Hi.
This post is a total waste of time so don't read it!
Still reading? Then maybe like me you have seen some posts with people wondering if they should get a xxD, but worried that it's too big/heavy compared to an xxxD. But now there is proof, yes undeniable proof, that the xxD is NOT too big...

Behold, A 3-year-old girl shooting a 40D with a 24-105. She can even chimp one handed! Although she does find it a bit unwieldy and prefers the 350D with 18-55 kit lens.

(Ok, she can shoot but her composition sucks. I think it's because she doesn't understand fractions so all that "rule of thirds" stuff is over her head)

If a noob like this can shoot a 40D I guess I really do need a 5Dii. :)
Cheers

aww... that's cute.

Chimping seems to be an innate ability. Even kids do it.

I'd imagine that camera would be like us holding 40 pounders to take a picture, ha.

My 10 year old loves my 40D and will not use the little P&S I bought for the kids. He can handle it well. As for the 5D2, I use that one. :) It's something you have to decide if you can afford, but don't be surprised if your kid says, "Why can't I use that one?" ;)

Cute pics, my 13 yr old daughter rarely uses the P&S i got her for xmas, when she goes out to shoot in the back yard, she immediately puts on the 55-250 and puts the nifty fifty in her pocket, guess what she wants for her birthday......

I remember being like that as a kid, when I was 12, my dad got me my Yashica FX-3 for school. "But Dad, why can't I use your Canon AE-1 Program?"... "cuz you're not ready for it yet."

I showed him.
