It seems I've received every piece of original paper that came in the package...except the English manual. lol

Pfft! Who needs manuals?

Actually, I did the other night -- fumbling in the dark, tried to use my RC-6 that I bought a few months ago. It wouldn't snap a picture when I pressed the button. Grumble. Flipped through the manual when I got home. Needed to set Drive Mode to one of the two self-timer settings to get it working. Great logic, Canon!

Pauly, I had a friend that did that and it worked well because he essentially had a different card for different people.

yeah that sure is ideal...

I have a Pet & Family Photography (Paws the Moment!) card on one side and the other side is a whole other card directing people to my fine wildlife prints.

Having 'different' cards could be advantageous

Looks like I'll be downgrading here tonight. I found a XSI gripped and a extra battery for $200. SCORE! I've been looking for something cheap that will use my same remote and uses SD cards so I can use all the stuff my 60D uses. I've been wanting a extra camera for a while now so I can have a dedicated wide angle.

"THAT" is a score! The XSi was my first DSLR and I keep an eye on prices for EXACTLY the same reason as you. XSi for landscape and a lightweight backup. Dpreview scored it very well and its so funny how I would rather that retro XSi versus a T2i or T3i :lol: I'm sentimental about the XSi I guess... its a great 12mp sensor and its when dpreview started mentioning that you need a really good lens to make use of the 12mp resolving power of the sensor... so by all mean use your 'L' glass ;)

Well now you've got me wanting an XSi all over again!

There's another one here with the kit lens for $200. ;) I just got done from hanging out at my friends house and started playing around with it. Don't see a live view button, does it do that? Not very concerned about it, but would be cool if it did.

[Addendum: the XSi was a unique sensor - the 40D was 10mp, the 50D was 15mp, and the XSi (12mp) came out the same yr as the 50D (2008).
You had to 'enable' Live View with the 50D as well (my 2nd DSLR)]

I 'think' the 40D had Live View... surely you would have to enable it as well....

you are bringing back memories...

here's the thing with the XSi... Canon was 'scared' to automatically have live-view "Enabled" because so many photography purists (read: film) would frown on it...

Live View must be 'Enabled' in the menu... somewhere...

The XSi also introduced the first and "New" 18-55mm IS... which again - quite impressed the dpreview staff (before "Amazon.com PURCHASED dpreview, mind you)

I'd love to find a XSi kit locally... that is as retro as I would get and I'd be just fine with that - it would be 'fun'!

Something I always forget to share --

If you're like me and do not like to use a strap sometimes but hate how difficult it is to take a strap on and off of Canons.

Look into these (http://www.amazon.com …o00_s00_i03?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)).

They are plenty sturdy and I just bought clips from Home Depot to use for the straps.

Hah thanks.

So I borrowed a 24-105 from another SoCal POTN member and this lens paired with the 6D.. so nice.

I think when I am ready to buy another lens, this may just be it.

24-105, 50, and 70-200 would be a great set up for my needs - and 24 is plenty wide
