Question about Canon PowerShot EOS D60 Digital Camera
I have my Canon D60, and honestly apart from the exposure issues its not a bad little camera. But today I had it hooked up to my studio lights and it just wouldn't focus, it would just zoom in and out trying to find a point of focus. I tried 3 differant lenses and all three lenses did it. It was very annoying having to stop and wait for it to stop doing its thing and start again. Outside it has no problems in focusing just with studio lights.

1) Being connected to your studio lights is interfearing with the camera's electronics, disturbing its ability to focus. Does it focus if you're not actually connected to the studio strobes, but are trying to focus using just the modelling lights? 2) There may simply not be enough light for the camera to focus. Canon sells a red LED AF illuminator that sits in the hotshoe (can't remember the part number). That may help. Also, if your modelling lights are set to "tracking" or "proportional", try setting them to fixed full power. You've probably got the strobes set several stops lower than full power, so "tracking" modelling lights rob you of several stops of focusin light. Or try a faster lens.
