Yes it is. It took at least three shots. One normal, without the iPhone. A second, iPhone in the face, turned off. Than I opened photoshop, cropped the eyes part from the first picture. Save that to the iPhone. Than, third picture with the iPhone turned on, in front of the face.

The thing is, getting it aligned was quite hard. "Quite" as in really hard ;)

Just purchased a 60D. Exchanged my T2i which I had for a few weeks and I couldn't resist and upgraded to the 60D.

I upgraded for the better body, it had a better build quality and felt more rugged in my hands, the LCD Screen for picture settings on the top of the camera is awesome, it drove me nuts that T2i didn't have that... it's way faster having that LCD screen for setting up your shots, the 60D has better AF Focusing, the faster FPS, better battery life, a better kit lens in the 18-135mm EF-S as a walk around lens, the 18-55mm was too limited to me as a walk around lens and I also love the articulating screen for video shooting. A few other things as well.... I just found the options better than the T2i overall.

Even though they both have the same quality in picture and video taking, the kit lens, the build and better options make it a very worthy upgrade for me!

Love it! The 60D is an awesome camera for the moeny, IMO ;)

Happy Shooting!

Nope. The picture you see now is one shot. No photoshop magic at all. I took one picture of him without the iPhone, to get the eyes picture. Cropped it than saved it to the iPhone.

The second picture was not required, but very helpful. It was him with the iphone turned off. I than opened Photoshop, took the first picture and paste it at layer 1. Took, the second and paste it at layer 2, 50% oppacity. This way, I could see the part I needed to crop for the iPhone's screen.

Voila, secrets revealed ;)

Thought I would join the 21st Century, so bought myself a Canon 60D.
The idea of the swivelling LCD monitor really appealed to me
This was so I could take some low angled shots and not damage my back
Today I charged the battery, put in the memory card, switched on & NOTHING on monitorvmad
You can imagine my expletives

Press the Menu button, or the Live View button. The LCD isn't supposed to be on when you first turn the camera on.

Thanks ejacso1
I followed the quick start guide, but not able to focus using the monitor as nothing showing.
The menu button will allow me to see the settings.
The Live View button doesn't do anything

With monitor you mean LCD screen right?

And what happens when you turn the dial to Movie mode and open the LCD screen?

on the back of the camera - press the "Info" button - one of the displays (there are 3) shows your current settings.

when you look through the viewfinder - and press the shutter half-way - do you see various settings displayed?

If you want your LCD to display what your lens is pointing at - click the upper back button which has a camera icon - this will activate Live View.
