Hi all, I bought a Canon 10D on the net yesterday,sort of an impulse buy but I have been looking into buying a camera to back up my 50D for a bit of wedding work.

Has anyone experience with the 10D and do you think its good enough for the purpose I bought it? (Should have posted this before I bought it I think)Thanks

I hope you didn't pay a lot...apparently there were focusing issues. You'd better read this...

If you are using a USM Canon lens and the flash focus assist it will be fine as a backup.
IQ has always been nice but the AF was always hit and miss.

There is nothing basically wrong with the 10D. Less pixels and lower available ISO are the two biggest drawbacks. But unless you are going to be making very large prints in low light conditions, it will do the job. I have a 10D and it continues to take good images. Go ahead and enjoy!


Equipment list - According to the wife - "how many more lenses do you need? Yet another camera?"  ???

One other thing to keep in mind, if you have any EF-S lenses (don't know) they will not work on the 10D. Whether it's a good backup depends on the body itself and how much usage it's had.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

I didn't have any focusing issues with mine, the buffer is slow to clear but shouldn't cause a problem with weddings

Paid 114 euro, about 150 dollars I think, I hope mine is in the 2% but think I'll be happy to manually focus.

I realise it cant use the EF-S lenses, will use 85/50/35mm not L series lenses. It will be mostly for friends so hoping they will suffice

thank you all for the very quick responses and info
