Canon EOS D30

 

The single-lens reflex mirror and viewfinder system give an unbeatably clear view through the same lens that shoots the image - but as with other digital SLRs - this means that the D30's LCD monitor can't display a preview image, only a playback

Canon EOS-D30 Review

 

Long awaited. Canon first revealed the EOS-D30 at PMA this year (with a "tentative launch of Fall 2000"), they then later made it official and published full specifications and we got our first hands on with the D30, though at that stage Canon weren't...

Great resolution, clean, noise-free images (even at high ISO / long exposures) Noise reduction algorithm works well Good range of sensitivities (100 - 1600) Smooth gradients, little or no edge aberration effects (no over-sharpening) Fast reaction, good...

Images may seem a little "soft" to some users, increasing sharpness setting on the camera improves things and there's actually no less detail in a D30 image than any other 3 megapixel Opening the CF door shuts the camera down, loses any buffered images...

Canon really did made life difficult for themselves, they knew full well that they would be judged on success of the D30, they know how important the digital photography market has become and how a camera like the D30 could affect their reputation.

Canon EOS D30 Review Round-Up

 

The D30 is a highly durable camera constructed from polycarbonate material on the outside with a steel inner frame. It is more compact and a good deal lighter than the D1 but its burst rate is only 3fps up to a maximum of 8 frames. The D30 offers more...
