Ordered my Canon 40D today. Bought the kit lens 28-135 IS even though I have one. My uncle is going to buy it from me at a steal. Also ordered the battery grip and a new photo printer that uses an 8-ink well.

Should be pretty well set for this year's wakeboarding shots of the kiddies.

bought a 30 D with the 28-135.
Have no idea how to use it.
I can move around in it , but don't know what settings to put it on based on conditions.
This summer, I will just have to play with it.

take some camera classes for it.... I just upgraded to the same camera and love it... I can't wait for the Coca Cola 600 race here in Charlotte... this time I'm not running out of memory!!!! last year I took over 1,000 pictures and ran out with 75 laps to go... was not a happy camper....

Back on the market.

The camera is still for sale. Just so you know. Canon 10D. 35-80 Kit zoom to get you started. Battery Grip, 2 high power batteries (about 1800 pictures on a charge) All documentation and software. In original boxes. I also have a laminated cheat sheet that I am throwing in that tells you how to do everything imaginable on the camera.

I got one email about this camera trying to compare it to a Rebel XTI. The difference between this camera and an XTI is like comparing an X-Star to a Bayliner. The differences are in the build quality and the functions. As an example, this camera has a magnesium body where a Rebel has a plastic body. Where that really matters is if you try to use a heavy zoom in the boat in rough water. That heavy lens will snap the mount off the Rebel but it is fine on the 10D.

I have a 40D now and I love it. The picture quality is noticably improved over the pictures I take with my Rebel. But I would still say a Rebel is a decent entry level digital SLR. I've kept mine and I've had times where I carry both cameras around my neck so I can switch back and forth quickly between different lens focal lengths. I decide what lens I will want most of the time and and put that one on my 40D. Other times Rick uses the Rebel so we can both have fun taking pictures.

As for a Rebel's mount breaking with a zoom lens in a boat, I don't buy it. I used my Rebel with a zoom for 3 years in the boat and sometimes the water was really rough. It still works great. You should be holding the camera body with your right hand and supporting the lens with your left hand. If you hold the camera correctly you aren't stressing your camera mount and you have better pictures because you don't have as much camera shake.

RK@UST, just mess around with the creative modes in your camera on days when you don't want to take pictures of anything special. I just look for random sporting events around town in all kinds of lighting situations to get used to the features so I'll be ready for the ski season.

I'm really looking forward to using my new camera this summer! :dance: :banana:

The 40D is amazing. This was one of my first shots with it. No photoshop or anything. This is straight out of the camera.

to others interested in the camera:
just wanted to say nothing is wrong about the camera that caused me to back out..... just had a few financial setbacks that needed to be taken care of first.
In this particular case, the camera was going to be a luxury purchase.

Stuart and I had several pm's and I asked for forgiveness, he was totally cool about it. I'm the one that feels like the heel:o

It wasn't a big deal at all. I'm not deperate to sell it. If no one wants it I can always use it as a backup or to keep a different lens on. That's always nice when you want to switch to a close shot but you have a 400 MM on the camera.

if no one wants it, I'd like another chance at it next month....
more money went out this month than came in.....you know the reasons
gotta get another couple of limo jobs under my belt.
I just didn't want to put you out.
