An Old Crop Sensor Body Comes Back

I bought a refurbished Canon EOS 60D back in the Spring of 2013.  My daughter has had the camera along with some EF-S lenses since 2014. The camera has now come back, no match, apparently, for an iPhone, and I decided to play with it for a while before I decide whether to sell it or not.

Lenses with the camera are the EF-S 24mm f/2.8 pancake, the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 macro and the 18-55mm kit lens. The 24mm pancake lens was not released yet when I previously had the camera so I wanted to try that out first.

The 60D, like my 7D, will only bracket three files, not the five I usually bracket with my 5D Mark III. To compensate, I generally bracket 1 1/2 EV darker and lighter rather than a single EV.

Exposure information in the caption is for the normally exposed file.

A Variety Over the Past Week

I've been out and about a lot the past week with my 5D Mark III and various lenses. I'm getting used to having fewer lenses and learning the best way to use the ones I have.

Here are some photos using my 40mm pancake lens, 24-105mm zoom and 70-300mm zoom.

Tugboat Roundup Bonus

I stopped in at the parking lot at the bottom of Lock 2 to check out what might be remaining of the Tugboat Roundup and was fortunate to catch the Cheyenne, 2015 tugboat of the year (I have a hat, which I was actually wearing), leaving the harbor and, surprisingly, heading up through lock E2 rather than down the Hudson.

Initially, I had the 70-300mm DO on my 5DIII then changed to the 24-105mm when the Cheyenne headed into the lock. So, the first shots are with the DO zoom and the rest with the L zoom.

Notice that they couldn't decide whether to leave the wheelhouse up or down.
