I get this question at least twice at every wedding, “why you choose to go with the canon XTi (400D) over the canon 30D?”
here is a good comparison list for all you camera enthusiasts.
EOS 30D Advantages:
5 fps burst
Viewfinder is better
Interface is better (Joystick + 2 Dials)
Longer Battery Life
Slightly less noise at high ISO = slightly better prints at high ISO
EOS 400D Advantages:
Slightly more megapixels = slightly better for large prints, except at high ISO
Next-Gen LCD is bright enough for use under direct sunlight (unlike 30D)
Dust Reduction doesn’t eliminate the need for manual cleaning, but does reduce its frequency
The $350 price difference between 30D & 400D could be spent to upgrade lenses
Other +/- Differences:
30D body is sturdier, heavier — if you prefer that.
400D body is lighter, more compact — if you prefer that.
30D status settings split on 2 screens, 400D dumps everything in one screen.
Fake Advantages of the EOS 30D:
Fake ISO 3200 (it’s just software emulation…)
Fake 1/3 steps ISO sensitivity (again, it’s just software emulation…)
Those are the differences, and it’s up to you to decide which camera fits your needs better.
The 400D size fitted me much better therefore leading to better composed pictures.
I believe the lens matters more than the camera and i only buy top of the line lens.
just received this email from mitch, it is so funny.
“The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase in plan that would become known as “Euro-English”.
In the first year, “s” will replace the soft “c”. Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard “c” will be dropped in favour of “k”. This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards have one less letter.
There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome “ph” will be replaced with “f”. This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.
In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where! More komplikated changes are possible.
Governments will enkourage the removal of Double letters which have always Ben a deterent to akurate speling.
Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent “e” in the languag is disgrasful and it should GO away.
By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing “th” with “Z” and “w” with “v”.
During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary “o” kan be dropd from vords kontaining “ou” and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl.
Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.
Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas. “
