Ok I am borrowing a friends Digital Rebel for the weekend, and I have been testing it on my frogs. I may purchase one in the near future. Let me know what you think:

It can be slow in some cases. So far I am pleased with the results. Still trying somethings, and plan to spend the whole day tomorrow messing with it. I'm sure I will be getting a ring flash if I make the move. Not sure on the macro lens yet, but have not tried it. Would like to try some extension tubes also.

Kyle,

Flash sych on the rebel is very slow...not sure it is a super problem with frogs shots but generally it is too slow.

Kyle,

The flash sync speed has nothing to do with what kind of flash you use or what accessories you use...it is a function of the camera body and is a set thing.

Kyle-

I, like everyone else, am always in awe with your pictures but holy s*@t!!! Those pics are amazing! Great job! I am very interested in photography lately, and tend to go on picture taking fits of at least 100 pics at a time. I only wish that I could learn how to take shots like the ones you always have. Keep em coming is the only other thing left to say! :D

Thanks I took about 60-100 in the first hour I had the camera home. I am going to try some more things today.

Kyle,

From a purely perfectionist photographis viewpoint, i think that these images are slightly inferior to your previous ones. Possibly because it's a new tool and you haven't got all the bells and whistles figured out.

I have used both the 10D and the Rebel and i would go with the 10D in a heartbeat. the rebel just seems to have more issues that you have to work around and i have never been able to get the quality of image that i can with the 10d which is a breeze to use.

flash sync speed

Canon 300D / Digital Rebel flash sync speed is 1/200

Canon 10D flash sync speed is also 1/200

The sync speed is one thing, flash duration is another. The more power a flash uses, the longer the flash duration, the less power a flash uses the shorter the flash duration. However, for practicaal purposes, on these cameras, the flash duration is much shorter the flash sync speed, so this is a non issue. Any movement should be frozen, unless you are photographing bullets.

There are also hacks available that make some of the features disabled on the Digital Rebel available (disabled so as not to take away sales from the 10D).

The Canon EF 100 macro is outstanding, and is one of the sharpest lense in the lineup. It is not that hard to make a sharp macro lens, and they definitely nailed this one.

I use both the 10D and the EF 100 macro.

Thanks and I agree. I am working on some more, and just got back from the zoo testing it. The larger sensor causes some issues, but the clarity is just amazing.
