Canon EOS 30D Review

The EOS 30D Digital SLR is the much anticipated update to Canon's popular EOS 20D. It takes the same 8.2-megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor and mates it to the more powerful DIGIC II Imaging processor for fast 5 fps performance. The EOS 30D takes photographers closer to the level of Canon’s pro digital SLR line, incorporating features and innovations from the EOS 5D and the EOS-1D Mark II N Digital SLRs, at a fraction of their respective prices. Whether your job is covering a wedding, a hot news story or capturing the fine details of a portrait, the EOS 30D has got you covered.

Increasing the camera’s flexibility and ease of use, the ISO speed can now be set from 100 to 1600 in 1/3 stop increments, rather than full stops (and can be pushed to 3200 with ISO expansion). What’s more, users can see the ISO setting in the viewfinder while changing it (and not simply on the monitor display as on the EOS 20D model), which in turn permits photographers to keep their eyes on their subject.
