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.
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...
Summary: The Canon 10D was my first digital SLR. I have always had A soft spot for it. Not only because it was my first but also because it takes great pictures. When you hold the 10D in your hand it feels very rugged and strong. There A perfect choice for someone who wants to seriously get into photography and not spend a ridiculous amount of money. I am writing this on 11/20/2010 and both my 10D's work great and are 10 or more years old.
Summary: This camera body is deal for someone who's looking for 6.3 Meg DSLR body. Overall picture color balance & exposure were very good. There were some focusing drift in low light and the sharpnest of pictures taken were very good but could be better. Of all the digital cameras I've ever use, I still think nothing beats my 1970's vintage nikon F1 & F2 film camera.
Summary: I purchased the Canon EOS 10D DSLR as my entry into digital photography. Previously I had been shooting with a Canon EOS 3 Film SLR. There isn't a direct comparison between the models as the EOS 3 is more a pro level camera than the 10D, this is evident in the 10Ds inclusion of an on-board flash.
