The EOS 30D is Canon’s latest mid-range SLR digital camera. It builds on the strengths of the semi-pro EOS 20D, but contrary to expectations, the EOS 30D features the same purpose-designed 8.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with 1.6x crop.
Even without an increase in pixel count over its predecessor, the EOS 30D still has much to offer serious photographers. Advances over the 20D include a larger monitor, spot metering, a more durable shutter mechanism, and improved file handling.
