Congrats on your future purchase!
I received my 300D a few weeks back, and am very pleased with it. My first shots are in the upload q, so hopefully will get into the database.
I have to disagree with Apuneger, get a microdrive - they hold 1gb of data, and are very cheap now days. I can pick one up for just over £100.They are capable of taking 320 shots at 6.2 million megapixels.
You want the highest setting for optimum performance. I believe that the 300D's default settings are Set to the highest number of pixels when you first receive it.
I store my pictures on CD and on my computer. Therefore if my PC buggers up I can rely on the CD
, to restore all of my pictures.
Also, renember to save your pictures as a unique filename before you upload to a.net.
With the 300D you will receive a copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements, I use this program to edit my photos, and feel that it does the job.
The last thing I can say, is enjoy it! Don't start getting frustrated if you cant get the photo you want, you will get there in the end.
Just remember - Practice Practice Practice!
