Re: 60D half-way button will shoot inmediatly

Look in the custom setting under operations.  You can change what the half press does, it's sounds like it's been turned off.

Hello Guys.... Maybe you can help me with this since I don't have any other way to try to get this issue solved....
I'm from Costa Rica.

I sent my camera Canon 60D to the repair shop in order to try to fix this issue (shutter button on half-way will AF and inmediately shoot), thinking that was the shutter button the one causing the issue. No internal issues on my camera but still getting the issue.
I thought it was the update I made from firmware 1.1.0 to 1.1.1... so I downgraded it to 1.1.0 but same issue/ Upgraded to 1.1.1 and same issue... and used the latest Magic lantern and same issue.
Cleared all possible functions and same issue. Replaced battery, same issue. Replaced card... same issue... used like 5 different lenses... same issue...
On my case... I can see the focus point but inmediately it will take the picture.... I'm also able to autofocus using the AF-ON button but I don't really know what's happening in here...

I've already done this. All custom settings to default, C.FN IV: Operation/Others: AF and metering buttons is set to 0 so:

Meter & AF Start
Meter & AF Start
AE Lock

Yesterday I even tried 1.0.9 firmware but same issue

Any other way to solve this?

Can you please advise what is wrong with the camera?
