Canon EOS 30D Digital SLR

 

The EOS 30D may not be much of an improvement over the 20D, but it's still a great camera.

Canon EOS 30D review

 

The EOS 20D is dead - long live the 30D!

Excellent build quality ; Excellent exposure, contrast and colour rendition ; Very good autofocus and exposure systems

Fine detail rendition soemtimes disappointing

The 30D is a nice camera with superb continuous-shooting performance and all the features most amateurs will ever need

Canon EOS-30D

 

Canon's 8.2Mp EOS-30D is a follow-up to the 20D in essence, it's a 20D Mark 2, sporting few improvements. But the 20D was an excellent camera, of course.

The EOS-30D offers pro handling and excellent quality. It's a great step-up from entry-level digital SLRs, but only a modest upgrade from the EOS-20D.

Excellent image quality.Starts in 0.15 sec.New 100,000 cycle shutter.True Spot metering.1/3 EV increments to ISO settings.Burst mode of 30 frames at 5 fps.19 Custom functions.Magnesium alloy body.Improved battery life.

New Spot metering cannot be tied to focus point.New Print/Share button should have been customizable.Design of power switch still requires the use of both hands.

Canon EOS 30D

 

At £1000, this doesn't come cheap, but what you get is real value for money

An exceptionally well-featured SLR that produces outstanding images. It doesn't differ enough from the EOS 350D to justify the extra expense, though

EOS 30D

 

The EOS 30D is Canon's latest mid-range SLR digital camera. It builds on the strengths of the semi-pro EOS 20D, but features the same 8.2-megapixel CMOS sensor.

The supplied EOS utility provides tethered image capture and makes an extensive range of features available from the Mac or PC

Review: Canon 30D

 

Cheaper than a 5D and more than a 400D - can you tell why we call this a mid range DSLR from Canon?

Image quality, low noise, logical layout that's familiar to any Canon user

Not a great upgrade to the 20D, no anti dust, no image stabiliser in the camera

I started this review by saying that I would help you decide between the 30D and the 5D. I can't - it's up to you whether you prefer the full frame of the 5D or the cropped sensor of the 30D (plus the extra £750 in your pocket - the 5D is currently...

The 30D is a well-made, sophisticated camera that produces great-looking results. Some may be disappointed by the fine detail rendition, though, and may need to experiment with different sharpening settings or RAW files. And good though it is, the 30D is
