I am a computational linguistics PhD candidate. But before that, long before that, I fell in love with languages.

Aha. Seems so obvious in retrospect.

I don't know if it's a fog filter, since the foreground looks completely distinct.

comment EOS 60D manual focus/exposure selection only after half press
Yep, not that big a deal. There probably is an engineering reason for it, just wondered if the community knew of a) a setting to change the behaviour, or b) a good justification for it.

comment EOS 60D manual focus/exposure selection only after half press
@Gapton: Correct. That's exactly the mode I'm talking about, which I like because it's faster to select, but unfortunately requires this half-press.

comment EOS 60D manual focus/exposure selection only after half press
Yep, I'm aware of that. However, there's a setting which maps the eight-direction button (around the wheel) to AF point selection. This, unfortunately, requires the half-press too. If it didn't, I would be able to select an AF point without looking at the screen, which would be useful when anticipating a shot.

comment EOS 60D manual focus/exposure selection only after half press
Before I shoot, I have an idea of what compensation I might need. The problem is that as far as I can tell, on the 60D, you need to either 1) half-press the shutter before you can adjust exposure using the wheel, or 2) go through the menu on the back LCD, which is slow. This might just be a 60D quirk. I was just wondering whether there's a good reason for the half-press.

Precisely, yes. I can get to the functionality using the menu, but the two shortcuts I mentioned, which allow you to make these adjustments without looking at the screen, only work once you half-press the shutter.
