oh easy for me. Money! 70D !
I personally thinkg the 7D II will be a crop 1DX (=$2100)

For some reason the Canon 7D cost more for the body only than the 70D. I think that's so weird..

Hi guys, I'm new to my 60D and I'm stumped by the rc 6 IR remote. I can get it to fire with a 2 sec or 10 sec delay but I can't figure out how to make it shoot "now". Is that at all possible? I'm trying to capture wildlife in lower light conditions and my old hands are not as steady as they once were! So up goes the tripod.

I think you'd have to have a wired remote trigger to do it on demand. Someone else may chime in and correct me if I'm wrong.

BTW...Welcome to the club!

Welcome to 60D Threads
Yes you can use RC-6 to fire immediately or on delay. Refer to page 126 of the manual.
If you haven't got a manual, you should download one in PDF online.

Just remember though that to use RC-6, you have to be in front of the camera to make it fire as the receiver is on the front of the camera.

If you want to use remote firing on a regular basis for wildlife etc., I highly recommend a pair of Yongnuo RF-603C Radio triggers for use of remote triggering of Camera or Flash. They work up to 100m in the open and through brick walls etc. Cost you about $35 - 40 a pair.. :)

I have a stupid question...please don't laugh. ;)

When I shoot with a lens wide open and have razor thin dof I am having trouble with the focus when recomposing. How do I focus on an eye and recompose without then shifting the eye to an oof part of the dof? Does that even make any sense? lol

They say the only stupid question is the one that you DON'T ask.

Maybe I should leave the response to your question to a Pro....

Although I only use Back Button Focusing if I was seriously wanting to achieve sharp focus in the scenario that you state, I would think that was a case for using a selected AF point. i.e. Compose your image and choose a focus point nearest the eye, select it and make sure it is right on the eye when you take the shot. That would be my answer ... :o

I use BBF but usually have the focus point set to center. Perhaps I have to get good at changing that on the fly. Thanks for the response. I am hoping others chime in, too.

I've been successful two ways - only useful for portraits and stationary subjects.

1. Using a different AF point nearest to where I want to focus.

2. Center point, focus and recompose, but keeping the front element on the same plane so moving my entire body rather than just my head (of that makes sense).

Brenda, Focus + re-compose with razor thin aperture = oof everytime. How about shoot a little wider then crop during processing instead of re-compose.

Brenda as the above post says, that's what I do use the focus point closest to the eye. When your using really thin dof you don't have a lot of choice as moving the camera to recompose can throw the focus off easily.
Also lots of practice and you will soon get the hang of it.
