Ask canon if they will send you a replacement. You can peel off the old one and apply the new. The covers are peeled away when servicing a camera, and usually can be re-applied. A touch of contact glue would secure it as well.

Hey everyone!There is no 70D, so no one here knows what features it might eventually have. It seems likely to appear in the next month or two, and might have new features introduced by the t4I plus a few more, but that is merely guessing. I'd wait and see if you are not in a hurry.
I'm new to photography and videography, and I'm looking to purchase a new DSLR. I'll be using it for around 70% video, and 30% photo. I was wondering if you could help me out by giving me some advice on which camera I should go for. 650D or 70D?
I don't mind waiting for the 70D and spending the extra if it's worth it. But is it? Why, or why not?
Thanks in advance!
I expect a replacement model with more features to be announced soon, perhaps a touch screen, autofocus while taking video, optimized for the new STM lenses, etc. It might be worth waiting.
I know, it's the Canon 4Ti (650D)
Too late, already got the 60D.
The 4Ti did not have some things I wanted.
What is STM lenses, that I did not know about?My main arguement against the 60D is that you can not use AFMA to fine tune the autofocus to match any AF error in your lenses.
Okay, wosh! Right over my head, I have no idea what you're talking about.
Camera bodies control the focus of a lens by commanding it to focus at a particular point. There is always some error in both the camera and in the lens, nothing is perfect. The more advanced bodies generally have a feature called Auto focus Micro adjustment that allows you to fine tune the Lens and body combination.
It doesn't matter too much with the kit lenses and their smaller apertures / depth of field, but when a user decides to go for a wide aperture f/1.8 or f/1.4 lens, for example, they will always benefit from fine tuning, the alternative is to send the lens and camera body to be adjusted, and then the next new lens will be off.
In many cases, its not a significant issue, but due to the very shallow depth of field that a wide aperture lens is capable of, a focus error of a inch or two can be easily seen. Being able to fine tune the focus for such wide aperture lenses will let you get the most out of them.
I want to get a 50mm lens soon, the cheap one, like 100 bucks, will that look like crap now?
If you use the lens at f/1.8, its possible, even likely that it will not achieve perfect focus. It just depends on how tolerances in the body and in the lens stack up. They might cancel each other out, or they might add and then its worse.
Okay, some quick questions.
1. How many external speed lights can you control with the 60D? 2, 4, 8, 20 ? I can't find that anywhere and I want to do some BIG outdoor urban night shooting and want to place some about 26 meters away (Max distance, I did find that out). I'm thinking I'll need speed light triggers right?
You can only control Canon speedlites in the camera menu. I don't know that there is a limit, but certainly its limited to a short distance.
2. My Canon SX20 can zoom to 80x, my 60D is only as good as the lens that is on it, what lens will equal the 80x zoom of the SX20? (Keep in mind I'm on a tight budget.)
The SX20 can zoom to 20X optically. Beyond that, its just cropping a already small image. The many times larger sensor in a DSLR makes it impractical to have a long zoom range. 20X would be too big, and too expensive.
3. Where is a good place to buy on-line a second or third battery? I KNOW there has to be a thread on this, but when I search, too many results come up and I get no answer after reading about 20-30 threads. Just more questions.
I can't speak for Okinawa
4. Other than ebay, where can a guy find used camera equipment, astro phto equipment, etc. I'm looking for a used one of these:
Can someone provide a link to the CLP? Thx!
Just ordered mine. It was over $1600 for me after tax/shippingI heard the price went up on July 1. On June 29 they were giving 20% off. Did you have to pay the higher price?
But it will be my first full frame so I'm excited. Trading in my old Powershot A590 IS point & shoot.
Are they jpg or raw images? If you are shooting jpeg, you are letting the camera guess at the right colors, and it might not always come out like what you see. When you use RAW, you are getting information off the sensor, and its pretty easy to change the color to something you like in DPP or lightroom, aperture, DXO, etc.The final image comes down your RAW Processing. I get great skin tones from any camera by getting the exposure correct and processing in LR3. Shooting at a larger aperture will provide the buttery background but your subject may not still have those nice skin tones.
Switching to FF will not magically fix your skin tones, Its your processing that will do that.
Any tips for getting the exposure correct?
The FF would help with crop factor and IQ moreso than actual skin and individual shots is what I meant. I'll have to download a trial of LR and see what I can accomplish with it...
Let me rephrase the original question: "Help me decide between buying the 2013 Porsche Carrera S and the Honda Hybrid Self-Driving Hovercar." Given Canon's recent track record of lens delays, we may actually see that hovercar before the 200-400mm lens.
