It's actually one of the first advices I gave my wife when she got her 600D (rebel something.. 3). I have missed too many moments trying to get it right. She is an able photographer, but I started out by telling her that if something happens, switch to green and shoot, if more time, let's play :)

Don't be afraid of either the green square or P modes for emergencies. You'll get the shot, even if it's not as well executed as you might like.


So that's what the green square is for.... I thought it was a special mode for taking pictures of cars... AUTO!

Ahh the green square, affectionately known around my house as "wife mode". Seriously though that's one draw back to the 1dx because you really just can't had it to some guy off the street to take a picture of you and the family. I'd probably get over it though.

You'd seriously hand over $6k of camera plus lens to a random guy on the street?
Too much gear, too little space.

At least check he don't look like sprinter body build type, or wear running shoes :)
