these functs are the same for 10D. go to canon's website and download the user manual for 10D (PDF format). the manual will explain wat these functions are.

the 300D is a strip down version of th 10D, and what canon did was disabling lotsa 10D functionality via the firmware.

The Hack firmware re-enable majority of the functionality that is permitable within the restriction of the strip down hardware of the 300D.

I think this is really a stupid marketing thingi, cos since canon is already putting in such cost of material in the 300D that permits the functionlity, from consumer point of view, practically pointless disabling things tat would pass value to consumer... but then again... they are trying to protect the 10D's sales... money suckers :angry:
