What exactly is it that you don't like about it? I'm guessing it has something to do with the focusing. I'm so used to the "focus, then frame" style of shooting that it's hard for me to imagine anymore that there's something better. I know you can change the focusing point, but it's a pain in the ass.

Not that I haven't run into some problems with my 300D. My main issues now are:
1) You can only shoot 4 pics in a row in RAW mode. This makes derby photography, sports photography in general, and concert photography particularly difficult.
2) The small sensor. The cheapest full frame sensor digital camera right now is the 5D and it runs about $2500. Ouch. I want my full frame for my wide angle lens!
3) 6.3 megapixels just ain't hackin' it anymore. With 10 I would have more room to crop and still make large prints.

I'll probably get an XTi in the next year, but I drool over the 5D.

oh, sorry. left out the details. i've made the complaint before however. it's the noise when shooting in the dark. i'll look at an enlarged photo of someone's 300D or now the XTi, and they are so much "cleaner". and there's no easy way to fix it in photoshop.

my other gripe would be the speed of the capture, (which doesn't apply to this particular image) but I have a pal that bought a equivalent Nikon at the time we purchased this, and we took the same shot (at auto settings) side by side and his was a crisper, faster capture. granted, i'm no photographer. just a nut who takes a few too many photos. he may have had better lens going for him.

as for the focus. i leave it on manual for the most part. the little robot working the auto-focus seems pretty indecisive and can get on my nerves.

All this photography talk is nice, but has anyone else noticed that Cubby is dressed the same as Steve? Did they call each other? And why does Cubby look so happy and Steve look so sad? Trouble in paradise?

this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
