I LOVE my Canon 20D - Photography

I have been using my Canon 20D DSLR for about a month now and cannot begin to say how happy I am with it. It is built very sturdy, is easy to use (although, I still need to sit down with the manual and spend some time experimenting with the advanced features :), and it takes just some amazing pictures! I went from using one of the original Canon Powershots to this, so maybe the quantum leap in technology is what is contributing to my impression, but I highly recommend to anyone in the market for a DSLR....check out the ...

    Default I LOVE my Canon 20D

    I have been using my Canon 20D DSLR for about a month now and cannot
    begin to say how happy I am with it. It is built very sturdy, is easy
    to use (although, I still need to sit down with the manual and spend
    some time experimenting with the advanced features :), and it takes
    just some amazing pictures! I went from using one of the original
    Canon Powershots to this, so maybe the quantum leap in technology is
    what is contributing to my impression, but I highly recommend to anyone
    in the market for a DSLR....check out the Canon 20D.

    I have started to post some of my pictures and wanted to see what
    people think of them...be kind, I am an amateur! ;)

    Nice pictures and I especially like the scenic pictures. I bought a 10D
    in October after the price drop and then got a 20D at Christmas. I've
    taken over 2300 pictures with the 20D and I sold the 10D with 578
    images on it. I have since sold my two Canon 1N film bodies and I have
    gone completely to digital photography. I was going to buy a second 20D
    body but decided to wait for the next generation Canon 20D replacement.
    I find with the ability to change ISO and other settings on every frame
    if needed that one body is enough.

    Keep up the good work and enjoy.

    I, too, recently switched from a point-and-shoot to a DSLR.
    It really is a world of difference.

    The landscape shots are attractive. These are a good advertisement
    for use of a tripod -- lots of fine detail. You did use a tripod,
    right? Either that or your hands are a lot steadier than mine.

    Sometimes it only makes sense to focus our attention on those
    questions that are equal parts trivial and intriguing.

    Thanks for the nice comments about my pictures...I will have to post
    some more! :)

    Yes, I used a tripod...I was a bit hesitant in the beginning (being an
    amateur and all), but will always carry one with me from now on...it
    really paid off! Even some shots I took using my 300mm lens look like
    great and I never was able to do that without a tripod (especially
    after a few cups of coffee!!! :)

    Thanks again!

    I'm an amateur too. But I try not to let that get in my way. :-)
    Tomorrow morning I'm shooting some pictures which, I have reason to
    hope, will find their way into print. Carry that tripod with your
    head held high: "amateur" is a noble word meaning "lover", and also,
    the line between professional and amateur is not so sharp.

    Thanks for all of your comments - everyone...I appreciate you taking
    the time to check out my pictures...

    I will use many of the suggestions I received on my next trip to
    Yosemite Valley...and this great book that I just got "The
    Photographer's Guide to Yosemite" by Michael Frye...it looks like a
    great handbook to take along on my next adventure there! Highly
    recommend it....

    Cheers!
