Summary: Even though the EOS 10D is outdated, I used it for two years as a staff photographer for my college newspaper. The camera worked great, even though it had been used a lot and was old. The three frames per second was good enough for sporting events. The max 3200 ISO was also very good, I was able to take clear, crisp images at basketball games, despite the bad lighting. This camera helped me win some collegiate awards and I highly recommend it to any beginner.
Summary: I purchased this camera as my first big step into photography. I am only 15, but I have always been interested in taking pictures, and I'm getting the hang of it pretty quickly. I own a Power SX500is, which allows for full manual control, but this camera was a way to get the "real deal" portion of lens changing and very customized settings.
Excerpt: I totally love my Canon EOS 10D Digital Camera. The only thing that I would say I wish it had is the ability to view the picture before actually snapping. I acutally won mine but I did price it after receiving and it is well worth it.
Summary: Great image quality, solid build and understandable menus for operation. A little slow in the display function. Buffer is still sizeable and I don't expect to lose any pics because of congestion. I like the CMOS sensor though I don't see a lot of difference between Nikon D70 and this camera as far as picture quality is concerned. I bought this camera used and noted that it has held up well and is sturdily made.
Excerpt: You can expect one of these battery packs to last 2 years under moderate to heavy use before it needs to be replaced. This is still my workhorse camera, mainly because I know it so well that I see no reason to spend more money on a new one, although a 5D Mark II would be a perfect upgrade. This camera is recommended as a secondary or backup for a professional photographer, or as an inexpensive quality camera for the student or enthusiast on a budget.
Summary: This is an excellent camera, with the heft and feel of a professional device. It is a bit dated now, with only 6.3MP, but I didn't buy it for billboard-sized pictures. My purchase was a IR converted camera as I wanted to experiment with IR photography without the hassle of a very dark filter over the lens. I am very pleased with the decision as with the conversion it is just like using any of the other cameras, only you get the IR image.
Summary: EOS 10D was our first DSLR camera. Worked great back then, and is still working fine. It will serve perfectly well as an entry to the Canon series digital machine world, a hobby photographer, or someone with no extra needs on image size, like printing. The camera creates 6 Megapixel images, that are good even for A4 size printing.
Summary: We were tired of our point-n-shoot, so we decided on a Canon EOS. After reading other reviews, we decided our most affordable option would be the 10D. It has an all-metal case, which is a great feature. It is only 6 megapixel, but plenty clarity for what we need. It also takes great pictures even when the subject is moving. Once we master all of 10D's great features and effects, we may bite the bullet and buy the newest EOS. Until then...
