    Default question: 30d focus screen

    i find myself shooting in low-light condition quite often nowadays, as my school life takes up the daylight hours. and i hate my camera hunting trying to get focus (even in the late afternoon when i can clearly see through my viewfinder). i'm looking into getting a focus screen and juz MF. I've found Kat Eyes but it's rather expensive. I found some ebay sellers but i think these screens will need calibration (shimming) b4 it can focus accurately. This is the part i'm not very sure of.

    Does anyone know someone who offers this service?

    Try Oriental Photo. Which lens were you using anyway?

    sometimes due to the shallow DoF associated with 1.8 aperture when i need to MF i have to stop down to maybe 2.8 to ensure i dont run into wrong focus...
