    My new Canon 30D just arrived late last week.

    I was just testing out some of the features and took an alright snapshot of one of my boys.

    I'm curious why you would buy the 30D which has 8 megapixels for $1100 when you can get the RebelXTi which has 10 MP for only $800?

    I have an old 6MP model and I am really tempted to upgrade.

    Easy.

    More control. It felt better, the white balance comp. controls, low noise, and the photos I've taken with a friend's 30D look outstanding when using low-light lenses.
    Plus, the XTI is tiny. Impressive that they can fit a good camera in that size but I felt like I was holding a junior's camera. It wasn't comfortable.

    Mike,

    You're going to want the best white-balance control you can get, what with all the indoor-ice shooting you do.

    They are both great cameras, as for the extra cost on the 30D, here some of the differences between the two:
    The 30D does 5fps where the 400D does 3pfs, it has the rear dial and the multi-controller (very handy for quickly selecting AF points), the top ISO rating is 3200 as opposed to 1600 for the XTi, the 30D has a larger penta prism (which means a brighter viewfinder), the max shutter is 1/8000 sec as opposed to 1/4000 sec for the XTi, and (this one might be a biggie for hockey pics) the 30D has spot metering. Also, with the smaller pixel pitch of the XTi will give you more noise compared to the 30D (5.7 µm on the XTi vs 6.4 µm on the 30D).

    As for the ergonomics (which are highly subjective), the XTi is smaller and lighter, the 30D larger and heavier and has a more robust feel to it.

    Definitely. I'll post some photos I took with my friend's 30D for the last Kings home game. Good snapshots.

    ValleyFan, thanks for reminding me. Spot Metering is also a big + for the 30D.

    How'd you get an SLR into Staples? The one time I tried, they wouldn't let me in even though my lens was only 3" (when locked in 28mm).

    A couple pics I shot today while cooking dinner.


    This is a picture of some olive oil floating on top of some water as I heat it in a stainless-steel collander pot. I stirred the crap out of it then focused as close as possible with the 18-200 lens at the longest FL.

    Here's what happened when I started playing around with the white balance and hue/saturation controls in Lightroom.











    Psychadelic.

    Those pics are all hand-held, too. I could get MUCH sharper images with the camera on a tripod and a hotter off-camera strobe.
