Newbie to DSLR - should I upgrade?
Feb 17, 2012

Folks,

My wife bought me a Canon 20D with kit lens 4 years ago and also bought me a prime lens & a telephoto lens. I am a P&S shooter and was intimidated by the DSLR .. never took it out of the box. Finally this year I saw some great pictures that my friend took at my brother's wedding, so now I am interested in learning about the DSLR. I have enrolled in a local class that starts in a month and it is an 8 week course that teaches fundamentals of photography and helps you navigate the Manual mode of your DSLR.

I am wondering whether the Canon 20D that is still in the box will be sufficient for this course, or should I upgrade to a newer camera body like the Canon T2i that can be had for a very good deal now. Please give me some good suggestions.

Thanks!
