    Really it's you that has to be happy with the purchase but over all I think the 7d is a very good purchase There is quite a number of very happy 7d users on this forum.

    Damo.
    Congratulations on the purchase of your new camera I'm sure you will enjoy it and will eventually be taking some great photos. I say eventually only because it took me a while to figure thing out and to set it up the way I wanted it. It is a fantastic camera but just takes a bit of getting used to.
    Do yourself a favor and have a look at these.

    Still amazes me what thing can do, the technology is great. Just learnt how to use the wireless E-TTL.

    How good is that?

    And the pic preview is much better than my 40D.

    I too will be purchasing a 7D within the next 4 weeks - really looking forward to it I am sure it will be another learning curve from my 1000D

    Just learnt how to use the wireless E-TTL.
    It is not wireless - it is infra red and needs line of sight. Runs my 3 speedlites very well.

    Congratulations by the way -- great camera. I love mine.

    Congrats, I have been vaguely thinking about it myself as my fiancée wants my 50d, seems silly to just buy another 50d (though they are around $850 new now).. I know I *should* just save some money and buy her a second hand 30d/40d... Of course buying new toys is so tempting.. LOL

    Now to your request, if your enjoying using it then you did the right thing, as that's all that matters ;-)

    What is the moderators problem here?, like a concentration camp, I was not trying to bypass the rules it was a genuine question, how would you like me to re-phrase the question so im not bypassing the rules?

    Simply, the rules say no classified access (i.e. selling) until 50 posts + 30 days members; plus current activity to be able to create a thread in Classifieds.
    You kept talking about gear for sale - not on.
    There are very good reasons for these rules.

    Edit: Rick explained this in a PM

    Hey Damien.
    Owned my 7D for some months now. It was a big jump from a 350D so much to learn. Got some good advice from other members and am now very happy.
    Enjoy it. It's a great toy.
    As for the site rules. Sit back. Relax. Breathe deeply. And wait it out. Very well worth it.
    Peter.

    I did have classifieds section but as my wife was going through final stages of cancer i was not on as much as i use too, so i have lost that section now. No compassion from AP.

    Actually, infra-red is indeed a form of wireless communications - ie, no wires ;-)

    I think that is an unfair remark.

    I can't be bothered arguing with stupid statements like that, but if it were truly wireless as we all know it, then it would work outside the line of sight, and it does not. Sometimes this is a bit of a nuisance.
