Canon EOS 30D

Canon_30D
Review Date: May 14, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,200.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Well priced, responsive, reliable, great battery life, sturdy yet relatively light, low ISO noise, seperate RGB histograms, spot metering is a godsend.
Cons:
Has a very slight tendency to underexpose, which can take some time to get used to.

I upgraded to the 30D from a 300D which I had used fairly heavily for the previous two years. In Japan, the 30D was released at a fantastic starting price, and also seems to be terrific value elsewhere in the world.

The responsiveness and speed of the camera is very pleasing compared to the 300D - The camera will be the one waiting for you, and not the other way around (and so it should be).

Spot metering is great, the larger LCD is useful, and the battery life is superb.

Besides professionals who need the large files, weather sealing or burst speeds of the 1-series cameras, and the pretentious consumers who imagine they do, I can't think how anyone could possibly outgrow this camera. It will serve me well for years to come.

Highly recommended!
