Summary: I bought this camera to use only for astrophotography. I needed a camera that would let me capture a wide field of view. On my 430mm focal length telescope the Canon 20Da covers about 2º x 3º of sky as opposed to my other camera which covers .45º x .70º. Canon has a reputation for producing excellent cameras and the 20Da is no exception.
Summary: The camera is in great condition and came with everything that would have been provided had I bought it brand new. I love my new camera and am enjoying learning photography with it. It captures beautiful images and I am very happy with it!
Summary: Before I begin, I would like to say that I have used far better cameras than the 20D. I work as a reporter, and we are lucky enough to have cameras such as a 5D Mark II in our camera pool with lenses to match. I was torn between purchasing this model and going with a rebel model, possibly the XSi. I'm glad I went with this model, though, as features such as the top display panel are features that I have gotten accustomed to having on my cameras.
Canon EOS 20D 8.2MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)
6 September 2013
Summary: The add stated the camera was in good condition and used very little. When I opened the box I found everything sealed in its original packaging. This camera had never been out of the box. I couldn't believe it. It was a state of the art camera when it was first sold and I feel it still is. There are so many bells and whistles on it, it will take me years to learn how to use them all. I use it only for astrophotography through a telescope.
Summary: I am used to the arrival of my purchases being two or three days and not more than a week but when I got the camera which is in exceptional condition and the great bag and the items that came in it, the wait was well worth it. I got way more than what I paid for it. Great seller and great buy for me.
Summary: Really? A hundred and fifty bucks used? A REMARKABLE deal for a "starter" digital SLR. The flashes on these puppies start to stick after a while - so? Buy a $30 Speedlite on Amazon. Problem solved. Lots of features, nice picture quality. Buy one if you find one for even $250. These are really popular cameras. Get yours while you can.
Summary: Beautiful pictures! I got one for myself and for my mom. It's a little complicated for one who's never used one before, I suggest a thorough read through the manual and lost of experimentation.
