Ah certainly - full screens are target objective in 2005. Going with adding the "Full screen" option to our site.
Now I guess you are wondering why we went with Canon instead of the D70. Well for several reasons. The Canon uses a CMOS sensor and I have been told that it does not have as much of an electrical charge and therefor attracts less dust. Nikon seems to have "Nikon Blue" color cast trait. Canon allows you to select a warmer color scheme. I was particularly attracted to James Yang's image and Samir's (Dubai UAE) World Wide Panorama entry
They used a Canon 10d and a Sigma 8 and captured a highly detailed and very suitable image. I figure that if they can do that with a 10d, I should be able to do equally as well with the 20d.
Another factor was its quite a jump from our Nikon 990 3.34mp to 8.25mp. More pixels - More detail etc.
I am still finding when using the 20d I keep trying to use the LCD for the view finder. Guess I will get around that eventually. And 990 would emit a 'beep' when the picture was taken. The 20d mirror mechanical sound lets me know the picture was taken. It sounds like our 40 year old 35mm film Nikkormat. You would think they would have come up with some type of mirror noise dampening technique over the years.
There is still some good milage remaining on the 1998 Nikon 990's. Even though we are starting to see some stuck hot pixels we are only at 9000 images mark. Just seemed it was time to upgrade our cameras. In 1998 we set up an 'Equipment Replacement' account and from each contract, set aside a %.of the earnings. The account had enough in it to cover the camera upgrade.
Those are some of the reasons we decided to go over to the Canon camp. Oh yes, I might have to return that lens. Didn't see the smiley face character in the front optic - must be a manufactures defect.
