The Canon 60D was a great camera when it was announced back in 2010, but of course, like any other camera that's almost a decade old, it's been far outpaced by the technology that has come out since its release. And yet, this filmmaker has stuck with it despite all that.
Coming to you from Darious Britt, this video features him discussing why he still relies on his Canon 60D to this day, even after eight years with it. I'm a fan of Britt for his very pragmatic approach, and that's on full display here. For him, the 60D is a camera he knows on a deep, intuitive level, and he values that because it means the camera stays out of his way on a shoot because he has to devote minimal mental energy to operating it. In turn, this allows him to focus on things like storytelling and creating a compelling visual narrative for his viewer. It's only now after nearly a decade that Britt is semi-retiring the camera. It's a great and inspiring reminder that you can probably get a lot more mileage out of the gear you have than you might think and to not obsess over the latest upgrades. Check out the video above for Britt's full thoughts.
