Hi folks,
I'm looking into buying a Canon 10D DSLR in the near future and would like to see for myself what the image quality is like.
Can anyone tell me where I can find some high resolution Canon 10D sample images,to possibly download and print out.
I've seen the samples at DPReview (which are outstanding) but I'd like to try and find some natural history shots,birds preferably.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Justin.

I don't think you'll be disappointed with the quality, for the money, I don't think you'll beat it. If you're still not convinced, after there being so many reports, I'm not sure what will convince you! Wink There are some seriously good photographers out there already using this camera, with great success. I haven't got any high resolution shots here, I deliberately keep them small, but the first six rows, with the exception of the bluetit, are all taken with the 10D.

And I'm a novice, so these could be a lot better in the hands of an expert.

Frank,Brian.
Thanks for your help.
I'm sure the image quality is superb,in fact I've never heard anyone say otherwise.I guess I'm just looking for that final shove to make the financial commitment.I looked at a full resolution portrait of a woman's face earlier on DPReview,and to say the quality was good would be a gross understatement.I just thought it would be nice to see some high res.natural history images to convince me still further.
Thanks for those links.I'll check them out now.

Cheers
Justin.

Hi Brian,
Had a look there,but unfortunatly it is very hard to assess the quality of the small image sizes on that site.
I'm looking for some full resolution,originals,if I can find any.
Thanks for your help.

What are you using at present Justin? A Hasselblad or something? Or is it that you have not used digital?

Not sure why you are doubting the quality of Canon lenses. I have used them for years and have found the limitation (particularly for hand-held shots) is my own skill not the lenses.

I dont think Justin mentioned lenses Carabosse ? I think he is looking to see some samples of his type of photography done with a 10D.
I think there are some shots done by Andy Rouse on the Wharehouse Express/EPhotozine shop site, complete with a review of the camera in general ( I went for the Nikon D100, but only cos I have a bunch of Nikon Glass)

I'm just trying to see where Justin's concerns lie. It may be he has never used digital. Or it may be that he is downscaling from MF.

His best bet is to have a look at DPReview and similar sites and see what the experts think of the camera. He should also look and see what they think of his present camera.

I don't think viewing pics on a PC monitor is going to help much and to find full res pics on the web, to download and print out, is going to be tricky!

Hey! I'm starting to get seriously worried now! I'm in danger of agreeing with Caraboose! True, not completely, but partially! Wink If it were a new camera, I could understand the prevarication, let's ckeck it out first. But it's got a well proven track record, good enough for the likes of Andy Rouse, I can't see what more Justin needs in the way of proof that it's a good camera. Given that this camera might not meet his exacting standards, what's the alternative? Fuji S2 or the Nixon? Both good cameras, perhaps he should try one of those. Which ever one, he'll have to make a decision sometime, bite the bullet, and shell out the cash.

Its a lot of money and I know I was pretty paranoid before buying the 300D (for a lot less dosh!). We all approach these things in different ways - give him a chance guys,

Brian that's a very good resource. I do think we ought to have a "good links" item in the Learn category where all these sort of resources can be gathered.


PS: Just looked at the comment for my own cam: "Photos taken are some of the best you'll find. The camera has incredible resolution, good sharpness, mostly accurate color, and low noise." Phew that's a relief!! Lol!! Wink

Agree Brian, for me the 10D was a major spend, and I read and read report after report, but now, it's a camera that has been around for a while, it's proven! The 300D is very recent compared with the 10D. Looking at shots is only any good if they are from a top photographer, someone who knows how to get the best out of the camera. No good looking at mine, check out Andy Rouse, or similar! Wink I looked at the shots on the link you gave, and I don't think I would have bought the 10D on the strength of those! Nearly all the levels are way out, they are very ordinary shots. But what ever he decides, best of luck to him. I know it was one of my better choices.

Goodness now I'm agreeing with Abwhitt - I agree that the shots were a bit ordinary, both for the 10D and my own cam. Nevertheless to find full res pics on the net can only be good.
