Last Saturday, I went out for a day to play my DSLR. The photo is good. I brought my normal digital camera as well and took some photo this one as well. I can see there are major different between my DSLR and normal digital. That is more shaper image and layering in the photo took by my DSLR.

Generally, I like my 30D
