    I just purchased a Digital Rebel and like the camera but I have noticed that
    the Shutter is fairly noisy and has a bit of a thump when taking a picture.
    I don't know if this is normal or not. I have the 35mm EOS Rebel body and
    it has virtually no shutter noise or thump?

    is this normal or did I get a bad camera?

    Found the answer to my own question!

    It was the pop up flash popping up!

    With my eye to the lens I didn't realize it was doing it by itself until I
    played with it quite a bit!

    You've got to watch that flash. I can't help but thinking it has the
    capability of hurting someone. Mine scared me enough the first time it
    popped up that I almost dropped the thing.

    The mirror/shutter seems kind of loud on the DRebel to me personally, but I
    can't honestly say I've ever experienced camera shake/blur that I could
    blame on the shutter. Since the camera does such a good job with low light
    however, I do find myself often trying to handhold shots I really shouldn't
    expect to be able to capture.

    For what it's worth

  5. No MLU either, fortunately with Bayer interpolation it really doesn't matter.

    After a year of owning a 10D, I decided to play with the fully-automatic
    "green TV screen" mode. I had a visored hat on, which I usually reverse
    for flash photography (not for hip-hop style), and I took a shot and the
    builtin flash banged against my visor repeatedly until I took my finger
    off the shutter button. Scared the crap out of me. The camera said "OS
    error", and I rebooted it.
    The loss is real. I can hand-hold my Sony F707 at 3/efl (equivalent
    focal length), and without IS, only about 1/efl, without a chance of
    significant blur. It's almost like losing the IS benefit.

    I really wish I had a camera body to use my sharp Canon lenses on that
    was as still as my F707.

    Wrong, fool. You can see sub-pixel motion blur on bayer cameras.

  9. Blur within the blur. How interesting.

    No MLU = amateurs only

  11. People in Canon formums are reporting that the 10D's mirror is prone
    to falling out, hopefully the cheaper rebel has a somewhat different

    People in all forums are reporting that Preddy's brain has fallen out.

  14. The person posting under the name of George or Georgette Preddy (and
    other pseudonyms) has an ungrounded but zealous faith that current
    implementation of the Foveon chip is superior to all other chip
    technologies. He will cite portions of reviews to ostensibly support his
    claims, and will repeat, ad naseum, complete lines of out-of-context
    material, as well as manufacturing some pure bull manure.

    Moreover, "Mr." "Preddy" has claimed to be a photographer (pro!), but
    cannot bring himself to post a single picture with EXIF info that he
    shot himself, in spite of repeated requests and challenges to do so.

    Apparently he loathes anything related to Canon and loves everything
    about Sigma cameras and lenses. His "claims" may be ignored, and he is
    doing Sigma, and anyone related to the Foveon chip, no good at all by
    arousing ire, increasing the N/S ratio, and generally spamming this
