Canon EOS 10D

10D
Review Date: Aug 16, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,449.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Beautifully ergonomic, easy to navigate, stellar images for price, low noise in higher ISO settings, nice menu layout, Kelvin temperature WB, good LCD monitor, sturdy magnesium alloy chassis...
Cons:
slow write times in RAW, especially in drive mode...

After dinging around with digital for awhile, and playing with a G2 for about a year, I took the plunge into DSLR by grabbing the 10D. Wow! What a catch...

I've had the 10D for a year now, and my other cameras are collecting dust. I even gave one of the old digitals to my father so he can shoot his antique farm machinery whenever he wants, instead of waiting for me to come home for the weekend...

Thousands of images have passed through the 10D, and the bad ones were operator error. The 10D is a workhorse of a camera, and when coupled with good glass, it makes for a very formidable combination.

The learning curve is there, but it's fun to learn. I throw my raw images into Photoshop CS with the RAW plug-in and I'm all set. The Kelvin White Balance mode is all I use, and I've learned to read light quite well as a result...and even if I'm a little off, I can always fix it in the PSCS RAW plug-in. Cool!!

I have one gripe...slow write times of RAW images in drive mode. I suppose there are limits, but I still would like a little more speed.

I Love this camera!!

I get envious stares from other spectators and shutterbugs for a reason...they know what I'm shooting with, and they know what kind of results I'm going to get from it.
