Great images for web and 11x14 and smaller prints, fast and tough.

The original 1D is a big camera. This is my second original 1D and I still like them for what I use them for. By todays standard 4.2 Mp doesn't seem good enough for serious work, but many a magazine spread and advertisement was made by images from these cams. Paired with good glass the images are still good enough for 11x14 prints (YMMV)…..
I use these cameras for school sports, yearbook images, church functions, and general shooting for the web. Colors are excellent and the small file sizes lead to fast processing without clogging my hard drive up. …I find the images are good up to ISO 1000 and at 100-400 to images are excellent. Using good glass, the level of detail recorded is amazing for the pixel count…. There are some drawbacks:..
Confusing menu structure if you have never used a 1D before
The Ni-MH batteries you get used need to be replaced
Lots of controls, not a point and shoot camera
You need the manual ( download it from Canon for free)
Make sure you get a factory charger or get a discount ($120 on Ebay) as it has the reconditioning function.
If you rely on heavy cropping or ultra high ISO look elsewhere……..Pluses :
Rugged and weather sealed
High frame rate
Excellent image quality for the Mp count
Excellent battery life
Raw is Tiff format and readable by most image programs
Metering works well
Great self defense weapon that also shoots good images ( or you shouldn't worry about damaging it :) )
Base ISO image quality excellent…….I have used the original Canon 1D and the Nikon D1, D1h, and D1x. The 1D and D1 series are quite similar in IQ and performance.

Great camera body

While this is an older Canon "Prosumer" body, it's actually stronger in image quality than the 50D and a more robust professional body than the 60D. The image quality and low light performance of this camera is great.

I would recommend this body to anyone who's advanced past the Rebel line of beginner cameras, but doesn't have the cash to afford a 7D or 5D.

The only drawback for this camera vs. the 50D is the lower resolution LCD, but that doesn't effect picture quality.

Canon EOS 10D Body 6.3 Megapixels

The Canon 10D was my first digital SLR. I have always had A soft spot for it. Not only because it was my first but also because it takes great pictures. When you hold the 10D in your hand it feels very rugged and strong. There A perfect choice for someone who wants to seriously get into photography and not spend a ridiculous amount of money. I am writing this on 11/20/2010 and both my 10D's work great and are 10 or more years old. Alot of people decide they want to try photography and spend over $1000.00 and the camera ends up in the bag getting hardly any use at all. Or the person loses interest completely and ends up selling the camera and losing alot of what they paid. The Canon 10D is the perfect entry level DSLR. They last and take great pictures. Try not to get caught up in the Megapixel game because 5 to 10 megapixels is all A hobbyist photographer really needs. 5 to 10 megapixels print beautiful 8"by 10" prints and I have printed many beautiful prints with my Canon 10D. Remember your gonna also need to buy lenses and lenses are very important for DSLR camera's. My advise to someone starting out would be a Canon 50mm. There about $100 new or A 18-55mm for a little more to start out with.Lenses do get expensive so shop around here on Ebay. Sigma lenses for Canon DSLR's are excellent lenses and nicely priced as well. I hope this helped you.**GOOD LUCK**Read full review...

Canon 30D Camera

I would say if you are getting into photography and want a good camera to start off with, get the Canon 30D. It's easy to use. Don't be fooled by the buttons. Read the manual!!! But basically it's just a matter of technique. It's a solid camera, using a Compact Flash (CF) card. Cleaning it is very simple. And the on screen display, is very easy & comfortable to navigate through.

This camera can use the higher L-series line of Canon lenses, too. A huge plus. It can work with studio equipment or on it's own.

If you are considering obtaining the battery pack, make sure your tripod can handle the extra weight.

If you are new to photography, you can't go wrong with this camera. For it's current online cost (used) you will be happy with the results.

An improvement over the classic EOS 20D

The EOS 30D replaced Canon's previous 'winner' the much acclaimed EOS 20D. It has some nice upgrades and although still offering 'only' 8.2 Mpixel produces spectacular prints right up to 16x24 and beyond. Nice upgrades include a colored menu display and larger rear screen LED display in addition to a faster continuous shooting ability. Probably well worth the $100 or so dollars (moore than the 20D) these cameras fetch uswed and of course they tend to be newer! As with all Canon DSLRs.... a great camera for the novice and pro alike!Read full review...

Oldie but still a goodie

I currently own two 1D Mark II's and a 1D but after renting a 5D for an assignment I fell in love with full frame. Unfortunately, I have little spare money. The file the 1DS produces is outstanding. I much prefer the focusing system over the 5D and I like the ease of setup for back button focus. I use the voice recorder a lot so this is another advantage over the 5D. I was surprised at how long it takes for an image to write to the card, even with a 150x card, before you can see it on the screen. I like the fact that you can enlarge the image on the screen (which is similar to a D30), but I do prefer the ease of enlargement with the Mark II. Although the ISO only goes up to 1250, I personally like the look of the 1DS noise over the 5D at the same ISO's. Overall, in my opinion, if you are looking to get into full frame and lack the cash I would consider this camera. Despite the age I still think the 1DS has a lot of advantages over the 5D.Read full review...

CANON 5D

Best full frame camera for around 1k. Gets best results with cheaper lenses that your Mark II cannot achieve...due to higher resolution of 21 mps. Also achieves low light photography with much less noise.

The camera auto-focuses crisp and fast. LCD is not that great, but your images will surprise you when you look at them on your computer.

Coming from a DX Nikon however some minus are clunky, camera is not recognized as a storage drive, and LCD is not accurate to pictures this wonderful camera produces.

However that's the only things that stop me from giving it a 100% rating so I would only say around 98% excellence rating.
