Canon EOS 30D review


As a new camera the Canon EOS 30D is a bit of a disappointment, but viewed as an upgrade to an already very good camera, it performs its role well. So while the extra functions don’t excite us as much as a brand new model would, the Canon 30D is still a very good camera.

Canon may appear to have missed a trick by not announcing something totally new in the same price bracket as the Nikon D200 that matches its pixel count. But Canon is canny, and it’s rare that any opportunity is missed, so I suspect there’s something else up Canon’s sleeve.

The 30D is a good camera but, in the grand scheme of things, perhaps not an important one.
