Do you still shoot an "old" body?

First camera was the 3.3mp D30, now I shoot 5d mkI. I guess people still call the 5d old but it still stands as one of canons flagship careras. My 10d's shutter is dying but I was shooting that as well. I really like how simple the older cameras are compared to my 50d and t2i I used to have.

Too many unwanted features in the new ones. Video especially. I don't care how cheap it is to put it in there. They need to make one with and one without video. If they want to make them the same price then that's fine with me.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

I have a 10D as a backup to my old 50D now its still backup to my new 7D. After edits, I cant tell the difference between the 50D and 10D shots.

Just put my T2i down to buy a shiny new 5D. I've got no problem buying an older body. I'd love to grab a 20D to keep as a back-up. I also plan to grab a 1D Mark II so I have something a little faster in the bag.

The only reason I would not own a 10D is because it's not quite good enough at high ISOs for my use.

I had a 40D and 30D, and I wanted to upgrade to 5D but keep one as second/backup. I sold the 40D and kept the [older] 30D because I got more money selling the 40D. The 30D was 90% as good as the 40D was and I don't regret it. Besides, they have matching controls. :)

Before I had the 40D, I sold my Rebel Xti to get an [older] 20D as a companion to my 30D, which I then sold for the 40D.

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.

Still have my circa-1980 Canon F1 with the power winder and 50mm f/1.4 lens sitting on the mantle over the fireplace. I'd love to run a roll of film thru it but with age all of the body seals and the mirror damping cushion )which are apparently made out of some sort of foam rubber) have deteriorated and are crumbling. Canon will no longer service such old cameras so one of these days I need to find new seals if such things are even available and someone to go thru it. Not only do the seals need to be replaced but all of the pieces need to be cleaned out of the camera, its pretty much a mess inside.

OK, yah, my friend lives by those actuation counts. :D That's part of the reason he won't buy a Rebel because I think he said they are rated at 50,000 Actuation's... Who knows.

but I do hear what your saying about the other things too. My 40D came with a screwy shutter button. It took me pressing it down a few thousand times (with it off) to loosen up whatever was under there. Now it fires fine 90% of the time. Occasionally I have to jiggle the button to get it to fire. But it works fine for my usage.

It wasn't until I bought a battery grip that I knew it was just the button and not the camera because the button on the grip works fine.

Tell your friend he's wrong. T2i and t3i are rated at 100k.

In a time where everyone's P&S has video and all of the people I met who just bought their first DSLR, they keep asking me "wow how old is your camera? It doesn't even have video?!?!" lol.

I have a 40D. I guess its "old."

Shooting an XTi, just bought an L lens for it a couple months ago. Looks funny as heck with a big ass lens in front of a tiny little body but the images don't lie.

:rolleyes:

Ok, now that you got that rant off your chest, let's get to the OP and the original question....

Do you still shoot an "old" body?

I agree, I never understood the effort to make an issue out of such a non-issue item.

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. :)

That's pretty much all of my old DSLR's. Should I mention my Pentax K1000 as well? :lol:
