A Photographer's Review of the Canon EOS 10D Digital SLR

The one feature that I think this camera is missing is a FireWire port as opposed to a USB port. I wouldn't want to wait for 6 megapixel images to slither down the length of a USB cable.

With a FireWire port, I'd also hold out hope that I could use my iPod with the camera as a photo archive during long trips instead of taking my iBook with me.

    The Nikon high-end models (D1x/h) come with a Firewire port. I'm not 100% sure about the D100 or the high-end Canons, I haven't had the chance to play with any of those.

    I'm also bothered by the lack of firewire on high end consumer cameras that generate large files and sale receipts.

    I found some card readers with firewire so this might be a workable solution for you. Unfortunately I haven't found a firewire card reader that'll accept memorysticks.

    I especially like the idea of using my iPod for photo storage on the road. I wish you hadn't mentioned it now ;)

    As for photo transfer with USB 1.1, or the PC Card adapter for that matter, it isn't too bad. I usually shoot at the highest Jpeg resolution, and those images are 2.4 MBs each. The lower resolutions result in even smaller files.

      Belkin sells a card reader that interfaces with the iPod. About $100 I think.
