Reuter’s Ayana Morali Loves The EOS 60D (and uses it for her investigative journalism)

Brooklyn-based Ayana Morali, Senior Producer for Reuters Investigative and Special Programming Unit, “was asked to do a piece on a big issue in New York City that was all over the news outlets – stop & frisk – I realized no one had really gone into the neighborhoods and spoken to the citizens who were affected by this policy“. She took a EOS 60D with the mighty EF 50mm f/1.8 for her (video) assignment. Verdict: Good tool for the job, and she loves the 60D. I was surprised that she chose the 50mm. It’s a “cheap” lens, which means lots of plastics, light weight and yet a very good performance. I own this lens and have used it on various bodies. It costs around $90 and it is a must have for every Canon DSLR shooter. You get f/1.8 on a $90 lens. And, hey!, I like that professionals are using this gear for their job.

Until September 1st the EOS 60D can be bought with a $100 rebate (click here) at B&H. The rebate applies to body only and to various kits. Adorama is also offering the rebates (also until 9/1), click here to see all bundles. They also have a refurbished 60D for $799.95 (click here).

I also found a short video on Youtube that was made using the same gear (60D + 50 f/1.8).
