I'm a brand, spanking new XSi/450D owner and have one quick question:

For purposes of downloading photos from the camera, is there any reason to use the utility provided on a CD with the camera rather than iPhoto (I'm a Mac user)? I'm used to iPhono and all of my other 5000+ photos are cataloged there.

I'm not talking about RAW photos -- just regular jpgs.

Thanks.

Argelius,
I have a Canon 20D and I've been unloading using iPhoto for about 2 years.

I mainly download RAW photos - however JPEG should work just fine.

Thanks!
That's pretty much what I figured.
Downloading my first "roll" now...

Hi Argelius,

I've just moved the post down as you had posted in the point and shoot section rather than the dSLR section.

Ugh...certainly didn't realize that. Guess I was too excited to have my new (SLR) camera....
