My New Camera

Wed Sep 15, 2004 7:53 pm

"Hey, it says on your website that the 20D's in stock with you guys, is that true? I placed an order and am wondering if I can come pick it up."

"Yes, that is true. What's your name?"

"Brian Futterman."

"OH! Brian Futterman! I was going to call you in two minutes to let you know it was in! Beat me to it."

Well, after calling in one of the first 150 preorders a week ago and dropping off a check this past Sunday, I'd hope I came away with something in a decent amount of time. Keyword: something

Yep, have the Canon EOS 20D. Sitting right infront of me. What a perfect beast. Nothing else though...no lenses, no CF, one battery, and no case. Another week or two, I presume.

All the salesmen in the store were hovering over it when I took it out of the box, and I had fun mounting some L on it at the counter. Granted, the salesman ended up using it more than I did, but hey, with it being as light as the Digital Rebel with watered down 1D MkII innards, I can't blame him.

This thing is great. Can't wait to complete the set and head out each weekend. I've started to bounce between the 100-400 or a telephoto prime (400/5.6 or 300/4 IS), but I'll let that blow over.


Bottom line. Thanks to Josh, the Matts, Phil, Art, Bill, Jeff, Vitaly, Chris, Wietse and others for putting up with god knows what from Futt. Really. Thanks.

Will, you actually thought you'd get one before me? Wow... :-p

Thanks, Tobi. Maybe I'll get one of the cops that goes, "Hey, what're you guys doing over here?" "Taking photos..." "Really? WOW! Is that the new 20D?"

Burke, B&H should have plenty left and plenty coming. As long as you can weave through the Jewish Holidays, you'll be set.


However, I warn everyone lusting for the 20D...after checking it out...well, it SUCKS. I'm incredibly disappointed. If you want this camera, keep looking. Horrible. Terrible. Absolutely, undeniably atrocious.  Acting devilish

Thanks

When it comes, it comes, Tom. I think it's safe to say that I won't be stuck with a camera body for the next year, and that sits well with me.

I feared the day when I'd have ot compete with Futterman. The boy has the eye, all he needed was the equipment to back it up.

And will someone tell him that it's not good for the camera with just turn it on and hold down the shutter for no reason while there's noo lens on it jsut to hear what it sounds like over and over. It hurts to hear over the phone. :-p

Luckily I've been checking in at Digital Photography Review and noticed (how couldn't I?) the hubbub about B&H having 20Ds in stock, with some left over from the preorders. Having originally preordered from Ritz, I quickly ordered from B&H and managed to get it shipped before they close for the holiday. Woohoo!  Big thumbs up

Wietse. Envious of WHAT? No lens, no proving shots. Just a (camera) body and a nice smirk is all you're seeing.  Smile

Josh, about the 100-400. My birthday is March 3. Tell Wendy, see what you can do.  Big grin

Thanks, Phil. There won't be any competition, though. We're in this for the same reason, but that doesn't mean I won't beat you into the--whoops! lol

Terrible Enrique. I sent you an email, do check it out.

QantasA332, glad to hear you switched over to B&H at the last minute. Drop me a line when you come by to pick up the stuff.

Hey folks! Sorry I wasn't the first one to reply to Futt's (stupid) thread, just kidding, of course....

Anyway, Brian, over months of debating over lenses, accessories, and between 300D and 10D, you made the choice with something we discussed only once, and quite briefly... What's next, a nikkor lens?!?! HAHAHAHA

qoz**: that's why you havent replied to my thread that you HATE me
qoz**: lol
vafi**: what thread?
vafi**: oh
vafi**: the self glossy thread


I hate you Futterman, and when I finally come to NYC, you better tell the camera to watch its ass...

Edited due to:
qoz**: its' LENS
qoz**: not LENSE

So you've got a camera with no lenses...that should be fun. Just don't stroke your new camera too much or else you might not be able to use it when you finally do get some lenses. Oh wait...that's someone else we know that likes to fondle cameras (hint: medication). Big grin

Hi Futterman et al,

I bought the D20 today and would like to know if the charger that came with it(which charges the BP-511A battery), can also be used to charge the older BP-511 batteries? And vice versa.

I have a few expensive Pentium-keyrings and have become a little cautious.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Thanks all for the replies. If you guys wouldn't mind flattering my parents as well, that'd be great...

No lens sucks. I might stiff one from Phil this weekend for a few hours ( Big grin). Financing the rest of the equipment via my parents is also another option I have to discuss.

Chad, would you rather have a body and no lens? Or a lens and no body? Get back to me and I'll be sure to pick up the 600/4 if you opt for the latter.

For all the Nikon guys out there. Somebody said a while ago that you must have an inferiority complex. I'd expect it from Cancidas (who buys a DSLR to use someone else's lenses?). Whatever the case, to each his own. Go huddle around your new D2x if you're getting cold in this mind-blowingly cool thread.

Peter, the included CG-580 charger is compatible with all BP-500 series batteries. Congrats to you, too, on the 20D. Impressive, eh? Now leave it in the box until I have my first upload.  Smile

As for samples, hopefully some in the next few days. Looking forward to shooting ISO 1600/3200 and getting on A.net. I'm just worried that someone will beat me...  Acting devilish


Cheers and take it easy,

AS for lenses, Me and Futt talked a little on this, and due to the restraints of finance options for the tons of lenses the little sh!t wants (hahaha - I'm just messin futt!), I offered the 50-500 from Sigma!

I told him that if he'd keep the reciept and keep it in good shape and stuff, he might just live with it until he can make some more money to buy his 1-400L glass...

I thought it'd be a good idea because it covers most of the necessary ranges and that the only problem would be the wide angle zoom...but who needs that anyway? (sarcastic)....

FUTT - BUY THE 50-500 , love the cam, respect the Bigma.

Have you considered Sigma or Tamron Glass? I think they are less expensive and have Canon Mounts. Ive used a 10D with a Sigma lens and the photos were very nice. Consider it.

If you don't have anything to add other than your negativity, don't post. You come of as a jeolous school boy who didn't get the toy you wanted for Christmas.

RE: My New Camera

Sat Sep 18, 2004 8:19 pm

Cancidas,

What are YOU talking about? I'm annoying. I'll give you that. I go back, read my posts from last year and even last week, and whack myself in the head because they disgust me. But nothing is nearly as repulsive as what you just said.

I'll nitpick. Not more than twice have I called you at 7AM (note: when we were to be picking you up in a matter of minutes). This camera has been on my agenda for the past year, and when I got wind that I'm this much closer to making it happen, I (rightfully so) got enthusiastic. Deal with it. And, I naturally project my voice more than others, usually unnecessarily. Now, though, I do have something to shout at you about.

Even in front of other people you've shown me blatant disrespect. What gives?

You have every right to dislike me. But when it comes to the point where you're no longer mature about it, and do it on such a frequent basis that OTHER people begin to notice (on an INTERNET FORUM), you've taken it too far. Your plan to make me look stupid has fatally backfired.


If you can't handle the personality of a 16 year old like myself--if I'm too loud, jumpy, excited, whatever--so be it. I know hard drugs and alcohol are known to make one irritable (I've never done them), but just keep it to yourself, because frankly, I, nor anyone else want to hear your complaints about me.

When I first met you about a year ago, I thought you were a pretty cool guy. And I still do when I think about certain aspects. While I've been able to successfully take the relationship I created with others soley based on aviation and turn them into something a little more personal, I have not and now will not do the same with you.

I suggest that you thoroughly read this and make an appropriate reply. Show off what you have. When I compare the Matt I meet in real life with the Cancidas I know on the forums, they're not the same guy, and that gets on my nerves. You're both book smart and street smart, but now I'm beginning to wonder.

LOW BLOW.

______


Thanks, Bronko.

Chad, '5' and '6' are awfully close on the keyboard...lol Yeah, it's stupid that I'm proclaiming my new camera BODY, so it's yet another thing I leave open for friendly fire if/when we meet...

I am thrilled for you. I did not have the patience to wait, and bought the 300D back in the winter. Do I regret not waiting???... no.......well, maybe. You'd better get a high paying job real fast, because you now have a bad case of glass fever. I also heard on another website that the D in the Canon DSLR line stands for DEBT.  Smile

Use it wisely and in good health.

Happy New Year,

Cancidas,

If Futterman bothers you so much, then don't talk to him.

Keep the whining off of the boards. "He bothers me about getting his camera...". Don't make plans to hang with him and block him on AIM then.
This isn't high school.

I'm excited for Brian and this isn't the place to bring negativity. Take it to IM or just ignore him altogether.

Cancidas,

If Futterman bothers you so much, then don't talk to him.

Keep the whining off of the boards. "He bothers me about getting his camera...". Don't make plans to hang with him and block him on AIM then.
This isn't high school.



i do, the problem is that he has yet to realize it. even all the hinting at it doesn't work. hopefully now he gets the picture!
