This shot was taken with my Canon 60D @ a 1/4 second hand held with a 28mm f1.8. That is right 1/4 second. I have a Hoodloupe attached to my LCD which I call the L-Finder. I use live-view which locks up the mirror. No vibration and very quiet.

The L-Finder

This is for you 60Der’s. This one of the main reasons I sold my 7D. It is a lot cheaper than the new Electronic Z-Finder or Redrock.

What other HDSLR can do this.

The L-Finder. It consists of a Hoodman Hoodloupe 3.0
Here it is on Amazon:
Hoodman H-LPP3 HoodLoupe 3.0 Professional 3-Inch Screen Loupe

and the Hoodman HCAMM Neoprene Camorder Mount Strap
Here it is:

This works well. Other loupes would be too heavy for the 60D LCD in that it would swivel on its own.

It is also being offered one unit.

Outdoors For All Video

Here is a new video that I worked on.  Who says that the Canon 60D does not have good audio when recorded in camera?

This was presented at the Outdoors For All 2010 Auction at the Seattle Design Center on 11/6/10.  I shot it with my Canon 60D with manual Audio. I used a JuicedLink DT454 4 Channel DSLR Preamp and Sennheiser ew 112-p G3 Wireless
