    UPS showed up with my 30D and lens this afternoon and the box that it all was in was a little rough. Both the camera and lens boxes look good though...:x:


    Opened everything up to make sure it was all there but haven't had time to charge the battery and mount the lens (don't have a CF card so I can't do anything wiht it anyway)




    oh, btw...

    :w00t: 30D is here!

    My 30D has the slightest rattle to it, so did my rebel. I'm not worried about it.
     
  7. In the begining alot of people were saying that the bigger LCD is no big deal.

    I was shooting along side a couple guys using 20d's. We were doing a shoot with a model and you know sometimes the girl asks to see the shot. It was funny because the 2 guys with the 20d showed the girl their pics and I could see her holding the camera close to her face so she could see the pic better, then she looked at mine she said wow your screen is soo big!

    I was like :o

    I shoulda said something perverted afterwards but I wasn't thinking about it at the time. :mamoru:

    :rofl:

    there really is no reason for upgrading from 20d to 30d except for the larger LCD..

    but it does really make you want to do it..

    Isn't AI Servo just continuous focus? 20D already has that?

    halfassed bubble wrap on the bottom, the 2 boxes where there was room for 4, and a string of those air bag thingies with half of them deflated on top.

    Suppose though, plenty of room for box intrusion before it gets to the goods..:hsd:

    oh hells yeah I got bubbles... I guess. :coolugh:


    Damn that battery charges fast! Picked up a CF card and UV filter this afternoon, put things together and fired off a few shots while reading through the book.

    Screw with it some more tomorrow. Everything seems to work though..

    Ohhh yeah, you're, it does. I remember reading somewhere that they did change something about the AI servo focusing on the 30D though. Probably something minor.
