It has the standard sleep mode where it will blank out until the shutter button is pressed to wake it up again.  I seem to recall it has a user selectable time interval before it goes to sleep, and I think you can disable the sleeping altogether as well.  Not worth much at all on the used market, but in good light its a great camera.  Its biggest negatives are its slow operation, small rear display, and noise above ISO400.  Also, it won't accept EF-S lenses, the 20D was the first to offer that option.

Thanks for your response. You think 100 bucks for a used 10D or a little more??

One more question, can you wake a canon camera up using a remote trigger when the camera goes to sleep???

Don't know the answer to that question, but I can tell you that as long as the rear LCD is off the camera isn't consuming much power when its not sleeping anyway. I own one, haven't used it much the last few years, but when I did I turned off the sleep mode altogether and carried it around all day long. In fact I seem to recall having discussions on this forum many years ago where people complained that it took too long to come back out of sleep mode, so I told them to just turn off sleep mode and that problem would go away.

regarding the value, let's just say its not likely you're going to get into a bidding war on Ebay over one, or if you buy locally that the seller is going to have multiple offers.  Whatever its worth to you is fair game as an offer.

Very definitely YES.

I've kept my 10D, and now use it for time lapse sequences, using the mains/battery adapter and a Canon TC-80N3 timer/remote control.  Sometimes I shoot every 30 minutes; in other cases, it's once/day.

Re: Question on 10D camera

I build wildlife camera traps out of old DSLR cameras. I am trying to figure out what the wake up time of this 10 D camera is when it is in sleep mode. I have heard that it takes this camera 2 seconds to wake up. Is that true??? I was hoping for a little faster wake up time on this camera.

Re: Question on 10D camera

That's a very different use to my time-lapse sequences, where the camera gets awakened (I think) by a pre-pulse (shutter half-press) from the timer/remote.  Certainly when I've been present during a photo, the camera wakes up several seconds before the shot is taken.

Yes; it's the same as pressing the shutter release on the camera.
