Thanx a lot Re: Basic Setup Suggestions for T3i/600D

Thanx for the tips.  I'll follow up from there.

It was quite an experience to read the 300+ pages of the 600D manual.    I had to shut off what camera manufacturer specific knowledge I have and try to understand the Canon way of saying things.

I now can understand some of the FanBoys.  These companies all make cameras that do the same thing, but they speak in different languages.   (nope I don't yet speak 600D, but expect I'l be able to hold a good conversation before I'm done helping my friend.  One hard part will be to use the Canon speak instead of Nikon or m43's.   Funny that back in the '60s I shot a Canon Pellex and some of the manual was in that same language. 

again - thanx a lot
