Well just for the sake of experimenting, and I know this sounds like a radical idea ;), but how about turning off AF and trying to manually focus some shots. Maybe try some with IS turned both off and on. And make sure the diopter setting for the viewfinder is set properly for your eyes. Unless your camera and subject are completely immobilized, maybe close down 1/2 or full stop to give you a bit of a "cushion" in your DOF.

Good thoughts. I will give those a try.

Brenda,

you said you are using BBF. Are you in AI Servo mode? If you are, try letting go of the BBF button once you achieve focus on the eyes and then recompose. Unless you're at a weird angle the DOF shouldn't change much.

I actually had read that and with the first of the 2 rc icons I get 2 sec and with the 2nd I get 10 sec delay.
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I haven't got access to a RC-6 nor have ever used one. I found this article for you which tells you all about it and how to set it.

On the camera, you set the Drive to either Remote selections. Then you set the switch on the Remote to either Immediate or 2 sec delay.

Be aware that working with Fluorescent Lighting can cause random problems with the Infa Red signal/receiver

Hope this helps.

I have a generic rc-6 and it works for me when I toggle the switch on the remote.

Hey all..

Way OT, but if you have any friends you'd like to try to get in touch with "someday", do it.

My best friend growing up and my roommate in college took his own life yesterday. We had drifted a bit apart the last couple of years, and now I won't have a chance to get in touch with him again.

Sorry to hear Keyan..I would give you a hug if I could. That's why I make it a big deal to my friends that when I leave I won't be able to see them anymore and that makes me sad deep down thus the other reason for owning my cameras. I wanna capture the life I live in now cause I won't know when it's going to go away..

Thanks all for the thoughts, I don't blame myself, I do wonder what was going through his mind. It sounds pretty much like he had a plan and he carried it out. If the police and his fiancee couldn't pull him back down there was not a thing anyone else could have done.

I guess it just leaves everyone with a lot of questions to which there are no good answers.

Keyan,

Sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. I've had a few similar experiences and I struggle with guilt, even though I know it's not rational. It often takes me a while to talk myself through it. We humans are a strange lot.

I am pretty much coming to the conclusion that he didn't end his own life, a disease caused him to die. A sinister, hard to find and treat illness, but in the end no different from any other illness that is ultimately terminal. And one that no one could do a thing about.
