"Canon's EOS-30D is a new affordable masterpiece. WOW"5.0 starson by FAU
Pros: This camera has pro features found in Canon top of the line Cameras
Cons: None whatsoever.
Summary: Canon EOS-30D Serial No. 03203xxxxx: One of the reasons that Canon as an enterprise excels in this new world of Digital Single Reflex Cameras, is that they move the technology that has been refined in their flagship professional equipment, to the semi-pro or consumer gear. The 30D is an excellent example of Canon bringing several very important Pro features. The most obvious is the large, clear, high resolution LCD display; the same display used in Canon’s $4000 pro equipment. The Picture Styles color feature is also present on this model. Many of the reviews I have read recently do not give full credit or understanding of this dramatic utility for Color management. Read the manual packed with the camera and experiment with this feature; you will be surprised at how powerful and easy to use this feature is. For those that want to know all about the features and menus go to Phil Askey’s dpreview.com.

This camera has unbelievable WOW factor for any class of user. I have used and/or own the best Canon digitals and this camera adds to a great line-up of cameras. As a teaching Pro, I for one like the pop-up flash, and wish Canon's flagship camera had a built-in flash. Sometimes, for candid work, you just don’t want to carry so much equipment, including the 580EX flash. Another feature I like is the Auto ISO feature. This is like committing heresy for a supposed Pro, wanting any AUTO features. Well too bad; sometimes, yes infrequently, I want to spend ALL my attention on the subject, and do not want any distractions with all these settings. I am a technology “kindaguy” and read all the documentation two or three times. No matter sometimes I go for the big GREEN box and go full auto… It works well too. The images shown are not fancy, hand picked ones. They are straight from the camera with no editing whatsoever. Over the next several weeks I will continue to add shots (and coments)with differing composition and venues. Look at the EXIF data for camera settings, shutter speed and f-stops. The lens used was Canon's new 24mm-105mm IS "L" zoom with the IS on. JimWilson/29MAR2006//9pm/EST.
