A real camera

WOW! What a camera
Pros: FAAAAAAAAAAAAST camera, large buffers, 5 fps, exposure control!, 3 shutter modes
Cons: Expensive, Canon tries to limit third-party products, no preview mode, no stitch mode
Torn between a Rebel & 20D? Save for the 20D now there's also 30D. All canon EF/EF-S lenses work with this body. Digic image sensor superior to other types. Read More at Epinions.com

Cons: Quality control is TERRIBLE. Small dim color LCD display. Heavy.
