    My D30 still works and produces excellent output, too. I loved that
    camera. But once I got my Nikons, I sold it. I like the way the
    Nikons work even better, but I don't slobber over them or try to tell
    people that they rule...

    Photographers rule, cameras are dumb tools.

    Just a thought.


    PS Are you a Canon rep, or do you do this because you have some other
    attachment to the company?

    No, just a happy customer.
    But you know, for all the great publicity they get from me you would
    think they'd share the love and outfit me with a new 1DMKIII or maybe
    a 600 f/4 or a 85 f/1.2L II.

    I've probably sold more Canons than B&H.

    Hi Annika
    I'm a long time fan. I was wondering ... Many of the pictures you
    display indicate Aperture Priority (3). I use a 20D and frequently
    select aperture priority, but what does the 3 represent? Are there
    various choices under aperture priority?

    Toady alert!

  7. Yes, I agree with you.My sister has the canon powershot A2 (I think) and at
    only 2.2 MP it takes excellent photos.I have the Canon Pixma iP 4300 which
    is an excellent photo printer, an excellent document printer, and very
    economic with inks.

    No, there is only one Aperture Priority (Av) mode on the 20D.
    I shoot most of my pics using that since I usually want the fastest
    shutter speed at the aperture I select (usually wide open).

    Which program are you using to view the EXIF data?
    I believe that different programs label the values in different ways.
    Photoshop CS3 shows Av mode as "Exposure Program: 3" and Manual mode
    as "Exposure Program: 1" so maybe that's where the 3 comes from.

    I believe at least one camera made by the enemy has an "ISO Priority
    Mode." I'd like to see that feature incorporated into future Canon
    That way, I could set the lens wide open, choose my shutter speed and
    let the camera crank up the ISO if needed.

    See, referring to other cameras as "the enemy" makes people wonder
    where you're really coming from. Why is it that Nikon threatens you

    Don't worry, therapy is available. Sell your 20D and get some Nikon
    gear. Once you see it won't explode in your hands you'll have a
    better perception of reality. :)

    It right there in Pbase's Full Exif info:
    "Exposure Program | aperture priority (3)"

    The National Institutes of
    Health reported Monday that
    giving money to worthy causes
    stimulates exactly the same
    area of the brain that sex
    does. That explains why Bill
    Clinton does so much charity
    work. It's another way of
    cheating on Hillary.

    Hello, Bret:

    Why don't you simply >ask< Canon to "donate" a camera and/or lens, to
    you? Offer to do a thorough, online review of the equipment in question,
    and promise to post sample photos, also.

    If you're persuasive enough, you may even be able to con the company
    into allowing you to keep the hardware! :p

    Hello, Steve:

    Oh, Bret is probably just jealous that King Kodak based its
    now-defunct line of DSLR cameras, on Nikon bodies. ;-)

    Probably why there are so many FOR SALE signs posted in the lawns in
    Rochester, NY.

    Didn't they also do Canons?

    For a while. From what I recall, Canon opted out towards the end,
    and for the last Kodak DSLR body that used the Canon lens mount,
    Sigma actually provided the body, not Canon.

    Hello, Bret:

    That's because Kodak got stuck with using Canon and Sigma bodies,
    too. <g>
