Do you have the pro version or the standard?...cheers..Don

Hi Don, I went with the professional one, it's 16 bit vs 8 bit. I think it's an absolutely wonderful plug in! :-)

BIF shots seem to be as easy as ABC here, but this fallacy falls apart quickly when one tries it outdoor on their own. Terrific shots. An inspiration to try out something of my ownon a sunny Saturday or Sunday.

Thanks VP, Hung, Leung! It is fun shooting BIF's. Still need lots of practice. Now the bad news. Had to send the 30d back. Kept freezing up and going dead. So the store said they'd replace it. Must have got a bad unit. Hope this doesn't recur with the next new body.....cheers...Don

Don, not that it is my business, but for not much more money, you could upgrade to the 40D and get a very very nice setup. The 30D is nice as well... I have a friend that was just contemplating buying one or the other and he was thinking originally the 30D because of the price, but for really only a few hundred more bones he got the 40D.

Don, I also wondered why you bought the 30D as opposed to the 40D, there is SOOOO much difference between the two, I have seen some posts taken by the 40d and it seems to be a really fantastic machine, almost in the league of the 1D series.

Might be worth your while to investigate -from a buddy in SA:G

Hi Jake and Mike.

Yes, the 40d sounds like a great machine, but for the $400 I saved, not including the $150 rebate I'm going to receive, I thought the 30d would suit me just fine. It autofocuses very fast and very accurately, and suits me for what I'm trying to do. I'm not even that familiar with the camera yet, but have gotten some results that have surprised me. I'm going to put the money I saved towards a battery grip, and another L lens....cheers....Don

Of course, there will be the 50D coming out in the not so distant future:G:G
