What we have learned:

1. Some big fish don't realize the small dimensions of their pond. ;)

2. Some people have had very bad experiences with Canon customer service. :(

3. Some people have had very good experiences with Canon customer service. :D

4. Some people have problems with their Canon gear. :cry:

5. Most people do not have problems with their Canon gear. :cool:

6. Nikon has recently improved their DSLRs.

7. There is much anticipation, speculation, and misinformation about how Canon will "respond" to point 6. :rolleyes:

7a. There is no need for speculation and the spreading of misinformation, as Canon will eventually "respond," and only then will we know anything for certain.

8. Some people seem overly concerned about how cameras from Company "A" that they don't own, and probably never will own, perform compared to cameras from Company "B" that they also don't own, and probably never will own.

9. The people described in point 8 will never be happy with what they have for very long.:cry:

10. We all need to log off and go take some photos. :D

Very true. A standing ovation for you~!

I don't like point 7a. It seems to annihilate 80% of the reason for existance of forums like this one.

Well, after selling my 400D and buying a 40D, you guys are scaring the crap out of me! I decided to move up in the canon world and get a camera with more options and better control over my pictures. I've been second guessing myself since I started reading this thread. If the people who have canon's aren't happy with them, why are they still using them? They should just sell them and go get the Nikon they like so much.

You don't have enough posts to absorb this thread ;):p

LOL, jk..

Seriously, don't mind this thread too much. There is a certain group that has taken part here because of particular reasons. I'm sure you don't fall into this category and if you're happy with your gear, then forget this thread and move on as a happy camper :)

First rule of participating in an equipment forum:
The camera currently out needs improving.

Second rule of an equipment forum:
The grass always looks greener on the other side.

The 40D is a very nice piece of hardware but it is not perfect. There are other cameras out there that address some of the shortcomings of the 40D but they too are not perfect and have their own shortcomings.
:):)


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

^^^ Ditto... there are ~250,000 other threads on this forum in the photo sharing section from Canon owners who are generally happy. Not to discount the AF issues addressed here, but you're specifically reading a thread about problems. Every brand has them.

Why is this thread still here? These type of posts always get moved to the 'talk about photography' discussion. Perhaps the ax is not yet sharpened.

That is so cool! ( And the photog is Finnish ) :)

But how is that done? Is there a tutorial somewhere? I have done those myself in the past, but i can't do it 180 high, and it seems impossible to stich together images from 10-20mm.:evil:

This is one of the crispest descriptions, http://services.manfro​tto.com/303SPH/ (external link) .

There are different heads available from different manufacturers. I use a mix of the Really Right Stuff and Manfrotto parts.

Canon's ETTLII with the 580ex II is crippled also. Canon cannot explain why the 580ex II all at once will not fire (on bracket or hotshoe) and you have to take the flash off the camera and put it back on to fire again...that is really bad when it happens when you are photographing the processional.
