    be like me, go on the 2nd-hand route!

    i got my 300d at $600 with kit lens in september this year in bns. it's a great cam for starting out. you can chk out my flickr pics.

    all my lenses are 2nd-hand. there are very good buys in bns. i am getting my 2nd-hand 100mm macro tomorrow.

    considering some Ls perhaps next year. hehe...

    I beg to differ. Pls check out the prices and condition before committing to the sale.

    Some guys are lucky, they got a good deal for a used item, use if for a couple of months, and then claim that they are the 1st owner and sell it at exactly the price they got it for.

    you beg to differ what? i did not say ALL buys in bns are good. it is obvious buyer must check before committing in any sale. any adult will know. must i put disclaimer in everything i write?

    even if you buy new equipment, you may still risk of buying grey set, or worst, demo set from the shop. regardless of new or used, buyer is responsible to check or trust the seller.

    eos 300d - some points for TS to consider

    pros
    1. cheap
    2. light
    3. takes low-budget efs lens
    4. availability of russian firmware hack to unveil hidden CF functions
    5. takes vertical grip BGE1 for improved ergonomics

    contra
    1. shutter release button is silver instead of black
    2. no choice of AI-servo AF or ONE_SHOT AF (i.e. the AF is determined entirely by camera)
    3. lack of quick-control-dial at rear of camera. instead there is a system of 4-way joystick styled controls - not ergonomic
    4. laggy start-up time and laggy shutter

    I don't even notice what color my D70 shutter release button is. I better go and check!

    its not funny. silver colour button on a black colour body is a stylistic error. needs to be gaffered up in black gaffer to blend in the colour.

    d70 shutter release button is silver colour as well.

    And how does the silver colour button affect the quality of the pics the camera takes? Speaking of gaffing? I saw this seller who wants to sell his DSLR which is practically all gaffered up from head to toe. Immediately turns me off, like the camera is broken and needs to be plastered with tape. What's the logic of this?

    why get so defensive when ppl dun agree to what u say

    It is subjective on what good buys are. Its hard to predict the lifespan of electronics stuff and there is always a risk when buying used items w/o warranty. So what u meant by a good buy when there is always a risk ? Any adult knows that too

    Newbies may also be mislead that they will get a better deal bidding for used items and rush into winning the bid, in fear of the missing out a great bargain.
    They may not bother to do ground research on how much difference a new one will be and regret or back out the deal later..

    Just want to share my views, not here to flame or gain anything

    thanks for stating the obvious again. ok ok since you so want it.

    DISCLAIMER FOR NEWBIES IN BUY AND SELL SECTION :
    It's hard to predict the lifespan of electronics and there is always a risk when buying used items w/o warranty. Please be informed any purchase new or old has risks - if you want lowered risks, buy new. If you are very careful, have a lucky streak or have balls to take risks and want good value and returns, sniff out some of the good buys in this section. Remember to check market price for new one first hor. Dont be dumb dumb need people to remind you such basic things wor.

    Please note that after these messages, you are on your own. You shoulder your own risks. No nannies are provided. No more obvious advice will be given also.


    Just want to share my views also and maybe write a few disclaimers, not here to flame or gain anything also.

    My first DSLR was a 300D... Then moved up to the 1DMKII and I still hold the 300D with high regard. The pictures come out well, especially most exposures being quite accurate.

    Cheers,
    Nick
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    very clever, like me. wahahaha...
    that's a good buy principle.
    every decision we make has risks (eg. farting in a lift), so if a person is prepared to take a little more than usual, he will find good buys in bns.
