The Canon EOS 30D is the following of level of the Canon EO 20D camera. It is an advanced feature of the previous model. Canon EOS 30D is quite a huge step from the normal cameras. What the Canon EO 20D offers is a larger LCD monitor, slightly bigger developments and improvements in areas such as the metering, burst speed and the duty cycle of the shutter mechanism, and slightly minor improvements in the way the camera functions or in any other words, the functions of the Canon EOS 30D. According to ‘Business Week’, the Canon EOS 30D takes up where the 20D left off. This Canon digital SLR camera offers many more customized settings than the previous version Canon EOS 20D. The features that are liked and appreciated by many are the excellent low-light performance of the camera, it’s fast and responsive, its controls are straightforward, and on the whole, it has a nice balance of features for both experienced and rookie photographers. Their F2.8 lenses are very much appreciated too. That somehow helps in making the pictures taken look good because with it, the viewfinder is bright and is focusing crisp. Some of its users are referring to the Canon EOS 30D as an almost flawless camera. A certain user recommended this camera to anyone who’s starting out on SLRs because it’s easy to be used right out of the box. One would like it for its low noise functions. CNET describes this model similar to the Canon EOS 20D, with the same well-balanced, magnesium-alloy body with its intelligently laid-out controls; an almost identical set of pro-level, extremely customizable features; and roughly the same, excellent performance. And also, with the identical 8-megapixel CMOS sensor and image-processing system, it yields the same superb photos, especially at high-ISO sensitivity settings.
