    Hi Guys,

    Have just popped into Photo Continental and had a chat to one of the
    guys there. Have it on good authority that there will be a
    demonstration model 300D floating around the place next week.
    Apparently the Canon rep will actually be in there with the camera
    after midday on Saturday - some big presentation at 12.30. Anyone in
    and around Brissy might be interested. I already have a deposit on mine
    but I'll probably head down anyway for a stickybeak. :dD

    just came back from it.. basically the Canon rep explained the
    technology behind it (digic, cmos, etc), the advantages, showed
    the camera's controls, and let us have a go at it while fielding
    questions from everyone.

    (who caught the young girl's questions about how many images the
    camera can store? seems like the wrong camera for her! ehe)

    stock's coming in on the 1st, but PC says it'd take a week before
    I'd be able to get my hands on one.

    Had a look at the 10D too, feels quite a bit more solid.

  5. 300D <-------- Overhyped just like Collingwood in a Grand Final.

    :) Yes, it can be amusing when there's the odd question that comes
    from someone that really knows nothing about digital cameras - but at
    the same time it's really a big boon for digital photography. That
    someone can obviously be that excited and interested in a product that
    they know next to nothing about, yet who will perhaps buy the camera is
    fantastic. As long as it doesn't sit in a cupboard for five years, if
    this person experiments with the camera, becoming more and more
    creative and knowledgable about the camera - it's really what
    photography is all about. Bring on the stupid questions I say~!

    That's true I suppose.. I guess I just come from a background where
    I wouldn't buy anything I'm not familiar with, especially if it
    costs a lot of money! It's a pretty nice first digital camera to have,
    though. Actually, make that veeeryyyy nice! My first was a Kodak DC50.
    Long shutter lag, awful color, expensive PCMCIA memory, no LCD display,
