Plastic isn't tough? 60D does a metal show
Apr 2, 2012

I've been reading this site for a few years now and it always amuses me when someone uses the 60D's build quality as a negative. Mine survived the front lines of Converge last night, a hardcore metal band with one of the most insane crowds I've ever seen, and I go to metal shows pretty frequently. This included being kicked, stepped on, bumped into the stage multiple times, at least two direct beer spills (weather sealing?) and didn't miss a beat. The only problem I had was my flash overheating after about 5 hours of use.

Anyway, I don't post here much, but I'd like to get some feedback on these photos. 60D + Tokina 10-17 fisheye + 430EXII off cam + popup when the 430 was overheating. These are mostly shutter drags at 1", F8, ISO100, ETTL. Some were at 1/100 as well. It wasn't really practical to use the viewfinder, so composition isn't great, but I do think I captured the atmosphere decently.
