Canon EOS Rebel vs. D20

Both are plenty good, but it baffles me why Nikon D70 didn't include the capability for ISO 100. May not make a difference to a lot of people, but I shoot mostly in 100, so for that reason, among a few other reasons is why I chose the 20D over the D70.

Or what can also be known as longtime exposure.

Yeah, the exposure you'd typically use a cable release for, one where you allow it to expose as long as you want, whether it be 2 seconds or 2 days! That would be the one! :D
 
Steve's Digicams review says so.
"Shutter speeds: 30 to 1/4,000 seconds, plus Bulb"

You apparently need one of these: Canon Remote Switch RS-60E3 for Elan, Rebel & EOS IX Series Cameras.
B&H has them for $25. The button has a locking feature so your thumb doesn't fall off during a 1 hr exposure.

Thank you, Greg! Just what I needed to know! :D
 
The Digital Rebel also has an infrared receiver that allows you to use a wireless remote control to take pictures. This is particularly handy because unlike a cable release, it doesn't require a locking mechanism or timer. Just set the camera to bulb mode, press and release the button on the remote to start taking the picture, then press and release the button again to stop taking.

This is one feature I really wish the 20D had but does not... with the 20D you must buy the more expensive cable release+locking mechanism/timer to take useful bulb exposures.
 
I have the Digital Rebel with the 18-55mm lens. I love it. So foar since October, I have taken over 2000 pictures with it. My only complaint is on those long exposure night shots, the trees in the foreground always appear red. It doesn't matter what white balance setting I have. I have seen samples online taken with theis camera without red trees. Has anybody else had similar results?
 
Here is an image outside.

You would say that the red is because of the lighting. The same light with a film camera gives a green tint. No matter where I have taken night pictures, the foreground is red. Even in an open fiels with only hte moon lighting things up. (I can't find that picture right now)

I know I can adjust the colors later, but it would be nice if I didn't have to.
