A question I have about my 60D. When I use my camera I keep the LCD screen out (as I am sure most everyone does) with the display turned on to the data screen showing what mode I am in, shutter speed etc.

Last night I was using the camera and noticed as I brought the camera up to look thru the viewfinder, the LCD screen did not turn off like it used to do.

I looked thru the Menu settings but did not see anything like it would have an affect on turning off the LCD screen. Is this something in the custom configurations?

Thank you

60D does not have a proximity sensor like few other models have (my T2i had it) so it can't really sense that you brought the camera up to your face. Are you sure it did it before? Maybe your screen timeout was lower or something because it doesn't work that way. I missed that feature as well after I upgraded from T2i but it doesn't bother me anymore.

I was wondering about that 'if I had it before' and I thought I did.... outside at night with it dark last night it did bother me. I sure liked it on my XSi and thought sure Canon would have kept using it.

Thanks

Canon doesn't have that sensors on 60D and neither 7D ( I don't know if 5D2 or top models have it) Yeah it's a PITA. But soon you will find that if you hit the info button it will turn it off. I have the Info button configured to show only shooting functions. So 1 click bring up the info, 1 click turn it OFF. this is my workaround for this.. I really miss those sensors from my previous Sony alpha.

I am loving this 50mm. I got to take some pictures of some kids I teach at church today. Cute kids and a great lens with a great camera makes for some good photos! :)

I miss the sensor as my XSi also had it. I already knew about the info button, but thank you for reminding me :D

Not sure if this is the place to post this question. I've been experimenting with my 60D and a Celestron Regal 100F-ED spotting scope. Has anyone else used this scope as for a lens? Below is one of my first pictures of the moon shoot at 67x.

Thanks for posting these, nice shots. I just got this Tamron lens a couple of weeks ago and didn't have a chance to really use it much for sports, etc. Used it for some birds shots but was worrying that it will not do well for fast action. Looks like it is just fine as long as the light is good. Nice and sharp at the long end too. Awesome.

Nice magnification! Looking at the EXIF looks like your exposure time was 1/60 which is a bit slow since the moon moves. I kept making this mistake as well and got some advice from helpful members - here for example. The end result was much sharper shot. Try to up your shutter speed to at least 1/125 or even higher if you can. Use mirror lock up and wired/wireless trigger or timer to avoid any shake. With your magnification you should get some nice moon shots!

Still haven't forgotten to take a picture with the Rokkor-X 50mm with the adapter on a tripod, just now getting around to doing it. So expect a picture shortly!
