Well, I finally went out and got the other stuff for my microphone set… here they are
“Canon EOS 300D / Digital Rebel”
“Canon EOS 10D”
“WASIA v1.1.1 b7 Firmware Hack”
Its been widely known that the Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel and the Canon EOS 10D DSLR’s are similar beasts. In fact, if you look at their Side-by-side comparisons you can see that most of the features that vary are catagorized as “Customizable”.
The 10D has a menu item called “Custom Functions” which allows these settings to be adjusted. Well, a fellow in Russia found that in the latest firmware, by switching a single byte in the firmware image, he was able to enable most of these 10D “Custom Functions” in the Digital Rebel. Now, some features, such as more frames in rapid shooting, are hardware-limitations but some features lacking such as Flash Exposure Compensation and embedded JPEG quality are found to be working in the 300D.
Now I dare say that it is extremely close to performing like its big brother, the EOS 10D, which is about double the price. Well performing is probably stretching it, maybe delivering is a better term.
“AKG Project Pack (C1000S and C3000B mics)”
During the US tour last April, I ordered a set of AKG studio mics.. My friend finally arrived in the country with them (w00t!).
I must be patient =) As soon as I get them I hope I have the time to finish some songs I have lined up.
