My Son is still using my original first ever 2003 Canon DSLR Eos Digital Rebel with Kit lens EF-S 18 - 55 mm

I still have the original invoice.... $1300.00 including taxes.

I'll be handing down my Rebel XT to my daughter this Christmas.

Its funny with technology. "Old" is the function of how many versions the manufacturer chooses to pump out, regardless of age. iPhone 1 is old only because we're up to iPhone 4s. lol The 7D, will be too old for many, when the next version comes out. My 20D is fine for me. And I'd still be using my Canon 10s Film camera, if getting and developing the film were easier.

I'm shooting with a 5D. I went back in "time" by switching from a 60D. I personally prefer the images that come out of the 5D more than when i owned the 60D.

I have an original digital Rebel that I lend to persons starting out in photography, a 10D converted to IR and a daily user 30D. They work, the pics are great and I am still the weak spot in the whole thing! :-)


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

Actually, a good joke would be...

I'm still shooting and watch what you say about my body!!! It may be old but it can still climb hills faster than some younger people I've seen. :lol:

No joke. I took a pace walking class (required PE class) and all of the younger students in my class (I'm talking recently graduated HS) couldn't keep up with my 45 year old butt! I left them all in the dust pretty much.

My 10D gets more action than my 7D, 5D and 5DMKII. I leave it sitting around the house ... on the kitchen table, book case or coffee table ... so it's handy getting a few shots of my dogs (6+ adult Labs and 13 puppies). The 10D seldom leaves the house, that's what my other cameras are for but even at that, there are times I just grab the 10D when I feel like bringing a camera with me.

5DMKII, 5D, 7D ... my serious cameras! 10D ... my fun camera ... even let my 5 yo granddaughter play with it!

10D is STILL a very worthy camera!

edit: OH, speaking of old? I still on occasion bring out my Sony Mavica FD-91 floppy disk digital camera for a few laughs. My younger nephews get a kick out of the sound of the floppy disk in the camera working. Hey, for a .8mp camera, it's not bad and has a great zoom!

simple answer is that it isn't the age of your equipment, it's how well you use it that matters.

My 40D is pretty much my every day camera too. It's an awesome body. I grabbed my 5D MII this morning to get a shot of our winter village we finished last night and wanted it a little tighter but couldn't get in closer because I was already to close. Maybe the 1.6 Crop will do me better tonight. :)

I've been using a nikon FM and manual lenses most often lately. Do those qualify as OLD? lol

Your 10D is young enough to be the FM's son :)

My 30D still holds a place in my heart.

Makes me release how far bodies like the 7D have progressed.

I regularly shoot with my Canon F1n.

Probably a body older than most people on this forum! ;)

When I want a little more modern I bring out the EOS-3.


.

I got one of those, along with a bunch of other FD gear (TLb, AT-1, etc). I've not had it out in a while though. By the time I worked up the courage to try to sell it, it was worth so little I decided to keep it. Lotta great pics rolled outta that camera, and it works as well as it ever did.

I think that is what some folks forget - it takes pictures as well as it ever did. Newer cameras don't necessarily take better pictures - but they (may) make make it easier to do so.

The only reason I walked away from them (and I was late in doing so), wasn't the functionality, but the move from film to digital. I'm still trying to fill in gaps that I have filled with FD lenses.
