Default 300D or 10D

Hi all,

Please excuse for this question but I would lke to have your

I'm a amateur/beginner.

I would like to buy a good digital camera and keep it at least 2

Over here 300D kit is 1120 Euro
10D kit is 1270 Euro

I allready own a 4MP camera but sometimes I'm not satisfied with the results.

I can sell it easly and put some more on it to buy an EOS.

Which one I have to go.... 300D or 10D.

Every where I go I want to carry it and take a lot of pictures.

I allready have 3 ea of 256 MB Lexar 12X CF type1.

It's sounds like if there's not much of a price difference then you should get the more fully-featured 10D! However for ease of use and compactness (also lighter) the 300D may be better...

Which one suit you more, and what is in the 10D kit? You have to compare the total cost with lenses for both cameras... (in the states the difference is almost double)

The 10D is solidly built like the EOS3. the 300D is a plastic lightweight like the old 500n. Try both but I think if you don't mind the weight go for the 10D. The lump of glass in front of the body also makes a big difference to the weight. :lol: 8)

If I had to guess, the 10D you're talking about does not include a lens while the 300D does. I'd also be willing to bet that there is a little price gouging going on these days with the 300D. The retailer I bought from raised their prices shortly after I placed my order. The 300D is proving to be a very popular unit.

If you truly are a beginner, I think the 300D would be enough for 2 years. It certainly will not lose a ridiculous amount of value in that time and you'll learn whether or not you need all the extra features in the 10D. To my mind the 300D (Rebel in my case) is more than enough camera for me and I was shoorting 35MM SLR film back in the 1970's. Certainly it is more camera than what I learned on.

Then again, if money is no object, the 10D would be the way to go
