Do you still shoot an "old" body?

In the past week I've gotten three comments from other photogs I've run into.

"...dang, how old is that?"

"...you need to upgrade. Want to try using my 5D MK2?"

"...COOL! A vintage DSLR?"

WTF? So what if I'm shooting an 8 year old 10D. It does what I want it to do, I'm attached to it and I can't afford a new, rooty-kazoot status symbol.

So how many of you out there are still using the older models?

20D--30D--XTI owner.

I use them for remotes, loaners or going into harms way--they are now throwaways

I have my trusty 20d that I bought about two months after that model first came out. Like you, mine does what I want it to but, I an finding that I am finally running into some limitations as my experience grows. Also like you, I cannot afford to buy a new body and imo, canon has not come out with one that I have to have yet. When they do, I am sure I will not be able to afford that one either.


If you try to fail and succeed, what have you really done??

Still shoot a lot of film using my mid 70's Canon EF camera and my 1985 Fuji gw690II rangefinder. You young ones think a 8 year old camera is old. Just signs of the use them and throw them away digital era.

Yep, still use my 20D, although it doesn't see quite as much use as my 5D.

I still shoot an XTi but am considering selling it and upgrading to either a T3i or 60D soon. Which one I get depends on what kind of Boxing Day deal I can find.

I don't know what you shoot but if the 10D does the job then thats all the maters.

20D, 5Dc, 1Dc - not retro; just happy with the results I get. Each gets used for different purposes, plus a suite of lenses that allows me to pick'n' mix.

I shoot with a 40D and a 5D, and my daughter shoots with my old 20D.

No complaints here...

I hear ya. Nothing better than an all manual ONLY camera! That's how us old timers learned about aperture and shutter speed. And our lessons took about a week to get the results back! :) There were no one hour photo places. And by todays standards even one HOUR is slow! :D

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.

So how many of you out there are still using the older models?

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.
