Wow, that's a pretty tall question. I like it, but have only started to play with my new one. I'm going to be putting it through its paces soon. Colors are better than the 10D. Way more control over final capture. Better sync speed than 10D. Larger image. RAW+JPG for real, not an embedded jpg.

Downside: louder shutter [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

I have a 10D and have shot a 20D...

There is a massive difference between the two....I like them both.....but the buffer speed is great on the 20D..ive had no problems with the color....it "feels right" in your hand....you can steady shoot as long as you dont go insane....if I had a choice....and money wasnt a option though I would go with the 1DS markII...but only if money wasnt an option.....go with the 20D....


Call Jason and Unique and he will set you up....

Pro: The 10D was a good camera, the 20D is everything good about the 10 and then some...

Con: No Spot Meter, Battery Life is not registered correctly with the grip, Yes you can trun the camera off by pullin on the grip (but you need to go out of your way to do it)

All in all, the camera is fantastic so far...

PS for the best white

No PS at all

PS to bring up levels

I like the camera... only one lockup... I think it has to do with battery power changes or spike...

I'm now up to about five thousand clicks on my 20D. It is pretty much better in every way when compared to the 10D...except the shutter noise take some getting use to.

Only minor complaint I have is with the battery grip. It just isn't as nice as the grip on the 10D. I seems a little squarer and bulky and doesn't fit my hand as nicely and the material and finish seems cheaper.

Other than that I'm all smiles

if you're shooting in the B&W mode on the 20D, does it matter if you shoot RAW or Large JPG? I mean, there's no RGB components, right? Or is something i do regularly and recreationally causing me to miss something obvious with this question? (i.e., rendering it a decidedly dumb question?)

If you shoot RAW, then the RAW image has all the data so you can develope the complete color image (it is not in B/W). The BW image is the JPEG companion file of the RAW file. So if you want B/W, directly from the Camera, you'll need to shoot either just JPEG, or RAW + JPEG. If you shoot just RAW alone, then you won't have a B/W image directly from the camera.
Cheers,
