Cold? This is around £100 cheaper than the next est price you can get it for, heat added. Can't be cold, can it?
#2
Sometimes I dont understand people... Really it's about 100 less than the best deal on amazon... Tell me why its cold???? Found that deal when I was looking for 550D, which cost around 500, seriously considering to buy 60D now. Why its cold????

You probably won't see any real difference in the image quality between the 550D and the 60D. The most significant difference to my mind is that the 550D is geared at keen/advanced amateurs, whereas the 60D is a semi professional model and made to withstand much rougher treatment, as well as being quite a bit bigger. The best thing would be to get your son to try out the feel of both models in somewhere like Currys and see which he is happiest with, but this is not too easy if it's a surprise.

60D also has a slight performance advantage (faster continuous shooting) but there's not that much in it.

Don't forget that the 60D has manual audio levels and doesn't have the stupid agc audio thats built into the 550D or 7D. If you want to use a DSLR for filming/video work save the extra and get the 60D as canon have added the tilt screen and manual audio levels for video users. These two must have features are not in the 550D or the more expensive 7D. Picture quality on the 550D, 60D and 7D are all the same as they all use the Divic4 processor and have a 1.6 crop factor.

I recently sold my 550D and got a 60D and I'm not regretting it one bit!!!

DigitalRev is a foreign import company, but a good one! This is a good price for this camera. It was released in August in the UK for £1099 and was a prime example of something selling in the UK for £1099 and in the US for $1099 and has been dropping weekly. It is now at the right price compared to the rest of the world. I paid £50 less than this from a foreign seller on a popular auction site with 1000's of feedback and UK based stock, so no import charges! That's how DigitalRev operate sometimes, they pay the import charges to give the buyer more confidence!

The 60D camera was also featured on the Gadget Show the other week and even they were amazed at how well it held up against a £20,000 RED film camera!

but, if your serious about using a DSLR for video work, start by looking at this webpage...

Thank you, I was thinking that I would just stick to the 550d but after looking at those links and also the auction site (I never would have considered buying from there!) I think I could buy this for not much more than a 550d body and lens package and it will last so much longer in terms of what he wants to develop with it.

If I do buy the body only, there really isn't much left for a lens, etc. do you have anything to recommend? (I have heard of the 50mm at £80, however, don't really know what that could be used for).

Thank you.

cold from me. It's only £630 if you buy the same camera, in the UK from digitalrev (or a selection of other HK importers) on ebay.

The Canon 18-55mm IS can be picked up dirt cheap used and is very good value, it'll get you going and when you've lived with it for a few months you'll have a better idea in which direction you want to upgrade.

The 50mm 1.8 is very sharp and makes a nice portrait lens on a crop sensor camera like the 60D. But you wouldn't want it as your only lens most likely.

Is digitalrev a true Uk company? I'm thinking abo buing Canon 60d and canon 17-55 F2.8 lens + canon speedlite 580FX flashgun.
It's a lot of money so I prefere to make sure that there are no hidden charges.
Anybody had any expriences with digital rev or PhotoDirect on Ebay?
Many thanks

I have gone ahead and ordered the body and 18-55mm lens. Is there anything else I would need to buy; lens hood, filters, etc? It all looks very complicated to me!

Thank you.

You can go on buying and buying tones of extras to pimp out your HDSLR Camera! A video tripod would be a great start.

Firstly the essentials. I'd get a couple of fast 32GB SDHC cards, these are pretty good...
TranscendSDHC32GB
Next get a UV filter, they're quite cheap, but you don't want to mark the glass of the lens, many different makes out there, either get a cheap 58mm UV filter from http://www.7dayshop.com, or even better, this should be good enough for your lens...
CanonUVFilter

Now the more expensive gear...

I mostly use a Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 3x. These are great for filming outdoors in bright sunlight but they are expensive (again, look on a popular auction site!) Looking through one of these gives you the impression that your filming through a 50ft cinema screen - I'm not kidding!!!

Next, is in camera audio important? I'd say for filming music videos - No! but for filming presenter to camera or shot reverse shot conversation it is VERY important. The audio built into the camera is quite good with very low hiss (definitely better than the 550D agc audio), but its not directional. For any professional style filming you need a separate mic, most people get a Rode directional video condenser mic. I've got a few Senheiser directional mics and wireless kits for boom poles which work well for me, but is probably overkill for your needs. From there a PHANTOM POWERED audio adapter is whats needed next, this removes any minor hiss sound you get when recording on an external mic in the Canon 60D, the key is make sure its phantom powered! I use a JuicedLink DT454 with XLR outputs, but these are quite expensive, maybe get a cheaper phantom powered 3.5mm mic box from a popular auction site for £15.00 as a start.

Lenses, there's tons out there! The 18-55 is a great start (effectively 28-88 on the 60D with its crop sensor). If it becomes more than a hobby, look at prime lenses instead of zoom lenses! But, that's a long way off for your needs!

It basically all depends on what he intends to film??? but still your Canon 60D and lens choice is a great start!
