The Transformation of the 60D

The beast....
Notice the remote control RC-6 strapped to the arm. I am using it to start-stop the video shoot.

Re: The Transformation of the 60D

Steve, you can easily operate the camera with one hand and the other to focus. As you can see you I can hold the shoulder support with my right hand and also operate the start/stop function with the remote; this leaves my left hand for focus. It is really steady as it rests on your shoulder.
The support is not expensive either.
Here is the link for it: home
and here is for the Videomic: http://rodemic.com/microphone.php?product=VideoMic
and their new product: http://rodemic.com/microphone.php?product=videomicpro

Re: The Transformation of the 60D

Gianni, I got this viewfinder: 3:2 LCD viewfinder x2,8 for CANON 550D / T2i / KISS X4 - eBay (item 180582723471 end time May-02-11 07:34:44 PDT)
and I also got this LCD protector GGS Pro Glass LCD Screen Protector for Canon 550D NEW! - eBay (item 220737522616 end time Apr-11-11 00:36:21 PDT) where I glue the viewfinder. This way it can easily come on and off without attaching any permanent frames on my camera.

Stelios

For about $10 more they offer the "Combo" configuration with a 3rd grip which centers under the camera axis. When you "go one handed" and use that "Combo" grip with the left hand balance is a lot better.

I use their SpiderBrace 2 "Combo" with Manfrotto 577 quick release adapter for when the cam comes off the tripod. My main tripod has a Manfrotto 501 head and the release "plates" are fully compatible.

Quick release adapter: http://www.amazon.com/Manfrotto-577-Connect-Adapter-Mounting/dp/B00009XV3M/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1301940866&sr=8-4

Re: The Transformation of the 60D

Your viewfinder looks exactly like the LCDVF:

but at half the price. Does anyone know if the glass is comparable? LCDVF is quite good!

Re: The Transformation of the 60D

How did you use the LCD protector? The ebay seller says that LCD protector is for the 550d (t2i) and does not work for the 60d.

I know I cannot use it on my 60D as the spacing is not the same. I am looking now to find one for the 60D.
In the meantime I still use it but it doesnt "sit" exactly on the LCD just a bit to the left.

Re: The Transformation of the 60D

Stelios- your LCD viewfinder looks like an exact replica of the LCDVF, which costs twice as much. I realize you probably haven't been able to compare the two, however- how clear is your viewfinder? Does it magnify things properly, making focus simple? Do you have any gripes about it? I have to buy a viewfinder and was about to get the LCDFV until I saw yours...

The viewfinder is very clear and makes manual focus so easy. It's not though for the 60D it's for the 550D that I had before I replaced it with the 60D.
