    Thanks! I wasn't so sure in the beginning if I would like the white letters out but they grew on me pretty quick. You either love it or hate it.

    I really can't remember what the settings were. We were just playing around with the T2i. There weren't any lights used except for the red LED and the light coming from the garage/streetlights. Sorry.
    :notsure:

    Yep, looks like I'm down to a car now. Sucks a lot. People can't keep their hands off other people's stuff. Got stolen from Paradise Hills on the 18th I believe. It was at my bro-in-laws house and they got it from his driveway. It was probably in mexico less than 30 minutes after it was taken.
