Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Quality
A rugged magnesium alloy body provides the first clue that the EOS 20D is no ordinary camera. Canon's award-winning CMOS technology delivers outstanding image quality and 8.2 Megapixel resolution. The DIGIC II architecture drives blistering 5fps continuous shooting with a maximum burst of 23 frame JPEG images, class-leading colour rendition accuracy, quick start-up times and rapid display and zooming of images during in-camera review. JPEG and RAW files write simultaneously with no loss of performance.

Focus
9 auto focus points are carefully distributed across a wide area of the frame for fast, accurate focusing, even with off-centre subjects and particularly with 'rule-of-thirds' compositions.

Distance-linked flash
The E-TTL distance-linked flash algorithm takes factors such as lens distance information and ambient light readings into account for accurate flash metering, even in circumstances such as recomposed shots, or where high or low reflective objects appear in the frame. The camera is compatible with the entire EX-series Speedlite flash range. This includes the 580EX, which transmits colour temperature information for improved colour stability and auto zooms to match the camera's APS-C sensor size.

Lens mount
The EOS 20D is compatible with more than 60 Canon EF lenses, including Canon's EF-S lenses. Built with the EOS 20D photographer in mind, the EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM and EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM cover popular wide (approx. 16-35mm) and standard (approx. 27-136mm) ranges in the 35mm equivalent.

Full control
An extreme high (3200 ISO) setting extends the camera's wide 100-1600 ISO speed range. Both sRGB and Adobe RGB colour spaces are supported. Digital Photo Professional image processing software permits high-speed processing of lossless RAW files.

Connectivity
The EOS 20D's USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection enables fast download of images to the computer. PictBridge compliant, the camera supports direct printing to any compatible photo printer. It takes both CF and CF-II cards, including cards of over 2GB capacity.

Online sharing
Free membership is included to Canon's online CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, with 100 Megabytes of free storage space for online album storing and sharing. Users can upload images to the site and direct clients, friends and family to secure online 'albums'.

From my first purchase and experience of a digital camera, SLR or otherwise, I can honestly say that this one is excellent in all respects - especially if you're moving from decent ordinary kit. It's simple and intuitive to handle, especially if you're used to a "normal" SLR and if you like your SLRs heavy metal-style (like my old Olympus OM4Ti and Contax AX which I'll continue to use for colour and black and white slide film until a digital equivalent is invented). Despite being titanium, the EOS20D body was still a tad small (little finger off the grip) and light for my taste, so I added a BG-E2 battery grip, which solved those problems and enabled simultaneous two battery use and easier portrait shooting. Don't get the kit with the tacky, cheap, plastic 18-55mm lens though. Buy the body and put the saving and cost of a prime lens towards the superb f4 17-40 EF L USM. If you also fancy\need a bigger zoom, the f4.5-f5.6 100-400 EF L USM IS (image stabilisation)lens is superb too. I couldn't believe I could shoot decent images with that hand-held! There's lots of choice in image resolution but I'd personally opt for either RAW or highest definition jpeg - 60 shots on a 256mb CF card as opposed to 15 or so respectively. Get a Canon Speedlite 580EX flashgun and you're ready for just about anything. You also get 35 pounds each cashback with the 17-40 and 580EX plus a 256mb CF card with the camera from Canon by sending away/registering.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buying a Canon D20 from Marketplace 14 Mar 2005
By Phil_72
I have used this canon for about 4 weeks and am very happy with it. However, I would like to alert potential buyers that the 'new' sellers proporting to sell cheap D20s on marketplace are actually set to rip you off. It works like this, click on the 'buy this' link and you will get an e-mail from amazon saying that the transaction could not be completed. Then, if you contact the seller (as the sellers suggest) they will always tell you the same thing: They say " I have a contract with Amazon, but the payment system is not working at the moment. If you wnat this camera, e-mail me with your contact details and I will contact Amazon. Amazon will send you an invoice. However, you then pay me directly by Western Union." What then happens is that you get a fake e-mail proporting to be from Amazon. You pay the seller directly...and......no camera will arrive. And, you are not covered by Amazon's gaurantee, because you paid the seller directly. Its a scam, its all over Amazon, and they do not have the warnings posted up front. Will they let this be posted? Hmmm?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Semi-Professional Camera 14 Mar 2006
I purchased this camera 2 weeks ago. I was immediately impressed with the resolution, which was better than I expected. I have been so far mainly shooting in Medium resolution which is still large enough to overfill a 19" flat panel. The camera is particularly good at capturing inanimate objects, the colour tones are fantastic. The flash performs exceptionally well. I am an amateur photographer and there are a host of features I have not used before, however the camera is very easy to use in automatic / semi-automatic modes. I recommend this camera to anyone who is familiar with using a film SLR and wants to make a change to digital photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best option. 24 Sep 2005
I had a 300D and recently joined a local camera club to get more ideas. When I saw some of the shots from the 20D used a members to take a few shots, I was immediatly impressed with the handling and overall professional feel.
So, I have just bought my own and been shooting all week with it. I find it very easy to use, and am very impressed with it's speed, both start up time and FPS....if there is enough light, this camera is rapid...more than enough for sports photography.
I use the EFS 17-85mm as my everyday lens, and so far have been very impressed with the quality of images.
It's a camera that will suit all your needs and well.
I don't imagine I'll be changing this camera for some years to come.......even the new 5D does not scare me.
If you can't afford the 20D, the 350D is a very capable camera also (but requies the battery grip as body is small).

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the marketplace Sellers 4 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Do not and I repeat Do NOT buy from the sellers on the marketplace who claim to sell it super cheap. You will get a phishing email that purports to have been sent by amazon, and asks you to pay money directly to the seller.
I am surprised, amazon has not taken any action against these sellers, despite a complaint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Canon 20D first impressions 18 Mar 2005
I recently bought the 20D and have since took around 700 photos with this little gem. I am only using the standard 18-55mm lense at present with a 512mb Sandisk Ultra II card.
I have taken a number of photos in many situations. High light portraits. Formula One action (Melbourne GP) and low light landscapes.
On the whole I am extremely impressed with the quality of both the photos and the camera.
The camera itself feels right. Meaning the quality of the body and positioning of the controls is spot on and after a few minutes use you do not have to look at the control to know where they are.
In relation to the image quality I am most impressed with the standard sunlight shots at either close up or landscape type shots. The image is crystal clear with breathtaking colours. The Close ups are sharp with great focus and clarity.
Action shots are great even with the standard lense. Using 800Iso and only F4.6 I was able to get clear shots of an F1 car at 180mph+ down the main straight at Melbourne. This was assisted by the fantastic burst speed. I filled my memory card in one session easily (120photos at 8.2mp)
My only 2 negatives so far is the 9 point auto focus that sometimes seems to pick strange objects to focus on. Also photos taken in lower light where the flash is needed seem to be washed out at times. Both these two maybe my Newbie use of SLR cameras.
Overall I would strongly this camera to anyone who can afford it over the 300D or even those who want to upgrade there old 10D.
