The CF card door on my D60 sticks. It is nearly impossible to slide open the door to extract the card. I am unable to find the wear issue that is creating the problem. I have resorted to leaving the card in place and connecting the camera to the computer to up load the photos.
Pressing on the door to slide it out and open is where the problem seems to be.

If you mean the SD card door on the 60D - wipe your fingers across your forehead or nose (assuming no makeup, of course), use that oil to lubricated the sides of the door.

disclaimer - I have no idea if this will damage the plastic if used long term, it's simply a solution I applied based upon somebody else' tip for lens hood lubrication, and it's worked for me for 6 months or so.

thanks Rivest :P

shot was taken handheld, manual focus, shot with 100mm L macro with no flash, 1/100 shutter f/8 and iso800

Thanks, so it's definitely me the problem I guess. :(

I like that one, I'd call it ''Gotta pee!'' :p

Just kidding, very nice shot. As other said, love your PP.

I told you I'd shoot on a beach this week-end! We've beat a heat record from 1943 today, what an awesome day. :cool:

Fairly new 60D owner here. Never thought the flip screen would be useful until the other day when I took this "self portrait" with my new helmet. ;)

Metering, for the win! Just remember that in high contrast situations, to switch back to average. For most situations, evaluative is best. Hit up the lighting thread. It's very informative.

thanks for your help.

Playing with still life a little bit today. I really need to get around to a "real" white box and lighting setup, so I can stop using my kitchen counter:

Nice shot! I also like the black material you used for the floor/background - gives a good reflection! What is it?

Hey all!

I'm in a photographic rut. I'm out of subjects for my book, and while I knew finding subjects would be tough, I didn't realize it would be damn near impossible. I drive a bike, so I'm limited to photographing within a few mile radius of where I live (Denton, Tx), and I feel like I've already done it all. I don't even have the motivation to work on photos I'm backed up on, for lack of feeling creative. It's killing me. What do yall do in times like these?


Also, would anyone be willing to walk me through via-PM (since I'll have a lot of questions) the steps to buying filter sets? The flat square ones, I don't know what they're called, I just know I need to switch to them for several advantages over my Vari-ND filter.


Thanks for any help, advice yall can give!

Can't help ya, with the filters. I'm too broke, to deal with it. Trust me, I would if I had the cash lol.

For me, though...it's not about subjects. It's about my brain and my state of mind.

Some days I can't think of **** to shoot. Some days I have ideas.

We are human. It's just the way it works.


I hang on, due to my love of this form of expression. It's the only way I've ever been able to show the world who or what I am...

Also, remember that if shooting M mode, and ETTL, those don't mean a thing...

I tried the manual mode in built-in flash. it looks there's a lot of guess work until you'll become familiar. the in-camera's light meter can't read it. you have to be able to familiarize the chart i guess.

is there any rules to follow regarding aperture-flash power ratio?

i learned something today though. thanks for my curiousity. I learnt the importance of using manual in flash even in the built-in camera flash. thanks guyz. POTN Rocks!
