Wow, just after posting the above message I was going thru my email and found this there (I had about 20 emails to go thru)

Hello Charles,

Thank you for contacting ZAGG, where we are Zealous About Great Gadgets! My name is Eric R. and I appreciate the opportunity to assist you.

I'm sorry to hear that the invisibleSHIELD for your Canon EOS 60D (Screen) was damaged during shipping. Our goal at ZAGG is to ensure that you are satisfied with our service, and I have put in a request to have your order re-fulfilled. Please expect this to go out in the next 3-5 business days via USPS First Class Mail. Orders shipped using this service can take 3-7 days (not including Sundays or holidays) to be delivered.

Once your order has left our facility we will send you a shipping confirmation email. We recommend adding zagg.com (external link) to your address book to help avoid spam filters.

As soon as the new invisibleSHIELD arrives, please ship the damaged shield back to us at the following address:
ZAGG Inc.
C/O Order #xxxxxxxxxx
3855 S. 500 W. Suite C
Salt Lake City, UT 84115

In my email to them I NEVER said the shield was damaged in shipping. This is what I wrote to them:

I ordered and received my Invisible Shield for my Canon 60D. I read your instructions plus I watched your installation video to be sure I did everything correctly. I washed my hands, I sprayed my finger tips and I sprayed both sides of the shield as instructed. During the installation one of my fingers did stick slightly to the shield and now I have a 'mark' in the shield which I am not happy with at all. Is there a way to safely and completely remove the shield from my LCD screen without damaging the screen, or is the shield now a permanent fixture and I have to live with this mark?

In a way that is nice of them doing that, but it is not what I wanted. I only want to remove thier shield so I can either leave it like naked or put something else on it. The directions were at the bottom of the email on how to remove the shield so I quickly replied asking them to cancel the order. I am not planning on using their product as I was not happy with it.

The low light capabilities of the D60 are going to be a lot of fun! I'd try to shoot scenes like this with my G5 but usually ended up using a tripod. But even then with a long exposure or ISO400 or higher things got pretty noisy.

And I'm noticing that most of the pictures posted here don't have any EXIF data, or at least iExif won't open it in IE. I know a lot of the time your software strips this information, or is there a specific reason for not showing the EXIF data?

Exif is intact, I can see it. By the way, you should use Firefox or Chrome ;)

stills on the random occasion when i actually use liveview

its quite handy especially on my tripod saves me that 3 seconds in post.

i find it hard for me to shoot video - cant justify the hours of editting and i'll never get the same result on film than i do in picture!

Most of the time I refrain from comment if a photo does not show Exif.

Yeah, I know my pics have EXIF intact. I just figured that most of the other shots posted here would too.

IE8 seems to work well for me. Since they added tabbed browsing I seldom use Firefox. I've got Chrome on a second computer and I always try it if I need to go online. But if I'm on it very long I usually find myself switching back to IE. Chrome just looks too, I don't know, "Googly" or something. Guess it's mostly just a matter of what you're used to. :lol:

i second to David. You're already in the best place for 60D.
Can you tell us the problems of your shots? You can also post it here to better address the issue.

questionmarc wrote in post #14496897 (external link)
no need for the manual - by losers do you mean spotty focus - bad lighting or bad composition?
for just pure picture taking all you need to know is iso shutter aperture manual autofocus points reading the histogram and thats about it!

OK, you got it!

I'll have to get back to you on histogram. I shot all these through the viewfinder, which is how I was used to it way back when I owned an AE-1 some 20 years ago! Heck, I'm still getting used to the fact you can even change ISO from picture to picture, rather than finishing the whole roll of film first!

I customized one or two things in the initial camera setup, but pretty much shot with the settings as they came out of the box. I used Aperture mode, usually f/2.0 or 2.2 for lower-light. Lens was the 50mm 1.8 II.

Below are some examples of what I was up against. First sets the stage. Dark background. Bass player had a red stage light on him, and he's wearing a red shirt too! Lovely. The young lady had two white lights shining down on her, and the guitarist had a yellow light on him. There was also outside light coming in from a large window on the right side of the stage. I have many shots that came out very similar to this one:

IMAGE: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8168/7288983366_e60b06a802_b.jpg
IMAGE LINK: http://www.flickr.com …/44279927@N07/7​288983366/  (external link)
IMG_0263 (external link) by RichPadula (external link), on Flickr

In looking at this first picture after the fact, it looks like (a) it focused on the background,(b) there is also some motion blur in the girl's hand, and (c) she is very overexposed, as are the guitarist's elbow and guitar face - there's very little detail in the wood grain.

(a) I can fix by aiming better. Of course, two weeks later I can't remember which of the red dots fired the focus. However, I thought I had it programmed to center point all the time. This is where the manual comes in, too, as my focus mode was one-shot. I didn't even know about auto/servo modes.

(b) I also noticed all of these shots were either 1/60 or 1/80 shutter speed. Something faster would've prevented motion blur. Is this an artifact of Av mode? It's almost as if it'll drive down to the lowest "allowable" shutter speed before bumping up the ISO. So, if I want a faster shutter speed, my option is manual mode? The last I remember of my AE-1 was that I loved Shutter Priority, the faster the better!

(c) Metering seemed toughest for me. Default, per the manual again, was evaluative metering (the dot with the circle around it). Thinking that was too bright, I did shoot a couple with spot metering (just the dot), but then I got incredibly dark shots like this (although the girl was exposed much better):

IMAGE: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7237/7288981650_36a807a0e7_c.jpg
IMAGE LINK: http://www.flickr.com …/44279927@N07/7​288981650/  (external link)
IMG_0223 (external link) by RichPadula (external link), on Flickr

However, even though those came out quite dark, I found I could pull out a decent amount of detail in playing with the sliders on iPhoto. So this indicates to me that somewhat underexposed is preferable to overexposed. This also teaches me that I have a whole different avenue -- post-processing -- to learn. Last time I did that, it was called "developing." ;)

Any other ideas about how to improve my results this type of setting? I'll probably be going back there again.

Thanks,
Rich

I also keep my exif intact. I like helping people out, if they want to know how I did a certain picture, they can have look at my settings.


I just did a 60D comparison between my 300mm to check the background blur. Camera on tripod, never moved. Lens were on the same spot. Background wasn't too busy, but you can see a noticeable difference.

Affirmative Houston. We read your EXIF loud and clear! :cool:

Impressive shot for 12800! I don't think I've pushed mine past 3000 yet. Old habits die hard,they say. ;)
