I've been using a Canon "loaner" 30D for the past few weeks and wish to share a few that I personally was pleased with. All photographed with the 100-400, no tripod or flash.

Snow eater


Fat from the cold



Head on curious



Cute in the cold (45 degree low light angle)



Cold feet and frosty moustache



Prepping for takeoff



Thanks for taking time to have a look. Cheers!

Like 'em all, especially # 1 with the Waxwing eating snow.

Looked at # 1 again...really exceptional capture, angle of bird, clarity of shot (those 30D Canon's are tremendous camera's, even at 8.2 MP), lighting..great shot.

Like the little powdering of snow...that's a display photo.

Beautiful Norm! I love the snoweater. Man, these Bohemians are beautiful! I'd love to see one of these sometime, but they don't make it out here apparently. Guess I'll have to move east.

The 30d they loaned you is working very well. I'm still contemplating moving up to a Mark series...probably a Mark II as I can't afford a III. But when I look at results from the 20d's and 30d's out there, I sometimes wonder whether the jump is worth it or not...decisions, decisions........cheers...Don

Thanks you all, it's going to be interesting to see how that Mark III performs.

great stuff, Norm... we don't get Bohemians out here, so it's nice to see them. love the second one, but the "snow-eater" is really top notch. and i don't think i've ever seen a chickadee puffed up that big!!

Don, i think you'd be hard pressed to get any better results than the 30D/40D will provide. the 1Ds models might, simply because of sheer megapixels and the full-frame sensor, but frankly, the 30D and 40D are good enough that you'd have a heck of a time seeing any advantage to the 1D except at very large print sizes. the big advantage of the 1-series is that they focus blindingly fast, and they're built a lot more ruggedly than the xxD's. save the money and get yourself more top-flight lenses! :G
