Heh...He thought so, until I walked away from him on a 60 roll a few weeks ago. :D

He'd crush me from a dig though. Unless I had my drag setup on...Then it might be close.

thanks a lot everyone!

i believe i shot this with the 85L at f3.5 - i wish i had a stronger background light to shoot at a higher fstop though but speedlights can only go so high D=

Did you have to stand quite far away from the subject with your 85? Its a bit long on the 60D, isn't it?

Screen Protector for the 60D: For those of you who have purchased the Vellow Glass or similar LCD screen protectors are you able to turn the LCD around and close it properly since there is a small thickness to the Vello glass?

Yes, you won't be able to close it, it is too thick. It sticks out just a few millimeters, but won't securely snap back into the body. I personally just leave my LCD screen exposed. I don't really have the need for a swivel screen.

Quick question for the 60D and Sigma lenses.....I bought a 2X tele-converter that Sigma says will work with the 70-200 DG and 105 Macro DG.......will it work with the 12-24 DG and 24-70 DG Sigma lenses, or wil it possibly harm them? TIA.

Ive got a question as well... with the Xti, I always had trouble focusing on something at night to do a long exposure.. Haven't tried it with the 60D, but I don't imagine it is much easier. Are there any good little "tricks" to getting proper focus at night? I will be getting a tablet hopefully tomorrow and will try that with the big screen, but i don't know if that will really help much or not for the focusing issue.

Also, can you adjust color temp on the 60D itself? I have seen that you can do it with the android dslr controller app, but I've never seen that adjustment on the camera.

I think it will harm the glass; I remember reading somewhere you aren't supposed to use 2x tele's on the lower range lenses. I know for sure not to use it on anything other than my 70-200 and up. I would play it safe and not put them together.

I normally focus on something that's not completely black and recompose but a tripod with a very low shutter speed helps the best. I mean if you're doing handheld try bringing a flash as well. Most lenses will hunt in low light, it's pretty common ...what glass will you be trying out? Get a 1.4 prime or something to help out the darkness scenes.

For the color temperatures, are you talking about the White Balance ? Yes you can change it on the live view screen, it's the giant AWB letters LOL

I use live view and manual focus, zooming in on the part you want focus on with the magnifying glass on the top right.

No, I am talking about something separate from White Balance. You can watch the whole video if you wish, but at 1:50, he shows that you can change the WB, then next option is for the color temp. It is completely separate. I already knew about AWB, I'm not THAT much of a noob haha :P
