Some info for the newcomers.....

If the 10D (or the 300D, D60 or even the D30) is new to you then here are a few links that might provide some good exploring over the weekend (or during lunch at work!). They are not all 10D, D60, or D30 specific but you may find something of interest. Some you may know of...others may be worth a new peek.

The Nature Photographers online magazine site is a great site. For instance, here's a review of the Canon 50mm f/1.4 prime lens which is a beautiful lens and is worth considering. http://www.naturephotographers.net/je0700-1.html

Michael Reichmann is a landscape photographer based in Canada
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/ Tons of good reading.

Norman Koren has a site that seems to go on forever. He works the 10D and uses Picture Window Pro, which is an interesting alternative to Photoshop. Great articles here. http://www.normankoren.com

Neil Turner, based in the UK, has a great Canon site. If you are interested in portraits with style check his page out. http://www.dg28.com/

Don Cohen started out with a D30 and I believe is now using a 1D. He assembled a great site of images and information, especially useful for any new D30 owners. http://www.dlcphotography.com/

Here's a page from Photo.net that gives some reviews of some of Canon's glass. http://www.photo.net/canon/#lense

BTW, photo.net was started by Philip Greenspun, who is a pioneer in marrying the art of photography with the technology of computers and the web. If you are intertested in some simple but powerful techniques to build a photojournalistic web page, check out his writings. http://philip.greenspun.com/
The entire photo.net site is great. Good learning pages for new SLR owners.

Gary Voth has put together a great online photo-essay worth taking a peek at. The 10D was his main camera he used on a recent trip to Africa.

Roger Cavanagh has a page worth spending some time on.
