I know what you meen. I have the Rebel and the 30d and the amount of clicks between them is huge. With the 350d I hardly get to 1000, with the 30d 4000 easily. The batteries stay onboard untill they are completely dry. When I charge the batteries from the rebel halfway, they run dry faster. By the way in case of the 30d all extras (like viewmode after the picture is taken etc.) is turned on, in stead of the rebel they are all turned off.
Greetings,
Alain,

Back to the original question. I would say image quality at any ISO, 10 fps and weathersealing.

I like how if you look at the grip area at the front near the bottom and count in 4-5mm just around the curve where you'd probably have your little finger there is part of the texture there that looks like a horses head.

With my old film Rebel, I once went over 1 year on a single battery - like 20,000+ shots.

Amen brother.

Airshow shots, was 38.5GBs (3002 shots) and still showing 60% left.

This battery is amazing. I was considering getting an extra just in case, but after that shoot, I thought twice.

I have a 40D that has an infinite number of shots on a single charge of its battery?! :rolleyes:

(Have I noted that I have not charged the 40D battery for the first time, and that I am using the battery from my 20D, which is how I am achieving this impressive statistic (er, lie)
