you are just now venturing into the world of fine art digital photography
you can immerce yourself in new knowledge about almost every aspect
that I can think of. The photographs on the Outback Photo site
are stunning, to say the least! The books and handbooks offer a
true wealth of knowledge because they are so well thought out and
organized in a concise manner, with numerous examples.
Excerpt: The Canon EOS 10D ($1,500 street) is the company's third-generation consumer digital SLR, and it shows, offering an unbeatable combination of image quality, ergonomics, and value. Canon has addressed the few complaints we had with previous models (sluggish auto-focus, erratic flash exposure, and the lack of a focus indicator in the viewfinder). The result is a smooth, elegant camera that isn't much more difficult to use than a point-and-shoot model.
Conclusion: Canon had a tough act to follow, the EOS-D60 carved out an excellent name for itself from reviewers and owners alike. With that in mind Canon stuck to the formula, a 'half height' digital SLR body with a similar layout to the EOS-D60 but this time it would have an all magnesium body just like the EOS-1D and 1Ds.
Pros: Excellent resolution, pulls ahead of EOS-D60 (just), no moiré at resolution limit, Good color, if different response than the EOS-D60, Adobe RGB delivers better accuracy, Noise free 'silky smooth' images, Very low noise levels even at ISO 1600, virtually unnoticeable below this, Images not 'over sharpened' or damaged by visible sharpening artifacts, Excellent long exposure capability, some 'stuck pixels' in very long exposures (3 mins plus), Both reduced shutter relea...
Cons: Opening the CF compartment door shuts camera down, loses any buffered images, Average automatic white balance performance, we expected more, Confusing sequence of lights in AI Servo auto focus, Stuck pixel noise in very long night exposures (3 mins plus), Viewfinder view is smaller than film or full frame digital SLR's, Five levels of parameter adjustment is welcome, but why stop there?, No parameter adjustment with Adobe RGB color space selected, White balance not fi...
Excerpt: When it comes to digital SLRs, Canon deserves credit for breaking more price and performance barriers in the last three years than any other manufacturer. It all started with the introduction of the EOS D30 in 2001, the first 3MP DSLR priced under $3,000, and the very first to use a CMOS sensor. A year later, Canon launched the CMOS-based EOS D60, the first 6.3MP camera priced under $2,000.
is more frustrating than watching your newly-purchased consumer
electronics product get replaced a month after you bought it.
That happened to me a month ago, when Canon announced
the new EOS-10D Digital
SLR ($1499 street price), which replaced the EOS-D60 that I had
just bought for more money.
Pros: Excellent image quality (but note softness/focus issues), Absolutely, positively, no noise, Improved performance over D60, Very nice metal body, New white balance by color temperature option; more control over color, sharpness, contrast, Noticeably better LCD display, Modern playback mode (at last), All the benefits of a D-SLR: lenses, flashes, and full manual controls, Nice software package included
Cons: Images too soft at default sharpness - focus issue, or worse?, Camera doesn't mount on Mac OS X desktop (must use software), Not a fan of new AF-assist lamp system, More redeye than expected with built-in flash, FireWire port would be nice

Excerpt: De 10D heeft een zwaardere body als de goedkopere en meer gangbare 350D. Het voordeel daarvan is dat een beetje lens niet meteen de hele body doet kantelen.
De mogelijkheden van de 10D zijn er veel, maar in de praktijk zul je ze lang niet allemaal gebruiken.
Vaak zijn de foto´s te licht van kleur.
En ook komen er vaak foutmeldingen voor met telelenzen. Terwijl het idee van een digitale spiegelreflex nou juist is dat je je oude lenzen kunt blijven gebruiken.
Excerpt: EOS 10D è una digitale SLR ad alte prestazioni. È dotata della medesima qualità del corpo, della definizione dell'immagine e dell'eccezionali funzionalità di una fotocamera EOS analogica ad alte prestazioni, con in più i vantaggi della fotografia digitale.
i alt er Canon EOS 10D et imponerende fotografisk verktøy for den
avanserte fotografen. 10D er imidlertid ikke noe mer enn det, her har
man verken videomodus, MP3-spiller, lydopptaker eller verdenskalender
slik enkelte kompakte modeller kan skilte med. 10D passer for den seriøse fotografen som ønsker best mulig
bilder og trenger manuelle funksjoner og fleksibilitet for å få
til dette. Det får man per i dag ikke med noe kompakt kamera.
