No not my weapon of choice, the 300D itself, but the content of the 300D forum on a certain leading photography site. Some recent examples.
A guy who claims to have taken 12,000 pictures with his in just 6 weeks of ownership. (OK, allowing time off from shooting for things like eating, sleeping, commuting, working, contributing to on-line discussions etc I recon that's about 1 picture every minute. )
The continuing myth that by using the center focus point, you get spot metering. (you don't - the meter biases toward the active focus point to just make sure that the part of the scene is within the dynamic range of the sensor)
The belief that Canon will somehow 'uncripple' the camera with a firmware update to get all those lovely missing features from the 10D. For goodness sake, just buy a 10D if Mirror lockup is soooo important!
Someone else thinks that the auto focus point selection an read your mind and changes the selected focus point accordingly. Now eye control focus is great, but telepathic control is something that's going to fox those Nikon guys for years!
Then of couse there's the "I bought a 300D, it was rubbish, so I took it back and changed it for an Sony 828, which was also rubbish, so I took that back and pre-ordered a Nikon D70". Yeah, cool, what a dude you are. Just a slight problem. If you can't take a half decent pic with a 300D, what makes you think you can with a Nikon?
And it goes on. Come on guys, it's just a camera. Go and learn to take photographs. It's only shutterspeeds and apertures at the end of the day.
