I ordered the one from ZAGG.com called Invisible Shield made for the 60D. I put it on the camera last night. Before I installed it I read the instructions plus there was a video on ZAGG.com showing how to install it which helped. I did everything as explained but one of my fingertips got slightly stuck to the sticky side of the screen protector. I went ahead and installed it, but now I wish I had not as there is a mark in the protector plus the entire screen is not clean looking, kind of a small tiny ripple, wave everywhere.

I have sent ZAGG a note thru customer service asking if there is a safe way to remove the protector and have my LCD screen still look like new, but my gut tells me that will not happen with the glue on the back of the screen protector now attatched to the LCD screen.

If anyone else has any thoughts of using this product STAY AWAY from this type of screen protector. I wish I had because now I am guessing I will have to live with this for a long time. Sending it to Canon to have them put on a new LCD screen because of my stupid move will be costly I am sure.

EDIT: The fact this is a holiday weekend I know I won't hear from ZAGG until Tuesday at the earliest, probably not until Wednesday.

I actually LOVE my invisible shield on my iPod and my android phone. I can safely say that you can cleanly remove the screen protector without a problem. i have done it in the past on 3 devices (to replace the device, not the protector itself) and it doesn't leave any residue. it will all come off cleanly and easily. I had mine on for several months with heat, and lots of use and it didn't leave a single speck of residue.

Thank you, that is good to hear from more than one person.

Hello everybody!

Still getting my 60D squeezed, this is the camera I´ve taken more shots of my life (far more reliable than my 7D that is out for repair for second time this year)

Here my latest...

@BurnUnit: Clay welcome and enjoy your camera! (Hint: The minimum safe speed is 1/(Focal_Length x 1.6)... You will gain some sharpness in your photos (like in No.2 and No. 4). I like the flower photo.

Thanks Makis. I know I'm not hitting the focus as well as I'd like to. I think it's a combination of expecting too much from the IS and having too many choices of focusing options and methods. Sort of wish it had a nice split-image screen in the viewfinder like an old Canon FT.

I'll try to get a few more shots posted up tomorrow.

Hi everyone, I just picked up a 60D w/ a 15-85 and nifty 250. First dSLR so theres a ton to learn... but at least the first thing I did was turn the dial off the green box.

Anyway here are a few

Normally I prefer urban, motorsports, and candid shots but the UPS man delivered right before I was headed out for a drive so landscape it was.

Good start dialing off the green box.

Welcome to the club.

if you want a shortcut on learning exposure. Play with this online camera simulator. May not be accurate but at least you'll get the idea even the control of Depth of Field.

cheers! :)

Hi Guys,

I just bought 2 extra batteries and when I tried them on the camera, it said that it can't communicate with the battery.. And it is always showing that the battery is empty and can't see the battery info from the menu.. Is this normal? Will it still work for shooting even if it is showing its empty? Is there a way to show how many % the battery still has?

hello - what is the brand?

I recall some 3rd party batteries off eBay state that the OEM 60D charger is not compatible with certain china batteries... there is some china charger(s) for those batteries.


was your charger blinking 1, eventually 2, and eventually 3 times to show the batteries were charging?

Just throwing the idea out there...

Oh sorry, its a china one.. No brand.. I charged it with the charger that it came with and first it was red then it gave me the green light.. Lol! But still the same, still a blank battery on the top lcd.. And it said in the box not to charge it with the oem charger..

I bought them to put into the meike grip to be ready when it arrives..

You said it. No name brand + China. Very cheap stuff, for a couple more dollars, you could have had a reputed third party battery that would work. I would stop using them and please DO NOT put them in the original charger. Those batteries aren't chipped and you might kill your charger.

Can you tell me some reputed third party battery brands? I've asked before if it is okay to get china ones but what i didnt know is that they should be branded..

So the ones i have now are not safe to use?
