10D
Review Date: Aug 29, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: durable, dead reliable, tool for nearly every situation (if you do your job right)
Cons:
a bit slow compared to newer designs, battery life, needs good lenses

I felt in love with this camera from the very first beginning, bought it 4 years ago and released about 25.000 times. I'm still amazed with the result when I use my brain to work with the abilities the 10D gives to my hands.

This is not a fire-and-forget camera as like as most of the semi-pro or pro cameras aren't. I t takes good lenses to create good pictures the body is only just one part of the whole system. Sio invest in accessories like an external flash (first 380EX now 580 EX), the battery grip and again in lenses.

No matter what shooting situation I'm in I can trust on my 10D as my favorite workhorse.

Sometimes I would liek to have it operate a bit faster but this is something you get used to. Be sure to carry some extra battery life with you and you'll be on the save side.
