Terrific article, I am seriously tempted to pick up one of these cameras.


Your comment on the flash card seemed like a nit. But if someone is disappointed it doesn't come with a flash card, think how ticked they will be when they find out it doesn't come with a lens!


Seriously, I would think that someone considering this class of camera would toss any memory card packaged with this camera, opting to pick up the largest, fastest card available. Maybe it won't help that much but it only feels right in a camera like this.

    What! There's no lens! ;)

    Seriously, I agree that people who buy this camera aren't going to find much use for a 16MB "starter" card. And I understand the economics of price competition. But, heck, I think a 128MB card in the box would get folks off to a nice start the moment they receive the camera. A small point, but one that I would appreciate.

      Considering these cameras are in such high demand and short supply, if you order your card at the same time it'll probably show up before the camera. That's what happened to me at least. I ended up staring at my 1GB CF card for a week before I got my 10D. =)

        When I ordered my camera, I ordered for the 1Gb high speed memory card at the same time. If you haggle like crazy, alot of the required bits that are generally not included, you will be able to get for a excellent deal. I was able to get the card for 1/2 price.
