    Canon 60D On Sceen Settings

    Hello,

    I recently bought a Canon 60D and I want to know if it is possible to keep the on screen settings such as Shutter Speed / Aperture etc available on the display for all times. I am used to Canon 1000D which used to have this feature but with Canon 60D I've to press the Q button to get the settings everytime I want them.

    They should show in your viewfinder at all times and on the top LCD. Keeping the display on all of the time will kill your battery and is quite a distraction.

    Get used to it. it's a lot easier for you to adapt to the camera then for the camera to adapt to you.
    I am very bitter these days.

    ya, info button.
    I used to be like you but i've learned to appreciate using the top lcd and it really does save a ton of batt.

    I hardly ever use the live view to take pics. I'm always looking through the view finder. When you half cock the shutter, the info appears on the bottom.

    The Q button is your friend for this.

    In custom functions you should be able to set it the way you want.
