Canon EOS D30, any good?
 
well my uncle gave me this canon EOS D30(body) the other night, and I was wondering if it's worth it to get a lense/battery for it?

Does anyone have any experience with this camera? what lense would you recommend for every day shooting?

Thanks for the help :)

Free camera is like free beer...they are all good.

No, I have no experience with the camera..but if you buy a lens for it and find it does not perform how you need then you have a lens to buy a new body for.

If you decide you don't want it, can I have it? :-)

Seriously though, the EOS range of DSLRs are a fine set of camera. Admittedly the D30 is on the lower end of the spectrum feature-wise, but it's still a fine camera and well worth getting at least a standard zoom lens for.

thanks :) what's the best place to go for to just find a regular ol' zoom lense?

Go to KEH camera and buy a used on (or ebay, photo forums) why buy new to put on a free camera...keep the set up cheap it will help you enjoy it more and leave money in your pocket in case you decide to get more used lenses.
