Hey 60D shooters. Is there a wireless shutter release that will also do the half-click autofocus? None of the ones on Amazon that I'm looking at will specify that feature.

Thanks!

Here's a selfie for the heck of it:

I have the canon original rs-60 e3, got it for my 1000d, it's listed in the manual for the 60d so it's the same one. It has the same half press to autofocus as the camera. it also has a lock to leave the shutter open for long exposures I think.

I use the YN 603's. They are about $35 for a pair and works really,really well.

I remember you now! You made a thread about that strobe. Looks like you're getting amazing results with it. I'll be buying that as my next purchase. =)

These are just altered in dpp, it was a good clear night last night but it looked nothing like these shots. I think the further north you go, you have more chance of seeing the northern lights. places like iceland, scandanavia, even the far north of scotland.

Hi, relatively new 60D owner here, wondering what people set as max ISO usually. I usually leave ISO in auto and shoot manual or aperture priority. Was using 3200 as the max but have dropped it back to 1600 and it looks better.

Lots to learn and I look forward to contributing some pics very soon.

I have mine at 1600, but I only use AutoISO when I would normally use a flash and that's not practical. I use the AutoISO as a fill flash basically.

Hello Jon, I loaded the raw file into dpp, set landscape mode as this enhances blues and greens. I also set tungsten white balance, I remember reading online this was a tip for sunsets, using tungsten wb can give you a nice effect. Hope that helps. :)

Excellent....that helps a lot!

It sure made the photo look great!

Thanks,

Jon...
