Trouble with the Canon 60D
But! I have got some with my Canon 60D which is my personal camera and which i use to take personal shots and to experiment with.
So, according to this video, the 60D should perform best on ISO 160.
So, did that. Put it on ISO 160. F22, shutter speed of 30 seconds. Placed it on a tripod. Got it outside, focused in. And shot it.
This is the result. It isnt satisfying me AT ALL. There is a lot of noise in it (which bothers me, every single shot) and it doesnt look sharp to me.
Yes! I shot it with a multizoom lens, Just to get back to the basics.
What in earth am i doing wrong (as this is not what i have learned photography for, this is something new to me.. )

At f22 your sensor is probably suffering from the effects of diffraction. You will notice this a lot more on the 60d's aps-c sensor than your 5d mkiii because the physical pixel size on your sensor is smaller.
Have a read of this:
As for the noise, I'm not sure that diffraction causes any or not but I've had problems with Canon sensors in the past and I'm now shooting Nikon.
Hope I've helped anyway.
