I was born and raised a city kid in NYC before attending the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Then I moved out West to become a California hippie. Well not quite... I actually moved to Silicon Valley to be a professional software engineer at Siebel Systems, which has since been eaten by Oracle. I did that for a few years before becoming a freelance CRM consultant in 2005, helping other companies with their Siebel implementations. I was turned onto this site from Coding Horror. When I'm not on my computer, I'm running around town with my dogs.

comment How do you manually focus accurately without a focusing screen?
After disabling the flash in the menu, I flipped the flash up and it used light to auto-focus, but didn't pop when I took the picture. It works great, and that's all I really needed, not manual focus. I also experimented with zooming in Live View, which was a little slower, but also works. Thanks.

Live View Zoom is a feature on the 1000D, and sounds like a good idea. I'll also check if I can use AF-Assist (Auto-Focus Assist) without popping the flash. Thanks, Everyone, for the tips.
