go for a 10D or 20D?
« on: October 06, 2004, 09:44:23 am »

[font color=\'#000000\']Interesting.

But for the few hundred more I'd still take the 20D. It's a large improvement over the 10D.

[font color=\'#000000\']a friend of mine said (after one week with 20D): I'm selling my strobes, 1600 and 3200ISO is the way to go!

Obviously he won't actually sell them but you get the idea. It's a great camera if only a bit too loud. I'm picking up my own tommorow[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']I'll chime in as well.  I have over 1000 frames through my new 20D and it works great.  It is much faster than the 10D - instant on, instant review, 5 FPS, it writes to the card much faster, it's lighter, has fewer parts (almost 100 they say) and costs the same as the 10D did last month.  

Plus, you have the benefit of several new EF-S lenses that will not work on the 10D including the much anticipated 10-22mm, ultra wide angle.

Regarding prints - I've gone 20"x30" with a 10D file (good clean image, taken with "L" glass) and it is tack sharp.  I would assume that with a clear, sharp file, you could go 24"x36" and still have outstanding print quality with the 20D.  That's poster sized.

It's a no-brainer - go grab yourself a 20D!

[font color=\'#000000\']Hi

I’ve just finished saving up for a 10D and now the 20D is out. Can anyone who’s got a 20D please tell me if the image quality is noticeably better ie noise and colour? If so when is this visible. If I make an A4 image on my photo Epson will I see any difference? What about if I go round to my friends and use their Epson 1290's or 2100's and run off some A3's or A3+ prints. I plan to shoot still life and landscape and would sometimes like to make a large print (if I get a great shot!!) By using interpolation software(Genuine Fractals) what extra size do you think I can get with the 20D over the 10D? Is the 20D really worth the extra cash.


Many thanks

[font color=\'#000000\']While I agree the 20D is an improved camer; Dell Computer is offering the 10D still today at a discounted price of $1189.00.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']Just tested a 20D yesterday -- final images are almost as good as a 1DMKII -- very close.  IMO this is WAYYYYYYYYYY better than a 10D can do.

Saving $300 to buy a 10D without a lens over the 20D with a lens makes ZERO sense IMO.

But this is my .02 only,

[font color=\'#000000\']I've seen dozens of posts or more on Fred Miranda's site. If I may summarize, those with a 10D and a 20D and actually use them daily, almost ALL seem to say what Michael is saying.

However, there seems to be a problem with the 20D locking up and some have had a serious problem with the firmware update released by Canon.  

IMHO, your question should not be a 10D versus a 20D, but when to get a 20D.  You may want to wait a little while and see if the problem subsides. Or just get one now, and if it has the problem, send it back.  Either way, a 20D will not be a bad investment![/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']My two cents, for what it's worth.

I usually don't shoot raw files often, mostly jpgs for high school sports--it's great to have a camera again with a 5 fps capability (after using a d60 and 10d for the past couple of years).  It really is a great camera, and any issues with firmware will have to be resolved soon, if Canon wishes to keep its edge on the market and reputation.

Definitely a dynamite camera--as others have mentioned, it focuses noticeably faster and in dimmer light.  Definite advantages right there over the 10D, which I have used extensively (and still own as my backup).[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']I have to agree with most everyone else who has posted. 20D is the way to go, all around a better camera. Especially if your like me and shoot in alot of low light. I was never a fan of 10D AF in those conditions, 20D AFis much better in this regard. Plus 5fps is handy when needed. Image quality is what I have always wanted but couldn't afford, until now :-)[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']I have had my 20D for about three weeks and still have hardly used it. However, already I am really impressed. It is small and light. It will take the EFS lenses, plus it has all the other advantages that everyone has mentioned and the image quality is really very good. In fact, if you really do not need to print very large (with all the cost implications associated with this), it should be all the camera you need right now. Forget the 10D, I do not regret selling mine for a second.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']10D's are no longer available.

The 20D has higher resolution, lower noise, faster autofocus, and faster  frame rates.

Why is there even a question?

[font color=\'#000000\']Canon's 'digital' lenses work on the 300D and 20D but don't fit the 10D.  Apparently they can be 'modified', but ....[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']Well,
what the others seem to miss is that the difference between 1600 and 1200 EUR (don't know tha dollar prices) might be a big difference to you (since you "just finished saving up").
If you cannot or can hardly afford the 20D then don't get it.
But yes, it's better in all aspects except for sound.
So if you have the money: 20D.
