I recently upgraded from 20D to 40D and I tried using my new camera without battery grip. It is a bit bigger and heavier than the 20D and feels really good to use without a bg.
Because I am going to travel for 5 months soon I considered leaving the battery grip and just taking the body…
The problem is….How do you shoot vertical pictures without a grip. With the separate control over exposure lock and focus as I have at the moment I cannot take vertical shots.
It is really hard to pres the AF on button when shooting vertical. So I can’t focus properly. My head always hits my hand.. ☺
How do you do this? Do you just use the shutter button for af and ae?
