With snow reaching West Sussex, I had the opportunity to click a few snaps on my way to work.

I took some photos around the house last night and LOVE my new camera and the Tamron 17-50. It does make quite a load noise when focusing as I expected it would, but I don't find the noise repulsive or annoying in any way...I kind of like it actually. The screen on the 60d is incredible. I have ALLOT to learn and will start to post some photos up as soon as I work out how!

This is a marvelous Christmas shot - you could print this huge and hang it every Christmas season in your home for decades to come...

Look for a Christmas Photo thread I post tomorrow - Dec. 1st - I hope you post this pic in there.

Im sure most of you shoot in M or (manual) mode. Anybody know how get rid of the AEB (auto exposure bracketing). ? It has to be the most annoying thing with this camera. I just simply want to adjust the level of the exposure for one shot, and the only way to do this is to take 3 different shots using AEB. The manual states how you "should" be able to turn it off, but that doesnt work. I'm completely lost as to why all the other modes on the camera let you adjust exposure and why manual of all things is set up for AEB.

I'm not sure I follow? I usually shoot in Av mode (and use exp compensatio in that) though will go to manual when using flash. I thought the whole point of manual was to adjust exposure via shutter speed and aperture and that exposure compensation would be redundant in these cases?

I also think the same way. Manual mode is meant to be 100% manual. If you want +1 stop of light, adjust ISO/Shutter Speed/Aperture accordingly.

First off, I'm a total newb... But you reminded me of a question I have. Can I set the shutter button to auto-focus and lock the metering together? The closest setup I've figured out is to use the shutter button for focus and hold one of the buttons on back to keep the metering set, which is awkward. Am I missing something obvious? I like to use my center focus point and recompose each shot, may not be correct way but I'm still learning :)

robonrome,

In my case - I have mild suspicion that the 60D sometimes underexposes when using Auto ISO in 'M'anual Mode. I would like to expose by one stop to the right via exposure compensation to set it the way "I" want exposure - not how the camera judges exposure using Auto ISO.

When in Manual Mode - and using manual ISO - I merely employ ETTR as standard practice - but cannot if using Auto ISO.

yet - I have found the 60D's high ISO to be so nice that I can push the "Fill Light" in Lightroon 3 without really much noise penalty and even still - Lr3's NR is really quite something for cleanup...
;)

Not sure if this answers your question - but I have my metering timer set to 30 seconds in Menu - 4th Red box - bottom/Metering timer

Makes absolutly no sense to have AEB and not 1+- exposure....... AEB is usefull when you have a subject thats not moving and not trying to capture a split second moment. So besides potraits and landscapes AEB is useless... Fully manual should be "fully manual".

^^JJmc, I don't quite understand your point here.

Shooting in full manul is, FULL manual. Let's say 1/100, F4 and ISO 200. If you want -1 light stop, change one of those setting. Either drop to 1/200 or F5.6 or ISO 100. Letting the camera decide which setting to move would not be FULL manual. So it makes senses that there is no such thing.

Also Automatic Exposure Bracketing is usefull in more than one situation. The example you were stating was (I think), HDR pictures. While AEB's most common use is HDR, there is plenty of other reason to use it. While doing sports shot, you might want to try different shutter speed to see the effect on the overall picture. AEB comes in pratical. While doing some portrait/macro/general photography, you might want to see which aperture suits the scene best. AEB also comes in practical.

So yes, it makes sense to have AEB only ;)
