those are awesome shots! I take it you put your flash pointing up behind the tree?

Come to think of it, on my manual film cameras, in manual mode, what I did for exposure compensation was just to adjust the ISO one stop up or down. It wouldn't work because the medium changes as soon as you change the button. But what would work is simply under or over exposing the scene by a stop. Sure you get a flashing number, but you get the right exposure.

The key point of wanting EC in M mode for me - and I believe Rivest would agree - is that when using "Auto ISO" - shots are too often underexposed - so on our 'firmware update' wish list is either: 1) correct Auto ISO to expose correctly, or 2) give us EC in M mode.

Rivest is perhaps the only other person (I have seen) to agree that Auto ISO (60D) too often underexposes.

Nevertheless, if the fix is adding fill light (in Lr3) or in any case increasing brightness - so be it - because for my typical type of shooting - Auto ISO is Very Convenient.

Thanks. IT is actually a combination of flash and continuous lighting.

My custom lighting setup is designed to do both.

I actually was just in a parking lot, so I could alter my gear with tools in my truck all night. Forgot the remote timer at home, derp! Had to use 10 second timer and was limited to 30 sec exposure. Still kicking myself in the ass for that one...

Didn't get a chance to get any better shots with more setup time, as I found some major flaws that need to be worked out.

Another shot taken on the way home that night.

Judging by what I already see im sure you'll have some great work to show us when you have more setup time.

Thanks again. I am very stoked about the possibilities of my new gear setup.

I wasn't expecting the test shots to be anything worth showing. Just collecting data.

I need a new tripod ASAP! I have been using a Walmart cheapo for years because it just works for shot like this. Last night, I got so pissed off at the thing because one of the legs would not lock, I broke it off trying to get it to stick. Had to tape it together for the last shot.

Glad it finally pushed me to get a real tripod, which I am going to purchase in a couple of hours. :cool: :)

There are a lot of people that don't understand the reason for exposure compensation in manual mode until they encounter a need for it. One reason why Nikon is trumping canon. Very easy to implement that is for sure!

When I look at it, it's just a matter of balancing what you get for your money between the two companies. Nikon trumpets having one stop more sensitive sensors, but most of their cameras have noise issues at iso 100. I actually shoot a lot more at iso 100 than in extremes of darkness. To top it off, Sony makes Nikon's high end sensors, and this can't be good long term.

Canon seems to have taken the lead in terms of resolution, and will solidify that this year if they release a new 5D and 7D -according to their schedule. Sure, the Sony chips are currently the highest full frame resolution (24 MP), but they came out after Canon's.

This isn't a high end camera we bought. We can't expect it to have all of the features of the higher end models.

I like Canon for its' vertical integration. I think in this decade we will see a shakeup. My predictions: in ten years, Canon will be in first, followed by Sony in second and Samsung in third. Nikon will either be taken over by Sony (complicated because the Minolta platform is entirely different from Nikon) or in fourth.

Dont get a RocketFish! The adjustment screw stripped in the first 3 hours of using it. I had to re-tap the thing and now I have to use a socket wrench to adjust it :mad:

I just got a Manfrotto 190xprob legs and Giottos mh 1302 ball head.

This tripod's extension tube can be set horizontal for putting the tripod flush with the ground.

Really nice and didn't cost more than $300.

I use Manfrotto 190XB, too. It's got a Manfrotto ball with a quick grip, and I like it. Worth the extra money when you use something a lot. But don't get those cheapo $130 Manfrottos -they shouldn't even produce them because they give the company a bad name. The plastic on them fatigues and cracks after a little use.

I think Exposure Comp in M mode is considered by Canon to be a 'high end' feature. On the 1D's I think.

easy to implement someone say? Fer Sher!

Just for fun I checked my G12 and it will allow Exposure Comp in full M mode.

So it makes no sence to not include it on the 60D.

I suspect it is the same card Rivest is using.

It's the one I have and it works well.
