match for the new 70D.
12MP is very limiting. If I had to buy a 12MP body I would rather try a D700, but maybe that's just me.
