Didn't get me a D60 last year!

1. Adjustable WB (2,800 ~ 10,000K
in 100K increments)
2. 10D seems to be built better
3. PC Sync
4. Price drop

BUT, I must say that the thing that stood out to me about the 10D is the incremental WB adjustment (2,800 ~ 10,000K
in 100K increments). Good Lord, why didn't Sony, Panasonic or Ikegami think of this for video. Granted I have been able to adjust my WB with either Warm Cards, Tweaking the camera control units while in the studio or creative WB off of objects in the enviroment of out doors shoots, but this function alone is revolutionary, in my opinion.

I do have one question for other Digital Shooters. And it is, how does your camera react to high Humidity. I am not talking stand out in the rain type, but the Canon specs list the new camera to work under condtions just above 32 degress - 104 degrees, and 85% humidity. I live in the Red River Valley. Very hot muggy summers. It is not uncommon to have 80-90% percent humidity and not a drop of rain.

Clint, the next generation will always be better so to me its not that big a deal (I have Fuji S2 anyway). It seems the manufactors have decided that the next generations might not necessarily need to be full frame CCDs for the "mass" market but instead a more feature full digital SLR. I (for one) would prefer a noise free - high ISO ability, AdobeRGB in JPG mode (D10 will have this), more options on the RAW convertor, better integration with Adobe's RAW convertor, etc.

On a side note, if you can wait a month (or so) without the digital, you could sell your D60 (if you had one) on eBay for $1500 right now and buy a D10 with no loss and you would have had a D60 the entire year.

Good point about humidity. One difference is not necessarily the camera -- but the media. If you're using a Microdrive remember that this this is a hard disk drive with moving parts and very small tolerances. If you're working outdoors in a humid climate and you move indoors to an air conditioned location, allow the MD to adjust before you try and download it. I'm not sure how much climate will effect solid state devices -- like CF cards -- but it will do things to the microdrive, and to digital wallets.
