canon eos 20d

 

Excellent image quality.Extremely fast to start.Very fast burst mode. Excellent long exposures.Entirely useable ISO range, up to 3200 ISO. 18 custom functions.Sturdy construction.Excellent battery life.

Power switch requires the use of both hands.Red-eye reduction lamp might be better placed with the flash and separate from the self-timer lamp.

Canon EOS 20D

 

The EOS 20D is only a little more expensive than other entry-level digital SLRs, but it offers much more. Image quality is superb better than many six-megapixel cameras, and the continuous shooting mode is exceptional. Nikon&tr

Review of the Canon EOS 20D - Digital SLR Reviews

 

The 20D is Canon's semi-professional SLR, delivering some of the speed and performance of their pro models at a price closer to that of their enthusiast offering.

Expert Review

 

The EOS 20D offers professional handling, quality and features at an affordable price. One of the best digital SLRs, for enthusiasts and professionals alike.

8.2 megapixel resolution, great value, instant startup

Canon EOS 20D review

 

Canon EOS 20D Canon has produced a worthy successor to the EOS 10D with this model, endowing it with class-leading 8-megapixel resolution, excellent image quality across a broad range of ISO settings, and fast performance. With a sturdy, well-designed...

Excellent low-light performance; fast and responsive; straightforward controls; nice balance of features for both experienced and learning photographers.

No spot meter; pop-up flash casts shadow with some lenses; viewfinder provides only 95 percent view; average battery life; 1.6X lens-conversion factor.

Though its performance has been surpassed by subsequent models, the Canon EOS 20D remains a top semipro dSLR choice.
