Its a great time to get a D30 right now I just got one brand new for $700. I was just wondering how many d30 uses are on Airliners.net. And what you think of the camera? And if you have any suggestions that would be great.

I went from a Fuji2800z to a D30 with no experience at all. With a little hands on and a quick flick through the manual, it soon became easy to use. I have good response from my photos too. I have a full page spread in "baby onbaord" magazine - the inflight magazine for bmi baby. Just last week a photo in "Aviation News"...
So, for me (anyway) the D30 is a great buy. Obviously the launch of new Canon range helps reduce the D30 price, but I cant complain one bit.
Am not gona hype my own photos, but if you wish to view a "sample" then check out below:

Some examples you might want to search for:
And of course myself, Garry Lewis.
I can't remember any more, so apologies if I missed anyone out.
It's a great camera, I am sure you will love it. Do remember though a great camera cannot cover up the defects of bad lenses, so it's worth getting a good lens (The Canon 75-300 is a good starter), for your D30.

I briefly had a D30, but an understanding dealer let me return it for the D60 when it was released. There is really nothing in terms of image quality between the two cameras - the D30 might even have a slight edge in sheer smoothness. The main advantage of the D60 is that quality is held to larger output sizes. So whereas a D30 image is limited to about 6x9 @ 300dpi, the D60 will cover a full page without interpolation.
Of course, you CAN take a D30 image up to full page with a bit of processing, but, in general, the D60 will do the same job as a D30 but a bit bigger. Depends what your requirements are. If you don't need large prints, the D30 will let you get twice as many images on your CF card.
