This was my firs DSLR and I was very excited to get it. It was amazing for its time. For a 3 megapixel camera, it took some pretty good shots.

I considered buying one but if I recall, back then it cost was about the same as the current price of the 5D MkIII. I waited two more generations and bought a 6 Megapixel 10D crop camera for the same price as what they're charging now for a 6D.

Have you got any images you could post? It would be nice to see some from that old timer :)

I had one and at the time it was a great camera. A practical digital camera for enthusiasts. I remember being amazed that I could take a picture and print it and have the print in my hands the same day. It used to take around a week with film.

This is the only image I currently have posted that was taken with it (I am almost sure)

I started with the $1,500.00 10D also.
However, I did own a D30 for some time as a back up. I did not shoot it often, as with the 10D it was not very compettitve. All the timings were so slow, it was glacial.

On that note I do still have a shoot the D60, whioch was right between the D30 and 10D, also with 6MP.
I converted it to Infrared and still enjoy it. Not quite as slow as the d30 but close. The 10D really changed a lot just with the handling improvements.

Ha - memories ... first DSLR, D30, sold it and bought a 30D, then years and years a 5DM3 (and 7D, just sold) and ordered the 7D2. Quite a difference ... not sure I can find any D30 images, but have an entire collection of 30D ...

At the time I was shooting with Oly E10's. I passed on the D30 and D60. But jumped ship with the release of the 10D. It was a game changer in the prosumer niche.

Taken this past July @ my wife's reunion. My 7d was down, the 40d I had died, so back to the trusty D60. Lighting sucked and had to use built in flash also. I was pleasantly surprised by the pictures in still produces.

I bought a used 10D when I had a Canon EOS 630 film camera and 3 lenses. I thought it would be a "Cheap" way to get into digital photography since I could use my EF lenses and didn't need to buy anything else. :D

Of course that was not the end of it and spent many thousands of dollars over the years.
Not exactly cheap! ;)
