you want to use either dpp that came with the camera on the cd canon provides you, or use adobe lightroom. lightroom lets you do things without converting the file out of the raw format, by keeping a sidecar with a list of what you did to the image, and applies it when you go to output to jpg, or print...

I may be wrong, but that appears to be what DPP is doing too. I can always return to "shot settings" to undo all my changes, and it keeps it in raw. I'm new to this RAW stuff, but it doesn't appear to be sealing my changes into the raw.

I was out in the country a few days ago and took a couple "open spaces" shots here in Southern Taiwan.

I've had the 550D for a while and hardly ever shoot video so I wonder...... does the 550D auto-focus while video recording? Something I haven't even notice or remember reading about.

It does but via contrast measurement, not phase detection so expect a lot of focus hunting, possibly lens motor noise in video (depending on lens) and general disappointment ;] But the quality is superb if you can work with/around the focusing limitations.

mine seems to autofocus fine, if I have enough light :) 50mm 1.8 + video makes for some amazing HD video if you set the lens to be wide open.

EnriGonz, I bought my T2i specifically for shooting video. if your worried about the noise the mic picks up during shooting I wouldn't recommend using the auto-focus. My experience is that even the slightest manual adjustment to focus will be picked up by the onboard mic (just one of the reasons I bought a Rode videomic).

However if yoo don't care about the sound and you'll be adding your own soundtrack to what your shoot then no worries. I still recommend the Rode either way because once yoo start shooting with one you'll never want to use the onbaord mic again...I gaurantee it.

Anyhoo here are some previews for my web series Haywire. Check 'em out and let me know what you all think.

Thanks.

Speaking of the Canon 200DG bag.. Got a silly question for you guys.

What's the best orientation for your camera to sit in the bag? Since I bought the 15-85USM lens (my almost full time walk around lens, but a lot bigger and heavier than my kit lens), I've been having trouble configuring my bag to properly store the camera because I prefer to leave my lens on the camera when I place it into the bag (I try not to take the lens on and off the camera as much as I can).

So right now, I have made a wider spot for the camera to sit with the LCD facing the bottom of the bag, and the lens facing up. Is there any down side to that? I'm usually very careful in handling the bag when the camera is in there, and always set them down very slowly.

It's an easier choice when you have a long lens on the camera, it will really only go in one way :)

since I mainly shoot with long lenses, camera LCD facing the top of the back, lens down the center, double up the padding on the bottom.

I don't know if I would be comfortable sticking the body at the bottom of the bag.

A little confused, I don't mind the motor noise from the lens moving, I do remember the 550D having "face" detection for video recording as an option. What I don't understand is how this methods of auto-focusing are any different than the ones Sony is using on their new DSLRs or even Micro 4:3 cameras, the same thing with the new Nikon 3100 which they claim it does Auto Focus while video recording. Just wondering if these companies are making a big deal over a new feature over their new cameras because no one else is doing it or is this something the 550D can do already?

i am new to the dslr scene.
i have a t2i and have been reading the manual that came with it.
there is so many settings and adjustments to it.
are all theese realy being used?
would useing theese different settings make the picture that much better than just useing the auto mode?
seems like you would have to be a Philidelphia Lawyer to figure out how to use all theese different settings.
thx D
