Just curious here. My main scroll wheel (top, behind the shutter button) no longer works. Has anyone seen this before? It clicks and all, it just doesn't change the settings anymore, i.e. in M it doesn't adjust the shutter speed, it just spins with the clicks...

Yer fix. :P

Thanks folks!

This was a similar one a second later

on a different and humorous note, when I was grabbing the above from Flickr - there was a moment while the page was loading and during that 0.8 seconds of loading there was some small text seen:

good for them for a sense of bizarre humor :cool:

Curious about IS. Anybody know HOW it works? I have a Pentax point and shoot with zoom that describes its software solution as averaging the lines it finds over time. But that doesn't explain the Canon system where some lenses do it and others don't.

in canon dslr lenses, it's not software. there's something inside the lens that compensates movement. yes not all lenses has those. that makes the price difference sometimes.

correct me guys if i'm wrong.

Canon's IS is in the lens as Vinz says but I thought Pentax has their stabilization in the body... Canon would rather we pay a premium for IS ever lens we get...

Pros to lens stabilization is the viewfinder is also stabilized. Not so with a sensor stabilization platform.

I've seen a few places talk about IS in the lens is more effective than IS in the body because each is specifically made to the lens.

It's actually very crazy.

There are a series of motion sensors in the lens itself that sample at something like 1000 times a second. There is a "floating" lens element that is suspended with a series of springs and magnets that actually shifts in real time to compensate for the shake of the camera, keeping the final image optically stable. The system is only energized when you start the AF process or are running liveview - you can see the optical "jump" as the floating element gets into full alignment when IS starts on many lenses. It's a crazy technology.

The P&S Pentax is doing software image stabilization - it does not have a moving part, but instead, as they say, it averages the values, generally this comes with a sacrifice of sharpness.

Thanks for that. My Pentax generally takes remarkably nice images for a $300 dollar camera. But of course the Canon is better, if you pay close attention to what you are doing.

One of the first things I tried was removing the grip. Also cleaned the contacts on everything. Factory reset was a no-go. Vixen's idea is my next move. The wheel clicks, but I'm willing to try everything before i ship it off. My biggest fear it that somewhere between here and the Canon place it will simply start working again and I'll get the generic "cannot replicate problem, no issues found" line. Those drive me insane!

Thanks again everyone! The UPside to this is that I will be forced to use my 5Dc for everything. I hope I still want my 60D by the time this gets sorted out :rolleyes:
