*This might need to go in the Beginner's Section...?* *Sorry if wrong Section... =)* Hey all, I found this site and happy to be a new member! I wanted to solicit some advice from some of you all and get your feedback. My mother has been a professional photographer for years, mostly shot film in the 70's - 80's and since then has moved on to other things and shoots for fun now. She switched to digital as a primary a few years ago, has a full setup based on a Canon 20D. My sister is a pretty proficient intermediate as well, solely on digital, has a Canon Powershot and Rebel XSI. I'm 6'5", so have bigger hands than normal. I've been using my mother's 20D quite a bit over the past year (off and on) and she has loaned it to me for the past month full time. I've used my sister's equipment and gone out and played with the 50D, T1i among a few others. I've settled on Canon since I like the interface, button placement/ergonomics and can swap lenses and equipment with my family. All that being said, I'm kind of torn between getting a Canon T1i, or a used 30D. I have an overall budget of about $1,200, but can spend a bit more or less depending on what I find. - I lean towards the larger size/build of the 30D, but am concerned the technology is a bit old related to true color, processing power, etc. Is that really that out of date and will someone like me notice a difference from the new tech of the T1i? - I like the T1i tech, but the form factor is so small for me and adding larger lenses and a flash will make it all even more exaggerated. I like the idea of using a battery grip to make the whole body more manageable and bigger for me though. I plan to keep getting better and practicing, I want to buy a telephoto and 50mm macro to start out with. I'd like to eventually move up to a 60D or 5D in the future as my pocketbook and skills allow. Thanks!
