I don't get it. What is funny about the VeitNam war and how does this video of the lady and the dog have to do with holding your camera straight?

I changed out the focus screen on my 60D to the one with the faint grid lines. The electronic level isn't very practical when you are not shooting on a tripod. ;)

LOL! Being QA, you'd have found a can of sardines cooking in your case after that one :p

Cool! Didn't know other game industry guys were on here. Yeah. Never mess with QA. They're hardcore thugs. ;) they can hold up builds and make you suffer greatly. Haha.

I once thought someone put dog crap in my case. Turned out my boss had some foot fungus that smelled like a dumpster full of fecal matter. Literally. At least my photos remained level. that's the moral of my story.

Snydremark wrote in post #14885226 (external link)
Only when we have to :)

I have a bit of a list to most of my non-tripod photos; but the grid in the VF helps.

:D cheers :)

You certainly get a lot of leeway with tomfoolery when you work overnight a few times with a group of people.

On a more serious note - are we possibly looking at a perspective problem caused by a wider angle lens shot level, but at an angle?

Well, that was my first thought.

My second is, the OP hasn't been back in a while. I wonder if he went to the store for more popcorn.

Being serious for a moment, if the camera is taking crooked pictures, counteract the crookedness by tilting the camera in the opposite direction slightly.

To the op, you have a nice looking website, nice shots, maybe time to ditch the t1i.

I haven't had a chance to test it, because I've been editing so many pictures as of late, but I will be weeks end. Thanks! And I will hopefully be able to purchase a Canon Mark something by Christmas.

JRHpho wrote in post #14873173 (external link)
The auto rotate feature is frozen :)

Not familiar with the T1 or the lens, does T1 do the perspective control ? If so did you switch it off without knowing ?

I'll have to look into that.

Because some newer models have built in levels as one of the display options.

I had a T1i - no level in it. My 60D does have one though.

Man, the older I get, the crookeder my images get--has something to do with the inner ear.


Canons to the left, Canons to the right,
We hold our L glass toward the light,
Digitizing in a snap reflective glory
That will forever tell our imaged story.
