24.10.2004

well, view from our window to our terrace!

Thanks to everybody who commented and give me some tips for selling my 300D and getting the 20D!
Well, now it's the hell for me! I really don't know what to do? From one side I love to have it
(Unfortunately I am a man who loves always to have the newest toys) and from the other side I am
thinking that I am very pleased with the result out my 300D!
The other problem is that there are some Pros who are not very pleased with the performance of the 20D.
Reading some bad experiences (Focus) in dpreview.com forums. It was almost the same problem and posts in forums
with the 300D. There were lots of people who weren't very pleased with 300D, but I found my self that's a
very nice camera and have never had problems with it. The reason could be that I am not a pro and
can not see the detail problems.

anyway, let see what I'll decide!
cheers

You have one of the best gallery in PBase IMHO. There's no reason selling 300D I think, with results like these :-)

No problems with this shot. As a matter of fact, haven't seen any problems with your 300d shots. Tough decision.

Nice

Beautiful B@W shot. I love the framing and lighting!
Guest 24-Oct-2004 18:26
You must make the decision yourself, argishti. I sympathise with your dilemma
though - I too am a sucker for the "latest photographic toys". :) Don't forget
that you don't *have* to do anything immediately - you can also postpone your decision until you are sure what to do.

very treatment and framing ; it's artistic

Schöne s/w Aufnahme und sehr gut passender Rahmen. Very good work Argisthi.
Guest 24-Oct-2004 16:53
Wow! This one is different and I think it´s perfect in BW... Very well done!
Guest 24-Oct-2004 16:52
Tough decision to make, for certain. My observation is that every camera that ever came out had "reported focus problems," but many have been quite successful with that same camera. I say go for it, and expand your learning process. Since I have the 10D, I'm going to skip this round, and wait for the next cycle in 18-24 months, otherwise I'd go for the 20D.

Yes, Argishti, decisions like this are very challenging!
I hope - what ever you decide to do - will turn out to be the right one!
Probably both cameras have their pros and cons - and you seem to be positive thinking and to make the best out of the pros!
... another beautiful picture!
Have a nice Sunday evening!

Nice B&W shot!! I like the frame!! Well done.
Gayle P. Clement24-Oct-2004 14:00
This is very well done. The framing is a nice touch.

Give it another year and there will have a 30D or 5D or so. If you have money to spend for new toys buy some L lenses rather than Sigma and that way you will always enjoy excellent glass with whatever body tempts you.
Decisions, Decisions.

The artist counts more than the camera (but a nice camera doesn't hurt ...) Nice shot!

A tough decision indeed. Since I think your shots are always excellent I would be asking for time to give this new camera a trial before purchase.
Love what you have done with this Argishti. The frame is fantastic.
Karen Stuebing24-Oct-2004 11:38
Judging from this shot, you are not having focus problems with the 300D.

Excellent detail and nice b/w.
