EOS 20 D Beginner shots (Sample)
I am new to SLR photography and have just picked up the 20D. If anyone is interested in the quality of shots the 20D is capable of, please look at my photos. I am not nearly a professional, so please don't be too critical :-) I will make a foliage trip to Upstate NY this weekend and I am really looking forward to the shots this camera will produce. I have been using a Canon S50 for quite some time now, but have really become interested in photography. Attachment:BKLYN_BRIDGE.JPG..

Thank you for posting the image. I am seriously considering the Canon EOS 20D. I am an amatuer but interested in " exploring" the world of SLR. What lens did you use with your EOS 20D? Secondly, could you give us more feedbacks regarding the camera? Thanks in advance..

I used the kit lens for the Brooklyn Bridge photo, but I have just picked up the 17-85mm lens. Take a look at one of the shots from my trip today. So far, I have had no problems with this camera. It is a huge step-up from my S50. It does have more features, but taking the time to get to know how to use them is definitely worth it. I am still experimenting, trying to get to know this camera.

It's my first SLR and I only have nice things to say about it. Attachments:.

Very nice I can tell the difference between the kit and your new lens. I got my EOS 20D kit this week!! I am a loving it. I'm still familiarizing myself with the camera. I bought it from Buydig online store and they shipped it to me the following day. I'm also thinking of getting the 17-85 lens Is it worth it? I plan on taking pictures this weekend...

Picture of Disney Center taken today in downtown Los Angeles. It was a hazy Sunday afternoon. Taken with my EOS 20D EF-S 18-55 kit. I am currently having problems with 'dirty' sensor. Im' actually taking it to the Canon Service Center tomorrow. I just got the camera last Wednesday!! Attachments:.

If you're happy with the Canon 18-55mm kit lens, great. If you're considering a new purchase, I'd recommend you stay away from that lens. I had one with my first digital Rebel (300D) and the edge sharpness and color fringing was so bad I took it back to the store. Please realize that the 18-55mm lens only costs (retail!) about $100. My guess is that Canon doesn't even make it, it's probably made at the lowest possible cost in China and re-branded by Canon. Many major camera manufacturers do this.

Even the vaunted Leica company has had Minolta make their cameras for them (but charged Leica prices!). I have the Canon 20D with the 17-85mm lens and am very happy with it. I put all new lenses through a corner and edge sharpness test and the 17-85mm was just as sharp at the corners as at the center even wide open, and I could see no visible improvement when stopped down (which is good)...

Kelley you could try manually focusing on the part of the scene that you want focused. Also set an aperture that gives you an exceptable depth of field (sometimes called "depth of focus"). It is possible that you are getting a correct auto focus only it's not where you want/think it is. And you are using an aperture that will not give you a deep enough focus to include what ever you want to be sharp. Try to use a smaller aperture setting (larger number) like F/8, F/16 and see if there is any improvement. Also the auto focus system will focus in on the closest object in it's coverage area.

Also some more detailed information of the scene you are trying to shoot would be helpful. Tim..
